Series: Implements of Construction

I am a maker.  This is what I do.

I recognize that I can't do it all on my own.  Sometimes it takes help.  That is where they come in.

I am slowly but surely building my stockpile of Impliments of Construction.  Right now, I am at a place in my life where I have some extra cash and plan, in the very near future, to transition out of my current career.  I feel the need to make sure I am ready to make or build anything once I get to where I am going.

In the weeks to come, I plan to share my love for these amazing tools and pieces of equipment.  Stay tuned for more Implements of Construction.

Altitude Adjustment

In October, I got an Altitude Adjustment.

I drove 1500 miles west from Maryland to my new home in Colorado.


It was a necessary change my entire family needed.  Maryland had really became toxic and it was starting to show.  We made a relatively snap decision to pack up and head West.

My brother lives in Colorado Springs, so we are currently shacked up in his basement.  This is a short term solution until the rest of our lives settle out.  I should get a job, for instance.  I am learning that this is not an easy task.


I focus everyday on the steps needed to establish our life here and try to soak in the beauty around us.  Already I am very happy here even if the situation is stressful at times.

I am thankful to be living in the shadow of Pikes Peak.  I soak in as many sunsets and sun rises as possible and I am looking forward to experiencing winter here.


In the days to come, I should be recording and editing a podcast episode so I can share the entire story.

For now, I look forward to finding my place here and sharing the adventure with you.
