I found out about a summer internship I can do at a historical battlefield near my town.  It's 10 weeks long, $225 a week, and I can possibly be a reenactor for their program concerning the French and Indian War.

Pros: something new and different, reenacting, I love that time period, reenacting gear is provided, the money is way more than I make at my job now, I'm not stuck long-term

Cons: very little time off, high mid-summer + wool = self-explanatory, I may have to go on leave from my part-time job

I'm 50-50 in my decision...

I'd do it!  paid to be in character and outfits provided? I'd do it in a heart beat if there where more opportunities closer to me.

I'm assuming its a mostly full week gig?

Our youngest son was a Civil War re-enactor for the Leadmine Regiment (Galena, IL) for 2 summers.  He loved it.  Yes, it was in the 90's, and he wore wool and flannel, but the leaders stressed the importance of drinking lots of water and made sure the younger ones did this.  He participated in battles, camp life, and learned a lot from it.  It was all voluntary, didn't get paid a cent, but he wouldn't have traded it for the world.

It will be a memory you can always carry with you.
