Hello! :D What a great thread!

My first JB show was during Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI back in 1992. I've been lucky enough to attend 18 more shows since then - 14 of which have been at Alpine Valley.

I love the Packers, Brewers and Badgers! I've been a Wisconsin Football season ticket holder since the early 90's.

The most exotic place I've ever been is Honolulu. I hope to go back some day. Waikiki Shell would be my dream venue to attend a Buffett show. I think I'd also enjoy seeing Jimmy play Red Rocks.

That's it! Next...

Hello, I'm Cubbie. (Bill) I was obducted by aliens and have not been here for years. I still get to talk to my BN phriends on FB, but not nearly enough of you guys. OMG, there are a lot of new faces here. So glad to see some of us oldies are still around. Yes, it is all Cuervo's fault. Shannon is anything but uninteresting, Wino IS the person your parents warned you about AND he carries a gun. And Penny is just the best! Me?

I knew Margaritaville and Come Monday from the radio, but they really didn't stick back then. Then one day in 1974? we snuck into a bar by Loyola University in Chicago. We were getting hammered like High School kids on fake ID's will do. All of a sudden my buddy runs over to the bar screaming, "Billy, Billy they've got it....a song about f*cking!!!!!!!!" We played WDWGDAS so many times, the bartender finally came over and said, "Junior, if you play that one more time, I'm throwing your fake ID asses out of here"

That was the start, fell hook line and sinker when Son of a Son... came out. Now 30 shows later, BN addiction, recovery and poverty. Have not been to a show since 2008 or so, but that's my story...

Hellllo....I'm Lisa....I was introduced to JB by an old friend at least 13 yrs ago...Probably the best gift anyone could of ever given me...Not just for the music, but because it let me to this amazing place....I've met so many wonderful people here some in person, and some just virtually...but always close in heart. I used to spend a lot of time here, a few may say to much time, but even though I don't come around a lot anymore, doesn't mean I don't think of everyone...
If you've just joined here, you've found a great place....
Kick back and enjoy....it's a wonderful place w/great people

Hi, I'm Carol. Currently living in the mountains of NC with my husband Jeff, 9 dogs and 11 horses! I write commercials and my husband voices commercials for clients all over the world. And while my first meeting with JB many years back didn't go so well, I became a fan and remain a JB fan! (you really should have moved the palm tree, JB)... I thoroughly enjoy lurking on here and you guys usually make my day!

Ok, so maybe you might have heard of it [smilie=hello.gif]

Hi im Sarah and im from upstate New york , near Fort Drum
and I am currently unemployed an studying crimimal justice with hopes of becoming a Cop,I also want to get my pilots license.
and live some where with wide open spaces.
I really want to see Jimmy in concert ,except there are a few little things holding me back like school,parents, money,and friends ,with cars,to go with. :cry: I want to go so bad I would ride my motorcycle to see him, after coming up with a great excuse, any ideas?[smilie=q-mark.gif] , of where im going for that long.
my parents have almost no idea that im a Jimmy Buffett fan (not really a parrothead,yet) His music really isnt their style, they are the type that like that older type christian music .
I guess we are the people our parents warned us about [smilie=cheeky-grin.gif]

I can say that the best thing I got out of working at mcdonalds,besides the paycheck, was being introduced to Jimmy's music last summer,by one of my coworkers who had some of his songs on his playlist. thanks Brian!!
And it took off from there, staying up half the night watching Jimmy Buffett videos on youtube and playing the margaritaville game , and now I am missing the gulf of mexico and perdido bay, I went to a small college in pensacola, and the only things that were good about it, friends, pensacola beach margaritaville hotel on pensacola beach , the Blue angels, learning how to kayak and learning how to sail a catamaran,and those 2 were :lol: I l,loved my time out on the water, somewhere in my family history i think there were some sailors.
and to quote one of my fave songs" thats the place where i grew up"

and thats about it.. for now thanks :)
I wanna be there
Wanna go back down and lie beside the sea there
With a tin cup for a chalice, fill it up with good red wine
And Im a chewin on a honeysuckle vine

My name is Jill, and I'm an.....oops! Wrong meeting! I'm a practicing attorney, living with my husband in Memphis, TN. We're both originally from San Francisco Bay Area from birth until 32 years old. GO NINERS!!

Anyway, I have been familiar with Jimmy's music over the years but didn't get a real appreciation for it until around 2010 (when I saw his Gulf Shores concert on television). Now I drive my husband crazy with Radio Margaritaville. I listen to all live concerts on the station. I've only been to one Buffett concert (my first one last year in Pittsburg - June 28). I plan on doing more travelling this year (want to try and go to at least 2 shows).

I'm really interested in making a pilgrimage to Frisco, TX this year since I hear the tailgating is excellent. A group of us just got back from sailing in the British Virgin Islands and I can't wait to go back there!! It is the prettiest place on earth (that I've been to so far)! My dream would be to see Jimmy and the CRB perform on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (like he did on Anguilla).

Hi. I'm sure no one here knows me :D

I'm Len and I'm a relative newbie to the Buffett scene (2006), although I've lived the lifestyle pretty much all my adult life. It took a friend begging me for 4 years to go on his annual Great Woods Buffett Bus, and I haven't missed a trip since. Been to 10 shows - Great Woods (7), Tampa (2), Key West (1), and to MOTM twice. I, along with my compadre Mitch are the resident setlisters here on BuffettNews.

The non-Buffett stuff: I'm a pirate looking at 50 soon. An IT Engineer. Single. Never lived more than a short drive from the water, growing up on the coast of CT. Trying to figure a way to move to Florida.

P.S. I like Jumbie.

Hi Jill. Welcome to BN. You should try to make it up to Great Woods at some point. We have a huge Buffett News showing there and tailgating is the best.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes!! I would love to take a week off in the summer and follow Jimmy around for four shows!! I've heard great things about Great Woods and Alpine too! Definitely going to Frisco this year! Already reserved a hotel room. It's gonna be a girls road trip (leaving the husbands at home)! Uh oh!! And, I'm bringing two virgins with me. ;)
