Starting in Neenah Wisconsin, we drove about 2.5 hours through corn fields, forests and a collection of small midwestern towns. The final stretch into North Freedom felt as close to being in the wilderness as one probably can in the middle of the cheese state. Tall trees, wide open plains, cute country homes, and barns and barns and barns. The gas station stores we made pit stops at were pretty outstanding as well. There’s clearly a much more to offer in these parts than one might assume. In-fact, we were so mesmerized we forgot to take any photos!
Setting up camp
We must have been excited for the festival because we were the first to arrive and start setting up camp! We found a nice family-sized space in a pleasant wooded area near the main barn and created our little camp village for the weekend. By the time others started to arrive and set up their own tents, we were already sipping tea and munching on snacks.
After getting our camp set up we were finally able to take a look around at the festival grounds and get acquainted with our new home for a weekend of yoga activities and camp fires.
We wrapped up the day with some amazing live music by Derek Ramnarace, a delicious dinner buffet, and some child’s play in the main pavilion, before settling in for the night.
