Smoky, Spicy, and Extra Chunky Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe
The other day I was wandering around my local grocery store trying to figure out what to buy for lunch. I was hungry and creative - a combo that tends to be expensive for me. As I wandered through the sauce aisle I realized that nearly every time I buy a bottled sauce I'm disappointed in the flavor, thickness, etc. So I thought to myself, "why can't I make a sauce that matches exactly what I love?" While this sauce ended up turning out great and was ultimately "wife approved", sometimes the journey of creation is exciting in itself. You can always learn from your mistakes, adjust the proportions and make things distinctly YOURS!
Historical Road Trip Destinations for Understanding Race in America
Race is a difficult topic to explore for most Americans and for far too many people, the word is a trigger that raises barriers that put people in a defensive position where they pretend things didn't happen. As someone who travels constantly, I've learned that this isn't just an American reaction - it is a human one. As I travel I must be open to my views challenged as I experience new things. By talking with different people I've been blessed to see, hear, touch, and taste a lot of different perspectives. Combined with my love of history, experiences like this have given me better context to understand complex issues. Even more so though, it has given me the understanding that most things have many sides. I encourage each and every one of you to make an effort to open your minds, visit sites like these and simply take the time to listen, learn, and explore history when you do.
Ultimate Mac and 11 Cheese Recipe!
The trouble with going to other people's BBQs is that you can't be "King of the Grill" since it's their domain, but that doesn't mean you can't be king of the table and win bragging rights by having the biggest, baddest dish that everyone will be talking about next week at the office. Sure, anyone can bring "mac and cheese"... for goodness sake, it comes in a box and even college kids can make it. Let's dress this up a bit and make something that everyone will want a piece of.
How to Plan a Vegas Bachelor Party (and not piss off the bride)

Simply put, there is no other place on earth with all the things for a perfect bachelor party like you will find in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, with opportunity comes the chance for danger and too often when you think "Vegas Bachelor Party" the image of topless dancers and dangerous debauchery comes to mind, but there's more to Vegas than that. You can still have a great time and send your buddy out in style without pissing off the bride (too much).
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.

Tips For Purchasing a Used Motorhome
It's the middle of winter and you probably have some friends who headed south to avoid the ice and snow up north. For retired guys and those who are self-employed and can work remotely, the idea of becoming a snowbird is a pretty attractive dream.

Just like with a car - the moment you drive it off the lot your purchase begins to depreciate. Here's what you need to know to make that used motorhome purchase a smart one!

12 Awesome Uses For Duct Tape On a Fishing Trip
Everyone knows that plain ol' duct tape is a must have for any adventure, but how much do you really think about it? I was talking with some of my buddies about this and so we came up with some of our top ways to use duct tape on a fishing trip.
The first thing to think about though is that not all duct tape is created equal. Prior to being contacted by the folks at T-Rex Tape, I would just go to the store and buy whatever was there. I didn't care about colors or features - I just wanted "duct tape" because it was a sort of miracle product that was good for everything from well, sealing holes in your duct work in your home to helping to get rid of warts on your fingers. I always have a roll in my bug-out bag that I bring with me on the trail for off road trips, in the car along with emergency supplies for a road trip, and of course when I go out fishing too.

Pickup trucks are useful things to have around. Especially heavy-duty trucks like the Ram 2500. This big, burly, towing machine has a maximum tow rating of 17,980 pounds (about 9 tons). So when Ram Truck asked us if we wanted to test drive their 2018 Ram 2500, we immediately started looking around to find something to tow. Anything larger than a jet ski or a teardrop camper would do. We ended up with a huge pontoon boat and a fun day on the water with the Wyoming Air National Guard!
