Gentlemen...
Start Your Lists!

This month, Chesterfield Lifestyle celebrates our male readers with our “Men’s Issue.”  I have had the pleasure of meeting many of our gentlemen readers at Chesterfield Lifestyle events and have received a variety of emails from our male readers regarding favorite articles, ideas for features and responses to our mystery picture feature. We are delighted that our carefully chosen and local content appeals to all members of our reader audience.

This issue unlocks some secrets to living a fulfilling, exciting life—a male “bucket list” edition, if you will. Don’t have a bucket list? Basically it is a list of all the things you would like to experience before your number is up (and you kick the bucket—okay, I said it.) Rather than looking at it as a morbid task, look at it as creating a dream list of things you would like to do in your life—heck, you can even call it something else if you like. The point is, Men, that you never stop wishing and dreaming and you make a point to try new things; that combination makes life richer—at any age.

So, what to put on your list?  Well, Forbes Magazine recently listed the top 25 life regrets that men have when the end of their life is in sight. Tops on the list were wishes that: more time was spent with family in travel experiences/more trips taken and that men wished they hadn’t taken life so seriously and simply had more fun.

Sounds simple enough…as a service to our gentlemen readers we have provided some ideas to kick start your lists. (Okay, you got me…pun intended)

So, about those trips…ever consider purchasing a luxury RV and hitting the road? Read about the many advantages of traveling this way on page 16.  And now, about having more FUN…Learn about a local company called Noxxu, on page 34, that puts the fun back in driving and you can drive dream cars on a professional track. Well now…we’ve helped with items #1 and #2; the rest are up to you!

Happy Father’s Day!

Yours in Community,
