A Pirate’s Exile: Bonnaroovian Adventures

San Pedro, CA, July 13th, 2014-I left North Carolina on a Greyhound from Wilmington headed towards Roanoke, VA. It was a 14 hour ride but it was overnight and really not that bad, to be honest.

I’d never been to a festival before and was a little anxious to get started. I was also a little bit nervous. I […]
