David in MN:
I agree though I travel in a different circle. I'm a guy who did SCA (before I had a kid) and showed up fully done up as a crusader. Like I made all my maille and all. There used to be a lady round here named after a tree who did that too.

I agree that historical societies are awesome. You learn skills and methods long lost. Such a powerful tool in an era where bread comes from a factory.

Sounds very interesting... Would love to read any articles you have on these treks...

Living history hobby is great prepping source. I've been in this community for over 20 years.
