Frankly...

this is a topic for people in the Wharf Rats to talk amongst themselves and help each other out, not for others to give them a hard time and make fun of them. This topic will quickly lose its value if people don't feel safe posting here. Please stop. Thank you.

shack,shack..

so you went to school drunk and before you got on your bike had yourself a little "J",well brother thats your own fucking problem.alcohol and weed dont work well together,and if you have not understood this after the 1st time you came puking and with your brain turnin around like a wheel..to school than this is even worse,because it shows you dont learn from experience.but please dont mingle the Dead into your own uncapacity to learn,and stop chanting poems on how incredible the GD are when youre not drunk like a pig.oh,and what did you invent ,a special way of dead-talk?maybe that was necessary because drunk and on weed you must have been hard to understand..cheers:-)(-:

Howdy, all

I'm Brian, a Wharf Rat from Chicago (and elsewhere). Currently stuck in Lodi. Any of the folks from Indy's own "Rats NA Drain Ditch" around? Or anyone else who just wants to say hey?

Glad to have found the joint. Hope to keep coming back.

Brian

riding again!

hey kids, we are creating a lapse in "wharf rat page" responses again. i am not too sure that the little practice of doing that is too too good. meanwhile, after a while i felt like a bicycle was not gonna be a trigger for me. therefore i gotta new mt. bike. deadly on the road to school etc. ahhhh!!! i used to get all alcoholically buzzed with a glazed window of marijuana smoke and try to ride. sure i got it done, but the clear visionary thru these new "eyes of the world" is just so different and mo' betta!!! whew!!! i don't plan on tryin' to be sneaky and carry a cocktail today; so i will just get out the good old grateful dead and check out how wonderful this ride to class is sober. 1991 "deal" MSG, NYC. have a grateful day! peace, shack

Anyone got spring fever? I

Anyone got spring fever? I joined our local dead head meetup but no upcoming meetings as of now. I know Donna Jean is on tour, any other recommended road trip shows for this spring and summer?

Wharf Rat Meetings

Soooo I'm trying to find any real Wharf Rat presence on the net...and all the last mentions seem to be around 01 and 02. Any suggestions? I've been sober since october 17 2001 (and still go to meetings regularly) and SINCE then I've been to over 50 shows (RatDog/phil/TOO/Dead/DSO/Rhythm Devils/VW&F, etc.)...My family and I go to as many festivals each summer as possible, BUT I'd really like to get some kind of Wharf Rat community re-jumpstarted. Does anyone know how to access that AOL "rose garden" wharf-rat-meeting deal? I appreciate all responses. PS> Jerry was IT for me man...I even named my children after GD lyrics...there is nothing in the wolrd like those cascading arppegios....BUT not once in the 20+ shows I saw w/Jerry...did I have the kind of spiritual experience I've had at shows w/out him, SINCE I've been sober.-evan

On The Bus

My first show was 4/6/85 in Philly, and I loved it, I was on the bus right away. Now I am happy to say, and be able to realize what I am saying it, (!!) that I'm still on the bus, but I also got on the wagon!, 3 years 3 months clean and sober.
The Grateful Dead is ALL about the music, the sound, the togetherness. It's not about what you can get in the lot that will totally annihilate you.
I want to read through all these posts, but I just trekked into the forum for the first time tonight and I'm a bit tired. Glad to know everyone is out there!!
Stay strong, stay sober and listen to the music play!!!

Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!
