What about me?! I'm fiercely patriotic and don't do well with whiners whether they're whiny liberal/conservative or whiny democrat/republican. I think that is one of the reasons woodworking has appealed to me. Problems arise all the time, and no amount of crying or blaming is going to solve them it's 100% up to you to think and act your way out of a jam. I dabbled in it for a while as a teen and then took about an 8 or 9 year hiatus while I was in the Army. I've been slowly upgrading and changing my shop to suit my taste for a couple years now, but will be taking another hiatus as I've been accepted to go to work for department of corrections at pelican bay :) Hopefully once the academy is over with, my shop will see many new improvements! ...or maybe I'll get hooked on skydiving again and you fellas won't hear from me for another ten years O_o Who can tell. They say variety is the spice of life, though! Either way this goes down, I'll be creeping this website from time to time because the collective creativity and inventiveness on this website is absolutely mind blowing! I love to look at projects here and there while I'm waiting in line or on a smoke break at work!

Hey, I’ve been to Cresecent City before! That’s right on the coast by the redwoods, no? Almost to Oregon? Man, I love those tall tall trees.

Ya, you got it. We’re about a 20 mile drive from oregon. The redwoods here are awesome! I really missed them, but I think it was worth it. Now when I look at them they aren’t just another tourist attraction. I get that sense of awe that most locals that haven’t left don’t feel. I remember when I was a kid, 7 or 8 maybe, we used to climb them during mild wind storms and ride the tops like a carnival ride. In hindsight it was kinda stupid, I guess haha. Especially since you have to climb bark for the first 75 feet before you make it to a branch. As an adult I’m not quite the spit-fire I used to be, so I just enjoy being able to walk through the groves and just forget that the rest of society even exists.

Have your say...
