Camp Bisco

Thank G-d we got a sponsor to get us into the festival. Friday we went to a private lake to dip in honor of Shabos, we parked the van on the side of the road, while we were dipping the police came, they told us they know the van well. First, from our arrival at Camp Bisco while we were trying to find a spot outside, I was driving kind of crooked trying to get the headlights on the street signs (festivals in the US don't compare to those in Israel, where the Tzadik take over the terrain, in the US a festival can go practically unnoticed) the police pulled us over, they were convinced that they would find drugs, it didn't take them long to find out that although we don't have drugs, we have stuff alot more powerful - Nanach. So the police told us that they had seen us, where we had parked to sleep the night before, so this was their 3rd encounter. Most of Camp Bisco is also quite aware of us. On shabbos I did a little dancing by one of their things, it wasn't long before I had a whole group, and I was awarded with a 'hot' sticker. There are a lot of Jews here, and a whole bunch are even somewhat shomer shabos, a lot of them stopped in our tent, and we had Kidush, cake, chips, etc.. There are also a lot of gentiles who are really tuned in. We gave out our fliers. Before coming to the festival we bought a camera, for various reasons we have very little footage of the festival, there are probably plenty of ways to see what took place, we sufficed with a short clip of how we set up camp. It might take some time till I can post the videos because I still have to buy a cord to connect the camera to my computer, and I also have to figure out how to edit them (nothing major, just cutting). Friday we first played Shivi Keller, a lot people appreciated it. Then after we pitched our tent, and Shurun finished playing his guitar, we put on Rabbi Nachman and I danced on the roof, it was very successful until someone ordered me down, not so bad as it began to rain shortly afterwards. It's not really such a great time to post, but I wanted to at least get some of the basics posted. Basically a lot of people were quite blown away by our appearance and presence which was greatly felt by the majority of the festival. On many of the things that happened we could say it was worth it just for that.
Na Nach!

Was it a Bas Kol that told you to get off the van and stop dancing? You mentioned how the rain came anyway-Perhaps it was a sign of a flood, hence the 'teva'/ark/word was calling?
