  • Rustler’s Valley is FANTASTIC!!!
    I was blessed and fortunate enough to have lived very near to this magical place for more than ten years, and went to many of their Easter and New Years festival.
    I am now living in dreary Surrey, England, and during these cold, wet British seasons, my technicolor dreams are of Rustlers…
    ‘ A circle of friends, a starlit sky, my first experiences of the chemical smile…’
    May the Goddess bless and protect Rustler’s Valley and all her children

    See you all very soon!!! Jake
