We all have a certain style of doing things. Lets face it we all want to be different. It’s not in us to be the same as the person next to you or the person that preceded you. You want to put your own stamp on your legacy. You want to set yourself apart from the pack. You want to be 1 out of million to do something bold, daring, or different! You want to be you and that’s alright. You should want your own style, routine, or work ethic. If you didn’t then how would Apple have started or Microsoft? They didn’t want to conform to the norm. They wanted to set themselves apart from the rest and be 1 out of million! Be you! Be [insert your name here]! Read More
Have you ever heard of the phrase K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Stupid? Sounds kind of rough and mean at first, but when you think about the meaning of the phrase it makes sense! Keep It Simple Stupid. How many times have you planned something and got to the end of it and realized there was a better way to do it or you’re rushing around trying to get all of it done and you take a minute to catch your breath and realize: “I’ve over complicated this!” It happens. We want to show everyone that we can do it and we can do it better then the last person! Read More
As a visitor you have the opportunity to observe other cultures. Whether your a visitor from another town, state, or country when you visit somewhere there are always customs, routines, and traditions different from yours. This is were you get to sit back and observe how these new, and maybe strange, people interact with one another. Day in and day out you get a feel for their culture. You start to find out all the ins and outs of their lives. You start becoming another person and the name tag of visitor begins to wear off. Read More
Do you remember those love shows where they had wither a guy or girl and 3 suitable matches for them to choose from? They weren’t allowed to see the matches but they were allowed to ask questions to determine which guy or girl they will choose in the end. In a way they’re playing Eenie Meenie Miney Mo. What a great way to choose a suitable match… eenie meenie miney mo catch a suitable match by the toe. If he or she hollers let them go. Eenie meenie miney mo! Read More

All hands on deck… man overboard! Nothing is more frightening or terrifying then hearing the words “man overboard”. Something happened to someone and now they have fallen over the side of the ship – floating hopelessly in the waters awaiting rescue. Hopefully someone saw the sailor fall into the great vastnesses of the ocean. In the few minutes he or she has, the crew has to join together, get the ship turned around, and come along side the distressed sailor and pluck him/her from the oceans icy death grip! Read More
Did you ever have a role model? Do you still have a role model? Someone to demonstrate the way to live, act, carry yourself, etc. Someone that is a public figure or someone that quietly impacts the community without people knowing. Role models are great! While most kids wanted to be like Brett Farve and Michael Jordan. I wanted to be like Scott Byerly aka the God Father of wakeboarding. To me he exemplified everything I wanted to be in high school – a leader in his sport, unique, different, thought outside the box, etc. We all have or had role models and they helped shape us into who we are today.

I have this saying when I go on trips with my Uncle Rod: ”Uncle Rod… when I go on trips with you it hurts!” From a very young age I have followed my Dad and Uncle Rod on adventures. If it wasn’t for these two men I would not have been given the opportunities to explore! I can remember the most painful day with Uncle Rod. I was 12 and on a bike packing trip with him and my Dad on the San Juan Islands (strand of islands in the very northwest corner of Washington state). The first day I was trying to keep up with Uncle Rod. It was in the 50′s, that day, light drizzle and we were clipping along at 18 to 20 miles an hour. Long story short… my 12 year old legs bonked and fast! All this to say, if I hadn’t followed these men into life’s adventures were would I be today? Read More
With all the weather we’ve been having, these past couple days in the Midwest, we thought it fitting to talk about Mother Nature. People often refer to nature as Mother Nature or Mother Earth. When they talk about it in this way they are referring to the land, air, and sea taking care of them as would a mother. Providing refuge from the storms, filling their stomachs with good food when they are hungry, and warming their souls when they are down. They also talk about respecting it… don’t pollute or trash the earth that gives you life! Read More
