Our limitation on going usually depends on our kids.
As they get older there are more and more demands of time.
Our high school offers a summer session in June to allow students to knock out electives and basic core classes.
If there is a class they can get out of way to open up another option in the regular year they take it.
There is also softball and summer sports conditioning.
Then comes the summer jobs
So it simply boils down to if there is enough available time to make the trip worthwhile.
This past year I had to drive back to Carthage 3 different times for other commitments.

Now that is an interesting idea...If we send out invitations to our neighboring kingdoms billing it as something like " To enter negotiations with, and test the metal of, our potential Allies" our Neighbors might be more likely to represent themselves as a kingdom instead of just visiting individuals' And we would still maintain the "Friendly War'" theme we have established. That could have a significant impact on the size of the war, and if we set aside encampment areas for different kingdoms even more so I would think, all of a sudden kingdoms would be doing a muster and counting heads to see how much space to ask for.

If you can get the Crown or Heirs, you've got something.Way back when, Three Rivers' baronial birthday bash was a

the point when the king (William/Humpk) wanted to negotiate
which side we'd fight on at Pennsic, and invited the Crown
of [I forget which kingdom) to visit for a talk. The Crown
showed up with (near as I, a newby, could tell) the
entire Court - retainers, heralds, a seneschal or two,
local (well, to him) barons and baronesses, the Heirs,
the whole nine yards. It was, essentiallly, a State Visit.
The autocrat found herself in charge of an event that had
suddenly doubled in size, including the feast. How she
pulled it off I do not know, but the visiting Crown did
decide to fight with Calontir.
