New Season

The 2012 Crossing is now a fond memory and we are embarking upon a new season. I was expecting a very physically active reenactment season. Sure enough, we kicked it off with a film production, America's First D-Day, Robert Child, the director incorporates  lots of action in scenes where re-enactors are running through woods, up and down down hills, carrying and moving weapons. We had two three pound-shot cannon which takes six soldiers to move. We slogged through the mud pushing them up and down a hill, repeatedly for takes. So the training continues, but I won't bore you with the details. See you at the next Washington's Crossing re-enactment.

I got side tracked one morning due to a problem with the front door knob. I COULDN'T GET OUT! By the time I reached the gym I only had time to do rowing for strength. Later, got an aerobic workout with sword practice at class.
