We are makers. Not Makers in the sense that we can make something from nothing, Ex Nihilo, like God creating the Universe, but we humans have this intense desire to make things. Toolmakers. Craftsmen. Artisans.
I make gear. I've been doing it since I read Beyond Backpacking by Ray Jardine, about 12 years ago. He inspired me to make a sleeping quilt and backpack... so I did. I didn't even know how to thread a sewing machine, but I figured, it is just another power tool, right?
