They needed any more water at Pennsic IV? The songs are still sung of
that rainy rainy war.
I have been known to bring a kiddy-pool to hot desert weather tourney
days, cover the rim with dark fabric for "ten-foot-rule" sake, and have
my friends in to soak feet and regulate temperature.
Where can one learn cooperage these days? We could make a proper tub of
proper materials. Which, of course, brings the topic back around to
historical containers, whether for food or for people. :-)
