I'm across the Hudson and a bit North in Dutchess County. I'm guessing about an hour away, maybe a bit less.

I'm 1.5 hours away.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Thats like 20 minutes from me. Actually I share a forge with Geoff, but I am not at college.

You will be 90 miles from me, too.

Also, you will be right near Ashokan Center, which is where one of the more enjoyable bladesmith gatherings happens each year (supposedly, it is the only one I have ever been to). Next year's them is SWORDS AND SWORDMAKING (AND PROBABLY SOME SWORDPLAY, TOO).

 

Hope to meet you soon.

Hogan - where are you, if you don't mind? You must be close to me, also.

 

There had been some potential of a gathering of us sorts in CT near Thanksgiving. I don't know if it is still going to happen. I will keep checking.

Sam Salvati may know about this, too.

Awesome. Maybe we can arrange some sort of gathering. Maybe a smelt/barbecue.

 

THAT sounds like an outstanding idea. I'd be happy to bring my profound ignorance to help out at a smelt. While we're at it maybe we can get Sam to take the cinnamon challenge again...

 

Shall we shoot for this Spring?

 

David, let us know when you're moved in and we can all start deciding on location, etc.

As a Texan from a cattle ranching family, I am certain I can make a better barbecued beef brisket than anyone north of Amarillo (and even if I can't, I am required by Texan honor to claim that I can).

 

However, I can't smelt my way out of a paper bag.

 

 

So, if we do get together, I know which job should be mine.

Hogan, Westtown is in Orange County, yes?

Trying to pack up the shop. I think i have enough railroad spikes to make knives for the entire population of Wallkill. :D Debating whether or not to haul them out there.

 

If it helps you make up your mind I've got a couple dozen or so that you can have when we get together eventually. I don't use them anymore 'cause I couldn't get a spike to harden if I quenched it in Viagra. :angry: I'm not buying that they have more than a point or two of carbon... Anyway, I was only hanging onto them to throw in a smelt someday...

 

Just lemme know, they're here.

Got the truck this afternoon. Managed to get all the shop stuff in it just a few minutes ago. Made the mistake of trying to lift a recycling tote full of scrap. I think I pulled something in my leg or back....hurts all the way from my calf through my hip and halfway up my back. I love moving.

 

Should be leaving by Wednesday morning. Get to deal with all the crazies on the road. Wish me luck.

I'm here now. Looks like its going to take quite a while before I can get a forge running. The previous tenants destroyed the garage. I have to clean/fix EVERYTHING.
