Does this have a location yet ? I live in South Dakota and the last time you were here the Sioux tribal elders gave you the go ahead to be on the land. (Which with that you can get away with a lot here with a Sioux tribes blessing)

They may have a state decided by now, but location will not be disclosed until a few days before the meeting.
Not many here are very intorested in it. You will have better luck on fb.

Everytime someone creates a new thread about rainbow, a crusty angel gets a face tattoo.

Wisconsin is the area so far decided from last year's vision council. It took a long time this past year for it to come up on the page. I check often

dismiss all rumors, the 2019 has not been decided upon yet. The spring council will be held this month or next month and possible locations will be announced after as well as the state shortly there after. The exact location will be announced the end of the month prior to the gathering or shortly before said months end.

I've never been, but I've heard it's usually hosted on national forest land. If that holds true, then I'd guess it'll probably be held at Chequamegon- Nicolet National Forest, which is the only national forest in Wisconsin.

Then again, maybe not. It's deep in the Northwoods, where logging and tourism are bigger industries than agriculture and industry, so trains are scarce and IMs nonexistent, and what few trains do come through will be junkers. The closest shipping/industry hubs you'll find are the ports of Superior/Duluth and Green Bay. It's 50 miles to the far Western edge of the forest from Superior, or 55 to the far Southern border from Green Bay.

Transportation would therefor be an issue. Maybe you could cover 50 miles on foot- I won't deny it's possible, though food would be hard to come by as there aren't many towns up there. With some effort it can be covered in a single day by bicycle (I speak from personal experience), though hilly terrain might add another day or two. But traffic is light that far north, and most summer traffic is rich FIBs and people from South/Central WI heading to their family cabins- which may be problematic for hitchhikers.

Commercial bus lines don't even exist that far north- Wausau is the end of the line, and that still puts you 100 miles short unless you go to Green Bay or Superior, but we've already discussed that.

Sorry to ramble, just covering all the bases. I'm just not sure how you'd reliably move large numbers of people to the Northwoods for a festival, so maybe they'll hold it further south (which would be easier to reach without a car) but I can't think of any good places for a festival there.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $40.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

TFW you're a trans girl hitching solo over a thousand miles through Western Colorado, Utah, Las-fucking-Vegas, and all the way down to California without a scratch or nary a creep to fight off only to get drugged in a gay bar that I've been to before during a pride night that's billed as a trans/nonbinary/gender-nonconforming/POC event in San Diego. Wowzers

(Don't worry, I was safe and taken care of that night, just taking a moment to appreciate the fucking irony)

Just got off the hi- line . In minneapolis for a hot minute.. Anybody passing through let me buy yall a beer or 12.
Raised in Nowhere, Washington State, USA where the forests, hills, mountains are playgrounds. Work & play in the forests. Retired now.Realizing the finish line's much closer than the starting line. Man-tracker, 50+ yrs. (Multiple disciplines). I also instructed tracking until retirement. Attended "survival" training several times (guv'ment & private), some mandatory. Saw the website & took a peek. It rekindled the wanderlust in me with a bit more of a tempered attitude.
Anyone else having problems with the site loading slowly and acting glitchy?

Blessed is the flame that burns

Blessed is the heart with strength to stop its beating for honor’s sake.
