Pictures from the Where’s Aubrey Habitat Show 12.29.17

Leave a comment

We played a show last year. Hah. OK, last year was only 7 days ago, but it’s true. During the show, we dropped a new CD called “diversion” which you can order for yourself. Have a listen to our favorite track!

BTW, the super delicious cover art is by Eli McGraw.

Collectively, we raised $1181 for Habitat for Humanity’s work in Clarke County, bringing Where’s Aubrey’s all concert total to $15,662.

The concert was a blast to play. Here are some pictures. In each set, we started out with only two people on stage, Gary McGraw on violin and Rhine Singleton on guitar.

Eventually (during both sets) we were joined by stunt guitarist Allen Kitselman and drummer Nick Schrenk (both of the Bitter Liberals).

The highlight of the evening for us was honoring our biggest fan and long time Berryville arts supporter Michael Hobert. Here’s what I said about Michael from the stage.

The energy was palpable during the show. Thanks to the 100+ people who came to see Where’s Aubrey perform. We’ll be back.

Roller Coaster Complete: 6.3 Miles on the AT

Leave a comment

Ten days ago we did 7 of the 13.3 miles between Ashby Gap and Snickers Gap on the Appalachain Trail. Turns out we did the hard part first. Yesterday, we finished off the segment, starting on Jen’s road and heading down to Route 50. Esther and Chris joined us.

The hike is in our back yard. If you know where you’re looking from Bear’s Den, you can see the monastery.

Ashby gap (on route 50) to Snickers gap (on route 7) is in our back yard

What was most striking was the difference that 10 days make in the woods. Though our hike was much warmer, there were not many leaves left!

Start on Jen’s Road

We saw some lichen. Or was that moss?

Roller Coaster complete! (shew)

We took the yellow car back to the truck.

Seven Mile on the AT (in the backyard hike)

Start 4.5 miles from home (less than a mile from Jen’s house). Hike seven miles. Is it a roller coaster? Yes it is.

Seven mile.

Here is the story in pictures.

Park the truck on Jen’s road.

Foundation (not the Asimov one)

Orange sprite.

Lunch spot off the trail

Up to this point, we saw 7 people (one walked by while we were eating lunch…going our way). 6 Were going the other way.

Lunch WILL be here!

We were passed by an old man with a stick. He was on his way up and then back down.

Jack and I stayed in this shelter in the rain when he was 5

The roller coaster ends at Bear’s Den. Shew!

Bear’s Den feet of the orange sprite…which are purple?!

Greetings From the Bronze Age and Beyond

The Museo Archeologico on Cagliari (Sardegna, Italy) is well worth a quick visit.

The Museo Archeologico is situated on the castle hill

In the Paleolithic, fat was “in.”

In the Bronze Age, everyone had a bronze axe. We would imagine that bronze axe heads were the moral equivalent of the smart phone.

A stack of axe heads

A stone cast

Everyone also had little bronze guys to play with.

Your army awaits

One of many attractive displays

The rich kids had really big bronze guys.

Then came the Romans and their heads

In these pictures, a statue wonders about its sexuality.

Non-binary?

Hmmm

About the only thing the Museo could improve is to open up their wifi to all. Really, in 2017 if you want the ragazzi to come, you need wifi.

There were plants

A visit to the Orto Botanico in Caglieri is in order.

The small museum is worth a visit too.
