Re: How far have you traveled to see the band

#15349 3 years, 6 months ago
I've flown to San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, and driven as far as Chicago, and Wash DC, and all around the North East.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

lol doubt I'll ever write it down (although it has crossed my mind lately) most of the memories are starting to fade and/or bleed together. One thing I do regret from that time is I was very camera shy and never would let anyone to take my picture. I really wish I wasn't so uptight then cuz I'd really like to see some of them pics now...

San Fran, the Gorge being the farthest (from Maine), all around the Northeast and most recently caught the last four shows of tour driving down the coast. I love getting to see the country and hearing my favorite music. It was a particular treat getting out of the cold winter weather to follow the band south. Thank you Furthur!

I have travelled east to west and back again- up and down both coasts. Sometimes drove, sometimes hitchiked. my memory is somewhat happily blurry because there was so much traveling and movement, it all just blended into one great time- One of my favorites was a crazy 3 show run- think it was 1982 (probably someone on this board can clear it up if i am wrong about the date.)Tempe, Las Vegas and Irvine- no days off. Made it to all 3, got 2 miracles. I hitched down from Ca. to Tempe- i remember not being sure we would make it to the show, our ride was supposed to stop in Flagstaff but there was a freak snowstorm so those sweet folks ended up deciding to just get us to Tempe-they broke out Help on the Way at that show- Magic!

I've flown from NY to SF, a package deal of home for the holidays and they NYE run.
Does anyone remember those People Express 99 buck ny>sf flight parties?

My craziest trip was riding Amtrack CT to Colorado for shows in Denver...then driving in the worst snow storm you could imagine (it shut down freakin Highway 40..^mentioned above^) the southern route to Tempe shows and the Here Comes Sunshine breakout. Then back on Amtrack to SF for the NYE run. Amtrack through the Rockies was a wild ride.
