Nice. Reminds me of People's Express.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

MusicMagic, I saw that..Nice. Same show but we traveled to but from different directions. We actually came across huge roadblocks on 40, right on the highway and they told us we had to go to Santa Fe and wait until it opened again. It was hairy, there were vw buses and cars all over the side of the road.

We called and called but 40 was closed well into the next day so we missed the 1st show, ate some tickets. After being practically buried in snow it sure was sweet to be in Tempe, 70 degrees, shirts off dancing to that Here Comes Sunshine. We even saw a Giant "Texas Dragonfly" that day according to Jerry.

recollections? that Amtrack trip was full of those, saw elk, a bald eagle and big horn sheep but the craziest thing was the endless flumes they built to float logs that were on these sheer cliffs. You had to wonder how the heck they got up there let alone the materials to make these flumes.

The bigger Festival Express experience was another Amtrack ride to Seattle for the Might as Well breakout mini-tour. I met a taper named Ethan and a few other heads and we played tunes on guitar and listened to Ethan's gems all the way up. He was psyched for the tape he made of the Bobby Sands tribute jam show from that Spring and I remember listening to that jam out of He's Gone watching some unreal scenery way out in the wilderness. Train rides are cool that way, no roads...the Might as Well breakout was just exactly perfect after all that.

You used to be able to smoke on planes!
just had to wait til after takeoff.

Farthest I drove was to Maine from Pitsburgh. Alpine and Chicago too.
Flew to Call and Fla. Drove most points in between from 81-95.
Most shows I ever did on a tour was maybe 9.

I prolly drove more in a tour than I do in year now.

Yup. Peoples Express was like that. 29.95, to NYC. You paid on board. And yeah, you could smoke in the back.

Ha, I forgot we used to pay on board for those Peoples flights...made it pretty interesting with the heads..the smoking thing was pushed one flight to the point the pilot got po'd and made an announcement over the system to cool it or else..I think he was getting baked on the fumes it was smoky in there

Here's the Bobby Sands tribute jam out of He's Gone, the Might as Well breakout show and the Compton Terrace breakout show
..haven't listened to them for years, this should be interesting..
