The #LiveRiveted Life of the Dueck Family

For the Dueck family, their goal for life is simple: to live adventurously as a young family. Josh, Lacey and their daugher Nova have recently embarked on a Live Riveted adventure in their 25-foot Airstream and are hitting the road in search of adventure, community, incredible people and delicious meals. The Duecks have a deep love of adventure and sports. Josh has always been a lover of the outdoors and skiing.  On March 8, 2004 at the age of 23, a stunt on skis gone wrong left him paralyzed from the waist down, but that has opened his eyes to

Best Places to View the Fall Foliage

Today is the first day of fall, and you know what that means! Mother Nature is getting ready to turn down the thermostat and paint herself in brilliant hues of scarlet, tangerine and gold. This time of year is special because it delivers fun, fall-exclusive activities like bonfires, camping trips, corn mazes and hayrides, and at the stroke of midnight, everything will turn to pumpkin spice. One of the easiest fall activities, of course, is simply viewing the beautiful display of changing leaves. Today, we’d like to share some of the best locations to enjoy this charming foliage, with apple cider

Reveling in ‘the Weirdest Job’

Back in the spring, Veronica Watson, Lego master model builder, answered questions on Reddit about her craft. Most of them helped people understand what she does, but maybe not this one: Q: Do you date Batman? A: Um, no. I did not know he was available. Or this one: Q: How many Legos can you step on barefoot? A: Oh god … 2. One for each foot. I mean, after that, I would look down and realize I was stepping on them. Those answers may not tell much about her craft, but they speak volumes about Watson’s creativity and quick, dry wit.

What’s Your Plan B?

There are these caprese salad skewers pictured on Russ Kendall’s business website. Vibrant cherry tomatoes in yellow or red, white mozzarella balls speckled with fresh herbs, and bright green basil leaves in between those layers. Lush ingredients begging to be tasted and savored. “I have found if I put up a line about them, I’ll sell two or three,” says Kendall. “But if I put a picture out, I’ll sell 40.” That, right there, cuts to the heart of why Gusto Wood Fired Pizza in Bellingham, Wash., is also known as Kendall’s Plan B. Photography has been the lifeblood of

Of Veterans, Jobs and Setting Goals

By Nancy Colasurdo Back in high school, Dan Goldenberg had three goals: row on the Olympic crew team, become a pilot, become an aerospace engineer. “I got cut from the crew team,” Goldenberg says with a laugh in our recent interview. “My eyes were too bad [to fly], and my calculus grades were too bad to be an engineer.” Bye, bye, goals. Well, at least those three. Goldenberg, executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment and a commander in the Navy reserve, found his way with some others. A self-described “awful” student in middle school, he was later impressed with the
