Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Carolina Ren Fest

It's almost time! The Carolina Renaissance Festival is coming. It starts this year on October 6th -- less than two months away now. Is it bad to be looking forward to this sort of event? Does it make me more of a geek (or is that nerd?)? :)

Unfortunately, I'll be out of town the first weekend (Oct 6-7), but I'll be there on more than a couple of the other weekends. If you have never been you really should make plans to attend. I really like it because it truly is an escape. You can spend the entire day pretending you're in another world. It's calm, it's peaceful, and you rarely hear a word about the troubles of the world today.

There's almost no electricity anywhere. My favorite guy to see is Dextre Tripp. He's an incredible acrobat and he's a downright wonderful person to meet and know. If you want to meet him, just hang around after a show and talk to him, he's really nice.

I'll start now by extending an open invitation to anyone to come out and join me. I'm there most weekends, and I'd love to meet up with anyone who can get out there. If you want a day of relaxation, total escape and fun, come on out. And no, I don't get paid by them for this ad, I'm just letting you know it really is nice. Oh, and if you're in a hurry and want to see everything in one day, count me out -- I like to go and just take my time and enjoy it.

Drop me a line in comments if you can make it out there one day and I'll be glad to meet up with you! Oh, and the counter in the right column does show exactly how many days to the first weekend... :)
