  1. The Traveling Pyrate

    I thought some of you might be interested in my traveling camping kit for events. With the exception of the period hammock (I used a lightweight nylon hammock), I built this kit in 2009 for my first attendance at FTPI (known as Pirates in Paradise or PIP then). Over the years this kit has served me very well. This is strictly for events that I fly to. When I drive the stops come off. This kit was weighed for each piece in order to verify it meets the airline 50 # limit. and it comes in a couple pounds under. Kit includes: wedge tent stakes ropes a ground cloth a wool army blanket a cloth bag for pillow (place extra clothes or coat in the bag for a pillow) a German duffelbag a cot OR a period hammock and bag (depending on if I know there are available trees) What it doesn't include: poles - I usually have someone bring extras for me or stop at home depot a chair - I really need a chair with a back and so far have not built one that works with the kit (But I am working on that) My pirate clothing or weapons This bag gets checked and I sometimes roll my knife, utensils and mug inside the tent in the bag. I bring a carry-on with clothing and a small backpack for essentials and that covers it. I know there are improvements to be made - feel free to chime in with ideas. mP
