Save the #drivehouse!

2 years ago my family decided we wanted to set off on journey, which we called the Drivehouse. 

We would travel with my husbands band , while homeschooling across the United States.

After spending most of the last 8 years apart, me at home with the (3) kids and him (Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers) on the road with his band, we decided we had to do something drastic in order to be together. 

We worked tirelessly.  Ridding our lives of most of our possesions, we were prepared to take this year and really live. To be together, with the world at our feet.

We put everything we had into our 1975 Airstream and last night, I crashed it.

If you know our story, you know the devistation we are feeling. If you are new to the Spaghetti Family - this was everything. This was a wild idea that we wanted so bad. We wanted adventure and most of all we wanted to be together.

We are not a lost cause. We will not fold our cards and quit but we are definitely in a pickle. Insurance is doing their thing and we are thankful no one was hurt. We are so lucky.

We decided as a family, it wouldn't hurt to reach out for help. We will need to relocate the family, as we are stuck in Tulsa, OK waititng for the longest weekend in the world to be over. Eddie must finish this leg of the tour, he is flying to Denver tomorrow (solo) and somehow, someway we all must get ourselves back on track. 

Honestly, I don't know how that looks yet. I'm heartbroken, I have no words. 

I don't know how to pick up the pieces and I don't know what to tell the kids other than we are all okay, we will figure it out.

Anything helps.

"What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?"

It has ben a couple weeks since the last update and I am happy to be currently be here and not there.

Basically we have only the people, family and friends that have rallied around us to thank. Our accident was/is expensive/heartbreaking and it really knocked the wind out of me. To have the community embrace us is something we will never forget.

Our car situation has suddenly gotten exciting. We have set our eyes on a beautiful ride, that will take our family all over the US, even after a rough start. We will spend the spring and most of the summer living in hotels and backstage and walking the road less traveled. After a lot of heartache and tears, I am finally happy. And ready.

Spent the last few weeks at my Moms in AZ. It has been a home base for more that the month of March, it has let me get past a lot of things and this accident was a big one. I'm still working hard on forgiveness. No one can really just make that go away but I'm trying.

Along this journey we met a guy named Jeff. Well, when I say "met" I mean we were "e-troduced" to him via FB and he has basically decided that he is the guy that can do what was said can't be done. Jeff will be going to Tulsa, from OKC, himself and picking up El Jefe. With time, money and fucking badass skills- he has given us a glimmer of hope. More than a glimmer but I'm keeping my expectations in check. But how cool is that?
We have to buy the trailer from the insurance company but I believe, and I think Jeff would agree, anything can be fixed. I didn't believe that for a little while, it's good to be back.

So first things first. Secure the ride, fill the tank and chase the good life because I still don't know why this crazy thing happened to us but I know we will be better for it. My core was shaken and even though it was complete bullshit- I am confident in knowing it will take us somewhere, someplace we might've never been.

It is a complete honor to be thought of in such high regard. That my family would mean so much to so many is something that we are really finding comfort in, at a time when nothing is comforting.
Thank you from
the Spaghetti Family

I can't explain how this feels.
I will take a risk and sound completely vulnerable but we are lost right now and knowing we have not only financial support but real heartwarming people out there... We are forever thankful. Maybe something good will come out of this. Honestly, I can't see it. The silver lining is still lost on me.
But thank you. Thank you.

I definitely think your plan was a good one, and even though this happened you should press on with it - new vehicle, new trailer, whatever you need. 12 months from now it will have been worth it.

We don't have much right now (baby on the way), but we'll give what we can. Thanks for all the years of music and the best live shows in the nation. When you put as many good vibes into the world as you have, eventually some of that's gonna reverberate back to you, despite the recent loss of El Jefe. Best wishes
