Fans Travel 3350 Miles to See APX
Thu., Aug. 8. 2013 9:09am EDT

We had a very special surprise waiting for us at our concert in Cambridge City IN on July 27. Two longtime fans, Curtis and Clinton Chicoine, flew from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Canada to be at the show. That's a 3100-mile round trip!

Actually, they flew into Cincinnati and drove to Cambridge City so it was 3350 miles. We asked them what else brought them so far to this show, and they said they had built their vacation around our concert, although they also visited some Ohio theme parks.

Both Curtis and Clinton emailed us afterward. Here are some excerpts from what they said:

Thank you again for taking the time to meet with the fans after the concert in Cambridge City and then introduce Clinton and myself to the band members. That was certainly the highlight of the trip, although the high point was Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point (420 ft.). We are now safely back on the ground in Saskatoon.

I've really enjoyed the 20:20 Vision CD and I probably listen to the "Good News/Bad News" track more than any other. My favourite Apologetix song is "Cheap Birds." (Editor's note: That's ironic, since it probably wasn't very cheap for Curtis and Clayton to fly all that way to see us!)

The first time I ordered CDs back in 2001 they mysteriously disappeared in the mail two times and you kindly sent the shipment a third time, again at no additional cost. It was an exercise in patience, and I appreciated your character in sending the order again.

Thank you for this ministry over the years. God's peace.

Curtis Chicoine

One thing to add to Curtis's email which he didn't tell you: The reason we took this vacation was to celebrate his graduation from medicine. He is Dr. Curtis Chicoine, Psychiatrist. His first official day on the job was five days after your concert.
