I will be attending. This will be my first year going. I've nothing but great things about the event. Several of my friends have been participating in living history there for many years. I'm very excited!

Always a grand time. I'll be in a British bell tent for this event, though.

Currently looking for WWI items, specifically photos of the 116th infantry regiment, and any material related to the USS Olympia.

Always on the lookout for any rations, miscellaneous personal items, pack filler, care package stuffers, knit Red Cross material, and oddball equipment to supplement the Doughboy display.
Have some extras? I help friends fill out their living history kit, and could always use more loaner gear!

I definitely agree w that. I always love going into the hanger and meeting the vets. With each year there are just less and less....very sad. Especially a few who have been mainstays for years and then suddenly....they aren't there any more.

I'm going. This will be my second time since I retired (it always seems to be on drill weekend or I was deployed). I'm taking my daughter (4) and my niece (25) this year.

Very nice! Have fun there!

I remember last year as I was leaving, I thought it's going to be a year before I drive back up there...Seems like that was yesterday! This is the show that always takes my first week of vacation leave for the year...sort of my "official start of summer"!!
