Well, this weekend was the third winter journey I've taken to attend the semi-annual convocation of the Wyoming College of the Societas Rosicruciana In Civitatibus Foederatis. After the prerequisite, severe winter road conditions, my traveling companions and I arrived in Riverton, WY, early Saturday evening. Along with a close friend and Frater, I went to the Masonic Lodge that night and received the Grades of the Second Order (V°, VI°, and VII°) or also known as the Teaching Grades. Words cannot even describe it all and the experience of going through those three grades.
Sunday morning, Wyoming College conferred the Grades of the First Order (I° to IV°) on four candidates, two of them from Idaho; one of whom is the current Worshipful Master of my home Lodge. The hospitality of the Wyoming Fratres was great, as always. My traveling companions and I attempted to travel back to Idaho, but our van broke down so we are spending another night and will attempt again in the morning. Now it is time for some Scotch before going to bed.
