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!

So Glad To Find This Website

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.

Hi everyone!

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

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.

I did dead tour from 1989-1994 I was not a regular because I had a son. But when I tour I stayed close to the Wrecking Crew. I lived in Denver and Traveled between Denver and San Fransico. I want to find old friends. I want to hear about the old times and see pictures. I want to be in contact with people I considered family. Although the last time I saw everyone I had a bit of a freak out!
