    Looking to sharpen my skills and knowledge of bushcraft and wilderness survival tactics. I've taken basic survival classes in the past, and would like to learn more advanced skills and techniques.

    I am a certified welder, and a novice metal Smith. I am very interested in metallurgy, and different aspects of primitive and ancient metal working.

    I'm orginally from Central CA. I grew up hiking, hunting, and fishing in the Central Sierra Nevadas. I am now in the Pacific North West where me and my wife, are looking to explore new terrains. She is an RN and used to work Search and Rescue for the State Parks Department. She brought me here to this site. This forum seems like a great wealth of knowledge and resource, I look forward to learning all that I can.

    Hey there fellow Cascadian from Portland. Welcome to the boards. Seems you reputation preceeds you. 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.

    Yeah man, that's me. I'm not much of a bladesmith, I've made a couple, nothing to really brag about. I mainly did railings, residential accents, and stuff like that.

    I negligected to Invite you both to the Oregon and PNW Local Groups down in The Pit Section on the main board. I'm working on building Oregon activities, like:

    First Cascadia Regional GTG - Photos and Reports, Oregon Cascadia PNW Gathering, ArmyMacE’s view., and 1st Annual Cascadia GTG, Nevadablue’s view.

    Also the Gang from Washington have lots of fun activites, like Millersylvania get together #8 trip report. Be sure to watch for Millersylvania #9 which should be coming up in October, I hope.

    The GTG's (Get To Gethers) are family friendly and we value the participation of all.

    Welcome from Calgary, Canada. My wife is from the PNW (Snohomish), so we spend a fair amount of time down there visiting family. I haven't had a chance to explore the Cascades or Olympics nearly as much as I'd like to, but you'll have plenty to keep you busy!
