The re-entry seems pretty clutch if you are in premier and can snag the shuttle back and fourth...outside of that though, you are crazy if you make that trek more than once a day.
I'm also stoked on the 4 days again this year, last year I got there about 2am on Friday morning after driving 15 hours from California and I drove 15 hours back right after Foster the People on the little baby stage (I missed Wilco and others, kind of a bummer) and went straight to work for 10 hours. I was dead all day at work, but I loved every second of it!!! Glad to see the fourth day back...even if it kills me!
In other news, four days is awesome. Bring your food, eat a lot of good protein in the morning, bring good, portable snacks in with you and lightweight layers for the cold night times. If you get up in the morning and start drinking DO NOT GO TAKE A NAP IN YOUR HOT TENT. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen this ruin a person. And that includes me. If you need to go pass out on the hill for a while inside then do that later in the day.
The early evening power nap during that band you couldn't care less about is so clut...uh...good. And as always, I'm going to go ahead and advocate for bringing in an extra pair of socks (if you're going to wear socks, that is). A fresh pair of socks at about 7pm will change your world.
The cold weather gear at night is the only thing I could see myself using the re-entry for. It sucks lugging all that stuff around all day. If I could just fit all my snacks and water and junk in a big bag I would like that so much more than a packed backpack.
Let's all just stop posting whenever the site is down.
agreed. we seem to go through this at least three times a year. almost always it's resolved without anything new to report. perhaps we should try a new approach... only post something when the site has changed.
