I would like to thank the Idaho Civil War Volunteer group for putting on an amazing "Gem County: The River Through Time" event at Emmett, Idaho Oct 3rd - 5th, 2014. They were so kind and welcoming towards us. We really appreciate this wonderful group of Civil War enthusiasts for making our trip totally worth it and cementing some great friendships which we look forward to cultivating in years to come.
We bought a new car. My Pop Can died and J's Blue is getting on in years so we figured we needed a new hauler. We name all our cars. We named this 2004 Honda CV-4, Ginga. This was Ginga's first Civil War re-enactment. She did well. Our 6 foot ridge poles fit. That was the number one factor in buying a new car. Had to fit the Civil War gear.
J is fortifying himself before the big event. We are huge fans of all things Mtn Dew.
J and I had a great time in Idaho. We would like to thank the re-enactors for being so warm and welcoming towards us. We made some good friends and shared some great food. Everyone was so kind towards us outsiders. We would also like to thank Emmett, Idaho for providing beautiful weather all three days we were there. My teeth did not chatter once with cold. On a personal note I am a high anxiety person, and I have to admit that this was the first three days in over a year that I actually felt relaxed. I need more vacations like this.
