: : : Me again-Marcia suggested that I post some info about why I love LOTM and myself so I can get to know everyone somewhat before the Gathering.
: : : I did not see the movie on the big screen-it was years later when I saw it. I cannot express the emotion when I saw it-the characters, the location, and the music had me trembling! I grew up on a 500 acre farm that was practically all woods, and that is where I am the most comfortable. I have always appreciated the various Native American nations, and this was one of the first movies I had seen that treated them with some of the respect they deserve.
: : : I am married with a 3 year old boy, and I am looking forward to coming alone and running free in the woods like when I was younger.
: : : Exploring these sites is something I have always wanted to do, and I could not pick a better, more knowledgeable group of people to do it
: : : with! Sorry if I put you all to sleep!
: : : Beth
: : Hi Beth
: : No danger of putting any of us to sleep! It sounds like everyone is too excited about the gathering to doze off! I am a "Gathering Virgin" (!) too, and really looking forward to it. I have a little further to travel than you though, I will be coming over from England for this meet-up! Oh, by the way, I will be leaving behind a husband and four year old and much as I love them, I am looking forward to ..........FREEDOM!!!!
: : See you in NC !!
: : Adele
: Adele- I am really looking forward to meeting you! I don't feel so guilty about leaving now that I have a partner in crime! I think that this will be just the thing we need-if your family is like mine they probably depend on you for everything. See you in the woods of N.C.!
Yeah, but you gotta love the husbands!!! They must all be "keepers" if they understand the compulsion to leave hearth, home and hubby to go trekking down to the middle of nowhere in NoName North Carolina to visit with a bunch of Mohican fanatic internet buddies never as yet met!!!! Huzza for the other halfs left behind!!!!
