Sometimes it seems like we really have to start running before we hit the ground just to keep up!
We arrived in Seattle, Tania from Anchorage and Mike from Dublin, and launched straight into setup for a three weekend run at a Renaissance Festival. We’re pleased to have survived the first weekend. Not only was it nearly 90ºF/32C, but it was also our first duo campout since parting with our beloved VW campervan — our home on the road for 17 years.
After two more weekends in the 16th century we’ll move on to some of our more usual venues: a house concert, a folk music festival and a wooden boat festival. Then it’s thank you very much Washington, and we’re off again!
