My very first event was Elfsea Defender back in ... 90? 91? (It was at Keller's Camp, and there was a wonderful Culture Camp competition.)
There, I had one of those few moments where one feels truly transported. I awoke early to visit the privy, and as I walked along the trail, enwrapped in my cloak, I was enshrouded by fog rolling in off the Brazos river, and I could see the twinkling lights of tiki torches, lighting the path, the entire length of the way to the privy. There were still a few valiant drummers from Rolling Thunder playing softly in the early pre-dawn, and I could smell the campfires. A lone early riser was just starting coffee. This is still one of my favorite SCA memories.
The best things about the cooler weather, I think, is getting to wear a cloak and smelling pecan wood smoke.
