i had an awful time. if you don't like bums harassing you on the street for change, think twice before you walk around a rainbow gathering with a burrito.

I also want to go to a Rainbow Gathering. Seems awesome. I'd be able to try all drugs I haven't gotten a chance to do :thumbup:

i've never been there, but i know a few people from back in high school that go to them every once in a while. they are pretty much the biggest fuckups and assholes i know.

that in no way reflects completely upon the audience at rainbow gatherings...but the atmosphere has certainly degenerated since the original family.

yeah, that aspect of it could help you if you need some drugs, but they do it on national forest land, and the one i went to was the biggest violation of leave no trace ethics i've ever seen in my life. hold them on private property for christ sake.

Oh, also; around what age are the people at a rainbow gathering? I have a phobia for old people.

Yes, it's a merry land where drugs grow from gumdrop trees and hippies just lay around eating grapes and sexing all day.

dude say what you mean instead of posting replies that may sound funny to you, but are completely meaningless to those who don't know anything about these gatherings. it's just unhelpful.

So what are these gatherings like? And I know it's just not about the drugs.

I went there this year in Ocala, FL. Didn't come all too prepared with a tent or anything, just backpacks. Got to encounter some rather interesting people, some fucked up, others quite compassionate and true to the spirit of the rainbow gathering. I didn't quite fit in but I sure got high in the circle and enjoyed the two days away from civilization. :peace:

i know it was originally well-intentioned, but all i saw were a bunch of freeloaders pretending to be "at one with nature" while letting their dogs shit everywhere, begging for food, neglecting their campfires, lots of littering, etc.. horrible land ethics, i found it pretty offensive. there were some cool moments, and many decent folks too, but i really think they should be held on private property like most music festivals.

Damn, I posted I know it's not all about the drugs right after you posted that. I'm just saying that the gatherings are probably the best environment for drugs.

I've been to a couple. From my experience, it REALLY depends what region you go to.
The northeastern rainbows have all been pretty cool in my experience. The south is a bunch of crazies,
I'm completely generalizing of course since a lot of them move around, but yeah. It's diverse.
You can't just pin down what a rainbow gathering is unless you are talking about a National Gathering.
I imagine it varies just as much in other countries outside of the US.
What a rainbow gathering is SUPPOSED to be, is a loving community centered on sharing and helping each other and leaving no trace on the land.
Then you have what they call DRAINBOWS, people who 'join' the rainbow community but with no heady vibes, no heady vibes at all.
They are called drainbows because they are a drain on the community.. they just take take take, and never give back,
and usually are the ones bringing the shady drugs like crack, meth and h. People like this fuck with the scene hardcore.

Rainbows aren't just hippies though, anyone with a belly button is part of the rainbow family.

Yeah why not explain that to the sucka? Cynisism doesn't help anyone.

Also no need to be a dick, just pointing that out. Not like all I care about is the drugs.
