Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us.

PostHeaderIcon Another Step Towards Bonnaroo 2010 (and adding a plan B)


4 nights of camping with Bebe.  Seems a little daunting, so for the sake of argument went out to find a hotel. (see my first Bonnaroo 2010 post HERE).

I knew it's be somewhat booked up, but I was surprised by what I found.

1 hotel.

Ok  cool, we can deal with whatever

Super 8.

Not a hotel snob and it's part of the experience.

I'm cool with that, I just want clean sheets, a place to sleep, and a shower.  Anyone want to guess what that Super 8 was going to charge during Bonnaroo week?


Still not sure why I'm surprised by that.  It's, capitalism at it's best.  But it is a 1.5 star hotel according to travelocity.

Forget that.  

Honestly, I had another 2 letter phrase in mind that starts with an 'F'..

So, in what may be a moment of genius (or epic failure, we shall see) I looked for a bed and breakfast, thinking  maybe something outside the norm might work.  And if I'm going to pay that much per night, I don't want a stupid day-old continental breakfast with fruit loops from a dispenser.

Thanks to the miracle of google maps and a zip code, I booked a bed and breakfast for 2 of the 4 nights.  Sweeeeeeet!

Anyone want to guess how much it is (with tax)?

$112.00 per night.

Jen 1.  Greedy Capitalist.  0.

actually if I owned a motel in that area during that week, i'd probably do the same.  I can't front.

The plan is this.  We could camp the first 2 nights, and then when Bebe becomes tired and in the need of real rest, I'll take her there.  Then we'll spend the second 2 nights there.  Or maybe, we'll camp all 4.  But I'm really liking how my plan B is shaping up.  If we decide not to camp, I'm not out much on the deposit.

There was another plan B to help make our first Roo experience a little easier.  Rent a tent at Bonnaroo Tent City .  Somehow though, I still think we'd run into the same problems, so that is now our plan C.




Here we come!
(can you tell how excited I am?)

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
