Essays: What Phish Means to Me [I Suck At Blogs]
In the middle of Phish’s summer tour in 1999, I sat in a camping chair in the morning on the lot of Camp Oswego, which was a two-day Phish music festival.

I took another pill to alleviate the pain from the multiple injuries I’d sustained. I wondered what the hell I was doing there. I should have been at home in bed if not the hospital.
