My friend originally wanted to leave, yes leave, Seattle at 5pm. I convinced him to leave at 3pm. (I wanted more like 2pm.) Parking can be such a hassle at the gorge. The two times I've been there, we waited in our car for over two hours just to park. The drive itself takes a little over two hours plus we're going to stop for food. I can't believe he originally wanted to leave at 5pm?! So, I *think* I'll get there around 7pm.

Hell, I thought leaving at noon was pushing it!!!!

See if you can talk your friend into leaving earlier!!!!

Well, we'll see. I told him that I would buy him dinner, many beers, a t shirt and a concert program book thingy if we got there way early. Of course I said he would also be stuck talking to me(!) until the show started. Hopefully all that will entice him to leave around 1pm.

Be stuck talking to you????? I would drive you for all that you are offering. Hell, I would drive you if you were just going to put in gas!!!!

I really hope that you get there in time for the meet-up, if not you have my cell number already.
I forgot where your seats are so if you can PM me your location at least I can come down and say Hi!!!! Plus I told you that I would save you a beer!!!

Good Luck and Take Care!!!

Here's where I'm sitting:

Sec C (Alex's side) Row 15 Seat 29

I may be wandering around looking for fellow TRFers so here is a description of me: Tall girl, longish dark hair, I'll be wearing dark jeans and a short-sleeved black and white striped shirt. Depending on the weather, I might be wearing a green jacket. Keep an eye out for me! I'll answer to Jen, Jennifer, "Janie," hey you, hot stuff...  wink.gif

Well...I'm done with work for the day!

Heading over to get Peapod2112, and we are on our way to Yakima!

I probably won't be online again the rest of the weekend, so we'll show up at 4 somewhere in the parking lot and I'll hope to see someone there.

April, Janie, Bonz, Tree et al...look forward to seeing you!

I'll be wearing a Test for Echo tour shirt, and she'll have on a Starman black shirt...do you think you'll be able to find us???  biggrin.gif

Cruel fate! My phone just took a dump. My service says I have to wipe my phone and do a hard re-set, which mean I have to sync my phone or I lose all my data. Problem is, I'm not home to do it.

I've got your numbers but I won't be calling from my phone - and can't answer mine.

Damn the ghost in the machine!

EDIT: Apparently, I can text.  cheer.gif

I got your text message goose. You know, I've never text messaged before. Total virgin - had no idea what I was doing. I sat here for about 30 minutes trying to figure out how to text message and after that length of time, all I managed to do was send a smiling face that I discovered by accident. (I was attempting to write, "Hi Goose" and every time I hit the "g" button, "i" popped up and when I clicked the "g" button multiple times, "HIGH" popped up.) I am really, really not hip on this new fangled contraption. So, if you text message me again, you're going to have to wait forever for my reply which will amount to either smile.gif or HIGH!

  I just wrote out all the phone numbers that I have gotten, I just hope I have coverage there. My group is going to leave Tacoma at about noon. We are stopping in Roslyn to pick up some beer at the brewery.

I am in Row 45 seats 4 or 5. I will have my son with me in his custom made RUSH shirt. I am going to be wearing my red Armour and Sword concert shirt. You can't miss the friend that I am sitting with, he is tall with a shaved head and will probably be wearing shorts!!!! If you miss me at the meet-up feel free to come down to the seats to say Hi!!!


To all please drive safe and sane!!!!


See you at the show....Take Care!!!!!

I wish I could say, "yes" to the Portland show. Even if I sold my extra tickets I wouldn't be able to go - didn't plan on it anyway. Thanks for the offer though!  smile.gif

Tickets are in:
Sec. B (middle section), Row 26, Seats 5-6

I'll PM you my cell #. I *think* we'll be arriving at the gorge around 7pm. Cutting it short I know but my friend wants to leave Seattle rather late.

Did that fight happaen in general admission?  A small brawl happened next to us early on during the show.  First time I'd seen something like that at the Gorge.  Still, a good gig.  Wish I'd met some of ya there.  Had a blast.  All the best from Harry Satchel... tongue.gif

Ozzy, no it happened in the parking lot just as I going down to meet Lady April. No punches just a lot of words. Hell, I had my 4 year old watching FAMILY do this!!!! Sometimes family can be so stuuuupid!!!!

Well sounds like everyone had a great time. Remember to look for my review and hopefully pictures in the review that Janie started. It should be there today!!


Stay in touch through the forum, we don't need a show to get together, but it helps wink.gif !

Take Care all you Northwest RUSH Fans!!!!!!!!!!!
