Zoom meeting was a success

Good start

Sure, there were 5 of us, but kudos to Josh for setting it up. Rob was not able to make it due to hardware difficulties. I think we should plan on these monthly, maybe bi-monthly As we use this format, uit will get easier.

James in hospital

Please pray and make sacrifice for Josh's dad, James -- a hearty member of our group who is in the hospital for gall bladder surgery.

Footwear

As most of us detest caligae for hurting our feet, whynot get an enclosed shoe? I am posting the link to some of the following:

vindolanda fell boot by Masterbogdan

<https://www.etsy.com/listing/778764472/vindolanda-fell-boot-calcei?ref=shop_home_active_9&frs=1>

These are the ones Mark said were good. He has this pair also, but I am not sure of the correctness for our time:

Castleford No 13 Roman shoes ( Soldier shoes) Shoes of Roman soldiers of the 1st century AD. Reconstruction based on finds.

<https://www.etsy.com/listing/857982761/castleford-no-13-roman-shoes-soldier?ref=shop_home_active_1&frs=1>

These look interesting and good, but I'd ask Mark, he might see something incorrect.

And HERE: is an interesting kit. I know, rubber soles, etc. but someone is thinking ahead. <https://www.etsy.com/listing/729483507/calceus-roman-boot-turnshoe-kit-for-men?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=roman+shoes&ref=sr_gallery-1-11&frs=1>

I don't know if I am going to be able to make any events next year. I'm going to be crazy busy next year. Too try and catch up on what I couldn't do this year.

What we discussed was, coyote brown. Patch on front with LEGIO IX Hispana with the "IX" in brass, IF I can find that somewhere cheapish. Roman name on back, abbreviated like they did "D. Mercts. Varianvs" etc. Rank such as "Miles" blood type.

Playing with, maybe we can get our resident Latin expert, Favstivs, to help with abbreviations.

Is there any interest? Yes, I AM trying to get YOU interested and participating. But also, I like spreading the Roman word.

Fabrica and talking.

Marsh Leg IX Gmail
 

Look kinder, to have a basic kit is not enough. What Publivs (Paul) meant about kit, is that each member needs to have the items he'd need to live with. A loculus to carry it all in, but a spoon (wood or horn), a knife (no forks then). A wooden bowl and maybe a plate, but also a patera (like a frying pan... Best from sotw). All the things that you'd need to live with. Some carry a spongia wrapped in oiled leather (I know that Sextvs and Faustvs will want to share) but most would not do that. A bota bag, that can be covered in goat skin would be a great fabrica project. Somewhere, I have the Cali IX's instructions for this.

Perhaps you could get a kit due a loculus from Marcvs... He used to make the buckle ring and if not, Raymond's Quiet Press has them. 

If there is a Cost Plus World Market near you
 Go on and look at wooden bowls. RevWar sutlers sell horn and wooden spoons, along with simple eating knives. 

Anyway, these should be goals. We don't need public events. But, we do need to have SOME events to survive. What do you want? It needs to be more than just me 
Best for now, Marsh
