The thing I hated about going was... it was SO COLD! It was also very windy, which added to the bitterness of everything. Every night, I would be curled up in my sleeping bag freezing to death! The guys were so cold, they brought their sleeping bags out for breakfast! However, the night life at the camp site was so fun. When it was pitch black, people lined up at the porta pottys, and if someone came out, they cheered really loud! We all played marco polo with people from other tents too. It was so funny! I also went star tipping for the first time, had my first Mt. Dew and Dr. Pepper, and met lots of cool people.
My favorite concert was probably the Family Force 5 (shown here) show or August Burns Red. FF5 was so fun because it was at the main stage and we had so much fun singing along, dancing and "shaking out badonkadonk for Jesus!". The August show was so intense! So much moshing was going on, we even saw people bleeding. At the end of the As I Lay Dying show, 3 people got driven off in a mini ambulance, one guy broke his leg! I found a lot of cool new bands like These Hearts, The Suit, For All Those Sleeping, and more! I have to say I was disapointed at the Relient K show. They performed lots of their slow songs, which I didn't like. I didn't think the younger kids were prepared for the crowd action, and so there were LOTS of bad crowd surfers, and it got really annoying. We probably dropped a lot of people too because they didn't know how to crowd surf. I got 4 shirts (August Burns Red, Gwen Stacy, These Hearts, and Children 18:3), and 5 cds (2 of These Hearts, the New August cd, Everyday Sunday, The Suit)
