Spending time in nature through outdoor education and adventures are brilliant ways to create success in a technologically advanced world. We realize that this statement is highly ironic.

Have you ever rounded a corner and then stopped dead in your tracks? That's almost what we did when driving to Cartridge Brewing in Maineville, just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Especially when it houses a brewery. Meet...

9/21/2022
Good beer matters. At least we think so. Actually a lot of people think so, but why? And why should we learn about why good beer matters? Because beer is about more than just the beer.

And that is exactly what matters to Jeremy Storton. Meet Jeremy from Good Beer Matters. Anyone who has ever taught anything knows that...

Brain Tumor Pushes Full-time Sailing Dream Aground

Things like high winds causing 13 foot high waves resulting in a call to the Coast Guard. Full-time sailing can do that to...
