When I left the house to head back to Florida on April 1 at 8PM, I realized about 2 miles down the road that I had no headlights on the van. The parking lights and everything else was working, but no headlights. I was hoping it wasn't a fuse or even worse, an internal electrical problem. Since it was already dark, I had to drive with the brights on, since I had a 1o hour drive ahead of me. My friend, Dale, who is a master auto technician in St Petersburg, called me back and told me to pull over and tap the lights to see if they might have just shorted out. About 2 hours later, in Macon, GA, I did just that, and the right light came on. Since I didn't want to drive too far, I went another hour or so to Cordele, GA, and pulled over into a Wal Mart to spend the night. In the morning I would head to an auto parts store for a bulb. Luckily, O'Reilly Auto Parts had the part I needed, and then I was on my way to Cocoa Beach for my solo acoustic gig at the Beach Shack.
