New year, time for a bump!
For transport, I didn't feel a bike was necessary in the least. People had them, and we'll probably bring ours this year, but I don't think we ever had a 45+ walk anywhere, but I can't swear to that as I wasn't exactly timing myself. I was camping with a negative nelly and even with all the things he complained about, distances and walking weren't among them.
If you do bring a bike, avoid canopies or anything that is taller than you on the bike, I saw a few people get caught up in low hanging branches.
The river did help a lot in keeping us cool, but I had a hard time falling or staying asleep in my hot muggy tent. At least in the summer in west Texas it's cool and dry at night. I've got a bigger tent this year, which will hopefully help with airflow, but I'm also considerring making some kind of personal cooler and a 12v fan and using solar panels for charge. I don't really believe in generators but I want more energy for partying so I feel okay drifting away from roughing it.
"It's impossible." said pride.
"It's risky." said experience.
"It's pointless." said reason.
"Give it a try." whispered the heart.
