Well I mailed off my birth certificate forms. No idea how long they'll take,. I opted for the "fast" option. When I get them I can finally get a passport again.

It's just a waiting game now Smile

Ok, so I got a gig Friday night, about an extra hour away from the fest. Pat and I are gonna come straight from the gig. We could be as early as midnight, or as late as 4. Either way, we are gonna do the long haul straight form the gig to emmet michigan, and are both taking extra time off to make sure we are the last to leave!!

Well we will be there, probably around 5:00PM Friday to set up camp! I have no idea what gear we have and need...I'm planning on bringing an acoustic, a djembe and a space bass! What else do we need that I can bring? The drum set always seems to be the lynch pin, of which I do not have.

So it's weekend of May 30 this year, right?

I'm there, almost certainly...am I bringing the keys again? Any other shortages? I don't think I can bring the keyboard stand, as it's daf's old huge fucker of a stand (which I LOVE).

Anyway, looking forward to it...

Smile

yes, it's the weekend of the 30th and i'm pretty sure we still have something that can work as a stand for the keys...

yes rats there are no drums at this point. been trying to get alyssa a set, but life keeps getting in the way. finally getting a house - only took til i was 31 - but it's made every penny i have count right now. i'm not sure if seanmorse might have a set or not, or if missy is going to bring her unc's again if she makes it

2lim - no canadian colin this year?? your buddies make it once and then don't come back - are we that scary??

bought mom a charcoal grill this year, she decided she doesn't like gas anymore, so we are planning on doing burger and dogs, and on a different note we are looking at pancakes for one of the mornings. menu is looking yummy, and we are all getting excited - alyssa hasn't stopped talking about it

Too many things to respond to! I will just say that I'm really looking forward to this and seeing you guys that are sticking in there! THose that cant, oh well. You will be missed and we will talk lots of crap about you when youre not there! Seriously though, lets get it together people, time running out!

I talked to Kim today and she is looking forward to it. She seemed genuinely suprised that people still wanted to come but happy about it nonetheless!

Oh and by chance has anyone heard the new Midlake album 'the Courage of Others'? Its pretty fantastic and has some great campfire songs in there too!

Well guys, I don't think I'm going to make it this year. It sux, cause it's probably the best time I/we have all year, but it's just not in the cards. Out of respect for you all, I just wanted to let you know. We really would love to try it again next year, Kim & Co willing.

I know you'll have a kickass weekend! Can't wait to see pics!

I know this is last minute, but do we have a drum kit yet? I will bring bass and amp, and I think pat will bring guitar and amp, and I saw some of you are bringing acoustics, and the like, but the kit is always an issue.

I no longer own one, or I would try to drag it across the border with me too.

Simon
