I have been on the road for a few day. The purpose of the trip was to attend the biggest fishing convention in the World and meet with all my sponsors, partners and prospective sponsors.
I saw lots of old friends and made some new ones. It was a great year! All our sponsors were very happy and we made some new relationships.
Perhaps the highlight of the entire trip was meeting this gentleman who told me that he had found Saltwater Experience through my other show, Fitness Truth. I was surprised to hear this, but even happier to hear him tell me that he had changed his life and lost over 100 lbs after watching the show. He then started a family.
I have always said that I did Fitness Truth to try to reach people just like him and if I could make a difference in just one person's life, then it would all be worth it. Well, that day came, and he told me how important the show was to his life and how it forever changed it for the better.
This made me really happy.
I was able to get workouts in every day. Mostly, the deck of cards at 5 am with some Wim Hof breathing, but today, me and Builder, built a little gym in the parking lot of the crappy hotel we are staying in.
Notice the Rogue portable pullup bar slung over a tree branch. I was very happy to use this.
I actually did not use it due to a slight injury in my left bicep, but did the 500 swing Kettlebell workout instead. Last time I finished in 27:02 but it took me 27:45 today. It was much hotter today.
Tomorrow, we start filming, so stay tuned for some fishing pictures tomorrow.
