Steak Dry Rub
1/4 cup smoked paprika
3 tablespoons cumin
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Sea salt to taste
Olive oil brushed onto outside of steak
Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a large bowl. Place each steak directly into the dry rub mixture and make sure each side is well coated, rubbing the dry rub into the stead. Let the steaks sit for at least 30 minutes. Coat each side with a bit of olive oil before the steaks hit the grill. We used top sirloin but this dry rub is great on rib eyes and flank steak too!!
4 avocados, diced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onions, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and serve on top of your steaks!
Chopped Broccoli Salad
3 cups broccoli, finely chopped
1 ½ cups of carrots, diced
1 apple, diced
9 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
3 green onions, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 tabelspoon fresh dill
Black pepper to taste

Vacation of a lifetime in the BVI’s
You've all heard of the “Backpacker's Guide to Europe” and the “Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy”. Well then, consider this the ”Millennial's Guide to Chartering”. Millennial's chartering?

Now, I can't speak for everyone in my generation, but I know that for the most part we are action seekers, relaxation experts, adrenaline junkies, food lovers, cocktail savvy, adventure hungry and looking for some awesome pictures to put on our Instagram accounts.

Big, elegant, and capable
Families with young people who are seriously into waterskiing or wake boarding face a difficult choice: Buy a dedicated tow sports boat and make the kids happy or buy a more traditional family boat and make everyone comfortable.
In our opinion, the Vanquish 24 Runabout offers up a big, elegant, and capable solution that could make everybody happy. This is not a cheap solution, but it's an impressive one. Last August, we traveled to Gravenhurst, Ontario, and got our first look at the Vanquish 24 Runabout, tied up at Muskoka Wharf Marine. One glance told us this was a special boat.
