Oh definitely. I could tolerate quite a bit more at 21 than at 27.
And, as I said, there have been positive changes since then as well. Camping isn't a complete crapshoot anymore, the extra day is great, allowing ins and outs is a big bonus, the sound has gotten better every year, the Mojave and Gobi are no longer enclosed heat-sinks, there is more and better food, Newcastle, parking is nowhere near as difficult to get out of at the end of the night.
Are these positive changes worth suffering through the Do Lab people? Arguable.
