The last few days have been a bit of a blur – hence the reason why things have been somewhat quiet on the rainmaker front. On Wednesday night I had a surprise bachelor party thrown for me when my brother came into town. The centerpiece being a Nats vs Seattle Mariners game – which is pretty cool since I’m an M’s fan from growing up in Seattle. Regrettably…the game itself was somewhat fuzzy…
Moving right along, everything in the house is revolving around boxes and bags. Boxes coming in, boxes going out, bags to pack. Then unpack, and repack again…and again…and again. The Girl leaves at 6AM on Friday (in a few hours) for the wedding destination, with me following along in a few days. But in order to ensure we’ve got everything the packing has to be largely done before she leaves.
So between all the boxes that we’ve got packed going outbound with wedding related stuff – we’ve also incoming Wedding Registry gifts, not to mention the usual stream of DCRainmaker related product review boxes. I think it was Monday afternoon when I walked out of the garage and the UPS/FedEx guys had piled up the boxes to the height of the garage door. Not quite sure why they just didn’t ring the doorbell…perhaps they liked stacking.
Hopefully this weekend I’ll have a chance to get through all of the DCR related boxes…I know there’s some cool new stuff from Wahoo in a rather large box, then there’s the gigantic VASA swim trainer/power meter to unbox. Plus some other goodness that I’m finishing up taking photos of in the pool for, currently scheduled for release/announcement next week as well. Good times!
But…I’ve gotta get up here in a few to run to the airport, so thanks hanging in there and thanks for reading!
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products.
