What is it to enjoy the outdoors?  There are all sorts of sports and hobbies that take us out into the wilderness, and we find great joy there.  For some I would imagine that it is the brag of doing something special or crazy that gets them all fired up.  Some love the physical challenge of taking it on and being able to succeed, not to beat Mother Nature but to succeed.  Others just like the quite.  One thing that is common in all of these sorts of things is gear.  I have heard it said "it's all about the gear."  I don't know if that is entirely true, but good gear definitely does make a difference.  Even if you are that guy that can do it all with one pocket knife and nothing else.  I am sure you want a good pocket knife if that is your only item of gear.  That is my mission, my goal, to provide good quality and sensible gear and try to meet all price ranges and desires.  I always use what I list for sale and if it junk or doesn't make sense I won't sell it.  Even if it is in a line of other products which are good.  Now I know everyone won't love everything I have, but I promise it is all good stuff.  If you have have a suggestion let me know.   I only wish to promote people enjoying nature, and being prepared, with stuff that will work when the time arises.  So thanks for your visit and support and farewell for now.  C.

The Green House

"When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us."

My goal is to save every historic structure possible. I always start by removing the "band aids" that have been placed over the last 100 years or so, and then I start from scratch. In every C.D. Wright restored home you will find new plumbing, wiring, repair or replacement of structural damage, and the finest of materials are always used. I never cut corners despite time or expense. My goal is to provide a quality home that will last another 100 years.

These are some shots from when I first purchased the home
