Observation at midnight:

When you'r one of the elders, rolling up 100 feet of AWG 10 extension cord to get ready to move is a lot harder than rolling out the same cord. It took two breaks, a couple of coffees, a sitdown or two, and extended conversation with a couple of youngsters who think they're "experienced campers" to get the regular hookup down and packed ready for morning, and a few minutes more to roll out a lighter weight cord, for quick pickup in the morning to get us through the night.

Maybe if I'd left the Jack out of the coffee it would have gone quicker, but there's no real hurry as long as everything is ready by 07:00 CDT tomorrow.

It appears that a small part of the population here intends to stay up for the big event, but we "old folk" will nap for at least 4 or 5 hours. All seems in good order (or as close as is necessary) and tomorrow we'll be at the festival.

I don't expect it to feel a lot different than the past two months we've spent in the campground here (we came earlier than usual), but there definitely will be more music and it will be a lot easier to find the old friends.

See y'all in the morning.

John
