Is the RV just gonna be there?  Or do you/we pick it up somewhere??

It will be there ready and waiting for you when you arrive. It's hardwired for power so no running the generator. they even empty and refill the tanks once per weekend.

I remember walking out of Magnaball Saturday(?) night and the entire network of site bathrooms were down due to a pump problem or something, and the portashitters were all full after the long day. Nasty stuff.

PG I bet you can squeeze more than 4 in that RV.

It is about double what you would pay to rent an RV for that amount of time, but you avoid the worst part of renting an RV, which is driving it and having to clean it/dump it/return it.  It's a premium for sure but renting and driving an RV is a fucking pain.  You also limit your chance of ripping the AC unit off the roof when you got to pick up your friends at a hotel and the lobby roof has low clearance  :| That was a bummer.

What's up with Glen Close? Is it just ... closer? Why so much pricier?

So let's say you have an RV full of people. The Glen Close RV thing comes with two person passes. If you have, like, two extra people, they have to buy additional Glen Close weekend passes for $425 ... so that's $175 more than regular just to sleep in the RV you already paid Glen Close prices to park there? I'm confused.

honestly, the $5k isn't that bad.  that's right about what 3 nights at a luxury tent in Africa costs... no :phish: included, but at that price you usually get all meals, drinks, and laundry, as well as an en-suite bathroom.  and a butler.  and a shitload of animals. 

hit me up if any of you loaded w00ks would prefer that instead.

the most deadly animal there is actually the hippo, by far, killing upwards of 3,000/year.  if i can give you a tip:  never get between a hippo and water, and if in the water already, never get between a hippo and deeper water!

Seriously, we went out in a tiny little wooden boat to check them out while in Ethiopia.
This guy was one of about 4 right next to us.
They could have easily flipped it and made a meal out of us.

It kinda "Sold Out"
They posted online said it was "Sold Out" and people to not come if they didnt have a ticket already. But really if you showed up they sold you a ticket as long as other people in the car had one....so it was like they wanted to cap it but didnt shut anyone out if you went against their request to not come

Maybe it's been mentioned here already, but, some people I know (whom I do not trust in this regard) are convinced that the Curveball is going to have to do with band members side projects.

Supposedly, like an Oyster head reunion or some shit.

Fwiw, I think this is a terrible idea, unless they have side project band members rotating on and off the stage during an epic 4th set jam session.

Have you ever heard of extra innings?  Also, as far as that side project stuff,  I suggest you stick to getting your info from the Paug dude.  If someone honestly thinks Phish is going to use their own festival for an Oysterhead reunion, they're on bath salts.

Allow me to get on my soapbox...

Iíve decided to skip Curveball and cancel all pending trips to the USA. I canít imagine crossing the border under the current US administration - Iím going to ďBuy CanadianĒ and travel in Canada for the foreseeable future.

Phish management was super cool and refunded my ticket purchase.

It was a really difficult decision, and Iím bummed.

Yep. Just got the email that my stuff is shipping today. Should be wristband and RV pass.

ETA... Iíve worked with FGT wristbands for years at acl fest. The email you got has a link to register your wristband... my advice is DO THAT ASAP. It is totally worth it.

Once it is registered to your name they can take care of you if anything happens... like you lose it or whatever. Theyíre actually really helpful as long as you register because they can shut your old one down and render it useless and issue a new one.

yeah... sure, like that hasnt been going on in america in one form or another for the last 200 years.
Still not seeing why that is stopping any normal person from going to a phish show.
Letting american politics dictate your own enjoyment of life is pretty pointless since it is a schizophrenic institution at best that can completely do a 180 in terms of policy over night with each election.

Seriously, go see Phish.
If Jerry Garcia was playing in the worst place on earth i'd be there in heartbeat. fuck the world and its politics.

Yeah, I guess I was wondering if anyone had been to Magnaball where they had the store set up as well and how it worked the last time. I could be wrong but I imagine it would be very similar.

Definitely lines early on, but IIRC it was open pretty much all day/night, and the store had copies of most of their vinyl releases. They had a few listening stations and definitely only let so many people in at a time. I don't remember if they had a limit on number of copies you could purchase at one time of the new releases, but I feel like they did. Maybe 4?

There was also a bag check to hold your stash until you picked it up, and I think they had mailers.
