The Need for Less

By | life

Anyone who spends a significant amount of personal time around me knows I am always donating, selling, or simply throwing away crap. Some friends just shake their head and laugh. I’m sure there is a diagnosis in a book somewhere for my need to not have a ton of “clutter” around. I think it has to do with carrying around so much “weight”. The more “stuff” you have, the more you have to worry about…

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a trip up to DogHouse Forge in Lakeland, Florida to participate in a two day, hands on hatchet clinic. DogHouse Forge is run by Jonathan Porter and Alex Eisenberg and they hand forge high quality culinary tools, outdoor knives and probably anything else that strikes their interest.

Over the past year, my brother and I have been plugging away at building RelicRecord.com; a small SaaS application for metal detecting enthusiasts and collectors to have a simple way to catalog and archive all the items they find or collect.

If you ain’t puckered up, then you ain’t drivin’ fast enough.

Mount Mitchell, North Carolina

By | life, nature

This past week, I decided to get out of dodge for a while and take a small road trip up around Western North Carolina. I was ready to see some fall colors, turn off the (work) phone for a while, and see some friends I haven’t seen in a long while. Quite a few of my planned stops revolved around national parks I hadn’t been to before (or at least don’t remember).

Self Taught

By | education

I’m pretty much self taught with the work I do revolving around computers. My “formal” education is in the fine arts. While that may seem useless to some, what it did do very well was prepare me to figure out crap on my own. I mean, there is no manual to tell you how to express yourself…

Relic Roundup Podcast

By | entrepreneur, Relic Record
This past Monday night, my brother Will and I were given an opportunity to speak about our new venture RelicRecord.com on the Relic Roundup podcast hosted by American Digger Magazine. All in all it was a great experience and we can't say enough kind things about the whole crew and all the excellent guests who made the night a success. I'm told that we reached just over 1,600 people that night and I'm sure that number will...

By | entrepreneur, life, links

Yea. I’ve been busy. Been burning what is left of my oil on Relic Record. Good progress is being made and I’m learning quite a bit. Always a good thing to work on things outside of what you normally would be exposed to. If only this thing was already making money so I could focus all my time… Enjoy these links. The world is getting more and more crazy and interesting. What I’d tell myself…
