Dear Family & Friends:
I am proud to report that Ollie and his Dad, Simon, completed a Half Marathon in Orange County on November 7, 2021. “Life to the Fullest” is our goal for Ollie. Congratulations to Ollie & Simon!
I have been asked to make a presentation about my 2019 “Source to Gulf“ Mississippi River canoe trip. Here is the 30-minute video that I will use in that presentation. I will post this video in my Gallery if you want to watch it later.
Most of you who have followed my adventures know that I love hot sauce. This addiction began when I was a child. I now have one of the greatest hot sauce collections in the world. In my travels to every continent, I have never met anyone who can match my capacity for Scoville-inflicted pain. In 2021, the Paqui “One Chip Challenge” was issued. The Paqui chip combines ingredients from two of the hottest peppers in the world-the Carolina Reaper Pepper (1.7 million Scoville Units) and the Scorpion Pepper (1.2 million Scoville units). The One Chip Challenge is to eat the entire chip without drinking or eating anything to alleviate the pain. Here is a video that features my performance.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all of you. We have so much to be thankful for-a loving God, our families and living in the greatest country on the planet.
One chip going in is one thing
I want to see the video reaction to the one chip coming out.
“‘Life to the fullest” takes on new meaning with every post. Holiday blessings to you and your family.
Just re-watched your Mississippi River trip. What an amazing journey. Thanks for sharing it. ❤️
well Bill..Sharon is really a lucky lady having such a “hot” guy…and a winner to boot. Good job.
My grandson Declan would love that challenge👍👍. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family 🦃
First of all, congratulations to Simon and Ollie for completing the marathon. How exciting! Secondly, enjoyed the Mississippi adventure. Reminds me of my son’s trip completing the Florida Intercoastal by kayak. The 16th person to do so! And your hot sauce addiction cracks me up! I have one called Endorphin Rush that causes me to suck on an ice cube for 1/2 hr to relieve the pain! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. God bless!
