02:41 pm - Nuts.
I just found out that I can't make a couple of festivals.

I have vacation scheduled for Trillium (April 21-24, Cross Junction, Virginia), Desert Magic (May 5-8, Tucson, Arizona), Wellspring (May 26-30, Sherman, New York), Summerland (August 26-28, Yellow Springs, OH), and Walking With Fire (November 22-27, Vienna, Austria).

But I don't get to go to a couple of key ADF festivals, like Fall Fest (Sept. 15-18, Pennsylvania) or Three Realms (dates tentative, California), nor can I attend Modron's Gate (Sept. 22-25, Texas) or Elysium (neither of which is an ADF festival), either. Each of these festivals happens to fall within about a 4-week area in which I'm not allowed any vacation. The students get back on campus on Sept. 18, which means that we have to be ready for them, and we have to be available for them. I was also disappointed to see that Muin Mound Madness was cancelled for this year. Perhaps next year?

It doesn't really bother me that work keeps me here for that four week period (it's my job after all), but I really want to go to Fall Fest someday, and Three Realms has been high on my list for years. I heard about Modron's Gate last year, and it looked like an amazing festival. I've been to Elysium once, but it's the people who draw me back. But none of those is appearing to be in the schedule this year. Well, Three Realms still might, if it's scheduled on the right weekend.

Anyone want to go to a few of these festivals with me?

I'm likely going to Summerland as long as 1) it isn't the weekend before finals (I don't know when SU05 finals are) and 2) I'm not in England. :)

It is the weekend before finals, but you'll go anyway. Even if you have to fly back from England.

I will, will I? That sounds pretty darn authoritative. *grin* Guess I'll have to line those damn coconuts with fleece after all...

There was the hope, but in the end, I roped myself into an idea that I needed to have presented in person at Wellspring (more on that eventually, I'm sure), and there's nothing to be done about that :)

*sighs* But I'd really, really like to go. I much preferred Wellspring not on a holiday weekend.

Hey, do you have a weblink for the Heartland Pagan Festival handy?

Err....I can't imagine too many folks would be terribly keen on the idea of a regional festival the same weekend as Wellspring, especially if it's the same region that the group that hosts Wellspring happens to be in.

And if you tried that I'd have to kick your ass. :)

I think there's some confusion in the term "Heartland," which is the name of the region of ADF that includes Ohio, etc. Yeah, if the ADF Heartland Region scheduled a festival opposite Wellspring... well, it wouldn't happen.

Yep, I misread & misunderstood as well.

Weird factoid-- while Wellspring is held in NY State, the group that hosts the event is in OH. My Grove is about halfway between them both & we're in PA. Hence why we sometimes refer to this as "The Tri-state area". :)

I only get 12 days off this year, so I've been toying with the idea of skipping PSG in favor of something different. But I'm not sure if there's any paganish fest I'd rather do instead.

It would be nice to make it to Comfest again though.

Never been to a festival. It'd be nice if they were free. XD
Are you not goinmg to do a booth at Renfaire, then? IT's on May 7 this year.

I know. This will be the first renfest I've missed.

I'll just have to hold some hot chic's hands at Desert Magic to make up for it.

FYI, the festivals usually aren't that expensive, unless you go for PSG or one of the longer ones. The ADF festivals are usually quite reasonable. Check the weblinks to get a fix on price.

At the moment, there's room in the car.

Ours is free... but you gotta fly to Austria to get to it. ;-D
