Have you watched the movie 'Air' on Prime yet? It's the story about how Nike got Michael Jordan to sign with their company, and the creation of the first Air Jordan sneaker, it's fascinating. So much that I want a pair of Nike Air Jordan 2's again. I had a pair in 1986, but I threw them out. Our chance to redeem ourselves is coming to Connecticut in June.

I just received an update from Mohegan Sun that announced that a big sneaker convention called 'The Sneakerhead Invasion' is coming to the Earth Expo Center at Mohegan Sun on Sunday June 4, 2023. It's being billed as Connecticut's biggest sneaker convention, and with 125,000 square feet of space, Earth Expo has the room for plenty of vendors. What can you expect? Rare classics, 200+ vendors, streetwear and collectibles, and some hot new and upcoming releases to check out.

Tickets are interesting too, both General and VIP tickets will allow you to bring in sneakers into the event to try to sell or trade. The General Admission tickets goes for $30, and it allows you to bring up to 3 pairs of sneakers into the event to try to sell. VIP tickets are $40, and for the extra $10 you'll be able to bring in as many sneakers that you can carry, through a special entry line. The promoters have also announced reduced ticket prices for high school students - $15 (With your school ID), and children under 10 with a parent will be admitted for free.

I've only kept one pair of sneakers longer than 5 years, so if you have much more patience and room than I do, you could walk out of Mohegan Sun with some money that didn't come from a slot or table game.

If you're anything like me you spend most of your days hiding your inner child waiting to break out. No one particularly likes "adulting" and corporate life can really drain the joy right out of your body. So, when it comes time to recreate we all deserve a chance to really kick off the dust. We want to run barefoot, swim, hike and eat smores fireside. If any of what I just said sounds like you, I've got the perfect break for you. Sorry, I mean I have 7 Outdoor Adventures that are just waiting for you.
