I was at Mojam in 2006 I think...  Bought a bow blank from Gary Davis and some staves from other vendors..  Made a few osage bows that are still shooting. Spent alot of time lately over at POA building glass bows, but I'm starting to get the primative itch again..

I grew up in northern Greenville County in South Carolina, and currently live in Pickens County South Carolina. Several branches of my family tree were among the first European pioneers to settle in this area way back in the 18th Century.

I'm only about 30 miles south of PatB.

I'm a California native, now living in Southeastern Idaho. I've posted to this thread before, and I've had the good fortune of meeting someone from this site in every place I've lived in.  :)
Always letting people know where I am for that reason.
Best Regards,

Andrew

Good to hear, DesertDisciple!
I'm in Pocatello. Spent a few years in Fresno and Santa Barbara, but ended up back in Idaho anyway. I know there's at least one other here in Poky, because somebody else keeps placing a hold on TBB I-IV at the local library... I'm getting really curious about it... :)

Northern Colorado, Loveland to be exact.  Came this way from Missouri and Kansas courtesy of the army. Grew up in St. Louis, migrated to Columbia, St Joseph, Kansas City, then here.
