Yes Robert, I had the same realization a few years ago after spending several hours each day ‘huntin up’ tools on some other part of our little farm. Out in the barn I need the hammer..oh its over at the house. Down in the pasture/garden I needed the shove…oh, its up in the barn. Nope, not there must be over at the house…GAWD! Plus I live in the mountains but I swear, 75% of those hikes were all up hill!
Now I have a cheap copy of each tool I use frequently in all those places where I usually work. I don’t get any more work done, but now I spend my breaks sittin and thinkin rather than hiking all over the mountain side. I may have to join a gym!
