Boy, that was a long ride. 1000 kilometers later we arrived this night. It was a great event. The restoration of the ruins produced a small wooden building, which perfectly was contributing to the historic atmosphere. The good things with the ruin walls is: they keep everything modern out of sight. The visitors were, as already known from Puchberg very interested and came in masses. It is nice to seem that this kind of event is successful and earns also some money for further restoration & conservation. Even more amazing was how people expressed their appreciation. There was no entrance fee for the grounds, but a donation of any amount was appreciated. There were people that donated 2 Euros when they came in, and when the leyt 3 hours later they put in another 10 Euros. I think there couldn’t be a better compliment for our work.

For those curious: Sure I did finish my pennon. Thanks for the Austrian winds and sun I did this picture.

finished pennon

As always: On every event you break something. This time my new sword scabbard broke. Medieval scabbards were lined with fur. But it seems that one fur went loose and now is stuck near the lower end, so my sword is currently stuck. Ill have to open the leather cover and somehow the wooden parts to reattach it.

And one word to all truckers out there:
Yes, I know that construction lanes are always quite narrow, but if I want to over take, please move from the mid of both lanes back to the right lane and let me pass. Thank you!
