Gathering would be the easy part. I wish I could find a picture of all the shoes left on the hillside at the end of each night. I've had the pleasure of watching a few of these shoeless people making the trek back to the campground.
i'd just say - don't buy a brand new pair of any type of shoes just to break in at sasquatch.
I wore an old pair of running shoes to Sasquatch '08. After the festival I was tired of having my nasal passages remind me of how hot it was at the Gorge, so those shoes were banished outside for the majority of the next couple months.
Fearing a return of the stank, I benched the running shoes and I wore (comfortable) sandals everyday at Sasquatch '09. Yes, I got stepped on. Yes, I almost turned into a germaphobe whilst walking through soggy ground near the honey buckets. All in all, it wasn’t that bad (except that at the end of the weekend my feet looked like those of an undocumented individual standing outside the Home Depot).
I returned to the running shoes for Sasquatch ‘010. Tuesday morning hit and I put the shoes back on only to notice that my sock was sticking to something inside the shoe. Sometime during the Ween set someone behind me must have spit out their neon green gum that somehow managed to find the gap between my sock and my shoe. Throw in a couple hours of jumping around and that shit wasn’t coming out. These are now my official Sasquatch shoes.
While writing this I may have stumbled onto a successful business model:
huge baseball fan. i plan on catching the Mariners/Orioles game on the Tuesday night after Sasquatch (5/31) before we fly back to the east coast the next day.
i've been wanting to see that stadium for ages.
I know you'll probably be in pretty bad shape Tuesday night, but you should try to show up for BP so you have some time to walk around the stadium. SAFECO is a pretty awesome place.
A few key notes: You should probably check out the Intentional Wok just because is has the most awesome name ever.
Feel free to make fun of the Mariners, their fans don't care about baseball anyway.
I don't know how tight security is, but see if you can make it to the small second deck. They have padded seats and waiters that bring you food. Just hold your menu in the air and they come down and take your order.
Not sure that you're an O's fan (so this probably doesn't apply to you). DO NOT expect to stand up and clap for the opposing team with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the bottom of the ninth. Some security guard will inevitably have had one too many mochas and pull the Sasquatch Security power trip.
This might be a good time to mention that about a month ago, I was going to start a thread about how boarders would abuse their powers if they were a mod, and I went on to basically roast the entire board. Then I sobered up, and thought it was in bad taste.
Since I thought about it again just now, my abusing mod powers in regards to you was to replace selected posts of yours with a picture of your avatar with the mouth moving, and the words, "blah blah blah, arrrrg, blah blah blah," coming out.
Fuck me, I didn't get tickets. I don't have enough funds currently and haven't received confirmation from my friend (and my ride) that he'll even be available to go. DAMN DAMN DAMN. Hope to hell I can find some 29-30 passes without spending too much.
