    I'd love to make it but I have to teach class at 4:30 and 5:30pm. Maybe next time! I'd also like to offer up my gym as a possible meeting point if there's inclement weather. We're located at 1950 S. Quebec Denver.

    This sounds awesome. My wife and I will be there. We're really excited!

    Thanks for the feedback, Jill. I will most likely have a wild edibles/wildflower walk before flint-knapping. Also, I am looking to plan a fire-by-friction class for the near future. As far as planning a skills trip, I still need to scout some areas for accessible roads not affected by the recent flood, but plans are in the works!

    Hey Andrew, I really enjoyed the flint knapping class on Tue, Sept 24. You have a wealth of knowledge and are able to impart that well!
    I believe you were asking for feedback on what our future interests are. I personally would like to learn more about cordage and wild edibles, etc.... Hope to see the group again soon. :) Jill
