Growing up with my Dad was a lot of fun, he always enjoys getting to do manly things and I always got to go along with it!
I remember times of getting to go 4-wheeling in our 1972 Toyota FJ Cruiser up in the mountains, driving through mud puddles that would come showering down on us from above because we didn’t have a roof or doors.
I remember getting to build my first Pine Wood derby car. We built it up as a model A (of which later on in my teens we actually tried building a 4×4 model A) and we got to race that together.
I remember taking road trips across the USA (okay, so we only really did road trips when we were moving… but hey its a trip) and getting to see most of our great country from the window of our car.
I remember spending hours playing guitar, teaching myself how to play. Hurting my fingers until I couldn’t play anymore. I got my first guitar (a First Act) from Walmart, and played that thing like crazy. I later ended up with a Lyle guitar, and the 1962 Gibson B25 that my Mewma passed down from me.
I say all of this because from an early age, I have gotten to have gear. Manly gear. Gear that helped me shape memories.
Today, I have some really exciting gear that I want to be able to tell the world about, and this is where I get to do this. You’ll also get to hear fun stories about my life a long the way!
