theAttache

One of the most enjoyable aspects of roadtripN as your attache is seeing the designs for a global mobile creative studio truly come to life.

If you are ready to step into these designs, both digitally and in actuality, we would love to introduce you to our Co.M attache team.

theSpace comes to life! Come and join us in the recreation!

West

DSC_1140

All indications are that we’re heading west. We’ve received a number of invitations for the fall to connect and participate in Outerblue conversations. It is such a thrill when you begin to see dreams take shape. Connections lead to conversations which lead to collaborations leading finally to contributions. These contributions make all the difference in the world. They are the first real glimpses of a reality that exists beyond our wildest dreams. Time to hit the road. Westward bound!

Sail

Boat

Setting sail for the Riviera and looking forward to the time on the beach and the opportunity to reflect on the rocks and the coves that helped shape the voyage. It used to be that we got a little agitated when we went and scoped the crash sites. Now, we smile and find a sense of depth from knowing we’d never be here in the cove had we not landed there as well. Grab a rope, feel the breeze, RoadtripN the high seas is ready to push out into the blue.

Launch Sequence Final

Colorado RoadtripN

We’re off! Car full of clients and out the door. We will stop soon to pick up the trailer and we can squeeze in a few more then. Drop us a call if you want to land a spot on the next layover. RoadtripN pedal to the floor. The next stage is underway.

Mobile

Roadtrip Rolls On

This picture offers a friendly reminder that local mobile is ever changing. What used to carry the small business owner back and forth to the shop and to his or her customers is probably not working as well as it used to. In fact, it may even be so broken that you have resigned yourself and are now considering nothing more than turning the old way into a roadside art attraction. Just saying it can happen to even the best of Cadillacs.

We’re now out and about exploring with small business owners some new ideas how to make lemonade out of lemons. See the change that is happening can be the worst thing that ever happened or the best thing depending solely on whether or not you find new ways to change too.

We’re not saying it is gonna be easy. We’re just saying it is gonna be.

Find Outerblue

DSC_1140

Nothing is easy. It takes community and action and determination to find Outerblue. It takes inspiration and perspiration to get your venture off the launchpad. Yet, how cool is this? We’re catching some real looks at a fantasy we only dreamed might exist. Today, entrepreneurships are rocketing out every week.

We like to call it Outerblue. It’s not a dream. It’s a dream realized. Let’s launch our ventures together.

Join RoadtripN now and let’s do this.

Beach

Beach

Pull up a lounge chair and pluck a spot here in the shade under the thatch. Listen to the waves as they splish, splash, and crash onto the sands. Check out the photography vendors with their monkey set to pose for your modeling premiere. There are only a couple other spots in all the world that measure up to the people watching sport one finds on the beach.

For future reference:

Fire engine red skin does not equate to tan and is less attractive.
Free, unlimited cocktails are not meant to be consumed all in one setting.
European suits are made for european-dieted bodies, not for burger kings.
It is easier to walk after you rinse the salt and sand out of your shorts.

Every day COULD be like this one. Why do we choose to space these out into vacations? Wonder if the monkey photographer has openings for an apprentice?

Rocks

Rocks

We must go out. We simply must. We’re wired to go head first into the waves and push the adventure envelope.

But, with every good thing comes risk. And with every risk taken, the chances improve that sooner or later you’re going to lose. And when you do, welcome to the rocks.

Yes, they hurt. Yes, there is some pain, broken bones, and lost wages. Yes, there is probably even some hospital and court visits to be had if you take up the journey. Could we have done it differently? Probably not, we didn’t know better. Could we have avoided it all together? Yes, by not going out. But, where’s the life in that? Let’s go out, take our bumps and bruises along the way, and not shy away too much the next time. It’s just better this way! Bring on the waves, bring on the rocks, we’re all-in.

Cove

Cove

There are days and spots where you’re convinced that you’re going to arrive. Those days where you find that place, that zone. Those days where you breathe it in and know it may not last but it was worth every penny and scar to stand here even for a moment. This is one of those places.

A.Bandon Inn

Abandon Inn

Next time your roadtrip leads you to swing through Bandon, Oregon stop and stay at The Abandon Inn. Is there a better name for a roadtripN stopover? You’ve taken to the road, you’ve traveled far and wide, you’ve done so not fully sure what is in store except that you’ve heard good things. Then you arrive and realize that the reward is far greater than any risk assumed. You’ve reached the place and it was actually quite simple to get there…you just A.bandon Inn…all-in. Go for it, go big leave home!
