This January 21st and 22nd, the Rapid Transit producers traveled to beautiful Athens, Georgia to host the opening premiere of The Eddy Feeling (see below for a synopsis). Athens is a fantastic town, and it was the right place to kick off the Southeast tour of premieres for this first DVD from Rapid Transit. The festivities began on the evening of the 21st with a boat demo at UGA’s indoor pool.
The thousand yard stare.
We awoke the following morning at Chez Windham (a beautiful country retreat built by Daniel and his father) and proceeded to laze around and eat breakfast casserole. About midday we headed into town and settled at a coffee shop where Daniel worked on a short video for the premiere, Spencer and Robin each whittled away at business, and I drank a gallon-and-a-half of coffee:
Robin, in the zone.
Too much coffee . . .
That night we returned to the Windham house to celebrate Daniel’s birthday with his fine family. Lasagna, cake, and wine, but no spankings for Daniel–give him one the next time you see him.

A very old cat.
After dinner, it was back into Athens and the Cine Theater where a goodly crowd of Georgians joined us for the show. This was the highlight of the week, and we want to send a big shout out to the UGA Whitewater club and all the folks who came out and made it such a good evening.
Day and night at Cine.
