I have been a fan of Rivendell Mountain Works for quite some time. Like many of you, I have lusted over old catalog scans and scoured eBay for the notorious Bombshelter. Once Eric Hardee and Don Wittenberger started producing the Jensen pack again I jumped at the opportunity and purchased one ASAP. Ever since then I occasionally checked in with Eric for any updates. He let me know when the day packs were getting added to the product line and I nabbed a Mariposa. Today I received a more formal RMW email blast about a new website, more products (including a killer tote bag) and a list of items coming down the pike. I don't know about you but I will be emailing them again to help assess interest in the Bombshelter. Check it out.

As we venture further out and higher up stumbling upon unique toilets, privies, outhouses, etc. with outstanding views can be quite memorable. What's your favorite wilderness water closet? Here is a delightful photo album of high peak potties from around the world.

When Were You Young? is a short film by Trevor Ware about exploring our beautiful country on his 1974 Honda CB550K for 3 years. If this doesn't make you want to hit the road, I don't know what will. Trevor also has an (inactive) blog but it's still a nice read. Lastly, earlier this month Trevor was tragically hit on his motorcycle by a drunk driver and is now in a coma. Friends and family started a hospital fund if you feel so inclined.
