    Further thought: WCI has a directory of carving clubs listed by the state. Sometimes you can contact a club nearest to where you live and find out if there are members in your neighborhood/nearby and put you in touch with them if you’re wanting to network for carving purposes. Also, not to tout another media, you might follow a Facebook topic of carving interest and find someone posting that lives nearby. On this forum, you could post that you’re from whatever specific geographical area and wanting to network with any carvers from your area, specifically interested in what kinds of carving. That way they can respond to your posting.

    I grew up here in mainland USA....and left in 1986 for Hawaii and planted my feet59e1e42b3508951c6e625d7e6e439ec6.jpg. The year I left was January with a whole month of -21 F. My brother and I were talking about the black ice and how we both had sports cars....with the V8 engines, hitting that ice and ice skating. He wrecked his GTO going 95 miles an hour with my cousin in the car on that black ice. Me and my Cameros...it scared the crap out of me sliding down the hills backwards. Those were the days.

    Well, in general, don't post your telephone number or email address (spammers will pick it up) or street address; if you need to send either to someone, use a Private Message. Other than that, we do occasionally have youth members on here, so keep it clean and family-friendly. When in doubt, ask a Moderator - that's what we are here for...

    If any of you would like your location added to your profile so it shows up, similar to mine, just let one of the Moderators know by PM and we'll add in your location if you don't know how.

    Oh boy... Well. I'm a bit of an outsider. Middle of the Atlantic, Azores Islands, Terceira Island to be more specific. But i got to know WCI when i lived in the Tobermory, Isle of Mull, West Coast of Scotland (11 awesome years).

    Now retired in S.CA about 10 miles east of Laguna Beach. It's nice here but I lived most of my life in Minnesota and would move back in a heart beat, but I'm married, if you know what I mean.

    South Western Nova Scotia, Canada. I can stand on my back deck and throw a rock into the Atlantic Ocean. No organized carving clubs anywhere near me ( heck I'm so far out in the boonies there's hardly anything near me ).

    Probably lived in British Columbia longer than anywhere else. I don't seem to have a "from" place.
    This village of 650 is where I've hung my hat for 20 years now. My house is at the north end of the village, to the right in the picture.
