memo: summer 1991 flashback

(in reply to a deadhead’s note): 1991 was a heckuva summer for me – turning 21, retiring the fake ID, at shoreline. Squaw Valley, Ell river, Cal Expo, hostage incident in Taos New Mexico, been crashed by Bachelor party gone horribly wrong in Salt Lake City, all the reggae in Albuquerque, tripping in Arches, Telluride music festival learning to become invisible with Allman brothers & Blues Traveler, house parties in Boulder with emerging cheeseball rockers, meeting Allen Ginsberg, busking with the ghost of DH Lawrence , a rotating cast of hippie girls in the 74 turtle top bus, Arcata co-op, Seattle “grunge” at the offramp and living punk in U district, the hippie boys going to the dark side in the Haight, so many shakedowns by forest rangers, cops or just being parked where we really shouldn’t have. c/ Sooby Ahmed

{question accepted within reason}

PS soon after was east coast (such different) back to west, fixing mtn bike job, hitchhiking and grapes in Europe, somehow Miami post-hurricane, drive-away car to Dallas (danger!), SLC, Seattle, Vancovuer, (DLR at Marble Arch) and magically Tottori in the snow… some mushroom months, and then…

Whatcha think?
