Re: Old reenactor, new forum member intro

Also! I saw you guys posting about the “lembas” waybread you made recently on your Instagram page, and I wanted to encourage you to share it here too! We’ve had several great threads about “cram” and other sorts of hard-tack/biscuit-ish trail bread, and I know it’s a subject we all enjoy! Here’s a t...

Middle-earth reenactment and trekking has made it this far because we've grown slowly on the foundation of being good people. You'll find nothing other than that here!


And we’re humble too! :P :lol:

Re: is your kit washing machine safe?

For what it’s worth, my philosophy seems to be pretty much exactly in line with Greg’s. Leather stuff never gets washed, naturally, but all the linen and most of the cotton (unfortunately - hopefully soon to be replaced) stuff does. Still haven’t actually gotten around to making my woolen outer tuni...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Yeah, I feel like the Ruana can be made to work a lot better as a general trekking garment, but I definitely need to do more testing with it. It may also benefit from a small hole in the back through which I can pass my quiver strap and/or other straps as necessary, but I don’t think I want to make ...

Re: My MERF mention on Youtube

FWIW on the films: while I think the Hobbit trilogy started out muddled and turned execrable, I agree with you that the LotR one still holds up well. I've got lots of quibbles toward the end of the LotR trilogy, but FotR was a masterwork pretty much start to finish - and the rest I think still quit...

Re: cloak making trick I just learned....

Smart! And then you can use the mock-up cloaks you make as loaner gear, to encourage newbies to get their own stuff ASAP!

Dúnedain Hats?

I recently started a discussion over on the Facebook group about this, but I’m afraid I was a little unclear, so I figured I’d try again on here. Also, I feel like the conversation on the forums veers a bit more academic, which is the direction I’m really looking for this topic anyway. SO - I’m plan...
