Relatively soon, I will be headed to Black Rock City out in Nevada to attend the 2013 Burning Man, Cargo Cult.

If you’re driving from the east to get to Burning Man, I highly recommend taking Jungo Road (State Route 49). I was able to shave 4 hours of my driving time, with the way I drove getting there.

In the 1970’s, off-road enthusiast around Hot Spring Arkansas began exploring the the logging roads in the area, forming an impressive network of trails.

Naches Pass was originally a Native American foot trail connecting the various Salish people on the west side (Nisqually & Puyallup) to the Yakima people on the east side of the Cascade Range.

The trail never found practical use because the steep terrain is nearly impractical for wagons and it would required over 60 crossing of the Naches River before reaching the pass from the east. One of the earliest written accounts of the Naches Pass is from Theodore Continue Reading

The Spartan Chin is a skydiving camera mount for use with the G3 Cookie Helmet and a GoPro Session or a GoPro Session 5. Instead of mounting the camera on top of the helmet which most skydivers traditionally choose, I decided to change directions and mount the camera as close as possible on the chin for some key benefits for myself. Before exiting the plane when I'm fun-jumping, I can read the screen on my GoPro and see that it is recording without taking my helmet off or bothering someone else to check the recording status. The extra headroom is quite helpful for the muscles in my neck and also helps reduce the number of scratches to the GoPro's lens. When I happen to jump on a Pro-Rated Skydive, or perhaps land off, I have handy a packing tool with me.
