Default You know you're a re-enactor if...

* Sleeping outside in the rain and mud is your idea of a fun Saturday night.

* You can identify a Regiment by the curses you hear from their camp.

* You can't sing without a mug of some sort of libation in your hand.

* You can spot 100% wool or linen from 30 yards.

* You have spent over $500 on clothes that were out of styleover 200 years ago.

* You've ever lovingly fondled your musket.

* You can eat 5 meals out of a wooden bowl, but only wash it twice.

* You have spent almost $1000 on a gun that needs a sharp rock to make it work.

* You have traveled over 1000 miles to sleep on the ground at a historical site.

* You drive by some open land and think, "What a great place for a battle!"

* You think women in 18th century dresses are sexier than seeing women in shorts and tank tops.

* You know, by heart, lines from The Patriot, Revolution,Drums Along the Mohawk, and any Monty Python skit.

* You've worn wool when the temperature hovers at 100 degrees.

* Your home dinnerware consists of items made of red earthware or tin.

* No one will watch war movie or period drama because you constantly point out the historical mistakes.

* Your re-enacting wardrobe is more expensive than your business attire.

* Your "top-ten" music selections include "To Anachreon in Heaven", The Lass of Richmond Hill", "Capt. Thunder", and 200 verses of "Yankee Doodle".
I'd rather be historically accurate than politically correct.
