My name is katrinka and I'm a Bay Area Flower Geezer, first show 1968 - San Francisco.
I use the same login name in many different forums. I think I first posted on Usenet's rec.music.gdead in late 1994, right after I got my first internet connection. It was definitely while Jerry was still with us, and I remember reading and posting about the 1995 "tour from hell" and discussions of ways we hoped to help clean up the scene next tour.
Then, after Jerry died, Robert Hunter started his online journal and mailbag, and next thing you know I was part of a living, breathing online community - Dead.Net Central ( DNC.) Within a short time there was a gathering of DNCers at a Bay Area show, and also the RMGD community had some get-togethers, and gradually my "real" life and my "cyber" life became intertwined. (Not to mention the Zero/Steve Kimock community, which became very active during that same time frame, when Steve Kimock was living just north of SF.)
I never really had a career. Back in 1969 I worked on two underground newspapers - the San Francisco Express Times and the Berkeley Tribe - during the Free Huey Lewis and People's Park eras. For a brief time I lived with the Congress of Wonders (as family member/nanny) and traveled with them to the desert south of Tucson Arizona, and then back to the California coast.
In 1972 I married the love of my life. He's a cultural anthropologist, and as an anthropologist's wife I was priveleged to participate in the "fieldwork" experience. even though I had no training. We traveled and lived interesting places for several years. But we gave that up to live in San Francisco after a consciousness-changing show in SF on 12/30/83. Something about the Terrapin Station that night made us decide to stay here.
I got a job in the printing business, since I had a little experience there (from when we lived in Kansas - but that's another story) and I ended up managing a small print shop for several years before retiring.
These days I live on the coast, just south of San Francisco, and I still go to as many shows as I can.
Hey all you kind folks, My name is Ocean River, pleased to meet all you kind folks. I was born and raised in Southern Wisconsin, but now live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado =) =) =)
I grew up just outside of Gettysburg (Fairfield). Anyway, I minored in philosophy. I thought that it would go well with my English degree! lol!
