I long to be outdoors. Almost all of my activites involve being out there. Canoeing, kayaking, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking. I built two cedar strip canoes and two cedar strip kayaks and try to get as much use out of them as possible. I like to take on projects that challenge and interest me, but only if I end up with something useful. I recently built three acoustic guitars, a sauna, woodshed, and a mancave.
