Recovered yet? [Aug. 17th, 2009|01:17 pm]


So, have you guys recovered yet?  I'm still unpacking...but have also been running around like crazy as usual.  I had my brothers wedding yesterday and this upcoming week is full of rehearsals, meetings, etc. 

Btw, My fabulous friend Kamille, who is another Pennsic goer and stopped by our camp late after Dan's birthday party, is in NYC and Dancing at Jebon on Wednesday night.  Here are the details http://www.bellyqueen.com/djam.html  I have a reservation already.  Who wants to join me at my table?  let me know :)

So far as Caravanserai stuff is concerned, I think that there might be some big changes coming for next Pennsic.  Dan and I are mulling some things over and would love to get other people's feedback and suggestions.  You can leave messages here either signed or anonymously or email Caravanserai@Materialis.com with your input.  Give us feedback before August 31 because Dan and I would like to make some decisions and get some balls rolling by then.

Also, who's going to Barleycorn?

Miss you all,

Pacita and Daniel

We enjoyed camping w/ ya'll, and having the second set of burners made life much easier when we overlapped cooking. Would it be helpful to get a cooking stove myself, vs the specialty burners? I'm not sure what kind of tank they use.

Not sure how well sharing Shelly's cooler worked for our food. Some stuff was likely too warm. Survivable.

The common space was amazing.

How'd y'all do on the donation front? I'm wondering just how bad the loss was...

The butane burners work on...well...butane canisters. I love them and until last year they were the only stoves we had. I can buy butane canisters in Chinatown at Kam Man on Canal and on rare occasions at Target and Walmart. Since Target and Walmart are not definite sources, I usually buy them in NYC and transport them to Pennsic. I think they cost between $2 and $4 a canister and last fairly long. I think having you guys cook there when the rest of the kitchen is in full swing is a good idea too.

I think some new rules regarding coolers, booze, and stuff in the kitchen will be coming for next year.

We collected $282.57 in cash from the jar. Also, Megan and Greg bought $121 worth of groceries at Sam's Club which became part of the first two night's meals (Thai Night and Dan's Birthday). Laura also bought some of my groceries at Sam's Club too.

Oh and for anyone that's interested, the new storage space costs us $515.16 a year. I paid them $315.16 cash after Pennsic and need to pay them $200 at the end of CTRF when I have more money.
