Besides long and detailed discussions about Santharian matters, playing Santharian games and trying out middleaged, Santharian cooking, we can of course visit some places of interest: Most places can be reached by train easily , for others we might need two cars (well, one driver besides me).



München
Capital of Bavaria, worth visiting several days

Regensburg, an old town which preserved a lot of middleaged flair, has roman roots, visit by train, less then an hour, station near the centre.


Herrenchiemsee, no need to visit Versaille anymore

Kloster Weltenburg, a beautiful church, an excellent beer, a trip on the Danube, where it is forced between high mountain walls (Donaudurchbruch)

Salzburg, for Dala, with the train (Bayernticket)



Roman roots..., only in german

....and much more

Okeydokey, I've started a general table for the Santharian meeting everyone can look up and help to complete. We will add the medieval festival events here and also eventually own events we plan (sightseeing etc.)

This is just a start so far, so it is very fragmentary yet - so make sure to provide the necessary details once you know more. - Are the dates correct for you, Judy & Alysse? Please confirm. To everyone: Let us know details as soon as possible, only then we can do efficient planning!

Here it is: Official Santhmoot Calendar.

Hmm... She wrote "July 7 to July 15" in the last mail I've forwarded you yesterday, Talia - so I'm not sure. Thought as well that it is only from Tuesday till Tuesday. Would require confimation therefore from Judy on the exact dates.

:lol

Just updated it according to the PDF sheet you provided, Talia... Should be much more accurate now concerning who should get which tickets, though of course some things aren't decided yet (e.g. Silfer is currently planned for the 1st and the 3rd weekend etc.) If necessary we could also have one person attend only 2 events and get another one in with an event - we'll see.

Post by: Bard Judith on 24 February 2005, 16:56:00
Our dates are indeed July 7 to July 15!

However, we hadn't thought of taking up root in Talia's backyard the whole time - rather, after the Moot is over we might do a daytrip or an overnight elsewhere in the country, as per Talia's ideas.  Perhaps we could even jaunt back to your hometown with you, Art, before we have to fly out of Munich at 1:15 on the 15th!   Alysse and I are footloose and fancy-free this summer...:lol

That's Vienna, Judy, not just a 'hometown'


Do you have your flights already booked, Judy? Why so late? Then we won't have  much time together to do all what you have already planned :(  

And maybe Art has to go to work again. :wink2  

I didn't propose overnight trips, for they would be too expensive for most, there is enough to look at  just an hour or two away :)

Well, of course we lose some time if you have July 7th until July 15th as date, so we'll be a bit more limited this way. But well, we can't have everything perfect.

If you and your sister, Judy, want to come for a few days to Vienna with me that would be fine as well, though train tickets could cost quite bit costly. I easily have space for two people in my home in Vienna, though my brother lives there as well (though it's not clear whether he'll be in Vienna at all at that time). But anyway, aside from my room we have a double bed and an opportunity to sleep on an expandable couch in the living room, so no problem at all here. Perhaps I'd get an additional day free to accompany you somewhere (though I already require 2 1/2 weeks at the moment for the whole event), but yeah, that would all be theoretically possible.

Ah, Art, you shouldn't have posted this(your ability to accomodate people) so openly! If I recall right, the last time i visited Vienna was during school...

Btw, are you in this new flat now with all this economical and power-saving stuff? And the special water?

Well, this economical power-saving super mumbo-jumbo flat etc. will be the new flat I should move to next year, you know... Currently I'm still in a not so super mumbo-jumbo flat. However, there is space to accomodate two people at least - so for everyone who plans to visit Vienna - no prob:D

Well, as far as I've heard it looks good with Dalá - she's trying now to get the flight confirmed, no excuses anymore (:p   let's hope everything goes well!). Only problem is that it looks that Dalá can only make it from July 1st to 8th - which would mean that she cannot attend any events at all, but she told me that she'd rather miss that than not going to see us guys at all;)   - Well, at any rate: We're looking forward to meeting our Housedragon!

Well, and we should also have Aran for 2 weeks - just don't know when he'll arrive, Artemis;)

No excuses left...:o  (I still haven't really let my mum know yet about going though, d'oh! |I  I'll get to that bridge when I come to it!). Yesh, I'll be missing all the events unfortunately but well, at least I'll get to see Faugar, Talia, Artemis and Art plus Bard Judith and Alysse for two days before I fly off home so I guess you guys will just have to entertain me in lieu of Landshuter Hochzeit :biggrin

Artemis, let's go sightseeing together! Yes, yes?? I've already roped Faugar onto Dala's Grand Sightseeing Tour of Bavaria and Munich :D

How about the rest of the team? Any news?

Post by: Dala Valannia on 17 May 2005, 10:01:00
Not booked and confirmed yet but yeah I'm aiming for that date, arrival is most likely 1st or 2nd July and departure (back to dreary old Singapore) on 8th July :D

Arti, see my last post here.

Yes, I got your mail. I didn't forget it either.

It's just that I still haven't gotten clear info on when my exams are. I've asked everyone who I thought could possibly know, checked all the web pages, but no one could give me a straight answer. I can only hope they're in late June, but if they're around the first week of July, I'm stumped.

I *definitely* will come for the weekend I ordered the tickets for, no matter when the exams are. If necessary, I can study beforehand, return on Sunday night and sleep in the train. But I'd love to come earlier than that - I'll try to find out as soon as possible now and mail you immediately.


What is it with these people that they don't know the exam schedule yet?

Hey there.

Just wanted to say, I didn't forget about the meeting (in case someone cares *ratty laughter*). Couldn't be around for a few months and this probably won't change too soon, but I'd still like to come. Buying the train tickets isn't much of a problem, though I'm not sure about the date. End of june is more likely, I guess.

Please let us know as soon as you can, Fluffy, this might help us to avoid unpleasant last minute surprises as we need to decide what tickets to use when and which ones we need to sell etc. So as soon as you have details, please post!

Pleased to announce:

I just got (half an hour ago) the notification of my Analysis II examination, which is scheduled to be on the morning of 15th July, 8:15.

This means that I will either have to take all kinds of Math stuff with me and sit around studying for the last week past the third weekend, or leave either on Sunday or Monday the 11th to leave enough time.

Sadly, I still don't know the time of my other two exams, Algorithms & Data Structures, and Linear Algebra II. If these are after Analysis, good. If they're in the same week, okay. I just need to leave before the weekend, unless they're on Monday, in which case it would get tight. If they're in the week before that, I'm screwed. I'll keep you updated.

Gaiman is a great writer btw - I read all his books (after reading the first one I bought and read all the others), on Dala's recommendation I think. I'd really consider checking his stuff out Capher! "Neverwhere", "American Gods", "Coraline".. and all the others.

Hey Dala, I'll try to get other tickets for you in exchange for the ones you can't use, not that I think it will work. But there are lot of things to see and enjoy even without a ticket, so the only thing you will really miss is the meal... but, let's see, what we can do in this respect.


I hope all other guests unsure if they can come and use their tickets - I really need to know it soon! Though a lot more people are looked for than tickets are still actually sold or exchanged, it is no guarantee, that we get someone to take the special ticket we want to sell. So make up your mind, tell me the dates when you are coming! I really can't believe, that you don't know your dates of your exams yet, four weeks before they start, that is ridiculous. What are your teachers/professors think that you are?
Well, Aran, take your books with you if needed! We will find a quiet place for you.

Well, I do what I can as well to get oks and precise dates out of people - don't make it that difficult for us! You know, with the tickets there is also money involved, so we need precise information, a bit more than "maybe". And the sooner we have these details, the better. I can only repeat myself.

- Rayne is practically unreachable for example
- Tried to reach Wren as well, no success yet
- Thuja? Can we define precise dates?
- Talked with Lamertu today. He'll check again with Gean Firefeet and get back to me in a day or two on the if and when they plan to come.

I will most likely change my schedule - leave sooner - on the 11th, together with Art (?), but I will come earlier - around 1st/2nd. is that ok?
Talia - you sure you will have enough room to house us all?
Also - do you by any chance have a cdr writer? If so, will I be able to use it while staying there? I plan to take photos, and would like to have the possibility to backup them to cd's (my digital camera can't hold too many at once).

Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 31 May 2005, 14:51:00
We can update the time period, no problem:D  

As for a CD writer: I'll take my notebook with me so that I can e.g. upload pictures to the site etc. - and it has a DVD writer integrated, so I could burn even DVDs, no prob:)   And yup, we should make quite a bunch of photos. And as I see we also have found a photographer;)

We have no DVD writer (well, this Xenox thingy was "Schrott") , but my comp and Johannas can burn CDs, no problem to do a lot of digital pics and save them, till a CD is full.

Seems I have to do some guest-accounts ;)

We have six possibilities to connect a comp to the internet and a flatrate without upload /download limitation and DSL- so no problem :)

Yes, we have a DVD player, but no writer anymore, because it didn't work properly (to the annoyance of Gero who wanted to put all our old family video tapes on DVDs.)

Hail all,

I have been long absent, which isn't good. However, I have bad news of sorts - I can't attend santhmoot. The reason is that I will be working from the 27. june to end of july. Two reasons for the work - avoiding boredom and earning money. I have only today clarified it, so I couldn't give notice before. I am sorry.



Title: Re: Program for the Santharian Meeting 2005

Well, Silfer, the events I have bought tickets  for you are on the 25th and 26th of June, so you could attend at least part of the weekend. (The knights games I can sell easily, the music on Saturday sells not so well) I don't know, if there are (still) cheap flights from Norway to Munich as they are from London to Munich, but would that not be a chance, even if you can't stay for two weeks? Rayne hasn't confirmed yet that she will come, but this is the weekend she will be here, and was it not especially her you wanted to see?

Yes, talia. I checked just now - there are "cheap" flights, roundtrip 4 000 NOK or thereabouts. I can afford that, arriving the 24 and leaving the 26... So yes, it is a possibility. Question: Is it the Franz Josef Strauss airport I am to look for in ticket search? As I am getting other things too in the search for Munich.

I'll take a closer look. Also, I'll reimburse you for the tickets if necessary, of course.

Woo-hoo! (to quote our sage)....

Are they subtitled, or are you going to translate in a running commentary all the way through?   We scored the entire "Three Kingdoms" on video CD in Beijing - in Mandarin with English subtitling - a passion of Bryan's...  

The saga doesn't have as much action as the typical Chinese martial fantasy (and actually a lot less than Crouching Dragon or Hero even) but it's fascinating historically...  

So, yes, although I can't imagine being 'bored' around so many fascinating people, it would be fun to set up a "Fantasy Martial Arts Movie Night" - in case of rain, eh?

Is House of Flying Daggers already released? amazon doesn't have it yet...

We don't have many DVDs , but here is a list what might interest you:

LotR , extended versions
Hero
Tiger & Dragon
Last Samurai
The last Emperor (JungMin)
Pirates of the Caribbean

Odysee 2001/2010
Life in the Freezer (Antarctic)
The future is wild!!!!! Great ideas for new beasts!

.hacksign (terrible english subtitles)

can organise DVDs of the Gibhli-animes if wished (princess Mononoke, Nausica, Kikis deliveryservice... )

ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter Array)
OWL (OverWhelmingly Large Telescop)
- future projects in Astronomy , cool animation, designed on two G5macs! (I know the guy)

and a dozen or so JungMin bought, but she will leave on July, the 6th.


Not that I think we will have a lot of time to watch them :lol

Well, I have masses of DVDs, you know, being a collector in this respect if you so want... Question is if there are movies among them you'd like to see as well:lol

For example I have practically everything of Monty Python if that is something the Santharians would be interested in. I also have a DVD list on the web for you to view, but it isn't completely updated, so I'll get to that this evening and you can have a look around if you find something interesting I could take with me:)

Question, Talia: Do you have a DVD player capable of playing Region 1 code DVDs as well (pure English DVDs, American origin)?

yes, the "house of flying daggers" is region 1 as well, and it's well worth watching!

This looks like should we turn out to be less then expected and end up not liking eachother, we're still be able to enjou=y ourselves - watching dvd's all week :lol

my short list of possibly interesting dvd films I have:

"house of flying daggers" (must see! Very shakespearean plot plus stunning photography, choreaography etc) regio 1
"Big Lebowski" - one of the best comedies of all time. regio 2.
"Dead man" - my favorite film of all times. regio 1
"Willow" - I guess we all know it. regio 2
"Planes trains and automobiles" - John Candy and Steve Martin = superb comedy. regio 2.

All with english audio tracks btw.

Post by: Dala Valannia on 02 June 2005, 10:37:00
My contributions will be :

1) Casshern - a Japanese sci-fi movie set in the future but really it's a thinly disguised fable about tolerance, co-existence and peace :nod   Lovely CGs! (Region 3)

2) The Stormriders - one of those fantasy martial arts movies I've mentioned. Lots of exaggerated gong-fu and pple flying around. Two words sum this up : Mindless fun! (Region 3)

3) Returner - Another Japanese sci-fi movie about time-travel and starring the luscious Takeshi Kaneshiro :loveeyes  

4) Spirited Away - One of my favourite Hayao Miyazaki's works and Oscar winning film! (Region 1)

5) Castle in the Sky - Hayao Miyazaki's older works but it's still as fresh and original and wonderful when it first came out :heart   (Region 1)

So far so good? :wink2  We certainly won't lack for DVD entertainment at Santhmoot!

So - no knight games for me and no music. *sigh* Too bad.

Title: Bardic Circle, Santhmoot 2005
Post by: Bard Judith on 02 June 2005, 13:56:00
Well, on that note I think I may remind you all to start thinking about  what you're going to contribute in  the Bardic Circle!

It can be original or borrowed, medieval or non, Santharian-themed or Terran, filk or folk, long or short... and of course more than one (up to five contributions are welcome!)  

The (broad) categories are as follows -

Performance: Song / Poem / Story / Chant / Dance/ Instrument / etc.
Display: Sketch / Painting / Sculpture / Assemblage / Weaponry / Jewelry / Photography / etc.
Teaching:  Lecture / Demonstration / Receipt Sharing / etc.


This means you might have Thuja reading an original poem, Dala demonstrating some authentic dance steps, Judith and Alysse singing a duet, Talia giving a multimedia astronomy presentation, Art holding forth on elven religion, Faugar showing his latest watercolour, Artemis sharing an inspirational story from a Terran author, Rayne chanting a Styrash incantation....

Get the idea?  Exciting, eh?

I'm certain everyone will have something they'd like to share with their fellow Dreamers - but remember, if you're suddenly overcome with stagefright, you always have the chance to Pick, Pass, or Play...

Play - of course means that you're on stage - centre circle, doing your thing!  Have fun, relax, and go for it!

Pass - you can simply say that you're opting out this time round the circle and wait for your turn to come round again.  If you still feel that you don't wish to share at this time, or in this particular Circle, you are welcome to Pass again.

Pick - you can choose someone else and specifically request that he/she perform - if you choose any of our bards/minstrels/poets, you won't have to worry that they don't have something else up their sleeves to share!  You could also call for a group sing or ask one question you've always wanted to ask in person...


Hope those guidelines encourage rather than intimidate, and I'm looking forward to seeing what our marvelously talented group comes up with!  One further note:  please don't spoil the anticipation by posting anything in this thread, even if you are inspired....  :smile   I'll be making up the night's program, so if you've decided any time before we start getting on our various planes, simply email your ideas/titles to me:

masterbard@poetic.com, appropriately enough  :lol

Hope we don't sit all day in front of the TV watching DVDs... But here's my list - got bored at midday break, so I translated it all to English:)  Unfortunately I'm more into Horror, Sci-Fi and War Films, but maybe you spot something interesting, which would be fun to watch when relaxing in the evening;)  - Oh, and watching something eastern from Dalá also looks interesting for a change:D

@Fluffy: June 24th sounds good, that's the day I arrive as well. Rayne should be there then as well already (or arrive a day later). Actually I guess we still have tickets for the first weekend - Silfer was planed for the first weekend, but unfortunately he can't make it as he stated above. But this means as well that we should have tickets for you:)

Art, Silver might come for the first weekend (only), but we have enough tickets left, so Fluffy can have two tickets (Music and knightgames) as well . Christophs girlfriend might come as well, so now we have no tickets left for the first weekend, but two free sets for the other *sigh, lol*
I have to go and check again... ;)

DVD-player: I'm not sure, well, Christoph was not too sure , if the american/british DVDs will run... he ..ehh.. did some things to the player, so that it now plays nearly everthing, chinese DVDs are ok.

Dala, I think Christoph has Spirited Away, so no need to bring this one (will ask him).

Judy, your ideas are great ! The astronomical things I leave to Gero though - if he is here, that is.

Btw, if you bring with you nice weather, especially clear nights - I have a (not too big)telescope.

Talia, actually, I do hope it won't be too warm. Everything above 25 degrees makes one almost-unconcious-and-quite-zombielike rat.

About that bardic circle... hm... is there a guitar in the house?

Hey, you can?No you didn't mention it! That saves me nearly 100€, for it is needed again - wanted to call for my smart young man  :p  who does it regularly before Santhmoot, but if you know how to do it - that would be great! Are you sure, you have the time to do it before the bardic circle and want to bring your tuning hammer with you?
But beware, it is an old piano from 1933, though with some new interior.(It was very interesting to watch  two to four men  carrying the 300+kg up my half round staircase when we were moving in!  Threre was a lot of swearing! :lol )

I'll be at the fair the 24th through the 27th, I think. I'll need to check with my dad about that. We still need a place to stay. :o

I won't be able to go to the actual Santharian meeting, since I'll be in school (and be working on moving into my condo). It's a little depressing to miss it. I would have looked forward to maybe playing guitar and singing at least one of the Santharian poems I wrote. Maybe next time, though. :(  :: sigh::

As I said above (and now realize that it's all been wiped out so I'll have to repost, grrrrrrrrrr :explode  ) there is a broad range of categories in which people can display their talent - from showing off the ringmail you made last summer to whistling your national anthem...   :clap    If 'grace' were required I'd be sitting out!

BTW: It looks as if the ezBoard restoration messes even more up... When you look back a page at this thread you'll see User: unknown and the message (This post cannot be restored). Well, and if I remember correctly the talk about DVDs started after the assault on ezBoard, and it looks as if these posts were deleted now during "restoration"...

@Dala: Well, I don't have Star Trek IX and X - the special editions aren't out yet. But nothing beats the original stuff:broadgrin

"From Hell" I can bring. Though it has Johnny Depp it is at times a pretty gory movie and in general not that impressive - well, it deals with the Jack the Ripper case, so that's that... The actor who played Bilbo Baggins is also in there...:)

You get more from Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribean or Chocolat. BTW: I only recently discovered that Johnny Depp was in the original Nightmare on Elmstreet as well in his teeny-years - quite funny to compare him to now... :lol

Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 05 June 2005, 00:11:00
I have lots of Laurel & Hardy (Dick & Doof in German) on DVD as well as you probably saw, Talia:)  Though what I always hate with this recent DVD boom is that if you like something very much and buy the first film which is published, you can bet that in a few months they do a special edition and after a while release a whole collection, and even later perhaps some sort of super-collection, for a much better price... That happened with Laurel & Hardy and for example with the Alien series. And if you're a fan and got the first DVDs you feel pretty foolish...:crazy

2010: I've seen that one a long time ago and don't even remember the plot in detail anymore, but it was not a Kubrick film - and as far as I remember from seeing it last time it took away quite a bit of the mysticism Kubrick has created. Besides Kubrick used the Blue Danube waltzer! :lol  Guess I should watch 2010 again sometime, it has been really a while;)

BTW: Had a chance to talk to Wren yesterday. She has various appointments during the time of the meeting, but if there are no appointments on Monday and Tuesday after the 9th July weekend there might still be a chance for her to get to the meeting if her mate accompanies her. She still has to check, though. But so far that's just theoretical. Problem is, she won't fly, because she has problem with planes - so this makes it more complicated. But well, just let's hope for the best - I'll keep you informed, she should know by next week if there is a chance. Don't hold your hopes to high, however.

I just found out my exams will be:

Linear Algebra II - July 4th (Monday after second weekend),
Algorithms - July 11th (Monday after third weekend), 8:15 AM
Analysis II - July 15th (Friday after third weekend).

Needless to say, I'm just a little miffed.

Stand by while I look for ways to travel back to Aachen Sunday night, or reschedule that pesky Alg&Dat somehow.

Gah!

When will you do the bardic circle again, I forgot - is it the third weekend or in the week before? I'd really hate to miss that...

Edit: Though I suppose I can easily come earlier as well. I'd just need a short leave for the first (LAII) on Monday 4th... (assuming I study enough before then). Let me just check the calendar, and I'll try to come up with a solid date right away.

Arti, I'll mail it to you as well just in case this post is deleted in the next crash before you can read it.

The time of the bardic circle is a bit tricky, it was planned for the 8th, with Judy and Alysse coming on Thursday. But Dala leaves on Friday, and I don't know yet, when Judy will arrive, so that we could make it on the 7th.

Art! Silfer will come on the 23th (probably) late in the evening and leave on the 26th.

Hah, just not my good month, huh?

Here's my suggestion:

I can split my visit (I don't need a plane after all, and I suppose I can afford another set of train tickets). I know *definitely* that I can come on Friday 24th of June (no lectures on Fridays), and stay over the weekend. I am not sure (read "probably not") if I can stay for the rest of the week though, since I can't take vacation on a day with lectures.

If I cannot stay for the rest of the week, I'll have to leave on Sunday 26/7, and not return until 4/7, just after having sat my exam (ie, after the second weekend). I'd then stay until the third weekend (which iirc my tickets are for), and leave again on Sunday as early as possible to return in time for my exam on Monday 11/7.

In any case, if the bardic thing will be on the 7th, I can almost definitely be around then.

I'd leave out that first visit but it'd really be a pity to miss Silfer and Rayne. If it is inconvenient, I could also come just one day without sleeping over.

Darn! Nothing is inconvenient, but please don't expect too much looking after you from my side either :p  - therefore no inconvenience :D

Aran, take into consideration, that the knightgames are quite late on Sunday (see my post for Silfer). That early beginn at 8:15am is really evil! But we will surely find a solution!

Ok, so I see Silfer can stay for a weekend and Aran should be able to be there on two weekends - sounds good, even though the dates are still a bit shaky. I tried to update the Santhmoot Calendar a bit to reflect this, see here.

So it seems we're getting a good bunch together for the first weekend as well:D  - But we need to count our tickets now methink, Talia: How many have we got for the first weekend? Does Rayne's dad has seperate tickets from the four I have at the table? Guess so, or?

And I need details from Thuja & daughter!

Talia: So the knight games are in fact after the Lagerleben on Sunday? I might have to miss that, but other than that, sleeping in a train wouldn't be new to me.

Very important: Since I'll be coming by train, what is the name of the station I should come to?

Edit: I just assume it is a station that the bahn.de website gave as  "Landshut(Bay)Hbf".

Well, it appears that the trip will take a total of six 1/2 hours. Ouch. Better bring something good to read...

There's one leaving Aachen West at 7:55 AM, and arriving 14:25, for €55.

Alternatively, I can take a night train, leave at 23:43, arrive at 10:25 in the morning (ie. 11 hours later) and, surprise surprise, pay only €44,50... Hum: "Hinweis, Längerer Aufenthalt."

*Checks*...

Aaahh, yes. Well, better than I expected (I anticipated waiting four hours from 3 AM to 7 AM somewhere in a tiny train station). It's only a short "wait" from 1:28-2:58 in Duesseldorf Hbf, which I suppose would be bearable. The return trip, however, has 1:44 hours in Duesseldorf, and that's better than another option which has 2:33 hours in the same place. It looks like Duesseldorf would be the "hook".

Mmmmmh again. Isn't Duesseldorf *this close* to Duisburg, and even reachable by car? Perhaps I'm approaching this issue from the wrong side of things.

From the time issue, at least, yes. It would be far more convenient to just leave from Duesseldorf directly, especially since my student ticket covers a trip to Duesseldorf. However, that would double the price. So I'll have to spend some time finding out exactly why a shorter distance and time makes a higher price. Perhaps that "Route finder" isn't all that good after all...

I need Talia's expertise on this question!!

If I were to arrive by plane at Frankfurt, how do I get to Munich by train? How long would the journey take and will it expensive??

@Aran:

No!
Knightgames: 16:30
Lagerleben: 17:30

It is like that: The Lagerleben is open the whole day - well, nearly. You can sit there(outside, there is a fence) and have some of the Bratwurst/friedfish type thing to eat - if you get a seat, that is - you are in the medieval surrounding, but there is not much to see, for all the interesting people, the princess and her court are watching the knightgames. Afterwards it is more interesting, but you should not be there , if you afraid of big  crowds of people.

@ Dala:

It is more convenient for you to get to Munich, if possible, but that might not be an option, I know (JungMin has to go to Frankfurt as well)
I look for the train timetable and post it here soon.It is possible however, if you have a credit card, to buy the ticket online and print it out. Prize should be available as well.

@ Artimidor: Thuja will arrive on thursday night by trian - without daughter :(

All right then, Talia. Depending on how long the Lagerleben lasts, I might even be there still, since it appears that I can travel by night. But I'll have to manually check the timetables, since after that price fauxpas I do not trust the Bahn's automatic routefinder one bit. <_<

((Honestly, Aachen->Duesseldorf->Landshut is €55, and Duesseldorf->Landshut is double that?!)

@Aran  55€ seems cheap, for Dalas Frankfurt-Landshut is about 60€..

But you have to double check, even on the counter.
When JungMin went to Switzerland with her parents, we found in the internet a prize of 255€ - on the counter the man wanted far over 300€. I asked again, he typed in the same information - and voila, 100€ were saved. He didn't know, why the system had reacted like this.

Ok, so I assume - as we have tickets for Thuja for the Saturday/Sunday events - this means he'll stay at least until Sunday. As I further assume that he'll be there at Sunday evening like most, I'd say Thuja will stay at least until Monday. Too bad that his little daughter can't come.

But I've updated the Calendar accordingly, see here. It is also ordered now more or less chronologically, allowing an easier overview hopefully.

Are you by any chance speaking some German? If yes, my husband would take you to something called "Universtity night" with lectures on several topics - my son Christoph is one of the organisers and has sheduled Gero for 1am , topic exoplanets, interested?Otherwise he will drive you home.

@ Aran: If you could leave not on Sunday, but on Monday 27.6., you could go to the knight games on the 26.6., there is one ticket left. That might be more convenient for you.

Well, maybe I should actually count the paper tickets - so far I checked only my spreatsheet :lol

Art, somewhere above is already Artemis arrival time.

Wait, so you got 255, at the counter they got 300, and after trying again they got 200? Wow... I'd have pestered him to try again, see if I'd have paid 50 the next time. Honestly, what is it, a ticket vendor or a slot machine?

oh, and I will have to by a ticket from Munich to Landshut when I arrive in Munich, because of the limitation of this stupid dutch railway system - I can either buy tickets online, but only to a selected number of cities (munich is one of them), OR I can go see a travel agent OR go to a major city in Holland where they actually sell the international tickets at their railways stations... >:
When I get to Landshut station (there are 2 - which one do I need to take, Talia?) - what do I do next? do I phone Talia (it'd be good to have her tel number -can you email it to me, Talia?) or what? I can't say exactly when I will arrive, because of the above, but it should be somewhere in the morning (before 9 am?)

would it be worth the trouble for you? Also - if you have to pickup Dala from the airport on the same day at the morning, it wouldn't be possible , right? Well - we'll see when we have the complete time schedule I guess :)

That would be not a problem either, for Moosburg is on the way to the airport.

Just thought you might be interested in the webcams of landshut - nothing to see from the preparations though.

Ok, I've added Judy's and Artemis' details to the general Santhmoot table as there won't be any change for sure. Silfer, if you have a flight number or something, let us know as well - the more info the better:)

BTW: When looking for Artemis' info I saw that the beginning of the DVD discussion wasn't really deleted form this thread, there is just one full page of "can't restore posts" post in between the posts (page 3/4), but actually it's all there...

Talia, that's strange... those are simple tickets, no return, right? Because I'm sure I didn't check any BahnCard option, and I got about half that.

Also, the SparNight offer doesn't extend to Landshut Hbf... a suggestion where I should go to instead?

@Talia: I assume when coming from Vienna I also need to have Landshut Hauptbahnhof as destination - am I right?

There are 3 possibilities for me on Friday the 24th, guess I'll take the 10:30 train, so I'd arrive on 14:55 on Landshut Hauptbahnhof with 4 1/2 hours of travel. - That ok?

P.S. Do you have a mobile phone, Talia? If so, don't forget to give us your number!

@Art: I have a mobil phone, I can mail you all my number, but I'm a bit oldfashioned with it -
- most times, I forget it at home
- if I don't forget it, I forget to switch it on
- If Ihave switched it on, I need too long to recognise , that it is my phone
- If I hear it, I have problems with they keys

oh well, you get all my normal number as well ;)  and a map of the surrounding etc.

Btw, anyone here with a driving licence and a little practise? For I'm going to reregister my old car, so that we will have enough transport capability.

And yes, from your direction, Landshut/NB (Hbf) is the only trainstation available, Moosburg(Isar) is just of interest for those coming from Munich.

@Aran. I tried to phone the serviceline of this NightSpar, but it was too busy, maybe I give it a try short before midnight.

I don't know, where you get your prizes from, what I know is, that Christoph pays 100€ from Munich to Hannover with the 50% bahncard for a returnticket. (5 hours durance - or more??).What I posted was just what I found under bahn.hafas.de

And yes, Munich would be the best option for you if you want such a special offer, there are good connections to Moosburg or Landshut. If you have a normal ticket, Landshut might be better, for some connections go over Nürnberg-Regensburg.

Do you really want to waste your time with sleeping ? :lol

Well, now that I'm again asked, if i have enough beds for all - yes I do! Nobody has to sleep in a tent!

Two rooms are not finished - they have no proper wall, or the plaster is not yet there, but they are neertheless quite nice!

The only problem could be, but don't has to, if we do a list - we still have just one shower/bathtube, for the craftsmen didn't manage to finishe the upper bathroom. So we have just two toilets.

Sleeping shedule:

Upper unfinished bathroom: One to two beds - Internet, No toilet
Other bedrooms

Lowest level(no cellar!) Guestroom: The "girls": Dala, Artemis

Unfinished room next to it: The "boys" four beds available

Bedroom area: Christoph's room for Judy and Alysse, for by then JungMin is gone. (One 130x200cm bed, the other 80x190cm)
Internet, big desktop, space for more!

Yes, we have 240 sqm available.

And..............I've finally booked a flight to Munich!!!! If all goes well, I will arriving at Munich Intl Airport by Thai Airways at 7pm on the 1st July!

Departing: 8th July, 9.40pm. So I guess this means I have to be back at the airport by 7pm to check in and all that.

Trivia: A return airtix from Sin-Muc by Thai Airways cost Euro$631.16 :  And this is considered one of the cheapest flights during the peak summer season...|I

(Talia, so sorry but 1st July is the best I can do, can't get away from work and school any earlier than that)

*goes to check list*

Dala!!!! And all other present the middle weekend: Salzburg is sheduled for Saturday the 2nd July!

I will check my bedding stuff again, but I don't think you will need sleeping bags.

You should have bought tickets to make money, Talia! They'd be a great source of income... :lol

I can provide my details as well in the meantime of my "There and back again" - I'll arrive at Friday the 24th on 14:55 on Landshut Hauptbahnhof via Regionalbahn RB 26715, Gleis 6. I'll leave on Monday the 11th, on 13:04, Regionalbahn RB 26712 Gleis 5 (details were added already to the Santharian Calendar). Hope these dates don't interfere with any other people's arrivals.

@Judy: If you plan to go with me to Vienna for a few days, here the costs: The travel Landshut-Vienna and back costs 89.40 Euro for me (108.205 USD, 133.955 CAD), don't know if it will be any cheaper if you buy your ticket in Germany and make puppy eyes - but that's the regular price for an adult. Perhaps if you go back after 3 days already it will be cheaper. Anyway, if you accompany me to Vienna on the 11th on 13:04 we'd arrive on 17:34 in Vienna, so I guess that's leaves us ample time in the morning to get prepared and in the evening to unpack etc.

Seems I got a better bargain;)  - Preparations are coming along nicely I see, and I see you also have a digital camera obviously, Talia, cause we need one to make a lot of pictures and later make some sort of photo album for the site. Or put some pictures already up before the rest of the gang will join us a week later or so;)

BTW: It wouldn't hurt if we have photos of all the members we should recognize when picking up, e.g. of Artemis, Alysse etc. - maybe you have one, which you can send me to update your membership page and to help us picking up the right guys!

Yeah - I would like to know as well how you'll know when to pick me up from Moosburg (?), Talia?

Oh, and when the first Santharians arrive - do make pickures and post them here!

I see, so no detour to Toronto then, Silfer:)   And well, Silfer might have changed quite a bit, but I guess he's still the same... - BTW: The latest version looks much more like the ezBoard icon, eh? ;)  We also have an older photo with his cat, this one, for comparison:



I've once more updated the Santhmoot Calendar with the latest information I know, also adding departure times, see here.

The departure time of Artemis I don't have at the moment, this was swallowed by ezBoard - please post again! Also to all others: Aran, Faugar etc. please post precise arrival times once you know where you should be picked up.

@Judy: No problem to get an additional day off for me if you want to accompany me to Vienna, so I have the Tuesday free. As departure time I have used my departure time for now (and below the Munic airport time) - should something change here I'll have to update it.

Ok, Santhmoot Calendar was once more updated. So we need details basically from Aran and Fluffy (and Rayne of course) methinks as they should arrive already on Friday.

And here's my photo. Heh, what a poser I used to be.



It's quite old, two years maybe, but I haven't changed much. Well, the hair's a bit longer and there's a moustache and a beard now.

The train number is EC 61, if I understood the ticket correctly, and it's arriving to the 17th track.

I see also on the calendar that we have planned tickets for you on the second weekend, while you'll be there now on the first, so we'll probably have to improvise here a bit. But we'll see how we can handle that.

However, I adore his hair and if he ever cuts it I shall be very upset, although our parents wont!

Fluffy, as I told you via email already, I can't pick you up at that time, for it will take some time till I have him and we can leave the airport again - and I need to go shopping afterwards. (@Silfer: I have planned to take you to Ikea to buy two new beds)


You have to drive to Moosburg from München (I won't pick up anybody from München train station, no way - I would have to go there by public transport as well), f.e. with this connection or a later one, I have to find out how much time I will need for shopping

München Hbf         23.06.05         ab         13:25         26                 RE 30692         RegionalExpress
Fahrradmitnahme begrenzt möglich, Imbiss und Getränke erhältlich
Moosburg         23.06.05         an         13:58         1

Hopefully the car is big enough to get you in with the beds ;)

NOTE to all, who are coming before Artimidor arrives: You will have to work hard ! :D
well, maybe not bad to have some strong guys to carry the food home ! :lol

Outward Journey: 04-07-05
Breda (NLD) 08.19u
Landshut (GER - BAY) 17:28u

Return Journey: 11-07-05
Landshut (GER - BAY)  10:32u
Breda (NLD) 19:15u

He should show up at the Forum soon as well hopefully:)  

Hope you can manage the Moosburg travel, Fluffy, seems you need to wait a while, though, until you can move on. But yeah, I hope even if there are a few delays here and there we can all manage it together;)  

P.S. Also wrote an e-mail to Rayne asking for further details, so let's hope we get those as well soon:)

Going from Munich station to Moosburg is not a challenge... You could have a look at Munich while waiting for the train, Fluffy, the station is not far from the centre (Stachus, Marienplatz with the townhall, Frauenkirche...)

Well, I think it would be cheaper to take a train from Landshut to Moosburg, since I paid for the train to Landshut anyway. Waiting is, as I said, not a problem, only have to find a good book.

Though I believe the airport is quite some distance from the train station.;)  

Getting ready to book my tickets right now (yes, it's 3:45 AM here, so what? I work best at night, esp. in Summer when it's insanely hot during the day...)

By the way Arti: You put me down for 4th of July, but as it turns out my exam is on the afternoon of that day, which means I will arrive either in the very late evening hours or the next day (5th). Doesn't matter that much, but I'll not be there for most of the fourth...

Now to book the tickets:

Leaving from Mönchengladbach HBF
24.06.05, 0:54

Arriving in Düsseldorf HBF
24.06.05 1:27

Leaving from Düsseldorf HBF
24.06.05 2:58 (90 MINUTES WAITING?!)

Arriving in Regensburg HBF
24.06.05 9:24 (long sleep)

Leaving from Regensburg HBF
24.06.05 9:44

Arriving in Landshut (Bay) HBF
24.06.05 10:25

Cost of ticket (with return): 125€
(I can go to Mönchengladbach on my normal student ticket).

Yes, I need to bring some good books for that, but otherwise I can manage. ;)  

Edit: Scratch that, my father agreed to pay me the difference in prices if I will travel "in a civilized way", by which apparently he means not having to wait from 1:30 to 3:00 to see Düsseldorf By Night.;)  So I am going to leave from Duisburg I guess.

Fine Aran! That is very convenient - I pick you up from the train station and you can help me shopping by ALDI  ;)  

@Fluffy: As Aran pointed out, the airport is an fair amount away from the town, it would take me quite a while to get from the airport into the centre of Munich by car, half an hour would be an excellent time, but it could be 1 1/2 hours as well -. we never go by car to Munich centre, but use always public transport. I do visit my son sometimes by car - but that can take quite some time as well, we nearly missed the beginning of our last concert, because we were stuck in a traffic jam - and we didn't even try to get near the centre.

Wow, things have changed a bit since I last posted here... so many smilies :speechless  (and the fact that this is my third time trying to post because every time I somehow miss a field and all my text is gone :explode )

*waves shyly*

It's been a while since I wrote my last entries for the compendium and I fear the maps of the Santharian world that I still on my HD are terribly outdated. But, I still have the newest Santharian backgrounds at my desktop :smile
When I visited Art this winter in Vienna, he convinced me to come, even I didn't known half the people that were coming. I think I even know less :b , but I really look forward to this week, meeting people new and old.

Those who arrive and go home before july 4th (when I arrive), have a great time in Bavaria! I'll make sure to visit this thread every once in awhile to get an update at what your people are doing...

Hello again, Gean!

Nice to see someone from the early days again - I see you join in December 2000, so that was nearly 5 years ago... Sure, quite a bit has changed, but basically Santharia has kept its spirit methinks;)  And sure you still remember Dalá, Faugar or Bard Judith and Talia, who took over down there in the south:D

We'll see to put some pictures up from the first people arriving, perhaps make some special updates directly on the site so that you get an idea what awaits. We'll see:)

Talia: I have managed to get tickets to a CityNightLine to München, which means I'll arrive in Landshut at 8:12 AM on Friday. This is the final arrival time, no more uncertainty, no more changes I hope. I have the tickets. ;)  

Edit: I'll also get my sister's digital camera. For that, I owe her a large icecream next week...:lol  

Edit II: Talia, since I won't have internet access while on the way, here's my phone number just in case (for example if we don't find each other at the station or something, or I lose my way). 0176 2941 4691. No, I'm not too worried about someone finding this number and prank calling.;)

I missed Silfer!!!!!!!!!!!!

The plane arrived 15 minutes earlier, I didn't find a parking space and had to wait some time till I got an empty one - and when I went to the point where all the visitors are joining the main area - no Silfer! I ordered a call for him, infact two, Silfer from Oslo and Silfer from the Santharian Dream arriving from Oslo (the man asked twice, lol) - nobody showed up. Gero looked on our teampage for his real name, but the lady at the LH counter didn't want to tell me, if he was on the plane. So I picked up Fluffy in Moosburg, and drove home :(
Hope he will phone sometime.

Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 24 June 2005, 08:51:00
Well, Silfer, perhaps there would be a theoretical chance if you have some more money and call the airline for a last ticket chance tomorrow or something. Would still be worth a try at least. Maybeyou can fly as a substitute or something.

As far as I see today at 18:00 or something there are still flights possible at Lufthansa. Give that a try!

It has to be said: This definitely doesn't earn a prize, Silfer, and with a little attention all could have been avoided easily... Dates and times including weekdays could be found since a week or so at the Santhmoot Calendar. I feel especially sorry for Talia, who had to go all the way to the Munich airport, desperately searching for you and I can imagine how worried she got - also because there was no call from you or something. I guess it should be in our responsibility as guests to see that our host has as little trouble with us as is possible - and this definitely wasn't the best example. Whenever I go somewhere or pay a high price for tickets or anything else I check things double and trice, and it should be evident that you do that as well. So I feel deeply sorry for Talia at the moment that she had so much trouble already - but I hope at least Fluffy arrived in one piece;)  

Silfer - please check if there is still a slight possibility to catch another plane, today or tomorrow, we shouldn't leave things unattempted. Perhaps someone has to cancel for some reason.

Hmmm... Looking at the practical side of things this would mean: If Silfer cannot come, we definitely have tickets for Fluffy without having to swap. Also tomorrow we'd be all German speaking then.

Well, let's hope there's still a way for Silfer to make it over here.

Basicly the things that make really put a hault on any serious planning for a Canada/North Amarica meet is that many can not travel  mostly due to age. We tried to figure out some central point that most of us can get to, but in the end too few have prospects of being able to make the trip. :|

Yeah, Dala, hot and sunny in the moment, up to 33 degrees (Celsius)

Picked up Aran successfully! Recognized him over the whole length of the rail - but he teased me ;) , went over to track 6, the train was arriving at track 5!

OMG, it has actually begun. There's this feeling of anticipation now flowing throughout my body. I think it'll be a great time!!!

I noticed the pics a few pages back, so perhaps it's appropiate to post one here as well. The guy on the left would be me... The smile is a little overdone, but what could I do? We we're playing Twister, perhaps the most humorous floor game in the world :biggrin

Hey, Gean, had to remove your picture as it needs a password to be shown... Maybe you can send it to me and I can upload it on the Santharian server.

On other notes: We're here with Talia and just had dinner! We - that would be Aran, Fluffy and me. And Rayne just called, so Talia is picking her up right at this moment!

I'm meeting people here I never thought I'd see in person in my life. Still seems unreal, because everyone looks almost as I pictured them (I wonder if I do?).

Talia, just wait til I get there and I'll give you one of my super-special high-powered amazing back-rubs.  Trust me, your back will feel much better afterwards.  I do them for Bard Judith and other family members all the time, and I'm much stronger than I look. Um.  Not that any of you actually know how I look, as no pictures of me have yet made it to this site.  I'll try to get one up before the Bard and I get there.

Still no pictures from Talia here as I can see, but we'll get to them this evening!

P.S. Preview pictures are a bit smaller now, because I already preapre things for posting them official ly on the site in a special update.

Oh, and right at the moment preparations for the great Santharian medieval feast are in progress - Talia even made an own menu, so we'll have Stratanian Injeruillin first, then Smoked Chrondra Pork in Filo Pastry, then Green Salad with Alianian Radish, Brown Loibla, Red Eyelian Fruit Helly with Lavano Sauce, and, and, and... :D    - Bon appetit!

BTW, some news from the development front: The presence of some nightly insects along with the abscence of entries Aran has done this year resulted in the fact that he started an entry on some giant monster moth in the meantime - and I didn't even have to use any kind of torture instruments;)

Uhmmm... People here complained that you probably won't quite understand the meaning of these pond pictures. Well, for one it shows that we take pictures of practically everything, simply because we feel the importance to have a full documentation of the events going on here. So... As you can see it rained pretty much yesterday (34 l in 10 minutes) during our dinner, and on the other hand Talia wanted anyway to have a pond in her garden. So - problem solved as you can see.

Artimidor told me to post. Um... he told me to say "I´m still here. I´m fine." I´m still here. I´m fine. I leave tomorrow (so sad) and plan to run-away back to Talia´s sometime soon. (Shhh... it´s a secret!)

I´ll post when I get back to the States to let everyone know that I made it back all right.

We might want to think about the next Santharian meeting. Right now I think it would be best to have it in 2008 (the 10th anniversary), maybe in the US this time. I think we should have it in California. We can discuss all that later, though.

I guess I´ll post later. Ja.

Try two for a picture of one of the future guests (Gean's on the left). Please carry on with the current Santhmoot pics, they're absolutely thrilling, even if they have mere ponds as subject matter.

There's a Renaissance Faire here in Hollister.

Is there an actual possibility I can ride? I will bring my riding stuff if so, but I don't want to carry it on the journey if there is nowhere I could ride!

I think that's all.

Hey, Artemis!

No towel, no sleepingbag needed. (But bathing suit!)

Riding - well, I was in this stable last week I told you of, and there are two Haflinger you could ride and maybe a more arablike one. It is not the most wellkept place though, I had the impression, but it is up to you to decide. There is a "normal" riding place where you can take lessons and such about 10 to 15 minutes to drive away, but that would be not a problem either. So take your stuff with you.

(click on image to enlarge)



At the top you can see Aran the piano wizard, Rayne is at the bottom left with her guitar, at the center you see Artimidor with the book in the hand and to his left Talia in Shendar dress:D    Oh, and did you notice this little rat there as well? That would be Fluffy... :lol  

Some more notes on the pictures above: I see I'm looking as if I've fallen asleep at this one picture with Fluffy and Rayne, but yeah, at least Fluffy and Rayne look cool on this image, so I've put it up;)  

At the last picture you see the princess's wagon, but unfortunately she isn't clearly visible here and waves in the other direction - but I guess we have some more pictures of the bride and the groom.

Aw! You better come to the Santhmoot meeting if I'm there, Aran :hug  (or I'll have to hunt you down and drag to it)!

Capher: :o  What is this showing my pictures to boys! Boys have cooties! :lol  Kidding. Boys can be nice. ;)  The boys at Santharia were very sweet! Such gentlemen!

Arti and me?! Don't say that! (The other Santharian women might get me). o_o;

I made it to Zurich (after crying at the train station at having to leave Landshut and everyone there :(  ). I leave tomorrow to go back to the states, but I already miss everyone. I have to come back and visit Talia soon (hopefully next summer). Maybe I can learn German when I come back!

Thank you so much, Talia, for providing your house and treating all of us with such hospitality. You were so kind and obviousl worked very hard to bring us all together. Thank you. :hug

Yeah, I saw Talia.  Actually I kind of thought Talia was in some of the other pictures but i was not sure.  Now I am.

Rayne, these boys as you call them, are in their early twenties.  My son is only the youngest at age nineteen.  They all called you "HOT!!":broadgrin  

It seems Talia that you have people coming and going all the time.  I want to thank you and your husband for doing this.  I can not imagine the work you put into it.  And the pictures, what a treat!!

I love it all.  By the way we have a renassiance fair in Wisconsin as well.  It's between Germany and California, so everone could meet in the middle, sort of, except those from the far east.  Just my own two san's worth in the voting.

Capher.

All I can say that if you hold another Santhmoot in Canada, it had better be a road trip or something and somebody had better come see me in Alberta.

We also have an abundant amount of tourist attractions. Such as...er...the biggest mall in the world. And the oil sands. Oooo, oil sands. What else do we have? Oh!

Anybody want to learn how to snowboard? :evil

Talia and her husband Gero are very friendly, and they make a perfect job with being everywhere, just to make the experience perfect for everyone. I couldn't have imagined any better host, so I'm sure that everyone who comes will enjoy it here with the rest of the gang:D   Talia is just a bit picture shy, but she's organizing everything perfectly - so big applause to our lady of the house and her incredible husband!!! Woo-hooo! :clap   :clap   :clap  

Yesterday we sent a mail to Juju's mom clarifying what to buy for Juju's birthday and have some more details now, so we'll see to fetch this stuff. Later we relaxed a bit by watching DVDs like Fawlty Towers and Blackadder - Artemis probably knows these series inside out as she's from the UK;)   We're picking her up this evening from the Munich airport...

I might have some more pictures prepare later in the day, we'll see.

@Art, Wow those pictures are fantastic.  Whoever took them knew what he/she was doing.  I love all of the costumes and such.  So did they have a pig roast yet?

You know the kind where all the guests wash their fingers in a finger bowl, after they have thrown the bones, with pieces of meat upon them on the floor.  And then the scullry maids have to rush around filling goblets with wine, getting a sharp slap on the behind, by some lord.    :D

Flying off this coming Friday morning and I've not finished an important essay and packing as well :x  *mutters something dire under her breath*

Anyway, yes, about Munich airport! Is someone picking me up? If so, where should I wait inside the airport so I won't wander off unsuspectingly?? And if no one is picking me up, please tell me which train I can take to Talia's house from Munich! I don't mind if no one is free to pick me up, it'll be fun to bumble my way to Landshut, only I need specific directions :)

Edit:

Dalá: Much as I am sure Talia will pick you up at the airport - a bus goes from Munich Airport to Freising twice an hour at :27 and :47, taking 18 minutes. ( :45, :05 ) I'm not sure of the ticket price though, I expect they'll have bilingual instructions on the ticket vending machine, especially at an airport terminal. A train goes from Freising to Moosburg at apparently irregular intervals (always from Platform 4), but depending on when you'll arrive, you'll have to wait any time from a few minutes up to an hour.:eek

However, we have so many pictures that I first post all images here on the Message Board before they become offical Santharian Santhmoot pictures later.

I fear we don't have any Aran pics from the tournament as his batteries were already pretty low (he made quite a lot of photos during the marriage trek though you can see also above) - and though he made some at the tournament they are quite pixelated and couldn't be posted.

So the pictures you see at the last post I made are those Gero took (Talia's husband) . Just checked the camera and it's a Minolta Dimage F200. Lens: Minolta GT Lens 7.8-23.4 mm 1:2.8-4.7 Aspherical. But Talia says the zoom doesn't work properly.

As regards this whole discussion about sleeping in:  I am in whole hearted agreement that only weird people get up before 9:00 a.m.  Mind you, since I had my first child seven-and-a-half years ago, I've never slept past 7:00 a.m. unless somebody else had my kids overnight (I love my children's grandparents!)  And I'm a lucky parent, judging from what other parents tell me about their darlings being awake and ready to party at 5:30.  (I prefer to think of it as being a good parent, i.e., one whose children will go back to bed when they are told to.)

I made it back to the States OK, and I'm in the process of moving into my condo.

California would be nice to have the next meeting because so many people live there, but the Renaissance fair seems to move around a lot. I'm not sure where it will be in 2008. It may be over an hour and a half drive to get there. However, at least where I am, we have the beach about half an hour away, and San Francisco in 45 minutes, so we're no lacking things to do.

Where are the other Californians located? My home is in Saratoga, near San Jose.

Helen Elise, I am guessing from experience. I have never played a board game against anyone more than four years younger than me and won - either they just outwit you, or they take the game much more serious than you.;)  

And yes, I guess I'd sleep in as well if I didn't have a job that required me to come in at 8:00. Well, this morning I rose at 5:30, and I normally get up any time between 6:00 and 7:00. When I lived with my parents and had a two hour train ride to work, I had to get up at 5:00 every day.:speechless

Storms in Southwest Germany. Here in Aachen and over there in Landshut we only had some rain, but apparently they had some major trouble halfway between.

Side note: Note that the only reason there was an English language article about the thunderstorm was that it happened to hit a soccer stadium.;)

Just a little update: We were all in Munich today and went sightseeing the whole day, but guess who - among all our get-the-train stress - has forgotten the camera... That would be Fluffy and Talia, with other words: All those who actually HAVE cameras. To put it bluntly: Uhmm... No pics at all today... 8o

Well, I hear Talia is just going upstairs to comment on this statement... But she has just drunk some Met, so she might be a bit groggy... :p

Well, I just wanted to say, that there was nobody to remind us to take the camera with us....

What is this "Met" stuff?

It sounds like some kind of alcoholic drink, but not one which I'm familiar with (not, mind you, that I am familiar with that many  :D  )

If I remember my medieval fantasy lore, Met is called "mead" in English. It's a sweet alcohol usually  made from honey (though whether by fermenting honey, or adding honey to some other alcoholic beverage, I can't remember).

I just got the Okay for my vacation next week. I was bothered that there would turn out to be some lecture with compulsory attendance that nobody had told us about (not that I'd have attended that; this would be fully worth the trouble), but there turned out to be none. So I'm definitely going next week and buying the train tickets now.

Oh, and don't worry I didn't tell you before that I wasn't sure I could come again - I don't like to make people nervous. :speechless

Hello guys and gals! Finally here we go with pictures from our Salzburg trip - thanks to Faugar's magnificent photo shooting skill we can offer you 45 new pictures:D  And we also have 2 pictures showing the master himself...

We're having lots of fun here with our latest arrivals, Dalá and Faugar, and are expecting Gean and Aran (again) tomorrow. Today we will watch the marriage trek again, so most likely you will have seen many of the pictures we can take there already in some variation. However, we still have various pictures from the tourament and other miscellaneous stuff, so you can expect some more...

But hey, how about some comments here, guys? - Faugar, our photographer, would like to hear some feedback;)

BTW, Insanity, this is a fantasy world creation site.  We write here.  We create art here.  We write music here. However, you've come during the official Santhmoot (many of us are attending a get-together in Europe) and consequently there aren't a lot of folks around.  If you are truly interested, try writing back in a couple of weeks, when everyone will be back.  And please, moderate your unnecessarily belligerent language. This is a family friendly site and some of our members are quite young.

Arti, unfortunately you're expecting me one day earlier than I can come. I knew quite ahead of time that if I came today from Aachen (Monday), I'd arrive at the earliest shortly before midnight; but it turns out I'll be leaving Tuesday morning (long before sunrise) from Duisburg, and arrive shortly before or at noon on Tuesday. I'll get the exact time later today, all right?;)  

Wish me luck for my Linear Algebra exam in five hours.:D

Wow!! Wow!!  What great pictures!!  Talia, I can see why you would think that meeting in real life is such a treat.  

Art, you not only attract fantastic artists, composers, and writers but beautiful people as well.  You could easily be a manager of a model agency.  I know of some pictures of all of the Santharian's that could easily be models in a magazine.  And I am not talking about a "Horror" magazine either before anyone starts in.

Now, I just cannot wait until I see pictures of Alysse, of course after she has been awake for an hour or so and her hair is neatly brushed, I read that thread about "Mortal Kombat" with anyone who takes pictures of her or any woman without first consultations.:rollin

Talia, you and your husband are just fantastic!!!  Thumbs up for the both of you.:thumbup

Oh- and Rayne, I live in Hollister, about 45 min from Saratoga.
So far, I count three Santharians in California- including Drogo.

Not only is there an abundance of Santharians, but California has so many microclimates! A four hour drive can take you from sunny coastline, through coastal forests, plainslands, and into chilly mountains! Dat's why I love it here. It's really inspirational.

This time we had Faugar with us who made a lot of pictures as well:D  - Sorry that I can't post that much right now, but more pictures will come and we're having a lot of fun I can assure you... - Looking forward to Thusday when we'll meet Bard Judith, Alysse and Thuja;)

We've just realized that Judy and Alysse will arrive on Friday and not on Thusday as we thought, so the Santhmoot Calendar was wrong in this respect. Gives us even lesser time to get to know them both, and we definitely have problems deciding when to place the Bardic Circle - and we won't have Dalá with us then. So yeah, unfortunately this can't be helped. So tomorrow we'll only await Thuja in the afternoon and Judy & Alysse on Friday.

I'll post more pictures now in chronological order... The first ones you see below are from Artemis riding and things happening at the farm with the other members at this time, then we continue with various pictures at Talia's house and pictures from our (second) Munich trip from the Treasury and then the so-called Residenz.

We have lots of more pictures also showing Santharians, but you know there is a censorship going on here (Dalá mainly allows to be shown in profile and Artemis is worried about her bum) - we are only allowed to post officially approved pictures, you know. So you miss some of the fun here, but you could have come as well, eh? - Maybe next time;)

In almost exactly twelve hours I will be boarding a plane in Toronto, Canada, to fly to Munich, Germany.  My bags are packed, my ticket and passport are on the dressing table, the camera is loaded with film and new batteries.  Gifts are tucked away under the short-sleeved shirts, and a tube of sunscreen shares a ziplock bag with the deodorant stick.  The artist's travel tote with various art supplies is on top of the carry-on bag, a couple of favourite CDs lurk along the side.  I have my favorite hat - and a new wallet with a few euros already in it!   Am I prepared?

For ten days away from home - yes.  For the opportunity to dive into a marvelously rich cultural environment (perhaps my only chance to visit Europe) and to appreciate it to its final, sacher-torte-scented drop - yes, as well as I may be, though I may succumb to Stendhal Syndrome before I even get there, saturated in Faugar's pictures!  For the chance to finally meet and hug and hear the voices of my fellow Dreamers and treasured friends... ah, there's the rub.  

"Oh," I wail to Bryan anxiously, "what if they're disappointed?  What if I don't make a good first impression?" To my still-slim-after-three-children-sister who will be stepping off the plane beside me, I don't dare sniffle that I suspect everyone is better-looking.  I'm sure I won't live up to my virtual persona, will make some terrible cultural gaffe, annoy the household by frying onions for breakfast, use the wrong German phrase when trying to order lunch, and leave wet towels on Talia's bathroom floor.    

Then I remember that, despite the last generation's suspicions and forebodings, I do not go to meet strangers, but friends.  

I can't wait.

Love you all, and....finally able to type this... see you soon!

Regards from the bard,
Judith

@Judy: I don't think that it's possible to disappoint anyone. Simply because it's just so great so see and talk to every - so far only online-familiar - Santharian you haven't been able to see and talk to for several years by now; at least that's what I can tell. Finally meeting all these different kind of people with Santharian background is just a wonderful experience I wouldn't want to miss, and I definitely haven't regretted anything;)  You know, if you find out that all these people are just people like you and me with all their own customs, interests, ways of handling things and making fun, of getting exited and tired and what not. - it shows you that these are living persons and no abstract online names. And this is the most important thing I guess:D

@Morcaanan: Well, the question is when and where we can make another Santhmoot. But in general all kind of Santharian members are allowed to attend Santhmoot, but that's all a major question of organisation how many people could live in a Santharian member's house/flat, whatever - and of course if people have the money to afford the trip. - We were extremely lucky here with Talia, who has the space, the time and all kinds of necessary resources (e.g. 2 cars), and I can tell you in advance that it will be extremely difficult to be able to organize a similar meeting in the future. But well, we'll see...

Wow looking at all of those pictures.  Is that an english saddle Artemis is riding?

Are those the Crown Jewels of Germany or what in the treasury room?

Also the group pictures are very nice.  I can see everyone. And the diversity, yet normalness, is normalness a word?  Anyway you can see the diversity and the similarities of all of you.  Kind of makes you really think that people all over the world, though they may have different customs, language, ect ect...are really the same over...Human!!

Speaking of Wren:

Though I have not seen her on the boards.  I hope she is ok, as well as any other Londoner's.  That attack upon the city and the U.K. gave me an eerie reminder of 9/11 and most, the Paris attacks.  Please all of you Santharians.  Take care of yourselves.

Take Care...talk to you soon.

Just to clarify and to make sure you have this info:

Judith and I will be arriving at the Munich Airport at 10:30 am.  Our ticket doesn't actually state the date, but since we leave Toronto, Canada at 8:20 pm Thursday (today for us) evening, I'm going to assume that's ten-thirty on Friday morning.  Our flight info is, again:  TS438 at MUC, 10:30.  

Looking forward to seeing you there!  Talia, honest, this is your last run to the airport!

Oh, by the way, since you don't have pictures of us - I'll be wearing a large, floppy, ORANGE hat!

Just a little note on Wren: She replied yesterday evening that she is all fine and had heard about it on the radio, so she didn't leave the house at all. Her sister however got the bus from Euston to Marble Arch just after the Kings Cross bomb, though if she had been on the same bus half an hour later - well...

So nothing to worry about here, guys;)   - Let's hope no friends or relatives of her were at the stations at this time.

Okeydokey... We're now moving out soon to fetch Bard Judith and Alysse to complete the Santharian meeting - stay tuned!!

Art!! You lucky lucky man.  To be surrounded and admired by all those pretty ladies.:b

So Imperious Art, which one do you choose to be your escort?  Or are you choosing them all? LOL

@Artemis- A western saddle is not that much different.  You still ride the horse with your thighs.  Of course I have never ridden in an english saddle.  It would seem to me that since it is a smaller saddle that you could use your thighs more effectively...maybe I am wrong.

@Judy and Alyeese- Nice seeing the both of you.  You can tell that your sisters.  You both have terrific smiles.

@Talia- The memories...Thanks for the memories...Thanks to you and your husband for opening up your hearts and home to the Santharians.  I cannot imagine how you are going to feel when all is done and gone.  But, until that time, have fun!!!:rollin

Capher - Aha! Over here, you are not taught to ride with your thighs! In fact, it took my riding instructress 4 months or so for her to teach me to stop gripping with my thighs. A lot comes from the lower leg and the heel... it is a different style of riding.

This is why I am so interested to ride a horse who knows the Western style of riding, I'm not sure how I would get on.

It sure did look like you were proposing.  And it seemed like she was actually thinking about accepting.  :)

Where did all the penguins come from?

@Artemis- If you only use your heel, how do you control the horse?  Through its reins and bit?  I would rather use my thighs.  P.S. How did it really feel with Gean at your feet?;)  LOL

@Talia, Alyeese- were you ladies singing at a piano?  Who was that dark haired man singing along with you.  As if we did not know? LOL

Looks like you all had fun.  Did Dala enjoy herself there?  She seemed to be having fun on the swing.

@Dala and Aran: big hugs from Landshut. It is/was a blast with you guys. I really can't imagine that I'll be leaving tomorrow morning, I'm having such a splendid time over here. Aran, good luck with the algorythm stuff. :thumbup

Yesterday we went to the Laudate Dominum and showed Judy and Alysse around the town. Thuja and I went up to the castle on top of the hill, we had a magnificent view on the town and the countryside surrounding us. Afterwards there was a big Santharian diner, with a complete menu, especially the Fizz (sp?) was praised by everyone. A Bardic Circle finished the day.
Today featured the middleage concert 'music in 1475' and the Knight Games. In between there was the marriage track. I'm sure Faugar and Arti will upload the pictures we made these days as well.

Not to mention all the discussions going on about the actual Santharian work. Make sure to stay tuned upcoming weeks because there's been a lot of brainstorming going on (and still is as I'm writing these words), I'm quite positive a few of the developers have their fingers itching to start from the notes we took and work them into complete compendium entries.

Capher - Well, it's a combination of correct use of reins and bit, and the lower leg. Applying pressure behind the girth with your heel or lower leg gives you the speed and or direction. But yeah, squeezing with the thighs is not considered correct!

Oh, and as lovely as it was having Gean propose to me, I sadly had to decline. It turns out he has a worrying love of having flowers threaded into his hair... teeheehee... ,).

Dala - Beat my record? Never! I shall not let you! I shall sleep forever, you can never win, Mwoahahaha!!!

Well, the day started of rainy, and though there was some rain at the Music of 1475 as you know, Aran, the day was pretty much ok later. A small shower during the wedding trek, but that was basically it. The tournament took place as planned and practically as it ended the rain started to fall... *hehe* So we were pretty lucky methinks. We didn't have much of the camp life this time though, because it was pretty muddy and rainy after the tournament, but we've had another nice dinner yesterday evening and some fruitful discussions later on;)

As pretty much everyone's already leaving today there's not much time for preparing and uploading further pictures now, but I'll get to that a bit later, don't worry. Judy and Alysse are accompanying me to Vienna for 2 days or so, so I'll be busy with doing some sightseeing with them tomorrow and you'll probably have to wait a bit more for further pictures.

Also, what did you discuss about - still Santhros, or something else?

Post by: Bard Judith on 12 July 2005, 02:38:00
Details on the meeting will be coming later.  Art's going to set up a passworded section in which we can begin creating and discussing some of the suggestions and ideas that were proposed, so as soon as that's done, we'll have an arena to thrash out/finetune in.

In brief, the main points were:

Apprenticeship Program - how to institute and support
Mentor System - a way to encourage and guide 'newbies'
Member's Area - a passworded section for 'private' discussions, e.g. apprenticeship issues and the "What's Going On?" thread
Board reorganization - deleting the Polls section (moved to main site), re-re-formating Resources, etc.

It was a very productive meeting, not to mention a lot of fun to work together.  I'll post full 'minutes' later!

Art has instituted the "Member's Moot' section - it is NOT passworded but rather allows access via a list.  We're only in the testing stage at the moment, which is why you won't see it appearing at the top of the Dev section of the forum, but once everyone's name is added, you will.  Non-members won't even know it exists, while you can simply click and post as in any other forum.

Our dear sage had also given me the go-ahead to post what we discussed; I shall clarify and let you all know that the above is not something that we as 'Santhmoot Council Members' have decided on without others' input.  Rather, those of you who couldn't attend or weren't there at the time are being asked for your ideas, comments, critiques, suggestions, etc. just as with an entry.  

You will see a list of FAQs go up - do you think they need additional questions or different questions? Say so!  We'll post a sheet of apprentice (newbie) guidelines - got some other ideas? Post and let us know what they are!

One of the reasons to create this new forum is so that we can test and refine the proposals above without confusing visitors and potential new members.  Änother is so that we can share personal information without feeling selfconscious or threatened.  When it becomes available, please do pitch your two san's worth into the pot - we'd love to hear from everyone!

I arrived safely.

It took some extra time, courtesy of the Deutsche Bahn and the Nederlandse Spoorwegen, combined with the fact that my bike had broken down, the public transport didn't go to my village at the late hour anymore, and that I therefore had to walk from the outher quarters of town to my village.

:hug  to everyone. I'm not sure if I can turn op regularly now that I arrived home, but I'm going to try my best. I have my Landshuter Hochzeit CD on while I'm writing this, my memory stone is somewhere nearby, not to mention all the other gifts I brought along with me.

:(  Artemis don't you dare and go away with diseases all over you, that might put you in a containment area when you arrive in Londen because you'd be considered a secret terrorist weapon. ;)  On a more serious note, get better young lady, you're too much fun to be around with :clap  (of course, that goes for all of ye!)

Talia, special mention for our hostess: :worship  :jawdrop  :clap  it can't be expressed in smilies, not sure if it can be done in words. It was simply incredible, marvelous. I'll treasure these times, it gave me a lot of energy.

However, I did have a rather productive afternoon working on the new Flying Race, who I shall give a name to one day, and also using our illustrious artist Faugar to draw some ideas. Sadly, it took him some time to understand, the first attempt looked remarkably like a cockroach-devil flying pig hybrid.

Teeheehee...

:hug   to everyone! And thanks for the get well soon messages, I too hope that I can get well soon and perhaps kiss my boyfriend by Friday...

... My priorities in life are so well adjusted. :D .

:D   :D   :D

Artemis>> You can still kiss the Greek boyfriend and spread the germs to him. We love germs!!!! And horses!!!!

Cockroach-devil flying pig hybrid?! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! :rollin  :rollin  :rollin  

If you ever read X-men, Archangel popped into my head when you were describing your flying race to us on the train to Salzburg (ah, has it been a week already??) but cockroach-devil flying pig hybrids sound attractive too...

I'm home as well, and miss you all already. I'd like to thank Talia and Art for making this all hapen again, and all of you for being there! I guess Artemis is on her way back home at the moment. Have a safe trip, and get well soon!

We did make a few pictures of the tournament, as well as both music events. All were certainly worth visiting.

And yes, the flying pig hybrid IS attractive! ;)

All gone now! Just came back from the airport. Artemis is feeling a little better. She had to open her luggage because of a necklace with long spikes which  she didn't wear at Santhmoot! :lol

Already now it feels like a dream for me - have to go down and wash the towels and bedclothes, that shows me, that there actual happened something !

(((HUGS))) Talia.  I knew it would be hard for you to say goodbye.  But, I know that as you look at the pictures that have been taken that memories will come flooding back.

Artemis= I hope that you feel well soon.

Art- you have Judy and Alyeese?   Hmmm.... I think your going to need a vacation after your vacation. LOL

To all the others, I am glad you all made it back home safe and sound.

News from Vienna: Judy, Alysse and I have finished our sight-seeing tour for today (St. Steffen's Church, Inner Town, Votive Church, Castle Schönbrunn, passing the Hofburg, Karl's Church, Opera House, Parliament, the Museum of Fine Art and Nature etc.) and brought Judy safe home, though her feet definitely need some rest. Tomorrow Alysse and Judy will visit the Museum of Fine Arts and perhaps another place, while I will already go to work before I accompany them back to the railway station, so that they can leave for Landshut again where they'll stay another night with Talia:)  - So as you can see, Talia, it's still not over...

BTW: I noticed that I forgot my house shoes in Landshut - should be at the place where we changed shoes. Well, maybe you find a use for them;)

Judy and Alysse are now preparing dinner - mmmmhhh... it smells great! And they sing all the time time while preparing, so I have a concert here as well:D  - Woooohoooo!

Aran, found your cushion .

Let's see, what else I will find!

Well, yes, Alysse and Judy will come back for two nights, but somehow Artemis leave was the end of Santhmoot for me, there are two days without Santhfriends!

Now we can start planning the next Santhmoot! In California! (Everyone in Europe and Asia should start saving up now!)

It will be something to remember always (of course the many gifts will help to keep it fresh in the mind :lol  )

Okeydokey, Judy and Alysse are by now sitting in the train to Landshut, so Santhmoot is now officially over for me as well. Hope they'll arrive safely - should be there at 23:30, Talia!

And yup, I guess the umbrella is mine - feel free to keep it or sell it at exorbitant prices to Santharian fans... :lol

Will see to prepare some more pictures soon as I'm a bit behind with that... - But now that I'm back again home without any Santharian members in sight I should be able to get back to the regular update and commenting pace;)  - Well, after a night or two with good sleep - as I'm still pretty exhausted and tired from all teh sight-seeing tours, events etc.

Good to hear, Alysse! :D  - Have a nice day with Talia!

I promise to put up some more pictures this evening - I still had to unpack, transfer files back to my main computer, finish burning the photos on DVD, make a new resizing script and whatnot yesterday and then was too tired for another uploading round. But more pictures will come, don't worry. Hope I don't get pictures up where shoulders are slumped, the focus is on certain body parts or whatever - but I'll try to add some fun images as well if you don't mind, as they add some flavour. If there's a major problem with a new picture I put up, please let me know, though;)

it would be a good idea to post those pictures in the private forum first, then we can agree on them there, and will move the "non offensive ones" here. What do you think?
btw, I'll make some crops from the tournament and music anno 1475 pictures if you like, and will post them here.

Ok, yeah, guess posting them first in the "restricted" area is a good idea, Faugar - this is what the area is there for:)  

And go ahead with some crops, yup - I'll basically put up selected shots first of stuff we have from Talia's and Aran's cameras which turned out very well.

Good to hear all the travelling continues to work according to plan, I hope you enjoyed your stay in Europe so far, Alysse and Judith.

I'm happy to announce that my pictures will be developed by saturday, if I can get them before the concert I have to give, I'll make I'll upload them as soon as I arrive home in the evening, otherwise I'll post them sunday somewhere.

@Capher and others, it's nice to hear how people enjoy our tales, though they couldn't be there. Thanks for the support!

The following pictures had to be cropped due to the fact that there were various people from the audience visible, so nothing censored, really... :lol

These pictures are from the last events provided by Faugar - Music around 1475 and the Tournament pictures. No Santharians visible here, but a few more images with Santharians will come up as soon as they are approved by everyone.

Ok, here are more officially approved pictures then for all those who haven't seen them on the Moot Forum yet:

As mentioned on the main Santhmoot thread - here are a bunch of further pictures, mixed randomly (mainly from Talia's and Aran's camera).

Some explanations for those who weren't there:

- No, Gean didn't propose to Artemis - it just looks that way... :lol  
- No, I haven't become father all of a sudden... ;)  
- Contained in this picture set you also see Dalá leaving for Singapore again... *sniff*
- And finally you also see the deck of cards here Judy made as a gift to me. It was made out of existing pictures on the site (see entry "Game of Four Houses") and is not intended to be reproduced, sold etc., which wouldn't be possible anyway due to the fact that the copyrights for each picture belong to the artists.

Hope you enjoy!

It's too bad the my picture of Faugar cutting peppers was not sharp (not included here) and some of the Sturmwind family pictures at the Santharian Diner were far too dark. But there's other good stuff as well, my personal favourite is the 'gathering clouds above Santharian photographer' :devilish
