15 foot dent? Did Sasquatch kick your truck?! Thanks everyone for the heads up! Ticketmaster said they would resend my tickets the second they got returned to their office. And if they don't show up in time will-call is no problemo. I will just get paperwork to camp on Thursday if I have to, but I doubt it.
And the honey people were really super nice! I think it was their set up that made me think otherwise. Nice, but odd.

Stage left, or Crowd left? The area I was in had a little fence right on the edge of the ravine/gorge. They had a bunch of pictures of acts that played there before that all took their picture in that spot. For whatever reason I particularly remember Michael Stipe from REM up there... but maybe that's because his bald ass is so recognizable. Did you have an Ice cream truck? This was where the service road goes down to where the equipment trucks are for the main stage, and how all the gear gets transported around. You can walk back and forth on the road from main, to yeti, to bigfoot to their side stages once you get past another round of security.(The shit's secure, I had to go through like 5 Yellow shirts to get to Bigfoot. If this at all sounds like what you can do, go with VIP I would totally pay for that shit. Okay once, do it at least once.

I didn't know that? I just remember jumping out of the line for wristbands so I could jump in the Honey sample line. Then of course back in wristband line land. Two glorious but different worlds living amongst each other. Those characters also were the sketchiest fuckers I saw the whole time....

That's a great idea, thanks! I have an e-mail correspondence that's kind of just given me the runaround with Ticketbaster. Having some kind of identification/verification that yes, it's totally cool for me to camp here I'm not trying to sell corn chips out of a camouflage canopy/van and hand out weed infused Honey samples. I do indeed plan to enter the gates and shell out more money to you for good chunes and even better times.

HG did you win VIP tickets last year? I can't for god sakes imagine you purchasing that shit. I had friends in 2012 with Artist wrist bands and I hung out with them in the back. Is this the same place? there was a ton of free shit in this big open white tent. Cash bar, coffee stand, food, a fucking ice cream truck. The artists and the alike roamed around back here under the heated lamps and schmooed on nice seats.
If that is VIP, then it's quite fantastic. I'm not sure it's $800 dollar fantastic, but nice pampering if you want it.

Ticketmaster fucked me again. When anyone else calls their contact number to they always seem to be too fucking busy to take your call? Thus, asking you to "call back later" when the fucking earth explodes and MAYBE I CAN TALK TO A FUCKING HUMAN BEING? We spend a lot of money on their fucking products they sell to never have their shit together enough to bother about repeat customers. My ticket was sent to my Apartment while I was out of town. it sat for 5 days in the office, and then they TOOK IT BACK. WTF UPS WHY SHIP MY SHIT TO MY HOUSE, THEN SHIP THE SHIT BACK? And don't try to fucking tell me I should have been home expecting this package. An email gets sent to me weeks before the package actually shows up> too bad, I'm not going to sit around on my fucking ass for 3 weeks gnawing at the proverbial wooden stick of douchebaggery that is the mail system.
I bet this shit means I have to dick around with Will Call. Wtf is this, does that mean I can't party my ass of to the Thursday afternoon shenanigans that is the opening of the grounds and setting up camp?
Where the fuck is my Amazonian robot? It can fly that shit right to my GPS location via my fucking phone. Like a good little well paid robot.

I'd be interested if you told me what kind of car you're renting. When are you returning? If you want to, my e-mail is Surgery4pets.email@example.com if you want to connect further for Squatch in only a few more weeks!!

Robyncat my dude no worries with solo squatch. I went in 2012 with some people I met and picked up at the airport. Then found some friends that I barely even saw at the festival that went separately from me. It was really random and all the more better when we would happen to stumble upon each other in the great void that is the Sasquatch universe.
Moral of the story is, you'll still have a badass time. Listen to Goldbeard about being hydrated. If you don't have people next to you to cover your ass; well surprise you have to really check your shit so you don't end up having bad times. I'm more than likely going solo this year, so I hope to sneak my way into the secret stardom that is the real world boarder community. (shhhh....during violent femmes ball blow out....shh) I hope to give my services as driver to some other lovely people for the festival, but I'm also getting ready to buy a car literally in time so I can get to Sasquatch. Fully fucking dedicated.
Also, 100TH POST ARROOOO SQUATCH IS COMING IT'S TIME TO FORGET ABOUT JULYSQUATCH AND GET EXCITEEEEEEEED!!!!
p.s. who's going to change the background of the board this year?
