What a stellar evening with an awesome group of friends! Thanks so much for our RV hosts who allowed us to hang, snack and drink coffee as we waited for the traffic to die down. A great wind down after a lot of drinkin and dancin!!!
To all my friends and especially Jennifer I am sorry for my stupid drunk jackass comments I made to Jennifer someone I love and care very much about, I embarrassed her, myself and more I'm sure. so a public apology is very much needed so I am sorry.

john... we know you are an amazing person.. no need to apologize..
3 · July 20
Johnny, I wasn't present but I think your apology is genuine and appreciated. Hope everything's ok. Have a good day!
Such a great time with all the peeps new and old :) Was an awesome venue and getting to carouse around and dance and sing with people was fun!! We can all still bust a move for being kinda old ;). Hope everyone was safe getting home. ((Big Hugs)) to Jennifer as it was great to see you with your smiling face ~ take care lovely!!

They opened the gate to parking!! 4pm is the new 5 LOL

Does anybody happen to have an extra beach chair they can lend me today??
2 · July 19
Hi DeeDee.... I do, I will bring it for you :D Anna
Hi Dee Dee I have an extra chair I can bring. :D Anna (I thought I replied to this earlier and now I don't see my post, lol)
If you want to know what you may and may not bring, call their recording at[masked]-6200.
Their paid parking (star/VIP) is sold out, FYI for those planning to pay to park.
1 · July 18
I was there 3 weeks ago for the Kiss/ Def Leppard concert & called, listened to the recording & spoke to someone at 2pm ish & by the time i got @ the gate rules changed again. Could only bring in 1 gal zip lock bag of food & 1 sealed 20oz water bottle, no coolers or even a lunch box size. I had a kid's size back pack they ckd every nook & cranny. :(
Apparently the 'band(s)' have the right to chg what chg the rules.
OK... word on the Tacoma Street is... Some of the Tacoma Wine and Dine gang was dancing in the parking lot of Anthony's At Point Defiance... It is said they were dancing to Steve Miller Band music... Rock N'Me... you know the song where they say...."I went from Phoenix, Arizona All the way to Tacoma"... well anyway they shut the bar down and danced until the car battery died...
Hahaha! Steve Miller would be proud...!! Thank God for battery cables. And cops that look the other way...
The parking lot opens at 4:30pm; gates around 5:30pm.
Your right, I just called. Thought I read that they opened at 2:00
Please post rv location so we don't all call Steve
2 · July 18
Put up a big helium balloon with "we are here" on it :))
0 · July 18
Anjeanette and Cindy are the "rock stars" of the group.. thanks for the heads up... and Gayle.. we will have a balloon.. but in sharpy black written by me, it is going to say all welcome but Gayle..
If anyone wants to join a singer in a smoky room, that smells of wine and cheap perfume show up at the Beak in Enumclaw around 5pm.
I have a booth all day, till 7pm, at the W.A.M. Festival here in Auburn. Would loved to have gone with all of you, otherwise.
You can still make it. The opening band should take up the first hour or so. Then Steve Miller followed by Journey.
Anyone have room in their car
0 · July 13
I still don't know how I'm getting there.... LOL
Dorothy, where do you live? Rebel Red, thought Eddie would be giving you a ride?? I am heading from T-Town

I am taking the shuttle from the Supermall. It usually picks up near the Red Robin.
2 · July 14
Smart idea Charlene...
I've taken the shuttle before, and it's really a good way to go
I would be more than happy to drive. I just need a ticket...
0 · July 15
Anjeanette, Where could I meet you.
0 · July 16
I was thinking of perfunking at the Yela Beak in Enumclaw. Dorothy do u want to meet me before that? I could pick u up in Auburn?
1 · July 17
Ok, What time are you going? Then I could bring all 4 chairs if needed. And food and drinks.
Do you want me to pick u up at the supermall then go to the yella beak? Pick up at 4:30 in front of bed bath and beyond? I've always wanted to say that.
2 · July 17
The gates open at 4?
0 · July 17
Ok. The earlier, the least traffic
Maybe a few balloons when you get in the amphitheater so we know where the group is in case we don't make the pre-party?
Not sure where we will be able to park but Kenan is grabbing a few balloons that we can attach to the party bus. Look for those.
Hello all.... I had a hard time finding people for the 4th of July gathering..... Any updates on where everyone will be sitting? I can't get there til around 5ish. Can't wait....its gonna be fun! Looking forward to meeting everyone! Anna
I honestly can't say where we will be sitting as I have never been there before.
Anna. It's best to get someones phone number.
Anna... just wear a completely fire pink outfit with a purple balloon flying overhead and i will find you.. actually just watch postings if you have a smart phone.. if you do not have a smart phone shoot me a private note and i will send you my phone number..
1 · July 16
I was told to look for the balloon???
Diana, I would work on getting a balloon, I can't gaurantee they will let me through the gate with it, I hear they are pretty strick on what you can bring in.
Forget balloons. I plan to bring a dart kit to pop any I see... Just listen for all my babbling. You will find the gang near by me, unless they all hide from me which is known to happen.
You guys are killing me! This is a simply request...Anna, call me when you get there..253 370-6755. Perps who call me...my phone is tied to Langely.
4 · July 17
Can I call that # too find you guys or just go to beer garden?
Yes Diana, you can call the number to find us...provided my car group finds the group :)
Still got a ticket!!!
I'm seeing some great 80s hair and retro clothes at the GoGos and Scandal concert what are YOU wearing to Journey ? ;)
Anyone else interested in meeting at the Yella Beak in Enumclaw? Down a couple of much cheaper drinks, then drive really fast to the amphitheater before a breathilizer will detect your blood alcohol level?
I'm up for going. I have room in my car if anyone needs a ride from the Graham area.
Hola Cindy.. This site gives a bunch of info.. They say for the RV you must purchase 2vip parking spots.. Have you purchased these..? Whats the price tag..?.. Maybe we can together purchase 2 more next to you to put up some sun canopies. Be a good spot to wait out the traffic leaving as well.. http://www.destination360.com/north-america/us/washington/white-river-amphitheatre..
3 · July 13
We were planning on parking in the general parking lot for free.
1 · July 13
Have you done that in the past..? Trying to get answers out of their office is tough..there's No one home..! Finally found my beach chairs on sale Big[masked] and they recline..with a backpack pouch large and shoulder straps..
2 · July 13
We have never been there but reading the info on the site, it says RV's are welcome just no overnight camping. If a RV parks in the VIP lot they need to pay for 2 spots. I assume we can park in the general lot for free.
I saw that RVs have to park in VIP section and purchase 2 spots....
They won't let you park in general area as that's free for cars only with purchase of tickets... :(
If you’re coming with an RV or some other vehicle, you don’t need to pay any extra for general parking, but you’ll need to purchase two spaces for VIP parking. The way I'm reading this is parking is free in general parking put if we park in VIP we need to pay for 2 spots...
I say we can pitch in for costs if we need to park in VIP area. I would be willing to pay extra to driver
Johnny called and we DO NOT need to park in the VIP, they are going to direct us out in the field somewhere so we can have room for the slide out and awning
Lol! Thanks for the laughs and phone number. I will text you Steve when we get there. Is it Saturday yet?
I don't see anymore groupon specials............45.00 and up on the lawn. Where is everyone going to be sitting?
0 · June 4
The groupon special sold out the 1st day. Most of us will be sitting on the lawn except for those who have reserved seating. I will have a balloon to locate us. Will update close to the event.
3 · June 4
awesome! Thanks Cindy
I will look for balloon never been there before. This will be my first concert in Wa. State. So excited but don't want to be alone.
1 · July 5
No worries Diana....no one is alone as we're all one big family :)
3 · July 5
Thanks Gayle looking forward to meeting all of you!
Looking forward to meeting you, Diana! Good for you for being brave and coming out!!
Update: Johnny B. just called and talked to someone at the White River Amphitheater and they said no BBQ's and NO alcohol outside in the parking lot. So be careful! They will have reservation police monitoring the parking lot for people drinking :-(. You can drink inside the gates but must purchase your alcohol through them.
I was just there on june 29th & never saw any reservation police. There was alot of tailgate drinking going on. Hmmmmm...that was a Kiss & Def Leppard concert!
well i heard that at Kiss Concert all the reservation police were terrified and hiding from Gene Simmons' fire breathing antics....
Bring your booze just cleverly disguise it. Just think prison style.
I saw kiss and def leppard down in Vancouver. One of the best concerts ever. Hoping journey hits it out of the park.
A lot of places are selling Beach Chairs ( which are lower to the ground ).....Big 5, Big Lots, Target are the ones that have them for cheapest. :-)
1 · July 15
I have some low chairs(4), more like 8" then 6". But I may need to take the Shuttle. I hope to bring some picnic items.
Is there a height restriction on chairs?
I read 6" from the ground and the back no higher than your head
I am going to McChord tomorrow and Costco...hopefully I will find the correct chair
On the lawn area, beach chairs are allowed, as long as they’re not more than nine inches high, ensuring that everyone can see the stage. This is copied and pasted from their site.
Couldn't make this one work either darn it! So going w/a friend to get my belly button pierced while she gets a tat...might get another one of those too - anyway have fun all & I'll "for surely" see ya at Gigapalooza III!! :D <3
Captain, My Captain...you need a ride? Red Beemer will be swinging by your dock...if you need a ride
Is there still going to be a balloon?
