  • How to Protect Your Eyes While Traveling In A Hot Arid Desert

  • How to Buy The Right Boat For Your Lifestyle

  • How To Keep Wine Fresh

    Despite the fact that I love all things wine and enjoy visiting new wineries for a tasting, at home I'm honestly not much of a drinker. As a result, no matter how much I LOVED that bottle of wine at the wine tasting, it's likely that it will be weeks or even months after I come home that it will be opened. Even once opened, sadly there are too many bottles that have gone to waste. I know that I'm not alone in this challenge though, so I thought it might be time to share some wine wisdom. Hopefully this helps save precious wine from being wasted!

  • Preparing a Travel Budget For Summer Road Trips

    Preparing a travel budget is one of the most important parts of being a happy and successful traveler and even though road trips can be less expensive than other travel options, that doesn't mean you don't have to prepare a budget. In fact there are several unique variables here that need to be taken into consideration - not the last of which is fuel price and consumption rate.

  • Comparing Today's Top SUVs and How To Pick The One For you

    It's no secret that the auto industry is extremely competitive and that American tastes are shifting away from mid-sized sedans to SUVs like the Mazda MX-5, Honda CRV, Toyota Rav4, and Jeep Cherokee. What is interesting to me is how similar each of these cars is on paper and price - yet so different in driving experience. It made me step back a bit and think about how I experience cars since rarely do I get a chance to actually compare vehicles directly. Typically we're provided a top of the line model and asked to share our thoughts on it. Through a bit of luck and planning though, I managed to drive all four of these this year and take the opportunity to compare not just their bullet-ed talking points - but what it actually means to someone shopping for the right SUV for their lifestyle.

  • Tips For Traveling With Your Wife (And Still Enjoying The Trip!)

    Happy wife, happy life… or at least that’s what they say. At least once a year, it’s a great idea to take that special girl in your life out on a nice romantic getaway with your partner. For me though the reality is that I travel almost constantly with Heather and we've been all over the country on road trips where we are sitting together for 8-10 hours each day. While I love traveling with her, there’s no denying it’s going to be a different dynamic than a trip with your guy friends, but I find that it brings us together in a good way. Experiencing the world with your wife can be a lot of fun, if you know how to plan it right!

  • Conserving Water and Maximizing Shine with Armor All Ultra Shine Wash Wipes

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Armor All. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Like many other parts of the country, California continues to be under water restrictions and while we've had a lot of rain recently that doesn't mean we can start wasting water again. As a result, my car looks terrible. It has dust, pollen, bird stuff, road grime all over, and ironically even beads of wax left over from my last car wash months and months ago. I've avoided regularly washing my car like I once did because frankly it's appalling how much water is wasted that way. While commercial, automatic car washes are far more efficient with water than washing at home with a hose and bucket, it's still a huge waste of water. That's why I was excited to try the new Armor All Ultra Shine Wash Wipes when they asked me to try them out recently.

  • Tips For Planning Your First Dinner Party

    Unlike some cultures, we don't really have a codified series of "right of passage" rituals, but instead we have a series of events that prove to others that we are ready as an adult to join society as a full member.

  • Reminder - Enjoy Your Drinks in Moderation, Alcohol Has Consequences

    I live in San Diego's Gas Lamp Quarter above a nightclub, it's a fun an exciting place to live but it's also a great study in the negative effects of alcohol consumption. From people tripping over the sidewalk to stupid fights, being drunk just makes you stupid... and that's honestly part of the fun of being intoxicated. I'm not here to tell you not to drink, but let's make sure to enjoy those drinks safely and in moderation.

  • How to Make Your Bedroom Better For A Good Night Sleep

    It should come as no surprise that getting enough sleep is absolutely essential for good health. Without enough sleep, you tend to lack in energy, and it can also impact things like your body’s hormonal balance and your metabolism. Unfortunately most guys I know don't get enough sleep. We live in a work hard - play hard world and unfortunately we don't think about sleep until it's too late. However, when you must cram sleep into as few hours as possible, you had better make the most of that time. Getting enough deep sleep each night is one of the most important components of wellness.
