Sep 5, 2014 by     No Comments    Posted under: Blog


Sometimes, vacations could come off as boring, general, common and repetitive. One would want something that is distinct from any other getaway that anybody else does during the summer. Summertime, as well, gives the teenagers and the young adults that sense of freedom, an opportunity to have the time of their lives and celebrate the ending of a stressful, school semester or school year that they wish to go somewhere and unleash the enthusiasm that they have been saving since school started. What better way to have the most fun, the most exciting and the most unforgettable summer escapade than spending it with your friends at a quality place, a remote place if you will, where you will get to experience something that not everybody has the privilege of experiencing. Best part is, if anyone would hear about this summer vacation of you and your friends, I would bet my life on it if those who hear about it won’t feel an ounce of envy and would wish to go there themselves. Bragging rights are definitely a compliment on the most fun any group of friends could ever have during the summer! Now, let me introduce you to the most exclusive, the most elite, and the coolest summer getaway in the world! Welcome to the Powellooza!

The main idea for the event is giving the participants the maximum tolerance of their joy while living up to their freedom. Freedom from thesis papers, freedom from demands relating to work, freedom from parents who track down their every move, and freedom from those nerve-racking professors that compel them to make countless assignments and study for long quizzes. Basically, the event is established so that those people who miss a lot of fun during the stressful months would unleash their constraints here when they were deprived of such back home. Powellooza has been famous to these individuals through social media, through the videos (like that above) that are just plain and simple: jaw-dropping, give the watchers a taste of jealousy for not having to participate and through enticing stories from people who have actually attended the event. Rest assured that when you do come along the trip, you will be documented by the ones who arrange it where you will get to play the documentaries all over again until you grow older and remember the most fun times of any summer vacation that you have ever been to.

On one of the videos of Powellooza in You Tube, one fan commented this: “Although that I am from a third world country and I will never have the chance to have fun and enjoy life as much as these people do, although that my youth will be wasted without having one moment of such happy joy, I am glad that there are humans whom their luck was so fortunate to allow them to have what I have been denied.” Sounds tragic, doesn’t it? Now let me ask you, since summer is getting closer, would you allow yourself to feel the same way as the person who commented this on You Tube? Of course not! So, what are you waiting for? Participate in the most fun and exciting summer event that will last you a lifetime! But, before you do that, let me tell you a little more about this incomparable Powellooza.

Powellooza is an annual event that occurs at Lake Powell in Arizona during the summer break. About a hundred and fifty young people attend the event and get together for an awesome time that lasts for three days. It’s also about twenty miles away from departure point aboard a boat in going to a secluded small island where you can just sit back and relax, party the night away, or engage in the most exhilarating and exciting water sports ever invented. Ever necessity from food and water are provided for the bunch and you can even camp out by the waters or sleep in your own houseboats. I don’t know about you but that is just simply amazing for a summer vacation with friends where you can just have the time of your lives without anybody telling you off or making you tone it down or even lower the music. When you’re here, it’s like you have your own world, do whatever you want and no one would ever disturb your tantrum of happiness.

Lake Powell is not as famous as that of the beaches in Bora Bora or the resorts in the French Alps or the remote islands in the Caribbean but it is absolutely the ideal place for a group of friends to have a blast. Usually, the people that come here are members of a religious group called Mormons. Some are the children of the rich and famous or those who own private yachts that will enable them to reach the remote area. These people, usually college students, come here to escape the school life, pack up their beers and their jet skis and just have a fun time. Since the area is surrounded by pristine waters, majestic brown boulders of hills or rocks as you might say, passage ways that lead to narrow corners perfect for exploring the different sides of Lake Powell, wide areas for water sports, and on top of that, absolutely breathtaking views, time spent here will definitely earn you a spot in the most envied young person in the planet.

During the night time, since it’s a remote place, there are no available post lamps or fluorescent lights that will brighten things up. Mostly, light emanating from your houseboats are the ones visible when things get dark. However, artificial lights aren’t that beautiful to accompany the starry, starry night right? Then comes one of the perks of this event. The people who come here initiate a bonfire where everyone will be passed with drinks around, party to the lively house or retro music and just have some fun! Amazing isn’t it? It’s either you can camp out near the bonfire and the waters or you can choose to sleep in your houseboats. The choice actually is entirely up to you. But, no matter what you choose as your sleeping quarters, the views of the area and the stars in the sky during night time is just absolutely charming and beautiful. You will most definitely feel that you are in paradise.
