The annual Suwannee Springfest at The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL is right around the corner! If you have not looked into it, you should drop everything and make plans right now! One of my favorite things about this festival is the primitave camping spots where you can just drive your truck right next to your site. After you are done with setup, you can even keep your truck close to you! A gold cart would not be such a bad idea either!
