    Fall Tour - 2nd Leg

    Ditto. Don't like the town of Lowell but really like the venue. Lowell -> Ithaca --> NoHo Personally, I'd like to spend more time in Ithaca then just a quick in and out. So much to do, see and enjoy in Ithaca. Albany never to be missed.

    "....collaborated with the band to...." That's what got me.

    Matt, Your post is stinging because I sense maybe I inspired it. Whether or not, I will throttle back and temper down my uncontrollable excitement about travel, experiencing new lands, and meeting new and different people. Combining those three with our music, I see my potential for self-indulgence posts. Even though it is stinging, your post is poetic and with kind intention. Definitely. A sandwich in honor and deep gratitude for Scott. Frank

    Arrived in Denver yesterday. Saturday night in the city was fun and the people are most amazing! 2 nights in Denver, 5 nights in Fort Collins, 8 nights in Boulder - excursions hikes in the Rockies, DSO in r/r and 2 Dead & Company shows at Folsom. my knees buckle with gratitude and love for this ‘time out’ from the interplay of joys and struggles of modern life. Let me be frank- if not for DSO I would not be on this holiday. It all began with a rumor many months ago that DSO would be playing r/r. Oh, and Surya Namaskar every day - for me with NO larger social agenda - is the “silver bullet” of life that eases me in. At home, I often neglect it but wouldn’t dare neglect in beautiful Colorado. ❤️🎶

    Everyone gets a turn, I’ll start...

    I tried, but I just could not resist. Everyone's having a meltdown in this one, especially Keith Moon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgx7abJH6uI

    I was in shock when I learned how close this show was to my daughter's college graduation and our hotel. The Friday night champagne toast at the school ended at 6:30 and I was at the bar across from the venue by 6:45 with my bro. My love for electives is growing - just look at this set list. Although the crowd was really, really into it (few talkers thank goodness), I was surprised not to see any dance circles. What a night! Thanks!

    Although I've never been, I was thinking the top for the overall expansive view that I see in photos. I'm also hoping for an expansive sky filled with stars. Now I'm learning the sound is better up top. For this show I was thinking sound, view, and dance space rather than proximity to the stage. Can't wait.

    I think it's a birthright of us all ....maybe, maybe not....at least that's how I experience it. I like it.

    Although I don't participate all that much, I started a new tradition of donating to this forum each October 17th in honor of October 17th, 1983..... It was my 3rd grateful dead show (1/7/79 was my first and 10/15/83 was my 2nd). But 10/17/83 was the day that changed my life forever - I danced with God that night.....

    My voice is for a longer drums and space { wink } in electives.

    Red Rocks 2018!!

    Party in Denver? Party in Denver! I have never felt so excited about visiting a new place. I've spent good time in Northern India (multiple trips), and on one occasion the foothills of the Himalayas. Visited a good number of places in Europe on multiple trips. At 12, I sat in the back seat while me and my parents drove from San Fran to Yosemite to Tijuana to Las Vegas. Five times to Austin. But Colorado? Never been. Right now the Southwest flights are on June 29th and return July 10th (annual trip to Nova Scotia or Prince Edward Island is cancelled). I will need to extend the CO stay for the DeadCo shows. We are staying on Baseline Rd in Boulder the entire stay. Amy and I are looking at pretending to be residents of Boulder, but the truth is we will be tourists. Looking online at the Boulder food co-ops and yoga classes. There seems to be so much to do in and around Boulder - Coors and Celestial Seasons tours - ha! - I told you we were tourists. Endless hiking, hot springs, trips into the Rockies, old gold mining towns..... way too excited for my own good this far in advance { breath into a paper bag level of excitement }. Amy and I would love to attend any get togethers. Frank
