Made in America - Brunton Pocket Transit


I recently traveled to Brunton's manufacturing facility in Riverton, WY to document how their legendary Pocket Transits are manufactured.  Brunton is just one of a growing number of companies bringing manufacturing back to the US.  Look for the article to come out in the July 2015 issue of Toyota Cruisers and Trucks.

Review: Light Locks

It was late, and I had already gone to bed, when Krista heard a truck pull up in front of our house.  Krista didn't think twice about the sound, thinking it was one of the neighbor kids coming home after hours.  It wasn't until I walked out to the 4Runner the next morning that I noticed.  I did not notice immediately, though, it was one of those double-take moments.  I walked past the front of the 4Runner stopped, took a few steps back, looked down, and realized the front bumper was void of the LED light bar.


It was at this point that I was glad the neighbors, and their children, were not outside.  A string of expletives, that would have made a sailor blush, followed my discovery.  The thief was able to steal unbolt the light bar from the mounts and reached into the open grill to cut the power cord.  I guess I was more surprised that it was stolen, and I am sure the thief was surprised to arrive at home only to discover he stole a cheap Chinese-made bar.  I didn't expect this to happen, especially in the nice neighborhood we chose to live in.
