    Default Hi from the North East, way north, way east

    Hi

    I'm wayne from Newfoundland Canada.

    I joined this forum awhile ago but i never did really use the forum much, but now I have been getting more into wilderness survival and bushcraft, I feel that I should re introduce myself.

    I spend most of my time canoeing or kayaking the backcountry and have a huge fascination with improving my bushcraft skills. I try to take a minimalist approach whenever I head out into the bush. I am no means a pro, and look forward to getting any advice or tips from this forum.

    Hey Hardwater. Glad to have you here. They allow you to have guns up there?


    I remember those guys from Newfoundland on TV that went out and shot icebergs for the ice and collected it. Got a BIG price as this water is the purest water there is. They called these icebergs, "bergies". They were a real pair. One day they traveled 100 miles out to a huge iceberg but forgot the ammo. What a bunch they were. You don't talk like them do you?

    Welcome from way west and way north.
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    Him-"Whats the best knife for survival?"
    Me-"the one that's in your pocket."
    Him-"I don't have one in my pocket."
    Me-"Exactly."

    Makes me jealous, that buffer the rock has from the mainland. I often wonder if they still close off the main street to traffic on the weekends in St. John's.
