Another short trip to LA…. This time, both of the boys were in our van today and Emma Jones. (She and I never wanted Rachel there). Miss Pope joined Rachel.
We heard on the After show last night that the boys were staying at the same hotel as we did. NICE! We didn’t see them tho…. anyway…. time to go to LA…. We arrived pretty early…. Rachel dropped Emma off and went to her own hotel/motel/hostel. We were staying in the Wilshire Plaza hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. We checked in. The guy from the reception lied to the ladies. He told them that they had the best room with the best view. They were looking at Downtown LA. I believe that Ozzy & I had a better room. We had a view at the Hollywood Hills.
Ted was staying in the same hotel in Solana beach as we were.
On Twitter, Mike wrote he was looking for The hotel. Rachel told him how to get there. We had breakfast, Emma, Emma & Rachel joined us, They didn’t have breakfast, but they were sitting next to us. During breakfast, Mike, Ted and Kristy showed up…. Good morning! Thought it was “Dinner with Skinner“, now we have “Breakfast with Skinner“ as well. Mike and I had a chat about the movies we had seen in the plane. We both agreed that “the Hangover” was very funny.
On twitter I asked Mike what to do: Rock Werchter or Newquay? Rock werchter was on July 3rd. Wireless was on July the 4th. I already booked everything for Wireless. Might have been a struggle to get from Belgium to England in time for both festivals. but I would have tried, but Mike’s answer on Twitter made me change my mind.
Ozzy & I went to Dusseldorf early in the morning to go to a camping and set up the tent. We found the Strandbad Nord Unterbach camping, we set up the tent and it started raining a lot. We still had to bring in our sleeping stuff. Oh well after a few minutes it was dry again and the sun was shining. So we could finish it. In the meanwhile, I had contact with Laurence, She let me know that Laurie wouldn’t join us as she didn’t feel too well, Laurence was coming alone. At about 1 pm we arrived at the festival, and I text Laurence to let her know where we were.
