    Molly Mac Gear is up and running at Trouble Ranch

    In 2021 we moved north of Greensboro to Rockingham County. It's a small house on 10 acres, with a shop. It's on Troublesome Creek, so we call it Trouble Ranch on Troublesome Creek.

    The shop is an insulated metal building with power, a cement floor and a wood stove installed by Bubba (not up to code). Since we downsized from a large house, everything got crammed in the shop. Then, a year ago I lost the space I was using for Molly Mac Gear, so it got crammed in with the rest. It's taken me a while to get it organized.

    I put a Class A chimney in the house and the shop. Got a brand new Hearthstone Green Mountain 40 wood stove in the house. Found a 1992 Vermont Castings wood stove and rebuilt it for the shop. We didn't turn the heat pump on once this winter!

    But what made the shop useful is mezzanines. The ceiling is 14'. It's post and beam, with wood posts and steel beams. I put a small mezzanine on one side, and a full length mezzanine on t'other side. Built stairs along the end wall to get up there. I rigged up a 12V trailer winch to make a pallet lift, for getting heavy stuff up there. Got the table and thread injector up there, and started making things again.

    So, finally I will be able to build inventory. I'm happy to make anything I can for folks!

    Thanks for the update! My canvas sock and Molly Mac Backpack are so useful - can't say enough. Glad to hear you are keeping the juices flowing.

    Hey Mac

    Good to hear you are still making the good stuff for specialized use. Maybe we can get together again in the gorge and catch up sometime

    This is great news Mac.
    I own a few of your specialty gear designs and every one of them performs exactly as described.
    Hope to see you soon.

    Molly Mac

    The canvas Molly Mac sock is the best sock for deep cold that I have ever seen used. It is good to see that a few of the old time members are still around. Thanks Mac, it has been awhile. ...Book

    Interesting! I will check out your gear. The only reason I have ever heard of Troublesome Creek is because I just read two books about the book women of Troublesome Creek! Very interesting history. Anyways, can't wait to check out your gear!
