What a fantastic venue for a weekend of
The skies threatened but held off
as performers such as Gord Bamford, Brett Kissel, Tim Hicks,
Lindsay Ell, The Road Hammers, River Junction Band,
Whitney Rose, and my favourites High Valley and Dierks Bentley,
belted out their top songs to an enthusiastic crowd of
some 7,000 fans!
The camping was literally in the adjacent fields,
with crowded camp sites of tents, trailers, busses, and
all sorts and sizes of RV vehicles!
Most of the time the "fields were alive with the sound of generators" - ugh!
We did feel a little smug with our wee Escape trailer
that required no hydro or generator to function for this event.
The solar panel and propane
provided all our needs for
lights, pumping water, refrigeration and cooking.
It worked beautifully!
The canned sausage was
delicious and made for a
quick meal between sets.
The evening performances went well past midnight but we
"old folks" persevered and enjoyed the coolness of these last
After all, we had a cozy warm bed waiting for us in the field....
Till next time, what was your weekend like?
