|08:41 am - PSG|
So, I'm thinking about maybe going to Pagan Spirit Gathering next year. Over the past couple of years I've kind of avoided it because it's not an ADF festival, and I don't really care much for non-ADF festivals. Well, there's also the fact that it's expensive as all hell, and I'm not sure I can get the time off to spend a week with a bunch of naked pagans in the woods. . .
I seem to recall that it runs about $180 or something like that, which is a lot. But Brian and I were talking last night, and there's something we'd really like to present on, and I'd like to talk to people from a more broad Pagan community.
But the biggest problem? It's during the first week of summer quarter. Vacation is majorly limited that week.
*sighs* But, tentatively, Brian and I are planning to go.
Now I just need to find out who to talk to regarding doing a workshop. Their website could really use an update.

Numbers are fun.
's math, Summerland is $50.00. The "plus $40.00 for logding" spoken of is if you want an entire cabin to yourself, which I am sure you are aware of having been to Summerland. As you camp in a tent (which I know for a fact) that is really not an issue for you. That makes it a low $16.66 per day.
According to the PSG website for the year 2004, registration was at $250 for a late registration which made it $35 per day, which is more than Summerland (even at Summerland's late registration of $60.00). If you are correct that pre-registration for PSG was $180 that still makes it more expensive than Summerland ($25.71 a day).
Also, even if Summerland were to increase its length and keep to its current dollar per day average, its price would be less than even pre-registration for PSG at $116.66.
Personally, Mike, I'd recommend Starwood and it is only about a buck .60 more expensive than early registration at PSG and is loaded with great stuff. Just remember I expect you to visit in October-- after all, our event is free, just like this year was free (okay, so next year you have to buy a plane ticket but all food and lodging is still free). :)

Re: Numbers are fun.
plus, i believe the $40 for lodging is pretty standard at that site. i've been to a few events at camp clifton sponsored by different groups and that's been standard, so i assume it's a location or site charge rather than the organizations idea.
on my LJ i have my ideal summer tour, but i doubt it'll actually happen unless i get a grant to study large pagan festivals :/
