Jumpstart is super-excited to jumpstart their concept of mingling nature with music. This time we travel with singer, song-writer and actor, the versatile and talented Mr. Sidd Coutto.http://toughontobacco.in/
We have always worked at providing a wholesome experience in the outdoors while keeping the finer points of sustainability, conservation and responsible traveling in mind. We believe that music holds a great power of transcendence and when in the outdoors it can provide for a magical other-worldly experience. The Great Gig In The Sky is just that. It is an attempt at taking two of our most cherished experiences and combining them to provide a heady mixture of raw, unadulterated bliss.
The fourth gig is will take you to the shores of Bordi, a picturesque beach setting. Picture this – sitting in the warm sand watching the sunset over the Arabian Sea. A soft purr of the waves, warm soup and snacks and Sidd Coutto setting the mood as he plays a variety of musical instruments for his songs. Along with all this are sessions of Beach Birding, Valley Crossing and may be a dip in the ocean. We will be enjoying these activities on both days.
In short, the two days will provide camping at a Beach,Valley Crossing and above all Sidd’s gig. What better way to spend a weekend!
Unfortunately, we are constrained for space, we will have to limit the number of attendees to 30. Please please confirm and book at your earliest as more than half of the seats have already been booked and paid for.
NOTE: 1. Travel from Mumbai to Bordi and back would be by private bus. 2. The above costs also include Lunch, Snacks,Tea and Dinner on day one, Breakfast and Lunch on day two. 3. No alcohol will be provided at any point. 4. Participants under the age of 18 years will be required to get written consent from their parents / guardians. (Consent form will be mailed on request) 5. Railways, Forts, Temples, Dargahs, Caves, Forests have rules and regulations in addition to the laws of the land. Familiarizing oneself with the same will safeguard the participant from committing any violations. In any case, Jumpstart and it’s representatives shall not bear any liability towards the actions of the individuals and thereby their consequences, whatsoever.

One cannot live 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, 3 hours without shelter and 3 minutes without air. However, we have always (touch wood!) managed to get participants back home safe and sound. A large part of the credit goes to the participants who pack and do as mentioned under:
1. WATER: They always have at least 2 litres of water. They keep sipping water and replenishing their body reserves which are usually lost through perspiration and transpiration. This also keeps them happy and energetic.
2. SHOES: They check their shoes before the event for strength, grip and comfort. Old unused shoes usually don’t last for more than 30 minutes in the outdoors. Similarly, brand new shoes almost always result in shoe bites. Closed shoes protect their feet from pricks and bites. This helps them focus on having a good time rather than just facing the elements. They also carry slippers/flip-flops/sandals to be worn during rest time and travel.
3.CLOTHES: They wear comfortable clothes which allow them to stretch, climb and jump. Clothing is most effective when it covers your arms and legs from the sun, cold, pricks and bites. They usually carry extra clothes and a towel depending on the number of days the event is. We have observed that extra plastic bags are of great help when it comes to storing wet clothes.
4. FOOD: They get Chocolates, Chikki, Dry Fruits, biscuits, farsan, vadapav, samosa, salami, chicken sausages, roast lamb, etc… These items keeps them charged and energetic during the day. The food makes us happy too. PLEASE CARRY STUFF that can be warmed and eaten over a campfire.
5. SUN PROTECTION: They carry hats/caps, sunglasses and sunscreen and use them. This also reflects well in the numerous photographs that get clicked.
6. JACKETS / WINDCHEATERS: They prefer enjoying the outdoors warm and dry. YES it will be COLD.
7. SLEEPING BAGS: We have observed that participants use these sleeping bags in a variety of ways. We will however use these for sleeping at night. If you don’t have a sleeping bag, carry 2 thick bed-sheets/blankets.
8. TOILETRIES & MEDICINES: They say soap, toothpaste and toothbrush help keep a good hygiene. In addition they carry medicines that they commonly use to counter Asthama, allergies and other health issues that they may have.
9. ELECTRONICS: They carry cameras, torches, extra bulbs and batteries. They also make sure to have waterproof coverings to protect their belongings from moisture.
10. BACKPACK: They usually carry all their stuff on their backs keeping their hands free for things other than holding a bag.
11. TRASH BAG: They do not believe in littering and so they carry trash bags to carry all the wrappers, chewing gums, chips Packets, etc and dispose it off in the local Garbage Bin.
12. MOSQUITO REPELLENT: They just smiled when we asked them why. They did sleep very peacefully at night.
13. HUMOUR: Their sense of humour made it difficult for anything to dampen their spirits.
