Feeling sore and exhausted after the Timeline, but we had a great time. We had a few hundred visitors, and even if the weekend was not that large, we had a lot of fun. Micel Folcland was set up at one end of the line, and we had a good stream of interested visitors. Kevin Young set up a Mexican War camp next to us on Saturday; Carol and Amy did some spinning on Saturday; there was a member of Fraser's who dressed in medieval drag; Michael Stevens set up a "Weapons thru the Ages" display, and his wife Diana moved into the cabin. The 78th, Fraser's company (F&I) showed up in force (Michael is commander). More on Saturday than on Sunday. We spent a lot of time walking over to the porch of the cabin--we had limited shade--and talking, and Friday & Saturday nights, we hung out on the porch just gabbing and having a great time.

If you missed it, shame on you. We had folk visiting from around the state, and we met a lot of great people both reenactors and turons! We have a commitment to to do it again, so we hope a better turnout. Forest Glen is only about 90 minutes from Indianapolis, 2-1/2 hours from Chicago and 45 minutes from Champaign.

I especially want to thank babs3406, seamstrix and julifolo for filling out the Regia camp. We had a blast. Babette's 6-month-old daughter, Sylvie, was the belle of the camp; Babette never wanted for folk willing to hold Sylvie while she had to do something else. This ran across all eras :)

Micel Folcland might have also gained a few new members since several reenactors, thinking they were going to see a Scadian effort, were very impressed by the MF efforts. there appears to be a big interest in medieval reenacting by folks who stay away from it in the States because the SCA is such a 700-pound gorilla!

You can see a few photos of the good times at http://www.flickr.com/photos/folo/sets/72157600159919383/. It was a beautiful, sunny weekend, and Forest Glen is always beautiful!

It's probably Flickr's new SafeSearch option :( I've been fighting with it since they instituted it. Theoretically--and very theoretically--you can click on the photo and bypass your SafeSearch options (and they by default are the most stringent). I'll also check to see if I can blanket change SafeSearch o[ptioons on a bunch of photos.

Thanks for pointing this out!

Well, I was unable to do anything, so it had to be something you poked :)

I don't know about you, but having someone who told what I shouldn't see was put behind when I moved out of my mama's house...

"Anyway, I find it hilarious that I did see the photos of your model shot "bare-breasted", a woman holding her own bosoms! But not scary, scarring living history photos. Obviously, flickr knows where to draw the line in the sand..."

A Brit friend found that he couldn't see his own pictures. Most were of English chapels with exhaustive notes...

"would have loved more shots of the geteld like tent thingy"

I think I have more shots of getalds in http://www.flickr.com/photos/folo/sets/72057594125869235/, and there are some in http://www.flickr.com/groups/regia_anglorum_in_north_america/ as well.

"Also, the shade-fly, just a square of fabric and a few poles and rope, do you know if there is firm evidence of it being that simple?"

It is a style that I first ran into in 18th-century reenacting, and there is sufficient provenance for it in that period. I started looking further back, and I found similar structures in landsknecht camps, then my wife came up with a picture that looked remarkably similar in the Utrecht psalter. Firm? Well, the pictures are certainly open to interpretation, but the interpretations are viable and useful and are likely enough for me. I don't expect to find any archaeological evidence of their existence; they are too transitory. The poles were apparently tree limbs, and the roofs were of various substances. They probably weren't moved, just reconstructed as needed. But nothing about them are illogical, and they are generally accepted in more strenuous living history. But whether they are truly accurate, I think, probably depens on your definition of accuracy. I do believe that their simplicity is a factor in favor of them being historicl accurate; I've often seen that our forefathers didn't do more work than they had to!
