"When's the last time you got to sleep outside? It's probably been way too long! Now imagine your tent surrounded by trees and hundreds of the coolest, down-to-earth people that all love the same music you do at the 3G's Music Festival. Oh ya, don't worry about sleeping on the ground – after a day of rocking out, drinking beers, followed by a late night jam and snack – you'll be out in no time!

you should come out to the barn in bethlehem nh, it's kinda our version of the family dog. Thursday's is open mic and about once a month there is an event. It's a community effort run by volunteers it's where jerryjam got it's start. This weekend jatoba (blue grass band) is playing on saturday for earth day. The grateful sled is doing highway clean up then we all head to the barn for music and food.
looks like a great time camping out by the ammanoosuc river. hope the weather is good this year!
in the northeast you need to come to jerryjam. This year will mark it 17th anniversary it all started at someones barn and just kept growing this year we have 21 bands. It's very family friendly if you bring your pet please make sure they are leashed yes you can bring your faithful friend and plus i might be mc this year please check this out at jerryjam.com hope to see you there
L Rob, you've been around too long for me to believe that you actually think Bobby would consider listening to the rants of anyone he sees here...

one of the people involved in the crime at the wakarusa festival has posted on this site,(this very BBS), wakarusa.com, (a now closed)youtube & jambase using the nickname "ooplik". if you ever feel like assisting in identifying that individual for said attempted murder, feel free to do so.--repeated requests that wakarusa provide info from its in house BBS that may help identify the perpetrator hiding behind that particular nickname, to the relevant jurisdiction have been met with outright refusal.
weir, greene, & robinson, have allowed their respective management agencies to perform at the wakarusa festival in franklin county, as you may be aware, this festival does not use properly licensed festival, and should you sustain an injury here, or be the victim of a violent crime on the event campus, said security concern will NOT render aid or attempt to arrest the perpetrator(s) even if they directly witness said crime.-I was not the only person violently attacked at this event, and there were numerous reports of suppression of reporting of violences at the 2010 edition as well (source; st bernards crew volunteers).
mr weir, as a longtime fan and sublicensee who has attended literally 1000s of your shows, and mssrs greene & robinson, (whom I have also attended scores of performances by, nationwide). in light of -in particular- mr weirs decision to perform at a benefit for a sn francisco giants fan who was severely injured at a los angeles dodgers game (and reportedly, not assisted by that organisations security personnel), I respectfully request that you have your management team rethink this decision to perform at this decidely unsafe event.
if you or your team have any questions for me, regarding what i (and others)feel is not safe for your fans I can be reached via the following email firstname.lastname@example.org or (720) 838-6564.
ps-it did not escape mine (and others) that your management team had the presence of mine to schedule last years furthur festival the same weekend as this event, (in what appeared to be a rather strong 'hint', to your fans, that they were 'safer' at an actual grateful dead event, than the poor excuse for a venue that mulberry mountain/wakarusa operates (semi-illegally, no less)*
* i will also be happy to share with you the letter I received in the US mail from an attorney in lawrence, ks, threatening to sue me for 'libel', for publishing the fact that the wakarusa festival does not use licensed security as per AR law
