OK, I have already started on my list of things to bring to the Getaway.

Crytalyzed Ginger tbd pounds ( units of 5 pounds)

Chocolate          suf quant (ie, as much as I can carry)

Various Instruments

100+ year old books that have song lyrics ( New Century Magazine, etc)

Computer Keyboards, for all those who have ruined theirs reading some of these threads.


Further suggestions would be gratefully received.

Well, I'd love to be sayin' that I was going to bring the P-Vine but she thinks that the whole lot of you all/us all is a bunch of knotheads???

So I asked her exactly what point she was trying to make... Ahhhh, remind me to add that to the things-not-to-ask-yer-wife list...

Fir me it ain't what I'm gonna bring but what I'm gonna use... I took my camera last time and never took a piccure... Man, that was dumb...

One thing I'm happy to report I won't be bringing is 15 blankets...

Good bye, Camp Tumbleweed....

I took my MD and never used it Bobert, mind you I was suffering quite badly from jetlag, and missed out on quite a lot of the fun last year.
This year I'm arriving a couple of days before, so's I get a chance to acclimatise.
So I guess I'll try to bring my wideawake head this year!
Might bring a tacky pressy or two to try for the revenge of the Ewetopians.

Lets hope the camp directors do not read these threads....(The Ramblewood director DID a few times!)

We WILL have to deal with the 'refreshment' issue, as this is a Methodist camp.
As was mentioned in the other thread, Ramblewood was an 'interesting' exception in the Getaway history. They specifically catered to strangeness....from SCA folks to nudists, and they coped with alcohol partly by not having much that could easily be damaged by drink OR exuberant consumers. This camp, West River, has a lot 'nicer' rooms and such...besides having a moral element in the decision. I do NOT imagine that anyone will be conducting late night inspections of our rooms, but as this is our first year there, we will need to carefully adjust to the situation. (Short version...don't do anything that is obvious, and ***NOTHING** in the trash!)

mebbe something like that, but the 'fair' way might be for everyone personally to 'take out what you brung in'.
It may depend on where the camp keeps its trash. WE can't be seen sneaking bags into a dumpster if the camp staff usually does the dumping.....gotta investigate.

Subject: RE: BS: Bringing to Getaway 2006

Yes of course we must all be responsible for our own trash, but there may be 'accidents' As for dumping, it needs to be taken away from the camp location and disposed of elsewhere to be on the safe side.

Parts of Maryland do indeed recycle...it is largely a county/city thing, but areas with enough population usually do.

(Having a LARGE van, and living in MD, I can sort of suggest that IF you were to find that you 'accidently' discovered some suspect bottles and cans, and had no notion of what to do with them, and were to bag them and to locate me as you are leaving, that I could manage to get them to a proper recycling place.)

Does that mean the electric situation will be a little better than Ramblewood as well? I remember regularly plugging in a hairdryer to warm up from the cold shower and blowing the fuse.

That reminds me... I left an electric radiator-type heater at Ramblewood a couple years ago, and it never did show back up. Anyone find it in their garage?

Sounds like the good news is that we'll not be needing those things to keep warm this year! Good thing, too, since the bunks are single....

Bill D, - FYI: Alaska Mike was not the only one who brought wild Alaska smoked salmon to the Getaway the last two years. So did KT and I! Not only that but I think ours is better- done by a friend of ours who does the hest salmon in town - and Mike's salmon is store bought. So there. "

Can we all agree that this requires a detailed study to be performed at the Getaway, with samples from as many sources of Alaska smoked salmon as possible??

Due to the location of the Getaway, there can be no *official* judging of beverages containing alcohol.

I have been asked to serve as First Chocolate Judge of the Supreme Chocolate Court at the Getaway. I am deeply honored, bearing in mind the proviso that "chocolate" in this context indicates a state of heart and mind. We are accepting nominations for up to 8 additional Supreme Chocolate Court judges. The only requirement is that they be susceptible to theobromine and have NO vested interest in any chocolate-producing companies, conglomerates, or close bonds or sexual transgressions with any representatives of same.

In the event I fail to arrive, court may be held by any number (greater than zero) of other duly appointed Supreme Chocolate Court judges. In the event no Judges arrive, judging shall be relegated to the proper seat of all power, the individual citizens present at the occasion, who shall share it as far as it goes to perform their ad hoc judging.

Candidates, make yourselves known!

Let it so be written, let it so be done: Janie and Alba will join me on the First High Chocolate Bench to determine the qualities and merits of all chocolate contestants, or ordinary contestants temporarily dipped in chocolate for the purposes of the judges. Hmmmm. If the Chief Judge is tardy in making an appearance, the two Judges shall proceed to begin tasting contestants. Lacking contestants, they may turn on each other. The CHief Judge will not participate in any judging involving salmon, however.

Despite being SO jealous of all you Cats getting to go to the Getaway, I have managed to scan almost all of the threads without going Green and Exploding.

At this point I have to point out to the Chocolate providers and Judges that Chocolate covered Celery was first created for our UK MudGathers a couple of years ago, closely followed by the renowned Chocolate covered Chillies. They have both become a firm favourite at Festival MudGathers here in the UK.

But Chocolate covered Salmon? Now there's an idea.... Thanks!!

Being the only male with balls, who's also got no self control, on this journey I can't allow this. If you wear them down for the ride do I get to wear one too?

Qouting from my confirmation letter:

Here are some things you should bring:

Bedding, pillows, towels, flashlights (We have not seen the new site at
night, so we don't know how dark it is.), clothing for a variety of
weather (including warm, cool, cold, and wet or dry), musical
instruments, and voices. In addition, if you are coming Friday evening
please bring food for a potluck dinner.

As in previous years we will have a silent auction to raise money for
the Lieberman/Olive Scholarship Fund. That means we need donations to be
auctioned off. This is a good opportunity to pass on your old recordings
and books (and other stuff) that you are no longer using to others who
would like them. All of your donations are tax deductible. And bring
money or a checkbook, because you'll want to buy stuff from the auction,
as well as other crafts and CDs.

Things you should leave at home:

The West River Center is alcohol free, so please don't bring any. Pets
are also off limits. You can also leave your cares at home and plan on a
relaxing though exciting weekend.
