Reflection of the Past Year

Melissa Welker | MK Ambassador

Today I found myself in the pool, settling into my planned 500m warm up that seamlessly transformed first to 750m, then 1000m, and finally resting at 1500m.  It was one of those days when everything else just melts away and all that is left are the meters ticking away.  Recently someone asked me why I raced.  At the time I came up with a reasonable answer about challenges, sanity and balance.  But today I remembered what keeps me coming back, it’s that moment when all that is left inside your head is you and you let go of everything else.

Swiss Army Knife

This is a video in response to feedback about the inability of a Swiss Army Knife to be opened with a single hand. The Swiss Army Knife is a classic tool and one I recommend for every day carry.

What a Trip…

What a Trip…

Kirk Driskell | MK Ambassador

What a trip to one of Georgia’s hidden treasures.

This was my third hunting trip to Ossabaw Island over the past 15 years with my Grand Father and Father. This years trip was extra special because it was my oldest son Knox’s first big hunting trip. What an awesome ability to have four generations sharing the same passion. A very wise man told me that the memories that last a lifetime are the ones that are the most aggravating to create. A four day hunting trip to a barrier island is just that but worth every minute of the planning, travel and setup. If you think you might need it you better take it with you because it is a long boat ride.

Adventure Recap

Jef Price | MK Ambassador

A few months back I was able to take part in an trip led by J. Rickwald and Lucas Melendez, these two guys backpacked through 6 national parks over the course of 8 weeks. Utah, Montana, California, Oregon… All stops on an amazing journey these two guys had this past summer. Although a back injury ultimately kept me from being able to join them, I was able to report and promote the trip and watch and read about their journey as it progressed. Here’s a link to the site Jon created for the trip, it’s a great adventure I know you’ll enjoy reading about. http://thenext40days.wordpress.com/
