Traveling The World & Figuring Out This Little Thing Called Life


  • Started traveling more than ever in 2011, family trips, bike trips, friends trips, camping trips, adventure trips
  • Ask about any trips, any time. There are endless number of stories including a bike being stolen in a foreign country that ended with a gun being pulled
  • Any time you have an opportunity for a trip, even a 3 day weekend leave Thursday after work & return Sunday evening, do everything you can to pull the trigger
