One way to maybe make the pickings less slim is to reach across pantheon lines to others who may not worship the exact same gods, but with whom you share the basic polytheist worldview. After all, one of the original reasons this community started was because hard polytheists have more in common with one another in terms of practice and perspective than with those who call on the same Deities by name, but who have a more Wiccan or archetypal/psychological approach.
After all, one of the reasons that the broader Wiccan community has such strength is that they are often happy to meet and circle together even though they call the Lord and Lady by different names. They build on their commonality to create stronger community.
Thank you guys for participating by the way! It's great to see the first shoot of life here.

I happen to be from the Baltimore/Towson area and given the bus system and enough time and warning (particularly to get money saved up), I can meet up with people in DC. I can't drive at the moment (no license or car), but hopefully when I can, I'll be more accessible for meet-ups. I'm Norse-based, but I don't mind meeting with other polytheist types at all.
I used to live in Arbutus, I'm somewhat familiar with the north side of Town. I wouldn't mind even having a forum or email buddy to ask Northern Path questions to. I have an intense curiosity in that General direction.
