Don,

Sorry to stir the pot, I only mention these issues so others might avoid a little discomfort. Yes, the guidelines are do-able, that wasn't my point.

I was in with the AoP (Federal) in '94 and had the time of my life and made every inch of the march as well. That experience is fairly unique in the reenacting world and makes me feel like passing advice to others who may not have ever done something like this.

You went C.S. with Magwood & those dudes right?
