Beau Johnston Announced as New Toyota Cruisers and Trucks' Editor in Chief


ZAXYN Media, the publisher of Toyota Cruisers and Trucks (TCT) Magazine, announced on June 9 that our very own Beau Johnston would be taking over as Editor in Chief, saying:
"Beau’s LivingOverland.com blog is one of the most popular in the segment, and Beau has grown the TCT Overland Section far beyond its original charter."
Beau's first task as the new EiC will be to further streamline editorial production across all reading platforms.  Beau has been apart of the editorial team at TCT since its inception.  Krista Johnston will remain as the Managing Editor for the Outdoor Lifestyle section while the editorial responsibilities for the Overland section will be distributed among the entire editorial staff.

Review: Pelican 2760 LED Headlamp


My Thoughts:

Wait. Pelican makes headlamps? 

I too, said the same thing. I knew they made great dive lights, so it only makes sense to see Pelican making some lighting advancements for those who adventure and explore over land too. This particular light is powered by 3 AAA batteries, producing 204 lumens of pure retina searing awesomeness for approximately 2 hours. Built into the frame, the 4 position hinge allows you to put the light exactly where you want it. There are no dials to jam or break as the headlamp is easily controlled by a single button. When the button is clicked, all three LEDS turn on with the center projecting beam on the high output setting. Another click and the center beam is reduced to low. If that is still too bright, one more click will completely shut off the center beam, leaving the two side LEDS on. Clicking one more time will activate the flashing mode. Which I have to say is nice. Nice meaning it won't induce an epileptic seizure! Holding the button down will activate the red LED, preserving your night vision. Three quick clicks when the red LED is on will cause it to flash - a feature I am not sure is needed.
