I had a great time at the brunch once I settled in and chatted with some of you. Everyone made me feel welcome for the most part. A special thanks to Angela (LLL) and Quacker, who genuinely looked excited to see me and made me feel like I belonged at that brunch. I don't think you two will ever know what your kindness meant to me in that situation. But I am extremely appreciative. Quacker, I looked for your RV on Saturday morning but could find it. Sorry we didn't reconnect.
On Thursday afternoon, I arrived at the VIP campsite and began to set up my living area for the weekend. This was the first year I didn't have an RV, so I had a lot to learn about setting up a campsite. While I was setting up the massive canopy above my tent, a gentleman named Steve lent me a much needed hand. I didn't surprise me that someone at Bonnaroo was willing to help for nothing in return. What did surprise me, however, was when Steve showed up at the brunch and he himself was an Inforooer. Then I thought about it, and realized I shouldn't be surprised at all that it was a member of this community that helped a sweaty camping novice in need. That act of kindness essentially epitomizes the character of the people here. Thanks Steve!
I'll have a lot of memories of Bonnaroo 2012, including the brunch. And most especially when I left the brunch and went on an odyssey to POD 8 with Cursed Lono and Captain Jack. Needless to say, it was an extremely interesting and unforgettable walk. Thanks guys, I had fun.
To the core people who ensure that this brunch happens every year, you really have built something special. Hopefully it continues year after year. I look forward to the 2013 Inforoo Brunch.
