I am thrilled to share with you the synopsis of...
Murder on Aconcagua

Hero Scott Devlon is once again sent by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency on another climbing expedition. This time the mountain is Aconcagua, the highest in South America. His mission is to confirm a report that three Inca golden idols have been discovered and are headed to Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez. Legend says he who possesses them is invincible. Scott’s assignment is to prevent that from taking place but he quickly learns that there are those who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get their hands on the idols. Join Scott Devlon as he battles not only the brutal elements of the Aconcagua summit, but the determined greed of a murderer in Murder on Aconcagua.

K-2 Foundation Event

Over the weekend, I attended the K-2 Foundation's Masquerade Ball at Doubletree Resort. The amazing Kyle Maynard spoke at the event.  What a cool guy and a great motivational speaker!  To tell you a little bit about Kyle, he was born on March 24, 1986 with a condition known as congenital amputation, that has left him with arms that end at the elbows, and legs that end near his knees.  His story begins as an 11-year old that wanted to wrestle, and a coach that gave him an opportunity to try.  After losing every single match his first year, and most his second, Maynard with his iron will and a coach with a heart of gold became a very successful varsity wrestler on one of the best teams in the Southeast.  In spite of his limitations, Maynard found a way to win 36 varsity matches his senior year, while defeating several state place finishers, and state champions, during his final season. 

All of this, is only the beginning.  You can read about Kyle's other accomplishments HERE, which include his world record, and the ESPY he won in 2004.  Next up?  Summiting the highest peak in Africa, known as Mt. Kilimanjaro.  Kyle has formed a team called "Mission Kilimanjaro", and together, they hope to send a message to heroes in the veteran community, and to kids with disabilities around the world, that regardless of any challenge we face, no obstacle is too great to be conquered.  Amazing doesn't even begin to define Kyle.  Please read more about Kyle's mission, and support him by visiting his website HERE for more information.

It was my great honor to meet Kyle.  Take a look at the pictures below, and be sure to check out his book, NO EXCUSES

David Copperfield Show

When I was in Las Vegas for the PubWest conference, my wife Rose and I caught a David Copperfield show at MGM Grand.  After the show, we went up on stage to meet him, and he did a little card trick for us.  He is a really nice guy, and the show was great!  Take a look at the photos.  Fun!
