Muddy Boot Festival 2011

Here’s a recap from the Muddy Boot Festival last weekend – I shared a booth with acupuncturist Leela Longson and Naturopath Shani Fox.

What fun! I met a lot if cool people, visited with some of my clients, and scored some cool goodies, more on that later….

It was plenty hot but luckily we had shade (thanks Leela!) and the classes were being held indoors in the a.c.

On Saturday I was super busy with massages.  I heard some great music from the Freak Mountain Ramblers.

KBOO was there as well.  If you haven’t tuned in to the boo check out the schedule here.  Their Saturday lineup includes country, bluegrass, the dead and the blues.

Sunday the music continued with Sugarcane who covered the Talking Head’s “This Must Be The Place” one of my favorite songs!

Casey Neil and the Norway Rats closed the show and their set included a cover of Toots and the Maytals “Pressure Drop”

Our next door neighbor was Haley with Chiyu Confections.  I sampled some of her delicious mushroom and herb infused chocolate truffles.  She sells her goodies at Peoples Farmer’s market year round.

I also met Nate from Enviofuel.  He converts your Diesel rig to run on vegetable oil.  And yes his truck smells like french fries.

Hopworks was there with cold beers.  I waited til almost five on Sunday before cracking an IPA, I had to have something to go with my pizza from TasteBud!  I also scored a bottle of Organic Syrah from Klickitat Winery.

I sampled Lion Heart Kombucha watermelon flavor and was surprised at how mild it was.  This is a good brand for first timers or those who don’t like the vinegary taste of Kombucha.


I signed up for renewable energy with PGE and NW Natural and got some mineral sunscreen from Schmidt’s BeautyTruce Designs had these really cool bags locally made from recycled materials like old sails.  I loved the design elements and weatherproof factor of the bike bags and large duffels – perfect for travel.   The best booth prize goes to Tracey and Sara from Living room Realtors who had a couch to relax on.
