I remember that was all the buzz in New England that summer. Local news stations were saying stay outta upstate NY, but kids still went. My friends sister went, and never came back home. She hitched a ride with some hippys from CA and went west with them.
After my parents let my sister go the the Doors concert in New Haven a year and a half earlier, there was no way they would let her go, and I remember my dad tell me I could forget about it too.
To take our minds off the current events, he took me and a friend of mine to the local plymouth dealer so we could look at the new roadrunners and GTXs. Heck, we still had our transistor radios to listen to anyway. The salesman took us for a demo ride in a GTX too
Lost over time and overshadowed by woodstock was the second big event that was being planned at the Powder Ridge Ski Area in CT. After woodstock, CT state and local officials put the kabash on the event. ........................markerdown
