National Rainbow Gathering 2011 Part 1
m.examiner.com | Jun 23rd 2011 7:53 PM As the sun sets north of Portland tonight travelers from around the globe are all flowing into the small town of Woodland, WA to begin their final trek to the National Rainbow Gathering being held in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Many do not know how to take this unexpected rise in visitors in this small town. When it comes to a Rainbow Gathering though, it is safe to say that no one has ever seen anything like this before, and no one really knows how to take it. Every gathering is its own and different experience. There is virtually no schedule, no competition, no cell phones, no reason to worry about anything but the present. The first best thing to do if you plan on attending is to bring an open mind. The next best thing to do if you are planning to attend the gathering is come prepared with a little extra. There is still snow at the site and there are some who arrived with little resources and only the clothes on their back. Travelers are using such resources as www.craigslist.com and www.facebook.com to connect and organize carpools, For more information on the history of the Rainbow Gathering and directions to the gathering visit http://www.welcomehome.org . Positive Vibes Only Please!
