This trip has caused us to become Homeless!


Yes, you read the title correctly. We have officially become homeless. You see, we figured since we will be gone for several months, that it did not make sense to have dual expenses (on the road and back home). We made a conscious decision to begin marketing our homes for rent. This was a toughContinue reading “This trip has caused us to become Homeless!”

Mercer was the 1988 United States Amateur Champion at HeavyweightContinue reading “We TKO’ed that Suspension with the help of the Champs Dad!”
