Worth noting…

The Princeton Tec facility and offices are kind of in the middle of nowhere. By this I mean that there is not much within walking distance (or even for taking a quick pedal to grab lunch)… the back of our property as we have shown here before has a small trail system that we walk, and [...]

Beneath the Sea

This upcoming weekend is Beneath the Sea. For those that don’t know – it is America’s largest consumer scuba and dive travel show, and yes, you guessed it – it is in New Jersey. If you dive, and you like stuff related to dive, there is not a better place to be (other than actually [...]

NJ – “a perfectly diversified little bubble”

On the home page of Urban Climber Mag, editor extraordinaire Joe Iurato writes a bit about New Jersey. As an NJ company in the outdoor industries, we often discuss the joys and sorrows of life in the Garden State. We talk about diversity, both in geography and ecology and also in our population and culture. [...]

Are you ready to Swerve…

We have been busy lately. Really busy.

P-Tec is about to launch a new product. Yes, it’s true, and we will be feeding you details over the next few weeks leading up to the official launch at the Sea Otter Classic.  Of course, we are always excited about new products around here. Product development, design and technology, [...]

Fuel Featured in Climbing Magazine Gear Guide

It’s not always true that bigger is better. In fact, sometimes bigger is worse. Like when you have to wear something on your head that shines light so you can see.

In the realm of headlamps, the smaller the better. Headlamps are all about function, durability, burntime and brightness. Who needs the extra weight on their head. If you’re [...]

Eric Larsen doing good, with light and ice

Eric Larsen sent in a few photos today of himself having fun with an Apex headlamp. If you dont know Eric Larsen you need to check out his Save the Poles project.

This year he is training and educating – next year, within 365 days, Eric plans to hit the 3 poles – unsupported to the North and South [...]

Finally… a night ride?

The weather looks decent enough to announce the ride a day in advance! It should be dry and fairly warm tomorrow night, so I hope see everyone at the usual spot. This will be our first ride since the time change , therefore, we will have a little day light at the start. This doesn’t mean that we [...]

Iditarod Trail… Jay P, Rocky

It looks like Jay P and Rocky have withdrawn in the last days. Not exactly sure what the word is, but it looks like crazy conditions and lots of pushing of the bikes. I think that there are 4 left on bikes and 2 walking… Alaska Pete is still in and moving forward.

This was a [...]

Flashlights as a subculture

There is a wonderful pocket of the universe where people really dig flashlights. As you can imagine, we spend a fair amount of time in that fold. To that point, here is some fine flashlight art (please don’t delve too deep):
 

The art is by Nick Dewar - he’s got some sick non-flashlight illustrations too… check it out.

All new 2008 Team Nike Adventure Racing Jersey

Just in, courtesy of our good buddy Mike Kloser:

As always, we are psyched to be a part of the team.

Hitting the road. That’s what this is all about.

 

Life at PT sure is interesting, but it’s what happens when we saddle up and head out of Bordentown that fuels our passion and provides inspiration. Our travels present the opportunity to explore new places, see old friends, meet strangers that grow into old friends, and share our enthusiasm for the outdoors. www.livingonthedash.com is our outlet to share these experiences.

 

Sit back, enjoy and spread the love.
