UPDATE !!

The Rainbow gathering will be happening in New Mexico !
The full directions are now up on the internet.

Parque Venando - Santa Fe National Forest.
Near Cuba NM, Which is nearish Santa Fe.

I've been getting alot of feedback about the rainbow gather and STP peeps.
Seems a few STP peeps are going and we 've agreed to meet up at the gather.

So I'd like to suggest a meet up someplace on the main site and if some peeps
want to go to A camp(alcohol) as well, that's up to you to organize that.

I'll be in the trading circle alot and also looking for a good friendly vegan kitchen
to work in !


Email me and see ya there.

Yeah, rainbow gatherings don't seem to be a thing that most folks here seem to be into. Over on digihitch or tribe.net though you can find tons of other folks that are going to those. I have to agree with Arrow, NM in the summer does not look appealing.

Maybe this year they're going for more of a burning man type environment... Bring water or die!

Hey all,

As much as I would want to experience Burning Man................
It isn't free to get in - it's fucking expensive...

I don't have $300 bucks to go play ' chaos' in the desert.
Though tips on sneaking in /working the crew would be helpful
for people who want to go.............

:eatit:
And unfortunatley most of the 'burners' I have met are
Hipster assholes, with alot of money -
Hipster being another word for 'new yuppie' trendy fucks
ripping of OUR alternative culture and calling it their own.

Yeah met some drainbow assholes too............
still............

Anyway this is a call out to anyone going for a
STP road dawg meet up at the nat gather.

So let's meet up if your going !

It's a hippie thing with a long history of hippieness with regional gatherings and a big honking national one.

am i slow? i still don't get what exactly goes down at these things...

Well, it is a bit difficult to describe if you don't hang around the types who go to those things, and I'm guessing you haven't really gotten to know any of them. There is alcohol in the A-camp (hence the A) and drug use where pot is the most popular, but you can probably find a wide variety if you try. Officially there isn't supposed to be money transactions going on and officially it's supposed to be full of people who have "dropped out" of society in general, though that might be a bit questionable. Anyway, there's food about, drumcircles, new ager and vintage hippie stuff around. There will be some good people around, but you'll also encounter plenty of people who aren't. I don't know exactly how to describe it to someone unfamiliar with the rainbows, since I was under the impression that you can find people to go to those things everywhere.

One of my friends told me about one guy who gave workshops on hugging, and I am not kidding you about this. She nearly murdered him, too.

Hahaha! Sounds like a blast. Yeah I mean I've met those types around Haight street and Hippy Hill and places like that, but I never really cared to find out much about them.

Q: Whats the difference between heady nuggets and a rainbow sister?

A: The heady nuggets won't make their way around the whole gathering.
