The stock market has had a rough run over the last few months and this is about the time when you start asking yourself…. “Why am I putting my money in a 401k?”.

We hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend!!!
Lauren and I dusted off the Retro trailer and spent the weekend in Yosemite. It was a great trip and surprising quiet for a holiday weekend. Glacier point was closed to car traffic so the scene at the top was something special. The views of a Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Nevada and Vernal falls all in one shot was spectacular. We have seen it before but this was amazing without the typical crowds.
