Friday, May 1st, 2009. Linden, CA 65 miles. Grass. Rain.
First of May, historically the opening date of the outdoor circus season dating back to the days of the wagon shows. The big rail shows usually opened indoors in late March or early April, then hit the road when May rolled around – and the later truck shows opened in the south in March, moving north. By May, according to tradition the weather is mild enough everywhere to play under canvas. Seems somehow appropriate that our first really rainy day of the season coincides with the date when a mudshow would once have started its touring. Good presale makes up for the weather.
