A Different Direction

Steampunk Camping with the Steam Tent Co-operative.   Gary Waidson - www.Steamtent.uk

It has been a while since I added anything on this web site, my apologies for that, but I have been exploring in a slightly different direction.

Due to a reduction in the living history events that I can now participate in, because I now require glasses, I have started to follow a less ordinary path into the world of Steampunk camping.

In many ways this is just an extension of the traditional / old school style of camping that I have enjoyed for many years, with a good measure of “bonkers” thrown in for the fun of it.

Steampunk draws on the ideas of HG Wells, Jules Verne and other early Science fiction writers looking towards what the Victorians thought the future might be like.

On the one hand that allows me to indulge my preference for old fashioned solutions to camping requirements.

On the other hand, because it is ultimately a fantasy, it removes the need for 100% “authenticity” which has characterised my living history work for so many years.

For that reason I have been spending some of my time lately, gathering a group of like minded individuals together that share that interest with the intention of setting up enjoyable, atmospheric camps with a retro / old school / Steampunk theme.

If you think that might be of interest, you can find out more and read about our events on the Steam Tent Co-operative web site here.
