So if your wildest dreams became your resolute goals and your resolute goals were brought to reality, then I guess you'd find yourself amongst many places, sitting on a beach 5,000 miles away on the North Shore of Oahu. Aloha 2018. Looking forward to continuing to close that gap every day in 2019 and the adventures that come from it 🤙

Not all who wander are lost--A year ago I packed two bags and left town. My plan to tackle the Pacific Northwest Coast, created over two weeks, etched out on paper. I had 9 days, San Francisco to Seattle, with a litany of various stopping points and a rough timeline for them. I still find myself reflecting on the trip. To be honest, it feels like a dream in another life. Ensconced along the West Coast, I left the Golden Gate in the rear view via US-101 N, up to the sepertine Route 1. Day and night through the mountains and forests. Riding nature's roller-coaster, wheel firm in hand, I arrived at the Redwoods. I never felt so small as when I walked with these giants, the eerie and absolute silence. They were the guardians and I was reminded that I was a visitor. To this day I still can't fathom the surreality of the Pacific Northwest Highway. The Oregon Coast, what treasures you hold. In Eugene, I ate at the table of an artist, an itamae and no matter what your dietary needs, you would be satisfied in Portland. I reached Seattle weary but triumphant. Seattle had the vibrancy you wanted in community, from fish flying at Pike's Place Market to the ardor of the 12th man. Meanwhile wilderness resided just outside your doorstep. I could live here, I thought. I was following a dream and this trip changed my life. I'm often asked, did you ever get lonely? The short answer, no. I enjoyed it and found myself invigorated by most of it. Undoubtedly however, I believe we naturally grow weary of the constant unknown and unaccustomed. A familiar face and place, is comfort and ease. I knew my destination had friends waiting but for 7 of those days it was a test of stepping out of my comfort zone. Adventure is a beautiful thing, you can make it as little or as big as you want. But adventure is a choice, many times an exercise of courage. Tolkien wrote, "It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to." There is a brilliance to letting yourself go. I was awakened, let go of regret, dismissed concern, and lived. I learned a lot about myself during that time.

A car tells a story. Every roadtrip a chapter. Every mile, every day, words and sentences filling the book. It represents where we are in life and can take us where we dream to go. Take care of it and it will take care of you as you grow together. I was nine months fresh out of college when I bought my jeep. My first adult purchase, the American dream. It represented an expression of existential freedom. The car was a new generation no frills-base model, but that didn't matter because it was mine. It was raw and had all the potential in the world, not unlike myself and most postgrads at the time. The compass was always toward the horizon, countless treks across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Nearly 100k miles later, we've journeyed through the Adirondacks and Berkshires. Admired the green mountains of New Hampshire and wide pastures of Vermont. Experienced the forests and farmlands of CT, flying down I-84 and the Merritt. Embraced the beautiful coastal beaches of MA and RI. We've seen Freedom Tower and Manhattan in sun dazzled brilliance. Further south, the vast sweeping New Jersey shores. We've seen watercolor sunrises and sunsets. Trudged through blizzards and torrential downpours. Innumerable midnight rides back home, windows wide open to keep eyes from closing. Have you ever driven over a 5 foot wall of snow with vehicle and man still in one piece or rode the dirt road less traveled, literally and figuratively? We've taken it all on. The carpet littered with the sand of at least 20 beaches and likely the crumbs of 500 donuts. The console polished with coffee, tea, and every postworkout shake. The speakers broken in from east and west coast hip hop, Snoop and Dre to Biggie's Brooklyn laid back flow. Summer heatwaves complimented by the warm chords of a ZBB island country guitar and so many others. If a car had a voice it'd groan after all the personal renditions it has heard. Those are all things you never forget. They say a dog is man's best friend while I dont disagree, I believe a car isn't far behind. Goodbye old friend, I hope someone else finds the same happiness and adventure I found with you 🤙 #jeep #jeeplife #jeepgrandcherokee

No doubt for many of us Veterans Day has new significance since last July. Thank you for your service and to the so many others that have sacrificed their lives to protect freedom in this country. Your memory is not forgotten. #neverforget @just_in766

Recently I find myself captivated with how the spark of an idea becomes a moment like this one. I reflect on the individual steps that brought me there. It is the reason I love not only the adventure but the pursuit of it as well. I've found few things more invigorating than when the first brushstroke of a thought strikes onto the canvas of the imagination. From there, ideas flourish, with each stroke of continued inspiration. I believe one of the most remarkable things is how with the right initiative, that initial thought can turn into one of the most memorable moments of your life. Over time, the reward is unparalleled. That's where I want to not only live...but THRIVE. Wherever the brush finds concept, story, and passion, that is my itinerary. I'll always admire the view at the end, but to me it's the journey that tantalizes.

Castaway --Ten days ago I landed in Oahu after what seemed like the longest two flights of my life. I was welcomed by an open-air airport and a managerie of colorful shirts and leis. Known as "the gathering place" by many, it seemed fitting. After a week, I don't think it could have a better designation. A melting pot of cultures from the east and western worlds, if you don't recognize it in the people you will surely find it in a plate of Loco Moco, fresh poke plate, and/or POG juice (passionfruit, orange and guava). I found no matter where we went, what adventure we took, high and low we were encompassed by clear seafoam green waters abundant in life and lush green mountains. Violently chiseled ridges protruding from the earth's surface, a sculptor's masterpiece. Most days the volcanic ash and clouds obscuring the summits, but when exposed, the visual only can be described as majestic. Pictures do not do it justice, it is a place like no other. The rain or sunshine --as predictable as your next meal. The island is a foodie's celebration, hiker's thrill, surfer's paradise, snorkelers/scuba divers dream, a farmer's rejoice or the backdrop to strum one's ukulele. It has something for everyone. I am sad to leave it but I am ever so grateful to have shared it and for the people I've been able to add to my ohana. For now, Aloha until the next time and Mahalo for the experience 🤙 P. S. Thank you @atiltrip & @maria_leineweber for making me feel at home all week. Mahalo @hauikana for the lodgings, if you need somewhere to stay his studio is a little paradise!!
