Now that is an idea indeed.

My initial intentions for 2010 is to have the Allied army start in two different locations on Friday, join up on Saturday and bivouac together that night so in total, I'm trying to find 3 locations for the bivouacs. Water is naturally an important part of the site selection process...and also a safe location for the horses at night.

We are also going to certainly be limited for space on the waggon-train. The guy that let us burrow his waggon doesn't want to let us have it again (after last year's accident) which means that I'm looking at a solution of having 2/3 donkeys with baskets following us. There is an interested stable at Rambouillet which were are trying to negociate a price at the moment.

or if you can find 1 or two small handpulled cart the only problem with that is you need more personel for the wagontrain

That's another idea but I must admit that for this sort of thing, I'd be more tempted to put the water with the donkeys and let the soldiers carry all their extra bits on them.

Please keep in mind that the water requirements for any quantity of horses and the donkeys themselves is going to be far more than the donkeys can lug about. Water for tinfantry may be possible though.

Definately Derk.

I've already scrapped the idea of doing as the cavalry and work horses did in 2009 as they are just too many. The problem is that I now have to try and seek out 2/3 locations that can accommodate the horses safely and that can meet their needs without compromising the event for the participants.

Right, a little up-date about this issue.

At the moment, the 3 bivouac spots that I have intend to have are coming along nicely (2 out of 3 sites confirmed) and there is a water-point that is accessible in all the camps (including horses) so that should make life for you guys alittle easier. Very Happy

Hmm, without the wagontrain it's gona be a bit harder with supplies, but on the other hand, our mobility will increase so perhaps more breaks can compensate that. I like the idea though of the strategic points Very Happy Those will make the Frenchies encourrage to march faster ^^. It also give a very nice realistic 'extra' to the whole experience.

Well, the donkey convoy has been knocked into touch and there is another waggon train that is being investigated (waiting for quotes and the like at the moment). But I have plans to use this waggon-train has the sutler waggon, which will be manned by the very few women that will now have a proper run to play...and you'll be able to by their goodies with the period money that will be distributed to you for the occasion.

At the moment, it's still a plan but when things get confirmed, the rules and plans will be posted of course.
