David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.

Hi there David. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.

AoM Manly Skills

I'm going to assume that other than camaraderie, most of you have joined the Art of Manliness so that you can perhaps learn some skills that you hope would make you a better man.  So in that spirit I am dubbing this thread the official "here is what I learned from AoM" thread! This is the thread where you can post pictures, progress, or stories about manly skills you learned and put to work from AoM! My first thing is I'm going to restore an old Axe Head that I dug up a couple years ago when I…See More
