I've been hailing from the greater Boston area for 11 years now.  Which means I've had to do a lot of flying to/from Colorado.

The 22nd Annual Joe Val Bluegrass Festival is this weekend in Framingham, MA.  What fun.   Cheers

Anyone?

Hey Carlson!

It's Surdock from UR - funny to find you here (well, really I guess it's no shock whatsoever).

Are you going to this year's T-ride?

Hi! We're from the tiny state of Rhode Island~ This will be our 1st trip to TBF~ very very excited!    We didn't make it to Joe Val this weekend~ we did the Mardis Gras Ball with some friends from Ct.    Maybe you could give us some advice on the flights & so forth on getting out to Telluride.  Wave

Thanks~ Missy & Scotto     Cheers

You might check into flying into Montrose via Denver and either take the shuttle to Telluride or rent a car. It's the closest airport to Telluride unless you want to fly ino Telluride directly from Denver, but I've heard it's like a scary amusement park ride. The plane has to come down sharply and actually come in sideways just before it straightens out to land, and the end of the runway drops off a cliff. EEK!
You can get information about the shuttle here.

How long is the ride from Denver? We were talking about maybe coming in early & driving from Denver so we could see some of the state, as we have never been out there & hearit is gorgeous. But I am completely clueless about time frame & miles.   Rolleyes      Thanks

It's about a six hour drive from Denver, and the scenery depends on which route you take. The more scenic the longer the drive, but could be worth it. I've never taken 285, but I hear it's the most scenic route to take. Hope that helps. Flower

Hey Matt,

The last couple of years we've flown into Denver and spent the weekend before the fest in Boulder, then head off and do some camping, hiking, rafting for 2-3 days before rolling into town on Wednesday.

Rogin is out this year (and they say getting hitched won't affect your social life - actually maybe they say the opposite) but I will be with several other UR folks and some people from Eugene, OR.

We usually left of sound board near the hula hoopers in front of the path  towards the stage. Who is going out with you?

I think some more Nightgrass is in store this year.

Did he end up getting a bluegrass band for his wedding?  :-)

Not sure who is going out at this point.  Tough tickets (I need a Town Park).  It could be just me, meeting up with my Town Park regulars and all you all.  Cheers

Where in the Boston area?   Do you go to the Greyfox Bluegrass Fest in NY?
I'm curious how you do the TBF camping when you have to fly out.  It sounds like we do the same type of camping at greyfox~ w/ the kitchen,bar & common areas.  I can't possibly bring all that on the plane EEK!   
I feel that we must know some of the same folks that run in the NE bluegrass community & like to party!  Cheers    Let me know!
