Who says there's nothing to do in the Midwest? The adjoining golf course is a fine distraction from all the distractions!
up at Alpine valley, the parking lot, golf course, nearby Geneva, loved going there
Saw shows there in '84 and '87 and stayed at the campground called Muckwanago or something like that. Out of control everytime.
It was strange coming back two years after my first visit to the Midwest and to Alpine. Everything looked completely different for some reason.
I camped there in '84 for those two shows, nice place and very out of control. A great time was had by all!!
My first show. Beautiful venue. Great camping.
I'll never forget parking at the golf course and walking down then up the hill to get to the venue and main parking lot. Lots of heads selling many various "things" as we walked amongst the trees! Missed the opener but got in for Jack Straw. The tape I got later was garbled - wish I could find a better one!
Always will be Missing the Dead at Alpine!
It seems half of my 131 shows were at Alpine. It was my home venue. Camping in the main lot was unreal. Especially in '87 and '88 when there were 3 or 4 shows in 5 days. You'd
park and.....well, there you were. The water trucks would come in every morning. You got tight with your neighbors. You'd vote somebody to have to go to town every other day.
Speaking of town, I think the locals started figuring it out in the mid to late 80's. The general stores and little breakfast places realized that they should stock up so that they would not run out of eggs on day two!
I wish I had never left... but, I had to get to the next show!
8th show, 2nd of my summer mini tour.. Blondejim puts it best. Alpine is like our own country' Multiple days, rural, tremendous scene, and camping.. This was very different from Indy, but this was total fun.Bird song then Let it Grow....let's fly around for a while, then do some travilin'..
