More Dreamin'

My dreams for hitting the open road and exploring the lost and forgotten haven changed yet I've been thinking alot about RVing and having a mobile lifestyle.

I've recently stumbles upon several blogs of full-time airstreamers and I just find their lives fascinating and amazing. Not sure if my wife feels the same... :)

I'll probably expand upon this in greater detail soon.

Just wanted to say hi to the 2 wheelin' blogosphere

Our Labor Day Weekend Adventure

Katie and I just finished a fantastic weekend with Ryan and Becca Robins. We relaxed over the labor day weekend in a small little community, Pine Mountain Club, CA. They had a beautiful golf course surrounded by little cabins and houses.
We had a great time and look forward to a return visit maybe sometime in early Spring. I would love to see this place with snow all around.

Here are some photos from the weekend:

Here is a video I did of Becca and Ryan's beautiful baby boy:

Log Haven Timlapse

Visual Media is my passion and its the industry I have chosen to pursue. One of my favorite subjects is the outdoors and especially the night sky.
Here is a short timelapse video I shot over Labor Day weekend.

The Leather Jacket: An Essential

I know... Im kinda going overboard thinking and wishing about exploring the backroads on two wheels...
I can research scooters and motorcycles all day long but the accessories are almost just as fun and I have loved researching a jacket. The jacket is the key apparel to a motorist and says so much about you and what you drive.
I first loved the simple synthetic jackets that I saw around the net but fell in love with the leather jackets. I don't know what is but I love good leather products. I feel like they can hold history and just have a timeless look.
Saddleback Leather Company Briefcase
There is a company in Texas called The Saddleback Leather company and they make some incredible products. Katie, my wife, gave me a wallet from Saddleback last year and I have loved it! I have been wanting one of their briefcases for several years now. They are quite expensive but they just scream quality and a lifetime beyond my own.

I love Milwaukee Leather Apparel's Crazy Horse Jacket. Its just a classic looking motorcycle jacket with great lines and simple. Everything looks very high in quality but the only thing that concerns me is the lack of any sort of armor, and since I am very new the whole motorcycle/scootering game I think I want as much armor as I can get.

This brings me to Icon's Motorhead jacket. A great looking jacket, especially the all black version. I love the lines... not a big fan of the big ICON logo in the middle of the chest but I think the all black downplays this some. It reminds me of a crotch-rocket jacket but also seems like a classic cruiser jacket. It also has tons of armor in the elbows, shoulders and back. Has a removable liner and removable armor, which I love because I would want to wear this all the time if I could.

What do you think? Is there a jacket that I haven't seen that I definitely should consider? Are there any small companies out there similar to Saddleback Leather producing a great product?
