OOOOOOH yeah, I thumbed many many miles and ALWAYS got picked up, and when I had the car????? I NEVER passed a hitchhiker.

This got me thinking about all the rides we got to and from New York. Met some weird assed people on that trip,including the cops. Who told us he couldn't let us hitchhike on the freeway but drove us about 20 miles to a place where we could easily pick up another ride headed home. I remember him looking back at us( we must have been a sight) shaking his head and saying " was it worth it?" OH YEA!

Yep. A friend and I hitchhiked from Ann Arbor, MI to the Grand Canyon, (hiked down to Indian Springs and back up, to Las Vegas, to LA, up the coast to Vancouver, CA and took the train back to Michigan. 1974.

Amazing country out there.

I grew up in a suburb of Hartford, Ct.
Many times we hitch hiked up 91 north with a full compliment of ski's and gear to Vermont to go skiing.
Usually just two at a time, what a different world it was back then. Never had an issue and always made it!

Yes sir, and a piece of cake to change if you ever got tired of beating on it


It was one of the best times of my life, we got there so early Friday that we could just about do anything, we walked the track, that was cool as hell, with the banked turns and shit
Thought they had SU's.

I've got the DVD. The entire concert is great. The Weight was filmed without the audience so they could get all those angles.

One of hell of a DVD. I bet I have given a dozen away as presents.

They did the Emma Lou Harris song without an audience too. Levon Helm actually played in the "Coals Miners Daughter" with her.


Found another one that is very cool! "The Weight", a tribute to Levon Helm.


And a funny early interview with Letterman.

The musical talent in one place was incredible.

This album goes on whenever a pet passes. We give them a wake w/ bourbon and crank that song and this one.

Default Clapton Inducts The Band Into HOF

Interesting that Clapton actually wanted to join The Band but didn't have the courage to ask.

Anybody like the movie "The Shooter"? Guess who the old gunsmith is that they went to see. Surprised the hell out of me.

Levon 's voice came back pretty good and some of his best work was in Electric Dirt. I loaned my CD to my 80 year old dad and never got it back.
