Been a long time since I have posted on this forum. Couldn't believe I remembered my password... Last time I was at Legend Valley was when DSO played fall hookahville with 2 electrics and a late night acoustic set. Remember that?????

It's been a hell of ride since my first show on 02/02/02 at the Michigan Theater. From the Great American Music Hall to the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom and so many venues in between... We will be flying in from Middle of Montana and look forward to spending a special weekend with all you strangers. Camping in VIP and look forward to meeting new friends and make life long memories. See you there.

Brady and Kylie Jo

Brady, great to see you are coming. I remember meeting you at that Hookahville fest. I'll also be in VIP with a great group of people, hope to run into you.

Brad

Dayrtrip 16:  Hookahville with DSO was 2007 at Legend Valley.  Late night acoustic set was extra sweet.  Funny thing, one of my most memorable moments of that weekend was when I heard the news that Appalachian State beat Michigan . . . "Where were you when..."

We usually arrive around 1:00-1:30 and there is already a huge line, which is to be expected. And by the time we get through the snake of cars, camping space in the bowl is very hard to come by.

 

Do they open the doors at noon, or a sometime before (so they don't have as huge of a mess/line of traffic)? It just seems like a lot of people to be already inside by the time we get down in there.

 

When do people start arriving, like 11:00, 10:00, or even 9:00? and do they immediately go into the Snake?

We arrive like 10am but they used to open the car gates to let us just stage inside. They made like 15 lines of 10 cars and they let us in in the order we arrived but they stopped doing that. They said let’s get everyone to safety on our property which was really cool. Not sure why they don’t do that still. It was very orderly. Fans weren’t trying to sneak in or not being cool. We all just got out of our cars and mingled. It was one of my fav things. The excitement was palpable. No one was like let us in. Everyone was patient since we were already on the grounds. Hopefully they return to that method soon as the outside staging area in the next door lot left much to be desired.

We should hit the gate between 10-11 AM Friday is the plan. Been debating our setup. Wanna take enough for a comfortable camp yet limit our trips in on Friday and out on Monday. Getting excited. Can’t wait for some DSO!!!!!!

Its looking like another hot Jubilee.  Year 3 and 4 were pretty epic weather.  High  70s low 50s.  That makes for good sleeping.  Mid 60s= sweaty sleeping.  Maybe this is the year to duct tape a hose to my car air conditioner and run the hose into the tent. Where's goingbacktowhere with his portable air conditioners when you need him!!  90s at pocahontas and we take afternoon naps in a 65 degree cabin.  That was the life.

The last time I camped in GA was 2012. There was no line. I see that folks mention the line and lack of spots. What time would be the best to arrive to get a decent spot in the main GA area? I was thinking 11-11:30 am, should I come earlier?

I wouldn't get there too-too early.  A couple times I got there ~9am and they had us wait in a parking area across from the entrance.  Once the gates opened, a group of about 30 vehicles had to try and blend in with the lines and it made for some hyper moments.  We thought they would let us is first but when the freeway started backing up, we were on our own.  Folks were just understandbly anxious for the weekend to get started.....

 

YMMV.

There is tons of room to set up all afternoon.  It only starts getting crowded late in the day.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.
    • Deal 9/5/89

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
