Dot Com Lifestyle = Backyard Rocket Attacks

During Sally’s 4th birthday party, she was given some Nerf rockets. I had to admit I was more excited by the rockets than she was because I just love shooting things at people. The rockets are capable of going up 100 feet and requires a nice big landing area, especially on a windy day. Fortunately, this backyard proved to be an ideal test site.

While the Dot Com Lifestyle allows me work from anywhere in the world, its biggest benefit is it gives me the time freedom to spend it on the most important thing in life. And today, the most important thing was shooting rockets in the backyard, trying to hijack the sea plane next door and relaxing on the dock.

    John,
    Another awesome video! Nerf products are so much fun. I love your backyard. Is that your boat? Great stuff!
    All the best,
    Ian

    1. I also enjoyed the video. Sally and the dog, John and everybody had fun.

      1. Boy … sunny day, family and river side.

        You can not ask for more.

      I too was wondering if that was his boat.

  2. ^^ A nice day to spend time with sally and your wife. It really seems that you are more excited with the rocket compare to her, John. I really envy your dot com lifestyle. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Great example of how a dot.com lifestyle means you work on your terms and still have time for play. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The boats is yours John?

    Thatโ€™s what I love about the position Iโ€™m in, I get to take my daughter to school everyday, Iโ€™m there to collect her later and Iโ€™m always on hand if she needs or wants to spend some time with me.

    Glad to see you had fun with the Rocketโ€™s at Sallyโ€™s party.

    Well that is pretty sweet. Was that lake Washington, or somewhere down in California? Cute kid. Great lifestyle you lead!

    1. John Chow says:

      That’s Lake Washington. If it was California, it would have big waves and we’ll be surfing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Dan Lew says:

        John, this looks a lot different from the video I saw you in your old house back yard with the grizzly bear! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Wish it was California. Didn’t saw you surfing in the last ThinkTank event. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Sounds like great fun, and a great way to tire a toddler out ๐Ÿ˜‰ Actually the toddler and the dog at the same time!, I would say nerf rockets are a very practical parenting tool ๐Ÿ˜‰ SY
    PS Is the dog yours?

  7. It looks like you are still a kid at heart, John. Good for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. terrific video! I tried to use before Nerf products and i really get so much fun on it! Great stuff!

  9. Looks pretty neat with the lake view and all. Congrats.. Sally is an angel and congrats on that. Hope you all stay safe and together always. God bless you.

    Also, i hope that the rockets have a really blunt and soft point at front, otherwise it might not be a good idea to shoot them off when sally and the dog is in the landing area.. Just a pointer. It seems that you know about it’s range and all, so it is safe, but i was just pointing out that…

    Good luck.

    Hello John,

    indeed it think you are missing a boat for leisure also…..
    but one thing you quite right, the best thing in some men life are their son and daughters.
    About the Dot Com lifestyle, maybe in a no so far future I can do it also.

    Best regards
    Soares
