Post Wow
Most of you fine folks know our situation and are aware that we are not making it to Wanee festival this year. We have decided to stay a little closer to home, especially after the cost of our bad planning to attend the Sunshine Festival and then having to sell tickets and rooms and so forth at the last minute. Lots of things going on back home with family and health. We are taking our music a little closer to home so that if I have to travel alone, it won't be as long a drive.

That being said, since 2010, this forum has been the one thing that has made Wanee a "much anticipated event" because of the discussions, exchange of ideas and information, and just good fun and shenagary. This year it appears the fireworks have started early and the gloves have come off. Sad to see it. I was hoping to stick around and if nothing else, enjoy the camaraderie of friends, family and newcomers to this ever growing community.

I can be a bit of an outspoken individual myself, but usually when infused with enough whisky to kill a normal human. I can only hope that egos and head games will temper with time, and this forum will return back to the platform that it was designed to be.

Hope to see each and everyone of you some time in the near or distant future. Stay in touch. Lynn/GMC

I agree with you, gma, it went "south" fast.

There is a reason we call this BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

Please, let civil heads prevail. If you must troll, troll someplace else.

PLEASE?

Gov'nah? DemiGod? DD? Knock some sense into 'em!

Figuratively, of course!

We have heard complaints about the line-ups in past before, but that didn't change anything with the BOS/SOS. We still had great times at the meet & greets! IMO we should have Skynyrd years ago! Like I have said in past ABB, GM, DTB, TTB the rest is bonus. :D 8-)

Yeah. I dont like Skinyard, but I try to keep comments witty and light. Some people on here got mad last night. I hope I wasnt responsible for inciting a riot, but it wouldnt be the first time... Or the last! I look forward to kicking back an extra cold one while they play. Hopefully, someone will join me back at camp for that. Like the famous Mr. King said "Can't we all just get along?" Not Martin Luther, I mean Rodney.

I hear ya GmacrackLynn,

this is "part" of why I feel like I veered away from this site.( I also blame Facecrack)
I am truly open to all diversity and realize that this community has
now grown into a small city.... and in the city you will find it all.

after awhile,negativity can positively run some the other way.
I try to remember it takes every kind of people and all the opinions that come with it.

yep,,always amazes me how people can blast other for their taste in music when music is as diverse and available for all tastes.
so what Johnny doesn't like Panic. right ?
so what I don't like Johnny's band. right ?

some just gonna be negative.
all we can do is spin the positive
and hope to meet in the van.....in peace.....down by the river.

Waneeeeeeee will be just fine !!
Can't wait.


pee ess...... I ache that you and Jer will not be there !! love ya's

I am a classic rock fan who found Wanee in 2011 because of Robert Plant and Steve Miller. Now I am hooked because of what KEEB said. The family and the scene at Wanee is very special.

Thanks, DartDog and Gov'nah, for showing us the way. I agree with DD: if this was JUST ABB, TTB, GM and other family members, I would not hesitate to go. The rest is just icing on the cake.
