    I have a love of history, so can often be found living / playing in castles across Scotland and even south into England.

    I did Roman reenacting for a short bit with Legio XIIII GMV. Loved it but I moved and didn't get back into it as there is no unit nearby now. Now I mostly do Star Wars costuming. I guess you could say I'm a Galactic Civil War reenactor. Lol

    As much as I would love a stormtrooper uniform, I think my good lady wife would divorce me. I had to get rid of all my Star Trek kit (used when attending conventions) years ago.

    For many years I reenacted early American history. No surprise, I was usually a Rev. War Rifleman. But, I also belong to the North American Order of the Beaver a/k/a Fraternal Orders of Beaver a/k/a FOB. This is a group of Master Masons who are initiated only when they are in proper clothes for the period of the fur, primarily beaver, trapping and trade era. Roughly 1750-1830. The rites must be put on in a proper lodge (tent) of the period by other Brothers. The Order was formed, with dispensation, in Michigan but it nationwide with several thousands members. I am a fairly early member, #221. Good group.

    I did American Revolutionary War reenactment for many years (Lee's Troop, 1st Continental Light Dragoons), U.S. Civil War ( 1st Connecticut Volunteer Cavalry & 71st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry) as Well as WWII (327th Glider Infantry Regt.)

    Currently I am involved with the SCA.

    Spent about 20 years in the SCA. It isn't as fun as the 90s were. Now I spend my time at at sci fi conventions.
