    My wife and I just relocated to NH in June and we're finally settled into a normal routine so now is a good time for me to get back into the woods. I've been on a couple of solo hikes, but not much else since it's been so damned hot.

    I'm just south of Plymouth, NH so if you're in the central part of the state and would like to meetup for some dirt time let me know. We can hike, practice some bushcraft skills, etc. Completely open to any ideas. I've been on this edible plants kick lately and trying to learn more about that at the moment. Either way, just looking to meet some people in this area and pick your brains on places to hike & camp. Prior to moving here I set up several of our Central FL bushcraft meetups. I'm all about getting people together and sharing knowledge.

    If you're interested, feel free to reply to this thread. Who knows, maybe we can get a group of people together.

    Glad to see that you have settled in to the new area and getting to head out to the woods. I think that it will start to cool off for you there quicker than it will here. It has been a brutal summer back in FL also. Take care my friend and enjoy the new area!

    Welcome! You are in a good area. I’m northern Rockingham county, about an hour and a half away. I’m tied up for the next few weekends but after Labor Day I expect to be freer.

    Regarding wild edibles, the New Hampshire Outdoor learning center in Wolfboro offers some upcoming classes in September on mushrooms. I have taken a few classes there, nice folks.

    Again, welcome. I hope we are able to meet up at some point.

    Jim

    Thanks for responding. This thread is gaining some interest so hopefully we'll be able to get a few of us together in the next month or so.

    Welcome to NH! I'm in the south east area. There's lots of trails and State Forest to go play in and a surprising number of lakes.

    @VtBlackDog @Mountain Mel @mainewoods @jimmyt @MOGSTER

    Well, you guys are following and/or replied to this thread so I'll assume you're interested in a meet up. My weekends in Sept are mostly booked, but October is wide open.

    If you're interested in meeting up in October, shoot me a PM. Let me know your general location or town, if you're interested in a 1 day meet up or an overnighter, and what weekend(s) work for you. Once I hear back from a few of you I can try to align a central location. That way no one is stuck driving too far.

    If anyone new to this thread is reading this post and is interested please send me a PM.

    I didn't have anything specifically planned. Really just an informal meetup to connect with some fellow bushcrafters since I'm new to NH. If you're thinking about organizing an overnighter around that time please feel free to do so. I'm always game for woods time.

    It did. El Duderino and I met up at the Franklin Falls Dam. We took a nice hike, built a fire, had lunch and some great conversation.
