I joined the Navy right out of school back in 1981. My parents retired and moved out here, the Navy let me go in 93 and i needed a place to go for a while. Well, we liked it here and the rest is history. The only problem is that there is not much to do here (no people). There has been a increase of Civil War and Indian war living history but i never find out about them untill it's too late.

Hay Reb, By the looks of the photo's, you are allowed to have your ram rods on your rifles during battle. Here, well at most events, they are not allowed on the battlefield nor the bayonet. At some tactical events they are allowed but, you have to sign many waivers and disclaimers but they seem to have some of the best turn outs. The funny thing is, i've seen more injuries at the "Safe" events and none at the tactical's.

I just found out that there is a Civil War reenactment/Living history group not 20 miles from me....go figure....They do both Federal and Confederate impressions so i hope to join up with them this spring. I don't have any Confederate items but i have the full Federal uniform and equipment right down to my BVDS's ;D

My friend Jerry Laing just emailed me these photos, so I thought that I would share them. Says Jerry:
Hey Guys - Hope all is well with you. Went to a Civil War reenactment out in Moorpark yesterday, and ran into Phil Spangenberger (he's EVERYWHERE), and... Ray Herbeck. Also, two other guys who were in Price of Freedom -- one was in the Mexican Army band, and had the same complaint we did -- "they made me be a Mexican." Yeah, well... duh! The defenders didn't have no stinkin' band!!! Anyway, Ray remembered you guys and said to tell you Hi. Jerry
That's Ray Herbeck there with the long, flowing grey hair. He was the reenactor coordinator for the 1986 TV film, GONE TO TEXAS. You may remember him in the film, especially during the Santa Anna surrender scene where Ray can be seen sporting an overfull beard and pipe, while hovering over Sam Elliott.
Man those steaks look good. I wonder if he's using period aluminum foil for the corn on the cob, though?
