As many of you can imagine, us Petersen siblings stay pretty busy. Between a minimum of four shows a week, high school, college, grad school, and working at our schools (yay for free tuition and no school debt!) we don’t have a lot of time that’s not strictly scheduled out. Four years ago we started doing this thing we called the #sibtrip. The #sibtrip is a vacation for the siblings that has absolutely no agenda. We take ourhammocks, instruments, and a map and drive wherever we feel like for a week. We have ended up in Ohio for some roller coasters at Cedar Point, we have busked on the streets of Boulder, Colorado, gone camping and rafting in Poudre Canyon, spent the day in Washington D.C., spent some nights in the Smokey Mountains, and even enjoyed some great bluegrass at the Station Inn in Nashville. This year we have broken code a little and have the first part of our trip mapped out, but we are pretty excited about it. We are traveling to Canada to play bluegrass at some churches and the Frenchman River Gospel Jam. After the festival we will take our hammocks, instruments, and trusty van and drive wherever the wind takes us! Or sun….hammocking usually works best when it’s dry outside (we figured that out the hard way on #sibtrip2015). We would love for you all to follow our journey and we will be using the hashtag #sibtrip2016 on Instagram. Follow The Petersens to keep up with all that we’re doing!
