Going solo is great, I went "semi-solo". Last year was my first year as well and I used this forum, rideshare, and facebook, to connect with people that needed a ride. Long story short, I made a friend in my own town that needed a ride that I would have never known otherwise, picked up two lovely girls from LA at the airport and we were camping buddies the whole time. Occasionally meeting each other at the different shows, and getting to do some pretty awesome stuff. Still good friends fer sher.
You never know who you're going to meet, or really connect with. It's the power of the squatch. There's nearly 30,000 potential friends to meet. I also loved that any time at any moment I could do whatever the fuck I wanted to do, and not worry if I had to appease my friends and miss someone I really wanted to see. I even had a couple friends I've known for a long time that we stumbled into each other at general camping.... with no way to contact/connect with them, I think that is pretty fucking incredible.

I just switched over from the 2012 colors and this year it's PERFECT! Nice job. Love the sas in the background too. It's got good contrast, easy on the eyes, and likes long walks on the beach. Good to go.

I completely agree with Pea. There's nothing better than drinking that cold fresh beer when it's hot as shit, and you're not fucking walking back to camp for now. I used those big PBR's to drink half down then refill it up with my liquor I already came in with. Transformer Alcoholic in disguise.

One of the nights the red-bull truck was out; I think the first night of last year? Anyway, this "hippie chick" or "dreads-chick" (as people referred to her) was on the hood of the damn truck dancing, fell off 4-5 times, clearly not lucid. Even if you're not doing anything "illegal" per say, some of the shit you may see is illegal to your pure innocent underage vision. It may scar you and you'll wind up with early onset cataracts.
You have 3 choices if you travel your comfy ass to general. 1. Get trashed and have fun. 2. Don't get trashed and have fun. 3. Be so unbelievably blown away from the visual spectacle that is taking place that you just leave...

Runoff? I thought that shit was supplied by it's own water system.... sneaky potentially clean water source you... My hair? I may be semi-camping but the hair must be handled, or women will run, run fast.

Is it bad that I used the honey bucket hand washing stations as a place to take a hobo-bath? i.e. use the water for brushing teeth, my hair and shit. Normally in situations I like to be a wolf, not a sheep. But I saw everyone else doing the same thing so I said ehh, fuck it.
