*edit* Nevermind, I won't be able to go. I've got a family trip to New York planned for that weekend. Oh well.

Actual cooktop shouldn't be necessary. I generally bring hotdogs for fire-roasting dinner for one or two nights. Otherwise, you should bring other things that are easy to grab-and-eat.

For this purpose, fruit is a real winner. Grab a sack of oranges - they last quite awhile, they're easier to grab and eat, and they're full of orange juice (you'll need the hydration). Also, I usually bring two of the large bags of beef jerky. The protein works wonders, but the salt requires you to eat it ONLY after battles. Don't try it before or you'll dry yourself out while fighting.

Additionally, I bring beer for night-time consumption. Not much nutritional value, but it'll fill you up if you drink enough!!

Oh, and also there's a Wal-Mart about 15 minutes down the road.


But!! If you would rather have actual COOKED food, just bring money. For pretty cheap, you can buy actual hot food (to the tune of quesadillas, sausage biscuits, and hamburgers, depending on time of day) from the on-site kitchen.

The hosts of the event own a large horse ranch. The area where we fight is behind this ranch, and upon it sits a large barn. The barn houses their kitchen for these events (and it's also where weapons-checking is performed).

Most of the food can be purchased from the food for, as I said, very cheap. I think most items are around $2 to $3, depending, and they'll fill you up. They also serve coffee for us addicts.

If you brought about $25, you could probably eat like a king (or, at least, a king who is eating from a barn-kitchen-diner).

Generally, I combine the two. I bring my own stuff, and I eat from the kitchen. Honestly, having someone serve you a hot breakfast is THE BEST EVAR (!!) when you're wandering around groggy in the cold morning.

And last thing: Buy and bring your own 24-pack of water bottles. You'll thank yourself. I'll have my own 24-pack.

Re: Winter War 2011


Depends on whether Duckie is going with me or not. I'm going to be departing from Tallahassee a little after noon on that Thursday. I like to have camp set up before nightfall on Thursday night.

I'll let you know as things progress.

Would whoever is there when I get there (estimating around 12:00 to 1:00 AM) be able to help set up the tent with Steely, Charlee, and I? I doubt I will be able to be of much assistance to them.

Re: Winter War 2011


Yeah man. We'll help ya out. Since you've never been there before, let me go ahead and point out that it's behind the Red *Something* Horse Ranch. You have to drive down their driveway, past the house, farm, and horse-training stuff, to a hut where the woods start.

This hut is "troll." Troll is the facility where your dues are paid. You pay, sign the release (like we have at practice), and get your event tag. Then, you're able to move in to the camp. Phone connection dies pretty hard out there, but try your best.

Worst-case scenario, ask for Cordane. If you find Cu Sith (pronounced "Koo Shee"), then they'll know me and know where I am. If no one you find knows me, ask for Eryndor. They'll welcome you if you claim Deakon and Sidia. They'll then help you find the Canaur camp.

Re: Winter War 2011


Alright, thanks.

In other news, next weekend I'm going to get together a list of everyone going and who's doing what and blah blah blah. If anyone can't make it to practice, write here whether you're going, what you're bringing, and all that other nonsense.

Meanwhile, also figure out if everyone has a ride. We need to make sure that's coordinated.
