Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat Registration OPEN!
(Please cross post to interested groups)
Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat
June 25-30, 2008</b>
Northern Maryland

Odyssey Events is pleased to announce that Leather Retreat, which for the
last ten years has been produced by Community Ties is joining the Odyssey
Events family. The first Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat will be June 25-30,
2008 in Northern Maryland. "The response to Dark Odyssey has been
overwhelming and the community it has created is unlike any other in the
country. It just makes sense to bring all three events - Leather Retreat,
Summer Camp, and Winter Fire - under one roof," says Greg, one of the
co-producers. Co-producer Karri adds, "Each of these events has its own
focus and flavor, so that between them, there is something for everyone."

The biggest change will be the addition of Dark Odyssey's unique programming
and special events to Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat. "Many attendees have
asked us for some of their favorite Dark Odyssey elements, like Sex-O-Rama,
to be a part of Leather Retreat. Not only are we happy to oblige, we plan to
bring even more sex to Leather Retreat - if that's possible!" says Tristan.

Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat will continue Leather Retreat's tradition as
the best kink and sex camp event on the East Coast. "Whereas the focus of
Summer Camp is definitely on education, the focus of Leather Retreat has
always been on play, and that won't change," says Lori. "We want to create
a sex-positive environment with top-notch play spaces, creative amenities,
and inspiring events so that people can have a truly immersive experience.
Our goal is to build a magical place where people can live out their wildest
fantasies and dreams," remarked Colten.

Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat released its list of confirmed presenters last
month, which includes Lolita Wolf, Rita Seagrave, Sarah Sloane, Jim &
Jerith, Suzanne SxySadist, Lochai & Janice, and Carrie and Luna, 2008
International Pony and Trainer; the producers plan to announce several
additions to the line up shortly. In addition to favorite events like the
Pamporium, Kidnappings, and the State Fair, Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat
will unveil several new special events as well.

Online registration for Dark Odyssey: Leather Retreat is now open at
http://darkodyssey.com. For more information please write

Current Mood: campy

Leather Retreat-Registrations available
I am cross-posting this far and wide, please feel free to do so as well.

Due to an unexpected death in the family, a good friend of mine is unable to
attend Leather Retreat, which is being held this coming weekend.  She has
two tickets for Friday through Monday (though you could add additional days
if you wanted to).  These tickets were purchased at the early registration
rate of $375 each ($750 for both).  These tickets currently cost $450 each.

It is too late for her to get a refund.  If you were waiting until the last
minute, and would like to save some significant dough on tickets, here is
your chance!  These tickets can be transferred to you at the early
registration price that was paid for them.

Leather Retreat is the vacation of a lifetime, it is a fabulous event! 
For more information on the event, go to

If you are interested in the tickets, please email rivermystique@gmail.com.

Still Thinking about Camp
Leather Retreat is still on my mind. It took me a long time to recover this year and I wasn't sure why. Now I'm thinking it could be because I didn't want it to end.

On Wednesday I was thinking ... Today is only Wednesday and the party doesn't end until Monday! And then suddenly, it was Monday and I was just wasn't ready to go...

Since then I've had a bunch of dreams about camp and I keeping thinking about people I met and played with and it's safe to say that not a day goes by when I don't think about camp.

Last week I dreamt Aunt Nana and I entered the Golf Cart Races. And we were a last minute entry. Our Golf Cart looked like a real hot rod and when we got in it to drive to the starting line, we agreed that it only 'looked' like a hot rod. It still ran like a Golf Cart. I don't recall actually running in the race and have no idea how that dream ended.

A few nights ago I dreamt that I was having wild, crazy, unnaturally hot sex in a grassy area near or on a picnic table. I remember thinking at the time that it was some of the best sex I've ever had. And I clearly remember who it was with. But I don't recall having that earth shattering orgasm. I guess I woke up too soon.

Today I was looking for some supplies I need to take to Thunder and going thru the Toy Bag stuff from the LR Fair and found my personal floggers in a bin and very unhappy. I remember when I put them there though ... It was after I had used them and at the time, I thought they'd travel better there than back in my toy bag. I was wrong. But it brought back nice memories of camp :)

As I started to pack my fetish ware for the next show, I first had to unpack it from Leather Retreat. Every day I'm reminded of camp and every day I wish I were still there. I was once reminded that if LR lasted longer than the week we're there, it wouldn't be as special and I agree with that. But I wouldn't mind trying it for an extra week or two.
