Wingfoot pointed out that the cost of inns around there is in the
multiple-hundred dollar range. Neither I nor my girlfriend have a problem
with tenting (or else I wouldn't have spent so many months hiking!), but my
girlfriend's mother is concerned.  She'd prefer us staying at some place

Your monologue on The Gathering proved quite effective, however, and I'm
more interested in going than ever.  I noticed on ALDHA's site
(www.connix.com/~aldha) that they're soliciting speakers.  It may be too
late -- I've not yet gotten a reply -- but would anybody be interested in a
workshop on integrating electronics with the outdoors in an appropriate,
safe, practical manner?  I've got no shortage of stuff to say on that (not
that it's ever stopped me before), but I'd like to know that people would
be interested in attending this.
