The first thing that surprised me as we made our way down to Bonnaroo today was the lack of traffic on I-24. It appears as if opening the gates earlier had the desired effect. Some of the campers said even the way the staff got them into the campgrounds was much more organized this year as well.
It is a beautiful day today. Since last year was insanely hot, anything is an improvement. In fact, some of the folks we talked to actually complained about being unprepared for the cold overnight.
The layout of Bonnaroo hasn't changed much. The stages are pretty much where they always are. There are several food areas, the fountain and the Ferris wheel. The new shade structures are all over the place. There are also new trees, but they probably won't be providing much shade for a couple of years.
More in just a little while! I have to put some stories on the air!!
