21st century junk

Battle of the Nations preparations are going full steam ahead- I have weapons and new armour humming along.  I'm working on a new body harness to ensure my spine isn't mangled, and Clalibus is working on a team jupon.  Brian du Val made me a pair of shields.  I'm running a lot, fighting a lot, and going to martial arts classes at my gym.  Really, it's all too much to put into the little blurb I have time to post this morning.  What I really want to talk about is this article.

It touches on something I've been trying to do for years now- just eliminating modern stuff from my camp.  I try not to bring it, or touch it.  Plastic in a medieval context sort of makes me itch.  At Gulf War I quietly avoided ever sitting on anything but a wooden chair or the ground.  I made a little medieval bubble around myself for as much time as I could.  There were concessions like showering, tooth paste and deodorant.  I don't want to smell like a surf.  Simply eliminating modern things where it's possible (and it's almost always possible) has improved my surroundings.  Give it some thought, and you might be able to do it to.
