So how the heck should I do Tahoe > Gorge > SF?

Plane? Train? Automobile?

With proper flights you can get this done for like 350-400 bucks.
Denver > Reno > Portland/Seattle > SF > Denver.
United/American/Spirit/Frontier all have decent priced flights to those areas. You can probably get some for even cheaper if you wait for the email promo codes deals from Spirit/Frontier.

ETA just did the search through Kayak and it was 400 bucks right now. Might even be able to get it cheaper if you wait a little.

Yeah, I guess that seems the way to go. Even renting a car+gas isn’t gonna be much cheaper...
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

so, how do you feel about the fact that the 3 atlanta shows are not listed as "sold out" on phish.com, but the only seats available are above face ticketmaster "official platinum" tickets?

i'm glad somebody responded!  it seems like no one really cares about this, and here i am having a very hard time getting over it.  back in the 90's when i was just learning the ropes, selling tickets for above face value was a serious no no in the how to be heady handbook.  i've sold tickets for some pretty hard to get shows at face+fees for 20+ years, and i've always had pretty good phish ticket karma because of it.

however, it seems like ever since gd50 and the insane amount of scalping that went on with those shows, the rules of old have gone out the window.  so it's ok to scalp phish tickets?  phish is doing it, so it must be fine.  so i'm going to mail order 50 times for new years and sell any extras at a 150% profit and no one can say anything bad, right?  if i don't, i'm a sucker, right?

I didn't know that's what it was. I was just assuming it was some box seats or some shit. But now even TM scalps tickets too?

TM has always scalped tickets through the second party services they own.  But this one is per direction of Phish management.  Lot;s of other bands do it but it makes me sick to my stomach to see Phish succumb.

Is that a fact? Here I'd been blaming TM for what seemed like a basic, greedy TM move.

Sorry, but I find it hard to believe Phish is scalping their tickets (even in a round about way).
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

that's what we want to believe, but don't kid yourself.  that would mean that phish doesn't control their own website.  Phish's management knows exactly what is going on with their tickets.  they announced summer tour early and waited until enough camden and mpp tickets sold.  they also waited until enough east coasters decided to pull the trigger on a pilgrimage to the gorge.  then they dropped curveball at precisely the right time to maximize those sales.  it's a business.  but something stinks.

now, i don't think the band is very much involved.  i'm sure they are aware of it.  probably at a meeting it was mentioned that "we're going to sell 0.5% of good seats at a premium and give the extra money to waterwheel."  harmless enough when presented to people who don't really care, but phish's team had to sign off on it.

they know we know maaannnn

I mean it is definitely a business. But I've also noticed since they've been back they have been offering more fancy packages for various things. Look at Mexico for example, there's no way some tour kids are gonna reasonably get there and pay for that experience. But maybe Phish is offering stuff like this because they can now. It's the proponent that their fans have grown up and a lot of them have stable jobs and don't tour with the band anymore. So with stuff like that it's almost like an awesome super fancy Phish vacation with all the perks. But that's just my 0.02
