(September 17, 1939 – January 12, 2023) One of my first posts on this platform was about Pop-Pop Bowe… it’s been awhile since I’ve written another post and this certainly wasn’t the one I expected to bring me back, but unfortunately it has. I’ll try to keep it short and sweet, but like Bowie, Mom-Mom … Continue reading Janet “Mom-Mom” Bowe
As most of you know by now, me and Leen are officially engaged. I know, I know… its about damn time. I’ve been asked roughly a million times over the past six years when I was going to pop the question. Well, I finally did and this is how it all went down. It all … Continue reading The Proposal… #Finally!
Did I compete in an Ironman? No. Hell no! But my dad did and that is a huge reason why we planned this trip to Florida. For those of you that don’t know what an Ironman is, it’s a triathlon that consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 … Continue reading Turns Out It’s A 9+ Hour Drive From Panama City Beach To Miami… Who Knew?
This whole thing started coming to fruition when Vini’s band, In The Presence Of Wolves, announced their upcoming full length US tour. Leen and I talked about trying to surprise Vini and the band at their show in Los Angeles, but as the date got closer, it just wasn’t working out. One, it was too … Continue reading Nashville: The 18 Hour Adventure
As most of you know, one of my biggest hobbies (outside of traveling) is wiffle ball. I’ve been playing pretty much forever, but myself, Ian Crosby, Mike Baumhauer, & Brett Poulton started, the now world famous, Way Too Beautiful. Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but its legit. Across all of our social media platforms … Continue reading Way Too Beautiful (2018)
Forgive me for the long post, but it was a wild weekend! The planning for Kev’s (Butchy) bachelor party started back in November. Three idea’s were thrown into the mix. Jamaica, Clearwater for Spring Training, and Kentucky for bourbon tasting. All of them were great ideas, but seeing as though I had never been to … Continue reading Butchy’s Bachelor Party – Kentucky Bourbon Trail
Ah, another year of Spring Training. I’ve been going to Spring Training since about 2008. Not every year, but almost every. One year I missed because I decided on going to the Dominican Republic instead and last year we unfortunately had to cancel our plans due to Pop-Pop Milsted becoming very sick. He is the … Continue reading Spring Training (2018)
What is a Mummer you ask? I’ve been a part of the Mummer’s Parade for the past 3 years now. (From left to right: 2016 parade, 2017 parade, 2018 parade) This year however, I was also able to attend something even more special than the parade. Leen’s uncle, Ron Weber (who is a very active … Continue reading Mummer’s Hall Of Fame & Wench Brigade Banquet
While sitting on my flight to Tampa recently, I read a quote in the Southwest magazine. The quote said, “Every person has his or her unique story, and I love that about travel.” Couldn’t agree more! I’ve met a lot of amazing people in my travels and am still great friends with some of them … Continue reading Thin Blue Farce
A few days prior to the Bert Kreischer stand-up, my friend, Brett, told me that he had an extra ticket and asked if I wanted to go. The show was at 8pm on a Thursday night (February 22, 2018), but that didn’t matter. Bert is one of my favorites so there wasn’t a chance I … Continue reading Bert Kreischer’s Secret Time Netflix Special
