Enoch Train: 'Dead Air' in Norway
OSLO, NORWAY -- Performers have an aversion to "dead air"-time passing with
no focus or entertainment value. Get a group of performers together and
you'll rarely experience dead air. So while waiting for our bus there are
hand-stand contests, wild photo sessions, singing, joking around, etc. All
the entertainers for Sea Trek 2001, Kurt Bestor, Jenny Frogley, George Dyer,
Darrell and Jenny Babidge, Elias Robinette, Alex Boye, Enoch Train, T-Minus
Friday and The House Band, are on a bus this morning headed for Oslo,
Norway...and there is no dead air. The Sea Trek staff is on the lower level
of our double-decker bus and I don't know if there is any dead air on their
The drive is alternately charming and awe-inspiring. Quaint farms and
villages alternate with deep gorges, beautiful fjords, rocky crags, lush
forests and beautiful fields. Sweden and Norway are magnificent! We've been
on the road over a week now and have had no free time to speak of. So first
order of business as we get into Oslo is finding a laundromat.
The group that launders together...I won't go there, but Enoch Train
monopolizes a small laundromat six or seven blocks from our hotel, cleans
the local liquor store out of change for the laundry machines, and plays
ball in the side street with a ball Dixie Hopkins found in the laundromat.
We don't finish doing our laundry until 7:30 in the evening, so dinner is
late, leaving only time to update my email reports before heading to bed at
2:30 in the morning. I fear this is becoming a habit. Can someone help me?
