I seem to have stepped in from my many travels to a scene that saddens my heart. In my own defence I would like to say that my lack of posts come from many things happening here as well. My best friends 17 year old son was in a one car accident and in ICU for 40 days. He`s home now but much of my time was spent with them. On top of that, this is the time of year when we reenactors get to spend the time doing the one thing that is closest to our 18th century heros. Hunt the elusive white tail deer. (another story to come later) This has taken me on a few trips that add up to 1500+ miles of travel. So my posts have been few although I do check in from time to time.
Most of my feelings have already been expressed by others and let it be known that I will remain a Mohicanite no matter what happens. I too, like most hard core reenactors tend to answer more questions then ask. I must also say that I don`t read the Cronicles either because I just don`t read fiction, even 18th century fiction. But that`s not to say they aren`t good. I think they are still needed here for they do spark the historical questions that some of us like to talk about.
I have made many new friends here in the past 2 1/2 years. (thanks for the Christmas cards Adele and Caitlin. We make them out every year but they seem to never get mailed) (Adele, Cyndie wants to talk to you about Conner) See what I mean? And the rest of you know who you are as well. Real friends. And there are many more. It`s not just LOTM, we are now one big family and some of us need it really bad.
I know what you are going thru Rich and Elaine. You will do what`s best for you because you have to. Even if it saddens our hearts.
Now lets start talking about this Gathering G2K01. I have word that the French Trader and his wife have been going over every battle field and burnt settlement to bring you the largest and finest quantity of trade goods come June.
