I have been making my own leather stuff for many years and their is always something new to learn..!   Good leather equipment is very expensive if you buy ready made.  Most of the time "ready made" does not quite "fill the bill" for what you want, the best fit is always the things you make your self. DIY comes with a great sens of accomplishment, that is nearly priceless. 

I have holsters and knife sheaths that have been in service for 40+ years.

Life is not about the destination it is about the adventures along the way.

The thing about travel, is the slower you go the more you see, I have been all over the country, mostly on back roads on a motorcycle.
