Tercel 4WD

Joining the ranks of the other hideously good wagons of the world is the Toyota Tercel 4wd. We had a shiny gold number when I was growing up and it proved to be one of the best vehicles we ever added to the arsenal. Thankfully there are a handful of loyal supporters out there that [...]

Fishing Report: Green River

Great weather the second day (50 degrees with 40mph wind the first, we’ll forget about that) and overall decent fishing, especially if you’re into whitefish.

We’ll be headed up to Gray Reef in a couple weeks (if the insane water levels subside) and might just have to stop by the world headquarters of Cliff Outdoors. Hands down the best fly boxes on the market born and bred in Casper, WY.

Mountain Classic: Lava Dome

Most likely I’m one of only a handful of folks that still carries the Lava Dome torch. Could be because the first pair of techy hikers I had were the original Nike boots (3/4 top, blue nylon and suede, circa early 80′s, anyone know these?) I’m now down to my last remaining pair of rainbow [...]
