Hello, new to the forum but I have been inspired by the sticks I have seen and finally decided to join. I am a retired LEO from NM now living in AZ. Since retiring 13 years ago the wife and I have lived in Arizona, then upstate New York, then Michigan and now back in Arizona for good this time. I have made and collected walking sticks and canes in all locations. Southern AZ is poor for decent sized straight enough sticks so I look hard during trips to NM to see the grandkids. I will need to take some pics of the sticks I have made.
