St. Augustine Gathering

is anybody planning on going this year?, some friends of mine from school and i are planning on going though i dont know how i feel about going to the bash since i dont really have any "formal" pirate garb so i'll probably be drinking at the tavern instead.

Aye Mate!

Was there last year and had a blast - plan to be there this year too. Can't beat St. Augustine for a great town. The 'pirate battle' got a little confusing . . . but hopefully it will work a little smoother this year. Overall a fantastic weekend in a wonderful place. I wouldn't worry too much on the 'formal' wear - the dress code struck me as more a guideline than a code - and anything you're lacking, you can find there if you need to. Hope to see you there!

I couldnt find any information as far as camping is concerned... Is it a period correct camping or pitch a tent camping... I know there are hotels nearby but if i can save the money i will.

I thought i read somewhere on here of a review from 2010 saying there was camping but i could have been mistaken.

Great place to stay is the Pirate Haus, owned and operated by Conrad, a reenactor.

It's located in the historic section and is within walking distance of the event.

shot them an email so we'll see... what would be ideal for me is to find and area to park my truck and camp out of the back of it since i have a camper shell.
