I'm taking geology courses at UNH (one per semester, so "half speed.")  My summary so far, "Mineralogy is hard."  But I'm really enjoying it, and I've been looking at my scenery with a much more educated eye (with some things being reconsidered because they no longer look right.)

That sounds great Dave.....I wish I had taken a few geology courses in college so I could understand what I was seeing when we head out west to the Rockies. Pegi and I love being in the mountains, but I don't understand what I'm seeing beyond really big hills, lots of trees and a bunch of snow.  ???

The "Roadside Geology" book series is a good place to start.  My geology profs aren't real fond of them, too simplistic.  But for someone with no background, they're good.  The other book I'd recommend, the one that got me back into geology, is John McPhee's "Annals of the Former World".

Also, many states have introductory books/pamphlets on geology.  One of my favorites was from the PA Geologic Survey, "Geology of the Gettysburg Campaign."

Well I am finally done the garage as far as I want to take it at this time.

Give this video a glance to see how it turned out.

Guys, thanks for stopping by, it is appreciated.

Here is a quick one day build of an old storage shed that will be hidden behind the engine house when I eventually get to it.

Be kind with this build.

Another quick update.

I bought a FSM Sand House kit back in late 2016 and started to build it. Then I put on the back shelf until some other tasks were completed. Now is the time to finish it.

Join me in the journey in build the kit with no instructions, only templates and stripwood that was sized wrong. What would I should have expected for a $20.00 CDN kit?
