Book Review: The Wisdom of Walt

Since I now have more time on my hands, I decided that a big piece of my life was to make sure I never stopped learning. To help with that, I decided that I would read at least a book a month!

Apple Watch Series 3 Review

Yes, I know there are a million out there. But my opinion has less to do with the physical watch (which *spoiler alert* I love) and more to do with how developers aren't making apps for the watch. I’m talking about you @waze, @CharityMiles, @NikeTraining, @ROADiD, and @DisneyParks

Camping Gear Review: The Nube

Today we are talking about my favorite gear for camping, The Nube by Sierra Madre Research!
