    The Longest Zip Line Canopy Tour in the World!

    A road trip is about much more than a destination. It’s about the overall journey –  where you go, what you experience, and how you get there. Toyota recently hosted me on a couple of incredible road trips where I got to experience fly fishing, off-roading, trap shooting and the longest zip line canopy tour in the WORLD! Better yet, I was provided with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma XSP to make the trips. Zip Lining […]

    Three days in Downtown Napa #DoNapa

    As an avid wine lover it is not shocking that Napa, California is one of my favorite destinations. I last visited the city in 2014 and spent the majority of my time in downtown Napa. One of the things I love about staying downtown is that many of the area winemakers have tasting rooms in the city and rather than driving from vineyard to vineyard to sample wines, I can simply walk. I also love that […]

      We went behind the scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger winery in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma, California where we learned a thing or two about organic farming from winemaker and vice president of production, Mike Brunson.
