    AND I HATE IT!!!!
    I've been up in the forest house-sitting and watching the dog while daughter and her old man are away on vaca. It's been a week and I'm going crazy without something to strum on. I used to keep a cheap acoustic up at the local bar (she works at) for their open mike nights but I got rid of that a couple years ago. I didn't ride the bike up because of the rainy forecast and I should have thought to bring something to occupy my time. Boring as he77 here when it rains. All I've been doing is picking the calluses off my fingers. Oh well, it's 12:20 and it's time for my second nap already.

    One does not simply "got rid of" a cheap acoustic guitar. I've filed a report with my local blues police about your casual lack of concern for guitar time.

    I pulled that out of there a couple years ago. People would get a few drinks in them and THINK they could play. It was just a cheap Ovation but drunks were jacking it all up.

    Craigslist. Find something cheap. Even an unplugged $100 Squier will help reduce your pain. Take twice daily and once more before bedtime.

    It could be worse. You could be guitar sitting without a house!

    Hit up the thrift stores and yard sales and you will find probably something cheap.

    I was trying my best to travel as light as possible. AND.....StratoMutt ....it's funny you have that little pic of Bigfoot playing the guitar. They had a Bigfoot conversion in town over the weekend.....it was crazy, people everywhere. I was going to go have dinner at the local restaurant and could see the crowd from a distance. I turned right around and......a can of soup for dinner that night.....lol
