      I'm sure there are plenty of us in that boat! For me, I live in a very
      small and secluded coastal town... not only is it an hour and a half
      one way to my nearest shire's meeting, but also to the nearest Walmart
      and dollar store (and any fast food aside from our crappy McD's - just
      to show how rural we are.)

      We're lucky that we get one event only 2 hrs away from us (Beltaine
      Coronation in Cloverdale/Wolfscai rn)... but every other event is at
      least 5 hours one way from us.

      It's a huge gas expense, and of course the SCA in and of itself is
      quite an expensive hobby (especially it seems if you're royalty! Hubby
      still hasn't decided if he wants to try for THAT yet, though he wants
      to learn to fight, though our closest practice is over 3 hours
      away)... but it has seemed to me that the experience, the fun, and the
      friendships you gain make all that expense worth it!

      (We've gone to March Crown, which is about 6 or 7 hours from us one
      way, and to Beltaine, and hope to make 12th night in San Jose this
      year --- the same distance from us as Crown was, with a pregnant
      belly, and a two year old boy... wish me luck all!)
