pretty much the worst thing ever?
Anybody had any good experiences or tactics that's softened the blow?
I remember after that we were sitting at Taunton station waiting for various trains and all up and down the platform folks were subconsciously swaying to the clanking of the trains on the tracks. It was a noise-heavy weekend that one (best one I've been to too).
...and travel home at the end of the last night (or away to a nearby cheaply-booked hotel if you're a long way from home).
Works for me. You don't get that thing where everyone is packing up and looking depressed. Plus if it's a big fest you beat a lot of the traffic. :)
Then again, I do live only 15 miles from the Glasto site, which is probably why I got into this habit.
my tactic is 'get someone else to drive'
although I'm contemplating getting the coach to and from glastonbury next year. Never done it, but I'm expecting it to be horrendous
Go party Sunday night, watch the sun rise from the stone circle, then pass out on the bus back.
You skip the crowds without having to be frugal on Sunday and the coach journey passes in seconds because you're sparked out...
You're going to feel like crap no matter when you do it, so might as well get home and crash out as soon as you can.
Fresh orange juice ftw.
Sleep all the way.
Stop at Burger King.
if you're driving: panic.
I was leaving the site in my friends bus and we picked up a hitcher who became my girlfriend for a few months.
stay up all night drinking and leave at 6am. i tried this the last time i went to Reading for the whole weekend (2007 i think) and the walk to the train station took AN HOUR. a terrible hour that felt a bit like torture.
It's the only possible way.
