Hi!
Goettingen, Germany calling!
A British expat who's been here for 33 years!
My friends say that I have become very " Deutsch ", but I don't believe them!
I'm just a grumpy old english fart!
Cheers!

I'm in Black River, next to Fort Drum.  I'm on another sunny vacation to the "Crossroads of the Old World" ie: Afghanistan, but you could look me up next fall.

Currently outside Boston- Bedford, MA... Would love to be able to meet up with anyone within driving distance to trade ideas, learn, and build bows!

If I ever get out to see the Bedford Whaling Museum I will bring all my bowmaking crap with me as well as an extra stave, Jeremiah

Hey Mitch, welcome!!  If I am not mistaken, I think you are not too far from jackcrafty.  Hes a pretty good guy and very knowlegeable.

JW be nice to have ya- let me know if you ever make it this way.

Fishfinder, I'll have to find a place to camp down in your area once the weather gets nice and we can spend a weekend working on some bows! I'll send you a PM so I don't forget the contact.
