The Porsche 911 Dakar

Read More

Porsche is so good at shit like this… The market for a “safari” 911 is not huge, but the impact of one existing? Brilliant.

Zendure SuperBase V

At its simplest, this is a set of modular batteries used to store energy for when you don’t have any. For instance, if you have one charged and ready to go when a storm runs through and kills your power, you will have enough juice to run your lights. If you have two charged, you might have enough to run all of your appliances as well. And so on…

Pretty interesting idea for people that have frequent, but temporary power outages.

Bamford’s Watches & Cars

George Bamford, for all intents and purposes, is a timepiece customizer. He takes expensive watches, customizes them to his own taste, and then sells them as his own line. He’s also a car guy… His collections of both are pretty interesting…

Giaco is the guy behind the MakerKnife – a gorgeously designed, but inconsistently manufactured utility knife. And now, he’s come out with his own flashlight. Honestly, I don’t see a lot of ground being broken here.

The Vixen Motorhome

Read More

I never knew these existed… Essentially, Bill Collins (formerly of DeLorean) designed a Motorhome called the Vixen 21 and it was available from 1986 until 1989 or so. Initially, the motorhome featured a pop top and an incredibly efficient BMW M21 turbo-diesel capable of more than 30mpg. As sales lagged and financial troubles burdened, however, Vixen started shorting the motorhome by getting rid of the pop-top and exchanging the diesel for a 3800 Buick V6.

Apparently, people still love these things… Just over 300 were ever produced.

Evergoods is back at it… This time, they are introducing a really streamlined 20L pack. If it’s made anything like their previous offerings, expect high end at a decent price.

Details will be here eventually.

GORUCK Camera Bag

So, I’ve been asked about this bag more than any other I own. Essentially, it’s a GORUCK Kaidan Bullet in 15L that I’ve outfitted to become my main camera bag. Here’s a short list of the details:

Anyway, this is by far and away the best Camera Backpack I’ve ever used. I still use slings when I need to be more mobile, but if I’m on location this is the bag I take. To me, it’s all about flexibility and no one does big open spaces (ripe for self organization) like GORUCK. Highly recommended.
