    We're about four months out now from the 2018 4th Annual Puckerbrush Primitive Gathering, to be held July 20-22 in Columbia, Maine, so those who plan on travelling should have ample time to make plans. Full event information here... http://prfgca.org/?page_id=563, or feel free to PM me with any inquiries. Last year's event was a real turning point, we're growing, with more to offer than ever. This is a great opportunity to meet like minded folks, learn and share skills, and just have a really fun weekend outdoors in rural downeast Maine. Here's the trip report from last year's event... https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/2017-puckerbrush-primitive-gathering.202090/ . A bunch of folks from the forum were there, and we really hope to see more this year.

    Great slide show @x39. Looking forward to being there for all 3 days this year. I'm collecting birch bark to bring to make tar, have a couple pack baskets full so far.

    I also have a good supply of Chaga to bring to share, found three more chunks last week but need to find my tree steps as they are 12'-15' up.

    All the Chaga I have found in the past has been waist to head height on the tree and usually caused by damage from logging operations.

    Wish they allowed dogs
    I have been looking for a trip I could bring them with me.
    They are real bushcrafty too. German shepard is great at herding things like kids and keeping them out of trouble.
    Husky who just loves everyone........like a hippy LOL

    I know it is a primitive gathering but would it be ok to bring some HAM radio stuff as well?

    I don't really think that would fit in with the scheme of things. The tone is more primitive/traditional skills and bushcraft rather than prepping. I hope you'll come just the same.
