  1. Incredible series of articles that we can all learn from in the real world and you did a great job of telling an incredbile life story. God bless you and yours. Thank you Sir.

  2. Wonderful story sir. It’s always very refreshing to read the “good, bad, and ugly”… the real story of a mans life. My hats off to you.
    I’m a believer that there remains a remnant of Liberty loving people in this blessed land. With God, we have hope.

  3. Any chance you could post plans or even rough drawings? I’m having a hard time visualizing some of what you’ve described, but it all sounds really interesting.

  4. I echo TJMO above.

    This series was a really great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Now I’m in search of books by our older generations that are biography in nature, but are worth the read because of the teachings.

  5. I admire all the work you have done, Doc. I fear that even with expertise and energy, I would not be able to approach your accomplishments due to a simple factor…money. You report having it in abundance, and good for you.

    Those of us who have less, far less, do what we do with that. I like to read about ingenious ways to make up for lack of money with creativity. Any stories fellow SB correspondents?

    Carry on

  6. Dear Doc: If you decide to leave the USA (the country that gave you the freedoms to acquire your wealth) and go to South America, your wealthy neighbors will be none other than the corrupt American politicians that ruined the USA! What makes you think that South America will be your new “Garden of Eden”???

    Ephesians 6:10-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    The Armor of God

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against [a]flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

    1. Either back out of this article to this week’s posts and scroll down to find previous days’ posts or, if the earlier installments were posted last week, go to the bottom of this page and back up a page/week (Page 1 is the current week, page 2 is the previous week, and so on.) Then just scroll until you find what you are looking for.

  7. Doc, I’m glad you also noticed how evil most of our politicians are. I like Ted Cruz’ proposed constitutional amendment to apply terms limits to politicians. His proposal is 3 terms in the house, 2 in the senate. I would add there should be no government paid retirement for politicians at all, except for Social Security, like the rest of us peons. I would also propose term limits on bureaucrats, no more than 10 years total no matter how many different jobs they hold, with no retirement other than Social Security, like the rest of us peons. With political appointees, no longer than the term of the president they serve under, and no retirement other than Social Security, like the rest of us peons. No medical benefit other than Medicare and Medicaid depending on their age.

    I bet they’d fix the problems with Social Security and Medicare and medicaid then.

  8. Doc,
    What a great series. You are very creative. I think if it all came unglued, you would feel a tremendous sense of energy and purpose. I think trying to be creative in our approaches to survival counts for a lot. Counting all the Americans with their many ailments and lack of common sense, I would be amazed to see the golden hoards get very far.

  9. Having been raised in the concrete business and later being a concrete contractor for several decades and then (and now) being a dirt excavation contractor and being a welder and fabricator for four decades, all your work that you have been describing has played out in my mind and I appreciate the years of hard work and designing that you have done. When you have told about a certain project that you designed and then accomplished, some folks might think that you performed that task over a period of a day or slightly more but I know that some of those projects really took weeks of very hard work. Hot weather only makes doing them even worse.

  10. Loved your article so much, I was frustrated to have to wait three days for the end. The part of the story where you were injured and your wife left you is so horrible, I am still shaking my head in disbelief. Am saying a prayer for you that your remaining life will be filled with true love, just like God did for Job. About your buildings, I am in awe. That is very similar to my dream. Thank you for sharing!
