The Joy of Flying

You are dangling 25 feet in the air. Far below you is nothing but the hard warehouse floor. Holding you up is nothing but a sleek, slippery fabric which increasingly threatens to slide right out of grip with each passing moment.

Take aim and let fly: Archery on the Central Coast

 
There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.

Want more pain in life? Keep sitting down

As working members of the twenty first century, we have worked hard to make technologically advancements and make our society the best it can be.  We have gotten so smart that we no longer need much physical action to accomplish our goals or work projects. In fact, aside from having to get up to go to the bathroom, we don’t need to do much aside from the sitting position with our bodies; other machines do our work for us.

Set sail on your dreams!

Couple shares once-in-a-lifetime island adventure

Tyson Hayward has always dreamt of sailing. Raised in land-locked Calgary, Canada by a father who had competed in the Olympic trials as a Star-Class yacht racer, the call of a watery horizon always beckoned him. So, at his first chance, in his early twenties, he set off for the Virgin Islands. Working as a waiter, he earned his fins as a scuba dive master and spent a year exploring the underwater paradise of the islands.

Scott Brennan

If you’re looking for a marathon vacation, Paso Robles wine country is the place for you.

It’s the perfect mix of good scenery, good weather and local attractions. The Paso Robles Harvest Marathon is returning for its third year on Sunday, October 28th. It includes a 5k and half-marathon relay.

I ran the course the first two years. It is stunningly beautiful. The race starts out at Le Vigne Winery on the east side and begins a series of short hills to the halfway mark. Local volunteers from cheerleaders to girl scouts show up at the water stations to cheer you on.
