We really enjoyed this festival and got to meet some old friends and make some new ones. After three days we were "musiced" out beyond our capacity and headed back for home.
The weather was cold and I was totally unprepared for it. As a result I did not get to see some of the later acts (so called "headliners") that close each night's show. I was in my tent and sleeping bag listening and trying to stay warm!
Only one minor incident marred the weekend. A fellow concert goer slipped and fell in the stream by the "swimmin' hole" and broke his hip. An ambulance had to be called and he was taken care of at a nearby hospital. What a way to spend the weekend!

We can't wait for next year, although we may be in Germany for couple of months. We are not quite sure if we will be here for Memorial Day or not. Only time will tell. Until my next post here are some of the sights we say at Jammin' at Hippie Jacks.
