I know it's been a few days, but we have been pretty busy. We arrived in Florence AZ on Wednesday, got our bearings on Thursday and then spent all day Friday in Tempe AZ at our new boss's office training on the equipment and website.
We moved out to the festival site on Tuesday afternoon and have been busy ever since.
In case there is anyone who does not know what we are doing, we are working for a company that does the ticketing software, hardware and implementation of the equipment. We are responsible for making sure the equipment works, training the users and jumping in to help on our own equipment when necessary. We will be traveling to 7 festivals this year...Here in Florence, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Colorado and New Mexico this year.
The first day of the festival (Country Thunder) was very very busy, we were all out in the entrance car lanes working....they seemed never to end. We were very tired that night and the second day Dave worked in the car lines and I worked in the Will Call trailer.
Today....well today we are sitting in our trailer keeping warm and dry. It has been raining since early this morning and is supposed to continue raining through the afternoon. No acts at the festival have been canceled and cars continue to trickle in. Since our equipment is working we are holed up here and the rest of the guys are holed up in their trailer. Here's a shot of our little encampment.
So now we are just sitting here watching the cars and trucks get stuck in the mud and throwing it around.
Oh, the little things when we live this lifestyle!
I also wanted to show you this weird shaped tree. It's the only one on this highway to Casa Grande and it has to be shaped weird.....
Well, I'm off for now. I'll try to come up with something a little more interesting next time. Here is a sunset at Country Thunder to end with.
