You should have been hanging with the surge crew! I was told your crew was camped in C1, and I wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone, but I had no idea where C1 was located in the campground.

Seriously, you guys made already a fantastic time that much better. Can't wait to do it all again.
Really it was our pleasure and it was the perfect way to meet some seriously COOL music lovers! Don't think we want to wait 5 more years to see the SURGE crew again though:-( Missing you Tomas, Sweet Al, Eric, Mark, and all the rest of the gang and those excellent breakfasts you put together each morning! I will definitely bring more tea and mugs next time:-)))) We are planning a trip to Havasu for 4 nights of incredible fireworks and you all will have to make it out there next February 14th-19th! It is the NW Pyrotechnics Association's annual convention and boy do they put on a show with fireworks that no one has even seen before. We will rent a big house or camp on the river with a big speed boat, 4 wheelers, and you all can bring families or just the SURGE crew and go as crazy as you want to. But in 2017 we will be there in the Gorge to see the gang for the reunion!
I gave up ever trying to figure out that campground based on the numbered and lettered markers. Casey and I only knew we were near each other because of the blow-up sex doll hanging from the sprinkler haha.
Sasquatchers, I thought of all of you when I was reading this review about Lollapalooza in SPIN (source):

Worst Thing Ever: Macklemore
Irish-American rapper Macklemore is fueled by the type of naive cynicism that comes about when you decide it is noble to just give a crowd "what they want." Cheap attempts at crowd participation — asking everyone to shout "Whoomp there it is," apropos of nothing, sticking an RHCP hook into one of his songs — worked. And so did his beats, all of which build and build and stomp like post-painkillers Eminem. He also freestyled over Rick Ross' "Hustlin'," doing the sort of fast-rap the impresses the rap-phobic, and then a moment later, went into the pseudo-poetic "Wings." "This song is about America and consumerism and owning the greatest pair of shoes in the world," he told the crowd. But "Wings" is more like Kanye's "Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)" without any of the insight, as if simply being white and solemn about conspicuous consumption makes one profound. Not that much later, Macklemore performed his Flo-Rida fascimile "And We Dance," delivered via his terribly unfunny EDM persona, complete with a hair metal highlander outfits and a slight British accent.
