  1. So glad you made it, Mark! Yeah, we were super bummed about not going. Baj went to get his oil changed the morning before we left (we had everything packed and ready), and found out he had major issues with his truck. My car was already out of commission, so that wasn't an option. It was really devastating for us since we look forward to this festival from the minute the previous one ends.. But that means next year we will go all out! Glad to see a good time was had! We sure missed y'all!

  3. Yay, Joni! And I'm positive you're meat-filled fantasy of the return of the hot dog suit will come true.. We're so excited, and Little Sunshine is looking forward to her first Gratefulfest as well! We plan on arriving Wednesday to enjoy some pre-festival days as usual. Anyone else in? Kanada Kev? The Blurrys? I know Tigger and Becky will be there, but it'd be great to see some more Canadians!
  4. Fingers crossed for ya, Mark! Hope to see you there!! Anyone else in??? :relax: Can't wait to chill on the beach! 2 more weeks!

  6. A month to go! Anyone else planning on making it now that we are a month away? And I guess 7 Walkers are out, there were schedule conflicts, but the good news is that DSO will likely be doing a Terrapin Nation soundcheck night on Thursday!
  7. Wow, if all these kids go, maybe we can pitch in and get a babysitter! Kanada Kev, whats your "manny" doing this year? Would love to see y'all there!!
  8. By the way, JGB and Rusted Root were added!
  9. Hell yeah, tigger!! Can't wait to see you and Becky there! It's been too long! P.s. Love you, miss you already, have fun raiding castles!!
  10. Not on nlqp.com, but on Dark Star's main page, they have Papa Mali and (drumroll....) CORNMEAL added! I'm so pumped for Cornmeal to be back! :dance: Also, nlqp changed it from 3 nights of DSO to 4 nights, then back to 3 for some reason, so maybe another sound-check night is in the works??? That would be pretty heady.. Will there be any Canadian Gfest survivors after Phish's big announcement? I know we really want to make Super Ball IX, but the Ledges is just a way better environment for a 10 month old, plus it's the LEDGES!
  11. A few more Gfest regulars added: Keller Williams Donna Jean Band Katz-n-jammers The Spikedrivers Klyph Black & Rumor Has It Of course fireworks, sky divers, clowns, fire performers and FUN! Mark, I hope to see you there this year, we are do for a dance-off! :dance:
  12. Also added, 7 Walkers featuring Bill Kreutzmann! This sure is shaping up to be an exciting one!! Yay Joni! I'm excited to see ya! I know where you'll be camped :crazy: And Little Sunshine is pumped for her first Gratefulfest outta the womb! (oh and she's more of a Little Baj )
  13. Yay! Railroad Earth will be there this year! So excited for that! Also announced a few Gratefulfest regulars: Boombox, New Riders, David Gans Really hope Camp Canada will be rockin' this year!
  14. Would love to see you and the fam again! I've been pretty busy with the new addition to our family, but you know Gratefulfest always brings me back to this site! :content: Hope you will be able to make it this year!
  15. It's official! From nlqp.com, dates posted for July 1-4! No bands added yet, just wanted to give the heads up on the date! Yay! Hope to see lots of Canadians again this year!
  16. Oh, and they usually don't post on nlqp.com about Gratefulfest until at least March.. They're on top of shit like that (or not)... :dazed:
  17. I hate to be the bearer of "bad" news (well wonderful in my case), but Gratefulfest will most likely be happening.. http://www.dsoforums.net/forum/index.php?s=6579c397427cfc8c903d6ef624d0711f&showtopic=14053 Read past the first page.. Sure didn't look good at first, but Paradise here I come again this year!
  18. We're leaving tomorrow for Kentucky, then heading up to the Ledges Wednesday morning!! Can't wait to see y'all!! :dance:
  19. Yay Joni!! I'm glad we'll see you there!! And your husband Rich will be getting there super late Friday (after Furthur in Columbus)! I'm hoping to sweet talk them into getting us a spot closer to the stage since I won't want to be walking too far this year with my big ole belly! :laugh: I guess we'll see, there's really not a bad spot in the place!
  20. Wow the Gratefulfest Canadian population is seriously low this year... But I can't wait to see those of you that will be there! Let the adventures begin! :) And watch out for the vortexxxxxx.....
  21. Here's some of our pictures from 2007.. What a GRATE time!
