Unfortunately taking photos through the window of a moving car is among the most challenging shots to take but with a few quick tips, you can make sure that your shots look great!

  • Iceland Mancation Ideas

    At a certain point, the standard golf trip gets sort of boring and you start looking for a new adventures with the guys.

  • Here's How You Can Travel Like a Millionaire This Summer

    Bucket-list experiences don't just have to be for the rich and famous. Most of these Instagram celebrities you see don't actually own those yachts and planes you see them on either. However, being in the "it crowd" feels good and has a tendency to open doors that others simply can't imagine. Think of it this way, where better to find a group of people with private yachts than in a marina that you just pulled into in the yacht you chartered for vacation? Let's take a look at some ways you can build up a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous experience, without having to win the lottery!

  • Arkansas Delta Food Finds Worth Traveling For

    One of my favorite parts of traveling to a new area is trying new foods and traditions around dining. What I found while visiting the state, sponsored by Arkansas Tourism, frankly was confusing and exciting at the same time. While I expected BBQ and soul food, what I found alongside those staples was completely unexpected such as cheese dip, fried tamales, and chocolate gravy!

  • What Are the Best Canadian Cities to Move To?

    It seems to be a hot topic these days among my friends. There's a feeling that our "United States" may be beyond repair and it's time to seek greener - or at least snow covered pastures living among our neighbors to the north. Between the stunning scenery, forward-thinking culture and diverse climate, there's no reason to not want to settle down in Canada. Whether you're a native Canadian or you're looking to call the Great White North home, you have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to finding a safe, fabulous place to raise a family.

  • Exploring the Sights, Tastes and Sounds of Eastern Arkansas

    When I first shared with friends that I was heading to Arkansas, the first thing most people asked was, "Why? What's there?" Honestly I didn't really know what to expect aside from some music history and hopefully some good BBQ. After spending four days in the Delta region I can't wait to go back.

  • Interview with Bob Chambers from Generali Global Assistance

    Many travelers find it easy to dismiss "travel insurance" and choose to roll the dice hoping nothing will go wrong. Unfortunately, stuff can and does happen beyond your control that can wreck your journey. The more I talk with the people behind the policies though, it becomes clear that they are people like you and I that just want to go out and explore new places and bring back amazing stories each time they travel. 

  • Extreme Adventures Every Guy Needs to Do

    Summer is almost here and like most of us, I'm sure you are starting to plan your vacation schedule for the upcoming months. Really though, why limit yourself to just the summer months? There are adventures you can take all year round, so it's time to make room in your schedule and change some preconceptions you might have about your travel schedule!

  • Tips to Make Sure Your First RV Trip Is Perfect

    Nothing is more Americana than cruising across the country in an RV. For decades, families and groups of friends have gone on epic journeys that don’t involve checking luggage and waiting in long security lines. Instead, an RV gives you the freedom of the road and all the possibilities you may come across along the way.

  • Sleepcation Ideas and Destinations For Relaxing and Getting Great Sleep

    When most of us plan vacations, we're focused on seeing tons of awesome stuff and a go go go schedule. However, there's a different sort of vacation that can be equally great. I guess you could call these ideas a "sleepcation" and that's OK! Your body needs a chance to relax an recharge, something that is increasingly more challenging in our modern life where we're surrounded by electronic devices and distractions that keep us up late and wake us up early.

  • Ten Reasons Why Guys Love a Viking River Cruises Rhine Getaway

    I tend to be a major advocate for a cruise lifestyle. Simply put, I LOVE the experience of being on a boat, but I know a lot of guys who aren't convinced that a cruise is for them and not every line or itinerary is. However, last fall I had the chance to explore the Rhine thanks to Viking Cruises and I still can't believe how many opportunities there are for guys to have an amazing time on this route!

  • Four Days in The Desert Celebrating Baseball With Toyota

    Phoenix in the spring is a pilgrimage destination for all guys (and women) that love baseball. There is simply no better place in the world that you can go to experience the pure joy and excitement of the sport unspoiled by commercialism and the pressures of rankings. For a few weeks, it's just about playing the game and seeing some amazing young talent playing their hearts out along side seasoned veterans serving as their mentors. This is a destination that I try to visit each year, so when the folks at Toyota invited me out to celebrate in the sun with them I excitedly accepted.

  • Allianz Travel Insurance Makes Claims Easier With TravelSmart App

    Most travelers assume that their trips will be uneventful, but sadly the more often you travel it becomes increasingly clear that anything can - and will happen. It's just a matter of time before it happens to you and that's why travel insurance is an important thing for you to consider. While insurance won't prevent something from happening, it's your hedge against a bad event being worse than it needs to be. Unfortunately, one of the biggest reasons that many of us choose not to purchase this service is that claims can be difficult to submit and process - especially while traveling, and the money never seems to come in time. After all, when you are traveling and the airlines lose your bag - you want that compensation ASAP, not after you return home. Luckily, companies like Allianz Global Assistance are listening to customers and they have developed a new app to help make things easier.

  • Sites to Explore in Palo Alto California

    Palo Alto is located between San Francisco Bay and Stanford University. It is an interesting place to visit whether you are in the area on business, settling a college student in at Stanford, or enjoying the sights as a tourist. Three unusual places you should not miss in Palo Alto are the Frenchman's Tower, the Pneumatic Tubes at Stanford Hospital, and the Birthplace of Silicon Valley. Before you check out each of these attractions, make sure to check into an innovative and natural hotel that offers an atmosphere and technology that speaks to the style of Silicon Valley.

  • Must do "Guy Things" for the Ultimate Philly Guys Weekend

    Going on an adventure with your buddies is an enticing offer. You've got time away, the friends to go with, but where do you go? What is there to do? Philadelphia has numerous things to offer, from restaurants and bars, to the obvious long list of historical sites. But if you're looking to get away with the boys, Philadelphia also offers a ton of unexpected places and experiences to keep you occupied and happy.

  • Four Reasons to Plan a Reno Guys Weekend Getaway

    Reno has been at the butt of a lot of jokes for as long as I can remember and unfortunately, it's always been "Nevada's Other Casino City". In reality, while the comparisons are easy to make, it's more than just another Vegas and in fact has a ton of personality that is all its own. 

  • Dreaming of a Cutting Edge Smart Home? Take a Cruise With Princess!

    Take away some of the "home" features like a refrigerator that knows when you need more milk and instead, let's focus on the core system that we've all dreamed about. Despite our homes being stuff with IoT devices today, what still separates our "smart homes" from what we see in the movies is the system that runs it all and unifies the hardware, the software, and the brains. No matter if you're using Zigby of Z-wave, no consumer-level smart home today can genuinely call itself smart. For that experience, we're going to have to take a cruise. When Princess rolls out it's OCEAN system later this year, powering the Ocean Medallion, we're finally going to see the potential for smart home technology... it's just going to be on a cruise ship with waiters and crew instead of robots. In fact, this smart ship is so smart it knows that it doesn't even has to use that label :)

  • Tailgate Tips for a Cactus League Spring Training Baseball Game

    Spring Training tailgating is different that football tailgates in the fall. Here, it's more relaxed, more casual and frankly more about hanging out and bonding as guys than it is a showcase of extravagant cooking and over-the-top decorations. Spring Training tailgate parties are special because for most of those in attendance, it's a pilgrimage. It's a time when friends travel across the country to hang out, share stories, and have an amazing experience that will live on as memories for years to come. We just came back from Cactus League Spring Training in Phoenix and here are our tips to make the most of your spring training tailgating experience.

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

    This is an amazing country and I love exploring it by car because it gives you the freedom to explore that flying from one point to the next simply doesn't. It can also be a very inexpensive way to travel if you know how to save money on road trips like I have learned how to do. As someone who travels by car several times each year there's an almost infinite number of travel hacks to save money, but here are my five favorite ones.

  • Rocking Out On The San Andreas Fault Line With Big Wheel Tours

    Among the various geological features of California, none of them can come close to the legendary San Andreas Fault. Unfortunately it's often misunderstood and instead simply feared for it's destructive power. However, after a fantastic Fault Line Tour with Big Wheel Tours I now have a much better appreciation for it.
