You'll probably find that how much you like camping increases with the increase in the amount of "comfort" camping stuff you take.  A tent you can stand up in was a good start.  Next, you might want to think about a cot with a great pad or air mattress on it.  Oh--and pitch that tent near a great restaurant!

Thank you so much everyone, and especially to Jan.  I was very surprised to find out I had won - wasn't even expecting to place in the top 5!  It was a nice weekend - even trying out camping again for the first time since I was around 14 years old.

Gail's rendition on dulcimer of "Wayfaring Stranger" at the Fiddlers' Convention in Mount Airy, NC, last weekend netted her First Place over a field of former winners (including National Dulcimer Champions!).  I wasn't able to attend, but she gave me a preview Thursday evening and it sounded like a winner to me!  Gail and I became friends after she joined FOTMD about 4 years ago and have been fortunate to meet up and share our love of dulcimers many times.  I just spent a week in NC near her home in Greensboro and was able to jam with her, Karen Smith-Gratto, and Callie Cashwell.  In a couple weeks Callie and Karen will be coming to Kentucky to share lodgings at a bed and breakfast with me at Kentucky Music Week!  I just love how FOTMD enlarges our world and helps us make new dulcimer friends from all over!  And it's even better when we get to meet up in real life!
