What's the furthest you've driven to a concert or festival?
    #6240211 - 11/02/06 06:58 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I guess I could have put this one in the Polls forum but I like The Pub so I figured I'd post it here.

Anyway, later this month (the day after Thanxgiving) I'll be going to a concert in Toronto. It's about a six hour drive for me. My previous longest drive for going to a concert was about four hours.

So now I'm curious. What's the longest you've ever driven to go see a show?

One hour, pretty much because of traffic. Anything more and I better be in a hotel the night before or something cool like that.

~15hours....which isn't that long, and it was definitely worth it.

12 hours for Roo. The second year we almost died, since I was the only one who drove 2 shifts of 6 hours from midnight to noon with breakfast in between.

Damn that's rough. You should get one of those things that you wear on your ear. It wakes you up if your head starts to nod.

Back in the day we'd usually drive 3-4 hours to get to decent warehouse parties.

Nowadays, the outdoor festivals are usually 8+ hours away, some as many as 13-14. I've flown 3000+ mi for a few parties as well.

With a full time "real" job, it's going to be hard to find the time to make trips like those anymore.

I'm not trying to be a dick but this shit's starting to get annoying.

How do you know he didn't take mine?

How long has he had it for if you're so sure I took his?

edit: he didn't take mine.

And what the fork does "dark_star" have to do with pink elephants?

At least truffleupagus is like snuffleupagus which is a wooly mammoth type thing which is kinda somewhat related to pink elephants.
