This past weekend, me, my girlfriend, and my really good friend Cassie packed up Shannas suv and headed south for the Florida Country Superfest. We made the trip in good time, not a lot of traffic no car accidents and the road construction was minimal.

The country Superfest, in case you did not follow the link, is, a weekend long concert. The concert is full of country music superstars and it is held outdoors. When we arrived i Jacksonville for the event so did the rain. A lot of rain. We were in town early so we crossed our fingers and headed to the hotel. The hotel had been booked in advance, but we decided to wait in line at the hotel front desk and check in. The line for check in was really long, we waited for a long time in that line with all the other concert goers. A few of our fellow fans with reservations made in advance, like us, decided to go on to the concert site and simply check in late that night or early the next morning. Me, Shanna and Cassie had bags in hand and waited in the line. When we got to the desk, the receptionist let Shanna know that the travel broker she used did not book the hotel until that morning so in spite of the confirmation number Shanna held in her I phone we were without a hotel room for the night. Shanna called the broker and Me her and Cassie hit the road to the concert which, we were sure we were now missing. While on the way to the concert Shanna called the broker and the agency made arrangements to have us upgraded. Cassie got online and made arrangements for better tickets at the stadium.  (mind you Cassie hooked us up with posh tickets!!)  With an upgraded hotel we got to the stadium. Aren’t Cassie and Shanna awesome? The answer is yes.

Outside the stadium everyone stood in the rain tickets in hand, waiting for the rain and thunder to pass. We did not miss a thing. The thunder passed the rain stayed and we watched some awesome music. Eric Church stole the show that first night. After the concert was over we retreated to the upgraded hotel spent the night. We got to the concert early the next day and watched the rest of the line up.

So the weekend was rocky but amazing! I loved the music, the accommodations and the company! Those two are good people.

peace
