I love to listen to the laughter of an Adenveldter who hears these kinds 
of words.  There are people who have had to travel the distance from 
Augusta Georgia to Baltimore Maryland just to get from one group to 
another.  I think that distances are really physcological, and can best 
be counted in the number of groups you pass over to get to an event.  I 
went to Crown, I had to pass through Caer Mear, Berley Court, and at 
least one of Windmaster's Hills cantons to get to Fortaleza.  Earl 
Dafydd, one of the other Northerners at Crown, would have added Ponte 
Alto and Stierbach to that list.  Count Thorbrandr would have added 
Storvik to Earl Dafydd's list, or would have cut across a bridge from 
Dun Carraig, through northern Tir-y-Don, and then into Caer Mear.

The other way to count the distance to an event is by the number of 
events you would pass to get there.  That includes not only the events of 
that weekend, but depending on the number of events you go to in a year, 
it could include one to three weeks before and after an event.  By that 
measure, it is very easy never to leave your state, and still get to 

I know I often don't have the opportunity (true this week) of getting to 
events I like to repeat, such as Feast of Herne.  It is really hard to go 
any long distance for a new event at a group new to me.
