Our flight was delayed leaving Oakland and didn't get into L.A. until 8:30'ish. We then picked up the two British exchange students (Nick and Richie) who were hitching a ride with us. We drove all night (I slept mostly) until we arrived at the fairgrounds.

We dropped off out two ride-mates at the camp grounds and were amazed to see how long the line was. It was 2:00 AM and the line waiting to get into the camp grounds must have been a quarter mile long as everyone was searched before gaining entry.
