I'm doing research for a fiction project. Can anyone tell me what type of blotter was common on the last tour? Any designs stand out? I seem to remember plain white.

I agree, kind of a neat little spot to take creative license and make up your own little blotter gag. The funniest ones I can remember (from probably 1-3 years before '95) were white, but stamped on each tab in tiny letters was the word "bunk"(they weren't). I kinda remember someone talking about a Betty Boop print... someone (maybe Kesey?) had a blotter art gallery online, don't know the link.

Sweet breath vial of liquid. You cant go wrong with that, plus you are in for the largest dosing you have ever dared to try, especially if its a spiked "pass a round" beverage, Hang ON TIGHT! :drink:

white fluff was indeed the most prevalent blotter on the summer 95 tour. No print on it whatsoever, and even better (or worse depending on you perspective) it was NOT PERFORATED, so doses had to be eyeballed. In the lots this was commonly moved in quantities called "10 strips" because it was hard to cut out individulal hits from an unperforated sheet, but much easier to cut it into 10 fairly equal strips (equaling about 10 hits each). Scissors were a real commodity on tour that summer!
