travel guide:

the gary ruins.

The ghost town of Gary, Indiana is a stone’s throw from Chicago—you can even see it from some of the tallest skyscrapers downtown. But the birthplace of the Jackson Five has long since been mostly abandoned to let nature take its course. It’s an eerie and fascinating look at what happens when the people just… leave. There’s something new to examine every time we go—last month we tiptoed around the collapsed train station, the massive old amphitheater, the peeling high school, and peered into the windows of houses that have been lonely for decades. It never fails to astound me how quickly nature (and graffiti artists) reclaim unused space.

The photo trips require a tetanus shot before you charge your camera batteries are the best kind.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
