    I and I can be used to mean we in some Caribbean variants of English- have you got the wider context?

    In Caribbean (particularly Rastafarian) English "I-and-I" can also mean "I, myself" in the fullest sense, both physically and spiritually. So perhaps the speaker is saying that although he wasn't at Woodstock, he was at that time fulfilling his desire to both have sex and get high, but in Vietnam.
