    So where did you tailgate on Saturday?

    I am in C4 and wondered where all of the grass lot people ended up. Were the bars busier? Did you just park wherever you could and walk to the lots? Did students just walk from their housing and join someone who had a spot? It seemed like there were more people carrying coolers and grills into the lots than usual but that is just my microcosmic opinion.

    Re: So where did you tailgate on Saturday?

    We ended up in C2, because we have a G7 pass, so we were literally at the bottom of the steps to Hilton. It was a fun time.

    We were wondering the same thing, too. One of our buddies who had come down from Campustown said there were a lot of people just throwing parties and stuff like that. I know we'd have gone wild with it in school if they had ever closed the grass lots.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Luckily my buddy has his grandpa's C5 pass. It was funny though, minus the RV's there was nobody else we could see when we rolled in around 10.

    Vet Med parking lot...although that was filled up by around 1pm. They sure didn't plan things very well. There were about 15 bathrooms in the entire vet med lot and if you were parked in the back like we were, it was a 10 minute walk to get to them.

    We were one of the few groups that got into G7 before they closed it off. It seemed like we had about 1 bathroom per person in the lot!

    We also got into G7 right before it closed. Muddy, but we had a great time. Also watched some- I assume drunk- guy drive his car down into the ditch by the Haunted Forest as we were leaving.
