Wiggled my way up to row 5 or so...high as a kite on a tab or two, wink wink..."Terrapin" especially was a richly rendered wonder of aesthetic form and lyrical profoundity...remember Bob was especially focused on guitar and Brent was fervidly intense on the keyboards...and at the end The Dead took off in their helicopter, leaving us mere mortals with ringing ears and a long way home (or an infinite journey to the car at least). The blazing peak of an indelible weekend...

Guys (and girls),
The ultralight flew over THE NEXT NIGHT, while they were playing Bird Song... a cool irony.
I agree with all previous comments that these shows were a special time. SPAC; great place, average show this year. Rochester; cool stadium, fantastic show. Oxford; lay roots in the parking lot for days, best scene I ever particpated in, two excellent shows.
Funny parking lot moment: After (I think) the first show, a group of friends and I were walking around the parking / camping areas enjoying our buzzes and each others company as we meandered about running into a beautiful mix of music, drums, campfires and so on. We came across this monster dome tent in a dark and quiet area of one of the lots. We stood there and admired this thing for a few minutes making such comments among ourselves as "Man, that thing is huge", "I've never seen a tent that big", "Holy crap, look at that thing". After a bit of this, my friend noticed a note taped to the tent near the door. We approach the thing trying to read it in the dark and finally make out the one sentence, "Wow, what a big tent !!!" Seemed really funny to us that someone could read our minds when they were not even there. I guess we weren't the only ones to admire the tent that day.

Lawlessness, but no need for cops, everyone policed themselves. Those were the days!
Does anyone remember that there was a small planes airport nearby, and at night when the planes were coming in campers were shooting fireworks toward the planes?(being close to 4th of July) They were coming in low over the lot and turning green and purple, etc. with explosions all around. I was surprised that the cops didn't even come for that. Maybe it was just the hallucinagenics!?!
Check out this link to more photos of that great scene.
Don't miss pages 2 & 3 also.
I forgot I already posted the link.
great time, great show...
i met some great people..especially raven (girl), phil from new hampshire..i remember it started to rain and i made my way back to our pick up and when i got there i lifted up the back and there was 3 people in the back drinking my beer....the guy said..."hey man, it was raining, so we jumped in the back and fancied a beer, here, we have this"..then pulled out a huge bag of weed and we all got stoned sitting in the back of the pick up whilst the rain lashed down outside..
you cant buy memories like these
