I think its prob about thaat maybe a few more. I was reading somewhere that the pack up doesn't take long at all. If you notice they start taking it down as soon as the show is over. And then the drivers drive to the next gig. Now I think the band at least bobby and Phil might fly to the next city if its a really far drive and have their bus meet them there. For the rest of the band I don't know if they get the same, I think they share a bus.

In Atlanta last year I think I counted 4 18 wheeler big rigs, in addition to the two tour buses.... pretty impressive.

A little off topic but I saw Roger Waters recent Wall tour and he has something like 20+ tractor trailers full of gear. Obviously the theatric production is different from Furthur but I just wanted to mention how ridiculous it was to see all those trucks lined up next to the Spectrum!

I remember seeing a Mattson/Barraco show in NYC last year and The Wall was at MSG, while walking back to the train station I was sitting outside with a friend and saw so many trucks coming from the garden. You can always tell them because they are usually red cabs and in immaculate shape. They also had at least 5 beautiful tour buses if not more.

If you read the book what a long strange trip it's been Dennis breaks down all the stage set up and breakdowns and all the roadie inside stuff and it's a great book.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die
