Tall Adventures: How can we HELP you get to the Head of the Charles?

October 31st, 2013

HOTC 2013

  

The Head of the Charles Regatta is one of the greatest 2 day athletic events in the world and a favorite pastime for our family. Held in Boston MA on October 19th and 20th, over 300,000 people came to see world class rowers compete in a 3 mile long course.  If you ever wanted to see a land of giants, this event is certain to impress. Thousands of tall men and women, in the top 5% of the US population, come to compete and watch. Plus it’s a great place to meet up with college alumni and old rowing friends.

I rowed on the University of Washington’s Women’s crew team in 1995 and was very fortunate to meet with Mike Callahan, Head Coach for the University of Washington’s Men’s crew team, and learned about transportation and the financial challenges that it takes to get the team and their boats across the cross country.  This got me about how we can help University of Washington and other crew teams pay for these extraordinary experiences.

 

Over 50% of every men’s crew roster on average is over 6 foot 3 inches which is in the tall slender demographic TEAL Apparel supports. I’d love to support Tall people and rowers and if TEAL Apparel can help your rowing program fundraise through private sales please do not hesitate to contact me. I want every rowing program to have the ability to send their team to the Head of the Charles each year.

Tall Adventures: Apple Picking with the Lalliers

October 17th, 2013

One of the best Fall activities is to go to a farm and pick apples. My family likes to try different farms so each experience is new and fresh. Each farm has its own charm and set of amusements for the kids including: hayrides, corn mazes, jumpy houses, pony rides and petting zoos.  The fruit picking is the main event and always sparks the kids gathering and picking skills while we fill our bellies with warm apple cider and crunchy, pillow-y cider donuts. This outing never disappoints and it is great family bonding time.

Here is a standard PICK YOUR OWN Fruit Calendar for most farms in the USA. This will help you strategize your next trip to the farm.

Here are a few of my family’s favorite apple farms in New England. We have been to all of them in the past year and have had so much fun. Enjoy!

 

Warm Regards,

Found: Tall Halloween Costumes Preview

October 11th, 2013

Halloween is a great holiday to celebrate being Long & Tall. It does not really matter which costume you wear because, you will stand out…literally. Historically, costumes for tall guys have not been creative or imaginative. Costume retailers typically have in stock a small number of options for the Tall guy (not a real surprise) and it’s usually the same genre like Frankenstein, Dracula, Mobster, Grim Reaper, or Zombie. The concept is if you are tall you are a thug or monster. This is definitely short sighted. I have found some fun, lovable characters that emphasize a fun side to being Tall!

 

Here are our Top 9 picks for this Halloween season:

 

Buddy Elf                                         Pope                           Gingerbread Man

Happy Halloween!
