Much Better than Fair!

September 25, 2022

One of my favorite places on earth is “Fair Hill” park in northeastern Maryland. Technically “Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area” this 5700 acres of rolling countryside was assembled by William duPont, Jr. in the 20th century so he had adequate space to foxhunt and train racehorses. The state thankfully purchased it from his estate, […]

Something About Devon

August 1, 2022

In 2013 and 2014, after several years helping others prepare for and compete in the Devon Carriage Marathon, it was time for me to give it a shot.

Twice the Fun at Morven Park

July 25, 2022

In 2016 I had the amazing experience of showing both father and son at Morven Park in Leesburg VA.

Look What Followed Me Home

August 11, 2020

In August 2020, some friends helped me salvage several large machines from a backyard shed. These machines probably shouldn’t have been put in a backyard shed! After a day securing the machines for transport and other preparation, my hauler showed up with their 53 foot Landoll trailer and announced they couldn’t get into the site. […]

I’ve been tinkering with a product idea for the garage for a while, mainly because I want one of them myself!
