What are you drinking?

Rich’s Drink: Guiness Stout
Justin’s Drink: Tangerine Hop Nosh from Uinta

I know, it’s not tangerine Hop Nosh…but it’s pretty close! This beer was drank at Common Grounds, an awesome breakfast joint in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA.

Driving is the most dangerous thing most of us do on a daily basis. Driving kills about 40,000 Americans every year. You can mitigate this risk through defensive driving. Rich and I talk about maintaining your vehicle, keeping a safe following distance, and avoiding dangerous situations. We also harp on the importance of training. You might need to use a firearm one day. You WILL need driving skill EVERY day. If you don’t have some high-performance driver training, get some!

Jake the Dog, a natural-born entrepreuer, has had his paw in several lucrative ventures including Clear Pepsi, and New Coke. He lists one of his major accomplishments as being a key investor in the Fyre Festival. We’ll let Jake tell you guys the rest! Here goes:
