I've been going to the Gorge since 99. The first time I went, Ozzfest was the day after Dave Mathews, so those 2 groups collided. A bunch of people were getting turned away because camping was full, so people were just camping wherever on the side of the highway all over the place.
Then I remember around 01 crazy shit was happening like some assaults, and somebody got shot at summer jam. Then the security was crazy as fuck. They were ransacking vehicles and checking people pockets and shit. They blamed alcohol, so they stopped allowing alcohol to come in, but you could buy it from them, even after the show. I can't believe nobody remembers that. After 02 I stopped doing Gorge camping. It sounds like it has changed a lot.

I went to that Ozzfest and I was one of the people who got turned away. We ended up camping "In A Van, Down By the River!" the night before the show and at Wildhorse after. I've held a deep, personal grudge against Dave Matthews ever since.
Shax was the oldest and least responsible member of team assfuck
I got all of us there at the same time. My job was done and I wash my hands of all things responsible-ish. Just wait for Sasquatch when I (hopefully) don't have to organize any group efforts. It will just be me in my onesie with a head full of bad intentions..... and maybe some ground drugs.
I'm not sure how I'm going to do it, but I'm definitely going to make sure to find you guys in the campsite so we can actually meet as well. As we get a little bit closer to the date we all definitely need to share details about how to find our camps!
rustuuuu PM me your digits, I plan on mass texting all the boardies I have numbers for where I'm camped when I'm first in the campground, because the next day my phone will die and I ain't gonna waste time in the media tents trying to charge it.
Related: You're in Portland, right? I'll be there this weekend for WhiskeyFest NW if you want to party.
I'm hoping that everyone texts me their general location once they get settled in (hint hint) as I will be riding my bike down from glorious motherland of wildhorse and will fill my bike basket with treats for all!
Keep yer peepers open for this monstrosity (with me on top of it):
