Grateful for Spring
Mountain Sky, Jermyn PA
May 12-13, 2017
So I have been hearing about Mountain Sky in Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA) for quite some time and thought it was high time I went and checked out the place. So we packed up my wife’s clothing vending booth (https://www.facebook.com/Old78clothing/ for the finest in festival wear) and took the nearly 5 hour trek from our central New England homestead. After we stopped for dinner, later stopped for gas and coffee and locked the keys in the new van (Triple A had us worked out in one hour, easy peasy) and a very short trip off of the interstate, we were pulling into Mountain Sky.
It was Thursday night and the festival wasn’t officially opening for another twelve hours, but the lack of people milling around was a harbinger of the casual and easy going nature of this crew. We met the folks we needed to meet (the crew up there is great from Ragu to Mike to Penny, Rachel and many other really great people) and staked out our vending spot. A quick night of rest in the van and we were raring to go the next day.
