Extreme Self Build

I have been in the best of luck of late, and have found many fascinating and inspiring articles on the Art of Manliness, and on the wider web.  Today, I have found myself in awe of a chap who has dedicated his life, or a good part of it, to traditional, some might say primitive, technology and methods.  The mastery of skills and knowledge demonstrated must have taken years to acquire and perfect, and for this reason alone, I consider this fellow to be a truly dedicated advocate of the art of…

Feeling reflective... just perused the 20 pages of forum groups and joined those that seemed interesting.

New to the Art of Manliness site, just got the AOK for forum contributions a couple days ago.  I've enjoyed the various articles at AOM over the past couple years... have posted them to Facebook on occasion, especially for my two young adult sons and one daughter.  Good stuff here.  Looking forward to contributing, learning from others, gaining perspective from other men who come from different backgrounds, experiences, etc. …
