Howdy, ya'll. I had such a great time at Wakarusa that I took some of our photos and made an online diary of sorts. Check it out if you'd like.
See you next year!

Good job Bill. That was cool. I caught most of the bands you saw, but my festival was focused differently -- I was in the Revival Tent for half the festy. Interesting how diff styles could track through the line-up and find entertainment all day long. I was front-row for that Leftover Salmon frenzy you mentioned - loved that paragraph write-up. Also humorous pix of Beatle Bob, and the Chigger story.

hey that was from me... thought i was logged in. sorry
Enjoyed those pics! I am glad I wasn't the only one who suffered from those damn chiggers! However, like Robert Randolph and the Family Band said, I \"pressed on.\" Two weeks later and I still look like I have chickenpox! Damn chiggers!

First off Wakarusa was AMAZING! My Girl Amber and I were fortunate enough to be invited backstage on the sun-down for all 3 nights, affording us photo and autograph opputunities. Sorry it took so long to get these pics up. Many of these are backstage shots and others are from the front row.
The lighting situation was challenging as is usually the case @ shows. And the pics were taken on an ol'skool Nikon.
I did not bring a tripod or a zoom, as I did not realize how cool the good folk @ waka would be about takin pics. So, while I got some great shots there were many that although had potential to be great were slightly blurred or Jazzed up in some way. I did not have the heart to leave these out.
Soo rather than Post a bunch of blurred fuzzy nonsense, I took some of my Favorites and Doctored them up in a Photo rendering & publishing program and with some light adjustments and effects...Biggity-Bam!
THese are just the first wave of pics...I have a bunch more.
I am hard @ work on the PARTICLE pics which should turn out sweet.
One Love, Blessed Be. Jacob

P.S !! there is a folder next to the Wakarusa one that has a pic of the back of my girl's high school yearbook picture...here's why.
I went to se the Allman brothers sat, july 19th 2004 ( this past weekend as I write this) It was Amazing!! Layla was the encore and when the band was done Duane Allman's final recording Little Martha Filled the small minor league baseball stadium from the p.a and an amazing fireworks display filled the sky directly over head. Afterwards I went out towards the tour buses where I spotted Warren I of course stuck my fist towards the sky and spouted \"Warren! You ****in; Rock!\" He smiled ..Waved back and ducked between the buses. Oh, but who should happen to sidle over to the security rail but Greg Allman! Damn Right. Now my girl had plans for that evening that kept her from going to the show even though she really wanted to..So, I gave Greg My girl's high school pic ( which I keep in my wallet, close to my heart...well technically closer to my Butt as I keep my wallet in my rear pocket) Handing him the pic I explained that she could not be there....He plucked the pic from my hand studied it a moment and said in his distinctive drawl \" Well, that's too bad..We'd a told her to lose you an come with us\" an obvious chuckle from the small group gathered bubbled up and he signed the picture for her...When she heard the stroy and saw the pic she was needles to say excited...
So that was 2 Allmans (Derek & Greg) I met in 1 month in 2 totally diffrent places..sweet!
THanks for indulging me...one love
