On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again
Here we are, on the road again. This time, instead of 150 miles round trip to a state park in Connecticut, we are covering 500 miles to Maryland. A very modest and pretentious measure of resistance when compared to our final goal. a 7,00 mile cross country trip, but nevertheless another achievement. And once again La Poderosa has shown us how capable and willing she is.
The final destination was The Coalesce Festival: a summer festival full of arts, music and good vibes. This was the first year for this specific festival, though the main groups putting the party together have other festivals going on at the same time (Gaian Mind, Pex, Psybotik, etc).
Having La Poderosa as our HQ was actually great, and originally we had agreed to simply park her, and put our tents up near the sound stages, but after the first night when we had a nice bed and all the benefits of a RV we decided to change our original plans.
We had our music going on any time we wanted, we had the awnings, we could rest inside, and quickly isolate ourselves from the party whenever we wanted to.
One of the tasks for this trip (yes, I am an engineer and my projects are divided in tasks!) was to finally figure out the gas consumption for the big girl. Very simple task, isn’t it? Just fill up the tank, drive 5 hours to Maryland, re-fill the tank and measure the distance. Well, not with this girl. We absolutely have NO idea how many gallons
