EVENTUALLY I'll be ready and able to travel again. Get out and perform or just get out and enjoy the beach, concerts, parks, whatever. I got to thinking about how far away from the rest of the world I am here on Peanut Road. When I lived in Steinhatchee I though little of getting in the truck and driving down to the Tampa area or over to Jacksonville on occasion. Or Tallahassee, Gainesville or White Springs which were somewhat closer.

So I made up a list of places and distances for this location. In case I lose it, I'll post it here. That way I'll always know where it is and won't need to look them up again!

Graceville FL 3
Chipley FL 12
Marianna FL 20
Bonifay FL 21
Dothan AL 22

Blountstown FL 45
DeFuniak Springs FL 50
Panama City FL 65
Bainbridge GA 65
Crestview FL 75
Tallahassee FL 85

Ft Walton Beach FL 100
Thomasville GA 105
Montgomery AL 125
Pensacola FL 125
Tuskegee AL 125

Valdosta GA 145
Perry FL 150
White Springs / Lake City FL 190

Birmingham AL 220
Gainesville FL 230
Jacksonville FL 250

Atlanta GA 290
New Orleans LA 310
Brooksville FL 320
Orlando FL 340
Tampa FL 360

Knoxville TN 405
Corinth MS 445 (only a few miles south of my sister's home)
Nashville TN 450

Ft Myers FL 490
Memphis TN 505
Charlotte NC 530

Little Rock AR 625
Miami FL 640
Cincinnati OH 645

St Louis MO 770
Springfield MO 800
Chicago IL 840
Tulsa OK 905
Kansas City MO 975

New York City 1160

How far is too far for an open mike or other unpaid gig? Anything within 25 miles or so would be 'local' and okay. Further out starts to get iffy. 100 miles? One would need to sell a lot of CDs and/or get lots of newsletter sign-ups to make that worthwhile. Or really, really enjoy it!
