    My name is Antonia and I'm a Registered Nurse in the PNW. I am also an EMT and used to be a wilderness EMT on a technical SAR team. I mostly enjoy bushcraft and survivalism and like to combine my crochet and knitting skills to whittle hooks and needles and make things with natural plant fibers if needed.

    I am married to the most wonderful man who is also on these forums. He is a blacksmith and ironworker. We joined because we want to continue our education and experience in survival, bushcraft, and prepping both as a hobby and a lifestyle.

    Interestingly, the region of Eastern WA and North Idaho is also called the Inland Empire, or sometimes the Inland Northwest, if including a portion of Western Montana. I did not realize there was a region of California with the same moniker.

    Oh that's funny! My mistake. Yes, the Inland Empire of California is a mostly awful place so I'm happy for you that you aren't living there. I'm not from there originally. I'm originally from Northern California where it is still considered part of the PNW.

    I definitely shall sometime. I prefer crochet but I know how to knit as well. For me crocheting is faster and I know how to mimic knitting with crochet.

    Hey there fellow Cascadian from Portland. Welcome to the boards. Proud to have you walk in the company we share. Glad you found us and hoping some day our paths will cross and we can share a cup of coffee around bright yellow flame. If you haven't already, check out the BushClass section.
