Adventure, creativity, and innovation are born from a person's needs and desires. Domino Ireland grew up in a little trailer in a small town in the middle of the United States. It's a place where kids hearing "go play in the street" was real and something they actually did. That street was a dirt road. He and his friends had to get creative everyday. Imagination was essential, innovation a mindset. The desire to explore and see the world was always a true passion and a path to being a better person. After 30+ years of epic adventures, learning from other like-minded adventurists and making friends all over the world, Domino seeks out ways in which to explore new ideas and inspire new directions in others while staying true to the word, adventure.
Domino is part adventurer, part creative, part eclectic and definitely original ~ an adventurist.
He's a entrepreneur, facilitator, competitive cook, motivator, event producer, and a wedding officiate. He has worked and played alongside all kinds of people in all walks of life: athletes | CEO's | celebrities | creatives | military | tribes | other adventurists. . . you name it!
He brings true uniqueness to life's table by collaborating with do'r types with his unparalleled experiences gained from exploring our world on what most deem bucket-list adventures but he calls while-I'm-here "epic" experiences.
Domino has one of the most broad variety of life experiences imaginable. Starting with epic excursions, he has thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail and the Camino de Santiago. For his 20 year high school reunion he bicycled across the USA on Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. He has hiked to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. For one crazy adventure he drove a very small car ~|~ a Suzuki Alto~|~ 10,000 miles from the England to Mongolia in an infamous adventure deemed The Mongol Rally.
Domino is a multi-state Chili Champion as well as champion cook in other specialties. He has twice won the Pillsbury Pie championship in NC, has anyone else done such a thing?
he is passionate about treasure hunts. He published the book COWBOY, a real life treasure hunt for $1000 cash he buried somewhere in the United States. For a treasure hunt in 2017, he hid a 1 oz. gold coin then provided a scroll with clues for a clever seeker to find and keep it. In 2018, sparkconquest. And, if you keep track, you never know when he'll release another valuable treasure hunt.
He has run 20 full marathons including The Great Wall Marathon in China and well over 30 half marathons. In addition, he has completed over 30 triathlons including finishing an Ironman and two half-ironman distance races along the way.
Domino is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps where he served as a team leader for an 0331 machine gun unit in the Fleet Marine Force.
He's been to just about all of the States in the United States and he's been to at least 24 countries.
He loves chatting over a beer (or three) about all of life’s possibilities, unique ideas and epic trips.

Adventures with Domino
My Adventure Communique'
Arrived to the Maasai, Lyzza Clan of 300 to 400. Here I am greated by the Chief and a few of his sons. He has 8 wives. He is a famous Medicine Man.
The tall one is my host, Saitoti, who will become chief when his father passes. Yep, he’s killed a lion but, it was with a spear and because the lion was killing his cattle.
Between this photo and drinking Ballentines with an elder much later, you will not believe what happens. You’ll have to hear that story (and see the footage if you can stomach it) in person someday.
A night in the boma then a morning watching the women milk the cows then we were on our way.
Soon to leave Tanzania behind. A quick shower and breakfast at the Rift Valley Lodge then the long trip to the airport. I seem to recall First Friday is on this weekend back home.
Mt. Kilimanjaro Time
Leaving the animals behind…most of them anyway, it is time for Kilimanjaro.
A bit anxious I’d say. Just heard from a summit'r it was -22 up top this AM.
I had a great week with my new TZ friends. I’ll see Josh in 9 days. Hopefully, to celebrate and then prepare for my overnight with a Maasai family out in the broad savannah somewhere.
Not gonna be updates until I’m off the Mtn. so I’ll load what I can today.

Just dinner in the Serengeti
Dinner: Eating cream of lentil soup and oh yes, 25 yards from me…in the pitch dark…is the very dangerous buffalo (more so than their USA cousins, these guys kill lions). - You can’t see or read the “pause” that just happened, as is MOVED in the night- I dont know if the soldier with the AK 47 makes me feel any more safe since, when I hear the buffalo, I dont see him around.
With the first week half over, we prepare for Ngorongoro Crater.
I had a Serengeti massage in the open air with only a small wooden barrier between us and the nature that’s surrounding. Getting my legs ready for the big Kili trek the starts in few days after standing on game drives for hours and getting beat around. Hard to relax though when you worry about tsetse flies and mosquitoes in the middle of the day.
I also got Joshua a massage, he said it was a first. Tommy, he’s a bit shy.
50+ lions and giraffes, 100’s of Elephants, warthogs, baboons and buffalo, 3 cheetahs, 2 leopards, 20+ hyenas and hippopotamususus, 1000’s of zebra, gazelles and various other small creatures, 1 jackel and other things that are wild.
I’m ready to bring family and friends here just for the game drives (upscale of course), you dont have to hike Kilimanjaro or go as rough as I do. More on that once I experience the Mountain.
Spent last night coming up with a “Poa Poa” (look it up) jingle with Joshua and Tommy for Pamoja (means TOGETHER) Safaris, while listening African rhythms.
A different gal.
