Their preset Glamping tents are L85 per night on the weekends but can sleep several people.  If we set our own tents it's L20 per night.  I think even Figgs would be happy with one of their glamping tents.

A Euromoot has always sounded like a cool idea. If I ever happen to be on that side of the pond I'll try to meet up with people, but I hope you guys will take lots of pictures regardless if/when it happens. Very Happy

It's kind of weird to think back on it all, yeah. Laughing And I remember some people being confused about my gender too, which surprised me when I found out, especially because it was already listed on my profile...

Norc wrote:well, i am  a student and everyone i hang around with are between 20-27 so age is actually nothing that i conciously think about when hanging with people. age is just a number. hell, someone in my class is 41 and we treat her like she's 25, even though she has three children (one who's our age) and a husband. and 26 is not old for flying fucks sake!!! jeeez... we are young.

I get what you mean, but I had a not-insignificant age gap going the other way for most of my education. Razz

Norc wrote:also, in comment to what has actually been discussed now (i am always away being drunk when fun stuff happens here Rolling Eyes) but i sense some kind of sadness about the hobbit and general tolkien era coming to an end, but don't be sad. it brought us together, and i am sure we can find lots of other stuff to nerd over Smile like got or doctor who or tortoises ^_^ well well... i am glad the jackson-adventure has calmed down, although lotr (and the hobbit to some degree) will always have a special place in my heart and childhood/young adulecent (dunno how that's spelled sorry)..

That's a good way of putting it. I love you

I prefer to keep the two parts of my life as separate as possible (which is why I have yet to post a photo of myself to this forum) nothing against you guys I'd just rather leseen the chances of being doxxed, and keep my youthful online geekery harder for people to find out...

It's weird isn't it? I've 'known' most of you guys for more than four years by now and pretty well by the standards of online friendships, but if we happened to pass in the street I doubt I would recognise any of you...

I've never felt particularly nervous about it, no. I became active on the Plaza at 14 and having one's real name made public was not uncommon in the Lore circles I moved in, especially for people who had been around since Usenet's heyday and/or who posted Lore writings on their own or others' websites. I had to wait until I was 15 to mention my real name or any other personal info due to a Plaza policy, but I badly wanted to do all the things that it seemed serious Lorists did. Razz So I made my first blog/essay repository shortly after my birthday and my full name was included in the copyright statement. I was also open about my name to the friends I made, especially after I made a Facebook and joined the Plaza's FB group.

There are definitely things about my teenage self that I'm not thrilled are preserved online, but that's an increasingly common occurrence and I think a growing number of people are understanding of it. When I was an undergraduate I tried to keep something of a barrier between my school life and my online life, or at least a one way barrier so people at school couldn't find my Tolkien stuff since some people don't approve of the level of geekiness and time I invested in it. But earlier this year I finally took the advice I'd been getting for a long time and made reference to my experience studying Tolkien and participating in forum governance in my grad school application essays, which evidently worked (or at least didn't torpedo my chances). And as of a few weeks ago I reformatted my polished Tolkien essays and they're now hosted through the University of Maryland website.

To be honest though I don't really think of myself as having an "online persona". I'm more willing to let my guard down and discuss things that I'm passionate about than I usually am around anyone other than family and close friends IRL, but otherwise I'm pretty much the same person. And my family could tell you that I sometimes go on and on like this in person too. Laughing But posting on forums and discovering that there were people who liked me for things other than being good at school (which was the opposite of the message I received at home growing up) ultimately had a really positive impact on my RL social skills as well, though I'm still pretty introverted.

Well I don't own the house (or a car-you'd still have to get the Train to Oxford), so I don't think my parents or siblings would be too keen on the idea of a bunch of odd internet geeks pitching up in the back garden, there's already enough oddness in this household without a random camping group turning up one night...

I like the cut of your jib Halfy Smile That tent looks great ! I feel this forum will keep going, weve known each other long enough to let it go. And we have new projects to shred & rip to pieces, criticize & complain about Smile there are stirrings & rumblings in the underbelly of a new Tolkien world isn't there ? Amazon & their big TV ideas Smile

This is it.  Don't have to do Oxonmoot if we can hang around a fire and people can do tents or glamping or cabins (don't see the prices for those last two though).  Can do day trips into Oxford.






SO FUCKING IN! can we go hiking too? i can't stress this enough. a meet up has to happen and i will go out of my way to scrape up money and join in. And Eldo, for fuck's sake, you're showing up! no excuse (unless trump won't let you in again)

It'd depend on the time of year, among other considerations, but I would enjoy being able to attend a Forumshire Euromoot.

I have a mad image of a drunken party in Petty's garden...

We could try to do a skype session one day perhaps? study (though if we did I'd probably stay off-camera Sofa )

Whoa-ho-ho! Hello, yes please. I mean, I'd stick out like a sore thumb because I don't drink, but I want to do adventurous things while I'm still unconnected from more adult responsibilities. Worst case scenario I accidentally insult everyone at the meet-up and one-half of the forum doesn't talk to me anymore.

It's not exactly central, but for good camping areas I don't know if you can beat somewhere in my state!

P.S.
Norc, it's "adolescent".
