The road trip blog has returned only a few weeks after I ended my Route 66 trip. This time I am headed to my favorite place on earth, the terrifying and amazing Gathering of the Juggalos! The Gathering is a horrifying music festival in the middle of nowhere filled with insane clowns, naked fat girls and Faygo covered drug crazed juggalos. Photographically there is no place better in the world.
This is my fourth year in a row and today I am flying to St. Louis before hitching a ride with Jason Shaltz as we head into the middle of no where. Cave In Rock is on the bank of the Ohio River in southern, IL on the Kentucky border. It’s three hours from any major city and the closest town with a hotel is an hour away. They are cutting back on press again this year and there is no press tent and no cell service so I might only be able to update the world when I get back to my “hotel” every night. I put hotel in quotes because I am staying at a cabin in a religious retreat 45 minutes away from the Gathering. Good times.
Hopefully I will be able to update this every night Thursday-Saturday with a few pictures and things before getting some serious posts up next week. Here are some highlights from years past. Get excited!
