    My musicfest setup. I'm not the camping type, but I tend to imbibe a bit. I just need a place to crash when I can't stay up any longer.

    Fast enough for what? It's music, not a foot race. There is no finish line and there is no end. Might as well take it easy and enjoy the ride. There's no hurry.
