Maine Primitive Gathering

I participated in the Maine Primitive Gathering three weeks ago in Bowdoin Maine. This is the big event of the year for me and well worth the seven hour drive. My friend Chris and I had a great time and learned a lot. Below Bob Berg of Thunderbird Atlatl is teaching us primitive fishing techniques. Later I took an atlatl making workshop with him and came home with three finished darts, three blanks and a finished atlatl. I have had a lot of fun throwing them.

Here we are straitening our atlatl dart shafts.

I also took a debri tracking workshop with Mike Douglas of MPSS which showed me how much more dirt time I need in that department.
I got reacquainted with many old friends and made some new ones. Most special of which is Deneen B. Special things are always found in the woods.
