I am excited. Probably more than excited--I'm actually thrilled. We are now in the countdown to the final days (hours? . . . no, still days) to the Bonnaroo Music Festival.
It is an inaugural visit for Megan and me. We have loved our Austin City Limits festivals, but those are drastically different. After all, each night after ACL featured a bed and a shower and a large meal.
Bonnaroo involves camping, in tents, in the heat. The showers are hoses, and the food comes from vendors. The shows do not end promptly at 10:30 PM but instead range through the night. It is a different sort of experience and one that will likely bring the crowd closer together.
So here we are, on the brink. We currently have the tent airing out in the media room, clothing piled on the guest bed, snack stuff and various tarps on the dining room table, and a few final supplies on order overnight from REI. We are darn near ready. Updates and photos to come . . . . first comes the music.
