No, I couldn't afford the trip. I live on the west coast, and don't have an affluent
family who can pay for me to fly out there.
Instead, I will go to a local rock festival near Satsop, Washington. Where a farmer
has loaned several acres to a promotion company to hold a special rock festival,
attracting people from all over the west coast, who can come. They promised
well known groups to entertain, but they didn't promise the sun would be shining.
It turned out that the concert was rained out, and it was a miserable experience for
those who came without a tent or some shelter. We were lucky for bringing a big
tent, and we provided shelter for many people. And the next day, there was a
steady stream of people leaving, while many young people were still lined up at
the gate to come in. But the most disappointing thing, is that the rain kept away
the big names who were supposed to appear. That was the biggest surprise. And
so none of us got our money's worth.
