I'm curious wlewis, how do you finance all your touring? I've read in previous posts you sometimes work as a substitute teacher, and I can't imagine you make a lot doing that. Are you a drug dealer or something? You can answer that in code so as not to incriminate yourself. If you sell drugs just say "I'm the candyman" and I'll understand.

Aww man Jake was so bad ass, a seasoned vet fer sur. i had a blast meeting up with you guys at Monterey and its true that hittin a tour that hard is not as easy as it sounds, both physically and mentally. We almost had to call it quits when we crashed our car comin back from Vegas but we just had to go Furthur regardless the cost. I hope 420 makes his way back to the forum and and the shows. Burt we will be seeing you at NYE yes?
p.s. The Golden Arrow was such an amazing looking ride, inside and out including that sweet volcano and the grate heads that inhabited it!

i work my freaking ass off day and night at straight jobs when they aren't touring...i substitute teach--depending on the district that's 13-20 dollars an hr, do that each day but after that everyday, go find some other job...no matter what it is..call centers, fast food joints (you name it, i've fucking worked there), human resource managing, painting, carpeting, drunk driving prevention program (driving hammered people home), courier driving, i could keep going on and on and on

thing is, i have always told my employers how it's gonna be...at any minute i could get up and leave...my work ethic speaks for itself i work hard and i enjoy working believe it or not..give me a task and i'll ask you for another for when i finish

selling drugs is for kids who have nothing to lose...when you make it your career, you've only got so long before you're next..trust me, everybody goes down at some point if you stick around long enough
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

Hehehe... 1995 I guess. Bad timing. I saw about 25 shows 1989-1995, see I was raised in Mountain View and saw almost all the Shoreline and Oakland shows in that time frame, plus one Frost and one Cal Expo, and a JGB at The Warfield.

That was was beginning midway through high school, so I was a youngster too.. which is why I give props to dh420 for goin for it.

The bay area shows were enough for me at the time, though I had two high school friends who ended up touring... I was almost ready to go for it myself and then 1995 happened. I remember the bad vibe at the last Shoreline show where there were sirens and paramedics and apparently someone got stabbed or something out on a corner of Shoreline Blvd.

Never followed the Other Ones or other incarnations after that... until Furthur.

So 420 if u read this... consider your timing excellent and much respect for making it happen on Phil and Bob's round 2
