No More Hiking Sticks

I had the two sticks on the right to do, and touched up the redwood one on the left.  These and two or three more finished ones inside I have been carrying around for over a year now.  With this darn COVID business I cannot give them away.  If you are unable to meet and interact with people how can one offer them a free hiking stick?  I’m done.  Not making them anymore.

  1. Can they be left at a watering hole with luggage label style tags tied to them saying "these are hiking sticks, please take one"? At least there's a chance somebody will adopt one.....?

    1. That idea has been suggested to me before but I would like to see who adopts one of my sticks. I will eventually find a home for them.

  2. It's the T-Rex! He's cute. I'd love a new hiking stick...for when I can hike the trails around here again...or if I can. I gave mine that I had for years to a son, who really doesn't need one, but he helped make it so it seemed right.

  3. I would LOVE to have that super redwood stick! But sadly I'm too far away to come and collect it.

    1. i would love for you to have it. But to be honest the redwood stick is quite large and not really suited for a woman’s hand, or even mine for that matter. It is more like a staff that Moses would have.

  4. Maybe you can just leave them propped against a tree and someone in need would be grateful? Just a thought. They are too gorgeous to not be seen or used.

    1. That idea has been suggested to me before but I would like to see who gets one of my sticks, plus I don’t want one to be just “found” and used for fire wood.
