Oh what's up neighbor? You're definitely crushing man I've seen the grabbler clock that's a work of art. I'd like one of those for the homestead.

I could be crushing more, but I got to start somewhere. Ive got only one real request for a clock so far, and I am almost done with it. I was pretty excited about it, so I added a paypal order button on my dlive page for anyone else. I cant say exactly when it will get out to you, but I will start making one if you are interested. The new one I am making is solid pine, Owen's was some scrap plywood I had on hand.

What's up Robert. Yeah Ryan I'll get one. I have some hickory trees on my property I'm sure there's a log I could give you if you want. I'm surprised more people haven't ordered one to be honest. What kind of work do yall do??

Instead of "being tall" O clock make it "overcoming shortness" because I'm only 3 rogans tall.  
7 months ago

3 rogans is like 10 inches. I'm 20.2 rogans tall, I think that's about 7 inches and 5 feet.

I work retail, but I am trying to make my own products to sell to get off of the corporate teet.

7 months ago

Yeah I'm about 20 rogans myself I always sell myself short. 

I hear that though your concrete work is pretty cool man do you do a lot of woodwork too? I have an idea for a sign I want to hang on the wall. I want it to say " be in the world but not of it". That's a pretty important phrase for me to remember.

I'm in Raleigh.  Let me know if you're ever out my way.

If we get enough people,  we could arrange a regional meetup. I would want to get several solid commitments first, though.
7 months ago
That's a good quote for a sign. I do a little of everything, I wouldn't say I do a lot of one thing. I would be doing more if I had a shop or garage, for now I just use a room in my house.

Philosophical bear I'd be down for that man. I've been wanting to put myself around more like-minded people for a while. All my friends are pretty worthless tbh. Hey Ryan you got my payment for the grabbler clock right? And I thought about it man leave the "being tall" on there if you haven't started making it already. It's your creation and it's great no need to change it.

@wifemebear , I like it, I am in Florence, an hour away. I was born and raised (for 12 years) in southern California, and moved to Las Vegas (for another 12). The difference to me is quite noticable. Way more friendly people out here.

SC is alright. Myrtle Beach is a tourist trap though but it's just packed during the summer. Other than that it's alright just keep your bikes locked up and hidden.  That's pretty much everywhere in SC though.

There's an email feature here if you dont want to post your emails publicly. If you click on the user, go to contact, the message you send will be delivered to their email. Maybe 1/50 times it will fail due to various reasons though, I don't know. I'm considering adding a solution where you can see from your panel whether the message received successful success codes from the API service (Mailgun), but for now it works almost always.

Guys I'd like to reach out and make connections to fellow bears in my area. I'm in Columbia. I think getting to know like-minded people is more important now than ever. I hope y'all are all crushing. Anybody please feel free to send me an email to establish a line of communication.

Hey guys, just joined. just popping in to say what's up. I'm just south of Charlotte, NC in a town called Indian Trail

Are there bears in these mountains?  I hope so.  I'm researching relocating from Ohio to NC because of the clean air and water, lots of fracking in eastern Ohio.  We're looking at land near Polkville and would love to meet some bears.

How many of you guys are interested in a regional bear meetup?
1 month ago
I'm up for it! Though it will have to either be kid friendly or after September.

I'm just south of Charlotte in Indian Trail. I'm down for meet up. Maybe pick a place as central to everyone as possible. Do a pot luck/ cook out at a park somewhere so kids can play and adults can talk or do whatever. 
1 month ago

Yeah, I was thinking outdoors. My only worry is that many parks have closed their restrooms. We might need to pick a place close to a gas station or grocery store where people can go if they need to.

I'm all for having a kid-friendly event.

I'm interested up here on the north side of CLT.  Went to Crowder's Mountain July 3.  Bathrooms were open. Same day, King's Mountain shop is closed, but bathrooms open.  All outside. If that helps.  -- Illegal.Eagle.Bear

Yo,  what’s up bears.  Charlotte checking in

Hey, y'all!    I've got a few ideas for a more central location.  I'll rattle the bushes and get back to you. :)

For our regional meetup, the tentative date is Saturday, August 29th. How many of you are in?

If we have enough people from out West, we can try meeting somewhere central, like Asheboro. That should be an easy drive from both Raleigh and Charlotte.  We already have a decent number of people in Raleigh, so I only want to ask them to drive a ways if there will be at least several other people coming in from further out.

Sup, bears!!  We're meeting tomorrow in central Raleigh around 6pm; some won't get there till 7.  In terms of a central location for regional meetup, it seems that Asheboro is best, because it's approximately the same distance for everyone; and I know of a good place there.  You can sit up to ten at a table, and there's a park behind where people can hang out.  However, the date is open, and we'll need more input before making it a thing (as some people will be driving 2-3 hours, like, most of us).  So, let's make it good!!  :)  Some have said Sept or Oct is a better time, and I'm fine with that.  Y'all need to throw out some dates that work best for you.  My schedule is flexible. 

If someone wants to setup more of a camping-type event, I'm down for that as well.  In that case, the location could be anywhere, since we won't have to worry about making the trip back same day.

What are your thoughts? 

p.s. If I missed tagging someone it was not intentional.  Some people are not on this platform, but they still kick-ass and are coming! :)  If you are trying to get ahold of someone for the event, best to try multiple people.  (I have an attention deficit w/ email.)

Love everybody!!  Looking forward to meeting more of you.

@abrownbear Thank you!  It was great!  Looking forward to the next.  :)

How many SC bears do we have here? I split my time between the upstate and Charleston

I'm going to camp on my friends' property this coming weekend. They are building a farm. If anybody wants to come this Sunday or Monday, let me know. Kids welcome. They have kids;  I don't have kids.  I don't have a tent, so you need to have your own stuff. They have a structure there, but I don't plan to impose on their space with people i don't know. (Just get there and see how it goes.)

 It would be cool to help out with one of their projects, or just chill and get to know people. They have a coulpe of unplugged sites, and a stream or pond on the property. 

It's in Salisbury. If you're interested, send me an email/message. Those coming from Raleigh area will meet and carpool, if schedule permits.
