    I went to a tactical event and got little sleep either night. The drive home was only about 2 1/2 hours and I thought I could make it okay. I felt...

    I don't use the reservoir. I found the machine did not push enough air with it. I'll have to check on the hose cover, though.

    I also endorse cpap.com as your primary source. I've got a portable machine with batteries. I've found that with fully charged batteries, I can get two full nights of sleep off one battery. The...

    I used the word "Possible" because it was. However, without some due diligence research, I can't say if tinned foods were common in the areas along the line of march in South and North Carolina.

    Ben,

    I disagree completely. Presenting your comments in an intelligent form is the best way to get an intelligent response.

    Not to degrade the information, but we don't have any idea what a "unit" means. It could be one guy from a "unit". I'm an independent and when asked for a unit affiliation I use "Mother Hudson's...

    Nice selection, Daniel.

    I looked for some decent modern versions that would pass for my sutler tent last summer. Almost drove myself crazy. You can't get a quality pocketknife for cheap to...

    The living history scenarios are site specific and limited in scale. From what I can tell, only 5 or 6 guys at any one site portraying specific impressions. I believe locals have soaked up most of...

    Been there, done that.

    Red River II in 1998. BEST. EVENT. EVER.

    I started reenacting in 1976 and, by 1998, I was jaded. I thought I had done it all, seen it all. Well, let me tell, that week...

    The best units, hands down, have one thing in common: camaradrie. If the members don't gel together cohesively, it doesn't matter how you structure it or how well you drill, it won't last. You...
