TwiceBittenIT was my first road trip too. I made it with a friend entirely by BUS (as in Greyhound) from New York City. Oh boy, what a lot of travel, but it was well worth the trip and the long wait in line. The bus from Portland to Limestone was all heads (about 13 folks total) and ganja was smoked on board. Both of these shows really encapsulate everything that was great about Phish in 2.0 (as the kids are calling it these days). Phish jams were edgier and darker during this period than during any other in their history and much of it had to do with Trey's new guitar tone, but also with the great new material they were debuting. Honestly it makes the slightly tired Farmhouse era material and the Dad Rock of Joy seem so lame, though I know people were complaining about some of the debuts of 2003. I actually haven't listened to this show for years, but I have a strong memory of the Reba being particularly sublime.
