    $63.00$273.00

    During our first Kickstarter one of our backers put down a challenge in the comments, to see if I could come up with wood from the Methuselah Tree, the worlds oldest living Bristlecone Pine, and the worlds oldest living organism. While there’s no way in hell I would cut down a tree that’s well over 4,000 years old.

When you’re on the Autobahn, behind the wheel and pegging your speedometer out at 150 mph, how fast are you going? The speedometer says 150, but you know you’re going faster than that. Radio carbon dating stops at 50 thousand years. Only thing we know for sure is that these trees were ancient before they died, some 50 thousand years ago.
