About a month ago, my comfortable, spacious workplace was invaded by a big, bearded, jolly dude named Kevin. We brought Kevin on board as a customer service and sales representative, and he seems to be fitting in quite well. Like any recently-moved-in-together-couple, we have our moments, but all-in-all, it’s been good.
So last week, Kevin came [...]
Are you like me? Do you love chicks that get outside, get dirt under their fingernails, sweat, and have an unparalleled sense for adventure and sport? Are you possibly one of these chicks?!
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then you probably also think that Chicks Climbing is a freakin’ awesome organization. Promoting [...]
So before posting my rant on Shark Fin Soup yesterday, I sent an email to Kalen, our dive sales rep and inhouse Scuba instructor. Here is the email–

We’re not afraid of being cocky. Since the introduction of the Matrix headlamp in the year 2000, we’ve constantly been innovators and industry leaders in headlamp evolution.

Just last week, Jay P added another feather in his cap of awesomeness, as he completed the [...]
We’ve said it a million times; the best part about working for Princeton Tec is the ability to work in the same markets we love to play in. Growing up in rural New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the guys and girls at PTec spent most of their young lives playing outside, and never stopped. So naturally, [...]
I’ve admitted it several times before. I am a dive snob. Don’t blame me, blame my parents. Or blame the fact that the only diving you can do in Pennsylvania is in abandoned quarries that never get warmer than 65º, whatever.
Yesterday morning there was a solid half inch of ice covering my entire car. Frozen [...]
For the past 12 months, Eric Larsen has been training, preparing, exploring, and pushing himself to the limits. All why freezing his ass off. But according to Eric, now that he’s back from his journey to both poles and the summit of Everest (all in less than twelve months, by the way), the real work [...]
It’s been a pretty incredible journey for Victor Mooney, and it is still just beginning. In honor of fallen family members and friends, Victor will be attempting to row from Africa to New York City in an effort to complete the Goree Challenge and raise money for AIDS prevention and research. Despite two previously failed [...]
