Welcome back. Doesn't the time just fly? Thanks for sharing your experiences from your journey! Did you get to hear Big Steve telling jokes at Sweetwater? I thought that would have been a highlight. There were about 4 jokes that we heard on the stream. In case you missed it, he told the punchline of why fish left the sea to come on land. They smoked all the sea weed!


We missed the start of the Moonalice show but I was able to see him come out after set break. God I love that guy!

Thanks, guys, for all the advice about persuading Mrs. E. And I do agree with you that SF is one of the most gorgeous cities in this country.

My problem is that my wife has spent way too much time out west. She lived in Silver Lake for a while and more to the point she spent at least five years in a VW bus with a boyfriend who paid their way selling crafts in parking lots at GD shows. In a word she's a purist. Once Jerry died she definitely felt less of a connection to the music. Now she's seen plenty of Ratdog/Phil/Other Ones/Dead/Furthur shows and she's enjoyed them all. But to her, the idea of traveling coast to coast to see Phil play a bar is kind of incomprehensible.

Of course she's completely tolerant of me roaming around the east coast in search of that perfect jam. It's just that she doesn't want to be bothered. These days when we travel around the country it's mostly for baseball games. You can a learn a lot about a city by spending a few days in its local ballpark and we're trying to see all of them.

And there are some very significant ballparks on the west coast. At some point we have to do Giants Stadium and we're agreed that when we do that there's no point in flying all that way and just going home after a few days. So who knows?


AT&T Park for Jerry Day!!!! Get that bobble head and while shes resting at the hotel that night go on down to the late bar jam at Terrapin to celebrate Jerry!

It was a great performance too. I think he opened his set with it. Really enjoyed getting to know Stu better.
Really nice guy too. Met him and talked for a while after the set.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Baseball and Furthur: Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!

In 2010 I attended two Furthur shows in Brooklyn, saw the Grateful Dead Archive exhibit at the New York Historical Society, and watched the Seattle Mariners (and Cliff Lee) beat the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
I took the $30 bus ride to Boston, and the commuter train to Lowell, MA for another Furthur show. After a day exploring Lowell - it seems like they knew how to make energy from the river when the factories were booming - I went to Boston and watched the Red Sox beat the Orioles at Fenway Park. Before the game, I took the tour of Fenway, and it was definitely worth learning about the history of that historic venue. My flight didn't leave until later on the next day, so I wandered around Boston, Cambridge, and Harvard while absorbing lots of history with an after-show glow.

The ballparks in Seattle and San Francisco are outstanding! Unfortunately, Seattle is far from any other city with a major league team. However, there are a few minor league stadiums between Seattle and San Francisco. When I attended Jerry Garcia Night at AT&T Park in 2011, I also went to see the Mickey Hart Band at the Independent in San Francisco, and the M.U.S.E. concert at Shoreline. I missed Jerry Day in 2011, but I hope to attend some time. This year the 11th Annual Jerry Day takes place on August 4, 2013 at Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in McLaren Park, San Francisco. Jerry Day and Jerry Garcia Bobblehead Night usually take place during the Days Between. The Giants are home August 5 for a 4-game series against the Brewers, and they open a series against Baltimore on August 9th. No special promotions have been announced yet. Have fun in your adventures!
Thank You Jerry

I'm glad you got to see Fenway. An essential destination for any baseball freak. I'm sorry you didn't get to see the original Yankee Stadium. That had the same kind of aura as Fenway, that sense that you're surrounded by ghosts and history. The new one's very nice, of course -- I saw McCartney there in 2011 -- but it's just not the same. As for wandering around Boston, it's a great pleasure, isn't it? I'm lucky that a lot of college friends have moved up there so I've had plenty of high, high times in the city and the surrounding areas.

As for west coast ballparks, the two I most want to see are Dodger Stadium -- home of Koufax and all that -- and AT&T. I'd love to catch a Jerry Day. Those bobbleheads are a riot. This will happen. The biggest problem is blocking out the time. Between checking out ballparks (there's also the Angels and the Padres) and catching up with friends and family who have relocated out there, we could easily end up spending three weeks. That's a major chunk of time and money. Like I say, though, this will happen. Somehow.

To heck with California, it looks like the Rockies have a couple of good home games right around the third weekend in September.

I'd love to do Red Rocks. Again, Mrs. E. is less enthused as she saw the GD there a few times in the 80s. It looks beautiful. A tour buddy of mine -- actually the guy who introduced me to my wife -- relocated out to Denver to be closer to his wife's aging parents. So every once in a while he sends me a photo of his family wandering around Red Rocks. It's really breathtaking.

If you go to Dodger stadium be sure to take a taser with you

The Rockies are chumps but Coors Field is a magnificent ball park.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there
