Did you go? Like it? Hate it?

Curious I reckon. Always enjoy the movie this time of year. Not a hippie by any means, but thought it was kinda cool how it came together. Wasn’t even born yet.

Fan of some of the music for sure.

Too young to go.

Besides, I heard there was that evil weed there.

And people inhaled it even.

I was too young to go and I'm glad.

One less thing to regret.

One didn’t have to go to Woodstock to find “the weed” in 1969.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

Why would you regret being at Woodstock? Most of those free wheeling young folks turned into the money grubbing capitalists of the 1980's and 90's.


Maybe we're all happy.

A lot of what was called “ditchweed” was grown up around the Falls of the Rough in Kentucky. And of course, lots of other places too.

Well, at a minimum, maybe not money grubbing but awakened to the fact that one day there might be this "retirement" thing and it might be nice to have a job, buy a house, eat something other than beans and rice, and maybe afford a doctor instead of the free clinic.

Plenty of good young Christians supposedly raised right that turned out that way as well.


Maybe we're all happy.

I was 15 and wanted to go bad but could not slip away. It was only about 125 mile away from where I lived. My buddy's parents had a summer home close by. I regret not going.

I was 17 the Summer of 69......

If you ever saw the movie, or listened to the album, one guy is on stage and talking about how many people are there and how it was a lot more than expected...

then he says " New York Thruway is closed Man!"

that is where me and my buddies were, in a VW Bug... we never got there because of that...

We were from metro DC, in Northern VA

40 kids can’t assemble without incident, much less 400,000 in this day. Maybe that’s where the legalization idea came from.

Could have gone but my summer job took precedence. Two of my friends went. Glad I didn't go. They told me the conditions were awful with rain, mud, and humidity not to mention they and most of the other people didn't come prepared with food or shelter. August in NY isn't the best weather for camping let alone sitting in a pasture. They told me the huge traffic jam to leave that took many hours. I watched the movie production which was good enough for me.
