I was in high school in the 70's when I stumbled across The Great White Shark Hunt at my small town library. Mind Blown. I immediately started to work my way back to both Fear & Loathings, Hell's Angels, etc. I followed his lead for better or ill. One of my greatest moments was being asked to read a chapter of Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas at his 75th birthday celebration streamed world wide from the Jerome in Aspen. Afterwards there was a private party at Owl Farm where you were arrivals were given a small chocolate bar infused with magic mushrooms...My 2 favorite Hunter quotes that i live by: When The Going Gets Weird, The Weird Turn Pro and Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride. I always do.
