One of the most memorable festivals I've been to in my life, this was the last hoorah of mine before I drove to Oregon. I had no one to go with so I went by myself and made life long friends along the way. I rented a car, drove about 4 hours to Houston to the pre-show then drove to Austin the next day to start off my week long fun. I couldnt afford a hotel the first few nights so I stayed in my car in parking lots until cops came to shoo me away. Finally I met up with an old friend and she was nice enough to let me stay in her Hilton hotel room for the next two days. She had a tendency to run off with guys, and I even waiting up til 4am for her to get back because I didnt have a key card, so I made friends with the bands after each show. I bought a ton of merch and got to hang out backstage.
