Happiness = Reality – Expectations

Think about that…

I’ve watched this Casey Neistat vlog a couple times…it’s short. And no matter how many times I watch it, I appreciate the lesson he is gleaning from this Elon Musk interview.

Happiness = Reality – Expectations

Let that settle in a bit.

Overland Bound Badge for my 4Runner TRD Pro

Love the Overland Bound community…

Bought this badge well before I got my TRD Pro 4Runner. Happy to slap it on there.

The Overland Bound Badge means a lot to me and I’m proud to put it on my 4Runner. To me it means getting outside, camping with my kids, and just trying to make memories.

OFF ROAD with 4Runner at Natchez Trace State Park, Tennessee

These off-road trails are PERFECT for beginners…

Got to take the 4Runner, when it was still new, to run around some fire roads at Natchez Trace State park in Tennessee. Highly recommend if you want to just get out and drive around a bit.

Detailed Walkthrough of a 5th Gen 4Runner TRD PRO (calvary blue)

Such a great car…

I had been driving my Jeep Wrangler for almost 15 years before I finally got a car big enough to fit my family of 5. In the theme of having my cake and eating it too…I got this 4Runner.

Cody Wanner's #NOSMALLCREATOR Movement

If you are in the vlogging scene at all, you need to go check this guy out…

I postulate about about how Cody Wanner didn’t start the no small creator fire…he just discovered this flame, fanned it, lit the torch and RAN WITH IT!!

He’s an amazingly big personality, great vlogger, and good dude. Go follow him.

CALIFORNIANS don't Know How GOOD they Have It

Man I was spoiled growing up here…

Good lord California is amazing. Having grown up and lived there for most of my life, I never realized how nice it was ALL THE TIME.

Now I do.

I never realized how good I had it.

Teach Your Kids to be Scientists

Youthful curiosity is a good thing…

Kids are curious…we should foster that. I do my best to encourage my kiddos in things they are interested in. My oldest seems to want to be a scientist…so this day we built an elevator out of a cereal box.
