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


Pack at least one set of hot and one set of 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 and Pants
    • Dresses, bodices, chemises, skirt
    • Fancy Garb
    • pouch to put your money and other stuff in
    • accesories/decorations
    • 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


    • snack food since you cannot rely on merchants being available and communal snacks never last long, if they even exist
    • Food or membership of a food fund
    • Water most other beverages do not keep you hydrated
    • Alcohol And a bottle opener for wine or flip tops.
    • cordial if you get sick of drinking plain tank water during the day.

== Dishes and utensiles

  • Bowl, trencher
  • 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

== Cooking **

  • pots and pans
  • measuring cups, spatula, mixing spoons
  • cooking fire iron ware like spits, tripods, coal shovels
  • Clean up stuff
    • Pot to heat clean-up water
    • dish soap and dishtowel

    • Basket(s) to hold/carry stuff

Camp Gear

    • Chair
    • table
    • stove
    • cooler
    • Tent (period or modern) incluing ropes, stakes and poles (failing this, find someone else's tent)
    • Sleeping bag/blanket (bring extra) (failing this, find someone else's)
    • pillow - optional, but much more comfortable
    • Lilo/sleeping mat/air mattrell/cot
    • Duct tape
    • Cable ties and safety pins
    • Plastic bags for garbage, dirty clothes, keeping stuff like your new drum dry

Bath kit

    • towel and wash cloths
    • soap
    • shampoo/conditioner
    • hair brush or comb
    • shaving razor, cream, mirror
    • toothbrush, toothpaste and floss
    • solar shower bag


    • 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).


  • Pain killer
  • Allergy meds
  • Sunscreen
  • Personal meds
