I was 22 then, traveling to New York w/ family for a family Reunion. I owned a head shop in Bradenton, Fla. called the Fox Hole. When we got to NY I just happen to read a news paper and read about the concert. I didn't even know where Watkin's Glen was lol. But something inside me grew and I knew I had to go. My parents weren't happy at all and if I went wasn't welcome back and would have to take a bus home. I went and got in town but no tickets no food and barely any money, didn't know where the concert was so I followed the crowd. I stopped at grocery store and bought a loaf of bread and a 5pound jar of peanut butter. I started following the crowd and cars going further and further up the road. Then the cars stopped, I kept going mile after mile. I finally saw the place , surrounded by a 12" chain link fence and people everywhere. There was only one cop taking tickets for thousands and thousands of people but cars weren't allowed in any more because no room. I wasn't sure what to do there was no place to buy a ticket . I then heard a commotion down the fence away and followed some people. I then saw four of the biggest dudes I have ever seen and they bent down and grabbed the bottom of the fence and pulled. OMG I was thinking , they tore it out of the ground and held it 6 feet in the air lol. Mobody had to tell me to GO go go. lol Behind me were at least 10,000 people and all made a mad dash. After wandering around inside looking at the people , the sales booths of everything ! I saw a line of porta potties 50 deep and they were all over. I noticed these guys laughing as I watched them they when to the 1st porta potties and shove hard knocking it over, omg it was like dominoes lol one down hitting the next one it went down and so on and so on. I was thinking , glad as s... I wasn't in there. At the last one all where tipped over and some very dirty people came out some of them lol. sorry not funny ...but it was.. I figured I better find a place to sit, I wanted to be near the stage in front so as I walked it got more crowded. Here I am 5'4". 125# w/ a loaf of bread , a 5 pound jar of peanut butter and a beer in my hand. lol As I passed people were passing a joint all over, it was in the air . I was walking toward the stage putting my feet between the people w/ a lot of care. There was no room to walk at all, but I was getting closer. THEN as I stepped between these two people I dropped my peanut butter. AND unfortunity it landed on a guy where it HURTS the most, on his crotch. He started rolling around in pain, people were laughing like crazy and me trying to decide if I should pick it up. I didn't I just wanted to get out of there lol. I finally got w/in 20 feet of the stage and found a tiny spot to sit. Before I knew it thing were passing both ways and I was obligated lol. Thru the next couple of days it rained, babies were born and a guy jumped out of an air plane but forgot his chute (he was on drugs )a LOT of babies were made, it was like Heaven lol, so many heavenly bodies . Do I regret it? nahh but wish I could have also gone to family reunion too. The bus trip home was another adventure involving a gay guy, a person wanted for attempted murder of her father. But that is for another day lol
