    Greetings All,
    Been in Tucson 24 years. I do a little trail biking, a little hunting, a little primitive skills, a little bushcraft, a little camping. Prior to that I was very active in blackpowder reenacting in the northeast (PA, NJ, NY, MD, WV). Anyone else within the Oracle/Tucson/Benson triangle?

    Welcome. I'd say a little of "this" outdoors and "that" outdoors represents most of us here.

    Thanks for all the great welcomes here!

    I've taken my daughter up into the Santa Catalina mountains a couple times now since just before joining the forum. She's 8 and has really taken to hiking. We've been practicing gear load-ins and -outs, safe gear handling, foot care, basic directions, plus just getting out there and doing it. After watching some videos videos with me on youtube she's really biting me to do an overnight.

    On the subject of bushcrafters in my local (1,000 sq mi-ish) area, I'm not seeing any kind of response. 'Operator' is a commonplace style of dress here in Arizona, but now that I'm paying more attention I'm seeing bushcraft rigs walking by in the state and national forests here. Everyone seems on the furtive side. Maybe there's just a lot of solos out there doing the reading and the doing without a lot of online socializing?
