trust me, I wasn't complaining at all - tour was worth every penny I spent and I'll keep doing it again every time.

No idea how many miles I drove but coming home every night added them up quicker ..... good thing my good old 87' 4runner gets some decent gas milage (over 20 to the gallon highway miles) and she ran like a champ the whole way to ...... making me consider taking it even Furthur next tour .... and that A/C system I had put in a few years ago which ran around $1,000 for everything, was well worth every penny as well!

yea if I knew what I was actually spending I would of cut down a little - I just grabbed all the posters, a bunch of the shirts, spoiled myself with food, tons of water. I also camped at the Vibes so a good bit went to that. There may have been a phone bill and small insurance bill included in there but most was for the tour. The Bobby Solo Bearsville 9/3 tickets were included in that to. I paid for my brothers whole time out to, and the day my mom went. I just wasn't being conservative at all ..... I should be more conservative in the future though so I could do more shows

I've definitely spent close to that on some tour/festies but spoiled? Ive been on my own since fifteen working full time since fourteen and have earned every penny I've spent without relying on others for a real good time (but taking what is given with gratitude). The only thing I'm spoiled with is having Bobby and Phil an the boys comin through my town on a seasonal basis! I do love and have done the whole clothes on your back and a couple bucks thing but feel much better with a hotel to crash at and merch money to spare

yea if working hard for your money and spending it all on something you love is spoiled - then consider me spoiled for sure!

I agree 100% that the only thing I am spoiled with is being right inbetween Boston and NY and being able to hit a great deal of shows without even going on tour...
