weather is ok at the minute here. but will probably change in five minutes.
myslef and Donal are skipping the twelve o clock meet and are heading to get a bus to loughrea. everyone who we were hoping to get to show up for the twelve o clock is either making their own way down to Gort or has plans to show up later. also we have had some cancelations. so we are stuck without a lift. such is life. i will see everyone in crannog so. you all should have my number. any problems, just call or text.

I have my tipi in the van so we will have a place to socialise etc. out of the weather if needs be.

My pack is bulkier/ heavier than normal too but I presume I wont have to carry it for miles so I didnt bother repacking.

Well done to yourself and Donal for getting this off the ground. Good weekend had by all. Nice to put faces to names. Thanks loz for the bowdrill tuition, I might have got the hang of it by the time we meet again.

Hey Preacherman,

I opened up the smaller of the two peices of Beech you gave me, and found this inside !!

Just a very simple weedpot ( the 8 yearold was helping me !! ) - but the spalting is lovely.

Please don't burn any more !!! :D
Cheers

Loz

Hi Loz,

Nice work,

I have gone through my woodpile and have put aside a few more pieces for you. They are bigger pieces but have some cracks in them. They might be ok on the inside. I will bring them to the next meet that you are going on.

I didnt see your fleece but I'm sure that someone will have put it aside.

Hi Loz,

All quiet here allright. There might be something in the pipeline again but waiting to hear from Donal. I think he wants to organise something before the winter sets in.

we have been out a few times as a club, and this year hopefully we can get out a lot more still. look forward to seeing you out at some stage.
 
Hi all,

Just to remind you all of the second gathering I am organising on our site at Wild-Live on the 4th and 5th of April.
Just like last year, the cost is £15.- per person. This fee goes directly to the National Trust in lieu of their entrance fees.
All our tools, equipment, firewood and accomodations will be freely available to use. I will also set another group challenge for those that are interested, to help gell the group together.
Depending on interest, I would like to teach a saturday evening session of earthenware pottery making and firing at a material price of £10.- This session would last an hour + the rest of the evening to fire the pots, while you're sitting around the fire chatting. If you'd like to join, simply let me know during the day.

The site will be open from Friday evening 6PM until Sunday afternoon about 4PM.
Due to the estate gates closing, I would suggest you arrive between 8AM and 8PM.
Once you arrive, please follow the "branded" parking signs, and then the direction signs, which will lead you into the woods, directly to our course-site. Be sure to meet me as soon as you arrive, so I can note down your name and show you around.

There is plenty of room for tents but hammocks may give you a larger choice of camping spots as the landscape only has so many level spaces. You can also decide to sleep in our Yurt, which can handle about 5 or 6 people sleeping.
We also have two roomy permanent primitive structures on our site, which can hold about 3 people each. Of course, they will be used on a first come first serve basis. As I am building a larger teaching structure, there may be more room in it, but it looks likely that it will not be finished on time for the gathering.

Just so I can get a bit of an idea of numbers attending, I would really appreciate it if you would drop me a short e-mail at info@wild-live.org containing your expected day of arrival and the names of people you are thinking of bringing with you.

As this gathering is not only about getting together with like-minded people and having great "craic" but also about sharing knowledge, I would invite anyone who would really like to share a particular skill in a more organised manner to send me an e-mail. I will then plan it in on the informal "program" so that people wishing to learn from your knowledge can ensure they are present at the right time.

Last autumn's gathering was a great success with so much sharing and friendship during the weekend, I can only expect it to be even better this time around!

Hoping to see you all there,

Anthonio
