Great! When I head back to Florida, I may wander over there. I'm thinking about bringing the shop to it next year and would like to see what it's like. Any idea who is in charge of sutlers?

Go here for all the information and contact information: http://www.floridafrontiersmen.org/alafia2014.html Iron Jon and I (and a few others) are considering a week-long camp next year.

I'll take lots of pictures. Most of the camp is Rev War/mountain man/some First Nations. Some are wary of us pyrates, having seen too many Hollywood/fantasy pirate and are worried about us ruining the authenticity of the event. That having been said, the organizers would love to have an accurate camp.

Here's a better one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3W-Iwlp_ok

These were taken during the non-public days 2013, so here is a good representation of the level of authenticity required to participate in the week-long (Two weekend) camp.

A panorama taken on one of the main shopping streets, Lee Betz at Five Points (yes, the place is so big it has street names). If you're wondering about the lack of people, it was about 8:30 in the morning and about 40 outside with the wind about 20 knots. It got crowded later, filling up with what the locals call "flatlanders", their term for the general public.

Alafia from the air. From the Florida Frontiersmen (the sponsoring organisation) website. The actual site is about twice this, but the rest is the woods walk rifle competition range and the modern camping area. There were over 1000 primitive campers and over 200 vendors.

Bummed that I ended up missing it. Can't seem to escape the frozen north, although exchanging it for the frozen south might not have been such a good deal ;-)
