hey all you wharf rats and various other sober campers. this year will be much the same as last with a nice little spot carved out on the east side of the park for all of you who wish to camp together. as usual, the wharf rats will have a table in the non-profit village with info on meeting times.

 

if you want to camp here (and you know you do!) please send me an e-mail to: sobercamping@gatheringofthevibes.com

 

when we are up and running, i will send you an approval number and a link so you can enter yourselves right into our database. in the meantime, i will send you an e-mail acknowledging that i did receive your e-mail. this will let you know that you have a spot but you must watch out for that 2nd e-mail with the sign up instructions.

 

we did not fill up last year so please tell your friends who wish to share in the sober camping experience.

 

happy camping everyone! :)

 

love,

sums :heart:

So i am going to be going to this festival, which is my first sober. I am camping with a bunch of "normies" who drink and smoke. I will need to find some sober folks to hang with. I have over 4 years of freedom, but i do not discount the power of the bottle.

Soo.. Are you looking to camp in sober camping or hang?
Either way ,last year it was behind the late night stage.
The Wharf Rat set up was on the sidewalk by the ferriswheel. Waterside.

Goddi,
Definitely stay in touch with us here. As we get closer to the festival there will be more posts. You are more than welcome (expected, really) to join us as much as you can. I'm sure your friends are cool, but if it gets to you then feel free to move your tent. I did that my first year. You can always find us at the table, too. It can be hard to meet new people, so don't let strange personalities get in the way of saying hello and forcing your way in. We really do welcome everybody. We also start acting a little funny as the excitement grows.

Anybody unsure of camping with the Rats should know this. BE CAREFUL! You will be in constant danger of making lifelong friendships with truly beautiful,kind,caring human beings! Oh, did I fail to mention the hardest and craziest dancers on the planet! Come join the tribe!

You may stay up raging the late night stage, going to a 3:30 a.m. meeting, the wake up and find yourself enjoying coffee and fellowship early in the morning.

Thanks guys. I will most likely be looking to hang and hit a meeting with you guys and share that early morning coffee. :) I am far from shy and will be thrilled to meet new interesting people. My friends are really cool nice people, but i don't want them to feel out of place because of my problems, so i want to let them know that i will be walking off to meet people (as i am sure you all know by now that i am the center of the me universe and they will all worry so much if i go walking off at a festival hahaha) I am also a crazy dancer as well and love to have fun. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Hello friends. I read that the sober camping area is on the east side of the park and that last year it was behind the Green Vibes Stage... But since I have never been to Vibes, and I can't find a map on the website, this doesn't give me too much info. Do you know if there are trees in the sober camping area this year? And will I be able to get some good rest if needed? thank you in advance!!

Hi hanneface!

 

It is close the Green Vibes/Late Night stage. Earplugs are recommended, but it's a nice spot.

Alright. I finally got all this sorted out and I got the message saying that passes would be mailed in early July. It is now July 10th. did I miss out? Am I too late? Is the sky falling? I would just like to say that this would be soooooo much easier with a phone # and an actual human conversation. Alas, I believe I am the last person in the country who feels this way.

George, if you need a phone number and an actual human conversation, you can always call the office. but they will tell you the same thing: passes have not gone out yet. in all reality, it takes about 3 days for mail to get anywhere (except across the country) so even if we mail them out middle of next week, they will be there in plenty of time :)

Excited to be heading to the vibes tomorrow,  be nice to meet you all.  Around six years ago reached out to a few folks on this board, that was the beginning of my journey to sobriety. Been sober for several years now and this will be my first vibes since.
