Summer season of bike polo at PTec begins.

There are more bikes in the Bordentown office today than there are lights. With the return of reigning PTec Bike King, Justin Kline, to the office this week, a bike polo announcement was sent out yesterday across the PTec nation. And by PTec nation… I mean the sales and marketing team.

Bike polo has become a unique [...]

RAAM it, RAAM it real good.

A few words from Brad, the team captain of Team JLT ,on their Race Across America experience. We are proud to have been a part of their team and their efforts to support some great charities:
.
Now that the race is over, there is time to reflect on it all.  Given that the vast majority of riders and crew [...]

Seeing the Light in the Keys.

Post-graduation and pre-PTec, I had about 3 weeks off to move back up north, unpack, play copious amounts of video games and catch up with old friends from high school. However, when your parents live in Key Largo and are nice enough to take all of your dive equipment down there for you, you postpone [...]

A Lesson in Learning. Sidemount diver.

Memorial Day weekend is typically the official start of summer.  Beaches start charging, everyone drinks too much and is hung-over for the traditional BBQ at “so and so’s” house, and for me, divers finally get their act together and decide it’s warm enough to go diving.  So I ventured up to Dutch springs, again, to [...]

Shot of the day

This shot was sent in from Gustavo of Grupo Espeleologico Anthros in Costa Rica. He is crossing the 2nd of seven lakes in an Expedition to the longest cave in Central America: Chiquibul System in Belize, which has 97kms of cave passages.
He is using the Princeton Tec Apex and Quad headlamps. He is a very smart [...]

A bright future, a hairy chin and a tattoo. That’s what I got.

One year ago, I was sitting in the same chair I’m sitting in now as Princeton Tec’s first intern. Besides changing the water jugs in the cooler and drinking lots of coffee, I was able to catch a glimpse of what goes on “behind the scenes” at PTec, a brand that I’ve used for camping [...]

Manhattan Island Marathon Swim 2010

The Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, a 28.5-mile circumnavigation of Manhattan, is the premier event of the summer swim season. Solo swimmers, relay swimmers, boaters, kayakers, and all sorts of volunteers help make this amazing event happen.
 
As always, another incredible race! I was assigned to a solo swimmer, Tobey-Anne Saracino. Right from the start we had [...]

Tour Divide, at the start

With some luck, I happened to be in Calgary last week and had the chance to get out to Banff to support the Tour Divide racers at the start. The line up included an impressive number of riders, supporters and Princeton Tec products (bonus). Here is a quick view of it all as shot from [...]

PTec Lights – Helping Others Climb High

As we all know, summiting Everest is no easy task, and once accomplished, puts you in good company with a few thousand other top climbers . But try scaling all 7 summits and the 2 poles ,and you are talking about an elite list of climbers – which now includes a Chinese woman. On May [...]

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.
