The Gathering – getting there

    Howdy! I’m a young gal from Australia thinking about buying a ticket to The Gathering because the values of this community resonate so strongly with me. I plan on backpacking America/South America this year so I’m thinking maybe I should begin my trip with this event – only problem is – I have no idea how I would get there – is there any chance anyone is also thinking about going alone and looking for a car pool buddy that lives close to an international airport? Thank you and much love!

    WELCOME to the jungle, Frances! 🤠 I’m keeping my eye on this thread. If nothing else comes up, please let me know. You are welcome to stay with me, as well. I have an extra room with it’s own bath. I’m next to Joshua Tree National Park! Palm Springs International Airport is the closest to me. There’s a lot of us all over California.

    Hi Frances! Yes! I live close to PDX (Portland International Airport in Portland, OR). It’s a good full days drive down, but you’re welcome to join me! I imagine there are many coming up from LAX (Los Angeles) and San Fran too which are MAJOR airports, so see what comes!

    What an amazing journey!

    Hey Frances! Just so you and everyone going to The Gathering knows, we’re going to create a sub-group of The Gathering group strictly devoted to Carpooling as that’s a huge thing for this event and many people did it last year. I’ll get it up ASAP!

    Howdy! Last year I flew into Bakersfield- (I live in Iowa), my friend picked me up, and Cielos was really close from there, only an hour-ish. Bakersfield airport is so tiny and easy easy easy. We stopped on the way and picked up a $30 tent roomy enough for 3 ppl. 🙂

    Frances – get your ticket! You are guaranteed to be thrilled that you did so, and you’ll feel this immediately upon entering the grounds. For real. Your new community is waiting for you. <3 I went last October for the first time and I literally can’t imagine missing another one everrrrr! And I love your adventurous spirit, backpacking and all!

    Following this thread. Not sure what I’ll do yet for transportation this year, so…here we go!

    Thank you everyone for your kind offers and encouragement! After hearing everyone’s praise about how amazing the previous events were I took the plunge and bought a ticket! I’m so excited 🤠 Now I just need to hope and pray that the US starts letting in people without the experimental injection – supposedly they are meant to remove that requirement in May…
