ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 17, 2014 07:51PM
We plan on being there. Camping at Richardsons Grove State Park for the week from Tuesday to Tuesday.

Staying the extra day to avoid the huge traffic jam in Willits on Monday, took almost 1 1/2 hours last year to get thru that mess.

We will be staying at Campsite #161 so come by and say hello if in the area.

I don't think they will be selling out this year, especially since they have been allotted an additional 500 tickets.

Are you bringing a soccer ball?

I remember in the 90's, Cobi Jones with dreads, was there at least twice, shirt-less and bare-footed,kicking the ball around with some in the crowd. Of course, at that time, nobody knew who he was. He was from the Westlake area which is right near Simi Valley where I live.

Wow, that takes the cake. My first year going was 1991 when they switched to two days and made it worthwhile to drive
all the way from Southern Cal. We stopped going in 2004 and then came back last year when they started back at French's Camp.

I think I recall first meeting you back in the 90's at a pre-festival meet and greet on the hill at the back of the venue.
Remember, there was some guy with a big white flag to mark the meeting spot...that was a time!
Of course, I can't recall his name, maybe that was you?
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 19, 2014 07:21PM
First ROTR was 1989, the summer before my senior year in high school. Good times. I do believe Michelle and Teresa were there also (?) although we would have never known at that time...

I can't claim continuity in my attendance due to it getting too big and my life responsibilities, but I just might make it next year!

Have fun ya'll!

Peace
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 20, 2014 12:35AM
Yes, we have met before. Many many years ago up on the hill.
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 20, 2014 04:35PM
are we meeting on the hill at 420??? tell me what day(s) and I'll bring the sharpies.Someone needs to bring nametags...
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 20, 2014 07:31PM
to all you boardies heading to ROTR, after you get back can u PLEASE post comments and photos of the onsite camping situation there. I went 14yrs straight all the way until it moved to Benbow and haven't been back since. I was highly considering going this year, but I now have a family and remember it being very rough and rugged. If I were to go I would do the Thursday entry hoping it would make things somewhat easier. Any info I get this year will help me determine if I go next year. I've missed this festival so much and now that its back home I want to return to the fest that started it all for me. So please post your observations and experience. Thanks everyone.
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 20, 2014 07:49PM
My impression of the onsite camping last year leaned toward a 'mad max' type hellscape, but i will try and get some photos and video of the camping area this year.

Love that reggae!
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call

You must've seen Joe Higgs then! Wish I could've made that trip, but was strandred in the desert.

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...

Here's a couple pics I took on my way home last week... River looked a little low but there were some nice shady pools still.
See you all really Soon~> Safe Travels thumbs up

Hey juanlove, do you have any photos of water in the river? Is the river even running (is there water at all)? Neither of the photos above show the water.

Any help would be great.

Thank you.
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call

Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call

Westafari, my wife just came back from camping at Richardson Grove and there were still swim holes but definitely a lot more algae than when we were there earlier this month.

Hope this helps.

Peace
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 22, 2014 08:47PM
Yes! Forgot about that! So long ago it seems....

I couldn't really get a shot of the water from where I was standing.It Looked pretty low but it was flowing slowly.it also looked like the usual shady pools that form at the bends where pretty much intact. I'm headed back that way in the next day or 2... I'll try and get a better shot of the River for yah~>thumbs up

You beat me by 1 year J-72! My first ROTR was the following year (1990?) & also was still one day long.

I remember Mighty Diamonds headlining, Mutabaruka scolding the crowd, and Lucky Dube breaking out on the scene and being the highlight of the day!!

Really looking forward to Friday night this year, with Michael Rose & Gentleman back-to-back!

Bless Up!

I was there in 88 and 89. Still have the ticket stubs. I have seen a few concerts back in the day at French's Camp including Santana & Jerry Garcia. Clan Dyken killed it opening for JGB one year. Good times.

Cool. Thanks guys. Been going since 1997. I've never been to reggae when the water is this low. Kinda scary. Hope no one gets sick.
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 23, 2014 08:34PM
I *think* I'm going. Last year was my first year. Arrived on Thursday afternoon and was surprised at how many people were all ready there.
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 23, 2014 08:57PM
Blessed Coast Sound will be there with Bobby Hustle & Jahdan Blakkamoore as well as backing Mega Banton all on Thursday night as well as some sets through out the weekend!! We will have some cool new merch so come find us to get yours!!
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 24, 2014 10:09PM
I'm going to ROTR for sure this year. Had such a good time at SNWMF, that I'm having reggae festival withdrawals...next week can't get here soon enough!
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 26, 2014 10:38PM
I'll be back with westafari and the eye in the sky! It's been a few years since I've been ball on the Eel! Even longer since I've been on this forum. Can't believe my password worked!

cate1012 …..i have a feeling I cybernetically know u. we have been talking thru Matt on FB. I will chase down the Eye and I will leave a post-it on a string with the key to harness the energy tha be electricity. that goes for u to westafari!
Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call
July 27, 2014 04:55PM
I have been thinking we need to address this "what's my name?" michael rose thing. I am going to have a sign that says "It's Michael Rose"….so when he yells "what's my name?" I can just hold up the sign.

Or, you can just hold up a large red paper "Rose".

Re: ROTR 2014 Roll Call

Nice Jason. I like that idea.

Also, maybe when M.Rose starts doing his bird call of "KAAAAAAAAAAA" like he has been doing lately, you can hold up another sign and tell him to "shut the f. up". No one likes his stupid bird calls. I especially hate it.

See you and Catrina soon.
