10 Alternative Bachelor Party Destinations

While the key to an epic bachelor party is adding an element of surprise, that doesn’t mean a member of your group has to wake up with a tattooed face. From the Baja outback in Mexico to a whiskey lover’s paradise in Portland, here are 10 kick-ass places to hang with your bros before walking down the aisle.

1. Portland, Oregon
Why go: Distillery Row. The 1.5-mile stretch is home to six craft distilleries filled with vodkas and gins, rums and whiskeys, and even specialties such as absinthe and aquavit. Spring for the Distillery Row Passport for tastings and behind-the-scenes tours. If you’re still thirsty, the Multnomah Whiskey Library carries about 1,000 bottles of whiskey. Just don’t drink on an empty stomach: At the Trifecta Tavern, order up the grilled bone marrow and the Big-Ass Steak, a 16-ounce, 28-day dry-aged ribeye.

Stay: The sleek two-room Dream Suite at Jupiter Hotel has a bar and a living room with plenty of couch space for your crew to pre-party. Bonus: It’s less than a mile away from Distillery Row.
2. Los Cabos, Mexico
Why go: The southern tip of the Baja peninsula is all about play—no wonder Justin Timberlake chose Los Cabos for his bachelor party. Spend a day at one of the 14 world-renowned golf courses in the area, and when you’re ready to swap clubs for swim trunks, charter a fishing boat to sail the Sea of Cortez. You’ll see more striped marlin than anywhere else in the world.

Stay: Esperanza’s “Peak Performance” package is made for a guys’ weekend: professional desert racing in the Baja outback, private tequila tasting and cigar sampling, and a complementary TRX class.

3. South Lake Tahoe, California
Why go: America’s largest alpine lake is a Mecca for any outdoor enthusiast. Skydiving, parasailing, kayaking, horseback riding, ATVs . . . the list goes on. Hop the state line to Nevada and you’ll hear the ringing of the slot machines. Channel Frank Sinatra with your own Rat Pack as you revel at Harrah’s and Harveys casinos.

Stay: Make The Landing your home base. This new lakeside resort caters to all your bachelor party needs: a Mountain Recovery massage, potential Heidi Klum sightings (she’s a regular), chauffeured trips to the casinos, and a lit-up toilet bowl to help you aim in the middle of the night—a.k.a. the manliest amenity ever.

4. Vancouver, British Columbia
Why go: Grouse Mountain hosts the wildly-entertaining Lumberjack Show, complete with log rolling, a 60-foot tree climb, and axe throwing—just don’t get any ideas for your own shenanigans. Indulge your inner geek at Xcape, a Da Vinci Code-like-puzzle game experience, or take the more traditional route and party it up at FiveSixty, a 28,000-square-foot nightclub with three floors for dancing.

Stay: Ask about the Lumberjack Package at the downtown Loden Hotel, which offers cabin-themed rooms with onesies, flannel shirts, and trapper hats to get you in the spirit for the Grouse Mountain show. Its proximity to the waterfront and the iconic seawall in the Coal Harbour neighborhood is just another perk.

5. Moab, Utah
Why go: It’s a must-visit for adrenaline junkies. The epic scenery of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks is the perfect backdrop for rock climbing, mountain biking, and tandem base-jumping if you have skydiving experience.

Stay: At Moab Under Canvas, an outdoor resort that opened last month, you can experience the desert without having to worry about a rattlesnake in your sleeping bag. The tents and teepees are on the outskirts of these red rock country parks.

6. San Diego, California
Why go: Looking for something urban without the chaos of a big city? This is it. With 70 miles of coastline, surfing is king here. Mission Bay’s calm waters are especially great for learning to stand-up paddleboard. Once the sun sets, head to the Gaslamp Quarter, a 16-block party strip filled with rooftop bars, nightclubs, and even burlesque venues, like the Pussycat Dollhouse at The Keating Hotel.

Stay: Cure your hangover at the Mediterranean-inspired Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. While there’s no shame in lounging by the pool sipping OJ, know that the resort just launched an “All Agave” tasting program that explores the Mexican spirits. Super perk: You’re privy to borrow one of the hotel’s three Porsches. Take the convertible to explore the hilltop vineyards nearby.

7. Austin, Texas
Why go: Austin has more than 250 live music venues, and there’s a festival every month, including the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) in March. Come October, Austin City Limits showcases more than 130 indie, rock, and folk acts on eight stages. In the meantime, head to Speakeasy, a three-level lounge with a 1920s vibe and vintage bowling lanes.

Stay: The poolside bungalows at Hotel Saint Cecilia are equivalent to crashing at your coolest friend’s bachelor pad. This boutique property is just a 5-minute drive from downtown and the Anthony Bourdain-approved Franklin Barbecue, known for its “supernatural” brisket. Get there early—it sells out every day.

8. Brooklyn, New York
Why go: It’s essentially a compilation of super-cool neighborhoods. Start your tour in Smorgasburg, Williamsburg’s street-food market haven—and home of the legendary Ramen Burger. Make a pit stop in Dumbo for Grimaldi’s brick-oven pizza and Brooklyn Bridge photos. End the night at Prospect Heights’ Barclays Center to catch a concert.

Stay: DJs spin at Hotel BPM every Friday and Saturday until 3 a.m. This modern enclave, founded by DJ Bijal, has soundproof rooms so you can blast the pregame playlist and no one will complain. Bonus: Ask about the complimentary DJing session to learn how to scratch on real turntables.

9. Tucson, Arizona
Why go: Let the Sonoran desert be your playground for the weekend. Horseback riding, spelunking, and stargazing through the 32-inch telescope at Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter will give your guys’ weekend a whole new perspective.

Stay: A dude ranch may not pop up on your party-planning radar, but when else are you going to pen an eight-cattle herd? The all-inclusive Tanque Verde Ranch, nestled between the Rincon Mountains and the Saguaro National Park, is your Wild West domain. But don’t worry: You can take a break from the cowboy duties. The ranch covers 600 acres of Southwestern terrain riddled with single-track mountain bike trails.

10. Put-in-Bay, Ohio
Why go: Known as the “Key West of the Midwest,” Put-in-Bay is a small island in Lake Erie filled with marinas, restaurants, and pool bars—including Splash, the largest swim-up pool bar in the world. It’s perfect for a crew looking to relive Spring Break memories and party without spending a fortune.

Stay: Rent a lakefront cabin on HomeAway.com—you’ll be glad to have some quiet in the morning after a night of debauchery.

Pet Health Insurance

Recent revelations in scientific research have provided pet owners with the means to now save their beloved family pets from injuries and diseases that would have caused the pet to be euthanized in the not so distant past. The sad news is that when the unthinkable happens and a pet life hangs in the balance most pet owners find that they are unable to afford the often staggering price of the treatments which can range from $3000-$10000 and some cases even more, and are forced to euthanize their pets anyway. It is in these instances that pet owners wish they had the foresight to purchase a pet health insurance policy.Pet health insurance is similar to human health insurance. Pet owners who purchase pet health insurance plans from pet health insurance companies do so for a variety of reasons. Pet insurance makes health care more affordable because, at its core, pet insurance is a way to budget a small amount in anticipation of a large veterinary bill. Pet insurance reimburses you on your vet bills when your pet is sick or injured, to help take the financial worry out of vet visits.

They might be intrigued by the idea that they will be able to save on their pets annual trip to the vet or they might just be worried that if a serious health crisis develops they wont be able to afford the treatment.

Varsity BallPet owners can pick from a variety of plants such as pet fatality/mortality insurance, major medical insurance, and basic medical insurance (policy names may vary from company to company.) Many pet health care insurance companies offer option a variety of additional riders to complement the pet health care insurance plan.

Mortality/fatality pet insurance is similar to human life insurance. The owner pays a premium every month the pet is alive in any event of its death the owner is reimbursed a predetermined amount of money. While the mortality/fatality insurance does not take the sting out of losing a beloved family pet it may help of any additional medical bills that accumulated at the end of your pet’s life. Many owners used the check to assist with purchasing a new family pet. One thing’s owners should be aware of when they possess AA mortality/fatality pet insurance plan is that most companies require that the owner contact them be for the pet is euthanized. They will often asked to speak to the veterinarian in charge of your pet’s case.

Basic medical health insurance typically  covers accidents, illnesses, emergency care, and much more. One popular insurance company offers a plan that pays from cuts to cancer up to $1000; most pet owners use this plan for emergencies only. Pet owners are advised to purchase a pet health care insurance plan as early in their pet’s life as possible. Many insurance companies and veterinarians point out that most freak accidents happen in the early years of a pet’s life. Owners should be aware that most pet health insurance plans do not convert genetic dis-orders that develop in certain breeds and some of the more expensive surgeries. Most insurance plans also will not touch pre-existing conditions

Horse owners may want to consider purchasing a loss of use policy for their horses. A loss of use policy pays if the force is injured so badly it is no longer able to be ridden or bred, but is not so badly injured to justify euthanizing the animal.

Feminized Marijuana Seeds

In this article let’s talk about feminized marijuana seeds.

Feminized marijuana seeds are seeds that only produce female marijuana plants. But there are some misconceptions about marijuana, feminized marijuana seeds and hermaphrodites (plants that display intersexuality) which should be addressed. Unlike more complex organisms, marijuana is not firmly one sex or the other. #1 CANNABIS SEEDS SUPPLIER MARIJUANA SEEDSIt’s a very unusual plant in that it’s an annual plant that is also dioeciously (producing separate male and female flowers on different plants), however every marijuana plant has the ability to produce flowers of the opposite sex under certain circumstances.

It’s a survival mechanism for the plant, allowing marijuana to succeed and reproduce while being both annual and dioeciously. There are marijuana plants that become intersexual quite easy, in response to stress in the growing environment such as temperature fluctuations, irregularity, physical damage, light cycle, etc. Sensible seeds logoThis is a survival response – the marijuana plant detects that growing conditions are not favorable, which means that its chances of reproduction lower. Poor conditions mean that a marijuana plant is less likely to survive the complete season, and also that there’s less chance a marijuana plant of the opposite sex is close enough to pollinate it. In these conditions, some female marijuana plants will grow staminate flowers (which are male) in order to produce their own pollen, fertilize their own pistil flowers (female) and produce seeds which will grow again the following season. Male marijuana plants will sometimes grow pistil flowers, but this is less common.

Early feminized marijuana seeds usually were made with two female marijuana plants, one of which had been identified as having hermaphrodite tendencies, i.e. prone to produce male marijuana flowers when it was stressed. The intersexual-prone marijuana plant would be stressed with light cycle interruption or pruning and encouraged to produce male marijuana flowers, the pollen from which would be applied to the ‘true’ female (i.e. a plant that did not easily display intersexuality when stressed). #1 CANNABIS SEEDS SUPPLIER MARIJUANA SEEDSThe downside of this method was that the female marijuana ‘pollen donors’ were individuals which had quite a strong tendency to turn intersexual, and that this tendency was very likely to be inherited by the feminized seeds produced in this way.

Using different forms of silver, female marijuana plants with a very minor tendency to turn intersexual – plants that would stay female even in harsh, irregular, stressful conditions – could be forced to produce male marijuana flowers. This means that their offspring have no more tendency that a normal female marijuana plant to turn intersexual. The feminized strains sold by I Love Growing Marijuana are produced in this way. In short, intersexuality is a fundamental part of the marijuana genome. Each individual marijuana plant simply has a greater or lesser tendency to turn hermaphrodite, in response to different conditions. In addition, the marijuana plants used to make feminized marijuana seeds are definitely not genetically modified! No genes are added or removed. If anything, the parent marijuana plants are physically modified through the use of silver and the seeds are produced in the usual way, through pollination.

Sensible SeedsDoes it mean all plants grown from feminized marijuana seeds will be female?

All marijuana plants grown from the feminized strains sold in our marijuana seed shop will be genetically female. An often heard argument in regards to feminized marijuana seeds is the problem of hermaphrodites. In the early days of feminized marijuana seeds this might have happened but nowadays hermaphrodites are very rare. All feminized marijuana seeds sold in our webshop are as stable as regular marijuana seeds. New feminizing techniques and an intensive, multi-stage breeding programs make sure that today’s feminized marijuana seeds are 100% stable, consistent and very productive.

Power Tool Safety Equipment

During the Industrial Revolution these hand tools increasingly became machine power tools, for example the hand spindle became a spinning jenny and the productivity of wool manufacture took a large step forward. Power tools are powered by electricity, both from cables and from batteries. Regardless of the setting or the project, power tool safety is something everyone needs to abide by. While power tools are very helpful, they are also sharp. Serious injury and even death can occur if you don’t use them properly.

While most businesses require employees to use the right safety equipment when operating power tools, there is nothing to regulate this process when you use them at home. Many individuals fail to use the proper safety equipment because they don’t want the added expense of purchasing it. Others choose not to use safety equipment because they are in a hurry or because they are very comfortable using particular power tools.

The specific safety equipment you will need depends on the power tool you are operating. Each instruction manual will have information on the recommended safety equipment you should have on when you operate that power tool. There are several common safety items you should have readily available.

Eye injuries in the workplace are very common, thus safety goggles are essential. There is always the chance of hazards such as dirt, debris, or fragments of materials getting into your eyes. Sometimes saw blades break and pieces fly into the air. Protecting your eyes is very important. Heavy duty work gloves are good to have if you are working with any sharp objects including sheet metal. A full face shield will protect even more when you are using certain power tools.

If an accident occurs an user wearing the right personal protective clothing can reduce their risk of injuries. It is a good idea to wear long sleeves to prevent burns and cuts, but make sure that the clothing isn’t too loose. If it is, you risk it getting tangled up with the power tool. Tuck in shirts and only wear clothing that fits you properly. Pay attention to your shoes as well. Make sure they have a non-slip sole. For some power tools, it is a good idea to wear steel toed boots while operating them.

Some power tools are very loud. Ear plugs are a great way of providing comprehensive protection for user’s hearing. Good ear plugs can reduce loud noises that can harm your  ears. Hearing loss is a serious issue, and you should do all you can to maintain your current hearing level.

A respirator is a good idea if you will be working with any power tool that creates dust including sanders and routers. It is a good idea to make sure you have a source of fresh air getting into your work area as well. A respirator ensures you won’t be inhaling harmful chemicals or dust that is generated.

Power tools definitely are fun to use and reduce the time it takes to complete a project. However, it is essential that you take the time to wear the proper safety equipment when you operate them. The investment is well worth saving your from injuries or even death. It doesn’t matter how careful you are, how many times you have used the power tool before, how big of a hurry you are in, or how small of a job it is. Accidents involving power tools happen in a split second, so do your best to prevent for them.
