#87: Ben – Blacksmith Class

I sometimes get jealous of the awesome things our kids get to do through Trackers. Fortunately, I’m a grownup, and I can sign myself up for classes, too!

This is part of our 100 Things in 2018 challenge. Make sure to click on the photos!

This adventure is in blacksmithing, taken through Trackers PDX. I packed a lunch and a couple liters of water and trucked down to southeast Portland for a day at the forge. This was my first time, so we started with the projects everyone does: hooks, barbecue skewers, a steak flipper, and a bottle opener. No swords (this time).


I really enjoyed spending a day learning a new craft. I’m not sure that I can make this part of my life, but that bottle opener is going to get plenty of use around here.
