Being inside the tour with a drum corps is a remarkable experience and, actually, a luxury if you are taking vacation time to do it. The reality though is that, outside of the marching members and staff, the cooks are the hardest working persons on the tour. Preparing four meals for the members -- breakfast, lunch, dinner and post show snack -- is not cooking. It is stoop labor that is nonetheless exceptionally rewarding, a difficult concept to relate to anyone who has not had the experience of being a part of the tour. There are no guarantees that you will enjoy the experience but there is only one way to find out. I hope you give it a shot.
