I came up with a horribly wonderful idea. I told my girlfriend, Miss Capra and she said I was crazy! The next 90 days I will attempt to accomplish my goals by executing a step by step plan. It is going to be difficult however extremely rewarding. New Years Resolutions are horse crap because there is no plan. I will use my Best Self Co. Journal to map out my road to success.

Headed to Baton Rouge, LA for some firearms training with Matt Vincent. Needed to do some gear prep. Had a good planning meeting with him. TJ from TG Holsters stopped by to drop off some of the holsters we will be working with this weekend. Got a good training session in doing some deadlifts and Sorinex CMB Snatches for time. Then crushed some delicious Steak seasoned by Tacticalories.
I had a meeting in L.A. to discuss some upcoming projects. Man, what an awesome trip! Christmas Abbott and Chad Ottenbreit were great and just funny as can be. The meeting went well and we are all very excited of the potential ahead. None the less we had a great time getting to know each other. And I was just kidding about the "moving to L.A." part, that's never gonna happen.
I linked up with some old and new friends for a very cool new project. Chad Ottenbreit, Canadian, snow-boarding, baddass owner of EEKOE clothing. And the lovely Christmas Abbott athlete and founder of CA Agency & Crossfit Invoke. We learned new things about each other. Christmas Abbott has STANK FOOT. But, EEKOE's bamboo socks are the solution! These craziest kids made my quick trip to L.A. a blast!
This is when I should have known things were going to go sideways for this trip! I found a place that in my budge and was available. Also! It was only a few short blocks from the Arnold Sports Festival. The lady immediately hit me back and said "Hey, just wanted to let you know that this house is located in a less than desirable neighborhood."
I had the opportunity to make a spontaneous trip to Panama City Beach, FL where I spent my teenage years. Thought it would be a good idea to show you a little bit of my journey and some of the fun you can have in Panama City Beach.
I broke it down into a three part video series. Hope you enjoy and get down there enjoy it for yourselves!
Mount Rainier is a unique mountain within the contiguous United States. No other mountain is as extensively glaciated or has as much prominence. The scale and character of Mt. Rainier is more akin to an Alaskan or Andean peak. The highest trailhead requires the climber to gain 9,000 feet of elevation to reach the summit, as much as from Everest ABC to its summit.
Harsh elements, dangerous creatures, and lethal terrain are just a few of the obstacles the trailblazers and scientists must face- but putting egos aside and working as a team to accomplish each mission may prove to be the ultimate challenge. The stakes are high but the rewards could change the world and science as we know it.
Everything You Need to Know to Survive in Cold Weather
For a lot of people, when they think of “survival,” they think of activities we typically associate with warm weather — camping, fishing, hiking, and the list goes on. Truth be told, most of us are more comfortable in warmer weather, so it’s not surprising that we tend to practice and hone our survival skills during the summer months. This can be a dangerous and even deadly mistake, however, when you are faced with an emergency situation in the winter and find that you haven’t adequately prepared.
Each hour-long episode of TRAILBLAZERS will follow three elite survivalists as they lead separate teams of scientists through some of the most dangerous regions of the world in the search for clues and discoveries that could lead to scientific breakthroughs. From the largely unexplored island of Papua New Guinea, to the Jurassic Park-like jungles of Bolivia and the volcanic landscapes of Ecuador - Gary Humphrey, Nick Koumalatsos and Shaun Keilen represent some of the most elite trailblazers in the world. With decades of combined survival experience between them- do these trailblazers have what it takes to not only survive the harsh elements, but accomplish their mission while keeping everyone on their team safe?
The quest to expand the boundaries of human knowledge takes scientists to the edges of the Earth where unseen peril lurks around every corner. From the deepest and darkest rainforest jungles to the edges of active volcanos, these men and women are searching for answers to some of the world's greatest scientific mysteries. Out of their labs and into the wilderness, they place their lives into the hands of a brotherhood of elite survivalists who are sworn to keep every expedition safe, risking their lives to ensure everybody makes it in, completes their mission, and gets out alive.
