  • How to Select The Right Tires for Off Road Driving

    It might be obvious – big knobby tires are better at gripping rugged surfaces than smooth ones. After all, you wouldn't put a pair of racing slicks on your truck and take it out on the trail, would you? The reality though is that for most of us, the right choice of tires is more about balance than absolutes. That's why I really like this set of Grabber A/T X that General Tire sent me to check out.

  • Does Your Connected Home Plan Include an Emergency Alert Button?

    One of the things that I love about Connected "Smart Home" Technology today is that it's finally starting to move beyond the enthusiast market. Today's technology is practical and affordable to a level that is finally starting to be useful. While I enjoy technology to make life easier in my own homes, the benefits to helping our parents continue to be as independent as possible is even more exciting. We recently talked with some folks at ATC Alert who sponsored this post and asked us to share our thoughts about the subject with you guys.

  • How to Help Prevent Aquatic Invasive Species from Spreading

    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.

  • What Is Your Prostate and Why Is it Important

    Last month, I turned 41 years old and with many of my friends in our 40s now there are all sorts of new conversations that I once thought were only for "old people". Prostate health is one of those topics, but it really should be something that even younger guys are aware of beyond the dreaded "prostate exam" that can come as a surprise the first time your doctor decides to check it. Despite the uncomfortable nature of the conversation though, it's important that men of all ages consider the importance and a healthy prostate and do what we can to avoid and/or cope with prostate cancer. 

  • Motorola Pulse Escape+ Perfect for an Active Guy Who Travels

    In an age dominated by expensive headphones costing hundreds of dollars, it’s easy to forget that at the end of the day – headphones need to feel comfortable, sound good, and look good, too … but they also need to be affordable.  Motorola Pulse Escape+ headphones are exactly that, at only $69.99. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Motorola.

  • Cox Smart Home Enables Freedom, Mobility, and Higher Quality Life As We Get Older

    When I told friends and family that I was invited to go see a smart house configured by Cox Communications with all their awesome Cox Homelife goodies and those other smart home companies, they all asked me if it was going to be like The Jetsons’ home. I had to laugh because many of us still have the Jetsons’ in our heads when we think about smart homes when in reality it is not that extreme and much more interesting. While there were gee-whiz experiences such as the ability to travel the world through VR and personal helper robots, it's exciting to realize that these things are all here today and able to help make our lives better as we age.

  • How do Night Driving Glasses Work?

    You've seen the commercials, you've probably even laughed at the concept of wearing "sun glasses at night" but how do these yellow tinted "Night Drivers" actually work? The folks over at Solar Shield sent us a pair of their Night Drivers to try out, here's what we learned...

  • Why Ethanol is Bad For Your Lawn Mower and Other Power Tools

    I've been a fan of TruFuel for a while now - frankly speaking, it's convenient and less messy than having to mix petrol and oil to make it the right formula for my 2-stroke engine power tools. That was enough for me, I'm generally pretty happy just that something saves me time and energy. What about that third selling point though, the fact that it contains no ethanol. Why is ethanol bad though and how does it actually hurt your engine? Let's take a look...

  • Trak At Home Male Fertility Testing System Does More Than Just Test Sperm Count

    Many of us men aren't really comfortable with medical stuff in general - and when it comes to testing our sperm there's an extra level of resistance. I don't think anyone really wants to go to a doctor's office and jerk off in a closet and the thought of doing it at home and running across town is even more awkward. On top of this, I think most guys naturally assume that fertility issues are the women's responsibility. That's not fair, but that is how our society generally engages with the topic. With Trak though, it does more than just allow you to run an at-home semen analysis to count up your sperm, but also has guidance on how you can improve your count too.

  • Things To Know Before Attending Your First NASCAR Race

    Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend at NASCAR race as a guest of Kelley Blue Book. Over the course of the weekend, I came to realize that like any sport there is a high level of complexity involved in NASCAR that may be confusing to new fans. With NASCAR racing though, I think it gets even more complicated since it all seems so simple initially. So many people think all that it is simply a driver pressing the gas pedal down and turning left. In reality though, there are so many levels of complexity that the races can be fun to watch for new and old fans alike... but with a little help getting started.

  • How To Get Rid of Scorpions from Your Yard

    Scorpions! There are few more creatures that inspire fear more than these little guys, but there are a few things that you can do to help fortify your house and yard against them. 

  • Exploring the Spirit of Khortytsa Vodka on a Tour of Ukraine

    As much as I enjoy a great cocktail or sipping a fine spirit, it's the people, culture, and history behind the product that I enjoy even more. I think that's generally why I haven't been as big of a vodka fan as I am passionate about Whiskey and Tequila. That changed recently though when I was invited by Khortytsa Vodka to tour Ukraine with them and learn more about the people and culture behind their vodka.
