RANCHSTOCK III ! Kinney Creek Ranch is up a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) road, to the north of Highway 40, between about 5 miles west of Granby and two miles east of Hot Sulphur Springs. If you head west from Granby on Highway 40, look for mile marker 205, then go 7 tenth of a mile (.7 mile) further, and the turn will be on your right. Its marked Kinney Creek Road. Watch for two white barns and one red barns on the left, south side of the road. If you hit mile marker 204 or Hot Sulphur Springs, you've gone too far. No worries, turn around, look for mile marker 204, and it will be .3 mile further on your left. Once you've made the turn, head up the road (its a graded dirt road, should be fine in any kind of car). Go maybe a mile? or so till you see a driveway heading up to a modern looking funky earthship on the right--that's the house belonging to our nice neighbors, the Laura and Duncan Hagar. Don't bother them, please. On the left is a driveway heading to our other nice neighbors house. Don't take either of these driveways, just keep on driving about a hundred yards further till you see a big old "Kinney Creek Ranch" sign on the left. Can't miss it. If nothing else works listen for the music! August 8, 9 and 10 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) 2014, up at Kinney Creek Ranch (our ranch) between Hot Sulphur Springs and Granby on the way to Steamboat Springs Three days of peace, live music, dancing, yoga, mountain biking, camping, hiking, face painting, kickball, frisbee golf, potato sack races, and whatever else you, your families, friends, kids, toddlers, cousins, and whoever else feel like doing. All on 27 acres of idyllic (or at least really nice) ranchland, pine trees, and aspen groves nestled at the base of the Music Mountains outside of Hot Sulphur Springs Colorado. We've done this two years running, and we are all having a blast. We have had up to probably two hundred people--moms, dads, kids, dancers, musicians, and anyone who likes music in the mountains--up here for a really special weekend. So we are going to keep this going. And growing. For 2014, we have a really fun three day weekend planned. We'll have a some great live bands playing sets, sing-a-longs for the kids, lots of open jams for you musicians and wanna-be musicians (with tambourines and shakers and washboard and extra congas available for you yet-to-be discovered percussionists). Games and hikes for kids, mountain bikes for adults, and food and fun for everyone. And, this year, a special treat--we are working with the Hot Sulphur Springs Art Council to bring up some local artisans and craftsmen to display and sell their wares. Here's what we got lined up so far: Full Belly, a super talented dance band from Boulder who's been featured on "MTV Real World Denver", but more importantly are just an amazingly great spirited group, is headlining Saturday night. Claddagh, a nationally recognized Irish Band from Granby, Colorado will be providing an evening of high energy traditional Irish music on Saturday Eve. Doc Haze, a jamming acoustic Band from the Front Range, is headlining Friday evening. Other great bands include the Sasquatch Mountain Project, Grand County's best bluegrass; Denver rock 'n rollers the Inablers, Golden, Colorado jammers High Parkway. DJ Norm with the Awareness Center 4 Excellence, an organization in Granby dedicated to finding new ways to help educate and inspire children, will be DJ-ing the "Funk Fest" on Saturday, with funky music to get everyone dancing. There are rumours that the long-awaited (feared?) reunion of rockabilly legends the Lonesome Truckers will take place sometime that weekend. And there may even be a special appearance by Dan Peterson and his All-Star Truck-Stop Dog Band. Finally, we will close out the weekend with a set of inspirational Gospel from legendary Hammond organ virtuoso Dave Naples on Sunday morning. Is that enough for you? Well wait up, we got lots more planned. There will be arts and crafts Local artisans displaying their wares for your viewing and buying pleasure. There will be morning yoga. There will be hula hooping There will be three legged races, potato sack races, facepainting and kickball for kids. There will be mountain biking and hiking in the BLM and Forest Service land surrounding the ranch, and wading and splashing in the gentle waters of Kinney Creek. There will be handcrafted homemade brew. (Hopefully.) There will be a disc golf (frisbee golf) course set up. There will be time to contemplate the vastness of the universe late at night, as the stars shine brightly down from the inky black sky. Time for navel gazing in the peaceful aspen groves. Sound like fun? Then put Ranchstock on your calender! Put Ranchstock on your friends' calenders! And join us for the entire three days, the weekend, or just one fantastic day--its all good! This is a free event. We are hoping to expand this in the future to make it more of a fundraiser for local charities, but for now we are keeping this a free fun weekend for a lot of fun people. (However you are encouraged to chip in to defray expenses, if you feel so inclined. Any excess funds collected will go to local charitable organizations. If you are planning on staying (we hope you are!) you will need to camp at the Ranch or get lodging in Hot Sulphur Springs or Granby. Up at the ranch there is a big space on the plateau for camping trailers or Winnebagos or whatever. Down near the barn there is lots of space for tents. Also, up the road about a 1/2 mile or so there are forest service group camping sites for you wanting to get a little farther away from everything. We also have a bunkhouse where people who don't have tents can crash, and if it comes down to it you can always sleep in the barn, or under the stars. As far as lodging goers, Hot Sulphur Springs is only 2 miles away and has some nice inexpensive motels (that take dogs even). See the "Lodging" link for more info. A far as food goes, we will be having a group dinner Saturday night. You can join us for the group dinner, or cook your own vittles, or journey 3 miles to Hot Sulphur Springs or 8 miles to Granby for dinner. See the "Vittles" link for more info. We are also hoping to organize a Sunday brunch, to accompany our Sunday morning gospel session. Dogs are welcome, as long as they are not any more obnoxious than my giant sheepdog Hector. (That's a pretty low bar.) If you are a musician or know a musician with an interest in playing, or a dancer or yoga instructor, or kickball coach or other talented individual, or you simply feel like helping out in making this happen, please give me a call or drop me line. We want to make this your event! C'mon, join us!! Help us make something special here! Again!! Peace Love and Rock & Roll!!
