    Hey folks!

    I’ve just joined in from Providence area. I have been out in the woods on Dirtbike’s and hiking and camping whenever I can. I’m sure that many people on here see Joe R. and get pretty amped up but in all honesty, I am one of those guys. I have always thought about what survival looks like from an over abundant standpoint and always wondered what the bare necessities would be. Hoping to learn a lot from this community and definitely willing to put in the time.

    Main goal for me would be getting a good pack together that I could bring on Dirtbike or on foot that would set me up for a 1-3 night outing.

    Have read shelters shacks and shanties and will be attempting some of the entry level builds over the next few weeks/months.

    Hope for good interactions with some good people on here.

    A sincere welcome from Northern Rhode Island! This is still a great state to bushcraft in even with Providence as your hub. Not a lot of places you can legally overnight in the wild, but tons of spots for harmless stealth camping. And some great spots for canoe camping if you ever want to try a different mode of transportation.

    But wait! Did I just count FOUR Rhode Islanders in the same thread??!!??!

    Its time for a Little Rhodie buschcraft meetup!

    Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    Very happy to hear of all the locals on here. I would love to get together. I’m not great at navigating the forum quite yet, but I’ll follow up on the links RI Chevy posted and try to stay up to date on here.

    At work now will check back in a few hours.
