    this isnt even a road trip, its a rail trip. take a train.

    p.s. bubblegum = good too, or bubble ___, those all tasted good.

  2. Frankie Says:

    Work? What’s that?

    Yeah I know! So much to do, so little money…

    I’m hibernating…

  3. HarryHood Says:

    Even when I was younger, I never heard the word strain. I just thought that was something that the fancy dispensaries in Amsterdam used. Up here it’s either “homegrown” or “from my dealer”. If it gets you high it’s no concern what the strain is. I love hearing the names because it facinates me, but I still always find it strange that people use it as a marketing technique. Here, no one cares what the strain is as long as you actually have some.

  4. Mitch Says:

    hence the icon joe, well you’re always welcome to take the $10 round trip mega bus to come hang with neem and i.

  5. joe Says:

    I should be ok. Maybe if I don’t score Boston tickets for Trey, I’ll take the journey south to see trey in nyc or ct.

  6. neemor Says:

    I’m gonna set a date, Mitch.
    How’s the fifth work for you?
    That’s going to be a huge weekend for me, local party for the first person I met when I moved from PA to CT. She was asked to take me by the hand and show me around school for my first day of First Grade.
    Scary time, new school, new faces. But Carrie walking me through the halls made it all seem alright.
    I haven’t seen her or spoken to her in twenty-five years but I can’t wait.
    Facebook is remarkable. All the girls from those times are going out and asked me to join. Everyone’s amped.
    Then hop on a train to the City to see my new buddy.
    Maybe Mitch will hold my hand through the City?

  7. HarryHood Says:

    Currently, I have 6 or 7 different “kinds”. I just have them in seperate bags and I know that each one has a bit different high. After this conversation, I would love to go name them all with my own fancy creations, but I feel as though it would be like re-naming a new pet that already had one and I just didn’t know what it was.

  8. neemor Says:

    Hood, I’m coming up. Don’t fall asleep until I get there…

  9. Mitch Says:

    thats the mentality of my older friend that rubbed off. i always thought it was cool but never heard the same name again. now i hear the same strains but i feel a lot of people say “diesel” here just to push stuff. now i say “does it burn? is it good?”
    when i’m in a place where i have the option to care, i totally will tho. i appreciate that like i do my drinks.

    …speaking of, back to my coors light 40. (insert confused emoticon that i dont know how to make) stupid bodega prices making me feel bad. was working knob creek and now its just shitty beer cause it was in the fridge. gross.

  10. neemor Says:

    Then the next weekend after that, TAB with sumo.
    Possibly a Boston road trip if there’s an extree Boston TAB ticket.
    Or maybe just for the good times with blackboarders.

  11. HarryHood Says:

    I’d don’t think I’d hold hands with Mitch in the city. He’s too casual about darting in and out of traffic with his catlike reflexes.

  12. Mitch Says:

    wait you are going to the party of the chick from 25 years ago?

  13. neemor Says:

    Karaoke night at the local pub.
    I need to get on the stage if I want to have any shot at the $1000 first prize being awarded in April.
    Is tonight the night? :::flexing golden pipes:::
    Just my luck, I’d get accosted by a mob of angry joggers…

  14. ChefBradford Says:

    In this small town, we don’t get much in the way of strains, and even if someone says it’s got a name, they’re usually bull-shitting. It’s pretty much either shwag or KB, occasionally somebody says something like “mid-grade”. What little homegrown I’ve come across here has been excellent though

    I’ve recently started back, a little, and I’ve been lucky enough to get the good stuff

  15. neemor Says:

    I am going to the party.

    I forgot about Frogger…hand holding is probably a real bad idea.
    Thanks Hood.

  16. HarryHood Says:


    You got it buddy. We can sit here and name them all as we smoke. The last few should get interesting….. haha.


    Hard to picture you drinking a 40 of Coors when the last time I saw you, you were swilling a DogFishhead 120min IPA

  17. Mitch Says:

    my buddies and i had a convo the other day while walking that walking alone is faster. i told them they were gonna make me late for the train and their way was longer and sucked.

    they assured me that without walking with me and the other guy (respectively) that they too would be faster with their route and that its faster w/o company.

    i’d still hold my girl’s hand in the city tho. thats different. nothing against you fellas.

  18. neemor Says:

    So, is this a problem for anyone?
    I just shaved my face and I don’t recognize myself.
    A little bit weirded out.

    “So that one was called Axilla. Our first time playing it. My new favorite song.”

    I love early Phish.

    “DogFishhead 120min IPA”


  20. Foul_Domain Says:

    Has anybody read ‘Under The Dome’ by Stephen King? Im in the middle of it and I think it might just be the greatest literary work I have ever piked up (pending completion)

    King is a genius. HIGHLY recommend this one.

  21. Mitch Says:

    thats because i was showing frankie the 60, 90, and 120. i had the 60 and 90 at my place. the 120 i saw i was stoked about and said he had to try. i forgot the alcohol percent cause i was already drunk at that point.

    it was all a day of excess from the start thanks to robears nor-cal. humbolt started the hazed decisions from the beginning. hippie speedball was nothing on that stuff.

    … anyway the 120 was great and made our first set $$. then the bill came and it was $15 for one 12 oz. bottle. SHIT, HAHA, that SUCKS! oh well. PHiSH!!!!

  22. neemor Says:

    I’ve never sen anyone walk as fast as you did that night.
    It was remarkable.
    I had flashed visions of Carl Lewis crossed with some sort of land dolphin.

    Was I terrified for your life?
    But it was fun to watch.

  23. Mitch Says:

    and i still havent refilled my cup cause im reading on here. didnt pack a fresh one cause i spaced out in this estimated from dicks #6. need to be assertive, must act while moment of clarity is here!!

    …wait, what? dude, where’s my car?

  24. neemor Says:

    Divine Creation hears me and squashes me with fear.

  25. ChefBradford Says:

    “Silent in the Morning” was one of the first Phish songs I knew and loved, up there with “Divided Sky”, etc
