Encamped

  There is rarely anything cooler, in my opinion, than experiencing history by living it.

Whether you are the sort who prefers historical Wars and Battles, or larger time periods, such as the Regency, or Middle Ages, or even if you have just been to one of the more hokey Renn fests, you have perhaps experienced the excitement that comes from seeing history firsthand.

Being able to smell the sharp smoke from muskets, watch a craftsman shape antler into buttons, and taste rugged campfire cooking all give one a deeper appreciation for the people who came before us, and the skills they employed.

In an age when information is available with a flurry of keystrokes, and just about anything can be delivered to one’s door, I think it’s important to take a step back in time, and reevaluate what’s really important.
