I realize it's been a while since I've posted an update here, and I'm afraid it may still be a while before I can get back to posting weekly updates, but, that being the case, I wanted to provide a view of the big picture.
My first child was born at the end of March, so adjusting to fatherhood and the additional responsibilities thereof has taken up some of my time. Moreover, the adjustment process made it apparent that I need to expedite some major home improvement projects, as well as overhaul our vehicle situation. On top of that, I signed up to participate as a vendor at the Mackay Market this summer, a weekly vendor fair in Mackay, Idaho (Saturdays from 11 AM to 2 PM, if anyone happens to be passing through Mackay and wants to drop by). So the bottom line is that I have a lot of demands on my time right now--some of them more or less unforeseen.
I'm not sure yet how much my current workload will impact my video posting schedule. Over the last few months, my queue of videos pending upload has dwindled from ~15 pending videos to ~3, but so far I haven't missed a week yet. I may get a few videos out of my home improvement projects, and I'm sure I can work in a few other videos on the side over the course of the summer.
As time permits, and once I get some of my more pressing obligations taken care of, my two top priorities are the Ghost Eagle project and making an improvised .30-06 barrel for the GEFRRSn. After those two projects are complete, I hope to publish historical reference books about both the GEFRRSn and the Ghost Eagle, respectively—similar to the ones I published about the UTAH and the Reverse-Pump Shotgun. I'm also still working on my printed sabot experiments, and continuing to tinker around with my T-sling concept.
Beyond that, I've published several more "Illustrated Expeditionary Journals of an Idahoan" that I'll make videos of when I have a chance, and of course my psalter project is still ongoing. And, on occasion, when I have time to relax, I'm still writing more of The Archwood Chronicles.
So hopefully this gives you some idea of what to expect from me in the next six months, or a year, or however long it takes. Thank you all for bearing with me through this slightly hectic season.
