Ask the old man


Let me start this by saying that I don’t know shit about shit. I have NO professional training in counseling of any sort. I am just a dude who has been around the block a time or three and will give you a straight answer to a question, whether you like said answer or not.

Feel free to submit any questions you may have to I will never use your name publicly and I’ll give you  my opinion on your question. Please forgive me as I may not have time to answer every question, but I will try.

Questions can be silly or serious, political or religious. Just remember that I will answer them with my honest opinion and that I am a bit of a savage.


I look forward to chatting with you!

    How is the Barenaked Travel book coming along? Is it still on track for November? For the Kickstarter campaign I signed up for the book and a print. Do I get to pick the print from a list or do you pick ’em? Love the new site and collective. I still think you have hippy tendencies but I think that it is a very creative approach to marketing and talent management. Good luck!

      Hey Tom! I just saw this so sorry for the late response! The photos are chosen and the stories are written. We did run into a snag with our printer (shakes fist at computer) but we’ll be ready just a couple months later than we had anticipated. But it was quality vs time and I opted for quality. As for your print, you can totally choose it and I’ll even send IT out now. So you don’t have to wait for the actual book. Thank you for your kind words and your continued support!
