I hear Sir Wolf is very authentic when it comes to "smelling medieval"  :)

i have to say i love the age of black powder now the most. we have pants hahaha. sleeping in a fox hole or in a trench. the smell of powder and gas in your nose. freezing or sweating to death in wools... I'm a loon i think sometimes.

Well, we already knew that. ;)

Yet another reason why we often elect to use goats to serve as his proxy!  ;)

Ouch :)

Would be great to go as a group to DoK - looking for an excuse to break out our tent again, but worried if we don't have 100% period stuff, would not be accepted.  Is having modern items (i.e., camp cots) covered/out of sight acceptable?

Among the greatest evils we face are those which lie within.

Yep, hide it in your vehicle during "open" hours, or leave your tent closed, or leave it hidden. We've got a modern ice chest with modern drinks. I built a period style chest around the ice chest to conceal it. :)

Would that be a goat in Wolf's clothing...? :o
Per pale azure and argent, an eagle displayed per pale argent and sable, armed and langued or.

So a Norman, a Saxon, and a Viking walk into England....

That Stuff Is So Awesome.  The Tent is Matching, just look At that Helm! Is that a Jack russel in the back?

I don't Think wolf would notice. I mean, Soap And Water can get rid of a Goats Bad Hygiene. But Wolfs clothes Probably Savor The Flavor.

Ah, well if keeping modern fare out of sight is OK, we may well be able to make that work.  BTW, what are the dates for DoK this year and who's committed to attend so far?

Thanks, Sir Nate - indeed, that is our faithful war hound, Dixie.  I'm sure she would also enjoy DoK if canines be welcome :)

Perhaps She could be disguised As in armor If you ever have to watch her on the same day you go do DoK.
They may allow it.

Gareyth, forgot to say, that is an awesome tent / color combo!

The date for this year will probably be the second week of October again. The first two years, it was the weekend before Labor Day; I haven't seen any confirmation, just going off past dates.

Either I missed that sticky or forgot about it; good to have date confirmation. Hopefully this year will align properly with work again, and I can go!
