    Portable wind power!

    http://windpax.com/products/the-breeze/ Just went ahead and pre-ordered 2 of these puppies. I was thinking of doing a more solar based power setup until I found this web site.

    Pelican cases: Chuck your old laptop bag in the trash!

    So Like some people, I usually bring my laptop with me on any trip I go on. If I need to dump files from my camera, it sure comes in handy. Coupled with a battery pack and my solar panels, it makes for a fun night time editing session when the rest of the camp has gone to bed. If you are like...

    Upgrades Upgrades!!

    Ready to put a wide ratio five speed, new crank and new 13.5:1 390 big bore. Well the 390 isn't that new, just a refresh. With a remap of the FI I should be up around 50 - 54 HP I think, but I'm really looking for more torque not HP, not sure I'm even going to like it but it'll be fun to build...

    What's your number one most useful cooking item?

    I'm interested to hear about people's number one item that they find themselves using in their camp kitchens. I received a Kelly Kettle a few years back for Christmas. It came with all the attachments for use as a stove, kettle, and a device to heat soup and such. The thing about it is that it...

    Simple power upgrades for a Nissan?

    So I just picked up an 07 Xterra. I'm looking to up the power by at least 100hp, but I'm looking for simple upgrades that can help me get closer to the target range of 360-400hp. I'm leery about a turbo or supercharger due to the high cost and tuning they demand. So I'm looking for several...

    Bragging time: Suzuki V-Strom 650

    This has done a great job of being versatile at being an adventure bike. I love getting 60 miles to the gallon on the freeway (changed gearing), riding up to 13000 ft (up around Mt Baker), and dropping the tire pressure to 10 PSI and jumping on dirt roads which can take you anywhere. This bike...

    Supercross - Villipoto

    Well, you most likely have heard that Villopoto will not be going for his fifth consecutive win, and instead will be moving to Europe. Personally I think this was a silly move on his part, but what are your thoughts?

    Backpacking in the UK

    So, usually I like to go backpacking the forest, where there are no people, with no one around to stress you out. Basically, to be one with nature and to take yourself away from the daily tasks that you have to perform. But I have decided to go outside of my comfort zone and this next summer...
