I had a few friends who

I had a few friends who ventured up there as well. One who I lost track of, actually, because he stayed up there.

Meanwhile, I can see that doing this here won't generate conversation with all that talk happening in the Shows area. Maybe next time I have some free time (!!) I'll put some links in.

that Anchorage show...

one for the ages, as far as I'm concerned. Over in the Shows area, we've got a post or two from folks who were actually there. Sun never went down, they said.

I didn't come along till six months later, and really regret missing this show.
