Newly wed 8 year Army vet with almost 7 spent overseas rolling the dice on civilian life. Even though I know that as a civilian, I'll never get another chance to pose with John Wayne's cardboard brother holding our rifles and side arms, I'm open to the new possibilities. I did some woodworking in highschool, and I'm pretty good with general construction. That's what I did before the Army, and that's what I'm doing now until my background check clears and I go to the CO academy. I recently moved into a place with a decent enough shop to take another stab at woodworking, though. It's proving to be quite a nightmare to keep the saw dust away from all my machining equipment and gauges, though. I'm thinking about just building a shed just big enough to house my lathe and mill with a small work bench to put all their tooling under. I'm very excited to be a part of this group and start making up for lost time though! Guide me oh wise ones!

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...
