How To Commute When Working From Home?

Being self-employed, and working from home, I don’t have that super long commute anymore. So how do I “commute” by bike when I really only have to walk from my bedroom to my computer in the living room. So I figured it out! I get up as I normally would, get geared up, get on […]

Black Friday Picnic

Paratrooper Saddle Bag

I was needing a saddle bag of the Paratrooper. I knew that they range anywhere from $20 – $30. I thought to myself, why not save a couple of bucks and make one. Today was a slow day at work. This gave me the perfect opportunity to make a one. All materials I used were […]
