Long time Ohio member returning
« on: December 10, 2022, 10:28:00 PM »
Hello from S. E. Ohio hill Country. I could not believe I remembered the password to this site. It took me three tries then I was in. I sometimes can't remember where I set down my coffee !! I have been a member here since October 2005. For some reason ... I forgot all about this site over the many past years. I was an active participant in many of the forum boards long ago like MLML (Muzzle Loading Mailing List), Frontier Folk Message Board, Historical Trekking, COHT, 24 Hour Campfire and several others. All of those are pretty much gone except for the archives. Face book lists have held my attention for the last 10 years. I'm glad I stopped in here again to catch up. Now that I know my log in info, I can stop in often. I'm a BP shooter, flintlock mostly although in the fall I bought a Traditions Crockett .32 rifle to play with. I'm also a long time blacksmith and try to be out shooting and fishing when ever I can. Recently retired, I hope to do more of that once winter has come and gone. I'm a member of the Sons of Liberty Muzzleloading Club in southern Ohio. Looking forward to reading posts. That ought to keep me busy for a while.

Welcome Rusty,  I remember you from MLML many moons ago.  I have only been on here for a short time.

Welcome back from me also!  :wave  Another former MLML person here.  If you're shooting at Canter's Cave you must be down in the Jackson area?  I can't get away long enough to drive down there and so shoot here at the Athens Fish & Game Club.  Nice range, but the membership has dwindled to the point that it may fold, I'm afraid.

I have (somewhere) the MLML archived files I downloaded before TOF pulled the plug on it. If you (or anybody else) are interested in them I can probably dig them up and forward them to you. PM me if you want them.

Curious.  December 10, 2022 he writes that he is all excited about re-establishing residence here. 
Did he pay his dues?
And hasn't been heard of since.
Sure hope nothing has happened to Rusty.
