Hubby and I for YEARS have done rendezvous and some Living History events. It is a fun hobby, and your kids come out knowing enough history that they drive their teachers nutz. :o)

There are SOME folks who really want to know how folks lived "back then "(insert historical date that they are interested in). There are trekers...here in the USA, they are the folks who go out in the woods for the weekend or even a week, with nothing on their backs but what can be historically (first person) documented (other than a water filter and a turned off cell phone for emergencies, at the bottom of their handsewn linen ruck sacks). Look up John Curry on Google.

Wow, thanks for explaining that. I had never seen anything like this! Blonde women with blonde babies in cradleboards and such. I was like, what's going on here? LOL

I did like their instructions on moccasins for cold weather. I suppose if you are actually in the weather, you can also modify and work with what does work and what doesn't work.

Well, I had never seen anything like this. I have been to a Rendezvous before along the Mississippi river and they are generally French vs. British with a few Americans tossed in...a weekend tops. Sometimes they have NDNs, but not very many...at least in what I saw. If someone was dressed like an NDN, the person really looked to be Native and I figured they got some Natives to come in and do that.

Wow, wearing all that wool in the heat must be brutal.

But did you see--I'm not talking the new people--but the people who are established in the group, those women are physically fit! I mean, they have been out there working the work instead of talking the talk. It's gotten them in shape.

I did not know that that is what they were doing. Thanks for explaining. It just looked crazy to me, like they were playing around.

When I go on vacation, I want an air conditioned hotel room and a casino nearby. LOL
