Copic Boot Camp 2013 with Jenn Dove
The hotel is super nice. The retreat was in the same place in 2011 so I knew it was nice. Jenn made sure that I had a room next to her, so she could make sure I was okay. First I started off with a handicap room across from her, but after I got back to the room after the first night my room REEKED of pot smoke. I called down and they moved me to another room; the hotel gals smelled it when they delivered the keys. I ended up with an elite room, which was pretty cool. I even had a couch and a desk, which I might have used if I were able to do more than sleep and shower. It was pretty nice to have a room all to myself for a few days, and I got to have the room absolutely frigid. It's nice to have air conditioning. I left Sirius' plastic bone in the hotel room on accident though. :(
I did my best to combine both books I got from the retreats, and I'll work on the images again to get them complete for future reference. Anyway, I had a lot of fun, and it was SOOOOO good to get away from Big Bear for... well, it's always good to get away from Big Bear for as long as possible. I'm hoping if I start saving now I can make it to next year's retreat. It's nice to get to hang out with people that like doing what you like to do and there was new stuff to learn which is good. You should never stop learning!
