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.

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.

Roommate: "Didn't you have second thoughts when you saw that she had "trouble" tattooed on her arm? "
Me: "Well, no..."
Roommate: "How about when she said the cops were after her?!"

I made it all the way to Dallas! I spent my weekend in a motel for Easter, and had a pretty good time.
So I found this nice, wooded park in a safe suburb of Dallas, right? Well there’s a lot of what might be poison ivy. Okay, so I find that I’m near a bridge with a small creek near it.

Then the Hobo Gods decided my string of very good luck needed Thanos-style balance. I get my sleeping bag out, and that little shit rolls down the hill, into the river, and drifts away forever. RIP

After some serious roadblocks i am about to be on the open road again. With Charcoal of course. In my blue 96 chevy and even older box camper in search of plug ins and showers we roll. Taking a quick trip to Winnipeg, leaving Thunder bay on the 26th then down Toronto way sometime after that. Hit me up if you know youre gonna be on the way. Cheers.
don't cry baby life ain't fair
Just got a ride to Eugene. Looking likely I will spend the night there.
Dropped off at a rest stop just before Albany, OR. Hopefully I can get a longer ride before the sun goes down.
Short ride to Albany. Hopefully I get longer ones from there.
