Bonnaroo and Montgomery too

Hello from Montgomery, Alabama. We'll be sure to write more, much more, about the Bonnaroo music festival we attended in Tennessee over the weekend. First just a brief update.

After three days of incredible heat, wild rain, sweat and mud we made our way out of the festival late Sunday night. Initially we'd planned to leave Monday morning but after our traffic experience getting in we opted for an earlier departure. The exit took three hours, as the sudden exodus of fans (partially brought on by heavy rain) took organizers by surprise. We drove about 30 minutes to a campground in Monteagle, TN where we regained electricity and water, showered ("washed off the Bonnaroo") and had our first quiet evening in a while.

Today's drive was roughly five hours, including a 20-minute foray back into the Eastern time zone and 15 minutes in northwest Georgia. We're here in Montgomery for three nights. We'll do a little touring but first some R&R and catching up on some very muddy laundry.

If you'd like to read more about Bonnaroo, Google has many news stories linked on the topic (some good news, some not so good).

If you're looking for our Bonnaroo photos, stay tuned - they should be posted in a day or two. If you're one of the people we met at the festival, please drop us a note!
