Casualties of the road trip:

1. My Eagle Scout pewter keychain.  I had my keys attached to my pants by a caribiner.  The keychain was attached to a chain which was on a loop on the caribiner.  I think it slid down into the seat of the bus I was on then turned so that one of its wings 9or both) were caught below the seat.  I felt a tug when trying to stand up, but I thought everything came out okay.  It wasn't until I looked at my keys while I was on the Metro that I noticed it was gone.

2. My pen.  I use a PhD Multi pen (pen/pencil/stylus).  It ran out of ink.  Thankfully, a trip to Staples solved it.

3. My laptop.  Damnit.  It wouldn't post when I turned the power on (Translation: start booting).  Even when it did start postng, the computer would soon reset itself.  Lesson learned: Don't buy refurbished laptops unless you get a warranty.  I can maybe sell the thing for parts, but I'm kinda sad that I didn't have a laptop to use for the remainder of the trip.

I did pick up a WiFi card for my Palm Tungsten T5, but, woudln't you know it, you have to install the software drivers for the card from a CD... which necessetaites having a computer... which, at that point, was busted. :-p

Anyway, time for more Clearwater journal:

What a trip it has already been!

This year, I'm really taking my role as "interpreters bitch gopher" seriously. I've done a whole lot of work for them... copying schedules, adjustig schedules, and other sundry tasks. But thats okay... They're worth it. Plus, there wasn't a ton of performers I really wanted to see.

I did see Billy Jonas do a set, as well as Battlefield Band. Sharon Katz & the Peace Train rocked mightily. The most interesting performance was a worshop titled "No guitars", which had Billy Jonas, Mike Seeger, and Mike Katz from Battlefield Band on whistles and the bagpipes. Yes, bagpipes.

At the end of the evening, I rocked out to Entrain at the dance tent with the volunteers. Rock. On.

After the dancing, I returned to the site. I visited the George Fox Pavillion,and now I know exactly who Lori got pissed off with at SMAF.

Well, i'm exhausted and heading off to bed to the music of a capella group Earthtones from U Albany. It was good to see horvendile today, and there should be a few more people that I know.
