So back to the birth of the "goat" thing... (long, as taken from the orginal forums unedited.)

I'm thinking were going to be ok with the rain until around 5pm.

You guys might want to hit that big gas station in Hudson and see if they have any of those really cheap ponchos.

We're almost gone...see you...more coffee.

Despite the sauna, and the dust bowls, a good time was had by all.
It was great meeting everyone "new"-and putting faces with names.

Baron-always a pleasure. Did you finish the scotch?

We had fun telling jokes, and stories around our make shift camp after faire and trying to stay dry between downpours.

Will post pictures as soon as I figure out how....unitl then, I am off to shower away faire dirt and grit.

Marietta Graziella

I think I'll be getting dust out of my hair for days but it was till fun!
Getting to meet face to face, supporting the new faire and laughing at the Baron when the rain poured off the canopy, right down his back at the camp ground. ;-)

We'll post our pictures, too. didn't get as many as we'd thought, but a few good ones.

Hugs all around!

Well I have to put out a huge THANKS to you all who were there and inviting me. I had a blast and yes my back hurts a bit from the maille but Id do it again in a heartbeat. It was great putting names to faces. It always makes a drives easier when you have a bunch of people with ya. Thanks for all the food too, I think Im still full!
I will gladly carpool with anyone again (well mebbe not the Baron) he makes me drink scotch :O jkjkjkjkjk.

Saturday was great! (Even with the dust devils and high temps) Always a good time when meeting new friends regardless of the situation. Too bad we didn't get to see the closing gate show, but the Baron put on a good enough show at camp regardless...

(don't worry Baron, I won't ban you...yet. )

Pics will be posted shortly...

We made it back to Duluth and have hosed down/washed all our belongings. I had an absolutely wonderful time meeting all of you and no the scotch was not finished as I believe the Baroness dug out the cover at 2/3 gone? Had a blast anyways into the wee hours.

(ok when i drink scotch with good friends, I always open the bottle and throw the cap away)


Awesome pics DB I was able to show my wife who I was all with. Thanks

Ohhh....did anybody get the number of that goat cart that hit me? Then stopped, backed up over me, and hit me again?
(Right there. That's how the goat thing started.)

It was great seeing everybody. Beating up on the poor crippled guy on the log was the highlight of my day along with being in the parade.

(edit add)
The guy on the log had cut his foot on a piece of glass this morning in the kitchen. It required seven stitches. As we were fighting he knew I was going to beat him and kept telling me I was beating up on a poor crippled guy. I kept telling him I paid a dollar to do just this.

This was the first time we've been camping and it was wonderful with all the sounds of nature around us. Special thanks to those screaming crows at 5 in the morning followed by that damn woodpecker. Ahhh nature.

I just realized I have no pictures of myself...not that it's a bad thing. Just curious to see how my "new look" came across...

Definitely a great time and meeting fun people! Great pics everyone, we didn't
take any that have come out. Must shower...must...shower, then I'll jabber
more no doubt.

Baron...that was the Camp Nazi Forager's Cart to be precise

Bish...excellent shots, Mi'Lady commented, "He takes fabulous
pictures, is he a pro?"

Archer..if your back is only slightly sore I'm impressed, that's
quite a load you were hauling about, excellent garb!

Marietta...and Mike, great meeting y'all and thanks once again for
the use of that fabulous pavillion, the rain did not come back to
grace us.

Kate and 'girl child' heh, pleasure meeting y'all although, that girl
child is so sharp and smart it's almost creepy...

Okay, if I missed anyone, well, my belly is over ruling my brain, time
to feed it

I didn't take nearly enough pictures, but the dust was really hard on my camera and I wated to keep it from jamming up. Can't believe I didn't get a full group shot of everyone. Doh...
