Grand Portage 2016

Grand Portage 2016


It has pretty much gotten to the point where Grand Portage is the only historical reenactment I make it to in the year.  Being my old “home” as well as my daughters’ favorite place and event of the year, we pretty much have to go.  Anyway, I will let  the photos speak for themselves, but some of the highlights include:

-A friend of the girls’ and our family coming along for her first reenactment ever (she has never even modern camped)

-The celebration of Jeremy’s nuptials

-A number of tattoos done, including adding a mark with a gar jaw tattoo “needle”

-Noelle (our 9 1/2 year old), tried to defend her fire-starting title.  She ended up taking second this year, losing to first by less than a second, having fire in less than 13 seconds.

    I’m glad you had fun, and even better to have the family along. This next weekend is our large event…probably the only ” organized” event that we do any more. It’s all about re uniting with old friends in an 18th C setting. Sure wish we were closer to G.P.
    On a different note, our bear season opens on Sept 1st. I’m making cartridges for my smoothbore today.
