pooping a thread that hasn't been active in 1yr rather than starting a new one.
My group is planning to stay at Wildhorse this year. Aside from me, this is everyone's first Sasquatch, and the consensus is that $40/person is worth it just for the shuttle. Also, nobody in the group is pregnant (that I know of).
I do have a few questions though: 1) is there a general store at Wildhorse? Or would the smart move be to head in to town if supplies are needed? 2) How rough is the walk to/from General camping if we wanted to experience the madness for one night 3) Is the nightlife basically just a smaller, more organized version of District 9?
**EDIT** I realize that pooping a thread asking about 19-21yr olds camping at Wildhorse makes me look like a creep.
Wildhorse does have good food, cheap ice, and free coffee in the morning. One of the perks of Wildhorse is not having to pack as much stuff, if you're tight on space. You can wake up and grab some hot coffee and breakfast for less than $10. Their website has quite a bit of info.
The "nightlife" is almost non-existent at Wildhorse, which is why I stay there. It's a relaxed and fun environment during the day, but quiet at night. No 3am raves or Congo lines parading through your shit.
The couple times I've been there, there was quite a bit of partying, but not quite extreme as the party trains/parades or whatever they call them. I haven't been there for Sasquatch, but was there for Soundgarden and Rush, which you think would have less of a party crowd. Also both times they asked if we wanted to be in the front close to everything, or in the back where the party is.

I've been seeing a selection from Tamarack brewery on the shelves a lot lately. I didn't even realize it was brewed right up the road. Not too bad, but I'm not sure my taste for Amber Ale is what it used to be.
I've never really been into New Order and I've made a conscious decision not to start listening to them now, just to avoid any worry about that exact conflict.
I've found my self doing this for a few artists on the lineup. Before I go start listening to a new artist I first check the predicted schedule. Finding a new artist I like that will conflict is just going to complicate things. I guess there is also the fear I discover this artists down the road and realize I missed a chance to see them, which has happened in the past.

Good track. Looking foreword to his set. That set going into Audion is going to be nuts. It's going to be a tough decision when it comes down to staying in the dance tent for the night or going to main stage for New Order.
I saw Meshuggah play Ozzfest 02 on the 2nd stage at the Gorge. It sounded pretty much as good as I could expect it too. Maybe that's just because the sound was dialed in for metal music. I have yet to see any of the metal or edm festivals at the Gorge have any sound issues.

Using words like 'asinine' and 'articulate' and 'circumstances' are all that it takes for a surprising number of people on the internet to feel condescended to. It's a short road from there to defensiveness and aggression, and then it's game on.
Your throwing too many big words at me, because I don't understand them, I'm going to take them as disrespect.
I think seeing HG as a nice young man would forever ruin the Gramma persona I have grown to know.
