Very cool your coming, the place is real small and real flat, you're going to like this fest ;)

I like to do that once in a while. Although i do value my festivalling friends most of the time, this fest seems like a perfect one to fly solo to. I already have friends there! LOL.

Is this a mountain bike friendly place? I was thinking of bringing it....

Target arrival, 3pmish...

Safe trip out everyone.

Warning: I suck at names. Please forgive me.

OK, so I'm going. Won't get there till Friday. I have tried numerous times to confirm with Festival management that HomegrownRadioNJ.org will have a Booth there, but so far no confirmation. If anyone knows the powers that be, I'd love to nail this thing down before I head out there... :bouncey:

Please ask JP to come up with a new bedtime story for Tabbooma, Tabbooma already knows the ending of the Tabbooma in the woods story, although very enjoyable, a new one would be refreshing. Thanks :)

Just getting ready to drop our daughter off at the airport after being here for a two week visit (her longest since high school). Had the chance to attend Peach Fest together. Sad to see her leave.

On the other hand, packing the car for Bear's sure does bring a smile or two. OK, more like a shit eating grin.

Avion Reposado. OMG it is delicious!

I'm impressed! Never had it, but it looks mighty tempting! I am 90% ready, and very excited.
Found a solar shower. Interesting. There's a warning label on it that reads;
"This product contains chemicals known to the
state of California, to cause cancer and birth
defects or other reproductive harm".
Not sure if I should use this. But the "State of California" part mitigates some of my concern. ;)

I just walked in the door from a week of business travel in Detroit, MI. I was a booth bunny at an exceedingly boring technical symposium. Couldn't wait to get the hell out of there. They fed us like cattle, every 2 hours with food like they'd serve on a cruise ship. It was ridiculous. And my booth was set up right next to one of the feeding troughs. I swear, I gained 5 lbs eating like a fatass Amercian businessman. Zero willpower. Not too happy with myself on that one.

Anyway, tommorrow morning, I slam together whatever I can pack into my little Toyota camry and head out there. Flying solo. I think I'm gonna blow off the Mt bike. The trick, as always, will be the food/equipment decisions. As advised earlier, I'll forgoe any heavy infrastructure...hoping to scam on available equipment. (Is there a king cooker available?)

I think I'm gonna try to reverse the tides here and pack for healthy eating this weekend.

Word of advice? Avoid Rts 11 & 15 around Harrisburg around 3-6 if possible. That area becomes a shitstorm at rush hour. Look for alternates if coming from the south. Those folks coming from the north should see little to no significant traffic delays.

If you still want to try he is with a VW bus with a sun on it and a large tarp. Somewhere way back behind the stage. The white cop car is across the road though. He wasnt allowed to park rhe car with his friends RV

We got home a little while ago.....


What an excellent time- even though we spent 27 hours there- it was amazing, full of awesomeness and coffee, and good stuff.
I can't begin to explain how grateful I am for the Lucky Dawgz, Kind Buds and all of you shining people who helped us out <3
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. again and again....
<3

I love magical festivals.
this is a magical festival.

love you guys.

and the Mickey Hart Band is the fucking SHIT.

I don't know if I could write a better summation than this. I was really moved by this festival... just such a perfect time!

Many thanks to all the good folks who welcomed me into their scene. It was truly an honor to be partying with Pro's who've been around the block a few thousand times with festivals and who know what they're doing. So many kindred spirits! I really was a Lucky Dawg! ;-) I can't thank you all enough and I'm certain our paths will cross again!

The worst thing about this festival was there was too much good music going on. It sometimes got in the way of my socializing! LOL. Very often, I wanted to be in 3 places at once. But I always place highest priority on the scheduled music sets at music festivals! Go figure! ;-)

Mickey Hart Band was so pleasantly and ridiculously twisted that I'm perusing the rest of their tourdates to see if I can't see 'em again. ZOMG!!!

Karen summed it up the MHB's bizzarreness perfectly at setbreak...I only wished I could remember what she said! LOL

Clearly, Mickey Hart hasn't let any dust settle on him. I'm very happy to see him still moving forward. To be honest, I thought the MHB was about 20x more cosmic that anything I heard at Furthur...

What a fantastic weekend! Thanks so much to the Lucky Dawgz, Kind Buds, and everyone else there for you kind hospitality! I have to agree with the above posts, MHB was OTT!! Cabinet was a great topper. It was great to meet so many new friends, old friends, and to finally put faces to names. You all made my festival! (~);}

I tried my best to not be unintentionally rude
