Wood Carving

Wood Carving DonaldJClaxton.com

I’m making revisions to the site based on the changes that happened in my life the last 11 weeks. In the days to come, I will open an online store for balsam fir, maple, and oak crosses, as well as other carvings.  

Tent Camping

Tent Camping by Donald J. ClaxtonMy 8-yo Great Pyrenees and I tell stories and share lessons about tent camping deep in the woods of Marquette County in Upper Michigan. We have so much to share about this experience and as I have time to get to WiFi and electricity, I’m updating the site to reflect changes in my way of life.

Fiction Writing

The Voodoo Hill Explorer Club donaldjclaxton.comI have written three full-length draft novels, the WIP is about four teenage boys who build a treehouse in the woods of their now-closed USAF base in 1977, and they unwittingly build it close to the secret hideaway of a Soviet spy. The book is called The Voodoo Hill Explorer Club based on this street sign and Voodoo Hill, the one-way in and out of base housing in the long snowy winters of the UP.
