    IMG_20190806_080558 (1).jpg So, I had a starter kit up for sale and no one wanted it. So what the heck. I'll just have to give the sucker away.

    If you know someone you want to get started in Bushcraft here's your chance to get them something to start with.

    Just say I'm in and who would get this kit. Winner chosen by random number generator. I'll pay shipping. Lower 48 only. A
    there is sharps(very) involved so 18 or older.
    I'll run this until August 25th at 4pm EST.

    I'd like to enter for my neighbor, Roger. He's asked my several times about the website and really wants to bring his son into the fold. I think the kit would really help him out and give him some confidence. I'll buy him and I both Supporter memberships if I win. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’m in for @Outdoor Dauber ’s daughter. I’m always encouraging my own daughter to get out with me, and having some kit of her own has always helped. My girl is taken care of, but I would love to see another young girl get out more with her Dad.

    Finally another gaw I can enter regardless of my location.
    Since @Outdoor Dauber has been the only one to say that magic word (daughter) I also am in for him, unless @basher1981 comes back with more info than just "kids" if there is a daughter in the mix, then I'll switch my my support to him/her.
    The bc family needs girls!

    I’m in! I’m starting to gather stuff for my kids. I started taking them camping when the older set of twins was 3. That involved pee in the tent... but we’re past that now and it’s time to start building skills!

    Awesome GAW, @DirtmanDave! I am in the same boat, looking to give away some stuff I don't use so I don't need in but I wanted to thank you for your generosity. It's tough to get started on a tight budget and it's fun to 'give back', too.:dblthumb:

    She didn’t know how to open the tent. Dear ol’ dad forgot the tiny potty, and she didn’t want to wake me. I won’t ever forget the potty again!!!!

    Hey, I'm going to run a second surprise GAW to whoever guessed the number generated. At 4pm I'll generate the number and let a trusted member know what it is. By 9pm whoever guessed close to that number will get a second GAW. Sound good?
