Don and I have tentatively decided to go ahead with plans to encourage
primitive camping at our June RAMSHA event. So far, I have started
promoting this and we are working on permissions and facilities, etc.
Let me define "primitive camping". This consists of 18th century
tents, gear and clothing. For this first year, I am going to limit
the time frame to what we call "Pre-1840". Next year, we will probably
be limiting it to Pre-1790. If you don't know what that means, but are
interested in participating, let me know.
IF you are interested in camping and don't have the gear, etc,
that's OK! Come and we will find a place for you to camp. It might
be in a non-primitive section, but we will all be hanging out together.
There will be no hookups, but if you think you can get an RV back
to the site, that is fine with me. I am very flexible. Let's see
how things go this year and next year, if we want to continue
it, we will work out some policies.
If you can't camp, but want to hang out with the campers, Come on out!
The reunion date is June 23. That means we will probably have camping
Friday through Sunday. Water, firewood and straw will be provided.
There will be no planned special events for this group, unless I
get someone who is interested in helping coordinate something. Ideas
would include a pot-luck supper, games, local historic site tours,
music, vendors, historic skills demonstrations, church service,
If you are interested, I will be putting more details on this page:
Eventually, there will be directions, policies, contact info, etc.
on this web site.
If you want to participate, email me!
If you want to HELP with this part of our event, email me!
