Off to the city this afternoon for a checkin at the hospital. And taking Jessika to the airport for her trip to Rome. In the meantime the sun is out over Raven Ranch. The corn and the weeds are growing. I can put some energy and time in on weed control since the intermittent rain is watering it just dandy.
Let me take some time and energy right here to work on the NEWS ABOUT THE CAMINOHEADS CONVENTION:
Just to repeat some of the important stuff. We are having open house here at the ranch August 23- 26th. That’s four days of activities with plenty of time for gabbing and telling lies with fellow pilgrims. Most of the Bureau Chiefs will be here. I am assigning BC’s with duties while they are here and we will have a few meetings.
If you are flying in you need to arrive at SeaTac airport. Find your way to the Washington State Fauntleroy Ferry Dock in West Seattle, half hour from the airport. Cross over to Vashon on ferry that takes cars and passengers. We will in most cases be able to pick you up from the ferry dock here on the Vashon side if you are on foot. We will need a certain amount of rental cars so if you can afford one please get one.
We have plenty of camping available for tents and camper vehicles. We will have porta potties. We will have an outdoor kitchen available for campers.
This will be corn season and we should have plenty of corn to provide some for everyone. We can bbq, grill and potluck our way through this. Vashon has two supermarkets and a dozen eateries.
I am sure that there are plenty of b and b’s available if you get one early. Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org before June 15th with the number in your party.
I am expecting around fifty interesting people to show up. Father Tom Hall is coming as is filmmaker Annie O’Neil. Cris Milher will be here from Buenos Aires, William Hayes from Calgary and John Conway from Iowa. Our Puget Sound Western Washington Bureau Chief Ryck Thompson is arriving by boat naturally. My Rebecca, the fabulous Catherine y Dana combo will be here. I expect a good representation of local Caminoheads to show up.
Think about it and come if you can. It will be fun and as always memorable. In the words of Chris, Caminoheads love togethernessing. That’s the plan.
Off I go. Convention loves, Felipé.
