>I agree with His Grace Logan, don't let these letter make you feel uneasy
about Pennsic. When I went to my first one, I went on shoe string budget.
The wonderful people from Elevegast in Windmaster's Hill helped me foot some
of the monies for the trip. Everyone one understood and no one minded the
fact that I wasn't wearing completely "period" clothing. All they wanted was
for me to have a good time, and I did. Let that be the same for you. Go and
have a good time.
