Festivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaals

Right, so this is old news but my BFF Amanda took all the photos this summer of all the events we did, and due to hurricanes and mad amounts of work in her new home in NOLA she's not been able to share them with me, until now! So instead of writing about what I've been up to lately I thought I'd finally share with you some of what I did this summer, in storyboard format!

GRASSROOTS Festival of Music and Dance, Trumansburg, NY

Grassroots was a blast, late nights, great music, lots of support:






(you'll be happy to know I still had to pay him!)


There were periodic rainstorms throughout the weekend, but thanks to my good friends Paul and Maria of Asia Luna I had an extra roof on my tent which meant we stayed dry:


These girls did not:


Coming home we found a giant turtle, and had to stop and take photos (obviously!):


FALCON RIDGE FOLK Festival of Music and Dance, Hillsdale, NY

Although Falcon Ridge began with much rain, the majority of the weekend was nice and sunny:


Until it wasn't!
The sky was ominous! This is the last we saw before we zipped up and buckled down (and then it proceeded to pelt us with quarter-sized hail and huge gusts of wind):


We held on tight (this funny photo really doesn't convey the violence of the wind, because we didn't have time to take photos when we were all hanging on for dear life!):


And despite some serious flooding (and seriously white thighs, sorry):


We managed to to escape yet again without a leak from the top!:


Others were not so fortunate:


For some it was no matter. This is sort of how I was feeling, even though everyone expected me to be really upset:



It was an eventful summer, and I have to thank Amanda again for taking so many photos, for all the hours spent working on tedious tasks (like tying bows and gluing boxes) and for always being there for me when I was stressing out, or when I was overjoyed.

Looks eventful! But what's with tents and rain? They must attract it, or maybe - it's you! Are you sure you don't attract the showers?

It's just life! I don't even check the weather before events anymore, I just assume it'll probably rain.

Hey, We were there as we have been for 28 years! It was crazy. Seems like we should all wear some sort of badge for having made it thru. Our tent survived. I found your blog over on ravelry (story)... and enjoyed looking at some of your adventures! My daughter is 21 as well.

Hi Linda! I'm glad to hear you made it through! MY little brother made a Facebook group for Falcon Ridge 2008 survivors, but I think that's as close as we're getting to a badge. Maybe they should sell one next year to fundraise to help cover the losses!

I'm also curious how I came up on Ravelry:) I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog! I'm not sure if I'll make it back from Argentina in time for Falcon Ridge this year but if I do, I hope I'll see you there!
