  • Men and women generally have different perspectives on almost everything in life. It's natural and it's part of the joy of a relationship as you navigate experiences together using each other's special skills and experiences. However, to keep things fresh and fun it's essential to spend time apart as well. For some couples, this can be a challenge to negotiate since the natural reaction can be, "what? You want time away from me?... do you not love me?". This was and sometimes is the way Heather feels when I want to go and just do my own stuff. However, ultimately I think it's important for both of us to spend time as independent people since that only makes it more exciting when we come back together. Here's some ways you can carve out some me time - alone or with the guys, without having to feel like you are risking damage to your relationship.

  • We were really impressed by our visit to Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, but what we didn't realize is that they have some awesome bachelor party and mancation packages too. While resorts like Casa Velas have unlimited golf packages, they also offer golf and fishing packages, in-room cocktail parties, taco bars, and even Guacamania...

  • We all appreciate the need for keeping our bodies in good health. In truth, the majority of us actively enjoy working out too. Or at the very least, we enjoy the post-workout satisfaction. Unfortunately, finding the time, money, and effort to hit the gym isn’t always easy. Thankfully, there are a number of alternative solutions out there.

  • It’s that happy time of year again. The sun has reared its beautiful head, and it’s time to get friends and family together, fire up the barbecue and bask in the glory of long, hazy days. The trouble is that by the time summer comes, the effects of winter have become increasingly apparent in your back yard. If your yard is more shabby than a show home, and you’ve got a reputation to protect, you’ve come to the right place. 

  • Are you planning on doing some long-distance driving this summer? No matter whether you are going on a family vacation or you need to make a long journey for a business trip, it is important to prepare effectively so that you can ensure your journey goes smoothly and there are not any hiccups along the way. With that in mind, read on to discover all of the tips that you could possibly need to prepare for a long journey.

  • Fishing is one of the most fun sports that I can think of. It’s a great way to enjoy nature and time away from technology while bonding with our brothers and testing our skills against nature. Unfortunately, as people travel farther and farther to enjoy new locations, we are taking invasive species with us. When introduced in new environments, these invaders can wreak havoc on their new environment and potentially lead to the destruction of what once made that area great. Luckily, there are things you can do to help limit their spread and preserve waterways such as Montana’s streams, rivers and lakes for generations to come.

  • Some sporting events take the world by storm. The Olympic games, for instance, send us wild. Everyone from competing countries catches at least some of the action. This event is all about supporting your country. What’s more, the vast array of activities ensures that there really is something for everyone.

  • There once was a time when I looked at cell phone cases simply as something "other people" bought... I didn't need a case, I'm always careful with my phone. Right? Wrong... The reality is that phones today are super fragile and at the same time exposed to all sorts of different dangers from accidental drops to being scratched against keys in your pocket or backpack. That's why it's important to select the right case and not all are created equal!

  • If you love spending your time outdoors during the summers months, the perfect type of adventure might be a camping trip. Camping is a wonderful way to be away from technology and enjoy bonding together outside in the elements and away from modern distractions.

    If you want to plan a great camping trip for your family or your friends this summer, here are some of the essential items you need to pack in your car before you go. With everything on this list, you’ll be sure to have an amazing adventure.

  • For us men, the summer can only mean three things: warm beer, terrible t-shirt tan lines and firing up the grill. But while we can live with the first two spanners in the works, nothing is worse than letting a barbecue bash fall into the realm of disappointing. That’s where we are meant to thrive. It’s where we’re meant to come alive as cooks, hosts, and humans.

  • Star Wars returns with a shallow but fun romp featuring some of its most iconic characters. It probably won’t stay with you for very long, but you’ll enjoy it while you watch it.

  • A lot of us feel that we need to hold up a certain image to the world. As young boys, we are told to be supermen - "real men don't cry" - and other lessons to toughen us up. While I'm strongly in favor of encouraging boys and men to stand up for themselves, tackle obstacles, and generally "be men" about things in life. However, just like few people teach us how to SPEND money vs saving it... few of us ever learned how to know when to ask for help. Instead, asking for help is looked at as a weakness.

  • Honestly, even though I was with a tour group I was a bit afraid to tour Puerto Vallarta at night. Unfortunately Mexico doesn't have the best reputation these days but thankfully I ignored those concerns because I had an awesome experience that was safe, clean, and tourist friendly. While I'm sure that most of you could wander around and explore the Puerto Vallarta food scene on your own - it was so much easier to do with the folks at Vallarta Food Tours who guided us and made everything easy.

  • I absolutely love fishing and some of my best and oldest memories involve sitting in a boat hoping to catch some fish. However, as much fun as it might be to simply sit there and be men while harvesting your dinner - it's essential that we are good stewards of this important natural resource. This is even more challenging when you travel to new areas where you might be less familiar with regulations and are ultimately farther away from your kitchen. However, here are some tips and advice that I've learned over the years to help men be more responsible fishermen when they travel.

  • Garages are wonderful things. So much so that they’re a non-negotiable addition on many a home buyer’s list. Not only do they provide private protected parking, but they also give you the option to expand your living space or even just simply store "stuff". In an age where we’re growing out of our homes like there’s no tomorrow, that’s a sure plus. Unfortunately for those of you who might be looking at that space out back that hasn't been used in ages... watch out! There may be some unexpected surprises waiting for you in there...

  • Majorca (or Mallorca), one of the most visited islands in Europe is located in the Mediterranean sea, to the South East of Spain. This perfect location gives Majorca extraordinary weather that is the envy of most parts of Europe. As the largest of the Balearic islands, it is a prime holiday destination of many Europeans but also a great spot for Americans too. Here's some of the reasons why you should consider the island for your next lads holiday or mancation!

  • Auto insurance can be confusing and there are TONS of options today. The most important thing to remember is that while you probably will never have to use your auto insurance policy, it's still important to shop properly for it. To help with this, here are some tips that you can use to save money on auto insurance.

  • You know how it is; the list of DIY jobs never fades. Instead, there seems to be a new project every weekend. Whether it’s converting the garage or installing new lights; you can be sure there’s always something. So, it should come as no surprise that many of us rush into projects in attempts to get them over with. On the weekend, we might attempt to start and finish something on Saturday so we can unwind on Sunday. However, we should never forget the saying, "Measure Twice... Cut Once!" It's as true today as it was when your grandfather told it to your father, so don't forget it.

  • Coffee is a drink that has transformed the world almost as much as tea. For millions of Americans it is part of our daily routine that gets us started and then powers us through the day. Unfortunately, as coffee has progressed from a relatively cheap and plain black drink and transformed into a gourmet beverage, it's gotten pretty expensive. From speciality coffee drinks to fancy machines in your home - those dollars add up... but we have some ways that you can save money, while still savoring the delicious flavors and aromas.

  • While many Americans sadly might not know much about Morocco - it's cities are legendary... Tangier, Casablanca, Marrakesh, and of course, who hasn't heard of a "Fes Hat"? As the most stable country in Africa and the most wealthy per capita, Morocco has been a tourist destination for generations. As a result, this is a great opportunity to explore some of the most exotic places on earth while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Let's take a look at some of our picks for mancation ideas in Morocco.
