I'm just outside of Omaha. Anyone else around here? Or even in the area...Kansas City, Des Moines....?

Hi Moon Mamma. Why don't you come visit Hawk and Danu and the rest of us coming from other areas at the 4th of July bash. It is at their bar in Ellis, KS? We would love to see as many faces as we can. BTY I will be moving there in about a year give or take and Blue Wolfe will be in June.

I just might be able to do that! But is it a family thing or adults?
I'll have to see exactly where Ellis is.

It is a family affair Moon Momma. I am bringing my 5 year old there is a restaurant as part of it so kid safe. Ellis is Northern Ks, Closest bigger town is Hays.

Right down Hwy 75, just on the other side of Plattsmouth.

I checked on MapQuest, its about a 6 hour drive. That's do-able, depending on my finances at the time. Keep me posted!

That's too funny. We're moving from Plattsmouth over the next two months to Belleview (lived here in Plattsmouth over the last 4 years) and we cross paths here of all places.

So then you probably know where Murray is....?
That's where I am. :)
I actually lived on 13th and Martha in South Omaha (by Sokol Hall) and just moved out into the Boonies about 6 months ago.

We used to live on 25th and F in South O!

You're about 6 miles down. :) Turn at the KFC/Taco Bell on 75 and your a mile from our apartment complex. Too funny. I always say Belleview because no one wants to claim to be from Plattsmouth...with good reason. ;)

I know, I almost have to say Plattsmouth because no one ever knows where Murray is, plus I don't always like giving out the name of the town since its kinda small. But, you're right, who wants to admit they're from Plattsmouth? ;)
I'm always right there by that KFC/Taco Bell...grocery shopping, renting movies...last night I even made a run to DQ for a Blizzard!

Hello Nebraska neighbors. :) I wish I could come up there in June for Ren Faire at Iowa Western College just north of Omaha. **sigh** Maybe you'd be interested in attending Heartland Pagan Fest in May?

Edited to add: that's May 27-31 at Camp Gaia a little ways northwest of Kansas City, or due north of Lawrence, near McClouth Kansas.

I went to the Ren Faire last year at IWCC, and the year before that. They keep saying "this is the last year!" but luckily it hasn't been!
I'll have to check and see if I could make it to the Heartland Pagan Fest. I bet its a lot of fun!

Hey everyone :colorful:
I'm from NW Iowa, about 4 hours from Omaha. Maybe you've heard of Okoboji Iowa (the Iowa great lakes)- prob not- but we do get a lot of Nebraska/Omaha campers up here (I work for the DNR at the campgrounds in the summer)
My little town is called Harris, has about 200 people, and is about 20 miles west of Okoboji, and even local Iowans haven't heard of it! I go to school in Storm Lake, IA which is a little bit closer to Omaha- but still not a big city (alas, Iowa :S)
If anyone goes to Okoboji in the summer or would like to, we could have a meet up there at one of the three state parks. I could possibly reserve some campsites depending on the dates (the parks don't allow you to reserve- but I have connections! ;))
PM me if anyone is interested-- it's a beautiful area, despite all the tourists... there are plenty of nature areas that they aren't aware of!

I've heard of Okoboji and Storm Lake. Isn't Buena Vista College in Storm Lake?
A campout sounds like a lot of fun! We could try to put one together.

Hey, I'm also in Kansas. I haven't been to the Heartland pagan fest but I recommend the Gaia Goddess Gathering in Sept. at Camp Gaea. In fact I recommend visiting Camp Gaea period...it's gorgeous private pagan property. :)
Blessed be and Namaste!

Yep, I go to Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. I'm surprised that you two (Mistress and Moon Mamma) have heard of the area.... it's a nice university, but small.
Mistress, we go to Sioux Falls all the time- great shopping (the empire mall) and the falls are beautiful-- that's where my fiance proposed to me :D
We always spend hours in the Barnes and Nobles there, also.
That's cool that we are all relatively close to each other (Daytrip!)

Cool! One of my ex-boyfriends who is still a good friend of mine lives in Kearney. He works at some youth detention center out there.

(Can I bump up an old thread without ruining anybody's day? Guess I'll find out.)

I'm in Kansas City, KS. (Actually Olathe, a suburb of KC.) I lived in Pella, IA for a little bit too; we moved back to Kansas years ago, but still head up to Iowa a lot to visit my husband's relatives.

Greetings one and all, I can't express how happy I am to find this post! I currently live in the Northern Part of Kansas City, MO (less than 15 miles form KCI Airport). And I'm CONSTANTLY looking for other pagans around this area, just too few of us around sometimes!

Brightest Blessings,
Wulf Stormhand
