Talk about a long and hot summer, but we did it! The first year for House of Marley sponsoring a stage at the Vans Warped Tour is now complete. I know I speak for everyone at HOM when I say we loved having our own stage to share the mission of Marley with each and every one of you!

Having said that, this will be my final blog from the road. Today I’m writing from the Portland airport before flying home to southern California. It feels so good to be back on the best coast – oops, I mean west coast.

Yesterday was actually my first full day off in two months. I slept in, and then went with a few friends to a beautiful “lazy” river in the Oregon mountains. I was told not to tell anyone where it is because it’s a “locals only” spot, but next time you’re in the Pacific Northwest, keep your eyes peeled for “Sandy Beach” off the Columbia River.

Anyway, back to the tour… If I had to pick the ten best shows we had this summer, it would have to be Denver, San Francisco, Ventura, Cuyahoga Falls, Tinley Park, Mansfield, St. Petersburg, and Milwaukee. I mean, all the shows were amazing in their own way, but these will be the shows that I will personally remember the most.

Before I sign off, I just want to give a huge shout-out to all the bands, crew, and fans that made the House of Marley stage a reality every day on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour.

As a proper farewell, I’ve put together a little parting gift for you all: a playlist of my favorite songs from the House of Marley stage at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. Until next year, my friends….
