We just published a cool book that traces the "life and times" of a 1964 VW microbus, from its "birth" in a West German factory to its final resting place in San Diego. The book is told in a series of vignettes, and it's not always clear how the van figures into each section. The author, Lee Irby, has earned critical praise for his previous books, 7,000 CLAMS and THE UP AND UP. Check it out.
I found a website (Eden's Rose Foundation) and they announced a team up with the band for a good cause. The site does not sell the (yet) but had a form for preorders. I found some of these awesome hoodies on ebay but they don't seem legit. Does anyone know how I can get ahold of an official grateful dead alpaca hoodie that supports the good deeds of the Eden's Rose Foundation?!?

9 months of Unemployment have forced me to start selling some of my treasures. This is one of them: a 18" x 24" black and white photograph of the band from the sixties in Golden Gate park. This print was done in the 80's and was left in our communal house basement in a pile of junk that I had the fun task of cleaning out. At least this particular dirty job had a great reward when I found this collection of prints!
I am interested in serious offers, and I wanted to post it here in front of some true fans before I post this on Ebay. I have about 18 different photographs. Some have slight water damage around the edges, but would look very clean and nice if properly framed.
If the bid is right I'd be willing to sell the whole collection but otherwise I'll be selling these one at a time. My profile pic is the main photo of interest. There are lots of crowd shots, a few more band shots, a Haight Street scene, and some Hells Angels shots. I am working on getting the pictures uploaded to my website, which should happen later today. Thanks for looking!
I fell in love with the Dead and biking at the same time.
Gary Fischer Hoo Koo E Koo Dead Bones. 1995
Limited Edition 15.5 frame. Any wear on the bike is from time, not use.
I bought this new and I rode it twice in the mountains of banff.
When Jerry passed I put the bike up in my house on display with my other Dead memorabilia.
Over the years, after 4 children and 8 moves, I still have my bike.
To me this bike was symbolic of everything about me, my true Dead spirit of roamin the open road with an open heart.
I am in my last year of nurse anesthesia school and crunching numbers to pay the last bit of my massive tuition. I have hung on to my bike to the bitter end. Unfortunately, it is time to sell it. I have had multiple offers but no one who would love and appreciate this bike for the spirit it exemplifies.
The frame is inscribed the golden road to unlimited devotion...
Its time to let my bike go
"So take off your shoes, child
And take off your hat
Try on your wings
And find out where it's at"

I would like to buy this one either new or one in good condition. Or if someone can tell me where to get one.
Theres been rumours about reprints of DB series. All of them? From where you can buy them?
Thank you and Best Regards
