Someone promised pictures and I've seen only a handful. Who's to blame?

That would be the photographer, but she is working on them....

The cargo/supply tent stuffed to the gills was answer enough. I love the bales, baskets and barrels.

Aye Dorian came up with the ingenious way of constructing the cargo, which Josephine bundled all together. Not to mention they donated their tent for the warehouse. Brig got to play in the tick infested leaves to fill up all the hand stitched sacks before sitting down to make her lace, Jack did the artwork on the bale marks along with Sean Merriweather. Josephine and Dorian did a remarkable job on the ingots, they were awesome indeed. Jack also figured out the paper folding for the cabin plunder, such as the gold dust, pearls, jewelry that was captured, etc., as well as handling hand copying the inventory lists... and producing every issue of the Spectator and the London Gazzette that applied, and of course everyone donated stockings for the 7 bales worth of stockings...and even Fionn donated the "good for nothing shirt" as well as other garments that were captured. And of course many of the crewe spent months and I mean months researching all this to make sure things were accurate...

And of course this was all on top of/added to everything else they had to have ready for the event... I mean Edward spent days researching a spit for the cooking demo, Cross had his sail makers items set up, Adam had the forge, Constable put together the field carriage for the new gun....just for an example.

What's the blue box next to your tent with the lid propped open? looks like maybe a big writing desk?

Awesome display!

Is that the tool box Dorian spoke of re-purposing awhile back? I'd love to see details of that one.
