Starting the season early.

Itís January fourth, the temps outside are in the 20ís and Iím doing something Iíve never done before this weekend. Iím re-enacting in January. Thatís right; Iím starting my season four months early. After getting voted into the ONW Company I decided that Iím going to actually participate in their winter camps. Iíve been invited in the past, but never felt right in attending because I wasnít a member.

Right now Iím getting ready to head out. Iím pretty excited as I have a very bad case of the Rendeflu (The illness re-enactors get when they are long away from a re-enactment or Rendezvous). Which is pretty funny since itís been only two months since the Ball and two and a half months from my last re-enactment. Normally the Rendeflu doesnít hit me until February, usually right after the Super Bowl.

Now Ktreva and the boys arenít joining me for various reasons. Ktrevaís biggest reasoning is that, ďItís cold and youíre insane for wanting to camp in this weather!Ē I on the other hand figure Iíll spend most of the time in the cabin, only leaving to use the out house. Itís the only time when you look forward to being the second person having to use it so the seat is warmed.

Iíll be back on Sunday! Donít have too much fun.

I'll see ya this afternoon. Unfortunately, I have to attend the dreaded 4 letter word, work, until about noon. Then a trip past the home to grab gear and beer, and on my way. Can't wait.
