Hancock, MichiganJanuary 5th, 2017 – I rang in the brand new year in the Keweenaw with my friend Jerry–and with the power of Skype–my friend Lars from Florida.  We decided to set up a camera and Skype with my buddy Lars. When we connected he was sitting on his couch with his wife by his side…. he was completely caught off guard.

Originally, we were going to have a few brews at a couple local bars in Hancock. Jerry and I decided to scrap that idea and stay at his place. We had a couple shots with my buddy Lars over Skype. Lars talked us out of going out to the bars and convinced us to stay put for the night. It was the right decision to make since we were catching up and getting ready for the ball to drop on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. It was a memorable night all thanks to Skype!

Happy 2017!
