"I can't wait to put up our tent, it's gonna feel like home!"

Yes, that was THE best 3am quote of the car ride...here'swhy... As we left on the car ride to Manchester, TN all I could think was, “only 14 hours of hell crammed into a tiny car and you’re there!”  Thankfully that 14 hours magically turned into 10 at our driver’s refusal to stop for anything other than 1 – 1 single -  pee/gas break.  As my bladder screamed at him, my thoughts were only those of gratitude.  We were that much closer, that much sooner. After the miracle car ride, we finally made our arrival at the Bonnaroo campground at 3am. Our hearts sank as we realized that on the opposite side of the road there was a line of cars on the right shoulder that went on for at LEAST 15-20 miles.  It was an endless sea of bright lights, tents littering the grass next to various cars, and people standing outside stretching their legs as they wait in anticipation to begin pitching their tent and actually getting settled in for the weekend.  People were waiting for UP TO 7 HOURS!  Either they seriously love music, or they seriously love to party.  My guess is that it was a combo.  Getting set up was the least of our worries.  It was quick, simple, but HOT.  HOT HOT HOT.  I’m talking 90 degrees at 9am hot.  Sweat dripping down your face as you empty the first item out of the back of your car.  It may sound bad…but once you’re done it’s all friendly neighbors, smiling faces, beer & of course, music!  Read the next blog to hear about the highlights from Thursday!
