Pennsic 2003 Diary: Sunday, August 3

127.12 +
6.50: breakfast
= 133.62

6:30 AM

My tent leaks. Specifically, it has two leaks: both are over my bed. One is on top of my right foot and one is next to my head.

As you might have guessed, it rained last night. At 4 am. I hadn’t slept well before that and I certainly didn’t sleep well after. So I’m up now.

Let’s see what the day brings.

7:30 PM

The bad news: it rained today. Almost all day. Huge, long, hard downpours. I have a large puddle right outside my front door. I think there’s condensation, not leakage, on the roof of my tent. Annoyingly, it all falls on my bed, always in a different place. Aside from the two last night, there’s also a spot around my stomach and one where my pillow meets my bed. Needless to say, I have a damp pillow.

Hopefully it will be dry tonight. I’d like to experience some of the scorching Pennsic heat I’ve heard about.

The good news: I’ve met a bunch of new people. I heard voices when I got up this morning and discovered “Club Aed” across the road from us. They’re the emergency soup kitchen. Friendly people.

I also met some people at breakfast. They camp behind Atlantian Royal, but I don’t remember their names or the name of their group.

Finally, Freya’s here! Yay! I was treated to Freya cooking tonight. I got to meet some of the people she’s camping with, too.

I also sewed the first seam of my cloak lining. That’s good. Maybe I’ll have it done by the end of war, but I doubt it. Next year, I think I’ll only come once war starts. There’s nothing to do now. I’m bored. They have a fire next door, so I’m going to go there.
