"If the words, 'Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness' don't mean the freedom to explore the bounds of your own consciousness then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp paper it was written on."
-- Terrence McKenna
Phil ran the Poetic Hoo Haw, signing them up and bringing them on. Capn Skyp was the ringleader, whipping the acts into shape. Friends, relatives, skypilots and students cavorted, whistled, stomped, cooked, drank and ate. Noon to dark, commencing with Rachel doing the Star Spangled Banner acapella while the skypilots marched to the flagpole and raised old glory.
Roy Sebern, you remember him from painting the sign, FURTHER, on the bus in 1964. He named the bus. First time in five years he's been here for the fourth and he came early to help get things ready.
Here's Tracy McCall, skypilot from Portland, Oregon. Also the winner of the skypilotclub writing contest, showing off his prizes: shirt, booklet and card.
Tim Gallagher gets the award for being the skypilot who came the fartherest, all the way from Florida. He is also a third place finisher in the writing contest. The dog Jackson is calm now but wait until the music starts.
