Hey JPB. We've talked in the past about our IN connections. Nice to meet you (again) and hope to maybe one day see you at a show and share a beverage (or two.)

I'll buy the first round! I might try Wannee this year since I have never been. That might be a great chance to hook-up! Thanks for the kind replies.

I have never called anyone a troll that didn't act like a troll.

And there are both liberal and conservative trolls here.



name calling, threats , baiting. it happens too often.
And I am not talking about deano or spiral-ahole, but folks that think they are
behaving ok because they have free speech.

With free speech comes the responsibility to be civil to each other.


You can disagree with me all you want, as long as you are civil about it.

too many here can't discuss things like intelligent adults without resorting to trollish behavior.

Wanee is a must do for any ABB (and other good music) lover.

I think I am going to go to Wanee rather than the Beacon. I am not a big city guy and the Wanee festival just feels right. Plus, I can only do one or the other, not both.

Thanks for telling us about yourself, Bob. I'm sure I'd enjoy hanging with you at a show, too.

I would like to address a couple of things you said, if you don't mind. No one here is calling anyone a troll because of what they believe. That is a fallacy that RBK would like you to believe. There are lots of people with views on the left, and on the right, who never get called trolls. The only thing that gives someone that label is the manner in which they post. In your case, I agree you don't go for the name-calling and obvious insulting that some of the others do. But you start thread after thread, basically saying the same thing, for us to WAKE UP AMERICA.

That gets very irritating, especially if you have posted in a thread in the morning, then come home in the evening and find it on page 3 because the first two pages are filled up with new threads started by jpb and RBK that day. I may be exagerating a little, but you know what I mean. In the past, it was not uncommon to see a thread never leave the first page, because that is the "Obama" thread, just as an example. If you wanted to talk about Obama, you went to the Obama thread.

Now it seems like there is a new thread every five minutes, and the only reason is that the one posting the new thread doesn't want to just post among other posts. They want to make sure everyone sees their post, so they start a new thread. Some do it just because they know it irritates some people.

So I'm asking you to try to restrain yourself a little, and only post a new thread if there is truly something new to report that doesn't fit in existing threads. We really don't need a new thread to tell us again to wake up. You could start one thread, and call it jpb's rants, or something like that, and pull it up when you feel the need. And please stop posting new threads just to show us another youtube link. In return, I'll stop calling you a troll and mentioning your name with Dean, charzie, and RBK. It really isn't that hard to get along here.

Wanee!

That's what I was thinking, plus, I do like the outdoors too. I assume it is mostly camping? I have never been, I am sure there are some hotels close too.

We can agree to disagree. There is no reason to name call or demean others because they don't have your opinion or view point.

I have SEEN some awesome music in my day, usaully at a Dead or ABB show!

Nice post, Bob, and nice to meet you! Another old hippy at heart who was at that Dead concert in Wisconsin (if you're talking Alpine Valley anyway ). Hope I have the priviledge of meeting you and many others at Wanee myself this year!

Yes, and yes. Primitive camping is included in the ticket price. Bring your tent and sleeping bag. You can rent an RV site and bring in a camper. Or you can stay in a motel in the nearby town of Live Oak. There are several folks from the NY/NJ area who are Beacon veterans, and swore by the Beacon experience. Once they got to Wanee, they "got it" right away. Two VERY different experiences, but both are great in their own ways. Wanee has a VERY laid back and hippy-ish feel to it. Waking up, emerging from your tent, greeting your neighbor, sharing a cup of coffee, sharing cooking duties....it's just a real cool atmosphere. And then around noon or 1PM, the music starts. So many choices, so many great bands to see and hear. I haven't missed a WaneeFest yet.

lolasdeb,

That was my first shows at Alpine Valley and it was amazing. That is a terrific venue and we enjoyed the whole show. Especially the Dead Museum that they had set up. I Hope to meet you at Wanee and I am putting away my pennies now so I have a few by showtime. After all, the first beer is on me!


Big Dave,

That is all you had to say. I am there for sure next year. It sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the heads up on the fest and I will hunt you down to "buy" you a beer, that's for sure.

Hey now, JPB, thanks for the post. I can see we share many common interests, the Dead(I got into them in a big way in '88), ABB, natch, and the outdoors (backpacking and whitewater canoeing). I don't want to jump on you when you just put yourself out there, but I agree with SCB on the multiple thread thing. It's a pet peeve of mine, and may reflect my own issues as well! It is not just you, when some noteworthy person dies, we usually get 3 or more threads on it because the subsequent posters don't bother to look if someone has already posted it.

And I wish I'd listened to you before the market collapsed! Regards.

Brock,

Thanks for the post. Maybe we can hook up at Wanee, it looks like I am there for sure. I get what you are saying and I will take it to heart. Like I have said before, you can only jump up and down and yell fire so many times before people are going to start to ignore you.

I just want to see my fellow brothers be safe and not face so much hardship in these coming times. I do care, and sometimes too much. Also, it is frustrating to see it coming from a mile away while nobody else seems to be able to see it. Sometimes that frustration shows thru.

Nice post JPB. Wanee is the way to go. BigDave is right, there is nothing like the smell of campfires, bongo drums being played in the distance, meeting new and old friends, a ride down to the river and maybe a quick swim. Laying in the tent late at night listening to all the sounds that Wanee produces. The early morning smell of coffee and bacon cooking. Then you hear a loud roar of hoops and hollars of some folks kicking things into gear for the next day. Then the magic at the Mushroom stage produces at night, the glowing torches, sweet sounds of music, folks dancing away. It just does not get any better. And hell that is just the first day. One of my favorite parts of Wanee is the Campfire Jams. You talk about some talented folks. Its a great time. Great Music til the wee hours of the morning. Its something everyone should experience. We are really looking forward to this years Wanee.

The Beacon is probly a great place to see the ABB. It looks like a very intimate setting and a great place to see the band. It's crazy that I have been an ABB fan for so long and have never been to Wanee or the Beacon. I had tickets to the Beacon last year, and well, you know. We had tickets to the final night and were looking for a real good time in the city.

I say I am only going to Wanee, but you know how that goes, I could just as easily find myself in NYC as well.

Looking forward to that beer, Bob! Second one is on me! And I agree - Alpine Valley is a great place for a show. We always camp in nearby Muwonago when attending shows at Alpine Valley - found a nice campground there that is 'concert friendly'.

Very cool that you made a bunch of friends for Wanee, Bob.

But you started this thread by quoting me, and addressing me, so I thought you might reply to my response, too.

But that's cool. See you at Wanee.

SCB,

I thougt I did reply. Sorry if it didn't go thru. I understand what you are saying but the door swings both ways. Here I was trying to put myself out there, because of what you wrote, and then you slammed me for the number of post I write?

For some reason you didn't get the point of my post. I can't worry about the past and will look to the future. I won't hold your old post agianst you if you can do the same for me. I have said I will try not to duplicate post and keep any topics fresh and limit them to ones that really matter. I can't help the youtube thing so you are all going to have just deal with that. I will try not to post just youtube clips and give more insight to the post.

If everyone asked themselves "would I say this to Gregg Allman" before posting, we might all be alot better off.

I, myself, am going to be just a little more kind when it comes to my fellow brothers.
