    I came here rather expecting a thread already about this, but I've yet to find one.

    I think this summer will be my first Schwagstock. Has anyone else ever been or plan on going?

    There may be a Schwagstock thread on an older page. A lot of Hipforums folks go there. Go I guarantee that you'll enjoy it. If you liked Wakarusa you'll love Schwagstock.

    You'll love Schwagstock anyway. You'll met tons of absolutely wonderful people. Go join The Schwag message board on their website and start meeting some of the folks that go there.

    Salem cops are notorious for 'profiling" Schwag attendees. They use any excuse however flimsy to stop people,illegally search their cars and arrest them so they can milk them for money. Schwaggers used to stop in Salem for groceries,beer etc until the Salem Gestapo oops I mean police started being *ssholes. As a result many Schwaggers have been boycotting Salem.

    Emminence MO has it figured out. They know if they leave us alone that we'll do our shopping there instead of Salem. They know that they make more money from tourist (read Schwagger) dollars than from fines.

    Schwagstock is a great festival, lots of kind people, beautiful campground, good music, some of the best vendors I've seen even after being to bigger festivals. It's like a home away from home.

    On a darker note. . .

    Yes, the Salem cops are bad but they aren't as bad as some people make them out to be. I've been to about 12 festivals at Zoe, each time going thru Salem and I've only been pulled over once. I had a burnt out tail-lamp, it's shitty but if you wait to buy your goodies once you get there then you have nothing to worry about. People who drive through Salem with stuff on them are just plain stupid. I didn't have anything to be all nervous or scared about when they pulled me over because me and my friends all agreed to just get our goodies there. Yes, it sucks being profiled, but if you've been to Zoe before and you know about Salem and still go thru it and get caught, it's kind of your own fault because there ARE alternate routes. but that still doesn't mean you're going to be safe. :(

    ive been to a few schwags, and all were unquestionably awesome.
    the people music and beautiful country land realy work in harmony for a magical weekend :)

    ..the thing about Salem is that the typical hippys driving through eagerly to get to the fest dont realize the offense taken by the townspeople..
    its their town, and its really a nice one too, so drive respectfullly..and lay off the glowsticks till u get there :p

    i really hope i get to go in july bc i have a lot of friends who are and OMG THERES A ZEPPELIN TRIBUTE!! but i dont have a ride, so if any of you are departing or going through st.louis HIT ME UP and ill exchange a favor

    I think we are going to the big summer classic to catch SCI for the last time, anyone else considering this? I say 'think' simply because the tickets are so much more expensive than normal. I personally would prefer to go for Zoso or keller williams but i think I am out voted :(
