    I'm at Binegar and really a camper rather than a bushcrafter, and will struggle to find any time for this, but would still be interested in trying to join in.

    Hi I am based in Taunton. I would definately like to be part of a zummerzet and avon (and anywhere else that can get to us) club. I hope you get this thing off the ground.

    Default North East Somerset

    (Lazy - Just copied this from another thread I subscribed to)

    Hi everyone. I'm in North East Somerset (was Avon) on the edge of Radstock. Great walks through the Wellow and Cam valleys. There are some interesting batches (slag heaps) which have been planted up with trees (some quite established now) so it's a great place for bimbles and dog walks through the woods, farmland and rough fields. The wildlife is fantastic too. I'm part of the "Owl & Raptor" sub-group of the local wildlife group.

    The canoeing round here is good too: The Frome, Avon and Kennet & Avon Canal are near by. I am also a 20 minute drive from the Mendips where I do quite a bit of walking.

    I'll be up for any meets, canoeing or workshops in the South West. If thers is anything interesting happening, I'm happy to help with lift sharing with my pickup truck. AKA "The Green Goddess".

    Look forward to it..............hc
    Just add wheat, barley, hops and a boat.

    I'd say the woods i have access to is about 6 acres... bout 100 metres wide but a good 600 - 800 metres long. Decent enough size for a few of us...

    okies bassworx, if you want it...

    i've mentioned to some that i am away for the remainder of this week through the weekend.. the weekend after is valentines so i guess we should miss that off the calendar for fear of a slow painful death at the hands of our SWMBO......

    can i propose a pub based meet so we can check each other out a little before committing ourself to spending nights outdoors with potential axe wielding psychopaths and make sure we are all just axe wielding!!!!

    as its pretty central zummerzet, can i propose that we have an initial meet for a beer and a pie (if they do them? if not, crisps!) at:

    George Hotel and Pilgrims' Inn at Glastonbury 8pm friday 19th Feb

    please add name to list if coming....
