Post Love to all....
I first came to Wanee in '11, I think it was. I knew no one and nothing of the park. I only knew that I loved the Allman Brothers and had since the late 60's. I was not up to the Jam Band scene...and knew or ever heard of most of the bands. I had been a music lover all the way back to listening to the radio....first with the Grand Ole Opry with my parents....and on through transistor radios blasting tunes in my ears at night.
The Beatles left a big impression on me when they first came to America....and I was really hooked on R&R, Blues and virtually all kinds of music since. From the British Invasion....I was totally hooked.
I first saw ABB when they were playing free concerts trying to get attention and have seen them numerous times over the years....through many of their makeover band members.
I had been to festivals before...but mostly a go and watch/go to hotel or someone's house affair.
Wanee, that first year really opened my eyes.....I met like minded folks....and camped with total strangers that have become long time friends. My first trip...I met Tony and asked if I could camp with him....he took me in...showed me around and really took me under his wings. We cooked together, listened to music together and have become long time friends. We still camp together at many of the different festies at SOSMP.
I came on the forum and asked many of the same inane questions that all newbies have posted from time to time.
My first trip to the M&G....I knew no one....I carried some food, left it and did not interact with anyone. I was too shy and reticent. Maybe the next year, I also carried food......and sat way outside the circle...and Waneelover came out and talked to me for a good long time. Slowly, I came out of my shell a little. I still carry food to the M&G but don't stay long enough to meet anyone. It is all my fault, I know.
Over the years I have seen a lot and done a lot at Wanee....and I could never ask for better friends than many of those that I have met there.
I made a comment on the forum one time...and most everyone attacked my position.......................all except AndieBee....and she stood up for me....I have loved her every since. More today than yesterday....
I can't name all the friends I have met and loved....
I could write a chapter....but won't bore any of you anymore. I just want it known I love all of you and consider you my true Brothers and Sisters.
Love
Rivernole

Congrats Mr DemiGod! What a nice10,000th post. Love back to you. One of the most beautiful things about Wanee is to see you wandering around early morning on one of your strolls, walking Styx in hand. It reminds me that it is a wonderful place after all - the music is just gravy on op of everything else. I am so happy that you are a part of it. Smiles til next month.

Your kind and genuine helpfulness on this forum is a fine example for all of us to follow in our everyday lives and I am fortunate to be able to call my friend.
