Depends on how you define "truth." If you want to fuck with me, I'm game. You're out of your league though.
Start popping the corn all.
I don't want to fuck with anyone. It's just a matter of perspective to some but from a subjective point of view I think my statement wins out. For me, deciding to monitor anything outside of a camping/non-city music festival is an exercise in futility. You either will have to put in extra effort, planning, or dedicate time commitments to work out a means to watch a game/event/match etc. You're taking away from the experience you should have when you chune in, turn on, drop out, to one fettered with commitments to outside events that just do not matter in that moment.
Go with the flow, drop what you brought at the edge of the campground and pick it up when you leave.
I found out last summer that most of what I can get into a festival can fit into one of those cheap drawstring backpacks, so I decided to pass on the lockers. The only thing I ever worry about is sunglasses. I even tried buying cheap ones, and they can broken in a day. I already got around that by buying a hard case for sunglasses. I do worry about my little camera, but I think if I keep it in the case and wrap it in a shirt or something it'll be ok too.
I get too chipped out to worry about that shit. All I need now is a slip with my info and I'll be golden. No need to constantly check pockets, carry cash, etc.

Dudes we've have friends break up, social faux pas crossed and friendships ruined, etc.
We're less than a month away from Sasquatch. Let's just get through this and enjoy the fact that in about 26 days we are going to be enjoying the gorge in the good company of many folks.
A little thick skin all around. Life is tough let's not burn our bridges to folks who are more similar to us than the 95% of the outside world that thinks we're weirdos and wasting out lives listening to good chunes and music festivals.
For the record, I got an email back from the RFID squad at Sasquatch:
"The idea is to register the wristband under the name of person wearing it. This allows us to help people at the Box Office should a problem arises with the wrist for which they are not the original purchaser. Seeing how your wife is wearing the wristband, I will assume you are both going together to the festival? should she have any problems with the wristband over the weekend you would need to accompany her to the Box Office as we will be able to help you as the registered owner."
I'm registering Burrito's ticket as Gorgon the World Eater.
When people attend Sasquatch for the first time, are those who have been there once already always so condescending to newbies? Or is this the nature of the people who are active online months before? It is actually so rude, I am shocked! I definitely will not be using this board anymore knowing that at some point the newbies will be shamed for their questions. Kind of the opposite of what a music festival is all about.
Very uncool! I am really hoping this isn't the vibe when I get there.
I was only shamed like once, it's kind of how this world works, you get razzed a few times, prove your bong chops and then are accepted. I don't know anyone on this board who is rude to people in real life without the other people doing something to instigate it.
