Re: I love fold-up lawn chairs !
I did take a folding chair to the Peach stage, I do confess. It was only during the day though and I sat in the back. My state of being at the particular point in time was kinda like Weekend at Bernies and I propped myself up in the chair while doing a good job of imitating Hunter S Thompson. Problem was my friends were supplying me with liquids, ie, beer, so I didnt have to move much. You know the bad part of this story is that I knew better cuz I live in Florida, though maybe not at the moment. I ended up with a horrific sunburn. The good news was that henna tat was burned into me for several days after it wore off. Perhaps this was judgment on me from the folding chair god for not tying my chair with someone elses chair and having one person guard them for five hours while shooing everyone away from my chair. Things to ponder and reflect on in these deep moments.
There's not a thing wrong with what you did . I did it myself 2 years ago when Railroad Earth was on the Peach Stage . There weren't very many folks taking in the show , so I sat close enough to smell those little flowers in front of the stage . Later that day , I folded the chair up , and left it by a trash can for someone else to snag . The thing was like $7.00 so no harm done . I turn into a nomad when the big boys start up .
The lawn chair Gestapo tends to show up before Mule takes the stage . Forgive me for being snobbish , but they're easy to spot . The gear other than the chairs they bring along is a dead give away . They post up , and act like turbo buttholes to anyone who "threatens" their territory . I've seen several examples of their behavior where I acutually felt embarrassed for them .
Let's make a human wall in front of them this year , and let people walk back and forth in front of them . It'll be beautiful !
