Paleoplanet Gathering Photos

It turned out we had our gathering after all at the Arroyo Seco archery range. The rain didn't start until about 2 so up until then it was business as usual for us with people doing knapping, bow making, atlatl throwing, archery and some pretty cool stuff. I was the only one with a camera so here are some of the photos I took.

Postponement Possible

It looks like Mr. Weather is not going to cooperate. Tom is talking about postponing the meeting until next Sunday. So before you drive out there be sure to check http://www.paleoplanet.net/ for the lastest info. Unless you live in Pasadena and it's no big deal to look out your window and see if it's raining.

Paleoplanet Meeting This Sunday

We should have some great weather for this Sunday's meeting. We got a bit of rain mid week so that should green things up out there, wash the dust off the trees, and make everything more beautiful than it already is. So bring your bows out to build, or bring your flintknapping tool bucket, or your beads to sew onto your quiver. Come prepared with tools and questions. We do have a loaner tool bucket in blue, because no one can anticipate every tool they might need. Or if you have old tools you wouldn't mind adding to the bucket you can do that too. Label your stuff because at the end of the day we always end up with a few leftover tools or wood and no one knows who it belongs to. See you out there at the Arroyo Seco bridge.

I want to live in a yurt. I don't know why, because I have no experience other than tent camping to compare it to. Can I buy an acre out in the country in Calif. and put a yurt on it? I'm not sure what to do about bathroom facilities. Solar shower and camping toilet? I can't believe I said toilet in my first blog post. Anyone have any land for sale in Halcyon CA?

Archery on My Birthday

For my birhday I want to the Mile Square Park archery range. I was hoping some of our friends would be there, but alas, it was just us. So we shot until our arms were tired, and then went out for a soda and tacos. I can't believe that on such a gorgeous Sunday the range had very few people. And we were the only two doing traditional archery.
