I must be in the DIY mood because I have about nine big projects going on around the place. I just finished upcycling a perfectly good dresser. Read about that here. And I’m upcycling a desk and table as well. I got a great deal from the ReStore on 8 foot boards so there is [...]

Well, like many Americans with time on their hands I’ve gotten into the upcycle trend of taking crap and making it treasure. It’s a fun past-time and I am enjoying feeling a bit green and hippie while producing hipster furniture. Naturally, like all hipster wannabes, I’m blogging about my masculine foray into woodwork. Here is [...]

Merry Christmas, Cube Abandoners! We hope the year ahead is as stunning, rich, and full as the year behind us soon will be. With warm moments spent with friends and family, and a life that fills full and happy. 2013 was a transition year for ATC. We traveled quite a bit in the USA, our [...]

Staying fit and active is an essential factor to healthy living. The only thing is, running on a treadmill or pounding the cross trainer isn’t fun for those of us who aren’t gym bunnies and it isn’t an appealing option while you’re travelling. So, if you’re looking for inspiration to make fitness fun, look no [...]

Well… I went to my first ever gun show last weekend in Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA. As part of the south, the gun laws are more lax than in other states (NC recently legalized carrying guns in public parks, for example). At the same time, you need a permit to buy a handgun (not [...]

When one Abandons the Cube one has little money. Still, with a bit of creativity you can do wonders. I was reading a few blogs and came across a lovely idea to make a headboard out of cardboard. Stop! Don’t click away, it’s true! You can do it and not have it look like a [...]

If you like to keep up with what’s going on, you’ll have heard a lot of people discussing the so-called Trickle-Down Effect. Although there’s pretty much nothing out there to back it up, this theory has been a big thing in conservative economics since the early 80s. It basically states that where plenty of people [...]

That’s right folks, we’ve tied the knot. After seven years of traveling around the globe together we finally took the real, ultimate plunge into an unknown and scary realm. After so many trials and journeys the wedding itself didn’t seem to propose too many problems, at least in the planning phase. Lauren did the planning. [...]

That’s right, we just spent eight days in Cancun. While I did originally think that Cancun would be a ghost town in summer (100-degree weather and high humidity) it was packed. Cancun was lovely and temperate and exactly the tropical vacation I was hoping it would be. This was my first time to the Caribbean [...]

The Ultimate USA Multi-Center Vacation It’s no wonder that the USA lends itself well to multi-center vacations. The sheer vastness of the country means that it’s impossible to explore it if you don’t take advantage of multi-stop trips, so that you don’t have to confine yourself to one resort. A visit to San Francisco, for [...]
