2024 Solis WiFi Hotspot Review: Using the Skyroam Solis Lite Overseas

As someone who regularly “workations” and relies on a solid Internet connection to be productive while traveling, it’s kind of crazy that I went without a WiFi hotspot for so long. That’s mostly because I had never come across a particular device that jumped out at me.  Well, that was...

Travel Tuesday: Suavs Zilker Travel Shoes Review

Travel Tuesday: MGM Grand King Room Review Revisited

It's been a while since I've added to my Las Vegas Content Bonanza™. Well, that's also because it had been some time since I last had a chance to visit Sin City. But, back in January for CES, that changed. This time around, I spent a week at the MGM...

Go Brewing - My New Favorite Non-Alcoholic Beer?

About a year ago, I started taking an interest in non-alcoholic beer after discovering Athletic. While I've never been a big beer drinker, I have long been curious about the craft beer scene and, honestly, may have even been a bit jealous of how my wife got to try all...
