sasquatched.

it was a total fail this weekend photo wise, but can i really be expected to man a camera, drink a beer, and have a kick arse time all at once? no? ok, so glad you understand. so as a result of all of that there, i only got a few photos of us doing the sasquatch plus a handful of blurry phone photos-who was i kidding? like dave grohl's beautiful face was really going to turn out from a football stadium away at 11pm at night.
i am burnt and their is a inch of dirt on my feet in a flip flop pattern but i am here to promise you that as usual the gorge-sasquatch-eastern washington did not disappointed. even the mini tornado that ripped through the camping area kept us in a whirlwind of fun<---hehe.
i thought for sure my excited mood was over when amy and i got lost for 15 minutes trying to find the gorge, then when we had to wait in line for ever getting into the campground, and for sure when we somehow ended up getting discarded back in the farthest possible camping area ever. no...wait, it wasn't even gorge camping! it was like...'oh, crap we miscalculated the number of people camping' so lets ask this farmer if these people can camp in his alfalfa field amongst his sprinkler equipment and hidden pot holes. you know what though? the second i had a beer in my hand and we were headed in to watch my ALL TIME favorite band the foo fighters, i was over  it.
friday was short and sweet with just that one band we cared about seeing and then we froze or booties off waiting for saturday to come where we started off the morning with mimosas, eggs, and bacon. even though the sun was touch and go and for a second we had to do some anti-rain dances the weather was pretty good. oh! but their was a whirlwind that ripped through our area of camp, sending tents, easy ups, and folding chairs flying super high into the air and crashing back at people and cars...it was nuts! we all braced for it as we watched it's path and held down our tents. while we waited for bands we liked to start we drank the day away watching the boys through frisbies and footballs with new awesome friends.
when we finally got into the gorge for iron and wine drunk as shit amy and i somehow became the official sasquatch high-fivers...maybe it was our main walkway seat choice? it was fun except the people trying to slap our hands as hard as possible and the creep who tried to steal my beer.
when deathcab finally rolled around of course they were amazing but it was so hard to enjoy with how cold it was! all i could focus on was my shivering and i was even weraing jeans and a helly hansen coat! what the hell washington? get with the program...it is almost summer! this 60 crap is not going to fly for much longer.
so as usual, had the time of my life! got a sunburn and can't wait to do it again for soundgarden in july.
ps, i am so mad-i was totally going to bless you with a video of our high-fiveing action but the one that was taken is only 1.13 second long, boo.
