Hey John great to meet you. Virtual campfire...I like the concept!
Are there any particular areas you are more experienced in or are looking to develop? If you haven't already had a chance to check out the groups you should have a nosey. We are getting quite a few members building up in Waikato, maybe we could look at setting a group up for that region. I know that Colin Wheeler is keen to set up a workshop when the numbers are sufficient, for flintknapping and primitive bowmaking from what I understand.
Anyway great to have you on board, make sure you join the BushcraftNZ Library and borrow a book or two.
