Discussion in 'Rainbow Family' started by dotadave, May 12, 2004.
I'd like to join the family. You seem like a friendly group and I'd like to make new friends.
if you've got a belly button and an open mind and heart, you're already family
also (haha, I'm a ditz and thought I posted it before)
I am in FL too.. There is Ocala regional in usually the 2 weeks of Feb. Where in Fl are you?..=)
Love and Light
Orlando most of the year.
Hey, stil...the next regional in the Southeast will be the Katuha Family Summer Solstice Regional, probably in North Carolina. (Katuah is Rainbow Hippiespeak for the Southern Appalachains.) Info should be available sometime between the 14th-21st June on the Atlanta Lightline (770) 662-6112, or possibly Flickerfeather's lightline in Tampa (352) 463-0450. I highly recommend this Gathering to you. Old School Rainbow Love...and it will get you out of Florida's heat and humidity for a while in June. Not that long of a drive, unless you are down in South Florida.
Please don't make ocala your first gathering, it is not the impression you visualize when you read about rainbow online.
What gathering in Ocala? You mean the Barry Sacharow Rainbow Dolphin Camp where you get free bracelets at the gate and you can even get a frisbee that says ocala rainbow dolphin fest, (for a modest donation of course.)
we live in panama city FL , we have plenty of ride room. we are looking to meet people in the area into the rainbow. we will be attending Ocala when we find out where it is. we might head down early to hook up with people. our # is 850-234-9820 Kind is my name , my wife has yet to get a Rainbow name yet. Moss is my buddy from WI and I bet a lot of you know him. We love you all. get a hold of us.
Is that the one in feb?
ahhh, the old "do i make ocala my first gathering" discussion. i know it well. come to ocala! we would love to meet you. ocala needs lots of love and good people and if the good people stay away then ocala justs gets worse! ocala was my first gathering and it changed my life for the better. it was an awesome time and i met people i still travel with. i love all you beautiful belly-buttoned people: front gate spangers, lake mary rebels, techno-hippies, bucko-land pirates, road dogs, crusty punks, rv driving viet vets, krishnas and jesus and pagans, spun or drunk or straight - you all should come and share the light. (p.s. i especailly love you grandma and grandpa. we miss you and your zuzu coffee. come back to us because we are better for your efforts). after all, it's one of the best amusement park rides of the year. hell, i sold barry an armband last year (well, i never got around to getting the money from him actually). pitch in - help with a kitchen. bring some awesome tradeables. and make sure you burn down the little blonde spun chick sitting on main trail at 4am answering all your universal questions and fucking with the "lets go see the hippies" tourists. that will be me.
i love you chime. no, really!
*that was a beautiful post*
Hold it now. Don't let the Katua family know you posted any info about their gathering on the internet. Them's are folk who don't appreciate this pubilicity at all.
i believe the brother chime hit it on the head about ocala. also about katuha family they are ANAL about staying off the web. we all should try and respect that. so bring lots of love donations and maybe a few hug donations and come be our friends. lovin you family
They've spread their cheeks a little.
Oh, and Chime, HO!
Guess you could call me a techno-hippie - oh well. Will see y'all folks (hopefully) this Feb here in Florida. Thanks to the "powers that be" for my finding this thread - I've missed Ocala for the past couple of years (well, OK, this would technically be my first "real" gathering - assuming you can't count all of the drum circles and gatherings of friends over the years).
If you see a guy with a hip-tied bag o' flutes - and if he tells you that nearly every one was a gift from a friend, that'll probably be me.
No worries - I pack out what I pack in and I pitch in.
Look forward to seeing you all.
PostEdit: Uhh - by the way - if anyone *does* know anything about Ocala '05, feel free to e-mail me details at email@example.com - I'd sincerely appreciate it. Many thanks.
I went to ocala last year and it was fine. A little more alcohol and late nite yelling than i prefer as well as a rave in the lot and lots of A CAMP road dogs as well. It was not my first gathering. (PA "86 was) I thought it was great and I had a wonderful time and i am making plans to go back. I find gatherings are as good as you make them ( as is life) If you dwell in the negative than that is what you reep. If you sow music, love and dance then a you will harvest a bounty of joy.
see ya in the woods!
Where in Ocala is the gathering being held?
The permitted site is called 7 Sisters by the family and Shanty Pond by the FS.
The unpermitted site (bring beer money for Little Hawk) is at Long Pond about fifteen miles south.
Little Hawk told me he'd be at quartzsite this year... has he changed his mind and decided Ocala instead?
and this year so far the kids at Buck Lake had a keg almost everyday, lol. I'm sure there is still plently of nasty ice money comin' in.... yuck!
