Another epic Bonnaroo for the books. This year we camped in the RV section and let me tell you- it is unbelievably nice to have a “home” to come back to every night (*cough* morning).

For those of you wondering what the RV section is like, I’ve put together a list of the highlights:

  • RV Campers are allowed plenty of space around the vehicle to set up a popup tent. We even had a friend set up a single-person tent to sleep in and still had lots of room.
  • Generators can be run all the time. Yes, it was noisy at the beginning, but by the end we were so used to the sound that it got to be almost comforting. We held out until the last day to run the A/C, however, and man did that feel good.
  • The RV sections are really close to the highway. It took about 30 minutes from first entering the line to the time we parked the vehicle. Leaving was also a breeze; we were out in about 10 minutes, tops.
  • Water trucks and dumping trucks run through the RV sections frequently throughout the day. It costs $50 to empty the RV and $50 to fill it up again. They were very helpful and took care of everything (thank God, because we had no idea how to do it). Between 4 people, we used 2 rounds of re-fills.
  • There were SO many different types of RVs. Decorated school buses, tricked out campers. Holy crap. We felt lame bringing in a boring old Cruise America RV!
  • Security and police do come through the RV sections, on horseback and on foot.
  • Pack games! We saw beer pong, giant jenga, cornhole, the game with the balls attached to strings that you fling at 3-runged posts (?), playing cards and kiddie pools.
  • Yes, you’re allowed on the top of your RV. However, Cruise America RVs do not come with a means of getting up there- so if you’re planning on doing a bit of roof-top sunbathing, invest in ladder.

May 23-25, Bethel Woods, NY

Wow, what a weekend. It began with rain on Friday and turned into a mudfest by Sunday night. There was a 30-foot tall teddy bear, a Swedish cider sanctuary, rolling grassy hills, fireworks and a stage shaped like a giant wooden boat. I saw people pass out, make out, black out and even get engaged.

Hell yeah. Live on, Woodstock.

Tomorrowworld 2013 Questions & Answers

1. Did you camp there?

Yes! And it was awesome. However, the parking situation was terrible. All General Admission campers had to park their vehicles in the general parking area and then walk with their camping…
