The other day in the Dead & Company thread on Facebook, some guy was complaining about getting a hard time from older Heads because he never saw Jerry and so would never get the real experience, yadda yadda... He thought this was especially unfair because he wasn't even born till 1997. Whenever we each got on the bus, we've all heard something similar, with people pontificating that we can't possibly be Dead Heads because we never saw a)Jerry b)Pigpen c)Keith and Donna .... We were all new once. So welcome, new Heads AND old ones. Tell your tales here.

Summer's here and the time is right...for hitting the road. And while some folks enjoy the tours and the fests in deluxe accommodations, plenty of others are watching every dime to make it all happen. How have YOU survived on tour? Any great tales of where to get good food or a place to stay at a decent price? Any businesses that welcome Our Kind (or at least don't freak out when we come to town)? Clever vending strategies (let's stick to the ones that will not attract unwelcome attention from law enforcement here, as on the Internet anyone can be reading anything...)?

As long as I've been a Dead Head, which is coming up on 30 years now, it's been a running joke with my friends that we would all eventually go off together and retire to the old hippies' home. Now, of course, we're about ready for the old hippies' home, for real.

 So, where should people like us (which encompasses a pretty diverse demographic!) retire to?
