    Might be interested.

    Would be nice to have a meet someplace we could do overnight.

    2 or 3 times a year keep your eyes open for a New England Field Day post in the new england group. I usually make it to every other one good group with some knowledgeable people willing to share info. If you have any special skills you want to share you can even lead a session. They have every thing from wood carving to first aid (not in the same meet) and usually a good batch of food.

    as in old style flint and steel I have a striker or what I think a striker should be that I forged I have never used one so I hope I did it right other than being a tad large.
