- Plan a Designated Driver, especially if you have to leave on the Monday. As designated driver you commit to getting at least 8 hours of sleep before departure. Prepare for police roadblocks on your way out.
- Schedule a departure time – this makes it much easier to follow through with Step 1!
- Designate a co-pilot who’ll stay awake with the driver. As co-pilot it’s your job to engage your driver and watch for signs of sleepiness behind the wheel.
- Consider local hotel/motel/camping options if you have a long drive home ahead of you. If you plan on staying in Nelson, Salmo, or Castlegar be sure to book ahead. Places are usually booked out in advance to the festival.
We love you all, and encourage you to take these steps when leaving our festival, or any festival. See you on the dancefloor
