Re: So...why is this forum dying on it's ass?

I think one of the major appeals of FB is the ease of uploading images. Look at the reenactment groups there, and it is pictures pictures pictures - which, with FB, is dead simple to add.

7C during the night, 30C by midday. Regardless of whether you had full wool (our Hauptfeldwebel) or stripped-down HBT (everyone else), you suffered. We also went through 3x full jerry cans of water in the space of 24h - roughly 60 liters between 6 guys.

Less than a month to go - below a shot from another Balkans-themed patrol we did in May.

Re: most realistic looking reenactment photo

I don't see how bragging about your own work and playing one-up with other reenactors is helpful? Or am I missing something here?
