Thanx for the support group Aslan! I get teary eyed every time everyone who knows me asks if I'm going on JC this year & last for that matter. Fortunately I haven't had to spend a dime on any of the excellent 120 shows & 2 local festivals (Guitarfish & Hangtown) I've been to this year, but unfortunately being unemployed for 3 years in a month (my luck Reno has the most unemployment) & living off my 401k for 1.5 years & using it to pay my credit card bills has made it impossible for me to go another $1200 or so more in credit card debt to make JC. I know, I know - I need a waaaaambulance immediately!!!
Looked thru many of my pix of JC8 (http://www.musicphotographics.com/jam_c ... photos.htm
) a couple of weeks ago & realized - again - how much I'll miss going, but I know I can't be everywhere & do everything & this is just the best of many other superb festies (JazzFest, Wanee, Bear Creek, Telluride, String Summit, NedFest, High Sierra) I wanted to but wasn't able to make. Needless to say all the JCers going will have a blast & I'll be happier just for that!!! Hope everyone else who can't afford to go has a blast doing whatever they'll be doing while the party rages on the ship!
