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.
