I'm a little bit weary of any product that says it can waterproof my device - but this does look somewhat promising. Liquipel coats the inside and outside of your phone with a waterproof layer that is thinner than a human hair. For around $70 you send in your phone, they work their magic, and send it back to you. Currently they're offering it for a variety of Apple, HTC, Samsung and Motorola devices.
ExPo: Adventure and Overland Travel Enthusiasts
BringATrailer.com [link] had something that caught my eye this week. They found a 1959 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ25 - the grandfather model of Land Cruisers in the United States. It's currently running, and quite the rare vehicle. Toyota sold only 400 of these in 1959 - so at $4500 it's quite the steal. Can you guess how many FJ25's Toyota sold the year before? ONE! [source] This may be the earliest model year Land Cruiser you can realistically purchase in the United States!
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
