Gathering Updates...

Postby Duna » Sun Jul 16, 2006 3:08 pm

Okay.. When all of the gathering plans started Dranix's parents were fine with us using their house and everything.. Well the closer it gets and the more they think about things.. the uneasier they get about letting people tromp through their house.. Now We ARE allowed to still use their property.. but they have decided that the bathroom in the house is off limits to all but some of the Indiana people.. and those are allowed only because they have meet them on several occasions and know them.. And we found out that the bathroom in the camper doesn't work properly.. so it won't be hooked up at all...

Now I need to find out if you guys would be willing to put in about $3.00 each to help cover the cost of a port-a-potty for the weekend..

Also anyone that is driving if you have access to tents, or camping gear.. could you bring some of it.. even if you won't be using it..

There are alot of you I don't have full plans for.. SO.. If anyone's staying at a hotel please let me know.. and let me know if you would mind if people who are crashing in tents used your shower in your hotel room...
The Bathroom thing just came about in the past few days... We found out renting a port-a-potty for the weekend will cost like $75..

Let me know please people....
Just under 3 week until the gathering...

I'd be tickled to pitch in for a port-a-potty. Have Derek and Hei discussed this with the owners of the property? Are they okay with a port-a-potty being out there? Do they have outside running water that we can use? I was already kind of worried about this whole set-up, since I know I wouldn't want a bunch of people I don't know tromping through my house, but we're talking about a whole weekend of mudders with no showers. While you people are sitting alone in your apartments staring at your monitors, whether or not you take a few minutes away to shower isn't really an issue, but with us all together...

You might want to double-check on the costy of that port-a-potty, though. They're tons more expensive here in Oklahoma. Ask the dealers if there are any other fees involved.

It was actually my dad's idea for a Port-o-Pril, and it costs a flat fee of 75 bucks to be paid before or after, both Hei and my father have called all the places around here and its the same rate for all of them, so Port-o-Neklers are cheap around here. As for showers are concerned, we have a hose and a pool...close enough :P

While you're pricing porta privies.. check into showers. If I were still going I wouldn't mind chipping in 15 bucks for a bathroom and shower. *shrug*

Though August and a hose... it would work.

Okay, things to think about from my SCA clan experience...

Showers... if we're going to use cold water from a garden hose that's all fine and dandy, but you'll need to set up an area away from the house where the property owners won't mind it getting muddy. Somewhere you can hang a curtain would be nice. If you have hoses that stretch out to there, I'll spring for one of those two-headed nozzles for the spigot so you don't have to detach the hose every time somebody else needs water in the campsite. If you don't have enough hoses, they're five dollars at Wal-Mart, and I'm sure we can work something out. I'd suggest to people to pack their own towel.

Food preparation... you'll need tables out there already set up. At the tables you will need tubs for water containers, because handwashing is a must. You'll need several large ice chests, each labelled for what goes in it, because you really don't want to mix your meats in with your fruits and veggies. Along with the ice chests, you'll need gallon-sized ziplock baggies. You'll need a couple of containers for dry goods like hamburger buns and paper plates... a decent breeze will have your dinner accoutrements spread everywhere, otherwise. You'll need cutting boards or those disposable things, because cutting on paper plates is a nightmare, and you'll need two tubs set up for washing any dishes that may accumulate, like knives and grilling utensils (unless all that will be done inside, of course).

Water... it's going to be hot, so it wouldn't hurt to have a couple of large water igloos with icewater. I'll bring my sports bottle and a cup, because it's just the wise thing to do when you need water on a steady basis.

Trash... it would be a good idea to set up at least one large trash receptacle close to the prep area. We can all pitch in to police the area of garbage, but using just plastic bags tied to a chair could have trash strewn everywhere at some point.

I didn't even begin to cover everything, but it'll be discussed as it crops up, I'm sure. This is an odd situation, so I don't know what you will be able to handle inside, but when I go camping I'm really not used to there being an "inside."

well food prep will be done inside.. just the grilling will be done outside..
we've discussed setting up an area for hand washing.. with soap and the hose.. about the only primitive thing will be the bathroom situation.. we've got cooler's we're going to use, as well as having plenty of pop and water on hand.. I"m hoping things will go fairly smoothly..

From my years of camping, I'd like to suggest a fairly easy and self-contained solution for the handwashing. Just fill an empty Tide liquid detergent container (the super size with the little spigot-like tap on it) with water, put a bar of soap in the toe of some pantyhose and tie the pantyhose to the spigot of the Tide container. Et voila! You can push the button, get water, soap up, then rinse. The soap never gets lost, dropped, accidentally pushed into the weeds and the water doesn't put out more than you need to get the job done.

More than once, I've used this system while camping for a week with a group of 30 (a story in itself) and it worked like a charm.

The actual meet and greet part will be on Friday, Muma. We're all heading over to Paige's Crossing early Saturday afternoon. So if you wanted to bring food and meet newcomers, you'd have to get here on Friday.

I was told you were flying to Indianapolis and riding all the way to the gathering in my lap, Thanuk.

Of course, I think I was just told that so certain people could see how I acted in a state of apoplexy. I think my reaction of "Hunh, cool." was rather disappointing for them.

okay.. for those of you last minute people... if you fly in...
either fly into indianapolis thursday morning around noon.. let sotana know if you will be doing this..
otherwise fly into fort wayne friday morning-ish.. let me know if this is what you are doing and i will arrange you a ride..
or Southbend about 3 pm on friday.. we already have a driver going there at that time..

If you plan on driving.. get ahold of me and I will give you the addy you need to mapquest the directions...

Otherwise.. if you don't get ahold of me telling me you need picked up at X place about X time.. you will be stuck.. and if you don't ask for the addy you won't have a clue as to where to go...

AND that will be your problem :)

It's 4 days to the gathering and some people are arriving in 3, just a last minute reminder.

Make sure you bring light clothes, a check on the weather shows highs of 80s (heat index and humidity bringing it up to 90s) and isolated t-storms. Bring your bathing suit even if you think you won't be swimming, as hot as it is, you may decide to jump into the pool if only to cool off. The food is in the process of being made and there will be cold water and pop available, but it's bring your own booze. Please bring a pillow, especially to those staying at my house thursday night. I've got plenty of blankets but a lack of pillows. Make sure you bring all of the bathroom stuff you need as well as anything else you cannot do without. I welcome people to bring their laptops if you can't stand not being on the mud or whatever, but as of now, I only have one extra router port open. Derek's parents' have given us permission to put a fire ring behind the barn so there will be a nice fire to roast marshmallows on in the evening. Because of the isolated t-storms, I may consider just trucking everyone back to my house to sleep, not too happy about people sleeping in tents on the field through storms, but we'll see how the weather goes.

If you haven't contacted either Duna or I about addresses and phone numbers, please do so ASAP.

Can't wait to see you all.

Love,
Hei

From a safe distance.

I beg to differ.

Its actually kind of funny, the weekend after my accident I went camping (Had planned it months in advance, payed alot of money, etc). We got to the campground, and we were setting up our tents. I hadn't been camping since I was a kid, and I didn't have a tent, so I borrowed one from my friend Ray (who wasn't camping with us). Clouds were looming in the sky ominously, and we were putting them up as fast as we could. My friend was helping me put mine up, as I had no idea what I was doing.

When the words came out of my friends mouth, a sense of dread filled my entire body, and the rain started coming down in buckets. What were those words you might ask?

"Hey Ed, where's your rain guard?"

My friend Ray forgot to give me the rain guard .... And those buckets of rain were happily, maybe even gleefully, slipping right through the mosquito screen and soaking all my belongings inside the tent. We tried damage control, and the rain stopped 10 minutes later, but it was too late. I had to sleep in there that night (no room in other tents), and the next day I made my buddy drive me to Wal-Mart for a new tent!

Funny story, thought I'd share :)

I love you Kelly, and I hope everyone has fun at the gathering!

If needed, I could maybe be convinced to drag my wireless router along for anyone that has a laptop with wireless networking.
Derek's parent's place doesn't have any kind of internet connection though, so the only place anyone would have a net connection is if they were at Derek and Hei's place.

I just realized it was too far for me to make it so I won't make it this year, maybe next year...

Sorry boys, not going to make it this year. I've got a cat in desperate need of a good polishing.

I'm flying into Fort Wayne at 6:30 on Friday. Pril/Teflor have already volunteered to drive out to get me, but if anyone else is flying in at the same time, it might be easier. Send me a PM or an email.
