Here's a suggested list of items you might like to think about taking to a camping event like Pennsic.


  • Garb - at least one set of both hot and cold. Be ready when the weather does the most annoying thing you can think of.
    • Boots or other footwear (x 2 pairs) walking, dancing, fighting
    • T-Tunics or dress if you're a girlie
    • Pants
    • pouch to put your money and other stuff in
    • socks or hose
    • Belt
    • stuff to wear to bed (depending upon shared state of sleeping arrangements). undertunics/dresses make great period nightgowns for both sexes. Otherwise consider pyamas/boxers unless you are close friends with your tent mate.
    • A *warm* Cloak (it gan get real cold at night)
  • Mundane Clothing - a dry outfit in the car can make a world of difference if everything else gets wet
  • Food and utensils
    • snack food since you cannot rely on merchants being available and communal snacks never last long, if they even exist
    • Bowl
    • Spoons (2 are harder to loose than one, besides, I don't like eating sweet stuff with a spoon that's covered in vegetable gunk),
    • knife
    • dishtowels
    • Tankard or goblet
    • Alcohol And a bottle opener for wine or flip tops.
    • cordial if you get sick of drinking plain tank water during the day.
    • Food or membership of a food fund
    • Water most other beverages do not keep you hydrated
    • Basket(s) to hold/carry stuff
  • Bath kit
    • towel and wash cloths
    • soap
    • shampoo/conditioner
    • hair brush or comb
    • shaving razor, cream, mirror
    • solar shower bag
  • Entertainments
    • Armour and armour repair kit
    • Musical instruments
    • Craft tools and material
    • Class materials or notebook
    • Money to buy cool stuff from the merchants
    • craft projects - if you're not fighting, there'll be plenty of time to sew/knit/braid/weave, etc while you watch the fighting or socialise.
    • A Good Supply of No Shit, There I Was stories. (Note- these are generally available onsite).
