Amanda ($900 Facebook Pony) and I were chatting earlier this week about Rolex. Living just one hour from the KHP for quite a few years going to Rolex was always on the table. When you don’t have to get a hotel or travel too far it’s really quite affordable IMO.
As of now I think Amanda will fly into Nashville and we will road trip to Lexington. So far we have scoped out tickets and I have tentatively begged Kristen (Fall Line Farm) to let us bunk at her house – more shopping money and a prime location what what?! We have also discussed the possibility of Air BnB as well.
I usually like to scope out the warm up and shop on Thursday or Friday (depending on if I go all 4 days). This gives you the chance to see some of the action but most of all the vendor fair which is seriously unreal. BUY ALL THE THINGS!
For cross country day the primary goal is usually to stay dry and thankfully my awesome sauce family friends usually hook me up with a couple passes for the Land Rover XC tailgate (Yes Please!). Stadium is one of the only days that I like to buy a seat for but I never spend that much if avoidable. Last year was the first time I spent a bit more on a ticket and it was still very reasonable. Provided you don’t sit in any of the crazy sponsor tents you can do it affordably.
So who else is going!? What are your favorite things about Rolex for those that have gone? Please let us know if you will be there so we can have a meet up!
