Shunpiking - finding the stories that unite us


America is a patchwork quilt, and stories are its stitching.  In a divided age, we need unifying stories more than ever.  In order to find those stories, I practice the lost art of Shunpiking — knowing when to “shun” the turnpike and get onto the back roads where the good stories are tucked away.  The ones that remind us of our best selves.

How to be an Adventure Entrepreneur

Created SoldierFuel® energy bars

After discovering that civilian Army bureaucrats were pumping dangerous trans fat into Soldiers via their rations, I pioneered the movement to end trans fat in troop feeding.  My brothers and I became the Army’s R&D partner in performance nutrition, and we promptly got attacked by the Old Boys' Network, which wanted to keep the status quo.  But we persevered, and we created the healthier Soldier Fuel energy bar (which is now featured in the U.S. Special Operations Forces Nutrition Guide and used by militaries worldwide).
