Week in Review - The Knuckle Hopping Edition

Good morning from the Toronto International Airport where I am waiting for my flight home to Portland, Maine. This week I had the privilege of presenting in Paramus, New Jersey and Grande Prairie, Alberta. I always learn something new when I travel. In Paramus I learned about Blue Laws and in Grande Prairie I learned about knuckle hopping. In Grande Prairie I knuckle hopped for the first time in my life. You can see the video of it below (click here if the video is not visible to you). Thanks to Lorne Toews for the video.
