Alex won't be able to bring a gutair so that will work out great, thanks!
Ok, this will be my first year!
Just booked a spot. Not sure if I have the fam committed or not just yet.
I'm in San Antonio and would love to meet some locals that are going before all this begins.
Please send me some PMs if you're local!
Yes John, I'm the nut that's been emailing you all day!
Booked a 2nd spot just to be on the safe side.
My wife wants to know if there's porta-potties there?
Looking forward to seeing you again and meeting your buddy. Bring your atalatyl and we will toss a few darts.
No! But town is not far, 5 minute drive.
booked +1, looking forward to it again.
Spot booked!! I am 99.99999999% sure I WILL be there, but snagged my spot in case.
I very much looking forward to this event. It's been so long since I've been able to catch up with my ole bushcraft buddies. So many stories to tell and so many axes to swing!
Badgerclaw always plans such a solid fest and the camaraderie is like nothing else.
I'm going to be demonstrating spoon carving throughout the event and I'm in the works of figuring out if we can plan some mini carving courses. Maybe a one hour sessions that will be written up on a chalkboard when the fest starts. So if you've been interested in carving, now is your chance to learn the ways of the axe & knife.
Thought I'd put the word out now. I'll be on the look out for some solid carving wood. I don't think I'll be able to drive down and bring my own supply, but this may change depending on circumstances.
Some details if you have access to trees -
-Has to be green (wet/living)
-diffuse porous (birch, maple, sycamore, walnut, cherry, plum, beech, etc.) I can help a bit with ID
I wanted to teach some kuksa carving but I'd need to lug down special carving horses so it won't happen this time. But I will be bringing down some of my latest and greatest stock. I'm currently in England attending and teaching at Spoonfest with some other international instructors. So it'll be great to be back in the States to share some great stories, and technique with you all.
Glad you will be there Alex, it will be good to hang oUT again.
Can't wait to catch up and watch some coal toss!
@Bitterfists You gonna be there, bro?
I would absolutely love to. Unfortunately, I think December is loaded down with work. One of my company's clients likes opening as many stores as possible before a new year. Time will tell, just can't commit till it gets closer.
No problem man! I understand. I hope it works out for you.
Yahoo! Bought a ticket! If there are any locals that would be down to pick me up from the airport I'd be happy to provide some gas money.
Ok good to know. Not sure if that will be a deal breaker for her but I got two spots reserved and looking forward to it! Hope to meet some locals before hand if any are out there!
Will you be bringing any stringed instruments?
I really want to but it's expensive to fly with a guitar in a case.
Mandolin and a harmonica, dude! If I can make it, I'll bring guitars.
Marco said he was bringing an extra geetar.
Yeah the mando turned into charcoal, only have he bigguns now. Wish I could bring my metal dobro!
Forestree just told me he already bought his ticket.
I am super excited about this, as it will be my first gathering, and so many people I only know or read of online will be there. Can't wait to meet y'all!
We are all much more impressive in person.
Yeeeeah........I can believe that.....
Granted it is going to be in a pecan orchard, most everyone will blend in. Just hopefully the squirrels don't take this as an extra harvest.
Well, I'm a fart..., uh force to be reckoned with.
Yeah, I'm kind of a farce myself.
Over 50 people signed up so far...should be fully booked in the next couple weeks.
I'm brand new here but I am a Hill Country native and I just registered. Can't wait to do some learning. Thanks John!
Just signed up last night and am looking forward to meeting some more members! I know I had a great time at the TN meet back in Feb.
And this time I only have to drive 3 hours.. Score!
Just bought mine.
Looking forward to filling some bellies with chili and waffles. Bring cups, because thats how waffles are eaten in Hill Country.
What's the best airport to fly into? Austin?
Yep. About a 2hr drive from the Austin/Bergstrom International to San Saba.
What kind of beans in that chili? LOL
Haha! Gotta be careful talking about putting beans in chili around Texans. Might get lynched!
I like beans and catch grief about it constantly. Lol
Red and black.
My recipe is on here somewhere.
Search for "Shnick's perfect chili"
Dang dude. Been laying low awhile? Good to see you're still around.
I was at a GT at San Saba and choked down some instant oatmeal for breakfast. I went down to the fire and Shnick was making waffles for anyone who wanted one. Had to go back and get my cup. He makes good chili and also waffles.
Made With antique cast iron.
It's the only way to fry
I'm registered! I'll see you in San Saba!
I'm going to bring you some Colorado craft brews that I haven't seen outside of Colorado.
Sorry guys. Really bad news. I registered.
I'm in! Looking forward to this.
14 spots left.
Make that 13 left
I remember seeing this event last year and had just been laid off from job thinking, I wish.
Still no job, but I am going to make it happen since I am ~100 miles & 1.5 hrs. away.
I look forward to meeting peeps from here in person.
This would be my first rodeo, do we bring food, beer are there any guide lines or do I just show up naked and afraid?
Dress code is loincloths only from what I understand. Just be afraid if its too small (because bowdrills)
