Subaru All Wheel Drive: What’s the big deal?

Prana Makes the Best Shorts for Climbing

I’ve always been someone who doesn’t like to spend money on clothes. I don’t really care that much about the latest trends and I always thought “why would I spend $30 on a t-shirt when I can get a pack of them for $6 from Walmart”. Well recently, I was mountain biking with a good friend of mine and he was raving about these pants he gets from a company called Prana.

Low Budget Camper Conversion Using a Chevy Tahoe

My partner and I do a lot of camping and we tend to go to some pretty remote areas. I’ve always liked the idea of something like a Class-C camper or a conversion van but most camper vans just don’t have the clearance or the off-road capabilities that I felt we would need when we are way off the beaten path. Then one night, I was scrolling through the KSL Cars app (if you know Utah, then you know KSL) and I had the idea to build a dedicated camping vehicle with 4×4.
