Subject: RE: Getaway 2003 Memories
The zombie driver made it back to upstate NY and fell asleep for several hours -

but how to even begin to express the getaway in mere words? Or even with pictures?

Bitterly as I was disappointed last year when my car broke (though the Hintons saved my sanity and my weekend! Thanks again!) I didn't *really* think that my first getaway experience could be improved upon. Boy was I wrong! WRONG< WRONG WRONG

to repeat others - the Shellbacks - collectivly and individually - were incredible. Great to put faces to people.

I never thought I would be able to say this - but I spent all weekend trembling on the verge of musical oveerload. NOWHERE that I went was without music. The acoustics of the camp are such that you can often hear multiple sessions occuring from different directions but seperate enough that you can distinguish one from another. I fell asleep to music; woke to music; arrived to music, left with music.

and the people - not just the Shellbacks, the 'catters - but the FSGW as a whole and as individuals. INCREDIBLE! Mick, Dani, Janie, Jeri, Kendall, Alaska Mike and Tawmie, Bill and Rita, Tinker! (Tinker - we have to figure out a better time for those deep philosophical conversations than 3 am.)- there are too many people to list.

and Lily Ani. Max and Emily - don't have to tell you what a treasure you have. THANK YOU for sharing her!

[and Mick? to quote you..."Kiss my ARSE!" - [the begger managed to get aholt of Lilly Ani before I did...])
