Want to document and share your hike with friends and family?
So I thought I’d make a post about my trail name. I have been a cocktail fanatic for years. I love the history of cocktails and after a motorcycle accident caused me to be bed ridden for a couple months, it was suggested I tried podcasting. I ran a podcast called Behind The Bar Show and went by Mr. Martini. It took off more than I could have ever expected and I made friends around the world thru it. After moving from SF back to my childhood area of Central Florida, I started bartending full time. I am now an assistant manager at a family owned Bar & Grill. Well, that is until after today. Today is my last day at work. It’s bitter sweet. Anyway, back to the trail name:
I had a dream. I was at my bar really late at night and it was packed. People standing all over the place! I walked thru the swinging doors from the kitchen with my pack on, hands raised in the air and I yelled, “LAST CALL!” Everyone applauded as I walked straight out the front doors and was immediately on trail. I woke up and it was so vivid! I told all my bartenders and servers this dream and they all determined that had to be my trail name. I was “Last Call.” I loved it and decided that’s what I would go by. I’m saying last call to one passion to take on another.
Hope you all enjoy following my journey (to my friends and family following this on the website) or hope to see you on trail (to my fellow hikers following on the app).
