Hey Russ.. welcome :) This group isn't as active as I had hoped, but I'm here, anyway lol I'm just outside of the Hinton area, myself. I can't teach a whole lot, but I agree that we should be networking. It will never hurt if the situation arises.
Hi all, My wife and I are from Cartwright Oklahoma. I hope this is an active group. We are looking to learn some and hopefully help some. We are interested in meeting and possibly creating a network that could possibly be used in a bug out situation.
This is an event that is not too far away. Great skills, food and people.
MAPS (Mid Atlantic Primitive Skills) is one of the sponsors, I will be teaching there.
From the MAPS coordinator:
I wish to make you aware of an awesome opportunity to learn new skills and surround yourself with truly fantastic instructors.
