Thule Crossover backpack will swallow anything you insert

I travel a lot. So much so that I try to not think too much about it and count how many days I spend away from home.  I’m going to download this list of what I consider to be key “must have’s” on any travel.  Whenever you travel away from home for business or pleasure, […]

Junuh Finding His One True Authentic Swing

“Yep… Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing… Somethin’ we was born with… Somethin’ that’s ours and ours alone… Somethin’ that can’t be taught to ya or learned… Somethin’ that got to be remembered… Over time the world can, rob us of that swing… It get buried inside us under […]

The Family out exploring Colorado

I can happily say that I was fly fishing the South Platte River in Elevenmile Canyon when my iPhone took a bath.  I was casting towards a few dozen hungry trout.  In my excitement to get the dry-fly cast just right, I slipped and dunked into the river just enough to immerse my wader chest […]

I’m going for it. I’m going to just ask. What’s the worst thing they could say? No? This is the conversation I had with myself just prior to walking into my local neighborhood bike shop to ask the owner if I could work for him for a day-for free. A few years ago after reading […]

Pacific Ocean meets Columbia River

It’s difficult some days to know the way to the right path. It’s a challenge to know what the effect is of the conversation I just had with an employee.  I used a coaching and sports analogy to attempt to communicate my idea.  But maybe I just sounded like another chowder-head using a sports analogy.

Scooter Hero's

Scooters in Denver I never play enough, but when I do it’s usually pretty sweet. The irony is that I love to talk about playing but I actually spend more time dreaming about it than actually doing it. Although my play plots low on the line graph for overall time spent each year, I’m told […]

I wish this was the view from my office

When was the last time you got up from your desk and got outside for five minutes before the next meeting? Instead of checking one more email or returning one more phone call, I think you should stand up from your cubicle and go outside. In America we spend most of our time at work. […]
