Can't go on any trips until after the Gettysburg 150th anniversary. Thanks to my dog's illness and passing, I am way, way behind on sewing my Civil War period clothes. If all goes well, the Granny will be Hiking around the Gettysburg battlefield the last few days of June wearing a long dress, sunbonnet, petticoats and a corset. If it doesn't, she may be wearing dress fabric pinned around her, but still the corset. There are close to 20 miles of hiking trails in the Gettysburg National Military Park. The reenactments are not on the battlefield but on nearby farms (the NPS doesn't want people tearing up the actual battlefield which is, after all, hallowed ground), but I'll get plenty of walking there, too. If I weren't a history nut and my eldest son weren't one of these reenactor nuts, I would right now be out checking snow melt levels in the Cascades!
I will be back July 9 and will start planning backpacking trips (in 21st century clothes) then.
At least being tied to the sewing machine is better than that out-of-control thread! Although I noticed they got as far as mint juleps. Unfortunately Kentucky Derby weekend was several weeks ago.
