At one point the Cocker Spaniels consisted of only Padilla. While going on a five-week tour from Texas to Illinois, New York, and Florida; Padilla worked on both the tour and his accounting job out of his van. Booking his last tour was exhausting for him; he had to spend a few months to recuperate. His tour lasted five weeks and it was a tour he ventured solo. Occasionally staying with friends in the cities he visited in but he did stay in his van on one occasion to ensure he was rested and to prevent an automotive accident.
