No Great American Novel Here
Seeking to write a great American novel, Doug’s life became a wonderful
adventure story. Imagine journeying by bus, Land Rover, train,
sailboat, powerboat, and single-engine plane from Guadalajara to Machu
Picchu to Nairobi to Kealakekua.
Backpacking, tent camping, and van camping through 67 US state and
national parks, and scaring himself by canoeing in an early October
blizzard in the Grand Tetons. Kayaking 86 miles through the Sea of
Cortez with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), and naively
cross-country skiing into a herd of wild Buffalo in Wyoming.
Then realizing, after all those experiences that burning the candle at
both ends and having bizarre conversations with many peculiar
storytellers at more than 1,000 campfires failed to produce the next
great American novel!
Like many dreamy adventurers, he planned to sail from Hawaii to
Polynesia, but he hasn’t made it yet. Instead, he moved from Kona to
Ft. Lauderdale to sail a 46’ Nova Scotia schooner from Bermuda to St.
Barts. He survived a few scary winter storms at sea, but he’s thankful
for encountering mostly sunny skies and smooth sailing.
After owning a few boats, Doug realized he needed a better boat, so he
had to go back to work to earn a bucket of money. That path led to his
wonderful wife and two kids, so it was clearly the right decision.
As Doug’s career journey progressed, he worked as a filmmaker, TV
producer and direct-response TV marketer producing over 800 half-hour
TV shows and thousands of commercials. He stretched his limited
patience at advertising agencies, business start-ups and corporate
One of his consulting clients was Dometic Corporation, and he was
invited to join this international consumer-products company. As the VP
of Marketing, Doug enjoyed designing new product-launch strategies to
engage RV and marine buyers and successfully earning the company 17
innovation and best product awards, year over year revenue increases
and eventually taking the company public.
Doug is delighted that the internet has become the new TV. Several
like-minded entrepreneurs encouraged him to leverage his RV knowledge
and experience to publish and produce stories for NetworkRV.com. Making
Smart Buyers Smarter is NetworkRV’s mission.
People who love the outdoor lifestyle continuously encounter challenges
and search for answers to their problems. NetworkRV’s mission addresses
these issues and provides great new product information and reviews to
share with consumers, dealers and other bloggers.
In the coming year, Doug’s next outdoor adventure will be discovering
new secret places for quiet thinking and extreme ocean kayak sailing.
In the meantime, he enjoy’s making new professional relationships, so
contact him if you want to chat or discuss a project.
