it's pretty much a whole bunch of people in the woods, cooking food, trading and bartering for things they want, praying for peace, helping out, no money, no electronics and connecting with others! i love it!

hmm.. well my dad is a cowboy, he likes the fires and stars of a gathering but the "hippies" might be a bit much for your d.h.

We just got back from the MO gathering and I feel so refreshed. We all had such a great time (even if it was like a giant A camp) and my boys were so helpful and polite to everybody, they made me so proud. It was so nice being Home with Family. There were some LEO's roaming around but we didn't see any problem from them. It was much much much smaller than the NM gathering (maybe about 100 people at the peak) but it was absolutely wonderful and we'll totally be going back next year.

LOL they might be but being married to me he lives with his fair share of far out things and deals nicely with my hippie friends. but it is a concern . I used to go to Look out Rnach with my cousin before I had kids and hope now that we both have kids to hit somme festival more localy
