My family and I are in the works of moving to southern oregon. We wish to live in the ashland area. This will be in months time but I would like to send a early heads up to anyone in the area. I still havent gotten any poi but would like to know if there is any stores in the area? so I know if i need to get it via here internet or can I pick some up in OR.
Also if any in the area want to chat so im not so newbie over there that would be cool.
thanks

Hiya smile There's a ton of spinners here in Oregon. I've yet to make a trip south, so I'm not too overly familiar with the folks down there, but there's a troupe in ashland and several folks in the surrounding areas. Eugene here has an amazingly large population of fire spinners and Portland has a crazy amount as well. The only problem is that there's alot of factions and cliques, so it's sometimes hard to find folks. Anyways, if Ashland is your destination, check here:

https://tribes.tribe.net/higherfirescience

You can find me on tribe and myspace as suibom if you use either of those portals. Tribe is a good resource for finding North American spinners/fire folk.

Peace,

Definition of poi- A Hawaiian food made from the tuber of the taro that is cooked, pounded to a paste, and fermented.

Ahnold discussing poi - "It is naht a toober!"
