They had a communal bonfire at one point, however it was nothing like the cesspool of TRF. I'm not sure if they still do have the patron fire now. Anyway, Camping at SWFF is more about visiting with your neighbors and the clans. Its not a Ren Girls gone wild, drunken and drugged up frat party. Yes, I'm a tad bitter about what the TRF bonfire has turned into (o:

Since I'm having to move (owner of the condominium I've been leasing, is going to sell it - and NO, I don't want to buy it...  ;) ), I've got 3 rents to pay for February (current, new, & deposit on new).

So, it looks like money is probably going to be too tight the next few months, for travel and Ren Faires.

Hope y'all have fun, and post some good photos of Sherwood.

Thanks!

Well, I did find another unit to lease, in this same complex (about 100-ft closer to work...  ;) ) - but it costs a couple of hundred more per month.
When I started looking in mid-December, I found that the price of 900 - 1000 sq-ft units has gone up quite a bit, over the last 6 years (but my current landlord has only raised the rent once).   :)

Makes sense. So many people are still displaced. Lots of houses are still sitting empty. All of those people have to find temporary housing.

Not sure how the immigration numbers for Houston looks these days, but we were getting a large influx from California which was also raising house prices. It would be nice if that slowed down, for a number of reasons (o:  Though, if you're a realtor this is financial boon.

Friends of Faire pass acquired, tent being poked and prodded into behaving, all set for CRAAAAAAP! As I get booked for a convention appearance on set up weekend :D

Is it possible to set up either prior to set up weekend or during the week between that and opening weekend?

Discovered some of my gear needs replacing, but the main problem is- as mentioned in a different post- not going to be able to do set up on the weekend before opening and really don’t want to try to last-minute my big-arsed tent on Opening Friday. So trying to scramble to get everything prepped into modular format so it’ll be easier to wrangle solo.
I’ll be out the weekends of the 1-3rd, 15-17th, my birthday weekend (29-31st), and then all but the first weekend of April, so I’ll be out a LOT 😁

And the only reason I am not assisting my dear Captain in posting the count down is that my old computer died a year or so back and I have not downloaded a new countdown program. 

At my age I usually have to look at the date on my computer or phone to know what day of the week it is anyway.  Once upon a time I did countdowns in my head, but ain't gonna even try that any more.   ::)

With a bit of luck and good weather, I hope to see you there, Fraser.  It is Teach's 13th birthday and the celebration will begin early and last till late.  I'm looking for volunteers to pick me up because StudMuffin gets a little frisky when he celebrates hard.  And you have experience in that area, I admit thankfully.

And our customer has confirmed that we will continue to slave away through the weekend. So no opening weekend adventure for me. Hopefully my family will be make it second weekend.

Fraser, I sure hope you have a awesome weekend in the forest. SWFF truly is a great faire. It has a completely different atmosphere than TRF.

Don't forget that it is also Teach's "actual" birthday. He's a leap year baby. So if you see him, wish him all the best. I was hoping to make the pub crawl with him, but I guess I'll just have to enjoy some rum with him next weekend.

HAD A FREAKING BLAST!!

I loved the fact that we outnumbered them...more garbed people than Danes.  The rustic feel...clean but not completely tame...dappled sunshine coming through the trees...the seemingly random pathways...

Seeing lots of faces that I knew...almost like the old days at TRF...walk fifty to a hundred steps and run into someone you know.  The Jerusalem Pub had the feel of the Sea Devil, 15 years ago, before the stages and decks....and the Bloody Bee Stings.

Teach, Trinn, Renstar, Keeper, Breandan, Lindsey...and even if it was only for a brief minute, MERLIN!! Been talking to the man for years but this was the first time we had the chance to lock arms and exchange some banter, face to face.  It was an honor, Sir to finally meet you and your wonderful wife.

Lady Jess and I are already plotting for next year...making a whole weekend of it. ;D

*And lets not forget Queen Bonnie!  She remember the Scarby Rendezvous and the Rusty Nails that messed me up so bad.*

I'm so glad y'all had a great weekend. Couldn't have asked for better weather. Now you see what we've been raving about. I just hope the "Faire for Rennies" last a good long time. I hope you do get to come out again next year Fraser. Or maybe, once more before this season ends.

I'm hoping this test will end soon so that I can finally unwind in the forest.

Hell, I'll come back just for the Bloody Bee Stings and the people watching from the Jerusalem!  ;)

I have no idea about the Bloody Bee Stings. I'll have to look into this when I get some time off. But yes, the Jerusalem is awesome. Good entertainment, and great place to just sit. Though, the faire is filled with great places to sit and watch the people go by.

Wow!  What a weekend.  The weather was almost ideal.  StudMuffin and I had a great time.  Finally met Merlin the Elder in person.  Saw RennStar, Jess & Fraser and too many others to mention. 
It was a very fine opening, indeed.
Sorry you missed it KP.
HAZZAH to Queen Bonnie!

The weather was great, the company was better!!  It was great seeing the usual suspects that hang out at Sherwood and some faces that I don't usually see there.  It was good chatting you with you as usual Keeper.  Finally saw Fraser in the Forest with Jess, caught up with Merlin and his Bride, and saw Tommy Wilson.  And the PR folks that I always enjoy seeing:  Teach & Trinn, Brandon, Rob Morton, Andrew Minchew, Remy & Jessica, Mongo & Roadkill, Jeremy & Sarit, & Moondog and his bride!!  It was a great day!!

Laird Fraser, you weren't nearly as scary-looking as RenStarr said you were...  The Bride and I certainly enjoyed seeing you finally. I'd tell you to stay out of trouble, but I'm not delusional. Perhaps we'll see you again next year.

Finally also met Keeper after all these years. Damn, Fraser! What did you and Teach do to him?!?

Contrary to what Fraser and Teach say, I did NOT say, "Here, hold my beer and watch this!".

Keeper is the man...and he knows that I'm always willing to lend him a hand.

*A poet and didn't know it* ;D

We'll meet again Merlin, gods willing, under the trees of fair Sherwood.

*I'm coming back for the damn Bloody Bee Stings*
