- We are also in the world of having a new reenactor in our family, so
have been looking in to dress etc for events. Whil we have gowns for
Brigid...I have a big question. Does anyone here know what sort of
pram might be appropriate? With Brigid's current challenges, she will
not be walking likely for the next couple of years. If it were just an
issue of "babe in arms" for this year, I would not worry about it, but
since it will be going on a little longer, I thought I might try and
find or build something a little closer to accurate.
Any help out there would be appreciated, hints, plans etc - but don't
take the time to tell me that a 2 year old child in a pram is not
historically accurate - I will not give up reenacting because my
daughter is disabled. (That was already suggested to me by an
individual who will be left unnamed)
Thanks in advance
- I have a possible site just west of Alliston, I think - gotta find the guys card again, but he offered 20 acres for "rough camoping for you guys" very recently.

Might be a bit tough to find a location unless we can do something
that's fairly easy on the landscape, ie. no brush shelters or crapping
in the woods, but I suppose the number of participants would be fairly
small anyway. Also without public support(money) we would have to
pick up the costs ourselves. Pay a fee for the pleasure of misery!
I'd do it for sure just for the experience.
