What is “glamping” you might ask? Well, “glamping” is a term used for glamorous camping and what better way to do that than at a music festival. Those glamorous festival goers love to camp in style in an Airstream or mobile home. Here is the way it is done by our guest writer Tim & Blair Givens and friends.
Riverhawk Music Festival 2018
Each year it begins in April at String Fest (another yearly festival ) in Brooksville, Florida, when you sign up to keep your reservation for Riverhawk. We begin preparing the trailer and discussing plans with our fellow campers. We typically have about 12 or so at our site , staying in trailers or tents.
Group dinners are always the center of discussion and prepared by a different group each night, Breakfast and lunch are found at a variety of great food booths around the venue. Peggy always prepares epic cheese eggs grits on Sundays .
Our days begin early, re-stoking the previous nights fire, coffee, walks through the campsite, tidying up the camp and then a bike ride through the hills. The music begins at noon and runs through out the day on three stages, ending around midnight.
that’s when the real fun begins. lots of jamming around campfires and ending in the wee hours .
Before you know it , the weekend is over, camps are breaking down and the talk is of reconnecting at String Break in April.
Our guest writer is Tim Givens of Palm Beach, a mandolin and banjo player and student for many years. Tim is an avid boater, skier and camper.
