Sounds pretty sick but I wasn't there. I have a buddy who saw the 83 show when they played a rare Casey Jones---I don't think that was your rain show though, maybe earlier?
I remember in 85, they let everyone camp right there and even came by with garbage trucks through the woods in the morning. Way cool at the time. It was never that way again though. Those shows/that tour were amongst the best I ever saw. Got the Dancin>Dupree's>Walkin, Cryptical, Esau, Shakedown, Scarlet>Fire, TOO----all were MONUMENTAL versions. Had fifth row seats for the first night too--16 dollars---11 for lawn!.
Saw Bob/Rob with JGB in summer of 89 (i think), that was a pretty mellow scene and very good shows and Phish in 02 (that was heavy security---helicopters, etc) and P and F (04?--again, pretty mellow)--
my cousins lived in Ellicott City so it was a great venue for me in that they went to shows too and I stayed with them. Ah, the good ol days.
