Hooray!

As I asked for it, guess I should start talking, eh? My real name is René, and originally I come from Chicago. First Dead show was in 87 or 88, and caught a show whenever I could, up until 1992, when I moved to Germany. Had a job opportunity here, and decided why not try Eurpope for a while. Would be an adventure, right? It was indeed, but am still here, amongst a population where it is few and far between that anybody has even HEARD of the Grateful Dead. But I digress. Was rough to adjust here, in the beginning, but I learned alot about life in America by leaving, and now I do not care to go back. Or at least for the moment. But what I DO miss are the community of friends who are Deadheads, the dancing frenzy late at night to somebody's tape, the exposure to tapes I haven't heard before, the joy seeing of a car driving by with a Deadhead bumpersticker and knowing is a potential friend, talking about show experiences with somebody/anybody without having them look at me with a blank stare on their face, and and and. Have met the occasional Deadhead here, even a guy in Düsseldorf who saw the shows in '72, but is uncommon. Anyhow, am done w/Germany now, and will be moving to Sevilla in the fall. Again not Deadfanland there exactly. But is enough blabbering from me for now. Will be back again, for sure!
