Looking forward to playing too!

Hi K,

Looking forward to playing with you too! I had a great jam yesterday afternoon in the sun at my house as my kids and some of their friends ran around the yard and house. Some days it just flows.....yesterday was one of those.....it just flowed with no effort at all. Deal, Goin' DTR, BIODTL, FriendOTD, Fire on the M, Bird Song, SugarM, Dark Star, Ripple, Box of Rain.

I keep getting more excited about the show too. Listened to a Shakedown Street podcast and they played some recent FURTHER. The China Doll was so soulful....nice!

Enjoy your long weekend.....our weather looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so I bumped into some buddies in town and they say that they bought seats to ArtPark, so maybe there actually were seats but must have sold out right away. Didn't mean to give you false hope, Playin... I'm keen to mill around the lawn, and supposedly it's a small venue anyway, so the lawn won't be too far from stage view. It's all good as far as I'm concerned!

I'll be booking a site at Four Mile Creek this weekend. Looking forward to the jam!

Booked spot #171 Four Mile Creek Campground

Hi K and all,

There are lots of campsites (looks like most still available). Hope you others will consider camping at that park too! I have picked a non-electric site. I will have my acoustic bass guitar with me and would love to play with any of you who come by or just hang out around the fire for those without instruments. Oh boy, camping, bonfires, acoustic jamming and experiencing Further and other Deadheads......well if I have to....the sacrifaces we must make....

I am hoping my wonderful wife will be able to join me. Though, she is taking a course this summer (May to July) on teaching kindergarden with the hopes this will give her a leg up on getting a job. Anyway if she can't join us I will still be there perhaps with a cousin or friend in tow.

I'm so looking forward to it. When I think of it, it makes me smile. The anticipation is almost alone worth the price. :)

Anyway, I hope more of you head to ArtPark. The outdoor venue looks beautiful.

Playin in the Artpark!!

Hey there, thanks for the updates, Playin!

I am super excited to hear that you're coming to ArtPark - I will find a way to meet you there. Guess what? Don't be bummed about your seats - the whole thing is general admission - at least that's how it seemed even on the first day of ticket sales. I think we will enjoy milling about freely in a beautiful venue. Camping - I originally thought it would be easy to go back across the border to stay in Ontario, but it might be fun to find a campground so we can stay and keep the party rolling. Looks like Four Mile Creek is the closest State Park, and there's a KOA Niagara. This is shaping up to be a mighty good time.

Yay!!!!

Going to see Further :) :0 :) !!!!!!

Hi all,

Well I'm going to ArtPark (Lewiston/Buffalo) July 8th!!!!!!!!!
Hooray!!!

Lawn tickets were all that were left at this time. Wish I had had of gotten around to this sooner. :( Oh well, the freedom of movement with no seats should be fun and the clips of shows I have been hearing are promising of elation to come.

Does anyone know about camping in the area?

Wake and Bake

Hey Lamagonzo,

On those wonderous wake and bake days I tend to have 6 outrageous ideas a minute. Thanks for making me think of waking and baking and I hope you have many wonderfully outrageous ideas today.

All the Best,

Waken'n'bake

I often have 6 outrageous ideas before breakfast.

And often act on at least three of them... I try & tune it down for the rest of the day, though.

Hello my friends

Hi all I'm still here and still listening and playing.

Well:

Just enjoyed a great March Break.
We went to the beach for a day, played laser tag with my kids and nephews (My name was "Dark Star") it was great fun, enjoyed a couple of beers in the sun on the front lawn listening to music with my wife and her sister in the sun while the kids biked, scooted, jumped and played (it felt like summer vacation).
Saw Alice and Wonderland iwith my kids in 3-D yesterday. Enjoyed Tim Burton's adaption...Great morals and messages (a lot of archetypal things were happening...atleast in my mind) throughout including something repeated through the film.....It's O.K. to be partly mad most of the best people are.....Another good one on imagination..... I often have 6 outrageous ideas before breakfast (or something oalong that line).......Anyway, I think I related to the Mad Hatter best. After we left the theatre (beautiful and sunny outside) my daughter stopped in a parking spot and got into an invisible car. I apon grasping the situation got into the drivers seat and we drove off......anyway heres to imagination in action!
Watched the first 3 Star Wars movies with the family.
Read a good an interested book I have long wanted to read. Farenheit 451.
I visited with my sister one afternoon last week (alone...a nice and rare occurrence-normally with kids in tow).
Went to T.O. with a friend to meet another there....went out for all you can eat sushi and a few beers....fun...enjoyed a pipe and a fun and wonderfully strange movie "Bubba Hotep".
Played more guitar, learned a couple more dead songs - Deal and Bird Song. Oh yah Dark Star too! Just stumbled upon that one in a jam.

Anyway. It was hard for us all to get back at it this morning – I’m pacing myself today....think I’ll have more coffee shortly.

All your concert outings sound great. Yes I am hopeful to get out to see a further show this summer.
Also I have been enjoying the podcast "Dead air with Uncle John".
On one show they opened with an awesome "Samson and Delilah". I was having one of those transporting feelings and was very pleased and surprised to hear it was actually Further and not a GD recording.

Keep enjoying life,
