Hello!

Post by Smokey Radley » Mon Apr 15, 2019 1:02 pm

Hey all. I had the privilege of meeting a bunch of you at the Gathering this last weekend. I had a great time at the gathering, and look forward to learning more from this community and spending more time in Texas.
For those that I haven't met yet, I'm an avid outdoorsman, if it's outside I like to do it or want to give it a try. Except cave diving. Those guys are crazy. I also like Jethro's pie/cake.
Smokey.

Welcome to the fire Smokey. Glad you made it over.
We have casual meet ups in East Texas quite a bit. If you ever get a hankering for piecaken come on down. We post all of the dates in the Recent/Upcoming Events category.
You did an awesome job at the gathering. Again, thanks for the help.

Hi Smokey, it was nice to meet you there and get some eyes on my lashing. Done a bunch, but always just for me. Bear bags was a new subject for me and fun as well. Oh, and flint and steel. I've done ferro-rods and solar quite a bit, but it was fun seeing first hand how flint shaves steel, makes the carbon combust, which you can catch with charred material and make last long enough to ignite a tinder.

Besides the pot hooks, what camp craft projects did your classes do Sunday?

It was good to meet you as well! The two part pot hook was the only one we had time to get to Sunday.

Hi Smokey,
Was great to meet you as well out in Hill Country. The weather took some learning opportunities away but provided others. Welcome to the fire!
