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.

In. And may be interested in camping

Word! 

If you aren't camping, uh, where you gonna sleep duder?
Airbnb and a rental maybe?  Not sure. Waiting to hear from some phellowship friends

Ah, yeah hopefully they have a spot for you because those are all gone. 
I'll ask my people. My one buddy said hes out already. So hold a spot for me if you can as a contingency. I'll let you know ASAP

You dudes flying into Seattle I presume?

Seattle lol. Wenatchee is the only airport to fly into.  Believe me.  Even if I lived in Seattle, I would fly to Wenatchee.  Thinking about doing it myself this year.

You seem awfully drunk for 6 oíclock on a Sunday night.

It's $300 and gets you there in 2 hours.  Consider that I will be spending about $200 on gas, it's not that crazy.  If it drops down to $250, I might pull the trigger.  Sitting on a plane drinking for 2 hours sounds lot better to me than driving for 5 and a half.

ETA:  Plus, I can be back in Portland by 8AM on Monday which helps with work and the kids.

So you helicopter in from the airport then?

It's pretty crazy dude.

Not a bad plan.

I mean, can you even rent a car at the Wenatchee airport?

Don't know.  My plan was to Uber the 15 minutes to the condo and rely on the shuttle.  But after putting in for 6 tickets today ($500) my plan is seeming a little more like a pipe dream.  I suppose I'll just drive and pick my friends up the airport  :|

Wenatchee is like an hour from the venue. . .

My condo is right in the middle.  25 from airport and then 25 to venue.

So my Portland friends are suggesting Gold camping - or premier over the terrace...whats the differences? Looks like from the website the Terrace is greener grasses and quieter. It says Gold still has private restrooms and free showers - no donuts and coffee though.

Gold is the closest to the venue, but then itís a long hike if you want to hit shakedown after the shows, so Iíd vote against that.

I broke down the differences premier and terrace in the conversation quoted in the second post here. 

Terrace is definitely nicer, but I could be talked into premier to save money.

To me, Premier is really the same as general camping, just smaller.  The locale is basically the same and although it is not as crazy, it's still pretty crazy and still pretty huge.  Regular camping is super huge, premier is just less huge.  I like Terrace because it's only a few hundred people.  Gold seems OK, you are really close to the venue but really removed from the other campsites.  If you can wrangle Handicap camping, that's pretty sweet.  It's basically at the entrance to the venue.  Last time, it gen pop was so crowded and my friends rolled in right before the first show started and they just put them in the handi camping.  It's super chill.

Premier is way more chill than general. Plus it has shuttles and real bathrooms.

But itís definitely not baller like terrace.

word! Thanks for the info dudes!

Think we are going to try for Premier at on sale to save some coin. Who knows, could end up in Terrace if we pull a pass at on sale.

Iíd say you can add Michelle and I to this RC. Weíre at 90%....

Iím trying so hard to be responsible and not commit until I know Jaunteeís summer schedule... but, in reality...itís gonna take a quite serious show offer conflict to draw me away from the Gorge. I missed Ď15 and that was just one time too many...

Plus, Iím only 2 shows behind Birdman... and heís going... so I clearly need to keep up to surpass.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.
