No way is one moment possible to pick in a year with so many. Starting with 2010-2011 new years run, best buy shows with abbey road and radio city, bob in Marin, shoreline, bethel j beach spac Comcast gotv, Vegas , la, Monterey , MSG, Syracuse Albany, amhurst and ending with 2011-2012 nye. Wow I bet I missed a few but, 2011 I feel I rediscovered myself through an old love of music. That might be the biggest gift of the year. Of course meeting and being embraced into the forum family has been a special gift this year as well. Thank you Furthur for 2011. It sure has been special to me.

Phil And Bob together on stage! That's enough to make me happy. There was a moment during one of the listening parties on the Fall tour where I heard the ” sound.” That was an aha moment And one that keeps me coming back

Oh yeah, all the smiles on stage.

I have many...

But I would have to say, the Comes a Time in Bethel was probably my favorite for sure. Just to be there, at that place, with a warm breez hitting my face as my mind wondered in psycodelia utopia....and to hear that. It was perfect. Just so beautiful...JK sung it with so much emotion, and well.....the words, ya those incredible beautiful words. WOW!!! Just lintened to it again and it still brought back those feelings.

My favorite moments have always been the ones that involked emotion....not necessarily the ones that I danced the hardest to.

My favorite GD moments brought me to tears.....thats when you know its special. Thats why I know this stuff is special.

If you mean furthur moments to be at an actual show, three come to mind. I share my number one with you, comes a time at Bethel. 2nd Favorite was Black Throated Wind At Jones Beach. And my third favorite was the best buy show I saw in the spring, an awesome venue for grooving.

But I met so many kind people especially this summer and fall, those are always my favorite memories. For me the entire Summer scene was spectacular. Love driving all over and living in fantasy land for a week or two. Love grooving at the outdoor stadiums and I had a great time camping with deadheads before and after Bethel. Great music, great people and great memories.

Now I am "homesick". Oh well, all good things in all good time
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

My favorite Furthur moment of 2011 was when Alex posted his invitation to do the west coast tour aboard the Golden Arrow, and something inside told me I had to do this tour. Without Alex, none of this would have happened for me. Thank you my friend!

Saturday and Sunday night in Eugene. Had just started the tour and met my fellow Golden Arrow riders.
A sense of community was there with us from the beginning, and it was then that I realized we were about to embark on a truly mystical journey! And what a ride it was!

Monterrey was bittersweet, historic venue, great vibes, but the last dates on the tour, and leaving the Golden Arrow crew was an emotional crash for me. But I will treasure every moment of the journey, and if it wasn't so enlightening to me I probably wouldn't have been so bummed about it ending.

And of course the NYE run. San Francisco, NYE, good weather, and the best part was re-uniting with the friends I made on the west coast tour and my fellow Golden Arrow riders, and meeting all the new faces from the forum! Also got the chance to show my lady (Wundurland) what a wonderful community we have here and on the road. now she's hooked too!

A wish for everyone in the new year - May the best of 2011 be the worst of 2012. Let's take if Furthur!!!!
Takin' it in stride!

Sampson and Delilah at the Fox was one. It made me feel really good,.

Meeting FF67, going to Indy with her, and hanging out with her and Dead on the Rivet at the Mickey Hart show was also one my favorite times this year.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

Jeez.... like, a favorite single moment?
here's a few:

- "Fool in the Rain" April Fool's Hampton - my first Furthur show,

- the TRI broadcast gave me a huge realization of where music & touring is headed.

- couch tour last year listening to Abbey Road unfurl,

- that one part in "Days Between" at Simpsonville when I finally sat down to catch my breath....

yeah, and so on. LOVE THIS BAND!!!
