I saw a notice somewhere that said that there will-be an FSGW Getaway at the West River Conference Center in Maryland in 2023, but now I can't find the notice. If you can provide information about the 2023 Getaway, please post it here. I'll change the title as appropriate.

THE FSGW GETAWAY RETURNS TO WEST RIVER!!
The Folklore Society of Greater Washington's Getaway is scheduled for 29 September-2 October, 2023, back at the West River Methodist Conference Center near the Chesapeake Bay!!! Mark your calendars now! Dean and I are co-chairing this year, and we need your help. If we cannot get enough folks to come, we will have to cancel, and the Getaway, after nearly 60 years, will die. The magic number is 70. However, we can bring the price down significantly with more people attending. At 70, the price will be around $360, but if we have 110 people, it will be $230. So, the best way all of you who have enjoyed the Getaway in the past ,or have thought it might be fun to try it, can support it is to make it a priority this next year, and to spread the word.
Many of us have been coming for decades, but the Getaway is not just for old folkies! We who are older appreciate and greatly value younger voices; not only do they bring fresh ideas and insights to the table, but, in a community with a shared belief in the power and importance of preserving the living traditions of music, we know that each generation must rely on the next to continue and enhance the work that we have done.
For those unfamiliar with the Getaway, think of an amazing weekend-long party of folks who love to sing, play and listen to folk music, coming together in a lovely riverside retreat to join together in making music, sharing what they bring and learning from friends old and new. Throw in some workshops and sign-up concerts, music and conversations at all hours, and the joy of community, and that pretty well describes the Getaway. Participation is encouraged at any level you feel is comfortable to you, in a supportive and welcoming environment. Old and new songs and tunes, recitations and stories, along with information on historical contexts and insights, have filled the Getaway, along with conversation and laughter, for over half a century; come be a part of the fun!
Please feel free to share this post.

Now I’m wondering how to make this long trip by myself without resorting to a flight from Toronto. Two days on the road each way?

Maybe. Just maybe.

Definitely doable in two days. I've driven from my house near Washington, DC to the greater Toronto area in a day. It usually takes me about 10 hours depending on traffic and how fast I get across the border. That usually includes a lunch stop, a fuel stop and at least one quick rest break.

Takes about an hour traveling generally east to get from my house to West River.

I usually have at least one other person to split driving duties with.

Well, I’ll put it in the calendar and change the strings on my guitar. I might even learn a new song. Or two.

I've never been, but it might work this year. Any other pilgrims thinking about it?

Would it help spread the word if a blurb was placed on the mudcat facebook page? (I had an account but it was locked, so can't)
