    Do people ever reunite?

    It just makes me a bit sad that so many people are looking for folks that made an indelible impression on them. Do they find each other and reunite? Could they use this site to do that? I want to see a success story! Please! Here Comes Sunshine…!

    Rob Baker you out there brother

    It's been 30 years now since we last hitchhiked across across the land from sea to sea to sea over mountains across endless plains through National parks and forests through a desert or two north south east west whichever way the flip of a lucky quarter directed us to go . It's been 15 years or so since we last kicked around a hackysack somewhere near Dayton Ohio . You met and married your wife there and had started a family . We lost contact after that day . Never thought that as I drove away it would be the last time we would see or talk to each other. I tried to get in touch with you through Willie a couple years ago only to find that he had passed away ( my condolences he was a good friend and brother ) . I know this is a long shot since you have no presence anywhere on the net that I can find which is not a surprise considering where and how you were living and I assume still are . If by chance you should come across this message just know that your legend lives forever in memories with kind smiles . Peace be the journey and blessed be thy thumb . Hope you are well and that we will meet again if not in this lifetime then in the next .

    Looking for an old friend…

    Looking for an old friend from the early 80s's. His name was Skip, and attended many shows in that period, selling shirts and other things he made. He also had a store selling his dead shirts and other similar items in Queens, NY in 1983, when i knew him. Any one know who i am talking about and any idea if he is still with him and how to contact him?

    Karen and/or Billy Mariott, Ventura, the Beanie Copter Crew

    My lovely wife Sue worked for Emily K in Santa Barbara around 1980, and she had a coworker named Karen Mariott, who was from Ventura, Ca. We became friends with Karen and husband Bill, who lived in Ventura. I last saw Bill in Ojai in 1985.
    They went to shows with the Beanie Copter Crew, in CalTrans orange.
    Karen used to bake goodies for Harry Popick, who mixed stage monitors
    We lost track of them many years ago, and hope to reconnect..

    Lisa Wolf---Ft Lauderdale Fl- Crazy Fingers Dancer-- Orion

    We connected after I left FL. I posted a " missed connection" on CL and a friend told you about it. Since then, you have disappeared; someone told you to "break ties with your past" Well, I disagree! ( for what that's worth.) I told you I think of you when I see Orion in the Eastern Sky. He rises in the winter when we met at the " Warf" where Crazy Fingers would play on Thursdays. I hope you or a friend sees this and asks you to reach out. I sure miss you.
    sincerely

We got married at mile high stadium and tyler gave me away and wrecking crew gave a big party after in a sweet room. Roach motel folks were there too! Turtle is Otter/Dereks brother. Sadly...i was around when things got dark and people got strung out on bad things. i wont go into detail on a public forum lol. Lets say nothing good can come out of the Chelsea hotel in those days. Otter and I grew apart and I went to college and grew much older...never forgetting him or my the life i lived. I would so dearly love to reconnect with anyone from back in the day. Especially somoene who could tell me anything about Otter/derek or turtle (he would def know what happened to him). Ill list the folks we knew back then maybe it will ring a bell for someone.Otter, Turtle, Fast Eddie, Gracie, Hawaian Ed, ira, Fast Eddie, Crispy, mayla, Tyler, Rover from the haight id so love to hear from you, roach, TIGGER...you and i traveled together when we first started out!!!, morgan,poet, spacecat i love you, jim, michelle from san diego, spree, diamond fire......i hope this is enough.

Dennis McNally talked to the people who owned the house, in about 1980; I think it's in the Grateful Dead Reader. I think your best path is the property tax records, though, as the place may well have changed hands since then.

Hello.I am sure some of you might have heard of the unidentified decedent "Jason Doe". He supposedly attended the Grateful Dead summer 1995 concerts on june 24 and june 25 of. He died in a car crash june 26 and has never been identified. So please take a moment to look at the information by googling "Jason doe" and if you knew a Caroline O. or a Caroline T. or a Jason maybe you have some information that might help bring him home. Since I am uncertain of the site policies about links in comments I hope you will be willing to do a Google search yourself if you know someone or something relevant. I apologize if this has already been discussed on the forums but I feel like someone here might be able to help. Thank you!

Hi Sarah,I have just been contacted by one of my old friends from Dead Tour.You have been talking with him,Larry,about finding your father,Windancer.I could only find this posting from you as he did not give me your current connection?Hopefully you will get this?My husband and I are very close to your father.His real name is Jonathan Timmer,yes,AKA,Windancer,when we were on tour.Your father was a unique/essentric individual.He has had some rough times in his life....which is why we have stayed friends,and been close,to support and help him.I guess you know now he has found out you are looking for him.....and it has affected him deeply.He definitely would like to connect...You are the only blood relative he knows of,as he was adopted out as a small child,born to traveling gypsies,who could not raise him.He went through Vietnam,which affected him greatly.He joined the Dead family as a sense of community,and we were all a tight knit community....if you have not received the info for him yet please respond and we can connect you with him,My name is Lesly,hope we connect?

Probably a long shot in the dark :) I'm looking for a guy named Antonio from California who went to shows in the late 80s early 90s. We lost touch and I have always wondered what happened to you. We hung out a few times in Northern and Southern Cal, last few times in San Diego. If you ever find this drop me a line. I think you might remember me as bouncy. :D

I'm trying to get in touch with a beautiful young Deadhead girl, named Cheleese, with whom I did not have nearly enough time to talk. We met at the Dollar General Store in Pearcy, Arkansas.
If anyone knows her by golly, let her know that I could not hear her e-mail contact info that she shouted out to me, as it was too loud in the store! I NEED A MIRACLE!
Kindly, uncleJames

Yeah you.....
You stole my brand new Dead shirt I just bought and pulled through my belt loop while I was in line at the gate at Alpine Valley in '85.
I felt a tug, turned around and you were long gone.
So not cool!

i was walking to the lodge singing "It Must Have Been The Roses" April 10 or 11, 2015. When i got to
the line "all i know is i could not leave her there", you said, "that's my favorite line in that song and a good voice".
i wish i would have got your info but, i was late to start a rim to rim hike. darn it. you, pretty lady, cross my
mind of regrets from time to time. perhaps it wasn't meant to be or, perhaps you are my destiny!!

Anyone know Ripper? Or his whereabouts? I'm an old friend from the early 90's who's looking to reconnect w/ Ripper. I grew up in NY and moved to San Francisco in 1991 with another Deadhead buddy. I met Ripper one morning laying in the bed of his Toyota pickup in the campgrounds at the Eugene shows. I was stumbling around one early morning after the show and started jawing w/ him. He asked me if I wanted a Guinness? It was about 8am. That was the beginning a wild fucking day and a long friendship. We partied the rest of that weekend and probably met back up when we returned to the Bay Area. From there he said, Let's drive to the shows in Vegas. Hell yeah! It was most likely early 1994. When that West Coast run ended he said, Let's drive cross country and go to the big Woodstock 94' concert. Hell yeah! We we're on a roll and having a blast. And by this time we had a big crew of people that we're hanging w/ us and seeing shows. So we drove up through Idaho and tripped out w/ some wild people, crossed the country and saw GD shows at The Palace in Michigan. Finally got to NY. We posted up on my folks porch and partied for days. My Mom loved Ripper. We gave her a pot plant that was in car. Somehow we managed to keep it alive and watered it while driving cross country. We did all the Giants Stadium shows. Then Ripper went up to Mass to meet his buddies, I stayed in NY and we both went to Woodstock 94' with our friends. Then we met back up in the Bay area later in early Fall. And we hung out all through the mid 90's. I would run into Ripper in San Rafael. Sitting outside New George's. And I once put an add on Craigslist asking if anyone knew where Ripper was? Someone replied that he went back to Mass. and he's involved in a big Grateful Dead fan club or something. Well, I've been out in CA for 30 years and I'm moving back to NY. It's been a good run out here but I need to get back to my roots. And I need to find Ripper so I can pick up where we left off. Or maybe a mellower version of that. Maybe you know him from the Bay Area? Maybe you know him from the Mass. Deadhead scene. Tell him Frankie from NY is looking for him. He'll know. He can contact me at frankcoviello1999@yahoo.com Ciao...

This is a little different than what's usually put here, but I'm looking for bluegrass musicians or people knowledgeable about bluegrass who would be willing to do a quick interview via zoom. I'm a student working on a project talking specifically about the banjo but also about bluegrass music generally, and as part of it I'm conducting a bunch of interviews with musicians, instrument builders, professors, and music lovers. The end product is gonna be a multimedia thing that will include some video stuff, some written stuff, some photography stuff, and maybe some other stuff who knows. If you'd be interested in doing an interview, know someone who would be interested, or have anything else you wanna tell/ask me about please feel free to PM me or comment on this
