Just some more info:
-admission fee of 2 euro
-workshops are free of charge, except "groundoven"
-For that workshop i have to ask to give a contribution, depending on how many are willing to do this one.
-More info on the site itself after 31th of January
-Definite list of workshops + schedule: Definitely before 30th of February
I got, not counting the people on this board who'd said they'd come, about 25 other people coming. So I guess we should be abled to reach my 50+ attenders goal
Good idea. Are absolute beginners such as myself welcome ?
They certainly are!
Is this gathering still happening?
I hope so....
I'll probably make it. I'll take a tent. far easier than a tarp in this case.
I'll take a few knives with me. Will firelighting be included? I'd like to learn fire by friction. I only got it to work once.
Has anybody been to this site before or recently for a recce?
Is it ok for hammocks and tarps? Is it better to bring a tent? Is there any fresh water on site?
You can put up your tarps and hammocks, as i probably will too, and there will be a water container on site.
Or for the real hard*sses: There is a river nearby from which you COULD gather water.
Nice green website
Is anyone going from or through Brussels? I don't drive and I'm just wondering, before I start thinking of cycling or train/bus and walking.
4-5 april is coming ever so close; so please send me an e-mùail with what kind of workshop you guys want to do.
For "groundoven" you NEED to subscribe, and pay an extra fee: I have to know how much pieces of meat and veg I have to buy.
So: everybody who wants to come: enlist and send me an email at email@example.com
Easiest by public transport is taking the train to Luik/Liège Guillemins and from there take the bus Liège-Athus to Cheras aux Houffalize. From there on it will be marked by red arrows. But there are only like 3 busses a day; one around 8AM, the next around 1 PM and the last one around 6 PM.
I'll post a more detailed schedule on my site shortly.
Thanks for the info Bart. I love travelling, but I hate destinations
I might pass by Brussels and be able to give you a lift.
Have to check with my trip schedule and stuff.
Just got back out of Sweden (Winter Weiss with Nordic Bushcraft & Bearclaw): SUPERB but still busy taking care of gear and catching up on emails and stuff.
PM me for a ride and we might sort things out.
Thanks Johan, but it's no longer sure that I will be going, I may have to go the UK - family stuff. So I can't commit myself. If I go, I'll go under my own steam. If I don't see you there - have a great weekend
