Weretoad and I will be making the long drive to The Brushwood Folklore Center this weekend for ADF’s Wellspring festival! We’re both really excited to go. I love seeing fellow Druids from around the world, learning from the elders, and dancing in the drum circle. Hubby just wants a relaxing weekend away from the rest of the world. I’m really glad he likes Wellspring. We still have a ton of packing to do, but this is what my list looks like for now:
- Drinks – alcoholic and non
- Sleeping bags
- four tarps
- a tent
- a canopy to put over the tent
- my traveling altar
- a book to read (or two)
- belly dancing accessories
- plastic bags for clothing
- sarongs (yay!)
- street clothes for our drive home
- warm clothes for the chilly nights
- rain shoes
- flip flops
- ritual garb
- camping cutlery and dishes
- sun screen
- new dolls and plushies for vending at the ADF store
Am I forgetting anything!?
3 thoughts on “Getting Ready for Wellspring”
Generally, when I go to festivals/camping/etc., I also bring:
– any prescription meds family members need
– standard first aid stuff (neosporin, band-aids, aspirin or ibuprofin)
– flashlight and extra batteries (lanterns are good for reading, but not all project enough light to, say, find the way to the outhouse without tripping over a mole burrow or gopher hole at night)
– camera to take pictures of all the awesomeness!
– iPod or equivalent for those miserable times when you can’t focus on anything – I know some folks use it for white noise to tune out party-type external sounds at night if trying to get to sleep
– and on that note, earplugs
Insect repellent and a rope to tie up and use as a clothesline for wet towels etc.
