What up 'Roo peeps? Recently decided to do Bonnaroo after deciding that I was sick of my friend being a "one-upper" (whether his stories are false or true is another ordeal..lol), so when he told me that he was doing Coachella this year I was like, "Yeah, I thought about that, but for my first music festival, I gotta do it right - so I am going to Bonnaroo" - much like my first real Mardi Gras was in New Orleans, since nothing has compared, and I feel the same will be true for Bonnaroo. A man of my word, I am doing it, and probably sponsoring 3 other friends to make the trek for the ultimate experience. Once I decided I was going is when I discovered this forum. So without further adieu...
