Bottomless Lakes of Adaline ~ Chooglin’ on Tracks #2

Getting settled in to train life, Uncle Weed and friends ponder the meal schedule, sleeping schedule, timezones, awesome showers, random rules, and what staff must think of them. With Grant Lawrence interviewing Adaline, she shares how she has used road rage for a musical muse. She also fills us in on what Tracks on Tracks has been like as an artist, comparing it to other events with many artists such as the Peak Performance Project where competition vs collaboration comes into play.
