    Heads up, there’s talk of going vigilante on anyone suspected of being Rainbow in Colorado.
    Reddit Denver.
    Be safe, be inconspicuous as possible until you are Home.

    respect the fire bans. It’s rough here.

    There's talk of that every year wherever the gathering is held. Colorado being the first state to legalize weed, things should be pretty mellow.

    That's a loooong road trip for me, so I will have to pass. Driving the Vizcaino desert is daunting in cooler seasons, but the summer is brutal...
    But the reward would be being with family and sharing the love :)
    Have a great trip!

    I hate to be a party pooper, but wouldn't his qualify as a superspreader event?

    Yes, especially considering how dirty people get. I plan to bring plenty of hand sanitizer and some body wipes, but that is no guarantee. I recommend not smoking pot with strangers, but of course that's bound to happen.

    Sure seems so... another reason to not go... but sometimes you just have to go and be careful, trust in your immune system and pray :)

    On top of the covid fears, I attended the gathering in 2017 in Oregon and caught a stomach bug that went through it like wildfire. People who attended every year said that's not uncommon, the commitee would get water from a creek and filter it but didn't boil it, and people who were given the water would get a bad case of the shits. I recommend bringing plenty of your own water, I plan to bring a 5 gallon dispenser. Or else bring some water purifier tablets.
