    Advantages of Prepping With an 18th Century Living History Group.

    · Participating in living history activities is fun & educational.

    · Children love living history activities & are able to share the experience with their parents.

    · Children who participate in Historical Trekking become used to carrying their own equipment & getting ready for the trek. IF a shtf situation should arise, the child knows what to do to get ready to leave, no fuss & no worries.

    · As a group member you can train with the local militia which is completely legal & does not attract unwanted attention.

    · You can learn many primitive living & survival skills including flint, steel & tinderbox fire lighting.

    · You can use a variety of period items & learn how to make your own clothing & equipment.

    · You can learn muzzle-loading, archery, sword fighting & tomahawk throwing.

    · You can participate in historical treks & get to actually use your equipment. In this way you are able to choose the right equipment to suit your needs & you will know that it all works.

    · You will learn to set up an oilcloth shelter & construct other primitive shelters.

    · Lone wolves can still take advantage of group membership either by learning from the group instructors, or by participating on the group’s internet forum.

    They are usually a good bunch of people, willing to help people wanting to get into living history. My blood brother's son Running Deer lives in England & used to attend Rendezvous. I have the photographs of the various events there.

    HELLO OL HOSS, im a SKINNER/ MTMAN. I have my own primitive camp up onthe edge of my pasture. LOOKING forward to the first snow i will have my lodge TIPI and all my gear ready I really look forward to my fall camp. It takes me away from this place and time and gives me the peace i need to recharge my sprit. Im an old guy and if i passed over while in my camp that would be a great way to go.
