Graduated Basic Training

Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to bring a camera with me, so most of what happened at basic will stay at basic.  Here are a few pics that I was able to get from various sources. "Why?" You ask. "What does it mean?" you ask. I don't really have answers. These are the photos I got from the last day of the strangest 9 weeks I've ever gone through. Do these pics reflect in any way shape or form what basic was like? NOPE, but they are pretty funny.

Campingtrip 2013 FINALLY

Made a Stiletto

I had a very old and rusted 3 sided file that I've wanted to turn into a 3 sided stiletto for a couple years and I finally had a reason to do it so I went for it. I made this for Monica for her B-Day.  The blade and tong are from the file, the hilt is made from part of a turn of the century water tank band, the handle is fashioned from deer antler, hunted by a friends grandfather in the 1960s. The pommel is out of a piece of metal from part of some old local farm equipment and the copper flowers are hammered from a couple of 1960's pennies I got from my grandmothers house. The Pommel nut is an acorn nut rounded down to shape.

Went fishing with my Bro in the Santa Cruz Mountains

There is a lot I COULD say about these pics, location, etc, but I'm not going to. If you've been there, you know where we were. If you have not, you probably never will.
