    Hey Rob
    The premier camping looks really nice, did you camp at the Gorge campground last year or wildhorse? haha I went to Bentley too. How's Somerville? We were looking at places there for this upcoming September but we ended up finding another place in Brighton. If you could find that email that'd be great because we tend to overpack as is so the less we need to bring the better. Also were you 25 when you rented a car in WA? The three of us are all 24. Again thanks so much for your help and sorry for so many questions.

    Hey Catie,
    We'll be camping at the Gorge Campground, we got the premier camping this year (first time doing that). I've been Somerville for about a year now, and I lived in Waltham for the better part of six years before this. I went to Bentley then lived off of Lake St. then on Trapelo Rd. near the Belmont line.
    Another thing about the packing: you definitely won't be able to bring (or won't need) everything on some of the lists online, but I think I might have a shorter list we made, which I'll send you if I can find it in my email.

    Hey Rob!

    Wow that is a huge temperature range. Thanks for the heads up! haha I just put the zip code into weather.com
    tomorrow goes from 91 to 60. haha we've been slacking a little in the planning, but we're all sitting down together tomorrow
    to book the campsite I was hoping to book Wildhorse but I just looked on the website and it's all booked. Which sucks because that's where we wanted to say but there are still sites available for the Gorge Campground so tomorrow night we'll book that. Where are you guys camping at? I live in Brighton but me and my roommates have also lived in the Fenway area and Windsor Village in Waltham, haha we move around a lot. How long have you lived in Somerville for?

    Hey Catie,

    We brought sleeping bags and blankets with us, and you definitely will need the blankets. It's basically the desert out there, so temperatures are 90-100 during the day (no humidity though) and they plummet to the high 50's/low 60's at night. I'd also recommend you bring a sweatshirt to the concerts with you, since that's the time the temps are dropping. Type in 98824 for the ZIP on weather.com and you'll see what I mean about the day and night temps. Where are you camping? And which part of Boston do you live in?

    Hey Rob,
    Thanks so much for your help. I'm going with
    two of my roommates and none of us have ever been to Washington before, so I'm glad Seattle is the best to fly into for the Gorge so that we can do some sightseeing as well. That's a great idea about the cooler, we will definetely be doing that as well. Did you bring sleeping bags or blankets? How cold was it at night camping there?

    haha i'm sure i'll have more questions as it gets closer. Thanks again for your help!

    Hey Catie,

    Flying into Seattle is definitely the best way to get to the west coast from Boston. This is the third year two of my friends and I have gone, and the past two we flew to Seattle on the Thursday before the weekend. We rented a car right at the airport and stocked up on non-perishables at a Walmart right after landing, spent the night at a hotel in Seattle (great city). On Friday, we left the city around 10am, stopped at a Safeway to get beer, ice, meat to grill, etc. and were at the Gorge by 2 (It's a straight shot East on I-90, just about 2 hours). As far as I know there is no bus that goes from Seattle to the venue, plus you'd be hauling a lot of food, camping gear, etc with you. Last year was a big improvement of 2007 since we knew what we were getting into. We checked a huge cooler onto the plane and packed our tent in that.

    I hope this is helpful and definitely feel free to get back to me with any more questions.
    Rob

    Hey I'm Catie sorry to bother you but on the toupstown website I saw that you were going to the gorge this year and you were from boston and I was wondering is it best to fly into Seattle? And also how do you get there do you rent a car or is there a bus or anything that takes you there? Or what do you think is the best way to get to the Gorge.

    Thanks for your help!
    Catie
