Knife Safety with my son and a Case knife Reunion

brian Gear, Sponsored Post Leave a Comment

Share me!So, my son is starting to get a little bit older now…. Obviously.  I think it’s about time for him to start learning some responsibilities with some of the things that I had as a kid. This all started a few months ago, when he and I went target shooting.  He had asked me about “shooting guns”.  I taught him the basic rules of gun safety,  quizzed him a bit,  and then we went to our makshift range out  back.  Although …

brian Camping, DIY, Teardrop Camping Leave a Comment

Share me! This is the first video in a series where I’m going to cover, from start to finish, with videos, how to build your very own teardrop camper. Let me first say that this is in no way the only way to do it, this is just the way I’ve done it and I am happy with the results. My videos are going to cover the majority of the build, but the notes and all below will show some …

brian Camping, DIY 2 Comments

Share me!Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that among other things, we really like to camp. Part of our camping adventure is that I built our Teardrop (ish) camper that we currently camp in. I started a series of posts a while back that covered the what and how of our camper build.  Y BUT. I have decided to take this a different (AND MUCH BETTER) direction.  So this will be the …

New on Netflix for August 2016 #StreamTeam

brian Family, Sponsored Post, Tech, The Kids Leave a Comment

Share me!Well, so one thing lead to another and I haven’t posted much about Netflix lately. To be honest, I haven’t had a lot of time over the summer to watch much TV.  Myself and the wife started in on House of Cards a few month ago and for one reason or another haven’t had time to binge watch it much lately.  I can say it wasn’t for a lack of interest.. It really make me wonder how much is …

brian random thoughts Leave a Comment

Share me!In case you missed it today, Facebook came out with a new set of interactions on posts, or “reactions” as they have come to call them. I’m totally bummed out that there still isn’t a “dislike” button. This is ironic, since I would say 99.9999% of the dislike that happens in the world originates from stuff that we read on Facebook. So, I thought I would change things up a bit and give my take, or should I say, …

A Good Butt Rub and some Smoke on the Grill

brian Cooking, Stuff at Home Leave a Comment

Share me!I thought I would do a quick post/recipe to show some of the mad cooking abilities of my Vision Kamodo Grill. I like to cook. No doubt, whether its the stove, on a camping trip, or on the grill, I like to put the fire to the meat and make it happen. I wrote this post a few months ago and talked about my kamodo grill and the who, what, why on why I purchased one. I was REALLY …

Make sure your Shopping at Walmart Includes a #StraightTalkWishList This Year

brian Sponsored Post, Tech Leave a Comment

Share me!Although this post is sponsored my Straight Talk, the opinions are 100% my own and are completely honest. As luck would have it, we have a Christmas party at work tomorrow. In true dad rambling fashion, I have waited until the last minute to come up with the perfect batch of cookies and the right hor d’oeuvres for the occasion. Crap. So, I find myself in the store and don’t know what to buy, how much to buy, or …

Netflix Releases and Updates Nov 2015 #StreamTeam

brian Sponsored Post, Tech Leave a Comment

Share me!Disclaimer:  Although this post is sponsored by Netflix, all opinions are 100% my own.   We call our son the “car salesman” because he can talk anybody into anything (or try his hardest at least). Prime example: bedtime tonight (or shall I say EVERY night?) He has always been a bedtime procrastinator, and is pretty good at it, with all of his excuses: “It’s too quiet.” “It’s too loud.” “It’s too dark.” “It’s too light.” But now that he …
