Dirty, tired, sun burned - and never had a better time!

Note to self: next time we go to war, bother to dig out a watch. This digging for the cell phone in your pouch all the time is annoying - made all the more so once the batteries died. ;-D

We're back in the car heading back to the future. We had such a spectacular time! The weather could not have been better. Well, those who were there for the deluge that came down Monday night, flattening nearly all tents, have something else to say about that. And those that weren't there then, had some nasty travel stories. Like the two who got stuck for 6 hours outside of Flagstaff because some idiot drove too fast in the snow and proceeded to cause 4 semis to jack-knife in order to avoid killing him. Their answer to the predicament? Was to see the silver lining in the fact they were on their way to an SCA event and thus had essentially a mobile household with them.

Anyways, we came so late that we had perfect road conditions, and other than the stiff breeze that made setting up our tent a 4 person job, the weather could not have been better. The company was grand, and the activities were so plentiful that we really didn't get to half of what we wanted to.

I'll leave it at that, for now. (I feel a nap creaping up on me). Trust that many more stories and pics are yet to come!

I didn't think they had watches in Medieval times?

LOL! I am glad, they had cell phones back in the day, though! Or maybe you could carry a sundial around with you! :D :D

Good to see that you are back and had a great weekend! Looking forward to the pics!
I am curious, to see the tent, too! Do you all have middleages like tents, too?
