As many of you know, I document the site set up each year and post pictures of the progress as it moves along.
I noticed on the way home today that there are three tents set up that were not there yesterday. Also, there is a flurry of activity going on with trucks driving all around the property and forklifts moving nuts around.
so without further ado, the set up begins.
These tents are are for the set up crew to stay in.
A tent over near Centeroo (Not a performance tent)
A tent in the maintenance/off limits area
Thats all for now folks, as more stuff is set up, I will update this thread with new pics.
4 More Weeks!!!
So just a couple of new pics to add, I noticed today a few more tents put up and the steel structure for what I think is the discoteque arcade, also, you can see the graffiti wall going up as well.
I think this is the arcade:
A couple of new tents over by the maintenance side:
A Tent over by the fountain (And a Hay cutting tractor)
Thats all for now, but things are REALLY hopping over there so I am sure there will be more to show soon, stay tuned kiddies!!
5-21-09 Another small update today:
These pics are from the interstate overpass, just past the 112, special roo exit. You cant acces this overpass from the interstate you can only get to it from back roads. this perspective allows us to see the back side of roo, that you cant see from Bushy Branch Road.
I think this is "This Tent" being constructed
A row of Portos on the back side:
I dont know what the hell this stuff is, but they are bringing it in at the interstate entrance:
This little tent is over on the other end at the BFE field at the corner of Shedd and Bushy Branch:
Also, here is a little video I shot driving through the area on Bushy Branch, this is from Back to Front, starting at Shedd and ending up at the beginning of the property. I apologize for the wind noise. Also, when I open it with VLC, the colors are all psychedelic looking (which is cool) but it looks normal in WMP.
I think I will take more video as the site progresses, would y'all rather see more pics or video?
Update 5-26-09, another small update today, you can see where they are starting to construct the performances tents. More "stuff" laying around the site, and they are putting up the fences and laying out the driving lanes.
This is "That Tent" being constructed:
Laying out the driving lanes:
This is "The Other Tent being constructed:
A larger of view of the grounds:
More to come later!
6-1-09 A video of the main site ( www.sendspace.com/file/okw4oa ) and a few pics of other areas. These pics are all of areas that are across the street or down the road in BFE from the main site.
This is a row of portos right next to the church
The fence is built around Mr Holland's property
Another fence dividing properties
The "Corral" where they check tickets at the BFE side (corner of Bushy Branch and Shedd)
Standing at corner of BB and Shedd looking back toward roo
6-6-09 This will probably be the last pic update as the site is pretty much complete. They need to finish the main stage, but other than that, they look done. I may try to get a pic of the finished main stage if I can, but other than that, this will be it.
The corral at the corner of Bushy Branch and Shedd where they take tickets,
hey sorry to ask but does anyone have a link to the pics from this winter and also maybe the pics from last year's setup? i dont know why but i can never find anything i want when i use the search function.
