Camping gear, warm clothing,
camping chairs, etc - be prepared for all types of weather! If you have a trailer thatís fine, there is a place for them
too, but not within the group campsite.
Bring a flashlight - it's as dark as the inside
of a cow at night around here... but you won't believe the stars!
You may want to bring a warm blanket for the talking
circles - despite the fire, the temperature can drop late in the
evening, and it is nice to bundle up.
Women, please bring and wear your long skirts!
If you are planning on doing a sweat, bring along appropriate
clothing for sitting on the ground: shorts and t-shirt for men, skirts
for women - and spare towels! If you are worried about the heat in the
lodge, bring an additional small hand-towel that can be dipped in water
to help you breathe. You may also want to bring a small water bottle for
after the ceremony.
We ask all those who come to these Gatherings to bring food to be shared with
everyone. We are providing one hot entree per day, and would appreciate
your help with items for a cold buffet that will be available all day. However, please remember that we have no way to keep
perishable foods cold, so plan accordingly. Dairy products, meats and
seafood are all risky if not properly handled, and we do not want a
Gathering to be remembered for food poisoning!
Also, donít forget the Giveaway, bring a little something that you may have made and put it on our blanket, and at the end of the Gathering, all can pick up a gift from the blanket and go home with a little
something to remember Keji by!
