Festival Boondocking for NYE 2017
« on: January 28, 2018, 07:53:53 pm »
Suppose 'Camo Net' 'Tapestries' 'Tie Dye' and 'Christmas Lights' were all necessary for your campsite. :) We are used to basing this around a 1971 VW Bus, so the 2350 is a mansion.

pic 0296- PC 2350, Awning out. Camo netting deployed, and 8x8 popup for 'privacy airlock' to underawning area. Unfortunately roaming ne'er do wells roam festivals, we call them 'Wookies'. The 8x8 acts as a double door keeping them out.

pic 0298 - Mrs V modeling.  (exactly) 2o2

pic 0109 - The little red heart is a fixture with us. Originally hot glued to the side of the Bus as part of a 2500+ LED driving light show
                (c2013) then an outdoor ornament WANEE 2014/15/17. Now is on the coach.  heartshower

pic 0299 - Right Rear view. The wind was HOWLING across the field, so there are ground anchors and a rope over the awning. Pink
                pool noodle and christmas lights help others avoid the rope. It is ALL contained on our 'lot' however.

pic 0433 - A full moon for a full year. Last night there.


pic 0438 - A bit tore up from the wind. We had pretty good lighting.

I took down the camp from ~2100-2230 hrs New Years Eve, as rain was forecast for the early AM. Like 6AM early. I figured better to sleep a night cramped than pack wet.

Worked out well. After the final performance ended at 0130 hrs New Years Day, I figured I would just drive home. What the heck... i was packed up and only ~2.5 hrs from home. Sober from working audio and video archiving.

Pumped the tanks out into a handy Port-O-Let, and headed home. Love that macerator pump. Passed only 3 cars the first 100 miles... and few on i-95 on the final leg home.  >:(

All in all I am VERY pleased with this coach. The trip across highway 60 was more like piloting a small plane. Light buffeting from the road was very much like turbulence.  Mrs V snoring on the back bed a reminder of my precious cargo on board.  (nod)


Next festy is march at SOSMP.  https://suwanneespringreunion.com/  Got free tix from one of the bands we tape. I have not been a big bluegrass follower, but willing to learn.  :-D

Will do!  I am fairly new to bluegrass, but learning to appreciate it. Billy Strings is supposed to be a 'dont miss' also.
