View Full Version : New England > Waka
03-09-2006, 11:20 PM
I am going to waka from Maine, is anyone goin from new england area. I plan on buying a used car soon anyway, so i will be able to drive but id rather hitch a ride with someone else.
Anyway let me know if your headed from new england, I might be traveling by myself as of right now so let me know if you need a ride.
03-10-2006, 01:27 AM
Umphreeker, i'm 20 min. outside of Albany, NY, which looks like it's on your way. lemme know when youve figured out your situation as to route, cost, ect.
03-10-2006, 08:21 AM
i'm trying to geta few heads together in a rental car. were you going to go to bonnaroo too? two of the heads in our caravan aren't going to roo after wakarusa. if you've got an extra car you're more than welcome to caravan with us.
if you are going to bonnaroo would you want to consider hopping into the rental car? i'd need some cash to cover the cost of the rental for the time you're in it.
03-10-2006, 10:25 AM
Hey, I wasn't planning on goin to roo because of the cost. Maybe if I tried to sneak in to roo, but ive never been so i dont know how easy it is. But id be interested in maybe going with the heads only going to waka.
Where are you coming from?
Albany would be kinda on the way, but i cant really make plans until i get a car this weekend. Im going to try and make the waka journey the most cost efficient i can. Car pooling would definitly help.
03-10-2006, 11:57 AM
not sure how much luck you'd have sneaking in, but I'm not saying that it can't be done. good luck to you. roo is effing huge anyways so I say stick it to the man if you can.
i'm from North Jersey, about 45 minutes from the GWB and 20 minutes from the NY thruway.
I think i'm meeting up with montgomeryburns in PA before we go, and Sean S might come along with us too. we're renting a car and it looks like it's gonna be about 600 bucks to split up amongst whomever is in the car. the only thing is that montgomeryburns and his girl friend are only going as far as waka. after that either i'm stuck with the bill for the rental car or i need to find someone to pick up the remainder of the tab. all part of the journey though.
03-10-2006, 05:14 PM
How are montgomery etc. getting back home if you take the rental car to roo? Would yoiu be getting another car in kansas? 600 dollars is pretty cheap, somthing i will def think about.
Hopefully i can buy a reliable car this weekend. Im looking for a station wagon or a van with low miles on it. If I plan on taking that to waka, itll change my plans a little bit, but i will still be looking for passengers.
Has anyone volunteered at waka or roo? Is it worth it, do you miss alot of music? When do you get paid?
Man I cant wait for my tax return so i can buy a ticket.[/quote]
03-10-2006, 05:23 PM
I'm headed to cali bro
03-10-2006, 05:24 PM
volunteers.... dont get paid.
waka volunteering is awsome
03-10-2006, 05:40 PM
Volunteering is already filled at waka this year.
Im considering going to bonaroo now, since ill already be out there, but lets just see how much money i can scrounge. haha
03-10-2006, 06:10 PM
i went to the bonnaroo forum, and there's a lot of multifesting going on this year.
i'll keep you posted umphreeker.
03-10-2006, 11:36 PM
music + camping = :)

03-11-2006, 04:04 PM
03-11-2006, 05:02 PM
montgomeryburns, are you from philly? im going down there for ratdog in a couple weeks - will you be there?
03-11-2006, 05:17 PM
at the facotry? I'll be there....
03-11-2006, 09:06 PM
Hey im pretty drunk and ripped right now.
I like this forum.
Hey I just got a mini van and i think im drivin to waka.
Ive been thinkin and if i can raise enough money ill buy a ticket to roo too.
I dont know i might be thinkin crazy cuz i dont have much money but i think it could be done. I might be thinkin about hitting up umphreys in knoxville, tn at the sunsphere on the way to waka on the 8th.
and hell ya northeasterners can rage it the hardest
03-12-2006, 08:09 AM
:arrow: word! 8)
03-13-2006, 09:41 AM
Hey i was talking to you guys in another thread about rides and stuff... Keep me posted man i could use a ride at least from Maine to Wakarusa and i can pitch in on everything...
03-13-2006, 11:55 AM
Awesome! It sounds like we could have people come down from Maine, meet in upstate NY, and then meet in Philly and continue down to Kansas.
Umphreeker, are you bringing people to waka? You're still undecided about Roo? You might be able to help me and montgomeryburns out. If you got that minivan we'd pitch in on gas and oil changes, beer and titty bars, and beer.
03-13-2006, 02:11 PM
Id love to help, I have a 7 seater. Me and my friend are seriously considering roo aswell as wakarusa. This other guy replied to me too from maine wanting a ride. let me now how i can help, I have 3 or 4 spots left.
03-13-2006, 02:36 PM
YEA!!! I sent you a PM with all the details me and monty have been working out up until now.
would you be able to leave early? i think monty is volunteering and I hear there will be lots to do in Lawrencville up till the show. we'll get a good camping spot if we leave around the 5th.
03-13-2006, 05:07 PM
I will keep you posted, I need to hear back from a friend to see if he wants to go. But I think there will be room.
Where is everybody located?
03-13-2006, 09:38 PM
I'm from north Jersey. About 20 minutes from where 287 N becomes the NY Thruway.
montgomeryburns is from Philly.
03-14-2006, 09:43 AM
Is there anymore room in this caravan for like at least 1 more person? This looks like such a good fest. Monty, what part of Philly you from? I'm from Newark, DE like an hour outside of philly. I plan on goin to the Ratdog show too, so maybe we could meet up or something and figure out some more ****. I'll help the drivin, the gas, the beer, oil, whatever else might need paying for. I'm not sure if I'm gonna have the money to get to roo, but hopefully I will. If I can't get to roo I might be able to get a ride home from waka from some people that live around this way. I kinda had a falling out wit them so they won't give me a ride there and back.
If anyone else can help a fellow head from DE let me know. e-mail me at email@example.com
03-14-2006, 10:00 AM
Also know that we are going down from Binghamton and taking the fast route... can't be stopping off in Knoxville (although we used to live there) or the ozarks, just don't have the time. We gotta be there the day before for volunteer duty, but would love to caravan, and might have a seat open. I have talked to a couple of peeps about it, but don't know from anyone for sure.
03-14-2006, 02:14 PM
i do have a van going to wakarusa>bonnaroo and id love to take people if theres room.
HOWEVER i hope you can understand, my friends will have first dibs on seats over strangers.
I know I will have some seats open, but Im not going to promise any number right now.
I wont have too many friends going, but i will find out soon so i can help you guys plan. I will reply again shortly, but thinking of a plan B would be a good idea.
03-14-2006, 10:18 PM
03-14-2006, 11:32 PM
let the bidding begin :lol:
03-15-2006, 07:46 AM
I drive a Hyundai Elantra GT. Not exactly a road tripping vehicle but I did bring it to Roo last year. I got into a fender bender a few weeks ago, other guys fault, and I'm waiting for his insurance to mail me the damn check so I can get my car fixed and both headlights working.
Hypothetically, I'd like to fix my car, bring it to a dealer and get a new car. I'd like a truck or a dodge magnum. Anyways, just to add a little hope to the mix, once I get a new car I'll let everyone know how much room I have. montgomeryburns and his girl have a seat in there once it all happens. After that me and umphreeker can meet up and pick some heads up on the way down to KS.
I'll let you know what's going on as it unfolds.
03-15-2006, 08:17 AM
awsome :!: I guess the car was totalled pretty bad? Good luck with the insurance company, they're always trying to slip through those cracks. But definatley keep me posted. This gets better and better each day. take care
03-15-2006, 09:42 AM
No, the car wasn't totalled. The other guys car was a lot worse. It's just that i live in ****in Jersey :evil: . North Jersey at that :twisted: . These hills get all snow covered and slippery in the winter.
Like I said, I'll keep you posted.
03-15-2006, 05:25 PM
damn, im away for a few days and looks like the wheels are turning on some killer stuff! id love to take part. umphreeker, if you have room im in... no problem throwing down on tolls, rolls, gas, grass, cheer, and beer. june is deffinately going to be interesting....
03-16-2006, 06:11 AM
whoever doesnt make the final cut for umphreekers ride of fame, I'm sure there will be a large caravan of people from our area making a caravan out of this trip. I wouldnt worry too much yet :lol: :lol:
03-16-2006, 10:30 AM
I'm from around Monty's way so I was hopin to hop in that caravan with him, but if **** fails there, I'd like to try to hop in this caravan here. The only problem is that I'm not sure about Roo, I might not have the loot. Money is a little frail for me right now. hopefully **** turns around though.
If my money issue continues, is anyone planning on coming back near Philly or north DE after Waka?
Monty keep me posted on what you're gonna do, your caravan is definately more convenient. :shock:
03-16-2006, 11:56 AM
which night are yous going to see ratdog?
03-16-2006, 12:39 PM
I'm goin to Ratdog on the 25 this month. It's the saturday show.
03-16-2006, 01:00 PM
you and monty are going to that one, right? i'm thinking about heading down to a.c. friday night and then going over to philly for the show saturday night.
03-16-2006, 01:04 PM
Well I know that myself and a friend are going, but I don't know what night monty's going. I'm still trying to acquire that info. but if you're trying go to the show we should try to get up wit each other while we're there. PM me your cell number sometime and i'll giv a call around show time.
03-16-2006, 01:44 PM
sounds good. i'm trying to get some of my friends from south jerz to come out.
03-16-2006, 02:03 PM
03-16-2006, 04:22 PM
I dont have a ticket for any night yet, and I may not get one. I'm getting my car back soon it just got back from the shop, fresh paint job, the thing is awsome. I need to start insurance for it for 6 months since I was traveling; about 700 bones I got to throw down for it, I dont know if I can afford the bobby show. But I may go just to meet you guys if you're going.
03-16-2006, 04:31 PM
that's awesome you got your wheels back but that sucks on the sacrifices. Yea me and allterrain are planning on goin and meetin up. Since you live around there, yea, you should try to meet up wit us.
03-16-2006, 10:25 PM
I have tickets for the 24 and 25th, me and my buddy are making a weekend out of it. I think it would be real cool if some of us could get together that weekend. Anyone no of a descently priced hotel in the city?
03-17-2006, 08:07 AM
I'm tryin to go to the saturday show. I think got like 3 people meetin up there now. I still gotta get ticket though. so hopefully there's still some left. Monty might know of good hotel, hit him up. I'm not gonna have the funds to help on the room but I'll hang out a little bit after the show if you get a room. PM me your cell number and i'll give you a call before the show.
You don't have any extra tickets by any chance do you?
03-17-2006, 08:38 AM
I need to clarify things; I'm not from philly, I spend a lot of time there. My girlfriend lives in plymouth meeting, about 25 mintues from the delphia, my house is in west chester, and it takes me anywhere from 35-45 minute ride into center city... if its not rush hour. So hotels in philly? I have no idea, I've stayed at the marriot there once but that was with my parents back in the day. You guys dont have any friends who go to temple? If my girl was going to be in town then I'd invite yall to her house for the weekend, do some camping and have a nice fire out next to the farm. But thats not really an option as it looks now. But **** you guys.... what about Jam on the River????!?!?! Now thats what I'm really excited for? Any of you guys get to one in the past few years? Hopefuly we can do the camping thing that weekend, that would be cool. I know I'll be there, especially if Disco biscuits decide to make an appearance. Although I think last years lineup was one of the best I've been to; to duo, dj logic, rrearth, tdb, brothers past, vince welnick and a bunch more. I dont know, just full of random thoughts at 930am. TGI FRIDAY!
03-17-2006, 08:50 AM
When is Jam on the River?
If any of you guys are 21, there's a beer festival at the Atlantic City Convention center tomorrow and Sunday. http://www.celebrationofthesuds.com. Over 120 different kinds of beer, food, live music, Juggling Suns play on Sunday, a pair of twin playboy playmates, drunk chicks, probably a few local cracked out derelicts, all for the low low price of $25 at the door. Designated driver tickets are five bucks.
Other than that I'm still waiting to hear if some of my friends are down for going to see Bobby next weekend. My friends band is playing at the Grand Framage soon, and they have band practice on Saturday night. I told them this would be good inspiration and almost as good as band practice.
03-17-2006, 11:19 AM
Jam on the River does sound like it's gonna be a good time. Looked like a good set of bands I must say.
I don't think I'm gonna be able to make it to the Bobby show cuz work is ****in me out of some loot right now. like $900, and I might have to quit suddenly. Today might be the day.
03-17-2006, 11:35 AM
**** the man, man!
03-17-2006, 12:20 PM
The only thing about quiting is not making funds while I'm on a quest for occupation. I hate money.
It's all bull****. I gotta find a good skill to make some money on tour. That's my goal. I'm working on it this summer. Either a skill or a sugar momma. ha. :wink:
03-17-2006, 04:01 PM
THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY.
Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone.
Enjoy your drinkin, smokin, trippin, experimenting, and whatever you've got planned for your holiday.

I got a room at the marriot downtown for the Phil shows last month, and thru priceline it was only $65.
That is a hell of a deal for a hotel that nice. They even have new beds and pillows.
03-18-2006, 06:06 PM
I got a room at the marriot downtown for the Phil shows last month I was at the Phil show last month. Where were your seats? That was a great ****in show. Watchtower kicked ass.
I think I'm gonna have the money for the Ratdog show now. so I'm gonna try to get a ticket this week. Some friends might come too.
03-22-2006, 06:29 PM
PHAT! thanks for the advice nugster... Well_Known, im sending you a pm with that cell #
03-22-2006, 08:58 PM
Aw hell yea! Saturday is gonna rock!
03-24-2006, 05:53 PM
Hey heads goin to Ratdog Saturday. I'm not gonna make it cuz I heard Bob's doin meth again and he's been playing like ****. so I'm not really tryin to go. or least not tryin to pay to go. I quit my job friday 2, so now I'm short on funds at the moment.
I know it's gonna be a good show still, but let me know how **** goes.
And it looks like I found a friend that's drivin to and from Waka so I got a ride there. I'll keep in touch if **** changes, but I don't think it will. Thanks for offers and everything else. I'll keep in touch wit every1 and give em the heads on good shows around the area. And I'll call up some folks at Waka to get together and ****.
03-24-2006, 09:47 PM
Good for you, brother. We should try and meet up around Philly or Trenton or Tweeter for any shows that are coming up. We could try to plan something for Waka. Are you going to Roo too?
03-25-2006, 06:05 PM
yea man we'll definately work on some shows around here and some stuff at Waka. I would like to go to Roo, but I don't think my funds are gonna allow me to get there. Unless I get a better job than had makin like $15 an hour. cuz I'm pretty low and I kinda hav somewhat a hard time saving money. especially wit the nice weather rollin' around. hallucinatives are comin round, you know.
Let me know if you hear of any good shows. There's a matisyahu show in D.C. in 2 weeks, but you probably arent tryin to travel that far. he was just in Philly like 2 weeks ago or somethin, so he won't be around for a little bit after DC.
03-26-2006, 02:44 PM
03-26-2006, 03:51 PM
whats the status of the new england->waka->bonnarroo caravan?
03-26-2006, 05:11 PM
I dont know, last I heard umph got a van and is talking to his friends, allterrain got the clearence for vacation, things are coming together. How was ratdog though? I saw a bunch of friends that were headed down there earlier on saturday. Sounded like friday night was awsome.
03-27-2006, 11:15 AM
I found a ride from some1 else goin, so that opens another space.
Yea, how was the Ratdog show? I think one of my friends went saturday, but I haven't talked to him yet.
03-27-2006, 07:18 PM
the boat leaves on the 5th sometime I think. Things are still unsure. But anyhow, Lotus is coming to the Trocadero in Philly, on the 28th of April. Thats should be a great time I'll definatley be there, they're \"moving up\" from the TLA. Lee Perry is playing the World Cafe on 5/23 and Then The New Deal and the blue method are booked so far for saturday Jam on the River, with Dark Star orchestra to play the elctric factory that night too. JOTR usually ends around 10, I bet a lot of folk will be going over their or to one of the many after partays. The breakfast will probably play the kyber or someplace like that who knows, Umelt, Quagmire Swimteam and some other band had the kyber last year I think.
03-27-2006, 11:14 PM
dude I can't wait for JOTR. sounds like the sheeeit!
This whole North Eastern, Yankee (not the baseball team, but, **** yea, yankees rule!) group should try to get together for it.
03-28-2006, 11:53 AM
JOTR is lookin groovy. think there's gonna b any more bands? it's still kinda early, so my assumption is yea. But i'd have to cut out early on saturday night. Gotta c Darkstar. I haven't seen a real show from them yet. I saw em at the Vibes last year and they only played a tribute set to Jerry. That was a good show tho, played wit Keller (scarlet begonias, fire on the mountain, and eyes of the world(it was ****ing sweet)) and like 10 people that had played wit Jerry in his time. Did anybody else c that ****?

I was there for that show... it was mad fun 'cept for the rain. It was mostly calm weather during that set, but I was disappointed for one reason = Bobby played lots of Jerry tunes the night before, and I was stuck in traffic on the way in, so we missed it. Then the Jerry tribute set couldn't repeat those songs, so we were stuck with traditional songs, etc. It just didn't live up to the hype.
04-02-2006, 02:13 PM
that was a sick set, i remember i walking around sweating my f'ing balls off the whole time.... vibes is sick, im glad to live 5 minutes away.
04-02-2006, 08:21 PM
[/quote]Bobby played lots of Jerry tunes the night before, and I was stuck in traffic on the way in, so we missed it.
Damn that sucks you missed Bob. That was a great set 2. The rain kinda worked out cuz I was thinkin it was hott as ****, then it started to rain. And the thunder and lighting seemed to be on beat. It only sucked after the set cuz it was cold, wet, and dark.
There's a small festival in May called the Dancing WU LI festival in Morrisville, PA. it's like May 19 & 20 I think. Not sure. Keller, Disco Biscuits(?), Perpetual Groove(?), some other bands I can't remember and some I'm not familiar with are playin. Thinkin bout checkin it out on the day Keller's playin. I missed him when he was in Baltimore a few months ago.
04-04-2006, 04:15 PM
sorry for not replying forever guys
Most my friends are not down with going to wakarusa and bonnaroo, I still really want to go to both.
So I have rooom in my van still, let me know what your plans are.
But I need to make sure i have enough money for the trip.
04-04-2006, 06:48 PM
I think I may be going with allterrain. I'm not too sure yet.
04-04-2006, 07:25 PM
i'm still looking for a ride from waka to bonnaroo, and even possibly for a ride from chicago to waka, willing to pay my way and have some fun, anyone got anything?
04-05-2006, 08:46 PM
Hey guys just dropping a line again wondering if you have anything open.... Im goin NewEngland>Waka>Bonna>New England let me know if you can help with any leg... Plenty of cash to pay my share and i dont smell bad...
04-05-2006, 09:02 PM
check out the new thread about people coming from the north east. if your coming from main we should meet at the ny/nj border and from there we have to go to philly. we don't HAVE to go to philly. if anyone wants to keep going go ahead, but I have to stop in philly to get montyburns.
check out the thread: North Eastern Wakarusians. If you all give me your info: needs a ride; has a seat; coming from ___; i'll put a spread sheet together and we can fill in the blanks.
