SoulFire – Southbay Decompression

A  few weeks ago MonkeyBoy and I went to
LA Decompression and we had
so much fun we decided to try it again.
So off we went to Soulfire, South Bay Burners Decompression in the foothills  near Santa Cruz, California. 
It was in the woods and close to home, the weather was in the 50s. and a little misty,
and there were going to be over 200 of us hanging  out together. 
I sometimes find the weather and dust difficult at [BM], so it looked to us
like a regional event might be a little more like a little holiday. And it certainly was!
There were cabins or yurts you could rent or you could camp in your camper or tent, there was a restaurant, hot tubs, tennis, ping pong, music until the wee hours of the morning, Art, Rangers, and all of us, a great start to the weekend.

So if you have been thinking about going to a Regionals Event check out the Regional page, click on the map and choose an adventure that might be closer to home, but with a group of like minded, radically self expressed, wonderful people.
