Topics: Tent, Campsite, Camping
The concert was amazing, very chill and relaxed setting. The weather was perfect the entire weekend with mild temperature and plenty of sunshine. The festival was not extremely crowded, bathrooms and tent grounds had plenty of room. Camped on Grandfather Mountain Campgrounds, a truly badass place at the base of the mountain. An icon of Western North Carolina, Grandfather soars to almost 6,000 feet in elevation, a major peak in the Blue Ridge. No problems throughout the festival, ran smoothly. Railroad Earth killed it every night, great lights and awesome sound. Energy of the crowd was amazing, everybody had high spirits. Nobody at the festival missed Railroad Earth when they came out to play. A band I knew very little about blew me away. One of my favorite bands now from the MOMT 2012. Railroad Earth is the ultimate highlight of the festival, three days of them was almost not enough. Dr. Dog played on friday, awesome band. They started the festival off right giving the crowd great energy. One of my favorite bands at the concert, brought plenty of people in front of the stage to dance. Dr. Dog and Futurebirds sounded different than most of the other bands. The other bands had more of a bluegrass sound. Dr. Dog and Futurebirds sounded more rock, both very good. Futurebirds struck me as a little grunge with great sound. The flag hanging off one of Futurebirds guitars was awesome. The food was awesome, pizza and quesadillas become a favorite of mine. A small amount of food vendors, small tents with clothing and hammocks for sale. Oh yeah, No BEER tent. Strange thing for a music festival to have no alcohol for sale. The mood of the festival was very relaxed and chill. People lounging around on the grass with plenty of room to listen to great music. Cooking and camping outside of the stage area was a fun time. Get to the festival early if you want a secluded camp spot! Great weekend that I will never

    It was the weekend; Fridays were my favorite day of the week, not only was it a break from school for 3 days, but it also meant we were going to my second home, “Town and Country”, aka the campground. At the age of 7, I always had to walk home from school, so it made the anticipation of going to the campground double. I was finally home from school, run upstairs, and get my things together to go camping. I would a select few items of clothing, clothes I know I would be getting mud on. The car was…

    The Pigeon River State Forest Campground, while a nice little rustic campground, was definitely a stark contrast to quiet of the trail. Families cooking on grills and bathing suit clad campers carrying inflated tubes were all bustling around, enjoying the nice (hot) weather and the cool water. One such family stopped me to talk, they had a young Aussie at home. They were curious about Mira's pack and decided that their energetic four-legged family should start carrying their own trail goodies…

    your face, my grandfather. He had taught me several life long lessons that I hope to use everyday during my life and teach my children later on in their childhood. My grandfather was not a very wealthy man but if any family/friend asked for a favor my pap was there to give his assistance where it was needed. My grandfather was nothing but short of a simple-minded man, and one would either see him walking or riding around on his motorized scooter. Over the nine years my grandfather was in my life…

    My Grandfather Someone that has made an impact on my life would have to be my grandpa. If it wasn’t for my grandpa I don’t think that I would know the stuff that I know today, or even gotten as far as I am today. My grandpa plays one of the biggest roles in my life today. He’s not only my grandfather, but my dad. Growing up from day one my real father was not there for me or for my mom. So as I grew up I had to do a lot of stuff on my own rather than me doing it with my dad. That put a huge effect…

    Grandfathers Appreciation The year was 1982. I was just eight years old, not a care in the world other than how late I can stretch out my play time on a school night. I longed for the weekends because I could stay out until the street lights came on! At this particular time, videogames weren’t the mainstay of child entertainment. My friends and I relied on good ole physical activity in the lines of sports and bicycles to pass our time. Anything that kept me from my daily routine of fun and…

    my brother, sister, and I each had to talk to our grandfather and practice speaking Korean. I remember turning over in my bed to face the wall so that my father couldn't see that I was awake. Even though I tried my best to feign a deep slumber, his stern voice commanded me to wake up and set a good example for my younger siblings. Groaning, I would stumble over to the telephone and mumble a couple of memorized phrases, knowing that my grandfather always said the same thing to me: "Work hard at your…
