    I'm hoping to stop by for a visit on Saturday.
    I know @ugar-6 will be there as he will probably be teaching a class or two.

    It looks like I can be there on Friday at around 6pm (possibly earlier) and leave on Sunday at about 2pm. That would at least leave me with all day Saturday.

    Well, if Sassy The Goat is going to be there...

    If anyone can bring an extra folding chair that I can use, it would be much appreciated.

    Goats should catch on as pets. Think about it: They don't bark or bite and they practically feed themselves. It just takes one celebrity in L.A. to walk around with a mini goat and you will have a nation sweeping trend.

    I don't see the classes planned but I hope they have some good ones. Once I make a bow drill, I would be happy to show anyone who wants to learn fire by friction.

    Anyone else going?

    I saw the tentative, very close to set, class schedule yesterday. It should be up probably Monday. It's going to be awesome and some notable names there teaching as well. We're heading over in a few minutes for a work day to get some stuff ready. @MrFixIt , you want to stop by?

    It was really nice there. Cassey and Jess and eveyone I met there are good folk. They had cooked up some deer tenderloin shot twelve hours earlier. Ugar brough a hawk and axe for throwing and gave me a lesson at the axe targets. In the end I could stick it reliable with one rotation at about twelve paces away. He throws a double bit as well. They have plenty of fire pits. We spread hay out on one area and cleaned up another. Lots of cut grass and not many bugs. I didn't see any ants. They mentioned that some celebrity will there; A Bushcraft Goat. I wonder who. The nearby city of Athens is nice too.

    Thanks for the kind words. It was great meeting you. I was a little bit grouchy that day due to some jacktard hitting and running my car and my back hurting so bad, separate issues.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my brief time there yesterday afternoon.
    Saw @ugar-6 again (been way to long my brother), met @Bushcraft-kelso, his lovely wife and Sassy!
    @EternalLove and I walked, talked, oohed and aahed over quite a few of the vendors offerings and generally solved the worlds problems.
    Also met youtuber “Blackie”.
    I wish I could have spent more time there.
    Oh, Phil, did you go back and buy that sweet ax?

    Spencer.

    It was great meeting you as well. Thanks again for the Mora Tribe patch. Kelso helped (actually setup my tent for me) while I looked for him. I setup a small fire (with Ugalrs help) in front of it and slept with my tent door open to look at it. Kelso and his wife are really nice. They shared some fajitas with me for dinner

    Of course Sassy stole the show. She was well behaved and well loved by her family.

    And yes. At the last moment I could not resist getting going back for an axe. I found one that I liked I liked even more. These pictures do not do it justice. I'll see if I can take better pictures later. IMAG0517.jpg IMAG0518.jpg

    Y'all the pleasure was all mine. I had a wonderful time as well as my wife. I'm willing to bet anything that Sassy enjoyed herself too! While I didn't get to spend as much time with everyone as I would have liked to. I did enjoy the time spent. @ugar-6 we need to try to set something up where ur not working so hard my good brawdy! @MrFixIt awesome time brawdy! Hope you had a good time hanging with ole Sassy and myself. We will do it again! @EternalLove Spence! Awesome score on the axe braw! You know I had to cook something on the fire!

    IMG_5609.JPG IMG_5581.JPG IMG_5617.JPG IMG_5748.JPG @EternalLove , so glad you could make it and that you had a good time. Really glad you got that axe from Jason, he does an amazing job restoring those. You definitely have to come back! @Bushcraft-kelso , same goes to you as well, especially one of the smaller camp functions so that we can really sit down and enjoy the fellowship. You have a lovely and sweet wife and a wonderful fur child. She was so cool!!! @MrFixIt , so honored you FINALLY made it out, you're coming back no question. You had too many buddies out there that you walked right by without talking to. LOL. Here's a couple of pics and I'll try to put more up after I figure out which way is up in a few days. For now...EXHAUSTED!!! Btw, it ain't a proper campout unless you have a 6lb canon shooting a 9oz charge. 'Merica!

    @EternalLove...sorry Spencer, I have no idea where "Phil" came from...:oops:
    I remember seeing that ax on the table, looks like you got a good one!

    @Bushcraft-kelso Yes, we definitely need to get together. I was surprised there were so many people there!

    @ugar-6 I was standing near @Joezilla 's demonstration and had no idea...:mad:
    The honor was all mine friend!
