Explore, Adventure, And Protect Our Parks

*OWTK has proudly partnered with Hanes for this national park travel story. These three words represent key themes from the new Hanes t-shirt collection in partnership with the National Park Foundation. Those bold words — Explore, Adventure, Protect — are fitting for the collection, and are equally comfortable being bandied […]

Self-Propelled, Battery-Powered and Kid-Friendly

Most guys would think I’m daft for not having had my kids out doing the yard work years ago. They’d say something like, “dude what’s wrong with you?” (That’s a sentence I hear a lot anyway) These guys would then get more pointed with their critique, adding “that’s one of […]

Dynamic Water (Life Lessons From Whitewater Rafting Down The Arkansas River in Colorado)

There was little separating the early summer sun and us. Helmets, short sleeve wet suits that would absolutely kill in a comedy sketch back on dry land, tattered orange life vests that’ve been through a few wars at sea, and a lathering of spf 50 that should’ve really been reapplied […]

Making My Relationships Better Thanks To The Xfinity Mobile Phone Cleanse

In theory, this was going to be as easy as Sunday morning. I’d uninstall some apps, go grey for a day, back up and delete all those b-roll selfies and the gigabyte-wasting bizarre videos of feet and nostrils taken by my daughters, and I’d keep my gorgeous lilac purple S9+ […]

Life As A Time Capsule Of Faded Mementos and Forgotten Moments

It’s like a child scooping up fresh cold water from a creek only to lose more than half their prize through the gaps they cannot help from appearing while squeezing with everything they’ve got. It’s never enough. There’s just no way to have it all. It was maybe 10 nights […]

The Silent Invisible End

There’s something about going 78 miles per hour on the turnpike that pushes America’s turn toward a fascist kleptocracy into focus. The sky is so lovely with perfect puffs of well-defined white in the shape of bunnies, dragons, and a barn set atop a sea of maternity ward baby blue. […]
