Hi-five to antiques

antiquesGrowing up in a small mid-western town I could always count on scavenging through peoples old junk. To them maybe junk, to me a trip into the past. An opportunity to travel through time and explore the tools that shaped the world into what it is today. I used to love going out with my mom to old towns like Hutchinson, KS and exploring the local antique shops. This past June my mom and I traveled out to her home town Crown Point, Indiana. What an adventure that was going ravishing through the old shops in the town square. This town is so old and outdated I think people are still using telegraph machines. I love it. It just reminds me of a simpler time in my life when things weren’t quite so confusing. Thanks for sharing a piece of your history mom.

You’re guaranteed to get fresh, all natural, organic food. The best part is your helping feed your local economy and you know exactly what’s going inside your body. No preservatives, no GMO’s and no politicians telling you what to eat. So hi-five to farmers markets.

Snowboard Design – Live Ride Sail

60s-Sailor-3Lately I’ve been playing around with this whole snowboard concept. Here’s a new snowboard design that emulates the passion of riding a mountain. To me snowboarding is a very humbling practice. It helps me find balance and clarity. When you’re on the slopes you’re not worried about your bills or any drama that may surround your life. It’s all about finding that rhythm and just cruising through the snow. Your arms are stretched out like a bird and your simply “Sailing” without a care in the world. Hi-five to snowboarding.
