I wouldn't be either, I'm bringing maybe a case of stouts for 3 of us and a couple spending dollars for a couple of them Magic Hat #9'$ cause they are to fucking tasty. Probably end up trading my local brews for some other beers and drinking them when I get home.

*headphones and player for late night trips when you can't sleep. wandering around late at night checking out all the campsites and the interesting people.
*your own drugs cause im sure you could buy but you make better friends by trading.
*canteen or water bottle. youll be hard pressed for time inbetween shows.
*the strongest bug spray possible.
*possibly a waist sathcel for carrying cameras, pipes, sacks, or whatever. you don't want your pockets to lagged down so that you have to worry about losing shit.
*foodsnacks that perishable
*a shovel isn't a bad idea
*neither is a tarp or something to make a lean-to to hide from the scorching sun under.
***all you festival virgins and newbies will want the strongest amount of sunscreen and sleep aids you can get. being fucked up real bad and scorching in the sun and tripping to hard to find time to sleep will not allow to tap into the full experience.

no, im no boyscout but i like to be prepared for anything, but not to the extent it bogs me down.

one of the best ideas i have heard is the spare key one. you carry a spare somewhere on you at all times and have your partner do the same. and vice versa. getting locked out your ride is a bitch at roo i bet.

i wish everyone the most positive experience.

found this at hiprforums.com:

From Mountain Groove:

Hey there, Just thought as festival season is "heating up" I
would pass
this along. It is from a Patty who lives in Atlanta and goes to
a bunch of the biggies in the South. Wonder how that boat cruise ( SCI, I believe- hc) will
settle out with this type of stuff?

DEFINITELY not trying to freak anyone out but, trying to educate and
inform so we are all smart hippies not smelly Ween ones.

Anyone been to any northern fests this year? Planningto go?

I just went to Smilefest in North Carolina, which has
always been a very chill festival, but this year the place was crawling with state pigs and undercovers and
all kinds of quasi-legal/constitutional-sounding
searches, set-ups, entrapments, etc. Many many busts,
and what sounds like some brutality, as well. Like, someone got punched and then arrested for alerting neighbors in the campsite about undercovers.

I know the festival organizers, and they sure were not smiling, all weekend. They had no control and were threatened repeatedly with charges of obstruction of justice. I dunno how many people in total were busted,
but it sounds like 25 or more. They had a paddy wagon
there, if that tells you anything. This wasn't "let's get the dealers", or "let's just look for people being too blatant/out of control", it was "let's go bust that father over there puffing at his campsite and rip him away from his crying wife and kid." They were also
harrassing people for having beer at their campsites and using open container as an "excuse" to search campsites.

Anyway. These days I am the queen of near-paranoic
discretion, although it seems like I was just lucky for not getting busted (i.e., I just heard of one kid who was inside his tent all zipped up -- as I had been several times throughout the weekend -- who got busted
when a cop smelled something and opened the tent). I actually did not witness first-hand any busts or any people who were "obviously" undercovers. But every
time I saw someone from the festival staff, the strain
and pain of the situation was written all over their
faces. They, of course, always have had county
sherriffs onsite "to serve and protect", but in this
case, without any warning, they were inundated by all
kinds of state law enforcement who were clearly out to
kick some dirty hippy ass.

My question: is this because of the RAVE Act? Patriot
Act? Both? Are Nothern festivals experiencing similar
police presence and overzealous activity? Is festival
culture as we know it about to disintegrate because
promoters and land owners can be held responsible for
drugs at their events?

It kills me that even with significant opposition, the
RAVE Act got tacked on to the Amebr Alert bill and
passed (THAT's playing dirty..). I'm not clear as to
whether or not the following language was actually in
the RAVE Act that passed, or if it's just in the new
CLEAN-UP bill that is trying to be passed (Sponsored
by Rep. Doug Ose (R-CA), the "Clean, Learn, Educate,
Abolish, and Undermine Production (CLEAN-UP) of
Methamphetamines Act):

Section 305 of the CLEAN-UP Act stipulates that:
"Whoever, for a commercial purpose, knowingly promotes
any rave, dance, music, or other entertainment event,
that takes place under circumstances where the
promoter knows or reasonably ought to know that a
controlled substance will be used or distributed in
violation of Federal law or the law of the place where
the event is held, shall be fined under title 18,
United States Code, or imprisoned for not more than 9
years, or both."

Is that some scary, potentially all-inclusive
language, or what? If this is the case, what happens
to, say, Phish tour?"


do you guys think that Bonnaroo will be all sketched out like that? hrm...

Looks more like Waterloo than Bonnaroo, better pack the rain gear folks!, Don't let the weather damper a good time.  I can only imagine how wonderful a nice mountain jam in a thunderstorm would be, with the clouds parting about 12 minutes into it and finally the sun coming out just after the drum jam :smile: :laugh: :grin: THIS is gonna be a blast!

I GOT A RIDE!!!!! This will be my first greyhound bus trip.

YA'll wanna meet up?h

The best way to live
is to be like water
For water benefits all things
and goes against none of them
It provides for all people
and even cleanses those places
a man is loath to go
In this way it is just like Tao        ~Daodejing
