The BushcraftUSA forum is known for having meet ups all over the country. I missed the local one in April due to a nasty cold. I made up for it by traveling into Illinois to a meet on a forum members farm. It was an excellent weekend in every way. The company was good and the weather was warm with no rain at all. There was plenty activities to do from forging iron flint strikers and cooking irons to land navigation and leather work. It was well planned and a great time.
