Hi from Eastern NC!!!!

Hey guys I am new to the walkingstick forum site. Just started making a walkingstick for my mom (walking in the woods, not a cane) and I figured the slingshotforum helped me tune my slingshot skills in, why not go to this forum to do the same. I am not sure If i am going to be an avid stick creator, but for now i shall try. Thanks for letting me use this site to learn and get some ideas from.

Like you, I began on the slingshot forum. Walking in the woods to find slingshot material led me to this. I discovered that the walks along wooded trails were far more enjoyable than the walks in neighborhoods, and my focus changed. Perhaps because of the healing power of time, perhaps of the focus on these new pastimes, for the first time in over forty years, I am able to enjoy a walk in the woods without looking for ambushes, kill zones, and booby traps. Free at last!

No doubt, you've seen those walking sticks with a fork at the top, for use either as a two-hand grip for resting, or as a place to steady a rifle. Eventually, if they haven't already done so, somebody will mount a slingshot to the top of a stick!

Glad to read that you can find rest and restoration in the woods. Humans need to engage w. something more complex than their own creations. A mile spent weaving thru some prairie or forrest is as much exercise as 4 miles on a track, and vastly more entertaining.
