Goddamn it the vancouver shuttle sold out today, does anyone know where I can still pick up shuttle tickets... the website says "Please contact the box office or promoter for other available ticket outlets. Tickets may be available elsewhere."
There are a ridiculous number of people that come here from Australia. They all work at the local ski hills. All of them. That's not a stereotype, it's fact.
I worked at Whistler for the Olympics and then got the hell out of there. I've lived in Van since then, and I don't have any Australian friends here anymore. I might even be considered assimilated if I could only cast away the accent!

My buddy and I are looking for a ride down from Van on Friday morning. We're both cool amazing people, in our mid twenties, a lot of fun to be around. I'm actually originally from Australia, but have lived here a few years now. I went to Sasquatch last year. We're good for fuel money and amazing company on the way. Also need a ride back, preferably Tuesday morning. Get your ride on!
Thanks everyone for your replies and encouragement! I feel a lot better about going on my own now, and I hope everyone going to Sasquatch will share your enthusiasm. I spoke to my roommate today, and he told me that he is going with some friends, and he might be able to get me a ride down. So that is great news for me! I have done a lot of backpacking in the past, and never had any trouble meeting people in those situations. I'm sure Sasquatch will be a similar environment, and there will be a lot of fun to be had. If I spend some days at the festival on my own, I will make sure to enjoy the good music, which is the reason we are all going in the first place.
Last year I went to Sasquatch with my girlfriend and her friends but recently we broke up, and so I'm not invited this year Anyhow, I have bought 3 tickets in the hope that I can find people interested in going with me. But so far to no avail. I'm Australian, and do not have large network of friends here yet (I'm living in Vancouver). I'm wondering what people's experiences are going on their own. If I find a ride down with people, I guess I would camp with them, but going to see bands all day on my own doesn't really appeal to me. Has anyone done this? Is it easy to make friends at the festival with fellow campers? Is the experience generally positive or negative? Is it worth the effort?
