We Visited Bristol for a Preview of Pilot Flying J #BattleAtBristol

Pilot Flying J invited me to the NASCAR spring race at Bristol Motor Speedway so we could learn more about the Pilot Flying J #BattleAtBristol. The cool thing about this is we were granted some pretty cool access to things things most NASCAR fans dream of! We were also able to meet Michael Annett, the driver of the #46 Pilot Flying J car. Not only that but we got to watch the race from his pit box!

Enjoy a Four States View from Your Balcony at Far View Lodge

I've been lucky to stay at some of the nicest hotels in the country recently. Each of them competes to deliver an extraordinary experience with softer sheets, better amenities, and cutting edge technology. Unfortunately for them, it's sometimes simply the location that serves to blow guests away and that's what I experienced during a recent visit to the Far View Lodge at Mesa Verde in Colorado.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows - Spring skiing where legends are made

The 2015/2016 ski season didn’t disappoint. It has snowed practically EVERY weekend on EVERY mountain west of the Mississippi. After many great powder days with my ski/snowboard buddies, we decided to take a spring skiing trip to celebrate such an epic season. Over the past few months, I’ve been revisiting my collection of old ski movies and one resort kept popping up; Squaw Valley Alpine Resort. From Scot Schmidt in The Blizzard of Aahhh’s to the McConkey (R.I.P.) documentary, and countless Warren Miller films, Squaw Valley was always showcased as a resort with great snow, amazing terrain, and a list of accomplished locals to back it all up. I ran the idea past my friends, and flights were booked that evening.

Giant Sculptures, Unique Culture, and Awesome Food in Santa Fe

They say that New Mexico is the "Land of Enchantment" and as it's capital city, you'd sort of expect to have a dynamic and unique place filled with enchantment. Guess what? It is! While I expected to find plenty of fine art galleries and good food I was surprised by just how much fun the city was and that there were other elements that drew me in and make me dream of returning again soon. For instance, along side world-class artisans and galleries of fine art - you'll also find giant sculptures of robots and dinosaurs.

Santa Fe Charm at the Santa Fe Sage Inn

This hotel was booked for us by Visit Santa Fe. One of the things that I love to see is when older properties are renovated - rather than simply leveled to create something with a cookie-cutter design conceived of without any regard for the community. It shouldn't be a surprise that this was the path that the owners of the Santa Fe Sage Inn took, considering the dynamic and unique nature of Santa Fe itself. What on the outside looks like an older motel, has been lovingly restored and updated with a low-frills but comfortable and inviting decor matching the vibe of the town.
