I haven’t seen The Martian yet, but I imagine there’s a good stretch of the show where Matt Damon tries to figure out how to let people know he’s still alive.
Maybe when I see it I’ll get some good ideas to try on anyone out there wondering what became of this blog.
I have moved to rural Minnesota, halfway between the Twin Cities and Fargo.
We’re on a small farm with a number of outbuildings full of the expected combination of trash, junk, and treasures.
There’s also some beautiful Ash, Oak, and Maple trees around the place.
What doesn’t exist yet is a workshop. My tools are on the front porch, crowded among remodeling supplies, an old Maytag electric Washer, and a dual fuel (propane and wood) kitchen stove.
All the cameras that work have gone missing, or I’d be sharing photos of some of the old tools I’ve found and started to clean up.
My hope is that we can get a new pole-barn up before Winter that I will use a small part of for my shop.
Winter comes early in these parts, so I don’t know yet if this will happen in time.
