Read my article in HILuxury on Montana’s Ranch at Rock Creek

HILuxury: The Ranch at Rock CreekHILuxury‘s October/November 2012 issue contained an article I wrote about a visit to Montana’s Ranch at Rock Creek:

My favorite part of the issue, however, was the editor’s letter which says, “We reached deep into our arsenal to attain the best travel writers and tastemakers.” When the postman delivered my copy of the magazine, I was wearing pajama pants, hospital socks and a commemorative “Coalition Provisional Authority” t-shirt. The tastemaker reference made me feel a little better about myself.

Catering to Hawaii’s luxury markets, HILuxury features articles on fashion, travel, homes, dining, cars, and social gatherings. Filled with stunning fashion spreads, the latest dining spots, and insightful interviews, HILuxuryis the connoisseur of Hawaii’s finer things and more. A bimonthly publication, its circulation of 20,000 is targeted towards readers who are influential and armed with discriminating tastes.

Thanks—again—to the Ranch at Rock Creek for accommodating my family and to Christina McGoldrick, Jared Rodriguez, and Meredith Strodel at Victoria King Public Relations.

Read my article in Louisville Bride on Montana’s Ranch at Rock Creek

Last week I shared a video of me silently drinking alone at The Ranch at Rock Creek. Now, via Louisville Bride‘s Fall/Winter 2012 issue, you can read my thoughts on the lux ranch (executive summary: it is very nice).

My two-page piece ran with one on a tropical honeymoon spot written by the magazine’s editor, Melissa Duley. The plan is to highlight two destinations that appeal for opposite reasons in future issues. Any suggestions?

Published semi-annually in January and July, Louisville Bride has all the information a local bride-to-be needs to plan the perfect wedding and honeymoon. Its circulation is 30,000 issues. The publication is included with subscriptions to Louisville Magazine and available at 50 local bridal shows and many bookstore newsstands and wedding-related retailers.

Thanks to the Ranch at Rock Creek for accommodating my family and to Christina McGoldrick and Meredith Strodel at Victoria King Public Relations for arranging my visit.

Travel Channel special ‘Wild West Glamping’ shows me drinking, alone

My back on the Travel Channel's "Wild West Glamping"The Travel Channel was filming at Montana’s Ranch at Rock Creek for a special on glamping (glamorous + camping—I know, awful) when my family visited last summer. Not having cable TV, I promptly forgot about it.

But last week, when researching the ranch for an upcoming article for Louisville Bride, I found a segment from the special, “Wild West Glamping.” Skip to 1:48 to see me from behinnd, saddled up at the bar (literally—the barstools  were saddles), sipping Montana whiskey, alone. My wife was enjoying our canvas cabin too much to want to leave it; I, however, needed to research the bar. Sacrifice.

Watch the segment from the Travel Channel’s “Wild West Glamping” here.

2011 highlights: Israel, Rome, and Wall Street Journal and Fox News articles about home

Traveling with daddy on his work trips, like to Montana's Ranch at Rock Creek, can be rough on a girl.

Traveling with daddy on his work trips, like to Montana's Ranch at Rock Creek, can be rough on a girl.

And I’m spent.

2011 work highlights included having a full-page spread in The Wall Street Journal, trips to Israel and Rome, and Louisville.com becoming the city’s most-read independent website and winning a couple of big honors in the process.

Luckily my wife and daughter were able to join me on many of my trips. The latter turns two next week and already has visited 18 states and Washington, DC. We got her a passport this year, but it might be a few months at least before she’s able to get her first stamp—her little sister is slated to arrive in February.

Here are some of my writing and travel highlights for 2011:

Howdy from Montana

Howdy from The Ranch at Rock Creek

Greetings from me and Little Joe at The Ranch at Rock Creek.

To quote myself, (this site is ZachEverson.com and I’m Zach Everson, so it’s ok): “I’ve long argued to anyone who will listen (so probably no one), that no states in the country are as underappreciated for their natural beauty as Montana and Idaho.”

I’m in Montana for the next nine days, delighting in just how accurate that statement is.

For the next two nights I’m at The Ranch at Rock Creek, a luxury vacation ranch in Montana (for more on The Ranch, read this article I wrote about it for UpTake). After that it’s six nights in Big Sky at the Big Sky Resort’s Huntley Lodge.

Day one at The Ranch at Rock Creek has been amazing. As much fun as my wife and I are having—gourmet lunch, horseback riding, child care—our 18-month-old daughter seems to be having more fun—an abundance of Cheerios, ponies to watch, a fun person to play with instead of Mom and Dad.

Interested in joining the rodeo in real time? Mosey on over to the social media accounts:

Thanks to the Ranch at Rock Creek and Christina McGoldrick and Meredith Strodel at Victoria King Public Relations for arranging my stay there. And thanks to my wife for letting me tag along with her to her conference in Big Sky.
