My history of rotten fest luck
Usually I stuck to one day concerts and such; but everytime Ive gone to a fest Ive had bad luck. Had great luck at rainbow gatherings, single concerts, campouts, all that, just horrilble at fests.
3 day phish fest - locked keys in dodge neon car while tripping, left light on, car died, close friend would not jump it while he was still in the lot; and none of the swag hippies at my camp site would jump me even though I had cables, also I locked myself out AFTER I put my tent and everything else away
cant remember the name fest - locked keys in the taurus; had to have parents meet me with spare
Darkstar - red ford taurs I parked outside of a string shop thinking "these dudes are musicians, they will be cool"; it got towed, tow truck drivers said they towed no such car and when I finally got there they were the only two people working and sure enough there it was.
Hookahville - stolen was my glasses, backpack, money, herbs, clothes, cds
bonnaroo - remembered where my tent/truck was by position of 2 balloons and the cars, cars filled in, balloons blew away in storm, couldnt find tent/truck/friend the whole time I was there, staid till tuesday the next week looking, if anyone was there this year I was the infamous guy who couldnt find my campsite.
Allgood - truck broke down 50 feet from the entrance (anyone who was there; it was that green gmc), friend's girlfriend got pissed and ran in with all the tickets so that we couldnt get in.
Widespread - Lost my glases AGAIN; woke up with cuts all over my entire body, a bunk mushroom chocolate and my wallet sitting next to me empty; pipes were also missing. Had no recollection (due to acid, mali, shrooms, mescaline and moonshine all in the same night.
Grassroots festival - Truck died again, had drug screening the next day; luckily AAA hoosier motor club came through with a super jump and I got out; and the AAA driver even decided to chill at the fest after I left.
Im done with fests...the only one Ive ever had good luck with was the big summer classic and that was because it was a one day only.
SO no more multiple day fests for me...ever...unless Im not driving and can hitch a ride out.
