Thursday morning for me.
What time are you leaving from Rochester Hills? I live at Squirrel and South Blvd and our group will be leaving on Wednesday evening... we should get a bunch of people together and hit up Coney Island or something for dinner and take off all around the same time.
Our plan is to leave Oklahoma City early Wednesday morning and drive the 11-hour trip all day. We hope to get to the farm to set up camp, have a few beers and get some sleep Wednesday night. I have a question, though: Have any of you set up your camp in the dark? Was it difficult? Last year we set up as the sun was rising Thursday morning so it wasn't a problem, but if dark tent-pitching (no, not that type, sillies) is frustrating or difficult, we may wait and roll in Thursday morning.
dark-tent-pitching is the best!!! To make it even more fun, first you need to get EXTRA-drunk, then do it!
No seriously, it's not that difficult. I usually just flip on all the lanterns and flashlights, crack a brew, smoke a bowl and go to work. I've set up in the dark at the roo a few times. IF you screw anything up, you can just fix it in the morning. All you really need to set up wednesday night is your tent and a sleeping bag if it becomes difficult.
I plan on being set up and drunk off my ass by Wednesday midnight.. just like last year.. I really don't care about the bad camping.. I like relaxing thursday. and I don't mind the walk, I'm at centeroo all day anyway
I might be a little too ambitious here, Me and my buddy leave Charlotte at 2 am Wednesday night/Thursday morning and I'm planning on getting in line around 9 or 10 am, so probably be set up by noon... hopefully.
Leaving Columbia by 1:00 pm Wednesday, arrive Manchester by 7:30, drive it on in. Should be set up by midnight even with a wait. Then I'm getting my sleep on, bigtime. There just ain't much after that...
