Gorge conversation from the tour announcement thread.

Sweeeeet!!!!

I'll be putting in for a terrace campsite, camping with the best amenities, you can put up to six people in there and it's just me and my bro so let me know if anybody else wants in. 

Gonna be awesome dudes!
when does one buy camping tickets to the gorge? My wife is on board and Iím now putting my chances at 99%

Oh Shit! 

Should be the same as the regular Ticketmaster on sale date. 

It's a little pricey but we should all try to do terrace, it's totally worth it.

Do you recall approximately how much the terrace camping was last time?  What are the main differences between terrace and premier?

Itís probably gonna be in the $450 range for three nights. 

Pros: 
Shorter/no line for shuttles
More bathrooms/showers
Larger campsite with picnic table
Better view
Can sort of hear sound check
Coffee and donuts in the morning

Cons:
Longer walk to gen camping
In 2013 high winds blew our ez up off a ledge and broke it

We should all definitely try to coordinate and camp in the same section.  If people donít want to spend the money for terrace I could do premier too.

On a raft, in the Columbia river is also an acceptable answer.

Myself and the wife are in. Iím down with trying to camp with the crew, just point me in the right direction. We are thing about renting a fully loaded vw vanagon for the week, thus avoiding having to either drag everything  out there with us or purchasing gear when we arrive.

Yeah, if you are going to camp, renting a Sprinter or similar camping van is the best way for two people to do it. Tenting at the Gorge for 3 days is pretty brutal unless you enjoy falling asleep at 7 and waking up at 9 because your tent is 100 degrees, it's bathed in blazing sunlight and the people next to you are having a Disco Party brunch.  Another good reason for Terrace camping.  You can stay up and do your thing, but for the most part, it's quiet.  Also, actual bathrooms and showers, not porta potties.  Even VIP camping has scud bathrooms and showers.  Just a little less people.

If you do need a RV/van, I'd try and make a reservation now, they're going to get snapped up (if they are not already).  You need AC at the Gorge.

Either way, pumped to see you out here!

Also, Terrace camping gets snapped up fast.  Pretty much need to go for those during on sale before getting your show tix.
