    Howdy y'all, I have been amazed at the amount of information that is available here. I stumbled upon this site looking for leather crafting ideas. i have a fascination with the outdoors and bushcraft. A little background information on myself. I am a 29 year old hydraulic mechanic that lives in Bella Vista, Ar. I spent my preteens in Bella Vista, AR and was in the woods all of the time camping and exploring. We moved to the suburbs when I was 13 and I always missed the woods and when it came time to buy my first house 14 years later, I knew Bella Vista would be home. I have about a half mile stretch off woods right out my backdoor that i spend just about once a week in. I'm in the process of clearing brush and debris to make a trail with different camp sites to enjoy with friends and family. I look forward to bushclass and sharpening up on some survival skills. Thank-you for providing such a wonderful tool

    Hey there from Cascadia! Welcome and glad you found us. Awhile back my mother-in-law and her last husband owned a home and lived in Bella Vista for about ten years. Looked like an nice place to live with the lake and woods. Before she passed, she spoke highly of it.

    Welcome. You will find lots of good people and info here. AR is a great place to be out in nature. I grew up in the Hot Springs area and miss it a lot. Been in the swamps way too long. Go HOGS!
