re: the food....

I do know I would NEVER take on the job of catering to that many varied tastes...this camp handled it by doing big heaps of simple stuff. At least it was ready on time and easy to get to..*grin*...For a 'man of simple tastes', like me, it was tolerable, though I know some looked at piles of sort of dryish hamburger patties and thought longingly of past spreads. (The chicken & baked potato Sunday night wasn't bad at all)..and not being a fan of eggs, having heaps of hash browns and french toast and link sausages suited me. Perhaps the food can be negotiated in the future.

as to 'uphill', I'm afraid that we can do little to level out what one fellow referred to as "Camp Escher", but they were fairly tolerant of us using cars to ferry loads of stuff and handicapped campers to the various venues.

Rita & I have been sort of non-stop debriefing and talking to Charlie and others about how it all worked and how well it suits us...I expect there IS a good chance we will be there next year, but a long-term deal is still undecided. Any input from attendees is welcome...(emailed, hopefully, not all typed in here)

But, yep, all that good stuff referred to was just as good as it sounds. Much relaxing, music making, and making & renewing friendships. I feel very fortunate to have found the FSGW 20++ years ago and been amongst this kind of music ever since...and now, with the "Miracle of Mudcat" adding to the rich texture and talent we already had, I expect to sing, gripe, slog and exhult thru many MORE years of sleep deprivation and pure joy at the Getaway.
