RIP Tom Petty

Posted on

We went to see Tom Petty at the Rose Bowl on 9/27/17 for his final show of his 40 year anniversary tour. Little did we know that he would pass away a week later. I feel so lucky to have Tom Petty’s music as such a big part of my life.  RIP TP

We got the chance to see the Broadway musical Hamilton last night. It was amazing, I’m inspired and want to see it again reside at the Pantages in Hollywood and it was just incredible.

Broken Clavicle

Posted on

On Sunday 9/3, I went down on my road bike after a rider crashed in front of me resulting in me going head first over the handle bars. This resulted in a trip to the ER with a broken right clavicle. Luckily it was a clean break, so no surgery required.

Zion 2017

Year 4 of our Zion/Vegas tradition was a complete success. This year the wives decided to join us and it was a super fun addition. We had a few twists and turns with Mother nature, but this is normal with our trip. We had an amazing adventure.


2017 Thailand Trip

Posted on

It seems like just yesterday when we brewed up our plan for going to Thailand for our summer vacation this year. We just got back last night and am happy to report it was a great success and all we had planned for.

Why do I love Thailand?
The first thing that comes to mind is the natural beauty of the geography of Thailand with its amazing beaches and jungles. This alone is incredible, but layering on the nature of the Thai people who are the nicest most genuine people on the planet makes its so very special. It’s hands down an incredibly welcoming and warm experience wherever you go. Now let’s not forget the weather with the warm Thai breeze and the salty warm/green oceans and Gulfs. This trip we stayed both on the Andaman sea (Indian Ocean) and the Gulf of Thailand both were simply incredible and special in their own ways. The Phi Phi Islands were and are still an complete favorite of mine, but this trip mixing in Chiang Mai with the visit to the Elephants at Patara was incredible. Lastly let’s not forget the incredible cuisine of Thailand. The food is incredible Ka Pow chicken to mango and sticky rice, all very incredible. Finally let’s not forget the prices….wow 60 minute massage on the beach for $8 and incredible food for four $40. The best place ever.
