It’s one thing to use dark humor when you are in the middle of a situation. Read more

Age is definitely a factor. Travel didn’t used to faze me in the least, and my wife (seven years younger) still plans travel like we did many years ago. Read more

Usually, we can find friends to help out with the cat while we are out of town, but everyone was weirdly traveling or busy last summer. The cat sitter I found also cleans houses, so I ponied up for cat care + house cleaning. It was so wonderful to come home to sparkling tile and no dust bunnies.

Depends, it’s pretty normal in my gym. We’ve got two racks, a dedicated squat rack, and then there’s a wide bench setup and an angled one. I’ve literally never seen a single person use the wide bench for bench pressing; I sometimes see people doing step-ups onto it. The power racks are used for everything from Read more

By the dumbbell rack since no one ever puts their fucking dumbbells back.

No... don’t do Bench in a Power Rack especially in January. So many gyms only have a few Racks but so many benches. Wait for a bench to Bench, the racks are for their own lifts you can’t do on the more common items. I mean taking up two pieces of equipment in a packed gym is not good form.

If you have a power rack, you can do bench presses on there as well. Just bring a bench over if you can.

I’m shocked that Austin’s airport is at 24. I haven’t been through it in years but they used to have great restaurants there. In fact I remember when they opened, some people would go there JUST for the restaurants because they were closer to the airport than the actual restaurant (pre-9/11 you could do that).

ATL has a ton of options....if you are willing to walk about 15 miles.

I live in Nashville and I will confirm that the airport food options are indeed, for the most part, pretty terrible. I mean, how does the Nashville airport not have a Nashville Hot Chicken joint? It’s such a shame too because, even taking hot chicken out of the equation, Nashville itself is a great food city. Read more

Tampa has such good food now you can get passes to the airport to eat in Lounges/terminals if you are not flying. 

They also have a microbrewery.

Every time I think of the worst airport food I’ve ever had, I think of a to-go register outside some BBQ place in the Memphis airport. Read more

Charlotte is the best because it has a Bojangles. Man, I miss Bojangles.

I can’t sleep sitting up, so fuck me in particular. The best way to sleep on a flight is in those higher class seats that lie all the way back. By that, I mean the only way to sleep. Read more

I lie back as straight as possible. Noise cancelling headphones playing some kind of ambient noise (my preference is rain + thunder using the Noisli app) are a must.

I fly long haul economy A LOT and am also a terrible plane sleeper. I just recently found that if I use a fitted but stretchy athletic jacket, pull both my arms in and yank the hood down, I’m out like a light. I think it has more to do with keeping my limbs from falling or slipping while I’m asleep than supporting my Read more

A ball cap makes things much easier for me. Pull it down as low as possible to block out the light. A guess a mask would work as well.  Recline the seat (damn straight - they built it for a reason) cross the arms across the lap and its pretty simple for me.  Bonus points if you can lean against the window with a Read more

Oh to be young again and be able to sleep in the same position as the kid pictured on the right. If I fell asleep like that and tried to get up, someone would have to dial 911.

I find that if I drink enough I can sleep in most any position. Read more
