letter from the editor

OVER TWO decades ago, I chased after my now wife across the globe. I learned a lot about love—but I learned even more about how freaking big this blue ball we live on is. Young and without a lot of travel experience, I flew blindly from New York to Tokyo, from Tokyo to Singapore, from Singapore to Jakarta, and from Jakarta to Bali. Landing in Bali, 36 hours after leaving home, I didn’t know what to expect. There were no travel blogs to point me to the hip restaurants and bars, no Google Maps to help me find the hostel, and perhaps most frighteningly, I wasn’t even sure the girl would be there to meet me at the airport. (Communication wasn’t so easy back then.) I think we were both surprised. Her…

field notes

Feedback As a new subscriber, I want to commend MJ for the good stories in the January/February 2020 issue. Many other men’s magazines seem to have lost their way. I hope MJ will continue to defy this trend by providing real guidance and inspiration to men. GARY C. KUNCLEXETER, CA BREAKING POINT The Jan/Feb cover declares Aaron Paul is “finally breaking big.” Finally suggests difficulty or delay—which doesn’t fit Paul’s career: His success isn’t newfound. Fortunately, Amy Spencer set the record straight in her delightful story. ANDY ZIONBRADENTON, FL GROWING PAINS “Flower Power,” by Adam Bluestein, left a sour taste in my mouth. I read MJ for ways to stay healthy and be adventurous, and a weed story seems out of place, given the drug’s potential health effects.

shock wave

A WAVE CAN BE both a dream and a nightmare. In January 2019, at Pipeline, on Oahu’s North Shore, 42-year-old surfer Kohl Christensen caught an ideal swell (seen here)—the sort of wave that “sums up why we surf,” as the legendary Kelly Slater later put it. A surfer can spend years in the water and never get a ride like that, recalls Christensen, who lives down the road from the break. “Then, all of a sudden, it’s almost like the wave comes to you.” The thing is, a wave can turn deadly just as quickly. In December, less than a year after this photo was taken, Christensen was out at Pipeline again. He pulled into a tube but wiped out, flying headfirst into the water and cracking his head on…

true grit

RICK THORNTON IS fuming. Over the past 18 hours, the veteran dirt bike rider has covered more than 500 miles of hard terrain, carving his way through a relentless gauntlet of sandy washes, ruts, and steep mountain passes that combine to make the Baja 1000 arguably the toughest off-road motorsport race in the world. Whereas most other pro motorcycle racers are competing on teams of four, Thornton, 52, is trying to “Ironman it”—complete the race solo. Having ridden more or less nonstop since the race’s predawn start, he just battled two rivals over a nasty section of bumps to give himself a cushion coming into the most important pit stop on the course. And he can’t find his crew. “I’m pissed off, my mind is playing tricks on me, and I…

the bourbon excursion

THE LOUISVILLE-Lexington rivalry is fierce, both on the basketball court and off. Just 70 miles apart, Kentucky’s two largest cities differ as much as the landscapes that define them. Lexington, the smaller and slower-paced of the two, sits among the gently sloping hills of horse country, while Louisville—bigger, grittier, and altogether more urban—is perched on the banks of the powerful Ohio River. The great unifier is bourbon. Both cities boast vibrant dining scenes, buoyed by local booze. Taken together, the cities showcase the best of the Bluegrass State. Here’s how to pull off a top-shelf Kentucky weekend. DAY 1 A DAY AT THE RACES Some of the nation’s most idyllic countryside surrounds downtown Lexington, but the city itself is a gem. For easy walking access to top in-town attractions, including the historic Gratz…
