Born and raised in rainy Washington State. Love it here. Love the mountains and the saltwater and the foothills. I've been into bushcraft since I was in scouts as a kid. Over the last few years I've been learning more and about building primitive shelters, starting fires in new ways, hunting, etc. As I get older, I'm realizing that it's time being out in the woods that I really crave. I'm just about to start learning blacksmithing too. I'm getting a Whitlox forge system set up over the next few weeks. My goal is to eventually make a serviceable axe so I thought I'd join this forum and share what I know and pick people's brains about stuff I don't.
