Well, it’s official. I’ve joined the Mac world. I now know what it is to have a computer that doesn’t overheat at random, threaten to dump everything on my hard drive, or take five minutes to load a page I didn’t even mean to click on. It is glorious. Beautiful, you might say. So it’ll be hard to leave behind my new MacBook after only a few days together. But it’ll be worth it, because this weekend, I’ll be going to the inaugural Firefly Music Festival.
Among the many bands that will be playing Firefly are Jack White, the Black Keys, Modest Mouse, the Flaming Lips, Young the Giant, the Wallflowers, Fitz and the Tantrums, Grouplove and OHMAHGAH just look at the lineup for yourself. Plus, there’ll be hot air balloons, a Dogfish Head brewery, an arcade, and a vineyard. As you might imagine, I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile.
And this is what packing for three days of camping in Dover, Delaware looks like. A little messy, a little scary, but carefully and meticulously thought-out. Target had no idea what was about to hit it when I came along yesterday to stock up on supplies.
I went back and forth about bringing my manual camera since it’s so heavy and I still don’t have a phone with a working camera. But I knew I had to document the musical experience, and you know what that means. Fun photos to come following my extra-long and MUCH-needed weekend.
(I know what you’re thinking. I’m just another one of those bloggers with photos of her perfectly assembled and wrinkle-free wardrobe. Right? That’s what you’re thinking.)
This bag is essential for every trip I make EVER. It’s a Swiss Army travel bag, and it holds every toiletry I need. There are several dozen pockets, zippers, and secret compartments to hold things like foot cream (kidding) and butt wipes (not). And yes, I’m bringing makeup to a weekend-long outdoor festival. Not just ’cause I’m vain. It has SPF in it.
Why yes, these are $30 boots from Target. It isn’t a music festival without slightly impractical (but oh-so-cute) shoes.
I’m certain I thought of everything (going to All Good festival last year taught me a lot), but pictured above is kinda the most important thing, aside from underwear. I’ve already checked my bag twice to make sure I actually packed my wristband. I have the tendency to forget things that grant me entrance to the thing I’m going to. In the past, I’ve forgotten prom tickets, concert tickets, and IDs. Always makes for a good story later.
So that’s what John and I will be up to this weekend. And I’ll be gathering good blog material for later… when I am reunited with my glorious new computer.
