Help me with my dissertation - online interview/survey

Want a way to talk about what just happened?

I'm working on my dissertation and you can help by telling me about your Grateful Dead experience. The survey is meant to function like an interview, so fair warning - it takes some time.

Thanks in advance for helping me out. Much appreciated!

Please share if you know someone who would be interested.

GREATFUL DEAD SNOWBOARD?

As I understand it, somewhere around 1985, Jerry Garcia decided a Grateful Dead snowboard would be a great idea. A graphics company was commissioned to design one, and my late wife Sue Hill, a GD staffer in those days, was the point of contact.

Sooz never mentioned whether the thing ever went into production, but the prototype of Jerry's snowboard is still here in the basement. Can anyone tell me any more about the history of this project? It needs to find a good home.

A few pictures:

lazy river road

Thank you very much.
I like this song very much and I think the lyrics are maybe the best of the Dead.

My 2 cents, while the Grand Canyon was quite international,

my wife and I really enjoyed heading north to the variety of delights in Utah.
Bryce Canyon was transportive, so magical, much more intimate,
sparce crowds, and you can wander down
into these towering psyhcedelic spires morning or night.

Zion and Arches were spectacular as well.
Again quieter, but with astounding and spiritual vistas.
We definately want to return to those Utah sites/sights again.
Those Utah parks were intimate and wonderful.

You might look at books like Route 66 Backroads by Hinckley, Bowers et al. or 20 West by Mac Nelson for tips. I for one would visit the Blue Hole in New Mexico.
