Re: my worst reenacting experience
- As I recall it was about $40 or something like that! It paid for our
beer that night and that was it.
I was wearing a greatcoat too and was with the Newf's. Man that seems
like a loooong time ago in a galaxy far far away.

My experience over the past 20+ years of reenacting has led me away from 1812 and leaves me with a strong preference AWI and F&I in that order.
I have not found the 1812 genre to the "tightest", most consistent and best run of all the genres I have been involved with, but I will say the same of the other eras, too.
No lengthy rational. Suffice it to say that is the way it is for me. But I rarely field any more and enjoy interacting with the public.
To each their own.
