Going in for the first time in 2007 not knowing anybody but TigerRose, and only from iChat.

Hanging out under a street lamp at 4 am last year with a bunch of friends, Thuggie asking me what the bright objects in the eastern sky were, and me telling her they were Jupiter and Venus.

Wharf Rats meeting at 3 am a few hundred feet from the stage where lolConspirator was playing.

The power outage after the storm in 2008. It was very quiet and everybody backstage stopped working. Even Ken Hays showed up in the staff dining hall for lunch.

First boardie I met(outside of those from jersey shore scene). ... DF.. 2001 summit festival.. I know, not vibes .. But it was terrapin . 2002 vibes was magical ..a month after my brother passed away and for those 4 days at GOTV, I was at ease and surrounded by so much love... The candle light vigil at back of field is one of my best memories.

03 was my 1st vibes and i remember a lot of great music and magic, but...

 

04, mini vibes, standing at vassar clements feet, gazing up at him in absolute awe as he made me feel like i was floating above the earth with his ability to make my heart sing with his magic strings :heart: :dance:

 

making the velcro connection in 05...wasabi peas :funny1:, thunderbobby wanderings with my Peas, being on the rail with the coolest boardie guys EVER :heart: ((daveseantonytomsteve)) :heart:

 

"breaking out" of the VIP tent :devil:

 

hearing 10,000 people cheer in unison as the sun dipped behind the skyline at schwetty vibes :lol:

 

just a decade of blurry, fuzzy, happy memories dotted with boardizens :jump:, saturated in music, alongside my Peas :heart: and full of amazeballs dripping in awesomesauce :D

The rain and dragging my gear for Vibes 1999, Red Hook.

 

1999 was our first Vibes and it was at Seaside.  I think Red Hook was 2001 but I'm still trying to forget that one. 

 

2002(?) first year at ILCC and the year of the epic Phil sets.  Also the first time we braved the boardie picnic & started meeting folks. 

 

2003 - first time camping in VIP & starting to meet the folks who would eventually become Velcro.

 

2004 - mini Vibes.  Smallest Vibes ever but probably some of the best times I had.  :grin:

 

2005 - ending up in line right next to Tony & Dee without planning it.  Been doing it the same way ever since.  I think if we ever actually had a plan, we'd never find each other.  :lol:

98 my first Vibes - at Plattsburgh - best venue ever!!!!! Leaving there to drive down to GA to follow Further up the coast to SPAC! :dance:  Ahhhh life pre kids! :lol:

 

Vibes Red Hook - enough said! :lol:

 

The year Vibes was small & almost didn't happen (03 or 04 maybe?) Sitting on the hill hanging with Reid Genauer for an hour or so

 

05 First Vibes with baby in tow (Cate was 4 mos old) - we waited in line at ILCC forever!!!! Got in, threw our stuff down & ran to the field for ThunderBobby. Set up a shelter & Cate slept in the stroller under it w/ about 15 randoms hanging out to get dry while we danced in the rain. Walk back to the car to set up camp to find out we LOST THE CAR KEYS!!! Frank walks back to the field in the dark & rain  to look for them. I was ready to put a rock through the window & deal with it on Sunday. He comes back with keys in hand. AMAZING!!!

 

06 waking up the next morning after P funk (w/ 2 babies now) and my 17 month old says "Mommy I want the funk back" <3

 

last year. Our first Vibes in 6 years after going to 10 of them. No kids, so much fun, so many laughs.

 

Thank you Vibes for giving me many memories, great friends, and so many good times <3

So many it's hard to pick! I always have to mention the first boardie picnic and still have the signed bed sheet (<3 Bubblechick<3)

 

Candlelight vigil for Occifers' brother xoxo

 

Phil and Friends magical set in 2002 (but ended on a bad note when Howie dislocated his shoulder!)

 

The happiness of seeing old friends and new friends at Boardie camping

 

Bring Jude to his first Vibes

 

Surviving Redhook!

 

Trying to sleep while Les Claypool played :zip:  (no offense to Les, I was just exhausted! :kashmir: ).

 

Being surrounded by so much love and music during some very dark times. Thank you <3

DH Heaven...just a sea of little dome tents

 

Croton -  driving until I reached a roadblock at the bottom of the hill, and seeing my brother's site w/ a spot for me and getting let through....then Mary and a friend walking in from some parking lot the next day...standing on top of that hill saying "we'll see them from here...and magically we were right there at the foot of the hill.

(oh and waking to a baby cry at 6 AM and realizing for the first time in almost 2 years...it wasn't my kids!)

 

Plattsburgh - standing in the water to cool down and being right next to the venue field (and DBB late night was killer in the little aud) And tears from Days Between as I walked back from shakedown

 

B'port 2000 -  "freak TV" as the back screen in the bus facing a 3way intersection with streetlight looked just like a flat screen TV looking out on the strangers stopping strangers scene (sketchy moving van w/ spin kidz and their pit bulls... not so much fun)

 

Phil at Marriaville ... fireworks (official) above the trees by the bus when we returned after the set.(SpongeBob was my copilot)

2001 After rushing for 5 hours then taking the hayride cart with our stuff I can't even describe the feeling as I came over the hill and

saw all the happy people carrying their gear and hearing music and drums drift through the air.

Many more memories after that at ILCC and Seaside, it was always a misty happy feeling leaving.

On her way back to the campsite: Hello officer, what can I do for you?
Police officer: So...where's the party?
I'm not telling who: In my vagina, wanna come?
