|Gathering of the Vibes 2010 - Deep Banana Blackout|
Deep Banana Blackout played the late show for the first time since we've been coming to Gathering of the Vibes, and what a party it was, from 1:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. You needed to have a camping wrist band to get to the Green Vibes Stage. Lauren gives 3 Twifties Tips on how to stay up late for parties here. See the episode where she loses (but then finds) her backpack, and also see Twifties Tips for Music Festivals at Gathering of the Vibes 2010 with Umphrey's McGee and Keller Williams and the Rhythm Devils.

|Hiking the Best Part of the Appalachian Trail|
Thru-hiker Dusty a.k.a. Particle hand-picked the yummiest part of the Appalachian Trail for this tenderfoot to hike for three days and guided us. We hiked in Shenandoah National Park, in Virginia, and we agree this was a perfect spot for a casual hiker to taste almost everything the Trail has to offer, minus the despair. First day, hiked 8 miles from Big Meadows Campground to Skyland, then made friends and got a lift back to the campground. Next day, we drove to and parked at Skyland, and hiked 6 miles to the Byrd's Nest 3 shelter for a backwoods overnight. Next day we hiked 4 miles to the rest area at Thornton's Gap and then caught a ride back to the car at Skyland. Don't miss the famous and delicious blackberry milkshakes in Shenandoah. And don't forget to purchase a camping pass. Video by Lauren Traub Teton exclusive for Twifties.TV.
The hiking shoes mentioned are the Asics Gel Trabucos. "If you want the perfect pair of trail runners, look no further than the Asics Gel-Trabuco's." says Michael Lanza in Backpacker Magazine, April 2009. Read the full review here.
