    I will be there!

    Not planning on being a vendor, just want to hang out, meet people, and learn a few things.

    Looking forward to it!

    I definitely hope to make it back again this year. Still working on tweaking my teaching schedule to see if it can be longer than the weekend.

    I reckon Herself intends to attend the 2 kilo kit course, and then she’s on the bill for doing a Tea and Titles book review thingy on Saturday. I’ll be out walking amongst the n’er do wells and vaux riens as usual, taking notes and lending them a hand...

    Working on some new recipes to demonstrate.

    It’s always a great weekend, but the 6” snow storm caught everyone off guard last year!

    Be sure to stop by and say hello...

    Is it always in the same place? Also call me crazy, but why is there no snow in the pictures on the website?

    In the last few years we have not had snow for the event... it's always the end of October and it's no telling what we will have for weather. Global warming has kept us in the "green" for this event all but last year. We had a freak 6" snow the first night last year (the pictures I showed) we all went to bed with having setup on green grass and woke to a blizzard.
    It always seems odd to have a winter camping event with no snow... but we made up for it last year!
