I never knew there was actually a name for that half-torn-up zip lock baggie filled with random stuff that always seemed to make my camping trips. That little baggie held all my loose ends whenever I went out on the trail for some various camping, canoeing, biking, or moto trip. But there is a name... Continue Reading →

Got Gas! 2.0
I finished up my little DIY project to be able to cary some extra petrol. I don't think it turned out so bad. It was all made by scrounging up the parts from odds and ends laying around my garage. The next thing I need to do is get it mounted on my bike, which... Continue Reading →

Organization can be key!
I needed a little extra organization in my saddle bags. Looking over the intraweb I ran across somebody who added a shelve into their panniers. It got my brain a humming and away I went. With nothing but scrap parts in my garage I was able to put together this little shelf. Now I can... Continue Reading →
