Re: [sig] Digest Number 2049
- Wow, y'all were *busy* yesterday!!
remember, for Interkingdom it's not nearly as much about what
particular location, it's about where it's less expensive to fly in
to - usually means somebody's hub airport in my experience, but you
can test flights from "SIG hubs" to airplane hubs - Seattle or
Portland to wherever, for instance, for the An Tirian Slavic folks.
My impression has been that there are more of you on the East side,
and for the rest of it we're scattered. I have no idea if that's
valid; but if it is than your current speculations make a fair amount
of sense. Chicago's a hub as is Minneapolis-St Paul.
On teaching, I'm really unconvinced I want to come up w/ a class I
would bring in a field of Laurels but I do have a bunch of handouts
from a class I took from D. Waugh that has quite interesting stuff on
early trade routes as *proven* by dirham hoards.
For a Slavic U, I would do my level best to scrape the money for us
to fly out and participate... the "level best" of someone in social
service is notably little, but an opportunity like this is huge - and
by not adding all the complication of Pennsic to it sounds much more
"doable" to me. ....*hope*...
