Boldly Going

As I sit here, in my geek bar, drinking a Vulcan Red IPA from my Wesley Crusher pint, I reflect on what got me here. It’s the 50th Anniversary of the original Star Trek airing on TV and I have to say without that show my life would have been drastically different. Cliche, I know, but true.

GenCon 2016, the VLog!

This year, I thought I’d do something a little different. VIDEO! *electronic dance thumps*

Keep reading under the video for more about our 2016 GenCon trip 🙂

GenCon was super weird for us this year. For the first time ever not only did we not have roommates, but we had a full on suite! The no roommates was kinda sad to us (we love Crystal and Chad!) but having a dining room and two bathrooms really let us host games without having to hunt the fetid halls for enough chairs together to get a game going.

This year also made me realize just how much I don’t get to game, or relax, on a regular basis. I’d say most of our convention was sleeping. We were THAT exhausted. For the first year ever we never went into the open gaming halls, the second story of the convention center, or really anywhere else besides the dealer hall and Scotty’s. Working 72 hours a week for an extended period definitely took it’s toll. But, that also means you guys didn’t get a lot of the experience via my video! I am sad about that, and plan to rectify that next year.

I hope you enjoy the small glimpse of GenCon I was able to provide! This is seriously about 1/10th of what goes on and if you love gaming, you owe it to yourself grab your dice bag and visit one year.

 

 

Staying Fit on a Boat!

Last week I spent a week at sea, sailing around with all you could eat everything, a Ben & Jerry’s, and $3.95 Johnny Rockets. It would have been incredibly easy to enjoy the week and then hate myself this week. But, I was able to keep myself in check, enjoy a ton of tasty food, and come home with less inches! This is how I did it, and I hope you can, too.
