    Off to Western PA

    Hey, all!
    Just a note in anticipation of my trip this week- 2 weeks in Western PA near Butler and New Castle- (right across the interstate from Moraine State park), with a group that re-created the Middle Ages- Pennsic War for those of you familiar with the Society for Creative Anachronism. (www.sca.org)
    I will attempt to recruit new hangers by building and displaying (and using) a speer-type hammock made of "period" materials- ie canvas or heavy linen and manila rope!
    Wish me luck!
    Hugs to all, Betsy
    PS we are leaving Thursday around lunch-ish so any messages after that might not be read till my return, or whenever I can hi-jack a computer...

    hey betsy, that sounds exciting. i hope you'll take pictures... especially of your hammock experimentation.
    i believe there are several HF members in that general area. maybe they will see your post & chime in before you leave. ...tim
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

It looks huge but I have never been to the event.maybe I will have to go look at your hammck setup. Hope you have fun, Let me know if you need anything while you're up here in PA.

    Thanks very much! Try www.pennsicwar.org for more information. unfortunately they charge you at the gate for the full event- no day by day prices.. I will get some digital photos and post them to the archives when I get back; you are forewarned that there will be funny clothing on display...
    You all have fun while I'm gone, Betsy
