    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.

    Welcome from the Inland Empire. The youtube vids I've seen make that Whitlox Forge look really well thought out.

    Thanks for all the greetings! I was happily surprised that four of the members that said hello are from my state (two from Eastern Washington and two from Western Washington).

    I see there's a trading area, a vendors area, and a skills area (though I didn't see a specific area for blacksmithing). How do most of you guys use this site?

    I usually just troll the list of recent posts, click on the threads threads that seem interesting, learn what I can, contribute what I can, whether I contribute brevity, or usefully is a toss-up.
