Re: ~* Camden 2012 *~

same here, definitely doing night 2, not sure about night 1 yet. I hate that it's always mid-week...Honestly I just want lawn seats, I think the sound is much better out there for some reason. Wondering if I should even go through WH for my tix.

Re: ~* Camden 2012 *~

Will be doing both nights. Since we're older, it'll be pavillion. I don't like being crammed in with the GA Pit (drunk pushy people) and I don't like the lawn (drunks who want to shove and start fights)

You can see the venue from across the river. It's right over the Ben Franklin Bridge.

It's right over the bridge. Yes there's public transportation there, very easy to get to. Philly is great however, I'd suggest staying on the Jersey side if you're trying to save money. I live about 15 minutes from Philly in Jersey and about 10 mins from Camden. Hotels over here are way cheaper and you be almost as close as if you were in Philly.

haha gotcha...funny cause I feel like when I'm in the house I'm stuck next to whoever I'm next to and that's it. At least on the lawn I can walk around and find a spot that best suits me....

I wouldn't suggest walking around there, however there is a hotel near where I'm at right off the highway it's in West Deptford looks like it's $90 a night and it's a decent hotel.

http://www.booking.com/hotel/us/best...bc7a7f7b7bfaX1

Just saying because I know that they won't start jacking up prices but I'm pretty sure you can bet on Philly and Cherry Hill doing that.

How many people do you have?

True. Although for the 10 years I have been going, I have been lucky. The people around me have been good. Maybe that means I'm the ass they are complaining about.

Re: ~* Camden 2012 *~

Put in a request for night two lawn.

I've been to Camden once in 03, twice in 05, twice in 06, twice in 07, once in 08, and once in 2010... So... 9 times.

It's a standard amphitheater with nothing special about it... although you get a nice view of Philly off to the the left at night. It's near the river so there's always a little breeze as well. Just hopefully the douchey Philly sports fans shut up or don't show up.

no problem, I'll post the cab rate on here later tonight...honestly shouldn't be too much if you're splitting it 4 ways. And as far as the public transportation goes, during a week night I'm pretty sure it stops running at like 10 or 11...I could be wrong though, maybe someone else will chime in on this...

Re: ~* Camden 2012 *~

I prefer the PATCO from Philly to "Broadway" and the Riverwalk to the venue. Usually walk back to "Broadway" because the Riverwalk gets stuck in traffic. The timetabel during the week shows it going all night. http://www.ridepatco.org/pdf/Patco_Timetable.pdf

Nice! For some reason I thought it stopped around 11 or earlier...maybe that's the buses?
