We left NJ and got 2 GA tickets at two different rest stops on the NY Thruway. Got into town real early so we got a motel room real close. Went down to the office ice machine and there where 2 Canadian girls there being told they had no vacancies. Jokingly I said they could stay with us. One of the girls said there were 6 of them. The manager said she didn’t care just don’t wreck the place. I told my buddy we had company for the night. We ended up hanging until time to head to the show. We hung together all day/night at the show, then back to the room. The next day they all piled in their car and across the border. We straightened up the room a bit and found a note in my bag Thanking us for our American hospitality and enough money from them to cover… The 2 tickets, motel, and most of the gas to get home.

Someone stuck a round sticker on my forehead early in the day, which I forgot about. By the end of the show I had sun poisoning all over my face. The sticker protected the skin beneath it though, so for the next month had to walk around with a big white circle like a 3rd eyeball on my head. It looked pretty freaky, but to me it was a badge of honor. I had a hard time hearing at this show – couldn’t figure out what some songs were until the chorus. I have a lot of stories about that day, but I’ll just add one more: Some people were trying to chop up a big pile of coke, & worked at it for what seemed like a real long time. I thought coke was totally inappropriate at a Dead show (which seems kind of funny, in retrospect). The guy chopped & chopped & chopped, got it all looking fluffy & ready, & then a big gust of wind swept through! All gone! Funny stuff.

Odd having the Dead open up and then seeing half the crowd leave after their sets but good times were had by all. We got in some clear alcohol concealed in playtex nursery bottle liners sealed with heat which then disappeared under ice in a cooler. We had a baby with us so our cooler was allowed. Those made good trades for some other items Heads had brought in. Dylan was alright and Petty was good to see. Some jamming together made for good memories too.
