make the tour your own and you'll have a great experience, try to make your tour like you always pictured it or always had it described to you and you'll always be chasing something you won't find.
be kind to the elders (and everyone else) but also remember that most of them got into the scene b/c they were rejecting their elders. after the music this whole scene is about having fun, living an alternate lifestyle, and generally living life fully- so if you're young don't trade in the conformity of home for the conformity of the tour. hippies can be some of the most judgmental people out there, so don't fall into the trap of trying to keep up with the anti-Joneses.
plan ahead, do your own thing, and enjoy the music- that's all you'll need to do to have a great tour but it's also the best way to meet good people.
