Tom’s Triumphs: Is This a Poop?

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. So we coordinated a trip with four couples and two babies to the southwest quarter of South Dakota. The trip was amazing, but I often ended up sounding like classic detective Roger Murtaugh.

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?

Tom’s Triumphs – They Call it Fishing, Not Catching

One of my favorite things in the world is boating. I love being on the water. I love feeling the wind and the waves as we zip from place to place, and the freedom and adventure that come along with it.

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to share that joy with my daughter for the first time. My little flower did great, she explored the boat, threw some sticks in the water an continually crabbed about how bulky her little life jacket is.

Tom’s Triumphs – Overcoming a Crappy Month

For most of my life, I’ve had a fear/general distaste about using public restrooms to drop a deuce. I mean, sometimes it’s unavoidable, but if there is any foreseeable way for me to capture home field advantage, I am capable of holding my bowels for long periods of time. My dad and brother will probably never let go of the fact that I once drove 20 minutes to a casino for a bathroom break when we were ice fishing.
