@  cnjBrian : (03 October 2014 - 08:55 AM) My "59" european hybrid is still running strong. Has some suspension problems, bushings all worn out, mechanic says runs at a steady 70 bpm and oil pressure good. Some computer issues but only overheats at DSO shows!
@  Tea for... : (03 October 2014 - 08:00 AM) Gone are the days we used to decide...1988 Subaru Wagon (RIP) 208K. I criss-crossed the country in "Sunshine" a time or 2. Loved it except I think I had about 8 CV joints replaced until I gave up. Had to turn the heat on to keep from overheating in the summer. Sweet blackout curtains to boot :)
@  Mason... : (02 October 2014 - 11:21 AM) Jenna's CRV is up 210,000. Just did denver to Hollywood and back. She runs great but has some problems non engine related as well. It's a 2005 I believe and the power windows don't work. I love the mechanical never fail windows in my s10. CRV also has no AC

@  Mango : (22 September 2014 - 07:16 PM) It's a diesel...has a host of problems, non-engine related. Really wish they hadn't put power windows in it but I guess in 1984 it seemed like quite a luxury....
@  Tea for... : (22 September 2014 - 03:36 PM) 414?!? That's kilometers, right? Holy Smokes!
@  Mango : (21 September 2014 - 02:54 PM) I'd go for a new or newer car if it was option...
@  found : (21 September 2014 - 09:43 AM) Mango, in all fairness to thunderturd, she didn't die. I could've squeezed some more juice out of her. I was just ready for a change. Having said that, your benz is from another planet.
@  Mango : (20 September 2014 - 10:35 PM) oops...meant 414...she's a beast

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!

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
