What has or is it going to take to make you do to go to RF 16 or any RF in the past , if it is air miles , 18 hour stopovers , picking strawberries or selling your best friends hamster, there has to be some crazy stories out there. Spent a night in CHP asleep? on baggage carousel that started and stopped every half hour waiting for a bag with my tent that was stuck in Frankfurt after my my direct flight got cancelled, it must get worse than this?
I once quit my job in order to get to the festival (2004). Had that job for about 4 years and my new boss was treating everyone like shit saying it was impossible for me to have that week off. So I quit.
Couple of years back, I booked my flights for one day too early, so I sat on camping chair for one night in the queing area and drank beer alone. For an older guy like me that was not the ideal way to start the festival (an hour or two aspleep that night). Also in 2001 we missed our flight back to Finland and had to sleep overnight in CPH airport. So we drank beer. A friend of mine had to go to work straight from the airport. He was selling household equipment. Don´t think he made very many deals that day (he looked "a bit exhausted").
