Odds & a Pile of Ends

I am a big fan of planning. Type A, OCD, whatever you want to call me... it's boring but it's part of my life. Having built several trucks now from scratch I am beginning to admit that the process of building is one of my favourite parts of this hobby. Even going back as a child, I was obsessed with Lego and creating my own "sets" from scratch. I was good at it building Lego... if there was such a thing? It makes me realize there is more to building trucks than the monetary evacuation and simply pursueing the perceived cool factor. I truly enjoy the project management aspect of it: having a vision, researching, purchasing/coordinating parts, assembly, usage, evaluation, and the final tweaking stages that follow....

RickRunner's Introduction

At Tamarack Media Co we love creating lasting memories through stills or moving images. Our personal favorites are those opportunities that lead us into the backcountry where we can capture some of the most remote and beautiful terrain imaginable with our cameras. It just so happens that we need capable and reliable vehicles to get us to these places. And we (Chase and I) are both Toyota loyalists to the core. Following this mantra, recently led me on the quest for my next adventure project. Having some experience with many of Toyota's flagship 4x4's I knew exactly what vehicle I was after to fullfill my needs. I needed something comfortable for long distance highway cruising, "homey" enough for 2-5 day remote backcountry camping excursions, and capable enough to eventually hit the coveted Rubicon trail. Or as my wife would say "something that actually has back seats that you could one day put little humans in". The hunt was on for an 05-09 GX470 or 05-09 Toyota 4Runner V8....

An Unexpected Start to 2017 - a Tribute to Downtown Dan.

An Unexpected Start to 2017 - a Tribute to Downtown Dan.

I spent the 2016 holidays as I normally do - relaxing at my parents dream home, nestled along the shores of beautiful Kootenay Lake. Really though, who wouldn't? Being such close proximity to the mountain-town of Nelson BC makes it an easy choice each year when the Christmas season rolls around. This year was similar in a lot of ways with most of our time spent up at Whitewater - the local ski hill, on the local hiking trails, on the couch getting some R&R, or around the dinner table laughing and conversing with our family. New Years Eve came quick and optimism of the "fresh start" for 2017 rejuvenated our spirits....

#colossal2016 Part 4

The walkers departed in a group to work through the challenge of turning all the rigs around that they had left parked below, while the rest of us planned the best course of action for our descent. We busted out the shovels and broke notches into the snow that revealed the dirt surface below. This would allow some braking traction as we started the steepest initial part of the descent, in an effort to maintain control and not lock up the brakes. A mix of anticipation and nervousness filled the air. The consequences were quite dire if the vehicle were to lose control and slide down the track – trees on driver’s left, and mountain’s edge to the right...
