Bonnaroo (update)

I went to Bonnaroo this year, and this is the view from the top of our RV.

Update: I had a good time, but it’s probably something I won’t ever do again. Even with an RV and an air-conditioning (most people were in tents), it’s long and hot and I missed my family. I did get to see some good shows like Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Phoenix, Tenacious D and The Crystal Method (my favorite), but I prefer ACL here in Austin since at the end of the day I can go home, wash the grime off and sleep in my own bed.

I probably would have had a different take on it 10 years ago.

Cold really means cold

One thing that has surprised me here in Michigan is how incredibly cold the water is—and I’m not talking about the lakes, I’m talking about out of the faucet.

I’m used to the water in Austin where during the summer the “cold” water is pretty much room temperature. Here however, after a few seconds the water is so cold it makes your hands ache. I know this isn’t exactly the most interesting vacation update, but I just find it strange. It’s in the 70s and 80s during the day, and gets down into the 50s or 60s at night, and I wouldn’t think those temperatures would be cold enough to make the water so cold.
