So every summer for the last three years I’ve gone to a remotish venue called the Gorge in Washington with my friend Bria and the majority of her family and all their friends (known as a davemmunity). We watch the Dave Matthews Band and opening bands on Fri, Sat, Sun, dance our butts off, lose our voices, get incredible sun tans and some burns and we have lots of loving happy fun. It’s one of the best times I have all year, it’s like a three day holiday! Yesterday I got back from dave 2014 and boy did I love it! Every year dave gets better and better for me :)
For one thing, bria and I are older and and we can enjoy the more adult pleasures of going to events like this and be more and more confident in ourselves and have fun on our own. It’s also nice because unlike the first year I went the age gaps between bria’s cousins and bria and I feel smaller and it’s easier to have fun with andy because we’re all cool college kids and kelly because she’s turning into a cool girl pal. The drug aspect was also pretty enjoyable! I got to experience being high with bria for the first time and it was silly and happy and fun! Also personally I had a great time getting to smoke all three nights and drink a little bit here and there, those things in moderation totally enhance the experience (unlike for those that use no moderation and end up forgetting the experience).
Pretty much dave was wonderful :) Bria and i feel closer after this and It made me feel happy again after the past few weeks of this emotional roller coaster job. I also love Bria’s family and the whole community, I respect them more then they could know and I honestly wish I could hang out with them all the time! What it boils down to is that I’m so damn luck :)
i also snuck my good camera into the venue this year and got some pretty sweet shots of what our group was doing and the venue itself!
