We made it to Odessa today about noon. I suspected that the hotel room wouldn't be ready yet, so we went immediately to the venue, to find the place and see if they need any help. The venue is the Ector County Coliseum, building G. We found the place and saw some pickup trucks parked outside Building G, so we went inside.
It's indoors, with air conditioning, which will be a huge advantage, simply for the factor of human comfort. We won't be sweltering in the west Texas heat, which is a balmy 99F right now. After we registered, we went to find the hotel and some lunch. We're ensconced in the room right now, and Milady has a glass of wine to relax her after 600 miles.
We'll go to the Meet-and-Greet in a couple of hours, then back to the room and get ready for a great shoot tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday.
