    Hippies

    Hippies never die, they are just reborn into every generation.

    But the hippie van, the VW combi, will go out of production at the end of the year.

    Yep Brazil has been making them for years. The downfall was due to the old design didn't meet government safety standards.

    Who remembers the "Hippies" as a kid? We were taught that they were criminals & drug addicts.

    Ha,ha it was a wild time. Growing up as a kid in the. Sixties and then as a teenager through the seventies I remember it all. Sex drugs and rock & roll. Hippie flower child protests everywhere. Pot smoking everywhere and nude beaches. Bell bottoms, hip huggers, flower stickers, black lights, lava lamps, Big Wheels, Krazy Wheels, Lawn Darts, frizbee, Klacker balls, Hot Wheels, Muscle Cars, Posters, head shops I could go on and on. I wouldn't change experiencing that time period for anything.

    Indeed, I began realizing that when I started attending Grateful Dead shows.

    I am still a hippie... When I left school I moved to Stonehenge... I lasted about 3 days and then realised that dandelion coffee would never cut it. Moved right back to London... Me and a bunch of other like-minded n'er-do-wells took over an entire street of squats in one of the richest parts of Chelsea, right around the corner from Maggie Thatcher's pad, and we caused a good stir!
    As for sex and drugs and rock 'n roll, that came along soon enough too...

    Ah the memories!!! (Not too many sadly...)

    The 60's and 70's were the best time. I really miss
    those days. Now you can't do a damn thing without
    someone getting butt hurt and bent out of shape.

    My time in 'that time', I think is colored by youthfulness and the inherent freedom it affords. Most of which was illusion and brought with it much that was bad and little that was good.
    The best is the music--a time that I doubt will be repeated for creativity and passion.
    I'm afraid of heights so a 26'r fits me to a T.

    Somehow the older van looked cooler... but the newer van probably has air conditioning and air bags

    I remember plenty of people getting butt hurt and bent out of shape in those times John, we just didn't care so much then... we were right goddammit!

    I do remember the free sex... a bunch of pals and I were pretty messed up one time and one of the guys suggested an orgy... yay! Trouble was, I looked at his gal, then at mine and decided that was not something I needed to happen... he was also looking at me weird, and that was something I didn't need to happen either...
