FJ Summit X

So I wanted to provide an AAR (After Action Report on FJ Summit) because I know a lot of people would have loved to go, and between this and TaCo Rock Therapy I think the best Toyota events happen within 3 hours of each other in Moab and Ouray.

I’ll preface this by saying I was incredibly on the fence about going. I tried to register originally for the event, but got on the wait list within 30 seconds. Registration is brutal and I didn’t find out about being on the wait list until mid-april. I signed up thinking worst case I could sell my ticket.

The dull ringing of the air raid siren woke me, I reached for the sound but only found my pistol on the nightstand. My groggy eyes blurred the dim rectangle screen of my iPhone. I pressed the vague outline of “snooze” and sighed deeply.

Communication is the primary force behind all movements of our modern life. Whether it’s to call your grandmother and wish her a happy birthday, or to confirm coordinates for a bombing run, communication is at the forefront of every development of our history.

EDC PART 3: THE GOLD STANDARD OF AMERICAN BADASSERY

Simplicity is always a good standard to stay behind. the simpler things are, the easier they are to fix and stay onto of, because everything requires maintenance of some sort. so if its easy to fix, and stay on top of it should in turn be reliable as well, right?

EDC PART TWO: IT PUT THE LOTION ON THE SKIN

Leather is unique. It’s kind of hard to describe how cool it is, especially when its well made. Look at Steve McQueen, he wore a leather jacket all the time and he was just a badass. Hell, you could have a total piece of shit in your possession and it would still be cool, because its leather. That said though, the coolest pieces of leather are hand made, whether it be with overgrown sewing machines or through the physical labors of our digits: someone still made it, someone cared.

I carry an assortment of things in my person on any given day. I have an interesting set of requirements that constantly changes as I am part of the US Armed Forces, a father, registered Badass and I work for the Rail Road. With this part though, I’ll feature two items I use frequently; The Classic Luminox dive watch, and the Pocket Tool X Brewzer.

JUICING LIKE HULK HOGAN

Recently I acquired a tool that tames the struggle between phone use and battery life. The Mophie juice pack air phone case packs in an extra battery at no expense to weight, size or even looks.

INSIDE JOB

The air we breath is composed of four major gases: 78.09% Nitrogen, 20.95% Oxygen, 0.93% Argon, and 0.039% Carbon Dioxide. The last few percentage points are divvied up amongst other gases that float around. That 21% of Oxygen in the air is the catalyst for so many things. It brings life to us as breath, and is half of a molecule of water, which brings life to every corner of the planet and shapes the very surface us outdoor lovers trek over.

FOURTH FLOOR: TOOLS, GUNS, KEYS TO SUPER WEAPONS

I can not count the number of times I saw an old Popular Mechanics article or a print from the 20’s and 30’s about the future and how we’d have flying cars living in high rise Utopia Metropolis. Even in Back to The Future II, Robert Zimeckis from 1985 portrayed 2015 as with flying Jeeps and instant Pepsi’s. It isn’t hard to think that way – that such things were thought feasible and attainable purely due the the incredible rate of technological advancement from post Manhattan Project World War II and onward.
