Big Boy Toys


While in Orlando for a business seminar recently, I took some time to go Dream Build with some of my friends. This is one of the all time coolest places ive ever been to. Its called “Muscle Cars and Handlebars” and it is as close to Heaven a Gearhead can get. What better combination can there be?


Here is one of their projects. A 1969 Road Runner. Yes, it has the Big motor. Yes they hopped it up. Yes it is putting out over 700 HP. Yes its faster than you want to go!


Pure American Muscle, in perfect condition !


This Plymouth Challenger is only  $250,000  New it was 3,900.00


Ah Yes, the Handlebars part. The 2 guys between Campbell and Toby are 2 of the very best metal fabricators and painters in the World. these guys can restore, or create Anything you can find or dream up. They are Artists that work in a shop.


Camero anyone? With a Big Block 427?



Yep, its the famous Holly 4 Barrel. Gas guzziling at its fines! This is the polar oposit of a Prius.


Vintage is cool, but New is Awesome. Here is the Ferrari 458, arguably the best sports car the public can buy. A true Supercar.


Stephen, 23, taliking about Driving one of these by the age of 26, how cool is that?


This baby is only $280,000 and its not even packed with all the options you can get.


Here is longtime friend and business partner Herb Eply.


Stephen, Herb, Campbell with the Ferrari California Spyder ( convertible )


All this Dream Building made us Very hungry. So we went to one of my top 5 Steak Houses anywhere, Charley`s in Orlando. Gary, Toby and Roger with wives had an awesome dining experience.


After we toured Tobys new digs, we went to see Gary and Nancy`s Estate. What a way to live. What a Life, LW Livin the Dream

Pebble Beach Golf Course Part 1

I am not much of a golfer. If its perfect weather, a great course, im in. I’ll play 9, maybe 12 holes, and im good to go. However, on a course like this its much Different! I love playing World Class, World Famous courses, the same ones we all watch the pros play on TV. Courses like this are inspiring. I will tell you, hitting off the famous 17th tee box here, knowing the history it holds in PGA tournament play is awesome! For me, it would be like standing in the batters box at historic Fenway Park in Boston, but thats not a possible, and this was. Walking down the 18th fairway, side by side with two of my best friends is a memory ill never forget. Standing on the green, with a Caddy, and my friends Joe and Greg, is what makes a great life. For all of you who Love golf, you play any course you can, anytime you can, you Must experience this course, as well as SpyGlass and the Links at Spanish Bay. Until then, I hope you enjoy these images and words. LW


Walking thru the gate, 7 am, preparing for our 8am tee time.

Real golf. My caddy Dean, the official PB starter, and my golf partner Greg.

Video: Baja

Just back from San Diego, Ca. Went out there with a bunch of friends and business partners, all who were top Achievers in their business.
A few of us headed out into the high desert for some 4 wheeling, dirt bike riding. Beautiful wide open country. Perfect weather. My riding partners were
Toby Ayers, Tom Miller, Edmund St. John, Kelly Brimmer and Bill Faudel. Although some of the guys were off road challenged, we had an absolute blast. Faudel was our “Guide” and he was following a hand drawn map, made with a crayon! Do you have any idea how lost we got? But, he did lead us to the 2010 Baja 1000 Trophy truck champ testing his new 2011 ride. It’s a 850 HP Trophy Truck that goes 120 mph in the desert for 1000 miles thru Mexico. (Check out how close up and personal Toby got to the truck! But, he got the shot with his trusty Iphone!)

Click HERE to see a quick video of our day in the Desert. Enjoy, LDub

All Access with Coach K

One of the best opportunities I`ve been blessed with the last few years is getting to attend a closed, private practice session with Legendary Coach K. By supporting Dukes Childrens Hospital, Pam and I are invited to attend a closed practice every October, hosted by Karen McClure and Coach K`s daughter Debbie. Well, Pam loves the work Duke Childrens Hospital does, and Coach K, but she gladly gives up her invitation to let someone else attend this very rare and unique opportunity. This is total access to the Duke basketball program, and the incredable Duke facilities, giving us access to many things only the players themselves ever see. Wel, L-Dub Style now gives you a all access tour. Enjoy, L-Dub

Greg, Jake, LW, SW, Toby

Coach K only opens his practice to non players once a season. This was my 6th session. Now you get in to see it…

How cool is this? The Duke locker room.

Andrew, on hallowed ground !

Talk about all access. The players lounge, and the 08-09 ACC Championship trophy.

Standards. This is what seperate teams from programs.

Without a doubt one of the coolest parts of the tour. This is what Duke is Always known for, Defense. This is the Defense room, the last place the players go before they hit the court. Here, Debbie explaines the tradition.

Greg in the media room. This is where the team watches tape, videos and motivational messages Coach K has made for the team. We saw,” This is our House”, it was insane!

Coach K taking questions and talking about leadership. Thats Stephen and the Etheridge boys on the front row.

Coach K and WoJo talking to the team about their blue white scrimmage.

The Crew: Shawn, Stephen, Ricky, Chris, Greg, Aaron, Andrew, Danny, LW, David. Jake is stalking WoJo.

WoJo coaches the white team. He is somewhat Intense. Just like he played.

These guys are Pretty good!!!

This is the Team that won the NCAA Title this year. Minus Curry, who was Red-Shirted. Duke will be even better this year than last. Curry will dominate.

This is everyone at the private practice. My crew was 1/3 of the people. It dosent get much more intimate than this. Thats Stephen on the Left of Coach, Ricky on the Right.

This is called Quality Time. Up close and personal.

Greg holds the Duke Rock.

Ricky, with a few of Dukes championship banners. Ricky appreciates excellence, and theres plenty of it here.

I love sharing my life with my friends, blessing them with cool opportunities like this. Andrew and Danny with Coach.

Jake Loves basketball, and Coach K.

After practice, we have dinner with Coach and he talks and answers questions, all in the shadows of the Championship banners.

This is absoutley one of the top events of my year. I love sharing it with my kids and friends. And now with you. This years event is in 3 weeks ! Pam and I were at the Championship game, so this will be the best private practice ever.

PNC Park, #22, Pirates

I don`t think i`ll be able to write words to describe these photos. Wow dosent do it justice. What a view, skyline?

#22 along the way to 30, but maybe #1 ? This is a spectacular ballpark. they dropped it right into Downtown Pittsburgh.

A thunderstorm rolled thru about a hour before the game. Once it cleared out, it left a postcard quality sky.

My ballpark guests for this trip were Son in Law Matt, and friends and business partners Blake and Chelesa.

Its difficult to watch the game with the scenery so spectacular. And, its the Pirates and Nationals playing, so…

This view almost looks fake?

The skys darkened up, but night fell, so it didnt matter much. We already got to see the beautiful sky.

Blake and Chelesa.

This is me asking Matt which team is better, Pirates or the Orioles? Yes, very funny…

Ok, there are many facets to a great ballpark experience. The food is one of them. Well, this food was a good as the view.

I love New Ballparks !

The Bridge in centerfield is just outside the wall.

If you ever get near this park, you must check it out.
