    Bozeman, MT. is extremely expensive to fly into.
    That’s the closest city I have to fly into to see my dad in Condon, MT.

  3. sneven Says:

    ^ this will make a handful happy 🙂

  4. sneven Says:

    gimmie feedback! I’ve used it for years, and loved it!

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    sneven- what does this program do? Train of thought is a bit difficult to follow here. 🙂

  6. rivertrance Says:

    First puff soon. Can almost taste it. Long Fuckin day.

    Gonna be a 2 tube dog walk. The Bruce Banner is quite irie actually.

    Need fuckin tour!

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    aw- when are you planning on flying into newark? personally, i’d look into Stewart first. smaller airport though. amy not have what you need.

  8. rivertrance Says:

    Not sure P

    Was gonna check it out tonight

  9. rivertrance Says:

    Snowbank recommended scranton pa

    Are those 2 more convenient

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    scranton? not sure about that. Newark is about 2 hour drive to bethel.

    Stewart is an hour, tops i think.

    If you decide on Newark its possible i could help get you up to the show on friday, depending on times etc.. Unless you want your own wheels, which i understandable. just throwing it out there.

  11. sneven Says:

    @Mr.P et al… you can right-click on anything at archive.org, etc. Download all. You can pick out just the FLAC or SHN files. Walk away. The 400% is no bull. Stupid fast. Basically, since I have no real d/l knowledge, it continuously doubles on itself.

    Just try it, tell us all what it really does…

  12. butter Says:

    The difference in PDX and Sea to Gorge isn’t as much I have read on here

    It’s like an hour further

  13. butter Says:

    NY has a lot of airPorts

  14. sneven Says:

    @Mr. P – call me at four one niner five zero niner forty-five eighty-seven

    that is , if you are interested….

  15. Mr. Palmer Says:

    i gotcha sneven.

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    you’re right dude. didn’t realize how much different. i’ve flown into Bozeman a bunch, but always got a good deal.

    @multi – for sure man. would love the company.

  17. rivertrance Says:

    I may take you up on that p

    What city you guys leaving from

  18. snowbank Says:

    I was just playing ” let me be your travel agent instead of getting work done” but if you look at the map, you can see that the scranton route, is a kind of a back door to bethel.

    But I don’t know the area at all. I am just going off the google webs.

    Stewart would give you more chances for getting a ride with people coming from NYC…

    I even looked at the potential flights from ORD and saw direct flights to Scranton and connections in detroit to Stewart. Both were about $550 compare to less than $300 to newark…

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I live about 40 minutes north of Newark airport, on way to bethel. from my place , bethel is 1 hr 40 minutes or so. But, i’m only going friday. So i can’t help out on your way back on monday. Kaya is meeting me here also around 2 or 3 pm . Then we cruise to bethel. You could cab it to me, etc….

  20. lastwaltzer Says:


    so can your old man hook it up if i’m going to glaciar? 🙂

  21. albert walker Says:

    cool. I have a few things to look into.

    may need to get a rental. not sure how far away this BB rental is from the venue.

    not trying to be the cat driving back and forth to the show every night though either

    decisions, decisions. I need a fuckin travel agent.

    miss the days of throwin the back pack in the car, grabbing my jar, and hitting the road. so much easier.

  22. butter Says:

    Phish fans have to be the most obsessive planners

  23. tela'smuff Says:

    they hit the vocals perfectly as they drop into Viola Lee on this 4.15

  24. albert walker Says:

    I’m getting a strange feeling we are going to get a second Mike’s jam in Bethel. not sure yet which night.

    it just isn’t right for these young kids today to not understand the true beast that Mike’s once was.

    how could the song I dug as much as Tweezer make me cringe now when I hear hte opening rumbles of the Mike’s Song riff.

    this summer will bring it back to all it’s glory. my first 2011 prediction.

    out for the day kids
    feelin irie
