A traveling caravan of entrepreneurial gypsys came by at 11am and sold us some goods (edibles, drinkables, etc). I was already at least 6 beers deep as well. I think the "drinkable" stuff had some shady stuff in it. I was almost instantly blackout.
At one point I have a hazy memory of trading my sombrero to some other guy for his baseball hat and a small square piece of paper that I put on my tongue... I'm not sure if this was on the grounds or at the campsite.
Regardles I went wondering around the camp and lost my group. It couldn't have been later than 2pm at this point.
I lost the next 4 or 5 hours of my life!
I have ZERO recollection of walking into the Gorge for the first time. ZERO. The walk, the view, getting down into the main stage pit area. ZERO recollection. My first memory was near the end of the Santigold set. I was smack dab in the middle of the inner pit. I was completely messed up. Everything was moving, and I turned around and the entire hill of people behind me blew my skull. I had no idea how I got there (still don't).
My $315 ticket had magically turned into a wristband. I still shudder to think that I was completely blackout and risked driving 16 hours only to risk losing my ticket. Someone must have taken care of me at some point.
I stayed in the pit area right through Girl Talk and Pretty Lights. Probably the most fun I've ever had. I spent half of the Pretty Lights set turned around 180 degrees just staring at the hill of people behind me.
I remember walking back to the camp after Pretty Lights and just thinking to myself that I must have been transported in there because there is no way I could have possibly forgotten that walk.
10/10, would read again.
