Nomadness Gathering AZ

December 21, 2021 - January 3, 2022

On the South side of Arizona Exit 1 adjacent to the truck stop is a traffic circle.
Take the traffic circle exit entering the paved frontage road that runs back along Eastbound Interstate 10, away from truck stop.
Go 3.0 miles to Nomadness Gathering turnoff.
Paved road from traffic circle ends at right curve at 0.7 miles; continue on staying to the right past Y intersection at gravel plant at 1.4 miles. Up and down a couple small hills curving around then straight you may see a 5-way dirt/gravel road intersection -continue straight.
Once you see the 2 big blue dumpsters there will be a blue shirt tied to a tree on the right 0.8 miles from dumpsters.
This is the turnoff.
Single campers, families, and fulltime overnight generator people and those preferring solitude often park dispersed by the main road area.
Jewelry and other handmade craftspeople often park on the road into and towards main camp.
Musicians may find camping near or past main camp appealing.
This is the same location as the past years Nomadness Gatherings and last years Schooliepalooza.

Just a couple thoughts about
NoMadNess Gathering
Dec 21 thru Jan 3
Consider this the first of a couple near term feedback planning sessions. Advice is always requested.
Location is still tentatively Ehrenburg Mesa’s although until we may scout the location a week out then again 2 to 3 days early this is not 100% so be aware of changes as events approach. The desert dwellers this year may triple last year’s crowd who knows.
FIREWOOD Has anyone who is currently locared near Qzite or Ehrenburg seen any box firewood dealers yet?
The first big event is Ehrenburg Thanksgiving–will be a super event everyone should attend.
In a few days I’ll post a sub-camp location map for Nomadness musicians, artists, generator all night areas, family, center fire circle ..
Always subject to change like herding cats.
It is quite possible another organization becomes a co-partner, owner by osmosis of the Nomadness Gathering time period maybe this year and into the future.
How do you all feel about this prospect?
I have spoke with Karylee and she is cool.
An alternative would be for someone like Greg Scott or Tyll Hertsens to take over.. or anyone.
