Veteran of Pennsic Wars (VPW) since 1981, so I've learned a couple of things.

Shelter - Canvas vs nylon, waterproofing, staking
Bedding - air mattress through four-poster bed
Garb - how much is too much? Layers, revisiting climate
Food - Period vs modern; Coolers and ice; Avoiding food poisoning
Cooking - beyond what food, how will you cook?
Hygiene, Health, Self Care, and First Aid
Drink: HYDRATION - alcohol and caffeine vs "Good for you"
