Subject: MEEBO Takes to the Road
From: catspaw49
Date: 24 Mar 00 - 10:18 PM

After much bashing and a few harsh words sprinkled with the advice of a bunch of old farts, Mbo (Meebo) is going to go to the North Carolina Ren-Fair and hopefully meet up with Mario! I must say that I'm proud of the way he responded to the cajoling and I'm sure he'll have a great time. All the pushing and needling came from friends who want the best for him and are old enough to remember what we missed sometimes.........Good on yer Laddybuck!!!

Now let's be sure you have all the stuff you need. Have you checked the oil? Do so when you gas up. Got your map? Have you gotten a good look at Mario's picture or printed a copy? I sent you his real name so you have that.

OKAY GANG.....Anything else you think we need to tell the man.....like take a camera!!! We need pix for bbc's events page........What else????

Drive carefully and again, Ol Spaw wishes you the best and I am glad you're going out among 'em!!!

Spaw

Right-o Spaw! Thanks for all the support, everyone! Like my Grandpa used to say "If all else fails, beat it to death with a hammer." I got the camera, with lots of film, gonna fill up tomorrow morning, got my maps--and as anal as you know I am...have a list of all the town I will be passing through, so I know I'm on the right track, what roads I intersect and overpass...the path to the fairgrounds highlighted in blue. I'm gonna get my ELO collection for the big drive, and I'll be on my way! Thanks for everything gang! I LOVE YOU ALL!

Mbo, this will sound kinda dumb, but check the batteries on your camera, and be sure to pack it where you cannot possibly leave it behind. It's amazing the tricks these little gadgets will play in important moments like meeting cyberpeople. :-)

Have a great time, relax and be yourself! No point in going all that way just to turn into someone else when you meet Mario...To make sure he's being himself, check the inside of his elbow surreptitiously. If he's a pod person, there will be a birthmark there.

Aye, Mbo. Condoms make great water carriers in an emergency, and you can blow them up and make an improvised lifejaket if you stuff them inside your shirt. Remember the boy scout motto "Be Prepared" you never know when you might get thrown into a deep jello pit..

Make an Argentine-style drive : Don't forget the thermic bottle with hot water, your MATE, BOMBILLA, and two packs of YERBA MATE, your knife for the bar-b-que, radar detector, lots of steel wire for car repair, never carry maps (just ask people), don't look at signs, have fun !

Mbo, congratulations...Don't forget:

1. Money, at least enough to pay your way in if there's a charge, eat, and fill your gas tank on the way back. (And if the crafts booths are good, you'll probably find something else to spend a bit on.)

2. A pen and notebook to write down stuff that strikes you along the way.

And if you possibly can, DO forget your "regular" life for one day, and have a great time!

Don't forget the mundane stuff like bug spray, sunblock, clothing for bad weather, maybe an extra pair of sneakers in case of rain, some kind of cap. And, by all means, stash a roll or two of TP somewhere in the car. It's a great comfort not to need it, but a greater comfort to have it if you do. Maybe some antacids, altoids, foofoo juice, etc. Wash cloth, towel, etc. If you'll have access to your car, no problem packing loose, with extra stuff. BUt if you're living out of a back pack, lighten up, literally. And the all purpose utility essentials for any outing: a good pocket knife; roll of duct tape; spool of nylon twine; sheet of visqueen; and matches. MIght want to take a friend along to help tote all the essentials. :>) And most important: bring a good attitude.

Good man, Meebo, by the time you read this you will have come back. My guess is you will be bubbling over with enthusiasm for having had the adventure. I say this because it was happened when I did the same. Except I had to drive for 12 and a half hours to get to Virginia for the FSGW Getaway weekend. Now that you have your feet wet, why don't you consider coming for that event in October (???Right, Charley??) In fact, why don't all youse layabouts that rode the wee lads arse so hard figure on coming to Virginia in October for the greatest Mudcat gathering ever. Come on, folks, you have 6 or 7 months to save for it. I will bring the first round of the vile black stuff, and maybe cook something special.

MEEBO- a reminder about taking a camera, along with extra batteries, and all the film you'll need. I don't know if your a shutterbug, but film and batteries are very pricey at these events. And PLEASE, don't put off having the film DEVELOPED. I did that once when I was younger, and by the time I took the rolls in, they were undevelopable. I'd give my remaining eye teeth for those photos today! If you don't have a camera, the disposable ones are cheap and put out pretty good pix. Get one, (better two or three), with a FLASH. Take the Guitar, it can be used in lieu of clothing. Have a BLAST!!

I'll tell you all the truth..........I've been thinking about the kid all day and I'm not gonna' be too relaxed til he gets back and checks in. I'm sure he's having a great time, but if something were to happen to him after all that damn pushing I did ................ Always after the fact, there are a lot of times I wish I'd kept my big mouth shut. Wonder what his parents thought of the whole thing?

Screw it, he'll be OK and is probably having a great time and an adventure............but I'll feel better when he's back.

He's twenty-one not sixteen. He'll manage. I remember being terrified on a transatlantic flight when I was fifteen. The only thing that got me on the right train at the other end was seeing a poor lad of twenty-three who'd never been out of his hometown before in his life. In helping him I helped myself and got to where I needed to be.

It's no help, I know, but I know the feeling. In this instance, I believe you did the right thing, and you certainly had a lot of folks agreeing with you. Sort of like what my grampaw used to call "peckin' the young'uns out of the nest."

Spaw -- from all the signs I can see you did him a fine, positive service and the pressure was only just enough to overcome inertia and habit. He is 21 and it's only 100 miles, isn't that right? Perfect practice run for something more adventurous like shipping out to Hong Kong on a tramp steamer or joining a camel expedition to Fez...

Naw, I believe in my heart you did a right and good thing, so no worrying -- if he breaks his ankle on a streetlamp we can do hail Mary's then. I appreciate the good you did for him, getting him out into a horizon more than 24' deep. It'll wake up his soul. If it scares him, he'll survive.

Don't beat yourself up before it's time! :>)

He'll be okay, Spaw. He is not stupid, by any means, and needs to practise using his brains in the real world, too.

If you're really worried, dare I say it? Just visualise him surrounded by the Light and see him home, safe and sound, driving us nuts by posting a small book about what a grand time he had.

I DO know the feeling, though. My sister called me last night at 1030p from Colorado. My youngest daughter, at 22, was driving down to her place after work. A four hour drive. Had a friend with her and a cell phone she had turned off. We both got a little concerned, then I couldn't sleep, until finally about 11p I got her on her cell just as she was pulling into my sister's driveway. They got a late start but hadn't told anybody. The drive was mostly over lone prairie, two lane highways with nothing in between except one town of about 15,000 and a couple of bumps in the road, plus LOTs of deer in headlights! I still didn't get much sleep...too keyed up.

So, now, repeat after me, so ya don't suffer the way I did **BG** aaaaaahhhhh ooooooommmmmmm>/i>!

'spaw's worry over Meebo makes me think of my favorite H.L. Mencken quote:

Sin is a dangerous toy in the hands of the virtuous. It should be left to the congenitally sinful, who know when to play with it, and when to let it alone. Run a boy through Presbyterian Sunday school and you must police him carefully the all rest of his life, for once he slips, he is ready for anything.

Maybe there's an "alter Meebo" yearning to break free of conventionality. I've never done the ren thing myself, but from younger friends who do, I get the impression that there's a healty amount of licentiousness about the grounds, and many's the adventuresome wench to help a dacent lad through some of life's great transitions. I'm sure he'll have as much fun as he wants.

Meebo - all your surrogate parental types are waiting for a report. (Just remember, you don't really have to tell all. Half the fun for vicarious olde farts is the filling in the racey parts for our selves. Sorry, I meant "themselves")(tee hee).

Well, how to start...how to start...

YE-YES! Today RULED!

I took off at 8:30am, with my Godpell in the tape player and on my way. I made a straight perfect shot from Kinston to the outskirts of Ragleigh--ELO pounding from the speakers--UH HUH! But then I took a wrong turn! Instead of following 70 into Raleigh, my going-stunod mind saw a sign that said Raleigh, this way! So, I ended up on Interstate 40, the one thing I DIDN'T want to do!

But all turned out well in the end, and I reached the faire at 11:30am.

Well...I could go on forever about all the neat stuff I saw, irish & scottish dancing, pipers, kilts, quarterstaff, magic.....and then...

MARIO! I spied him, with a mug in his hand, just as you said! He was great, but he roped me into being Wench Walked, and I of course had NO idea what that meant! Well, me and Mario went to do our own things...I bought a set of small pipes...

Later I got together with Mario...and I was subjected to the wench-walk! 25 ladies! And 25 sets of lipstick marks! So THERE Amos & Spaw! And not only do I have Mario to confirm it, I have HARD PHOTOHRAPHIC PROOF! Afterwards, we got some pics of me and Mario. Mario didn't get Wench-walked, but I suggested that he might enjoy being Possum walked!

Well we wrapped up the day together, trading tips on good insults to use, he sang me Don Meixner's song...The Mother's Kiss...beautiful!

I did SORT of put on a persona, as Mbo Ruadh. I talked to some portrayers in my Scottish brogue! Mario made me bow as Queen Elizabeth passed. Needless to say, I didn't do one very graciously. Afterwards I said "Mario, did I just do a half bow to the Queen of England?" He said Yes, and I said 'Well good 'cause that's ALL she deserves!" Needless to say, Mbo Ruadh is loyal to Queen Mary!

Oh man, then I made MORE wrong turns on the way back, but the Horslips and Elle's folk primer kept me company! So here I am! Ask questions if ye want--there's probably a million things I've forgotten already!

And as for GUEST, ain't none of that happening till I get the ring, period.

Way to go, Mbo!! Sounds like a great time, and a great adventure for you too.

If there's bits of the day you can't remember, then you've done it right!

You said we could ask questions--I've got a couple for you--

You bought a set of pipes. Made by a Craft Guilder? Are they Panpipes?

Did they have craft demos? Since you're a craftsman/artist yourself, did you see anything you thought would be fun to do? In the SCA, at least, learning the guilds and crafts, as well as the protocol (YES, you bow to Queen Elizabeth, even if you ARE Mary's man--you could be tried for treason, you know) is half the fun of a persona.

Let's see--what kind of food did you have to eat? Anything strange to you? It's been a long time since I've participated in a Faire, but we always used to try to have at least one "authentic" dish for sale at the Inn.

Do you or your sister or your mom sew? If you really want to dress like the Ruadh, check out the Folkwear patterns at your local fabric store. Even Simplicity has great Celtic costumes in the Costume section, kilt and all.

And did you get any mundane names/phone numbers from the 25 assorted wenches?????

Mbo--glad you had a great time. (I've been lurking, but decided not to share any advice, except now I'll say to Sorcha that a call home nowadays'll cost you a quarter AND a dime!).

The FSGW Getaway of which Big Mick speaks is going to be October 20-22, 2000, a little later this year than last. It's migrating Northward to Maryland, to a more comfortable venue, which means an extra couple of hours for Mbo, but a shorter ride for Big Mick, especially if he doesn't allow AAA to route him over the only hairpin turns in Ohio that I know of. (True story--and you all only assumed there were no mountain roads in Ohio!) The person with the shortest commute will actually be Max, in all probability!

But Mbo, there are others coming up from North Carolina and Florida and points South, and I'm sure they'll be happy to give you a ride. (We'll arrrange carpooling in the Fall.)

So put it on your calendar, and remember not to let your schooling get in the way of your education!

Banjer, I was HUGELY into The Civil War back when I was 12 years old, my parents said if we weren't going to be moving to Japan in a few months, they would have got me into a Civil War reenactment group. I had this denim jacket that was my Dad's...jeans...a construction paper kepi, a canteen made from 2 pieplates, and a cartridge box and a rifle made from cardboard, I made all of it, and used to march around the yard feeling quite proud of myself....so I was weird!

Ugh, I would support Mary and her dim-bulb son even though they WERE weird, much more than I'd support that demon-seed Elizabeth and her pig scum old man. Actually, I'm kind of perplexed--since when does Renaissance mean England? I'd much rather be Italy, you know, the birthplace of the Renaissance...or France or Ireland. Much more fun.

As for the time of the trip, since it WAS my first time there, and I WAS going 65, for most of the trip anyway...there are places you have to drive down the center of the town, stopping at every traffic light. When leaving Raleigh, I sat at one intersection for 15 minutes waiting for a hole to get in. And for the last time, it was 130 miles! Not to mention all the wrong turns I made, and sometimes it's pretty hard to go 65 with a map curled over the front of the steering wheel.

As for wench phone numbers and names, no. None of them were my age.

And yes, driving on the interstate WAS scary! Give me my little highway 258 anyday! But then again, I wasn't on the interstate that long, kept trying to look for exits...I would guess that a longer trip would be easier....even without cruise control like I got.

Mbo,

I'm glad to hear that MMario is doing my song out and about. I am also pleased that you liked it.

The first Renn Faire I attended may be now, one of the best in the country. The Faire at Sterling New York, about 20 years ago. I try to go a couple times each year as I have friends who are either actors or crafters there. Try to hit more of them as you can.

After the fact advice is always easy but here is mine. Never take underware on a long trip. When you get there, stop at Wally World ( Thats Wal-Mart, Spaw.) and buy new and throw it away when you are done with it. Its only wasteful until you figure the space can be saved for fireworks, local whiskey, and odd bits of contraband. Also if you are in an accident, the nurses will be amazed, (amused?) at how clean your shorts are.

So what is this Ren Faire thingummy? Is it a one period historical re-enactment thing (sounds like Tudor with all the Marys and Elizabeths -- a pox on the pair of them because their Grandpa killed King Richard...)? A multi-period event, like Kirby Hall over here where you get to see Ancient Britons drinking with Romans, and Civil War (English Civil War that is) sharing a beer with the WWII crowd. Or is it more a music thing with a lot of re-enactors about and plenty of stalls where you can top up on your next season's kit and clothing? Divulge more....

They're generally multi-period, to an extent. They're Renaissance, but that tends to cover a fairly wide range of dates, and a lot of people dip into the medieval period as well. There's usually music, and crafts, and all kinds of other stuff. Very cool.

Well, what do you expect him to see when he is "in the position" and they are bent over kissing him?

I have GOT to get some sleep....

Well, I wasn't around at the weekend to give the boy any advice (just as well!) but he seems to have survived! I'm sure the fresh air and human contact has done you good, lad, you're spending too many hours at your 'pewter! Plenty of time for that when you're a sad old fart like, well, me, really!

Well done, MMario! Way to show a lad a good time! I'm sure Mbo is a better person for it. If you should happen to come to the Maryland RenFest, let me know in advance and I'll try to link up with you. Better skip the wench walk though, my wife will be there. *BSEG*

Wish you guys would have taken me with you, I would like to try that sometime. On second thoughts maybe not; I would probably kick the bucket from the sheer ecstasy of it.. But what a way to go boys!! Aye. Dave

MMario - there's a very good chance the wife and i will be going that weekend. We're planning to get season tickets this year. If we don't find you out and about, you can probably find us (and many others) at the White Hart Tavern.

Just looked at your picture. I think I've seen you there. We usually try to catch the Pyrates and the Pub Sing. BTW, glad you were able to catch White's Ferry. It's been a favorite of mine since I was a little kid.
