@  Supplic... : (18 June 2015 - 02:51 PM) Kiss kiss! Hula, being a pantomime kind of dancing, is much like dancing like us Bobby dancers that pantomime every word just like he used to stop playing to hand gesture it out hehe
@  PoetryGirl : (17 June 2015 - 08:39 PM) Steph, grooving in Aloha tonight at Hula class and thought of you
@  Supplic... : (15 June 2015 - 05:19 PM) Day job? The night job pays! I just can't quite get off the island! ;) hehe, lonesome and a longway, just come play w me in Hawaii, all of you!!!!
@  HelpSlip : (12 June 2015 - 04:09 AM) keep that day job Steph and get to Atl/BlkMtn ! i can be yur ride
@  Supplic... : (10 June 2015 - 04:11 PM) It is $100 cheaper to fly into ATL first week of Aug for Blk mtn but damn dudes, it is lotsa $ to fly outta Hawaii! Maybe have a job at kava/Kombucha bar soon...
@  Supplic... : (10 June 2015 - 04:06 PM) Anyone wanna see me bad enough to get me a flight to Richmond from Hilo, HI for Pocahontas and Blk Mtn? Only gotta make it back to Denver..... Hehehe
@  Mason... : (05 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) If I spend my days more productively, I can get a lot more done than I am doing now. Not all are in that same position.
@  Mason... : (05 June 2015 - 05:52 PM) I'm not talking of solely subsistence farming. I'm more talking supplemental farming. Adding to what I'm doing. Not replacing.
@  chuckvegas : (05 June 2015 - 04:58 PM) For an interesting take on subsistence farming check out Talking Heads' "Nothing But Flowers."
@  Mango : (05 June 2015 - 12:33 PM) permaculture :)
@  PoetryGirl : (05 June 2015 - 09:51 AM) yes, Steph. It would be gracious goodness to see you. Check out milpa, a crop growing system used in mesoamerica. They have literally farmed the same piece of land without crop rotation for thousands of years. The combo naturally enriches the soil.
@  HelpSlip : (04 June 2015 - 06:52 PM) steph please come to black mountain
@  Supplic... : (04 June 2015 - 02:49 PM) and we could use a private dancer.... Hehe
@  Supplic... : (04 June 2015 - 02:48 PM) I have been harvesting Mung beans and papayas at the house. Grow your own food. Turn the soil and let it rest so bugs can wiggle out n away. Be mindful w each bite. Examine our gratefully dead bodies that are not our minds. Kiss kiss!
@  found : (04 June 2015 - 01:04 PM) I'll be your private dancer Mango.
@  Mango : (04 June 2015 - 12:43 PM) I'll lecture you little Found.
@  Mason... : (04 June 2015 - 12:39 PM) I'm down. I wouldn't call what mango and I did lecturing. Very much discussing and sharing what we believed not telling anyone what to believe. We should do this in private but I don't hang with mango much right now.
@  found : (04 June 2015 - 12:37 PM) you're a wizard... my point is I don't care about what you eat. I do care that you are happy and healthy but wouldn't lecture anyone about how to achieve either. Having said that, you and I have a date with some beef brisket next time we get together.
@  Mason... : (04 June 2015 - 12:13 PM) So does discussing complicated issues with friends. I have lots of free time.
@  Mason... : (04 June 2015 - 12:11 PM) I would say what is happening is complicated. What I'm talking about is different but a simple concept. I like to eat things. I also like to feel good about who I am. I don't think there is anything wrong with doing both. Both help me get through the night.

I'd love an experienced opinion: Are children ages 3 and 5 too young for a three day camping festival? If there was a hotel option, I could pull this off, but we've never done the camping thing with the kids. Any thoughts?

I know from observations made at the Ledges that a fair number of folks had little people of the FHA (Future Hippies of America) persuasion there and things seemed to go fine, at least during daylight hours. I'm not sure how it went for them in the depths of the woods at the dark of night, and as you no doubt know, your experiences may vary. Duct tape is certainly one child restraint option when all else fails.

If the children can take three days of "normal" outdoors fun, I would think they could handle this unless they are really rambunctious.

Depending on what kind of shape you are in at the end of the night ... because the great city, home of the Ohio State Buckeyes, Columbus ... is only a spell down the road....

and since the site is right off of "I-70" you have quick access in and out ... plus hotels dot the exits going in both directions ....

.... Are children ages 3 and 5 too young for a three day camping festival? ....


I've seen many young ones at Grateful Fest but at several other festivals I can't remember children of that age. I'm sure a big factor is how well the whole family is prepared to look after them. There are situations like who is going to watch the child while both parents' favorite band is on stage latter at night. A couple years ago I camped next to a family who in the afternoon of the first day the gentleman told me that they were pulling up their tent and heading home because the child was starting to show initial small signs of possible illness , a sneeze or two I think he said. It was a good example of being dedicated to taking care of the child even when it meant they were going to miss everything.

Peace and Love,
Doc

Thanks to all for Ur insights. It just sounds like such a fun event! But my girls r still too young, i think. I just can't wait to bring them and dance with them. They love to dance, too! But in reality, they would probably only be happy for about a day,if that, so i'll just try to cool my heels for a while. Come to think of it, I should probably take them to a couple of shows ( in a couple of years)before I start taking them to festivals. U guys helped. Thanks again.

I would recommend taking them to the springfield show earlier in the summer, if you are in the area, to see how they react to the crowd. there are always a lot of young ones there. I believe I will be bringing my 4 kids to this, but they are older 9-16. Lineup looks awesome, can't wait, i was hoping Jorma and Cornmeal would be there!
I'm alright sir, just dodging the potholes

got a "rising star vip ticket" which allegedly gives me the privelege of camping next to my vehicle. got a small pop up so i gots my own shade. the pictures i saw, having never been to buckeye before, led me to believe that shade would be hard to come by. can anyone give me some feedback about camping there? please compare and contrast to nlqp thanks for your help
