For me, it's about perspective. Maybe it's having lived in the vicinity of the Jam up here in the north woods my whole life, where not a whole lot goes on. In the early 90's, if someone told me there would be a music festival up here less than an hour from my house at a riding stable in the woods that would bring bands like ZZ Top, Def Leppard and KISS and tens of thousands of people to see them, I would've suggested they have their head checked. Like Field Of Dreams, "if you build it, they will come." What it's done for the area, the local economies, the hype and excitement, watching it grow. There's a very humble perspective and appreciation. I am partial to it, like a child. There's no 'drinking the Kool Aid' or being blind to the health of the lineup each year. Most years it's our straight-A honor student and a couple times it's been the red-headed stepchild, but a lot of us will still be here in full support, backing it's successes and rallying behind it 100%, selflessly, and keying on the positives because it's meant so much over the years.
