Every year in late September or early October, I try to make my way to a Chesapeake Annual Gathering of Men in the Wshington, DC area. Prior to 2009 we met at the Buffalo Gap Camp in Capon Bridge, West Virginia. In 2009 we gathered at the Ramblwood Resort in Darlington, Maryland. There I seek to renew and revitalize myself, while I strengthen my connections to people very important in my life.
I designed and am Webmaster of the Gathering of Men Web site.
