I like rocks, let me just say that from the beginning. I always have, and I love the idea of making things out of them. The idea of surviving in the wild intrigues me as well. Camping with me is a hoot! I usually spend my free time making things with my hands. I can't say when the primitive bug bit me but I am addicted. I started collecting books on primitive skills and survival. That however, was not enough for me. I NEEDED to TRY these skills out. My wife is the lovely lady behind Va-Voom vintage, and she got me on blogger after she fell in love with blogging. She supports my primitive hobbies and even listens intently when I spend hours talking her ear off about flint knapping or fire making. So here I stand at the beginning of a great journey of knowledge and discovery, care to join me?
