Vertigo Photo Array

I don't often get to go to an SCA event two weekends in a row, but recently I did. The weekend after Calontir's Crown Tournament I went to Vertigo.

Vertigo is a yearly Shire of Lost Moor weekend camping event offering classes, many relating to fiber. It got its name because a person with vertigo has the symptoms of spinning and weaving sometimes leading to dying. Fiber artists do a lot of spinning, weaving and dying, but with yarn.

I'm not a fiber goob, but I like the event. I took pictures instead of fiber classes.

I wish I'd been that close for Dov's.

After court, the Shire of Lost Moor provided a feast, partly cooked by HL Tola. As usual, I returned home. But first I had to get stuck on a hill in raining wet grass. One nice gentle tried to help push me out, but it didn't work. Luckily the next car's owner came to retrieve it allowing me to back up and go around another car. That worked.

From set-up, archery, armored combat, cut and thrust fighting, meals, arts and sciences classes to site clean up and equipment storage Lost Moor gave everyone a grand, fun, pageant filled time.
