In the spirit of the world having been a better place when we laughed with our neighbors instead of arguing with strangers and watched camp fires instead of computer screens let's play a game.

Some form of heat map would be more efficient and modern but we can do this old school.

IF you are interested in linking up with other people locally to form mutual support networks then Reply to this thread with your APPROXIMATE location and how long you can drive to meet, time not miles.

I'll compile the Replies into one post broken down by geography. If you're a border dweller then reach out to your friends across the border.

Meet your locals, exchange contact info, pick pre arranged meet up points, go for some hikes, have family dinner, etc.

You never know when it might be useful.

I'll start

Battle Ground, WA,
2 hours out

Heat map doesn't allow for user names. Going to do it by cities, trying to hold a one hour radius from city to city if geography allows.

I'm just North of Seattle.  I can drive where I'm needed.

Hiked 6 miles today under load with about a dozen ARF.commers.

Start meeting people.

South of Graham.

I'll be able to meet closer more easily, but 90-120 minutes out could be arranged occasionally.

I have been thinking that it could be good to get together with people and share skills.  We're all decent at something that someone else wants to learn.

Now that we're starting to get a number of people in some areas, what are some good things to do at a meetup?

In the past, shooting was always a no brainier but with the current state of things, it probably wouldn't last long. Lol

Basic map 'n' compass stuff, for when they shut off the GPS satellites.

Shape, shine, sound, silhouette - aka: avoiding detection.

Just some starters.

I will happily offer up the Caboose for a rally point. Probably hafta be a nice day out, as I only have indoor seating for three. But, shitloads of parking across the street. I was in Uncle Sam's Canoe Club for Boys, so platoon tactics and face-painting are outside my bailiwick. I have some Baofengs on which I could use serious instruction, among other things. I already know a few hundred arftards, so you should feel moderately safe in my lair...
