The idea of camping with 100 thousand strangers on hot and dusty farm certainly does not sound glamorous, but Bonnaroo makes up for it in heart in ways no other festival comes close.  Bonnaroo is situated on a 700 acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, USA.  Seemingly overnight its attends form into a giant family radiating with positive energy.  Its super jams in which musicians from all genres collaborate together make the shows unique from any other festival.  

This year we drove 1240 km from the small town of St. George, Ontario, Canada, down to Manchester, Tennessee, in a 1981 Volkswagen Westfalia.  It was the vans first rode trip since my friend purchased it last fall and it withstood the gruelling journey despite a broken AC and gas gauge.
