There are a couple of groups who do DAK as secondary impressions. There were a couple of Africa events recently. One is in the Pac NW. Also there is a very real movement generally, and in the south and west of the US prticularly, towards doing more MTO events (Huzzah!), and having fewer "Normandy + NW Europe" themes... Especially for the warmer latitudes and during the summer months. There was a recent Italy event, and there are a couple more coming up. Also a big immersion Sicily event in Texas very soon. Get yourself hooked up with this, as there will be more opportunities for you if you go generic MTO, rather than just DAK alone. lemme know if you yanks want details.

Sure thing. Details on the Texas stuff sounds good.
My parents live in Texas. Perhaps I can do a two for one visit down there.
My parents buy a plane ticket for me to go visit, and then I happen to wander off for a few days to go play, then back to the house before anyone realizes I'm gone. :P

That looks like a great event, too bad I can't make it to Texas for this weekend.
I could drive. Did it before. 24 hours straight, just stopping for gas and food. But then again, I didn't want to be near a car for a week afterwards :lol: .

desertratter -

A number of 2. Panzer Division (HRS) members have DAK Impressions, myself included. We've been trying to attend one DAK event, as a group, a year.

Hilariously enough, I bought Filippov's LB uniform and boots (which are unfortunately a tad too big for my feet).
