Hornswaggle? Man, I don't think I've heard that term since Colonel Potter was in M.A.S.H. Love it.

I pondered closing this thread or editing out the paypal or something. But the dude apparently is in the scene.
Makes me wonder, however, if one has a laptop, clean enough to be somewhere with free wi-fi, what's up?!

He also posted his plea on Dead.net's forums...

I never did any touring, I don't mean to sound harsh. Like the guy above said, I would be one of the first to offer up some help. For whatever. If you need some cash for your head, or a ride to Chicago, That's if I was standing next to him over there in Phil.PA
I'm not that computer saavy, but how do I know this guy isn't sitting in his house in San Bernardino?

No. But I always give a few bucks to wharf rats,for example, as long as they're going to use the money for booze, and not food. 8)

Huh? Perhaps you didn't realize that the term "Wharf Rats" has for many years been used to refer to Deadheads that have quit drugs and alcohol...?

No I had no idea. I was using it in the sense of the lyric, from the song. I didn't mean deadheads anyways, I meant the winos I frequently encounter driving truck around Buffalo.
I just found out they call the parking lot Shakedown St. too. I'm not up on terminology.

Yup - the Wharf Rats used to have a bunch of yellow balloons to signal their meeting place at the shows. They'd provide support for other heads who were trying to stay sober. If you see a yellow Wharf Rats bumper sticker, that's a sober head. I have thrown them a couple of bucks when I've seen them because I think what they're doing is a great thing. Only the Dead could have an audience (1) that required its own support group and (2) had enough people who cared to start one!

......and hats off to those who are successfull......it's got to be so very hard.......programs like AA and NA, they are not around "it"......and they encourage you to not put yourself in a position where you are around it.........it would be so easy to get off the wagon at a Dead concert.

Nothing like being around "IT" to make you know why you need to stay away from "IT"...

You may not get on the wagon at a show... But you can stay on it!

Cant say I agree with that. Being around "it" is an unnecessary risk and not a reminder. I dont know how bad off you were but I got to assume it wasnt good for you if you haven't picked up for 2 years. Its a serious and deadly business and not to be played with. I just passed 22 years and I stay away from it whenever possible. Even if there is only a 1 in a million chance that I may pick up again. To me it is not worth the risk of losing all I have built over the last couple of decades.

QUITTERS!

I say that with deep respect AND sarcasm. Also, some call people who dance a certain way "spinners"; I call them "eye-gougers".
