Some Links and travel thoughts

  • Tony Wheeler visited BootsnAll
  • I am excited that my old friend Jen Leo is getting married in Vegas next week. She is an awesome old friend and it is fun to see her get jacked up for her big day. Of course, having it in Sin City should be fun for the guests as well.
  • Weather in the Pacific Northwest is wonderful in summer.

BnA Travel Stuff
We are cranking away here at BnA. Typically, the 1st half of the year is the time of the year that we make hay so to speak. People are planning trips during the Northern Hemisphere Winter/Spring and are off travelling in the summer. It has been a good year so far, though there are still major challenges ahead.

We started off years ago as a few travelers, who were building a website/community. Our growth far outstripped out capabilities as programmers so the past few years we gathered together what I think is a solid team and smart people to help us continue to grow and build awesome services for independent travellers. I’m excited about getting the final person of the puzzle figured out soon.

Donovan has been reaching out to lotsa adventure minded folks that don’t have a lot of time, but want more than just a week at the beach getting drunk. As usual, folks are into Mt. Kilimanjaro and the video we produced on Mt. Kili gets folks excited about the possibility of climbing it. Donovan is taken off for Nepal and Tibet this fall to experience some of the trips he sells himself. I too am considering going on this Nepal Annapurna Base Camp Trip. Anyone wanna join me?

Tag any thread on BnA message boards

We just launched a new feature into Alpha phase on our Message boards. Now topic starters and admins can tag threads with relevant keywords.

Why is this important?

As our threads get tagged – it makes it extremely easy to find discussions about stuff that you care about.

For example: I just tagged this thread with Lonely Planet ( and all the threads about that keyword will be listed. Over time, this should be an excellent way to organize the content on the boards into micro niches of information.

Not many other message board systems have this, so I am proud to see our team get this feature out. Hopefully all the active Booties will like it.

Questions for Tony Wheeler

I am interviewing Lonely Planet Founder Tony Wheeler this upcoming Monday. It is exciting to be able to spend a little bit of time to talk about his new book, Badlands as well as other travel and Lonely Planet stuff.

If you read the book, do you have any questions that you think I should ask?

If not, any other questions you’d like to ask?

Check out what BnA members would like to ask Mr. Wheeler.

Don Cherry Video

This Canadian Announcer is frickin’ hilarious

Don Cherry on Women at Hockey Games

He was on NBC promoting the fighting in Hockey recently so I googled a few of his vids.

Sebastian Maniscalco Comedy

Funny 6 minute skit of an old college friend. He used todo some of this type of stuff the morning after a big piss-up. Glad to see him still bringing laughs to the world.
