1 Items to Carry and Eat on Tue Jun 01, 2010 12:36 am

In preparation for Henkel Square in a month, I have been looking around for the items I'll need, both online and in my home. I have come up with a few questions.
First, what is the usual mode of transportation for clothing, books, etc. In other words, what should I use for luggage? I may be able to scrounge up a chest, but it seems unlikely. Any other ideas?
Second, what are the commode situations at Henkel Square? (I'll be staying in the Muckelroy House if that makes any difference).

I'm guessing food will be organized by the house leader, so I'll find out what edibles to bring later, or that would be my next question.

Third, does anyone know where to buy an ink-well in Houston? I can do online, but I'm more inclined to handle what I buy than to order sight-unseen.

Thanks! If I have more questions (most likely) I'll probably post here.

Hi Victoria!

As for luggage. Are you arriving Friday night or Saturday morning? If on Friday, you don't have to worry about being period to bring your stuff in. Saturday morning you will. If that is the case baskets and carpet bags will do. I use those willow laundry baskets.

As for food, Debbie Russell should be contacting you about the arrangements for the Muckelroy.

There is a modern restroom on site next to the apothecary building which serves as the visitor entrance to the site. This restroom is only a one seat each for men and women. There is also a public restroom outside the site in the square that has 2 more seats each. If there are enough registered to warrant it, I may approach the site about getting a portable in.

Don't have any idea about the ink well. Hopefully someone else will pipe in with a suggestion or perhaps someone has one they can lend.
