Oh you're going to the Vibes this year?  Isn't that cute.  This will be #12 for me - what would you like to know?

 

Guilty and unrepentant.

No, Dee - I started in '01, but skipped '03 & '04 - so this will be the 10th consecutive.

That's too personal to discuss over the internet.

This is my 5th consecutive Vibes BUT I went to Nateva in 2010....best fest ever IMHO. 5 minutes to get to the concert field gate from my general admission campground and the line-up was phenomenal.....Further July 4, 2010 where Bob Weir pointed at the sunset and marveled how beautiful it was......I'll never forget...

I didn't count but I only went for a day in 2006 and for the last day and a half of DeadHead Heaven. I missed all of 2002 and 2004.

I am hoping that I remain consecutive...
That is the plan!

My only regret is that I didn't listen to a friend who told me I was stupid if I missed vibes 02
Turns out she was right :bang:

But I went in 03 and y'all can't get rid of me yet :D

I've missed one since '99. And that was because of a horribly shattered shoulder and I tried to go anyway but couldn't find the support I would have needed to do it one-armed. 

 

Is that pretentious? I dunno. 

 

I remember when The Slip was good!  :lol:

Same here - although 2008, when I met the crew I have camped with ever since, certainly rivals it.

Most of us post knowledge from the bubble of boardie or VIP it's an entire different ball game out West.

I did West in '99 and certainly wasn't connected to this crew or VIP until years later.  It's all about who you surround yourself with more than where you are physically I think.  Except when they had it at that muddy stinky farm with the lightening storms, that sucked no matter how you look at it!

Had a great time at Red Hook, then again I was surrounded with happy people.

I will say that being presented with adversity like that really showed me who my friends are in a crisis/hardship situation. I'll take Chip and Beth and a few others in a post-apocalypse world anyday!

Our first was 1999 and we considered not coming back after the mess that was Red Hook (we weren't part of this gang either back then...still going it on our own).  So glad we chose to give Vibes one more shot the year after.  Never would have met any of you freaks! 

 

Even though we're only going to make it for a day this year, I'm still counting it, so this will be 16 in a row for us.  :grin:

I was Gen Pop until 2008 - including Wild West at Seaside in 2007.  I was very lucky to have awesome neighbors almost every year, but once I started going VIP, I couldn't go back.  Some years since 2008, I went solo, so I wanted to know the camping clientele I would be surrounded by would have a better chance of being professionals.

 

Oh, and as bad as Red Hook was in '01, was as good as ILCC was in '02!  Wait... does that make sense?

Taswookistan shit show was '09.  '10 was the first year with increased Bridgeport PD.  And it was PERFECT weather.
