STUFF I DIG
What we use, interact with, and consume have major bearing on our livelihood and direction.
Garbage in, garbage out. Positive in, positive out.
Here are some positive (and flat-out cool) things that I am digging right now.
What's buzzing around my grateful ear-drums:
What's making being a dude more easy and/or enjoyable:
THE OSPREY POCO AG PACK
The Ultimate "Dad-Pack"
This pack allows me to satisfy two inner needs: hanging with my kiddos and getting an outdoor workout.
I simply slip one of my munchkins into the backpack and hit the trail, tossing them snacks from time to time to keep them entertained.
Maybe they grab a cat-nap under the expandable sun/rain shade (seriously rad feature) or maybe they call out every tree and rock they see in my ear. Either way, daddy's getting some fresh air and the same benefits of a ruck-sack trip. Cha-ching!
THE (NEW) FORD RANGER (XLT)
The Coolest "Little Bro" On the Block
I'm aware that you can't just go grab one, but dude -- how else can I prove I'm not getting a commission here?
Yes, the old Rangers are the dwarf-trucks that contractors scrape from job A to job B, but the new Ranger is bigger, more rugged, and more feature-rich than the original.
I bought mine as a self-congrats gift when I started my last consulting gig (after a dry stint) in Dec. '19 and have thanked myself ever since.
Basically, Ford channeled 10+ years of F-150 lessons (and dominance) into the new Ranger and priced it ~$10K less than its new rival, the Toyota Tacoma.
If you're looking for a new truck, check out the Ranger -- he's been taking notes on Big Bro for years.
