This advice for me cuts straight to the heart of my relationship with Phish and Ohio. I went to Dayton in 1997 on a lark, and Cincy in 2003 on a whim - so there you have it. And both occasions involved inclement weather whilst en route.

The vibe at this show was toasty and comfortable. The weather kept the laht scene to a minimum and it seemed that the community just took the pre-show scene and congregated indoors. It really felt special.

Everything from the 'Sloth' opener, the stand alone 'Weekapaug', the epic 'WotC' ... really, it is one of the best 'WotC' played to date, and the Tube > Gin pushed this one into the upper echelon of my Phish experiences.

In general the winter 2003 tour has a lot of high points and this show is certainly among those lofty pinnacles.
