Goin' down, down, down...

We're heading down to a music festival at the Dead Sea in a few hours. Back Saturday evening. Should be some great music, great friends, and great photo ops. Boy can I use a weekend like that right now!

Catch you on the flip side.

PS It is utterly obscene how much crap a family of four needs to camp out for two nights - even though nearly all of the food will be purchased there!

I just blows my mind that you can say "we're heading down to the Dead Sea in a few hours"! I'd just love to be able to go with you.

Have a Wonderful time.

Now why do I have this image in my mind of a psychedelic VW Microbus and Robin & Co. in tie dyed t-shirts, beaded headbands, harachi sandals, and wire-rimmed granny glasses?

Maybe it was the juxtaposition of the words "music festival" and "Dead".

Hope you have a great time, and I wanna hear all about it when you get back!

Sure go to a music festival by the Dead Sea .. I am so jealous of your camping out NOT ..but I am wishing the Dead Sea was a lot closer

Have a wonderful time. You are so right about packing up a family for a weekend - it is like a traveling circus!!!

Hey, that sounds like a ton of fun! Hope you guys have a terrific time, and I'm anxious to hear about how it went.

P.S. Upon reading Mojo's comment, I initially picked up on the words "music festival" and "Dead" also and pictured a Woodstock-ish image in my mind. Mine wasn't as detailed as Mojo's though :)

OK, I'm the third one with a Woodstock image.

The first question that popped into my mind was weather you also go to Jacob's ladder?

I am sure you are going to have an awesome time!! I wish my husband was into camping!!!

Oh, that sounds fun. And I know what you mean about needing to take a lot of stuff for just a weekend away from home.

Actually, you're not all that far off. It was a folk festival, so a fair portion of the people there spent a number of their formative years doing things like traveling around in VW microbuses LOL. Others either grew up with the music (me) or came to love it later.

We had a great time - once I've sorted through several hundred pictures (to separate out the arty/scenic ones from those which would only be of interest to the participants) I should have enough material for a few good posts :).

PS Yes RivkA, we're regulars at JL - only missed one in the last 15 years :).

PPS Some folks did stay at the kibbutz hotel but we went the budget route. Given how remote the hotel was from the music I think we made the right call - our tent was pitched just about 40 feet from the stage, so when the kids were finally ready to go to bed they just went in and we were able to stay at the jam sessions until the wee hours of the night without a moment's hesitation.

LOL - Neas Nuttiness and Mojo stole the words right out of my fingertips-on-the-keyboard!

Well, now that you're back, I've got an award with your name on it over at my place...
