I live in London.
Lack of transportation
1. save money 2. not the same as Grateful Dead
Had to work!
Work took me out of town during all the Virginia shows. I attended in Atlanta.
I hate posers
Timing of area stops, money
I was in california
Work restricted my travel
On vacation when they where scheduled
I live in Texas - Texas is a deadhead's hell
School this summer mostly, and it would be hard for me without the Dead.
I was on vacation when it came to Greatwoods, Mansfield Ma....:'(
Had tickets, very bad day when everything went wrong!!
Can't do it yet, Jerry's death still hurts too much
Just couldn't do it - still in denial of no Dead - didn't want to try to duplicate
A brand new baby (6.11.96) made travel impossible
I was working in Peru
No time or money, mostly...
The Music at Further did not interest me. Hot Tuna excluded
It was pouring and I couldn't get out of work
Wanted to go to one, but didn't feel that would be much different from one venue to another
Didn't feel up to it at the time
Cost and no time off
Too far, middle of the week
Lack of funds at the time
The ones near me were not on the weekend and too early in the day to drive three hours for
Couldn't get time off work
Saw ratdog 11-30-95, saw bruce 3x summer96, thought it was fun but furthur was too long
The bands didn't interest me
Not interested in seeing "club" bands playing in amphitheatres
Too much energy for too little payoff.
thought it was a big exploitation and a big spit in the face of the memory of jerry
Jerry's Dead --- it's over
No good reason...
Too busy with new baby
Not interested in the format
I took a month off from work this summer to travel around Europe - didn't have time for Furthur.
Not that much into it, I rather see fewer bands more time
Went to the international juggling festival instead
Not interested in many of the acts
Was unavailable to get off from work
There was something too sad about going to Alpine and not seeing Jerry
