Alright folks. I had a good friend ask how I work knots with one arm. After trying to explain over the phone for a whole 2 seconds, I realized a short video would be the best bet. Enjoy this high quality professional video and feel free to comment below. Take care!
My buddy Jason is on a committee for AECOM, the firm we work for. It’s called Great Places To Work Committee. The committee is headed by fellow employee Alex Rayfield, and support quarterly charities, in addition to other morale activities for the employees. He and I got together and decided to throw a Project Healing […]
These days, I don’t get to fish like I used to. The days of fishing 2-4 days a week after work have been replaced with overtime at work, working a side business, housework, exercising in an attempt to keep up with a slowing metabolism, and being a father and husband. The weekends are reserved for more […]
The last and final day of my Healing Towers adventure. What a trip. There were so many firsts and so many memories made. I woke up so excited to be on my journey back to my family. And of course to show everyone the hundreds of pictures taken. Ed and Cleave had an early flight out, but mine […]
We woke up on a little later this last day. Since we were docked and in no hurry, the usual anchor motor alarm was on snooze. Ed, Cleave and I all got up at the same time and headed up the steep and intricate stair path leading from the dock to Healing Towers. We got slapped […]
I woke up before Garry cranked the anchor on this day. I didn’t really sleep much due to the halibut we hadn’t found from the day before. I felt robbed. It sucks when you do everything right and things still just don’t work out, but that’s how things go sometimes. Garry wanted to look for […]
This is just a quick post on a really great opportunity we were fortunate enough to have happen. It seems like so many great things have been happening to us at DDO lately. We are so thankful for that. Bob Grebe, of Fox 21/27, recently met up with me to learn a little about Dead […]
Day 5 of the Healing Towers trip started like I’d always imagined Alaska to be. First thing you see when you wake up is a big ol’ grizzly. It was digging for clams during low tide, and I was kind of captivated by the whole process. It was just a cool thing to see. I […]
Last year, I was invited by the folks at Orvis to participate in the Go Outside Festival at their tent. The event, which started in 2011, is aimed at representing all of the outdoor recreation activities available in the region. It has taken off, to say the least.
Recently, I met up with Heather Hutzler of Daytime Blue Ridge. It’s a live local show hosted by Heather and Natalie Faunce about entertainment and lifetstyle in Southwest Virginia. Let me say that again. Live. I’m okay with interviews and such, but they’ve historically been taped and edited. Never live. So when I got the […]
Day 4… Up to this point, breakfast had consisted of bacon and eggs or breakfast bars. But as you may remember, the day before we were blessed with a nice pile of dungeness crabs. Yep, that’s right. Garry, who by the way got his start in the restaurant industry, made something I’d never experienced before. I’m […]
Day 3 of the Healing Towers trip began with the same terrifying motor wake-up. I was slightly more prepared this time. We made our way to the coffee maker as Garry continued his many tasks, moving around like a squirrel gathering nuts. After everything was set up, we threw out a couple crab pots, hopped in […]
