going completely on my own this year. Have the campsite secured, kid-care lined up, and tickets secured. Looking forward to 5 days of no housework, no laundry, no "Mom" duty, just me, horses and horse people everywhere! (Though, yes, I do love and will miss the family...)
Also going on a dime this year - are the headsets worth it? I didn't go last year and I followed Sally O'Connor's commentary online. I enjoyed it. Is this basically what I'll get with the headset rental? I found recently the stadium noise and chatter (and the awful music they play) takes away from two wonderful days of Dressage. Any feedback welcomed...AND, message me if anyone wants to swap contact info and rendez-vous when we get there.

I got the head set at Badminton and it was fantastic. Seems to me I got Sally's commentary at Rolex one time for the dressage days and it was pretty great. Why not spring for one day then get it again if you love it? Especially if you are alone. With no one talking to you, you can get completely into the commentary.
