10 travel tips.

1. Hang your jacket when seated -- If driving, you should take a couple hangers with you and utilize the hooks in the back so your jacket(s) won’t be pressed and wrinkled when seated.  On a plane – I usually wear my jacket to my seat and then take it off and fold it / store it right before sitting.

2. fold, then roll -- folding your clothing means you're probably going to end up with wrinkles and creases. Wrinkles and creases mean you're either going to havr to iron your shuff, or look like a giant fool. bundle 2-3 items of clothing together, fold them into a rectangle and roll them up. This will cut down on wrinkling and creasing, and actually save space in your luggage. 

3. Shoe Storage -- Underwear, socks, and belts can be rolled up and placed inside your shoes to save space and prevent the tops of your shoes from caving in and losing their shape. I also recommend putting your shoes into bags within your bag, to prevent the soles from dirtying your clothing -- shower caps work perfectly for this purpose.

 

4. Pack light -- If you're telling yourself, “I want to make sure I have some options,” you’re really just being indecisive and convincing yourself it's okay to bring 3 extra shirts, 4 pairs of jeans, and both of your "good" running shoes which means you should probably just bring another bag. Translation: you're being ridiculous. Traveling in style means being able to move around unencumbered just as much as it means looking good while you do it. At most, you should be bringing a duffel and a backpack.

 

5. stay healthy -- as a traveler, your propensity to get sick isn’t just linked to hygiene; you’re also changing your diet, breathing in new air, and, most likely, ditching your exercise routine. Pack vitamins to keep your immune system on track, and running shoes so you can still go for that morning jog. Ask the flight attendant for a full bottle of water, rather than having to beg for refills in that tiny plastic cup. 

6. playlists -- make sure you've got some killer jams to pass the time while you fly or drive. If you're going to be driving through nature, make that playlist cater to the scenery like a soundtrack. Not only will you enjoy the music, but the music will make you enjoy the scenery and experience even more. If you need help with this, ask us and we'll make sure you're covered. 

7. Be Flexible -- give yourself some cushion between planned activities instead of trying to cram a millon things into one day. Don't underestimate how tired you may be, and don't force it. This is a vacation, so give yourself some time to take it all in, relax, and enjoy it. If you see something incredible that you just can't pass up, allow yourself the flexibility to move things around and explore. This will cut down on stress, and allow you to really enjoy your trip(s). 

8. Sunglasses, breathmints, and wet wipes -- just trust me on this one.

9. Dress well -- "Opportunity awaits the traveling man who dresses in style." Seriously, they don’t offer that unexpected opening in first class to a man who looks like a bum. Unless you're traveling to Sportstown, USA, where they wear running shoes and mesh shorts all day everyday, you should look good, and dress appropriately to your surroundings. 

 10. Travel Often. Travel with the right people. Have fun. Make it memorable.

mint bands still...

I've moved twice in the last year, which means I'm still randomly coming across things I'd put somewhere and forgotten about. Found my mint bands from over a year ago and...

they still smell amazing!!! are you kidding me? Over a year and still glorious? Still filling the air with phenomenal scent! Sniffing one is like waking up on top of a mountain. For $2.99, these little guys are well worth your money and sooo much cheaper than cologne. Buy them. Buy them all. Buy all the mint bands.

Click here to visit the mint bands site and buy them all.

you should be able to save your own life: five fitness benchmarks.

The art of manliness put out this little article and it's kind of awesome. I mean, as you start getting older, you need to put your fitness goals into perspective. Accept the fact that you'r enot going to be Mr. Universe, and therefore, don't need to be able to benchpress 500 pounds. You're not going to be an Olympic distance runner and probably don't need to be able to run two marathons back to back. Your biceps probably don't need to be bigger than your waist and you probably don't need to be taking 12 supplements to get you jacked.

Let's take a step back into reality and focus on some basic skills that could potentially help you save your own life someday.

Every Man Should Be Able to Save His Own Life: 5 Fitness Benchmarks a Man Must Master

In 1926, strong man and physical culture enthusiast Earle Liederman wrote a book calledEndurance. In it, Liederman makes the case that every man should be physically fit enough to save his own life in an emergency. He sets out five fitness benchmarks that indicate whether a man is up to this task. None require you to be able to bench press 500 pounds or have six pack abs. Rather, the benchmarks focus on having the strength and endurance to run, swim, or pull yourself to safety. If you’re looking for a fitness goal, the five fitness benchmarks Liederman lists are a good place to start.

“Every man should be able to save his own life. He should be able to swim far enough, run fast and long enough to save his life in case of emergency and necessity. He also should be able to chin himself a reasonable number of times, as well as to dip a number of times, and he should be able to jump a reasonable height and distance.

A man should be able to...

Swim at least half a mile or more

 

Run at top speed two hundred yards or more

 

Jump over obstacles higher than his waist

 

Pull his body upward by the strength of his arms, until his chin touches his hands, at least fifteen to twenty times

 

Dip between parallel bars or between two chairs at least twenty-five times or more

 

...If he can accomplish these things he need have no fear concerning the safety of his life should he be forced into an emergency from which he alone may be able to save himself.”

Better get started on that new fitness regime.
