When I first heard of Adventure Fest, I was skeptical. Long bike rides, partially supported but not led. No planned clinics, not a lot of structure of any nature to speak of. There was a strong feeling of “if you build it, they will come.” It was a leap of faith in cyclists’ willingness to get together for a shared experience of a fairly individualized sport, and was certainly putting a lot of optimism in the sky, in a region that only has sun for 45% of its daylight hours. When I was asked to be an ambassador for Thick Bikes, where I work, I cautiously said yes. When Swift Industries, a sponsor of the event, invited my bike shop to share tent space and come up with a way to represent what we envision as the best of freedom on two wheels, we jumped at the idea and knew it was going to sweeten the festival; if nothing else, it’s more fun to show up to a party with a pal. I know the folks at Bicycle Times, the publication behind Adventure Fest. Their sister publication, Dirt Rag, puts on a similar event, Dirt Fest, at a nearby campground....
Here at ENO, there is only one thing more important to us than hammocking: responsible hammocking.  We’ve taught you how to hammock responsibly out in nature, and now it’s time to address a place where hammocks come together for a weekend-long party: music festivals. Some points to remember when hammocking at a festival are:   Don’t leave your hammock up and alone. If you’re using your hammock, great!  But once you’re done relaxing in it, make sure to take it down quickly.  With the attached stuff sack, putting your hammock away is quick and easy, plus you can easily take it wherever you go.  You wouldn’t want a stray festival-goer to be walking through the trees and crash into your hammock! Additionally, hammock thieves do exist, and leaving an unattended hammock hanging may result in having no hammock.  And no hammocks make us very sad.   Take care of the area around you You may need a lot of stuff (i.e. food, clothes, wallet, WATER, and much more) but that doesn’t mean you have to leave a lot of stuff.  Take care to pick up any trash you may accumulate or see and encourage others to do the same.  ...
The sixth annual Hangout Music Festival on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama was stellar this year! There was a great lineup including Zac Brown Band, The Mowglis, Beck, My Morning Jacket and so many more. It was hard to decide which bands to miss and which bands to see!
Maybe you missed your chance to go to Coachella, again. Rather than getting bummed, choose from the other amazing festivals happening across the country, all summer long. Wakarusa Now in its 12th year, Wakarusa is four days of bliss on Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas. The festival is host to more than 150 acts and a thriving community based on friendship. Be prepared for a range of temperatures in the Ozarks in June as it can go from chilly to balmy in a matter of hours. Pack sturdy shoes you don’t mind getting dirty (maybe a couple pairs), shorts and a few warmer items along with your sunscreen and normal essentials. If you’re feeling frisky, pack a costume to participate in the Friday night content and parade or to add to the performance element of the event. Groups of three or more attending and camping together are designated as tribes. They may have their own flag or totem that allows them to find each other, or their camp, easily in the sea of people. Concerts and events are non-stop and scattered around the grounds on a number of stages, in the woods and in open areas. Make sure you grab a...
