11:13pm   Jeff

11:14pm   Brando

the Festival was at the top of the mountain, we had to ride the old uncomfortable chairlift to the top, then back down at night, it was like a ten minute ride up & down, at night it was kinda scary, we should have just camped up top all weekend

11:14pm   Jeff

I gotta get that "U" cd!!!

11:15pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

11:36pm   Jeff

Thnx, Gawd I luv this song! If you only listen to one pedal steel song in your life, this be it!!!

11:39pm   Dave
