I hope this isn't too controversial an opinion, but for me, Woodstock is part of the landscape, something that happened against all odds a long time ago and can't ever happen again, kind of like the Beatles. Lang's misbegotten effort to make lighting strike twice was doomed from the outset and I'm not at all sorry to see it tanked.

When I looked at the Burning Man website years ago, they warned of dehydration and circumstances and restrictions related to the environment being a true test for couples. Advising awareness, advising choice of informed and ready companion. Otherwise, be some fighting, maybe.

Parq I agree, you can't recreate that no matter how hard you try.
Avatar Thu. 8/15/19 1:50pm still b/p:

Speaking of attempting re-creations: Saw something today about a guy who "ships Irish pubs to every corner of the globe in 40-foot-long containers. And inside those containers are the elements that he has found will make an Irish pub authentic."
Um, no.

a test for sure. then again, in that kind of environment the dynamic between you changes. it has to.

My family stayed for the summer 5 miles south in Swan Lake. Unfortunately, that summer, we left a week before the festival. However we passed the farm several times during the construction of the stage and fences( lotta good they were!). My 14 year old eyes knew that I was missing something VERY big.
