Highways To Fairways: Two "Crappy Golfers" Tell All

 We met Charlie and Wayde, the two aforementioned "crappy golfers," at the Joe Carter Golf Tournament this year, and we LOVE them (even if they are crappy golfers)! They have a new TV series called Highways to Fairways where they hit the road in their RV and travel the US and Canada seeking out the most unique and unusual golf courses in North America. I've seen the trailer. And now I'm setting my TiVo. Also, we're happy to announce that Lug is an official sponsor of the show! (Yay!) And as an official sponsor, we have made a Lug commercial that will air every time their show plays. It's our first commercial, and we're pumped about it. Check it out here, and let us know what you think. Then be sure to tune into Highways to Fairways!

Lug Does Good Morning Texas!

We had GREAT morning this Monday on Good Morning Texas! With the coming premiere of the new ABC show Pan Am, which centers around the iconic airline in the 1960s, the producers of the Dallas morning show put together an entire program about travel. Aside from having two of the most adorable retired Pan Am flight attendants ever, they had us! (Because you can't have a show about travel bags and carry-ons without Lug!) Here we are on set (left), and here's a link to the segment. Watch and check out our travel essentials and must-have carry-ons for fall.

Lug Fit Club: Getting Fit is Even More Fun

By now you should know that the Lug team is getting fit. But then we asked ourselves, "Selves! Why should we just get fit when we can have FUN too?"

Well, it was an easy decision to try to add more fun. But how? ... hmmm ...


So we did. Check it out (pictured).

Now, we're traveling across North America on a quest to make it across the continent and back. Sure, there will be challenges along the way (at each checkpoint you'll open an envelope that will hold your fate—will it be a physical challenge, like 10 burpees? Will it be a mental challenge, like knowing your geography? Or will you catch a pitfall and be banished until you complete a more difficult challenge?). But there will also be surprise prizes, and, of course, an ultimate winner!

Hope our friendly little office competition (which will continue through December) inspires some other LugNuts out there to get fit!

Tell us: What do you do to get fit?

Friday Yoga: Finding Calm in the Crazy

So, last Friday our lovely Lugger Freda, who also happens to be a talented yoga teacher and leader of our Friday yoga class, decided to take the group outside for a little impromptu outdoor yoga.

"It was definitely a different experience from doing it in the gym," she says. "The idea was that it would be a serene outdoor experience; however, tractors and lawnmowers showed up midway to prep the lawn for back-to-school."

You Zen some, you lose some, eh? (bah-dum-dum-ching!)

But when clever Freda was served lemons, she made lemonade. "I used the metaphor of what this looks like for us in our daily lives, where sometimes there's a lot of noise trying to distract us from what's important, but it's in these times that we need to hone in and focus. Then, if we can get through it, the benefit is even greater!"

Brilliant! Brilliant, I say! Well done, Freda, and all you yogis out there. Way to rack up points in the Lug Fit Club!

What's in Your Bag?

It's always fun to take a peek inside someone's bag. Especially a Lug bag! I'm always amazed at what I can fit inside, so with that in mind, I thought I'd start a new blog segment called "What's in Your Bag?" ... Mkay, I'll start. In my Puddle Jumper (which just so happens to be my very first Lug bag [3.5 years and running!] and my very first Lug love), I have ...

1. My computer. I rarely leave home without it.
2. Because of #1, I've also got my computer cord and a random assortment of other computer accessories, like a flash drive, earbuds, usb cord, etc.
3. My notebook. I am a writer, after all.
4. Snacks. Girl's gotta eat.
5. Napkins. Does anyone else stuff the extra napkins you get at restaurants into your bag? Picked that habit up from my great grandmother.
6. Five lip glosses and a ChapStick. I'm addicted.
7. Cell phone. You know, when it's not in my hand.
8. Wallet & keys.
9. Sunscreen and sunglasses. (That sun sure shines bright deep in the heart of Texas.)
10. Book. (Currently David McCullough's The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris)
11. A couple of pencils and pens.
12. A random card from my mom. (Gotta love that.)
13. A watch that no longer works and a necklace that never made it back to the jewelry box.
14. A couple of random hair clips, spare change, and crumpled up receipts/grocery lists/coupons.

That's about it at the moment. So, whatcha got in your bag? Send me a picture and a list at, and I may choose you for my next "What's in Your Bag?" feature!
