long time readers of this blog will know that my husband and I go every year to do medieval re-enactment for 11 days in early March.
Well it’s that time of year again.
time to pack up all the stuff and drive to rural Mississippi to join 4,000 of our closest friends. this year we get to add something entirely new to the mix: the adventure of taking our six month old baby girl to her first camping event.
Now for those of you you are picturing a backpacking type trip….um…get that image right out of your heads.
The stuff we pack takes up an entire 24 foot long passenger van from floor to ceiling, plus a 12 foot long trailer hitched to the back. This is camping in comfort. Our tent has a 17 x 17 foot “footprint” the dining room for our 27 person encampment is 20 x 20 and the kitchen is another 19 x 24.
Here are a few shots from last year
We mostly likely will not have any internet access all week, but be assured that I will post photos and stories the minute I get back to civilization.
alright, that’s a lie. I’ll post the photos AFTER a nice hot bath. Baths being the one piece of civilization I miss the most when I am camping. Showers just are NOT the same.
