Funny ~ I scrounged to get tickets to Watkins Glen and when I got there Friday afternoon the ticket concept was a joke. Ten of us packed in with a tent, blankets, grub and dope. We forgot toilet paper. The Porta-Sans overflowed. (So glad we weren't near those things.)

And contrary to what one commenter said ~ Watkins Glen lasted from Friday night thru to late Sunday afternoon.

The rain decided to let loose at quitting time and my borrowed sleeping bag got so heavy I just left it on the mountain and paid for it when I got back.

It was the only outdoor type concert I attended. Bigger than Woodstock.

Lot of memories and unbelievable pics.

Thanks for the reminder, CA! cheers.gif <puff-puff-pass>

Isn't it cute when old folks reminisce about the old days?

We didn't make it to Watkins Glen , My V.W. Bus Ground up the reduction gear
on the Transaxle somewhere in Indiana on the way , we made it to the shows
with with the same bands at other venues later the next two seasons .

I heard this Jam The first time when the Alman Brothers slammed it in
Texas , then the next time was when Jerry and dead jammed with them after this .

people have asked me many times " Did you go to Woodstock ? "

I answer : Nope , I was Waiting for Watkins but didn't make it "

they then ask : What's Watkins ?

Yeah Daj , it's those memories that rip at me now , fond but so sad that
they're gone

We had Magic while it lasted man .

Yeah ~ I watched another vid on the page about the Jam ~ it had a lot of home movie footage and it's zactly as I recalled.

Everyone stoned solid and jammin' to the tunes without a care in the world. We all looked like hippies, and I guess we were. By '73 it was the way the whole damned culture had gone and there was nothin' special about it.

Although some of the food I saw cookin' in those camp fires ~ they should have opened a restaurant and called it Salmonella's. chuckle.gif

The cars had me cryin' ~ a few real muscle cars, Harley's and even a Gremlin that made me laff.

I dunno if the Magic was the times or just the youth...perhaps we'll never know.
