In May of 1988 Carrie came out to Massachusetts for our first actual face to face visit. One of the things I set up was for her to get to participate in an SCA type event held on Lyle Gray's family's farm. Trees were just starting to bud, but the grass was already gung-ho green.
No, Carrie didn't run all the way from Arizona, she flew most of it. She ended running because her arms were tired.
