It might not have to end, but you might want it to.
I went to see Gov't Mule in New Orleans for Halloween once (I'm near Chicago). we were on the road longer than we were in New Orleans. Fun? You bet. But now, I just don't want to drive all that time when I have a great family at home.
I think up road trips all the time, but while some might be worth it (always good to take a breather, man), others just aren't anymore.
Around '79, a friend dropped by the house one afternoon to announce that The Dixie Dregs were playing at a venue 3 hours away that night, and the opening act was Eric Johnson, recently from The Electromagnets.
We didn't have to think twice, and within 20 minutes we were on the road.
Fast forward 32 years. Family and work commitments dictate there's only so much time off I can take a year, not to mention baseball, scouts and you-name-it-what-else. So a friend offered me free tickets, including backstage, full access to join him in Chicago for Clapton's most recent Crossroads Fest.
It took me less than 20 minutes to gratefully not accept.
That doesn't look like the Vogue, which is where those guys used to play all the time.
Roadtripping to see bands you love it always worth it & it doesn't have to end... though it may slow down & you'll need to pick your spots.
I used to travel to Indy all the time & it was a great "base" to see shows... plenty of shows right in Indy, plus 3 hours or less from Chicago, Cincy, Columbus, Louisville, Lexington, Springfield, IL, etc. I made road trips from there all the time.
