    Boarfest 2010: Northeast Primal Gathering

    Primal Fuel
    Boarfest Northeast Primal Gathering
    Friday August 6th - Sunday August 8th

    Many of you already know about this, and most people who are coming have at least said so. I figured I better get a thread going so we can discuss what's happening, when, how, etc.

    So the big event is obviously the boar roast. We'll be doing that Saturday night, which means getting up pre-dawn to start the roasting.

    Some of the other things we'll get to do include:
    Foraging
    Playing with primative weapons
    Playing with fire
    Primal games/exercise
    Picking crawfish

    This is an unorganized event, in that whatever you want to do, bring it! Bring frizbees, kettlebells, yard toys... anything, everything. If you want to wander through the woods, go for it. We'll probably spend some time hiking, or picking crawfish. Maybe a game of Chase, or whatever else comes to mind.

    For anyone wanting fresh produce, the Amish have a very large greenhouse across the creek. Sunday morning there is a nice little flea market a few miles down the road.

    We'll be providing:
    Boar feast Saturday night
    Amish eggs throughout the weekend
    Venison for Friday night's dinner

    I will also donate some of my home-crafts, like pickled eggs, and kombucha. Anything you want beyond that, you can bring with you or pick up at the greenhouse.

    THIS JUST IN:
    Our butcher has informed us that he has unclaimed venison (as breakfast and Italian sausage.) He cannot, and we cannot legally sell venison in NY state. All the butcher asks is that you pay his processing fee ($1.50/lb) and you can have sausage to take home with you.

    Also available to take home:
    Amish eggs- $1.50/doz
    Raw goat milk- $4.50/gal


    What to bring? Well, you'll probably want a tent and your clothes. We'll provide portable bathrooms, but no showers. There IS a pond and a creek nearby. Please use biodegradable soaps. You also might want a lawn chair. I can't guarantee you won't be sitting in a mudpuddle- lol

    Bring anything you'd like to cook with. I will have some pans and utensils on hand, and we should have plenty of fire/grills. We'll also have a few spare tents for folks who don't have their own. (Thanks Greg!)


    Ok, so the cost:
    $25/person
    $40/couple
    Kids welcome free.
    Please NO pets.

    This will go towards:
    1) The boar
    2) The eggs, meat and other eats provided
    3) Bathroom facilities
    4) Renting roasting and fire equipment

    Payment can be sent to me at:
    Deanna Eberlin
    PO Box 548
    Painted Post, NY 14870

    or to Paypal (dianarenata@live.com)

    Please RSVP (and postmark payment) by July 1st so we can order the boar. Remember, they have to trap it first, then process it. Please include your username here so I know who's who, pretty please.

    Also, this is strictly a drug-free event. Alcohol will be allowed, but I will not disrespect my family with drug use on their property. I'm sure we don't have to worry about it, but I wanted to be clear.

    This is a rain or shine event. Be prepared!

    Have I forgotten anything? E-mail me with any questions you may have.

    This sounds like a ton of fun but it's sandwiched in between two other fun things I'm doing. Anyone interested in a carpool / rental share from NYC (Queens / Manhattan)?

    I know we have a few folks coming up from that area. I believe Greg offered up a rideshare.
