So heres the deal; driving down to fest with best friend and his chick, but his GF does not like camping because its too dirty or something. I, on the other hand, love to get filthy every once and a while. That came out a bit wrong, but then again, perhaps it was just right... so before I get carried away and y'all think I'm a nut, my idea is this: I have been procrastinating on buying my ticket, which turned out to be the best plan since now some are selling for below cost. Bonus. I want to buy a wristband with the car camping (I know rules re purchasing together), but the rental car we'll be driving to weekend 2 with will be going back to the hotel each night with my friend and his chick. While I could stay there with them, not having a chick of my own I'd prefer to just keep the party going through the evening, so to speak. And meet some chill people. I also like idea of having chill spot to go during day when there are lulls in music I want to see, and maybe place to BBQ (I think grills are allowed at car camping?) And also place for coolers with booze, since they raped my wallet at the liquor tents last year. About be: a somewhat "young" 28 yr old guy originally from Santa Cruz, technically a current Berkeley undergrad but put that on hold again for a bit (poli sci might have been a shitty waste of major anyway), cool with almost any, eh, methods of recreation so long as not mega gnarly (been there years ago myself so I know how it goes, but tweakers and junkies need not apply, sorry). But psychs, booze and bud I don't mind a bit (have my card, plan to stop by club on way to make 4/20 a good one). So, uh, yeah... most stoked about seeing J5, Violent Femmes, Wu Tang, and RHCP, and also discovering "new" bands like I did last year... Madness (ska band from UK) comes to mind, shit they were unexpectedly awesome. And continuing to explore the electronic scene, which has changed a bit from the D&B and trance I listened too back in the bay area rave days around turn of century. Anyway, if you have a car, have not too many people in party, are willing to contribute a bit toward cost, and are cool/ relatively mature (at least not retarded) and aren't a dick, let me know and maybe we can organize something together. Tell me a bit about yourself/ group though so I can totally pass what amounts to unfounded judgements about the nature of your character before even meeting you. That was a joke, but not really. Just don't want weird awkwardness, people being disrespectful or unhelpful/ not contributing somehow, or generally having to worry about someone taking my shit or lurking into my tent during the night with a shank made from crushed and sharpened aluminum beer cans. You guys know how it goes, I'm sure. Plus always good to make new friends. So that about sums it up, let me know what you think and perhaps we can work something out. Thanks guys and have a good one. ps respond soon, because which ticket I buy in the next couple days is dependent on what I get set up here if anything.
