Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon Road Trip 2010 : Bonnaroo

In deciding whether or not to take Bebe to Bonnaroo, there were many considerations for my (will be) 8yo. We go to many local music festivals, and so far have fared well.

This isn't just any music festival though, and if you add on a road trip plus 3 nights of camping, well....... I have two thoughts. This will either be an epic adventure that we repeat year after year (until she doesn't want to be seen with her mom anymore) or an epic failure and I'll never get her in the car again! ;) I hope it's the former.

In researching this topic, of course google was pretty handy. A search of "children and Bonnaroo" brought up more links than I could ever read. Overall, it seems that the type of person who would bring a child to an event like all had an overwhelming positive experience. Even the moms of small toddlers found workarounds that made the festival enjoyable for all. I think it helps that Bonnaroo provides a family-friendly campground where we can retreat if needed.

Now, on to start making lists, practice camping trips for Bebe, and gathering supplies.

Epic indeed.

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
