2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley

This summer feels like it flew by. Between doing a bit of fishing, driving the kids to outdoor track and field, volunteering at community events, going camping and of course, working, this summer was here and gone before we knew it! But a few weeks before summer escaped us we managed to take a two-some three-day getaway to one of our favorite areas, Hudson Valley, New York.

On the first day we stopped by one of our favorite delis (www.FrancosDeliandPizza.com) in Danbury Connecticut, and on the way to New York we checked out some trains at the Danbury Railway Museum. Continue reading “2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley”


Angry Orchard Visit, Summer 2017

I’m not a beer snob by any means, but over the past few years my wife and I have made an effort to visit and check out the local breweries and wineries. On this particular week (late August 2017) we checked out a relatively local spot, which many of you have probably heard about. We stayed in Hudson Valley and paid a visit to Angry Orchard in Walden, New York.

The entire experience was awesome!

First off, the weather was on point. It was about 78 degrees, not too humid, a calm breeze kept us cool, and the day was mostly sunny. I’m no weather person so I don’t know if the right term is partly cloudy or mainly sunny. Whatever, check out the pictures or video below and you can see just how beautiful the day was.

Sentry BT250 Bluetooth Headphones Review

I love music.

I listen when I’m on the road, editing videos, working out, or listening to podcasts at work. With that said, there’s many headphones for many people, and they all serve different purposes. These headphones serve a specific purpose for me: to use when I’m exercising and don’t want to lug around a smartphone. These are the set I’ve been sticking in my gym bag, and charge once or twice a week.

I workout for about 45 mins 2-3 times a week (trying to lose some girth!) and thats about as long as these headphones go in between charges.

These Sentry Bluetooth Headphones are cheap (under $20 USD), don’t take up too much space, and are easy (intuitive) to operate.

Pelican Protector iPhone Case Review

Pelican Protector iPhone 6/6s/7 review.

If you’re like me, you want to protect your investment/tech tools. As soon as I purchase a new smartphone the next big investment is a protective case.

I picked up the Pelican Protector series for my work phone because of it’s “Military IMG_5007Grade MIL-810G” Standard. Not sure what that means, but it’s supposed to be pretty tough.

Some of the features include Military Grade Drop Protection, a Rugged/Drop (phone landing on its corner/edge) tolerance, and includes a 2-Layer Structural Design.

All that marketing stuff aside, the phone is pretty badass. Continue reading “Pelican Protector iPhone Case Review”

Federal Premium Low Recoil Ammo

Today I’m writing a review on my experience with the Federal Premium Ammunition Low Recoil Personal Defense Ammo.

I picked up a few boxes of these rounds in both .45 and 9mm, as this is the caliber I typically carry.

Federal claims the personal defense (hollow point to prevent unnecessary bullet travel) low recoil rounds img_4910“Significantly reduces recoil.” I can’t confirm whether recoil was indeed reduced significantly. I shot regular FMJ rounds of the same caliber, out of the same gun, back to back, and didn’t notice a ‘significant’ reduction in recoil.

I did notice it was slightly less recoil, but nothing I would boast about. Then again, my sample size was relatively small, as I only shot about 10 rounds in both .45 and 9mm. Continue reading “Federal Premium Low Recoil Ammo”
