Hey Jessie,

I am strongly considering it. It is a bit of a haul from Tampa though. I may need to look at it as an overnight.

I just broke out my new Pirate Garb at the faire in Gainesville last weekend, so I have gotten the kinks out I think.

If I can make it, it will definitely be on Saturday, as I have a soccer game on Sunday...

Diosa and I and perhaps some other crewe mates will be there Saturday all day.

I'll be north of Orlando part of the weekend. Tried to see if I could work this for Saturday, but it'd be too long a drive back down (4 plus hrs). I'll be aiming for Sunday.

After a reshuffling of plans, it looks like I can make it down on Saturday morning. Looking forward to seeing you all again. :P

I have to bail. Unfortunately, I got my dates crossed and this weekend is the opening weekend of the Bay Area Ren Faire that I am committed to attend.

You all have a blast. I was very much looking to raising a flagon with ye all in the flesh :blink:

I'm still trying to get there! Can't say either way yet, but I'm hopeful.

Not sure I'll be able to make it right when it opens at ten, but I'll be there shortly thereafter. I've traded cell #'s with a few folks, and will aim to seek you all out when I arrive.

I should be all set to attend, all by me onesies. I'll try to get there by opening, but it's about a 3-hour drive for me so who knows. :ph34r:

Sophia, if you're passing through Orlando and would like to meet up and ride the rest of the way, just let me know!

Yay! I should be arriving fairly early as well - anyone who wants digits, shoot me a mail and I'll give 'em along to aid in the meeting up.

Christ, now I gotta figure out what I'm wearing....

Me too...I dunno if I want to go for the PC gear or just do the costumey thing...maybe I'll mix it up.

I have a totally non-PC bodice from Damsel in this Dress that I have yet to wear at all, so I might dig that out. Since it's rennie, I'm less concerned and it would give me a chance to wear something I wouldn't be able to get away with at a PC event.

Hey Brig - Thanks! I'm flipping back and forth on an additional event I may need to hightail back up to Orlando for early Saturday evening. If I decide not to go for it, I will let you know by tomorrow (Thursday) at the latest via PM.

P.S. - Ladies, I've gotta go combo or full on fun (outfit) for this one. <_<

Sure thing, Sophia. I'm flexible!

As for wearables...I'm toying with the idea of my airship pyrate garb, if I can get it put together in time. Who knows, it'll probably change half a dozen times before Saturday. <_<

I'm jealous of your steam punk outfit Brig. So far it looks amazing!

Sorry Diosa and I didn't make it. That damned cold thing keeps circling around.

Sorry to hear that, Hurricane. We missed the two of you.

As usual, I didn't take nearly enough pictures, but those I did take are on myspace.

Always does my heart good to meet up with pirating friends. I lifted more than one glass to those that couldn't be there. Special thanks to Sophia for riding with me, and to Jessi for letting me bum cigarettes.

The day was lovely, warm and cool depending on if you were in the shade or sun, with a nice breeze for most of it. This was my first time at that faire, and I wasn't disappointed. The vendors and entertainment were top notch. If you've never caught the Barely Balanced act at a faire, they're worth seeing more than once.

Barely Balanced was an amazing trio to see. Thanks to Brig for introducing me to their act, and for the ride to and from (and a fun time at the Fest). You are a generous soul. It was good to see Jessi and many a member of the Bone Island Buccaneers too. Rusty Nell, you looked fabulous in your kit! And btw...where did you get that hula hoop you mentioned?

Sorry to hear a cold has taken hold of yah Hurricane (and Diosa). I hope you all get better soon. I ended up with a head cold today, but am doing alright on Thera Flu.

*off to check out Brig's pics...hopefully will have some of my own up in a day or two*
