Whatever you are doing out there, stay safe man! We want you back in one piece so we can watch your story unfold with your bus here.

I've always liked that name - French Lick. Too bad the town doesn't live up to it.

Sooooo disappointed to discover that the name just came from a French trading post built near a spring and salt lick. But hey...it was home to Larry Bird.
