LARP and SCA Camping Tips
When you are making your clothing, there are two things to aim for
in clothing you expect to camp in. Make it machine washable, as
it will get dusty, muddy, sweaty, smoky, and pretty much as thoroughly
besmirched as it can be. Also aim for natural fabrics. poly-cotton
blends are ok, but quite as good. natural fabrics are more comfortable,
they breathe, and will help you stay cooler in hot weather, and
insulate you in cold weather. if you are staying for a number of
days it is a very fine thing to have a clean shirt or chemise for
every day, though outer clothing can be worn a few times. Its all
about the layers.
Hats are wonderful, useful garments, well worth the packing space.
simple pieces of fabric can help keep you warm or cool, and keep
the sun and the rain alike off your head. There are all kinds of
hats, but I recommend at the very least having a hood to keep you
warm and dry, and a piece of fabric, cotton or linen for hot weather
to keep the sun off, soak up sweat, and to soak in cool water when
the day is at its hottest.
