Winter's afoot, and it's this time of year that I always start feeling a little stir-crazy because I've been able to be 'The Doctor' on a fairly regular basis. But then cold weather comes on and the events dry up and sites start closing down for the season.
The first weekend in December there's a Christmas event at Fort Loudon that I've been invited to... and on top of that, I just agreed to be the guest speaker at the Charles Duncan Chapter of the Kentucky Society Sons of the American Revolution's Christmas Dinner.
So that'll give me my fix for December just before Christmas. Then I imagine it'll be a few months before I'm able to don my garb and be the Doctor again. Bwah, that sounds depressing.
SO, in an effort to perk myself up, perhaps I ought to mention some things I'm looking forward to next season...
Martin's Station Raid, Ewing, VA.- I spoke with one of the guys that does a top notch indian interpretation... and he wants to do some sort of scenario with the Doctor. He mentioned several ideas that sounded really good. I'll update you on those as time draws closer.
Traveller's Rest, Spring Sampler, Friday, May 1, 9:00am-4:00pm- I'm hoping that this event doesn't overlap with anything else... I really enjoyed going out there and would love to get to go back.
