Part of the idea was to connect with old friends in the area, including disneybaroness and Louie, and Publius and Mathilde, but the formers had car trouble and the latters also had issues preventing a trip out to the site. We did connect with Amy and Louie for some sightseeing and dinner later.
It was great, as well, seeing old faces: Sir Strykar, Countess Allanda, Sir Tnek and Mistress Tannis, Sir Axel, Baron Donal mac Ruiseart, and others. (The problem with principalities and kingdoms splitting off is, you don't see those folks anymore unless you meet at Pennsic.) There was a nice history display, including a pic of me heralding the Coronation court 30 years ago. auntie_elspeth and I got to play Eastern ambassadors and conveyed the greetings of lucanusdux and swanduchess.
A nice post-vacation vacation.
