My first attempt at fly fishing from a standup paddleboard was essentially a mitigated disaster while trying to deal with wind, too much clutter on the boat deck, and fish that were easily spooked. I have since learned to actually catch fish from the inflatable SUP but recently spent a lot of effort trying to streamline everything to become more stealthy for sight fishing. I’m pretty happy with the results, which I have documented in this post.

Help Portrait Prescott is a new local chapter of a national organization that offers to individuals and families who could not otherwise afford it a posed, professional portrait in a studio environment. Each individual is given an 8 x 10 framed portrait; families receive an 11 x 14 frame. All are given digital shots and coupons to make additional low-cost prints.
Scott Bideau, the organizer of Help Portrait Prescott, holds a portrait from a similar event a few years ago of a family who arranged for the portrait to send to their daughter serving in Iraq. The father in the photograph was a community leader who died two years later from lung issues he suffered after volunteering to assist his brother at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks.

- About a month after I fixed my “SIM PIN2” error on the LTE card installed inside my new laptop, I started experiencing the following error when attempting to connect:
“Can’t connect to this network. Enter an apn and try again.”
If you have this problem or are generally looking how to override a Windows 10 default driver, I may be able to help.
I saw my first Warren Miller ski film in 1998. Some friends and I were watching it over college winter break, and before the movie was over, I had convinced several of them to leave that night for a ski trip to Colorado. I would soon fall in love with life in a ski town and eventually do as Warren recommended in the movie: move there.
I recently installed a Sierra Wireless EM7455 LTE card inside a new laptop, and directly after inserting the new SIM card, Windows 10 displayed “No Service” before eventually showing an error about a locked SIM card. It turns out the problem had nothing to do with the SIM card.
“Came for the winters, stayed for the summers.” A common saying amongst Steamboat Springs residents. Many credit the “Yampa Valley Curse” from a Ute Indian leader who swore nobody could leave once they moved in. Ironically, our family is now leaving because of the winters. Living in a ski town was a dream of mine since first visiting Colorado. I envisioned epic snow storms that lasted for days, secret powder stashes that never got tracked out, and a laid-back lifestyle that felt like a perpetual ski vacation.
Can your truck, SUV, or other vehicle tow a popup camper? The answer depends on how heavy the camper is, how much of that weight is distributed to vehicle hitch, how many passengers you carry in the vehicle, and several other items we cover in this post about towing capacity.
What exactly is deflection, and how do we measure it? This is one of the most frequently asked questions I receive from clients.
There is overwhelming evidence that customers want to resolve their own issues via self-service, and doing so is far cheaper for the vendor than assisted service. This is one instance where customer satisfaction aligns perfectly with cost efficiency, meaning everyone from the CFO to the Chief Customer Officer to the customer themselves loves case deflection. If done correctly, that is.
But to measure something, you must first define it. So, let’s look at what constitutes a good deflection event and how success is measured.
Here’s a quick tip for a convenient place to store your RV’s freshwater hose. Just take a couple of ball bungees and attach the rolled-up tubing to your spare tire. I recommend connecting the hose inlet/outlet together to keep dust and debris out of the inside. And always remember to use a drinking water-approved hose since standard garden hoses often contain toxic chemicals that you don’t want in your freshwater tank.
