Hi all, my name is Joe, Im in my early 30s and have been living in Devon since Jan 2020. I currently work as a landscape gardener, but am the Jack of all trades. I'm friendly and easy to get along with and enjoy socialising with people of all ages.

I've come down to Devon from Manchester simply to be closer to nature and away from the city.

I'm really keen to get out exploring, camping and learning some new skills. I would love to learn more about foraging, Bushcraft, survival, and all things to do woth the outdoors. I have a bushcrafrt course booked for August, followed by a foraging course in October, but that seems ages away......
My knowledge in bushcraft is basic, but i'm passionate about it all anyway, and have been living it up since I was old enough to pinch my dads hammer and nails and make dens/camp out with friends. I tested myself often with wild camping whilst travelling abroad for 3 years

Since coming to Devon I don't have many friends or contacts other than my GF, who I live with.

I would be very keen to meet up with people in the surrounding area, who are also Interested in Bush craft, wild camping, and the outdoors, and might be willing to share some company, skills, in exchange for good friendly company, enthusiasm and love of the outdoors.

Summer is round the corner and I want to get off the couch and out and about living. It would be much better with company than going alone.
Please get in touch if you feel the same.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Joe

Hey thanks for the message.

I'm living in Tiverton. It seems we might not be that far away from each other.

What do you like to get up to in your free time ?

Do you have much experience with bushcraft?

Joe we are almost next door neighbours!
I'm about 14 miles away from you.
I'd say on the bushcraft front I can hold my own, definatly not a beginner, though not an expert as there is always more to learn.
I do a lot of foraging, and prefer a hammock nowadays. (I'm no spring chicken like you!)
If you'd like to meet up and have a chat about the area and where to go/what to do, id be more than happy. Pm me with your mobile number, and we can maybe arrange to meet up and have a chat.. I could point you to some great walks and camping places that don't cost a fortune, allow fires etc.
If you are into motorbikes, I am too,. and I also like growing veg,

Ironically, you should be able to send a private message now. Members have to make five posts and have them approved by a moderator before they can initiate conversations via private message. They can receive and reply right from the start, but they cannot start the ball rolling.

Just hover mouse pointer over the name of the person and "Start Conversation"
