Introducing Ourselves - Part 2
Since the original topic now has hundreds of introductions and is getting a bit hard to navigate, this seems as good a time as any to launch a new one.
The original is here, should you wish to catch up on the who's who since this opened up in May.
If you haven't introduced yourself yet, please do! And if you already have, but have something new to tell us about you and your life, speak up!
(A bit of housekeeping business so we don't have to repost everything we posted before--izzie and I are the moderators here, and for our more extensive intros see the original topic.)
Thanks and welcome!
Glad to be here and to get in touch with fellow people
Miss the shows
Hope to hear from ya
Hi, My name is Julie and ever since my last Grateful Dead show ( Indianapolis 95 ) I have been attending Gratefulfest. ( a 3-day music festival to honor Jerry, in Garettesville , Oh . on July 4th weekend ) . This is an awsome event. DSO headlines all three nights and there is always an appearance ( and an increadible set or two ) from Donna Godchaux, Jerry Garcia Band, and many others. If you have never been, it won't dissapoint. If you have been there - you go back again and again ! I live in Florida now, but get to Ohio ever year for this festival. The only thing that could make this event better, would be The Other Ones ! Come check it out . You can visit their website at nelsonsledges.com
nice to be here.
hope to run into you at some furthur shows ! kindness will return in many ways ! enjoy the site !
I found this site about four days ago,already feel at home. I work as a nanny for Olivia who is three years old and can sing trucking , box of rain and touch of grey from begining to end. She is pretty cool. I found the dead when a friend of mine Victor Scaracini who died 9/11/01 when his plane went into the World Trade Building. He was a pilot and gave me a recording of Blues for Allah. I had listened to led zepplin,pink floyd,black sabbath,Eric Clapton,Beatles, but did not hear anything like this. My soul came alive in a way it never did. The music was a message of love and hope. I have seen over 60 shows, and it was not enough. I wish there was a time machine to go just back for one show and get to watch it. I am 57 years old, worked as a nurses aide,teachers aide,library aide I guess I am just helpfull lol. About all I try to be as Jerry sang I try to be kind.
Here I come and I'm gone again!

I am in Chicago and would love to meet new folks to hang out with. Remember hearing some years ago about a bar that did a weekly (monthly?) Dead night, if anyone knows if that is still going on would be awesome to hear. I'm 42, married and got into the Dead too late :(...saw them about 5 times in the late 80s/90s but the first few times was just there for the party. Gradually got more into the actual music and now it's most of what I listen to. I have been able to see Furthur a couple times and am very excited about them, I think they are the best of the "post-Dead" bands. Other interests include yoga, biking, sports and beer! Nice to meet you all!!
I just got to say- this forum is so much more civil than similar bands forums. As to be expected....
I essentially toured the West Coast non-stop from '87 to '93 while I was finishing high school and attending UC berkeley. I move to San Antonio in 93 didn't help the show situation too much. Sold sodas after shows to support myself, slept in a lot of rest areas hanging out with some very cool people. I have never stopped listening to the Dead and apart from my current Dick's Picks obsession, I am a regular Dead podcast listener, aiming to keep things random.
