Hello Steemit! Let's get this started!

in introduceyourself •  9 months ago

Hey Steemit world! I'm pretty stoked to be a part of this amazing community and movement, so here we go...
My name is Don, I live in northeastern Pennsylvania with my wife, Amber @msvee and our two dogs. I joined Steemit through my good friends @kommienezuspadt and @customnature.

I am a general contractor by trade, but also have my hands busy as a builder of old cars and hot rods, welder, artist, guitar player, junk hunter, and traveler. We've been to a handful of other countries, and 47 of the 50 states (Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Oregon still to go), and hope to round up the last few very soon.

I grew up on punk rock (saw my first show in 1978.) I have played guitar (usually) or bass (sometimes) in a handful of bands, and am in the process of getting another band going very soon. In addition to music, I have been toying around with weird art my entire life, and it seems I never grow up.

We also dig going to car shows and are planning our second trip to Viva Las Vegas in April to see the Stray Cats reunion! We will hopefully be driving our 1949 Plymouth the entire way from PA to Vegas!

Anyway, I will likely be posting a lot about old cars (obviously), our travels, my artwork, some bands I dig, some weird sights and wild junk we find, and other tasty niblets.

Thanks for checking out my intro, and hope to make a bunch of new friends!

Nice intro! I have been here 6 months and haven't gotten 'er done yet. You've got me inspired. Gonna get right on it. You have got to get yourself to Oregon, both to finish your list and because it is the best place in the world (Oregonian, born and raised). Welcome to Steemit. Hope to read more from you.


Hello fellow Steemegonian! Haha, is that a thing? Pretty awesome place if you ask me too.

Welcome, steemit is an awesome platform. Look forward to your post.

It looks like you will be bringing a lot of interesting stuff to Steemit. Followed ya! I saw this on @customnature's feed. That turkey head... um... leg?, though!
I'm from Oregon! One of the rare places you have never travelled.

Glad you finally introduced yourself! 😉

welcome to steemit and cant wait to see more post!

Congrats on making your first Steemit post. I hope you both have fun sharing your adventures here. It’s funny because @kommienezuspadt and I were wondering if your account was active yet.


Yup, finally made it! We have a LOT of travel photos saved up, so I'll definitely be posting a bunch!

What's up Don? Nice to meet you?

What's your favorite punk rock band of all-time?


Wow, hard to pin it down to just one, especially since there are so many sub-genres. How about a handful? I mean, Ramones will always be the godfathers of it all. But, N.O.T.A., Cramps, Hüsker Dü, Naked Raygun, Guitar Wolf, BGK, and Discharge are a few that come to mind as bands I'll never get tired of listening to. How about you?


I'm a big fan of the Ramones. I'll have to check out some of those others. I like it but never got really deep into punk rock (yet). I love exploring all types of music.


Here's a little writeup of one of my favorite bands if you wanted to check out more music...



Def will thanks
