Have you brought any fruits or vegetables onto the planet?
Today wraps two weekends in a row away from V&P. As much good has been done in that time, as much as the last 10 days have shown me, without any doubt, how much potential I have at my fingertips—I really just want to get home to my girls.
PS: Assuming the scheduler didn’t shit the bed again, the first “Synchro Sunday” should be live on GBXM now. Here’s a link.
This is my second time at OXW.
The first was back in 2016, when Chazz and I were actively marketing Adventurist Life magazine. We had a little booth off the back of his Land Rover Discovery on the vendor midway.
It was a lot of fun—even if I DID get TRASHED Saturday night and missed my chance to interview Earth Cruiser owners about their incredible, Mitsubishi Fuso overlanding machines Sunday morning.
Overall, though, I really didn’t know many people. At least, not beyond their names, anyway.
Today, things are a little bit different. I’m walking around OXW on a mission to meet some new people and get to know the ones I already know a bit better while we can hang out in person.
The irony of Overland Expo is that I feel like I’m going to get more out of the one day I’m there this year representing Gearbox Magazine than I did two-plus days in 2016 representing Adventurist Life.
I’m gonna try it.
Perfection is the enemy of progress. Doesn’t matter if you’ve been trying to execute on your brilliant plan and life keeps throwing you curves. OODA loops, friend.
Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
This is life.
Part of me thinks it’s stupid committing to adding something to the already struggling weekly editorial calendar. And part of me doesn’t care, because this idea is simple and speaks to what the future of Gearbox Magazine is all about.
So here’s to Synchro Sundays. Coming THIS Sunday to Gearbox Magazine.
