Anyone who used the lockers last year: worth it or no? Fifty bucks is a lot to me, but having blanket at night without carrying it around all day would be the tits.
Best money I ever spent. Having everything I needed handy without having to carry a pack was great, but the "cellphone charging area" was a fucking oasis. I never used the chargers all weekend, but having a couch to sit and chill on for a minute while grabbing a snack from the locker was just what I needed to keep my old body going all weekend.
Wait wait wait...couches?? I usually have my phone off all weekend because roaming so the cellphone charging didn't mean much to me, but actual couches?
To chime in on the Justin Long thing...I chased him down for a picture, and proceeded to get three photos with him where he looks very unhappy, and I look fucking thrilled despite the puke in my hair, half-smudged makeup (from sleeping on some grass) and stranger's sweater I was wearing at the time. I then told him that he's on "My List" (which he has been since like 2008), and he invited me into VIP which I DECLINED and will regret forever.
Other highlights: Having the guys in the medical tent snap a picture of my firework-blasted face, because he wanted to get pictures of all the hilarious Sasquatch injuries Meeting 'nater and Megatron in Cranbrook - thanks for not robbing us!

I've been "working" for the past 5.5 hours, except I've been productive for about 0 whole minutes. Counting down the minutes until the road trip starts. Luckily I do get paid, though I get paid peanuts. Like, less than minimum wage. Yay internships.

People are cool. After the mad scramble to stake out as much space for your camp as possible, offer your neighbours a beer - everyone is buzzing on a Sasquatch high and thus supremely friendly. Within 5 minutes of setting up our camp last year, we made friends that we hung out with all weekend. I'm sure exclusionist d-bags exist, but throw a rock in the campground and you'll hit like 18 friendly people...even despite being beaned by a flying rock.
Edit: I do not recommend throwing rocks in the campground. Please don't. No chicken's feet either, as was the trend last year. Just don't.

I learned how to drive manual when I was 16! Manual drivers, unite!
Same! I mean, I wouldn't brag about my manual driving skills back then, and the number of times I stalled on major roadways is astounding (even for a 16 year old girl). But it comes with practice. Never going back.
The downside of having an awesome Sasquatch travel buddy who doesn't have her license and doesn't know how to drive stick. She is excellent company though. Last year my Sasquatch playlist got into a Bon Iver rut and I was looking fall asleep at the wheel-y, she immediately put on some loud metal to wake me the fuck up.
