Hello all, Me again!!

PLEASE Can people share their views. Can you rate in general percentages how important the journey to a festival is relative to the festival itself and then back again in a VW Van.

Enjoyment/Importance levels.

Me- Journey there (Hate it) 5% imporant to my leisure experience
VW Festival (Quite nice) 30% important to me leisure experience
Journey back (Really enjoyable, I even look at nature out of the window and think its ok) 65% important

Please share;)

20% there
70% festival
10% back

My current bus Der Nana Wagen is much more pleasant to drive that the early bay I had so the 10% isn't the buses fault it's more the downer of leaving an event.

80% fear and trepidation on the way
100% relief on arrival
80% expectation of disaster on the way home reducing exponentially with the distance travelled.

Nowt wrong with having 260% of anything.. :D

Hey guys thanks for these. Anyone else want to comment?

The reason for this question is to see if the journey either there or back has any real
significance to the experience...or if its the festy thats the main interest or that being
at the festival has similar significance to being in the bus on-the-road :lol:

...just to illaberate ? more

I'm going somewhere to camp...in the camper, the fact its mobile is just the nature of having a 'mobile' home

while the journey can be great fun i'm only doing it to get to my destination, so if i could, just appear there....in the bus....then i would (well...2 miles up the road ideally, so I can still enjoy the drive into the show 8)
