Antonov seems to have such interesting designs compared to the more traditional stuff we see from Boeing — for better or worse, I guess.

I just watched Race to Dakar last week and kept seeing the AN-72 and AN-74s in the background of the bivouacs. Funky looking! » 7/04/14 7:17pm 7/04/14 7:17pm

Back when I was a Boy Scout ('97-'02) the Navy would allow a few troops a year to spend a week at San Clemente Island staying in some old cabins and doing outdoor stuff out there. We had a few Navy officers as dads/adult leaders in our troop, and our scoutmaster at the time was high up at SPAWAR, so we were able to… » 7/04/14 7:06pm 7/04/14 7:06pm

Cool to see the coverage — this was the second GRC event I shot this year and I'm really liking the show they put on. I didn't know you were there or I would have sought you out! The location was neat, too — seeing part of the strip in the background is pretty cool. Here's one of my favorite shots of the event, of the… » 11/10/13 12:36pm 11/10/13 12:36pm

Jeans and a t-shirt...tennis shoes, no gloves...is that a baseball cap in lieu of a helmet?

Dude needs to take the insurance money and stick to cars, or start wearing proper gear. Oh, and a lotto ticket might be a good investment as well. Lucky sonofabitch. » 7/25/13 11:24am 7/25/13 11:24am

Yep, watching his other videos on his YouTube channel shows that he seems to think any somewhat desolate stretch of road is a public race track.

Not cool. As a BMW owner and motorcycle rider, I take offense to this as he's both perpetuating the stereotype of the douchebag BMW driver, and putting his "fun" above the… » 6/10/13 3:27pm 6/10/13 3:27pm

We have a similar bus situation here in San Diego, but they're buses from Tijuana taking people to places north of here (Los Angeles, etc). Generally you'll see them in the fast lane or the carpool lane, heavily listing to one side from blown out suspensions, spewing tons of black smoke, random pieces of sheetmetal… » 6/06/13 8:19pm 6/06/13 8:19pm

Make it mandatory for every young driver to ride a scooter, moped, or motorcycle for at least 6 months, if not a year, before they can drive a car. That should help drive home the point of how dangerous cars are, and how serious a privilege driving is. » 3/26/13 12:18pm 3/26/13 12:18pm

A Weekend of Dual Driving: Matt Bell, Grand-Am Rolex 24 at Daytona

I had the opportunity in late January to shadow Matt Bell during the Grand-Am Rolex 24 at Daytona. Bell, who has been racing Continental Challenge since 2008, is dual-driving this season, splitting his weekends between the #9 Stevenson Motorsports Camaro GS.R and the #51 APR Motorsports Audi R8 LMS/Grand-Am. » 2/26/13 4:58pm 2/26/13 4:58pm
