Well, i left home driving by the San Francisco Bay, considered an
extension of the Pacific, and on the way home drove across a bridge
over the Delaware Bay, considered an extension of the Atlantic. I
also passed through 19 different states.

Well, it wasn't home to me. Perhaps after another time or two, with
less rain :-)

Well, there were so many days of rain... far more than i heard was
usual (whatever "usual" is for Pennsic). Even before i left Cooper's
Lake i threw away the cotton drop cloth i use as my pavilion floor
over my "ubiquitous blue tarp" and i've got some mildewed stuff that
i will have to replace (i got to wash it in hot water and bleach at
my cousin's house in Columbus Ohio on the 15th, so it isn't still
And while i know it's usually hot and humid at Pennsic, is it usually
so suffocatingly humid? Sometimes i was partially "blinded" even if i
wasn't moving, because sweat was pouring off my face, and the salty
liquid kept getting in my eyes.
I had fun working for Devra for two afternoons. And besides Stefan
and Ranvaig I actually saw a number of listees, such as Jadwiga, even
though i didn't get to say hello.
However, i never saw a Tuchuk... so my experience wasn't quite complete...
Maybe next year...
