*ATWW is one of my favorite SCA camping events, with many different types of activities, as well as a splendid location near Gold Beach on the southern Oregon coast. My favorite parts of the shindig are the various classes available, visiting my friends at the "cooks playdate" encampment (where enthusiasts of medieval cookery gather to experiment in trying new recipes and techniques) and the amazing views of the night sky, as the site is at the end of the road in a valley surrounded by hills and trees, but almost no houses. This means that the night sky is intensely visible, and one man camped near us brought his large 13"? telescope and set it up; I saw the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter for the first time, and what a special treat that was!!
