Chapter five: FireFly

We left Burlington Vermont Wednesday morning at about 10am heading to Dover Delaware. As far as google maps was concerned it was going to be an 8 hour drive. Seeing that we were doing this as cheap as possible we "avoided tolls" anywhere we went. This took us through Connecticut which is known for its traffic. We also had to drive through the Bronx in New York and were held up but not only traffic, but groups of dirt bikes and quads doing wheelies in the streets, which was awesome. Eight hours turned into fourteen and it was midnight by the time we hit Delaware. The rain was pretty bad and we figured the festival would be a muddy mess. We only brought one pair of shoes so we stopped at Walmart to by water shoes, cause were adults and we don't walk around bare foot in the mud where a bunch of college age kids are drinking and throwing up. From there we went to a casino to sleep in the car. Casino parking lots are well lit and have 24 hour security, a good place for free sleeping, no hotels for these broke travelers. By this time it was around 2am and we had to be up at 5:30 to get in line and get our camping spot. Luckily we were one of the first people in line and got a great camping spot up close to the music venue. At around 7:30am we were setting up camp and met some really cool kids from New York and Virginia that we made friends with instantly. After a short nap we wasted no time to get to partying before heading into the Venue.
