    Hey guys and gals!

    I surely did miss this community.

    My name is Steven and I’m an old member who lost his way for a bit. Now that life is back on track, I’m back in the woods and have a burning desire to learn new skills. What better place than here!!

    I was fortunate enough to get a really sweet job in Colorado on a very large ranch. There are thousands of acres to roam and I’m the only one who explores it. I’ve settled into my new lifestyle and spend the majority of days in the wilderness now.

    Moving from the southern states to the Rocky Mountains has been a crazy learning experience. So many things that kill here... lion, bear, SNOW!, cliffs, etc. I’m currently learning the new terrain and materials it has to offer. I’ve got my mountain legs under me now and can cover some good distance at this elevation, which is leading to me finding some really cool things. It’s a different world up here.

    It’s good to see a lot of the old school members are still here sharing their knowledge with us greenhorns.

    This forum holds a special place in my heart due to the great members here and I’m glad to be back. I hope to contribute in every way I can.

    -Steven Long
