    Dang I missed this month's meet . Serves me right for not checking back in often enough . So far I've managed to get back into the woods once since Ratwagen and Mathew6767 organized their meet up . View attachment 84447 View attachment 84448
    Since then I modified the trailer because of things I learned from that trip. View attachment 84449 Since the mods I haven't been able to get back out . Life seems to get in the way . Maybe next month I'll be able to make the second Sat of the month . Is the location set yet ?

    I'm not even sure if anyone's actually made it out to one at all yet. I'm at a new job with ADT now. Working Saturdays but I'm hoping after I get settled in it I can get a Saturday and month scheduled off.

    I hope to make it out soon too. My wife works at Lake Dardanelle State Park and is probably going to have to work most Saturdays during the summer so I would have to get my folks to watch my 2 year old.

    It is a bit more difficult to bring young'uns that young but it is doable . Trick is to do it when the weather isn't too extreme so that they are comfortable and you have to be willing to keep them close .

    I want to get him started early, so I may try to bring him out sometime if it's not too far off the beaten path.

    I could be wrong but I think the place S.A.K. suggested is almost a drive up and camp situation .
    I think SAK suggested the 2nd sat of each month . Does anyone know if that is still standing ?

    I don't think it's been changed. You could drive most of the way to the Site and walk about a quarter mile in, or take a quad to it.
    I haven't been able to come out as I'm working Monday thru Saturday now.

    Hey guys I'm new to bushcraft u.s.a. but I live in Winslow and would like to try and get out and meet up if y'all are still having y'all get togethers. If so could y'all let me know where. I've read some of y'all post and if y'all are looking for places or trying different ones everytime y'all may look into devils den state park n the is national Forrest all around it that you can camp on an it would be free and have fire as long as there are no burn bans.i also have some property just off 540 that the group would be welcome to camp and have there meets on. It has a creek that runs through but no fish but water.

    Welcome, Boston mtns! Have you introduced yourself in the main welcome forum yet?
    Thank you for your suggestions. I hiked Devils Den alot when I was younger. I even spelunked it a bit going through the various cracks and crevases that tourists pass by. Though I'm not as spry as I once was, I think I would like to take my boys there this summer. I had kinda forgot about it, so thank you.

    That's cool. If y'all happen to have a get together or a camping trip I'd like to get out and meet some of y'all. I found the spot and did the intro forum so thanks for the help. I'm new at the computer stuff, I didn't even know how to turn one on till three years ago so I've far from figured this all out. I don't know even how to put a picture up on my profile or any pics at all but I'll get it. So SAK what test are you doing?

    Times* I meant the times, meaning that the times are tough on everyone right now. I'm using what has to be one of the dumbest smart phones when it comes to typing.

    So are any of the BCUSA people getting together anywhere around nwa? I sure would like to do something and meet some of the people around here that's into the same stuff. I know it's been hot out and doing overnight trips would be a lot better when its cooler but the heat hasn't stopped me completely lol.

    I am recovering from an emergency appendectomy after my appendix burst, so I am out of the game for the rest of the summer.

    I've unfortunately just moved to Oklahoma. I'm only 8 minutes west of Lincoln, Arkansas though so I'm still near NWA.

    I would be interested in traveling from Central OKLA for this. We have a group here in OKLA but they don’t meet that often. Some of the guys are very into bushcraft and some are more into camping which is fine but I would like to increase my skill level.
    WOuld you guys welcome an Okie amongst you?

    Yeah. Same for thw Oklahoma bushcraft group. but all we need are for 5 people to make a group. and it will be better if everyone is fairly serious about bushcraft which you might get with a smaller group. what area of Northwest Arkansas are you thinking about I will Google the mileage

    I am in Bentonville.

    Hobbs Estate State Park is an excellent place to meet.

    The Pigeon Roost Trail has primitive camping at the end of a 4 mile hike. I have hiked it a couple of times and I really like it.

    Sounds like a cool thing. I would love to meet sometime, I'm only 14 so I have no way to get there other than parents. I'm sure my dad would think this is awesome.

    When is the next meeting?
