When asked if there was any benefit to being at the top of the line in Rocklahoma, Osburn said, “Just sort of showing off – ‘Hey, I was first here this year.'”

Osburn is a Rocklahoma veteran. He became addicted in 2014 and is part of it for the fifth time, but for the first time equipped with a motorhome. A trucker nicknamed Ozzy by a dispatcher said he slept in his truck in Rocklahoma for a year and camped in a tent on other occasions. (No big deal; it was a bit like his Boy Scout days.)

Osburn isn’t just happy to be back. He’s lucky to be back. He said he was involved in a “pretty terrible” accident a few years ago when a semi-trailer stopped in front of him. He got off the road, rolled over, broke his neck, and suffered knee and shoulder injuries.

“I went straight to zero from 55 mph and was sitting in a ditch,” he said, implying that he added the word “miracle” to the name of his Rocklahoma campsite because it is a miracle that he was is still there to reunite with his festival family.

Osburn could have vacationed anywhere, but he chose Rocklahoma in part because “it’s a family”. He went on to say, “I know it’s a messed up family when you have so many people. Look at your own family. You’re going to have a family get-together of 50 people and, you know, there’s going to be a little drama. You get tens of thousands of people, there will be a little drama. But all in all it’s a great family and we have our backs. If you screw it up, you will know. “
