- I am interested in possibly joining the SCA. Through some research
today, I discovered I am residing in the realm Cynnabar! If there
are any local folks out there interested in teaching a newbie the
ropes, please contact me! Thanks!
i feel so much better knowing i'm not the only person in the middle of nowhere!

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!)
