Re: Fantasy Style Pouch

Very nicely done. Manveruon has done a few pouches and things with that closure system, and has said nothing but good things about it...I expect you'll enjoy using this for years!

Re: Working on a Bree-lander kit

SO MUCH GOOD going on here! I don't know the period extensively, so I'm going to pass on commenting on minutia, but I will say that it looks very cohesive, culturally relevant, and pretty much exactly what I'd expect to run into in a place with mixed races like Bree.

It certainly eliminates "that one guy" who isn't in any of the photos!

Re: Taking photos while out

For years, I just carried a smaller digital camera with a 10-second timer and would jam it into a low crotch in a tree or balance it on a rock until the shot I wanted was framed right, and then go run in front of it to insert myself into the frame. Still works, but a tiny tripod makes an enormous di...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Very nice! Looks like a great time out! I'm always fascinated to see forests from around the globe and compare to what I know...some things are SO different, and yet there are similarities in how a forest is 'grown' that can be found pretty much everywhere. The more things change, the more they stay...

Re: Natural Leather Dye

Then I turn off the heat and wait for it to cool down to *just* cool enough to stick my fingers in without getting burned. (One night I added a bit of cold water to speed that process - but just a bit) A word of caution: If you're using brain-tanned deerhide, cowhide splits, or other flesh-on-both-...

Re: Keeping Watch

The MERS folks have discussed it a few times, both online and in person on various trips, and the general consensus has been thus far to simply enjoy ourselves and get our rest. Though it seems to shirk realism, it could be said that such a group is "Reenacting a camp during peacetime or well w...

Re: Summer 2020 available now!

I am curious about the traction with turnshoes. Through my reading of the forum, I've noticed that with turnshoes, people have issue with hills, grass, and other slick surfaces. With the traction noted in the issue, is there a special trick or way to get the soles a little less slippery? I've alway...

Ooh! Ooh! My dear Greg, would you be so kind as to share your hard-won secrets with us? I should be ever so grateful, and endeavor to be half so well shod as yourself. :mrgreen: WOW. That's laying it on pretty thick. I'll have to gather some notes...I'm actually in the process of making some new bo...
