I got my license ON my 16th birthday and have been driving ever since. There's nothing better than being on the road, awesome tunes on the stereo, the wind in your hair and a destination of Furthur! Neal knew the lure of the road and I hope you will, too. Just remember that you will need to keep learning. There are good drivers and there are bad. The bad ones stopped learning once they got their license and the good ones kept on. Know as much about driving as you do about the Dead. Sorry to preach, but I drive a lot and prefer people know how to drive. Having been to all the states, I would say that Colorado has some of the most courteous drivers in the country.

I feel alive again." -Steelyard Blues
(an incredible movie soundtrack with Nick Gravenites, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield and Maria Muldaur and the movie ain't half bad!)
