Now Avaliable! Thrasher's Wheat 20th Anniversary T-Shirts
It has been a long, long road since 1996 and we plan to make 2016 a year of celebration. A celebration maybe not so much of our little blog website or even of Neil Young. No, a celebration of this wonderful little community we joined back in 1993 that eventually became known as "The force of Rust".
The Rust community is -- without a shred of doubt -- the tightest and coolest group of music fans running in history... online or offline.

To say that the power of Rust changed our lives would be a vast over statement. That said, to some degree, it became our mantra to stay "rustie" at all times. To be the rust is to know the rust. And rusties understand that statement. Or as we sometimes say, "It's a rustie thing and you wouldn't understand".
What many may not realize, is that Thrasher's Wheat is now the longest continuing running website dedicated to a single topic operating under the same "management" and mission on the Internet.
Which is all fine and well, but at the moment, we just want to share the joy of Neil and the Rust community.
So here's how you -- our dear TW readers and supporters -- can help us celebrate this milestone. Thanks to our dear friend Geoff, we've come up with a Thrasher's Wheat 20th Anniversary t-shirt.

And we want all of our readers to have one. We will be diligently seeking the most environmentally friendly approach for our commemorative T-shirts. Each shirt will be uniquely hand tie-dyed under the Maui sun (by tie dyers who were trained within the Grateful Dead family tree). Our intention is to connect the dots.....to encourage greater connection through sincerity, fun, and focus. The shirt won't make the difference but you can bet all those that wear it are trying.
