cr**** : QED
Don't take it personally, guys. Tom hated everyone at weekend 1 as well.
When you came to pick up your breakfast sandwiches and were right next to me, I totally debated telling you to shut the fuck up in front of your children.
I doubt that.
I'm going to have awesome dreams tonight.
having done both weekends both times it's been an option, I can honestly say neither is better. there are fewer technical glitches and organizational difficulties on the second weekend, and both times now the first weekend has has some genuinely inclement weather. yes, the 85 temps are nice, but as a trade-off for dust storms, rain, and sub-60 nights? no thanks. on the flip side, yeah. the grass is a bit nicer on the first weekend, although it's by no means dead on w2. with the exception of the inside of the sahara tent.
tl:tr I'll be doing both again next year.
