Help me make it through the night...
Dry camping. Well, not this morning, 'cause the rain is coming down. ;-)
It was interesting last night. The guys in the motorhome next to us (father and son) fired up their generator, first we've heard them use it. I thought maybe they needed a/c... nope, they plugged in a bass amp outside and started playing. Just the bass.
Joan asked me, "Do people generally listen to just the bass?"
"Well, maybe... if you're a bass player. And right now, we're listening to just the bass." ;-) Not much option, since the RVs were requested to park "about 6 feet apart."
After a half hour or so of "just the bass," a guitar player joined in. Apparently, they didn't know any of the same songs... or at least that's how it sounded. It's a music festival of sorts - we kinda expected this. On the other hand, the folks next door have been listening to the regular running of our generator. You deal with it.
Quiet hours are between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm (other than generators). The playing went on beyond that, but wrapped up around 11:00... when we also heard a faint rumble of thunder in the distance.
It was surprisingly quiet when we went to bed around 11:30.
Turning on the TV this morning, there was a piece about the Sweetwater Gear Fest on the local news...
They were saying this is the largest music consumer event/festival of this type in the country. What little we've seen so far, I believe it.
Time to clean up and head out into the wet. Just like Woodstock; well, for music stuff buyers. ;-)
