Catching up and getting ready for 11Fest in Athens.

Does anyone else smell that smelly smell in the air? That putrid smell of mud and beer? That particular mixture of mud and beer that can only mean one thing?

Fest season at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio!

11Fest, one of the fastest growing and rowdiest music festivals in the midwest, is just around the corner, only a week away. And there ain’t no mountain high or valley low that could keep me from getting drunk at 11Fest, this year featuring Kendrick Lamar and Steve Aoki. The OG greeZers at CreMedia will be filming the whole thing and I’ll be filming them filming it for some behind-the-steeze for a little change of pace. Bus from Denver to Columbus Wednesday –> Cbus to Athens Thursday –> 11Fest on Saturday.

Going back to Ohio University is a guaranteed good time and there’s no better time of year to visit than spring when the fests are in full swing and the greens are getting green again. Besides 11Fest, I’ll also be sticking around for Palmer Fest which should be equally riotous (hopefully not literally). I’m looking forward to seeing some of the old crew and maybe breaking into their old house to see if the time capsule we left behind last year is still untouched. But it might be too soon for that.

It’s not too late for another final update from SXSW, though. I mentioned before that I got to meet up with Connor Meakin from HootSuite and we worked together on a video of the train ride from LA to Austin. Besides the equipment I usually have, Connor had two extra GoPros for us to put up around the train!

I’m still looking through all of the stuff I got from Yosemite National Park and will probably put together something more significant in the summer, but for now, here are a few more pictures from my day in Yosemite. See you in Athens!
