Or, my little SCA vacation. 🙂
After a hectic beginning, I finally got on the road around 1pm. As I drove up HWY 69, I could see the smoke from the Hayden Pass Fire. The blackened ridges and smoke were reminiscent of the fire on the Spanish Peaks three years ago. The fire blocked part of my route as well, so I had to drive a slightly longer route. Missed two turns, but neither was bad. I got to Rapier camp, set up and then reported to the Hammered Eagle kitchen. Dinner was good, clean-up easy and then it was off to the Bardic Circle. That was a hoot! Stories, songs and jokes. Syr Teigr and the Beer Truck was my favourite.
Saturday. I was glad to get up! It had been cold that night. I helped with breakfast and lunch, and then off to photograph classes, sit with friends and then Court! A lot of my friends from Aarquelle got scrolls. 🙂 it was a very happy court. Afterwards, we had a hasty dinner and then over 120 of us headed off to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. This one was great. The sulfur heavy ones make me ill. I rode up with Falnor, Axgar and his girlfriend, and Kata. It was a fun ride and I really enjoyed the hot spring.
Sunday. Up to help with breakfast and then off to classes. I packed up after lunch and headed home around 2pm. The drive was easy. Less smoke as the fire had lessened. Dan helped me unpack after we had some dinner. I think I was asleep by 10pm. Fantastic weekend.
