EPIC or IKON? Which Ski Pass Should I Buy?

Epic Ski Pass 2018-19

With winter closing in across the US and lots of winter storms happening already early in the holiday season, I’m excited to get to ski and snowboard this winter.  Even though I’ve lived in San Diego for most of the last 35 years, I’ve never actually skied or boarded in California.  My on the snow experience has been limited to Washington State (Snoqualmie Summit, Stevens Pass and Mission Ridge), Oregon (Mount Bachelor, Mount Hood and Mount Ashland), Colorado (Beaver Creek and Vail) and British Columbia (Whistler Blackcomb – my all-time favorite ski resort so far).

Happy Independence Day! Declare Independence from Host Gator

Declare Your Independence from HostgatorI’m Declaring Independence from HostGator

I just noticed that I have not posted on this site for well over a year.  Priorities – like being a Stay at Home Dad to the most awesome child actress Ava Kalea.  Yeah – important stuff – and super important to my design of an awesome lifestyle.

But I digress ….  Over the last week or so, I have received numerous notices from my website monitoring service that this site has not been loading …  What kind of crappy web host doesn’t load their client’s websites?  Hostgator.  Hostgator has proven to be one of the worst possible web hosts on the planet.  Earlier this year I moved most of my many websites to SiteGround for their award-winning webhosting.  Site Ground’s customer service is second to none and I’ve only had a positive experience with Site Ground web hosting.

If you still have a site, or sites (like me unfortunately) hosted by HostGator, I know you (and your website(s)) have been suffering.  I feel your pain.  I’ve had the same friggin stress and agony.  Continue reading “Happy Independence Day! Declare Independence from Host Gator”

Lifestyle Designers: Fluent in Fun – The Serrano Seven

The Serrano Seven Fluent in FunThe Serrano family are definitely Lifestyle Designers.  This family of seven picked up everything (well, at least 24 bags of luggage) and moved to Cozumel Mexico from their home in Idaho. They took a leap of faith and left with one-way tickets and have been in Cozumel for almost a year now.

You can follow their adventures on their travel blog Fluent in Fun.  I’m hoping we can meet them at some point once we start traveling the world with Ava Kalea Kennedy.

Video: Del Mar California Sunset April 4 2016 with Subliminal Messaging

One of the many benefits of living in San Diego is being close to the beach and being able to see some epic sunsets.  Here’s one from April 4, 2016 in Del Mar California (complete with subliminal messaging).  I will be posting a much shorter (and faster) version very soon.

Stacia Makes The Announcement …..

Last night I was super tired and instead of going to the beach to watch sunset, I went to take a nap just before 5:30.  I didn’t get out of bed until almost 12 hours later ….

Since today is the first day of Daylight Savings Time, it’s almost 6:30 in the morning – which is super late for me to wake up these days.  I went to check my email and was notified that there was a new video from Awesome Lifestyle Design – and it was from Stacia!  She finally decided to post one of the videos I shot of her last week – and it is a big announcement.

Some (many?) people may think that we are crazy (and we probably are), but this is something that we really, really wanted to do.  What do YOU think our Awesome Lifestyle is going to be like with a new addition?

Fitness for Young Old Guys: Trainers, Gyms and All Kinds of Workouts to Be Featured

 I was super inspired this morning by an article on the Seattle Times newsite about Kelli and Daniel Segars of North Seattle who run a fitness site at http://www.FitnessBlender.com.  Apparently they have over 2.5 million subscribers on their YouTube channel!  How Awesome!

I’ve been inspired to start doing a series of Young Old Guys fitness videos.  I’m looking for Eastside / Seattle area trainers, gyms,, etc to feature in these videos.  I’d like to be able to make videos of a wide variety of workouts including Crossfit, Spin, traditional weightlifting, bodybuilding, yoga, zumba, whatever is out there.

Put this young old guy through the paces and challenge me with your workout!

If you are interested, contact me at AwesomeLifestyleDesign@gmail.com, write a comment here, or contact me via social media.  Bonus points go to those who are extra interesting, challenging, and/or can help me get in better shape for the upcoming ski season!
