Sorry, but I hate the piled high presentation of food. That's the way a dog would eat. Potato, bacon and egg should be separated on the plate. Anyway I hope you had a nice trip out West.

Hi,
Thanks for taking a look. I’ve always focused more on flavour than presentation, but you have a point in that we eat first with our eyes.
Take it easy.

Have you ever used ObenaufsLP? If not, you should. I think you would be amazed!

Hi, I actually haven’t done anything to my bags but give them a bit of a cleaning with a damp cloth. The Obernaufs sounds like a good product, I’ll have to check it out. Maybe for my boots.

Friendship tattoo with my Mom. Can you guess which one is mine? Done by Arno at PSC tattoo in Montreal. My Mom’s first tattoo, and she was tough.

Last one of 2013. Not nearly as many hours this year as last, but that’s how things go.
The belt is still serving me well. I enjoy the suspenders, but after wearing them for several months the leather has had time to stretch out. That has meant an annoying propensity for the shoulder pads, chest strap and yoke to move out of their comfortable position. All relatively easily fixed. A few stitches through the shoulder pads and rivets (Chicago screws in my case) to bind the other components.

The inside scoop. Because I haven’t posted this view in a while. Getting pretty shiny.

Not a long week. Two more or less rainy days. Not too sure how rainy because I stayed in my nice warm bed!
Switched things up again. I think this may be the ideal setup…For now.
It’s worth taking a look at some of the earlier photos. The change over time has been gradual, but is quite pronounced.

Hey, I love your blog! I am a huge geek when it comes to gear. In the past year I quit my desk job and am now taking a Trades program at my college. I am leaning toward electrical/carpentry. How did you get involved in the trades and how was the first couple of months?

Hi there, you have some pretty nice photos yourself!

I too took a trade program. I went in straight from high school. My program was strictly carpentry, but the more you know…

I loved the trade school experience. Lots of interesting things to learn, and my first time actually having an interest in the material being presented. It was interesting as well because I found at first that I was far better at the theory than the practice. That balanced out in time.

Good luck, and keep me posted!

Another week of the same. The excavators must be paying to play!
I like the patina developing on the pads of the shoulder straps. I may switch the calculator over to the left and put back the hammer loop. I like to play around and see what feels most efficient.
