‘Road to Camp Bisco’ – Joe Marchitto
I’m 21 and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis four years ago, I was a little down and unmotivated to really exercise every day or be adventurous, but Camp Bisco 10 changed all of that…
Camp Bisco 10 – Never Had a Home Like this…
My left leg is a little screwy and after walking 1/4 of a mile I am traveling a little faster than turtle speed. I had never imagined it was going to be as big as it was, or that the majority of people I’d meet would be some of the most genuine, exceptional people I would ever meet. Swarms of friendly people, just there to have a great time, immediately helped me up any time I tripped or fell. After meeting so many excellent people and experiencing good vibes all around, I felt like I could do anything.
Dirty Paris, Shpongle, the Disco Biscuits, Wolfgang Gartner, Run DMT, Ratatat, Beats Antique, The New Deal and Lotus just to name a few, were phenomenal! It was a fantastic experience hearing so many different genres of music (including a few new ones) and staying up all night dancing and watching the sunrise to friends singing and playing guitar camped next to you.
On the last morning watching everyone pack their things, hug and say goodbyes to new friends, my eyes started to tear up. I’m sure many of you know, words just can’t explain how amazing Camp Bisco is :D.
Now I’m working out, eating well, and exercising every day; I’m still pretty slow, but I walked about 10 miles in those 3 days and twisted my ankle 28 times, – now I’m determined I can do whatever I want.
Fan for Life
When I first bought my ticket I was planning on that being my first and last Camp Bisco, I’m happy to say that absolutely cannot be. I love you Camp Bisco, and I can’t wait for XI(and XII, XIII, XIV…), this summer I’m excited to make some more friends and meet up with old ones, and I don’t mind waiting for the lineup because honestly, whoever they get to play, its going to be fantastic.
