from my understanding and experience there is literally no partying or anything at oasis itself. Gold is a close walk though.


as far as tickets - sounds like lawn is your move..
Bah. Pompous is definitely not us, so I guess maybe we should rethink it. It just seems so much easier.

How do you get all your gear there? Do you check it all? Iíve had so many bad luggage experiences that I hate the idea of checking anything (I literally packed in only a carryon for a 2.5 week trip to Europe because of this!). We camp for one weekend and end up having an entire minivan full of stuff. I just canít wrap my head around how we could get even half that amount of stuff across the country! Iíd love to hear your system for some ideas!

    6 suitcases and 2 backpacks travel for free on Southwest, for a couple:

    1 hardside golf bag case: 10' x 10' pop-up shade, extension cord and string lights for pop-up, 2 pillows, tools for camping

    1 62" airline-max duffel: 48 quart coleman cooler filled with stuff, 2 sleeping bags, 4 person tent, small stuff need for camping

    1 29" airline-max hardside suitcase: big stuff needed for camping, shoes, big stuff

    1 29" airline-max softside suitcase: My wife's stuff, whatever she wants

    Then, we both carry on a carry-on suitcase and a backpack

    if you can travel europe for 2.5 weeks with only a carry on, you can absolutely camp at gorge with 2 checked bags and a carry on.

    I'll give mine since I'm solo:

    1 LARGE army style duffel bag with all my clothes, bedding, towel, & flagpole
    1 Large cooler - tent, small airmattress, pump, misc gear, glowsticks, tarps, etc


    I have one of my good friends that lives in seattle who can hold on to a few things for me, but you can buy a canopy online for $45 and pick it up when you pick up your groceries (that's if you even decide to make food, you can buy all your food on site). Same with camp chairs ($5-10).

    hey now!

    I've done Oasis the last 3 years and while there's no crazy partying, there are people up late hanging out and drinking together. Last year they had someone come in and play music, there's massage stands. So yeah, it's more sophisticated and older people.

    We did it for the ease of it all. Not having to bring any camping gear and very little food (they have breakfast and food after the show).

    I think it's a good mix of socializing but not overwhelming with people.

    Anyone else endure the shitshow that was Wildhorse passes this year? I guess they're under new management (but I see Scott and Cindi still posting, so not sure), but it was a hell of a messup. Managed to secure passes for our entire group luckily, but you'd think with their prices they'd be able to afford a website that doesn't crash!

    It sleeps 4 (one queen, one one pullout couch) and a private FLUSHABLE bathroom.

    Far from it. Looks like the cheapest ticket is $140+ with fees. Hard pass.

    Hot take: N0 is overrated. Spend N0 in Seattle and hit the road on Friday. You get your pick of camping spots since there is little-to-no direction after Thursday when the big crowds arrive.

    well, that's certainly *A* take..

    I personally am a huge fan of not having to do any work on show days. The morning of N1 I wake up, crack a beer and enjoy watching everyone roll in..

    for a lot of us, we don't see most of our camp mates or gorge friends but once a year, so the added night focused on hanging out and catching up is great.
