My plan is to have my phone with me and to hook up with the Wharf Rats. Other than that, drink lots of water and enjoy the music.

I have to spend more time on my recovery while at a festival than if I am not at a festival. (FWIW - I do 7 meetings a week even after 2 years cause I NEED to) You CAN'T hang with buds that are drinkin/drugin and expect to stay sober. You need to be with like minded people who respect and encourage your sobriety. I just came back from Rothbury and did 2 meetings a day, and hung with friends that know I am in recovery. Without me asking - they gave me the biggest gift of all - THEY DIDN'T DRINK OR DRUG the entire weekend to support my sobriety.
When I am at a festival, I do the 'Rats, read my BB for a bit, and hit my knees and ask my HP to give me the ability to see past the insanity and enjoy the music.
If you have a good solid foundation in sobriety - go. If not - don't push your luck. This is life and death stuff...

Hey George, it was nice to meet you!
Thanks everybody. I am taking all advice to heart. I am going to be in family camping. I have a black Ranger and will have a yellow balloon or streamers flying from an old fishing pole. Please feel welcome to stop on by and say hello!
