And then we stopped going. It was so much work, and it's so much easier for us to go to Double Wars, the other great camping event in Sweden. Of course you miss out on the lovely medieval town and all the concerts, lectures and other happenings, but it really was too much work. We may go again, but we haven't done it for six years.
So then our big chests ended up on Gotland, and since I couldn't figure out a way to get them here, and we really didn't have the space anyway, I donated them to people on Gotland.
For Double Wars I used a couple of chests made from wood chip. But one of them is getting old and rickety and they also have this very 19th- 20th century look. So I decided to make two breakdown plywood chests, inspired by the ones made by House Greydragon. My plan was to have them finished when we went to Double Wars, but with the work load that I had in April and May that was impossible. So now I am slowly putting the panels together and painting them. This far I have painted one lid and one large panel.
Thos chest will have motifs from the Grosse Heidelberger Liederhandschrift on all sides, the other one will have other courtly motifs.
