Camping out beside the Iron

Date: 10 June, 2006

Location: Vinderheima

Premise: that DARC has gone too long with it's Iron experiments excluding the 'just hang out with friends in costume and camping' side. Those of us who don't do the Iron stuff wanted some fair time for our activities, and since it's hard to find time to get together, we set up a camp next to the latest Iron experiment.

The Team: Kaðlín, Bera, Keja, and Rig, with occassional visits from the Iron boys, and the man in between - Ragnarr.

This was a casual DARC camp, not at all up to museum quality attention to detail. We wanted to camp together, cook together, and enjoy each other's company. Eye glasses and modern footwear are the two things I didn't want to give up.
