I’m just a man. I’m probably one of the stranger combinations of a person you’ll ever meet. I’m a country boy, and live in the woods of eastern Kentucky. I’m a combat veteran of the Iraq war and received an honorable discharge from active duty with the US Army. I’m a son, brother, husband, and a father. I take great pride in providing for my family and myself, and being as self sufficient as reasonably possible. I believe if you can do something yourself, if you can earn something by working for it, then you appreciate it more. I do most of my own work on my car, I make my own handles for tools when one is needed, I hunt, fish, and otherwise try to be as self sufficient as possible. I’m a staunch defender of the 2nd amendment and believe in individual liberty and responsibility. I love the outdoors; hunting, fishing, and hiking. I’m also a computer enthusiast, and have spent much of my professional life working as an IT consultant, help desk director, network technician, server administrator, etc. I run Linux on all of my personal computers, and am a big advocate of free open source software. I have a Playstation 3 and occasionally play online games with it. I own and operate my own Citizens’ Band (CB) Radio station and use it to keep in touch with people around my community.
My goal in starting this blog is to create a space for myself on the web where I can put thought and care into my writing. I wanted a space where I could post the things that I normally would post on Facebook, but with a bit more attention to detail.
I hope I can become a productive member of this community, and I hope you all enjoy my blogs, as I’m sure I will enjoy yours, 🙂
