I should have put a lot more smileys behind that.  Yes, I am aware
that other Kingdoms are so large that some groups never see
the Crowns.  My point was that it sure seems like Atlantian Royalty
(in general) has trouble travelling around in as small a Kingdom as
we have.

I think I brought this issue up on the Rialto over a year ago.  Crossing
a state line or even a river or mountain seems to set up all sorts of
barriers in a person's mind.  I'm about 2-3 hours from South Downs,
yet I have never gone to an event there.  Why?  It's in another
Kingdom....  See, no real reason why I shouldn't go.
