    I will make it marked down in my calendar, for now. Turns out Blade Show is a no-go for me so at least ONE knife related event has to make it into my schedule! :D

    Hahaha! Just looked it up on a maps app... 2,700 miles is the fastest route at 39 hrs.

    I had better start saving pennies for a plane ticket if I can go. I would absolutely love to make it to one of these events!

    I added it to my calendar, with some reminders...

    Thanks,

    Jarrod

    Had a great conversation on the phone today with Dave Beck. Rumor has it, he may be attending Gosstoberfest this year. If anyone wants to meet the awesome knifemaker Dave Beck, here's your chance. No guarantees, but he said he was going to try and make it. How cool is that!

    Scott's not just a great craftsman but also a terrific guy for sure. It's really nice he's able to host a gathering like this & I'm proud to call him my friend. With that weekend open on the calendar, I just can't miss out this year. I'm sure it's going to be a great time & I'm looking forward to seeing old friends & making new ones.

    If anyone is interested in coming, I highly recommend it. This year is shaping up to be as Dan Vanlinski of Coalcracker Bushcraft says, UNBELIEVEABLE . You will hear about some exciting adventures and meet some awesome people.

    Either works. Each year there are a good number of tents, several hammocks and a tarp or two.

    Looks like we are about a month out boys and girls!

    I’m trying to get Friday off work but it’s not looking good!

    Who else is going?

    I am getting a rare chance to see relatives from Florida that week. The chance only came up a few days ago.

    Maybe next year I hope! :)

    Is there any kind of schedule for this? I work until 2 most Fridays, but wanted to see if anything would be going on during the day on Friday.

    What about facilities (water, fire, etc?)

    I just need beer and toilet paper.

    And toilet paper is optional!

    Not sure I can pull it off. But giving it serious thought. It would be a bike trip.

    There will be things scheduled for Sat. Not everybody shows up on Fri. so that's basically a set up casual day. There will be a portable toilet, there's a pump for water and a firepit.
