Tuesday night

so when i am offered free tickets to journey and death lepard on a tuesday night, i say why not...
if you know me, im a secretive journey fan. sadly rebecca and i missed journey and had to settle for def lepard.
things that we noticed and observed
1. they wern't fat
2. the basist needed to pull up his pants, it was getting unconfortable and i think he waxes.
3. the set should have been shorter, their songs require a large amt of screaming- thus the lead guy (i should know his name) lost his voice half way through.
4. the ford ampitheater still sucks. and they turned off thier field speakers - i would complain, but it was free
5. the free tickets included a ride to the event with a limo - which we had to decline due to the fact rebecca was on the howard frankland in traffic and we already had dinner plans. but the miller light beer girls promised wrist bands, free beer and food. when we got there. the miller light girls were Gone. not suprising.
6. dont sit in the field sit on the retaining wall along the main walkway - you can see the stage sorta and the screens...
7. bring your camera. by far some of the best people watching in a while...did you know it was salsa night at the ford amp? well one lady did and dressed up for it.

Road Trip Planning

I have to admit, the last road trip went on with friends was back in 2000 when we got a mini-van and went to the keys... fun times. lots of bars and drinks... good memories
this trip, I am headed to Bonnaroo.
I have been on many other adventurous trips since 2000
but they involved planes and passports.

so far the plan is...
leave for atlanta... pick up the rv... drive to tennesee... set up camp.

i have been searching online for tips and tricks for bonnaroo.
my only experience at such an event was the Reading Festival 2004 in England. but that didnt require much planning cause i wasent camping. but what i did learn from that event was to purchase a good pair of wellies. ( ie.wellingtons to americans.... rubber boots)
so the boots are packed and im watching the weather. guess what. a tropical depression over cuba! that means rain for florida that weekend... but tennesee? dont know...
so other than wellies... ive looked online for others packing recomendations and found an excell spreadsheet and i have tweeked it for our RV 'camping'. I also found mention of flags and flagpoles... which i have decided to make my own. so far so good the paint is drying.
as for the flagpole. its amazing how cheep 1/2" pvc pipe is. hope the zip ties work!
