Anyone on here in the Escambia county area?
where about is that ?
I'm in Pensacola. What city are you living in?
Hello, I'm in Baldwin County. I've been exploring the Blackwater River State Forest of late. Nice area.
It's about a 10 hour drive from you. The western far tip of the panhandle.
Ya I live about 35 min from the southern portion of blackwater. If you are ever looking for an excuse to get out for a day let me know.
I will, DayDreamer. I will send you a PM next week and we can plan a day of bushcrafting.
Born there. Haven't been back in many decades (Navy family)
I live in East Hill Pensacola
Me too. Well, I'm on the east side of the bayou in East Pensacola Heights, but close enough. Grab a beer some time? Maybe hit the 12 ave speak easy? Too cool.
I'm in south Santa Rosa county. I spend most of my woods time in Blackwater, but know a few spots closer to me on Eglin AFB reservation. Below is a link to getting a reservation pass, if anyone is interested. The Florida Trail goes thru parts of the reservation, there are some neat spots out there for sure.
Hey guys, I'm in the pensacola area as well. Currently buying some land a little north of here in cantonment for a bushcrafter retreat/ small homested. If any of you want to get over her for some beer, let me know
I like the Cantonment area, I've had some good times fishing the Escambia River and camping in the Escambia WMA. My oldest sister lived in Cantonment for years til she moved in with my Mom to take care of her. I go to the shooting range up there pretty often, Escambia River Gun Club. Happy for you getting a piece of land up there. It's great having a place of your own to get away. I have a little spot on a small spring fed lake in East Milton (Nichols Lake) but its getting built up around there now and turning into a neighborhood. Was surrounded by timberland and they sold to builders, and so it goes...
Venice south west Florida but always looking for a new place to play in the dirt
I'm in Pace (outside Pensacola). We do some bushcrafting up by the fisheries at Blackwater. I have three buddies that join me if anyone is ever interested in meeting up.
PM me bro, I actually live in Pace. Pensacola is just what everyone knows lol
good to see some chatter here. I'm in Gainesville, and boy it's a long drive over to Pensacola.
Yea, 9 or 10 hrs for me
In Pensacola too, near cantontment.
I'm about an hour away from Pensacola
I'm from Navarre, but currently in Tuscaloosa for school. Hey, what do y'all think about organizing a meetup this summer? I won't be back home until May, but I'll be itching to get out in the woods as soon as I leave my precious Alabama woodlands.
Gulf Breeze checking in.
Looks like a few more locals! Fantastic. We just did the red rock trail last weekend. Maybe before it gets too hot we could get something together.
That would be great. I would need enough notice to see if I would be off from work.
Any place along the trail to camp? It'd be really cool to do an overnighter with y'all!
Anyone interested in a meetup soon? Maybe an overnighter somewhere along Blackwater? I don't know of any great places, but if anyone does know of a good spot, I think it would be a blast.
I'm in SE Alabama, but wife's family is in Cantonment, and we're usually there once a month.
I got some time off from work. who is still down?
I have this coming Friday (7/8/16) off, anyone want to get in a woods day/night?? I haven't been out in the sticks since I move back to Florida in May and I'm feeling the itch. I'm going somewhere eve nif I've gotta go alone, but if anyone knows of a good spot and wants to meet up, I'll be there!
Posted a thread in the Event subforum in case any FL folks don't check the Local subforum!
I'm in Okaloosa County over by Rocky Bayou State Park. I try to go out once a month, usually solo since I can't seem to find others interested in getting out in the woods. Ping me, if you want to meet up.
I'd be down, I've got 4 more weeks left in town!

i'm in south alabama, about 90 miles from blackwater; daughter and her family in pensacola; and i'm retired. i have camped with grey mouse and bosco. two sharp fellows right there ...
I can't meet up this weekend...I have a race in central Florida on Saturday. The other weekends I should be free for a meetup, if anyone is up for it. Right now it's about as hot and humid as it gets, so an overnight might suck, but I'd be up for anything just let me know. Maybe an early morning or late evening meetup somewhere just to see who's in the area...whatever. Thoughts?
Anybody around for an impromptu meetup on Aug 27th or 28th? Probably too hot for an overnighter but a morning or evening meet and greet would be cool. Maybe a burger burn at Rocky Bayou State Park. Bring some cool stuff to show off or trade, someone can teach me how to start a fire with a hand drill I'm up for anything. If there's a more convenient location, I'd be cool with that too.
