First time in a RV. First time going to a music festival. First time camping. First time road trip. Popping a lot of cherries this week. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a few family affairs, like heading to Miami or maybe visiting family in Pennsylvania. Does anybody really count those? I know I don’t! This time had a great group of friends to make this trip a little bit more random with better laughs.
Departure 5am, The RV is spacey, we all have our beds picked out, board games and a hell lot of beers.
Destination: Manchester, Tennessee for the infamous Bonnaroo Festival.I’m usually one to get car sick, but with all the sleep I’ve gotten, I think I’m good for a while. According to the Captain of this RV, we have about 4 more hours to go. I have to admit, I’m pretty excited and nervous all wrapped in to one. It’s a little tough to be going out enjoying myself mid-June out of all times. I feel guilty. My family is probably sitting together at my grandmother’s house, eating, drinking and praying in Jasmine’s name. This week is the third Anniversary of her tragic death. Yet, here I am enjoying myself. Knowing Jas, that’s how she would’ve wanted it to be. Hell, she’d probably would have been jealous if I didn’t invite her along. And we for one have enough beer to make her happy… she was always the life of the party. The loudest laugh and snarky remarks. Damn, how I miss her. In another week she would have been 26. Now that would have called for a celebration. I’m sure she would have had a bottle of Patron hidden around somewhere.We’re still in Virginia somewhere with the view of clear skies, lots of trees and a trucks big ass in front of us. I’m trying to kill this bottle of wine before we get there, since glass isn’t allowed in the farm. Tastes like juice and it’s making me sick. I guess that’s what I get for buying wine from BJ’s.
Ramon and the Captain have been alternating the role of the driver in control. I’m sure they’re exhausted, especially because they’re the only 2 that drive. The rest of suck.. we know.
I’ll see you guys soon… in Tennessee!
Oh, and ps. check out the digital drawings I’ll be posting up at the end of each post…. gotta kill time somehow, why not draw cartoon versions of myself and my outfit!
