I'm guessing you're talking about...
Sec: 103
Row: G
Seat: 34

A number of years ago, we sat in seats similar to this and we didn't have a very good view of the stage from that angle. I think we may have been little further to the side, though? I remember being disappointed mostly because we paid above face value for them on ebay. :(

Like you said... if you don't like your view, you can always join the party in the lawn! 8)

In years past, Live Nation has opened up additional seats closer to the event date. The year of the Summerzcool tour, we scored FRONT ROW seats about a month before the show! That was the year JB wore my cheese head on stage!!! [smilie=happydance.gif]

Good luck!

Figure I'd touch base between trips to my particular harbor and address some questions for this year.

Yes, Hemingways is open.

Yes, we are having our annual JB weekend party.

Yes, we are doing the buses.

Yes, we have added buses to address Bruce's no longer running his.

Yes, August is hot, except every third year which happens next year, not this year:-)

Yes, the lodging situation sucks.

Yes, Alpine should once again open the gates early and rape all us on the additional fees.

Yes, we will be tailgating at Hemingways prior to the show.


That should do it:-)

Call the joint at 262-348-1200 to get on bus list or email southofdisorder07@yahoo.com

Upon return from Cabo end of June, will get the party info out.

Whomever is heading to Chicago show, ENJOY, I will be listening on Radio Margaritaville but will be there in spirit!

Wow, second page with last post on May 29 :(

Guess the waning interest is expected.

Now that I am back from the particular harbor down south, will post in a few on the Hemingways weekend bash.

I have 17 bus seats left, email me if you want one. southofdisorder07@yahoo.com

Looking forward to seeing some of us diehards this weekend in Chicago!

So I have a question to the Alpine RV people. We have access to an RV this year and we are wondering if it is all worth the trouble. We have only walked through the RV lot briefly in the past so i am not sure how it is set up. Is it more separated from the normal lots, so is there less traffic from people walking around? We have a pretty decent setup for a couple of cars, but I am not sure it will be enough for an RV setup. Thoughts from the RV veterans.

The Jollymon will be in attendance again this year. Haven't missed a year since 2001 except the year he played Wrigley instead. So I just saw him in Vegas. And this will be the third time in the last 12 months I have seen Jimmy. Alpine, Minneapolis, and Alpine. What a great time to be had by all. WOOOOT =)

parrotthd4evr... I haven't had any experience with RV's @ Alpine, so I can't offer you any advice. Hope you have fun!
