This was my first camping experience, so I was pretty psyched about it (especially because I'm going to try to do some of it on my solo road trip this summer). After setting up the tents, we went to the Sasquatch Music Festival to check out Manu Chao and Arcade Fire who both rocked the main stage. When Bjork came on, we packed up and left :)
Saturday morning, the crew cooked some great food (anything tastes good when you're camping, but Sarah and Daurie definitely hooked up key items like strawberries, veggies, and hot dogs). As we were getting ready, we got some crazy wind gusts (like mini tornados) that almost blew off our tents (an ominous sign of the night to come).
The rest of the night was also memorable, but not as fun - there was so much wind that our tent kept blowing off to the side - one whole side was bending so that it was in Dan's face while he was sleeping. Then, we did what I called the "most annoying chore" of all time and took down the tent at 3am in the freezing cold and slept in Dan and Daurie's cars. I definitely won't forget that camping experience!
**PS - Here is an article at Pitchfork describing the concert in detail with some great pics of artists on stage
