Tom’s Triumphs: Sedlacek Sausagefest

Hello, friends. If your idea of a good time is something other than getting up hours before the sun rises, eating some oatmeal, bundling up in cold-weather gear and sitting quietly in the woods for several hours – we are not that dissimilar. For some reason, I find myself committing to three weekends of hunting in November each year.

October is a busy month. It’s one of the most intense months of the year at work. The Vikings season is in full swing. It’s my mother-in-laws birthday. We host a Halloween party, and the dozen or so trees in our yard drop a cubic ton (or two) of leaves for us to clean up. Somehow, in the middle of it all, was a bountiful harvest of gaming.

Tom’s Triumphs – I Am Too Old To Do Things

Shortly after my 38th birthday, I loaded my little family up for a trip to the Black Hills with the in-laws. I had never been, but it’s my wife’s favorite place on earth.

Tom’s Triumph: A Tom in the Wilderness

You might think the brain behind Outside is Overrated would be akin to Sheldon Cooper’s – believing that man has spent thousands of years perfecting inside, why would we ever go out? Alas, (or avast?) this Tom spent nearly two weeks in  Alaska and the pristine wilderness of Voyageurs National Park. So did our fearless adventurer log more hours in Final Fantasy or catching fish?
