I attended this show, but

I attended this show, but regretably I made the mistake of driving 5 hours from Valdez after working a 12 hour shift the night before, and instead of getting some shuteye during the afternoon I partied, hence I slept through a good portion of the show. I did get to meet Jerry in the lobby of the auditorium! If anyone out there has a copy of a cd of that show I would really like to have a copy. Email me at

I was at the show too.

I Loved this adventure. I will try to get you the CD's but sssshhhh about the quality, Don't know how I am getting this stuff, but it blows those archives away. It is like you are standing there. Modern technology you just got to love it.
It is all a blurr but there are some shows you just can't forget. Hitch Hiking up the Alcan Highway with Leslie Bear. What an adventure. The Dead Heads I met there were just amazing sweet folks. We quickly formed a tight tribe in Anchorage and many of us stayed or returned to make Alaska a perminate home. One thing is for sure Alaskans love to have fun. If I can get this on Cd for you I will email you and get your address for mailing. Scottie bird will have to help me.
