The Brian Pollack Fund

The Brian Pollack Fund has been established in Brian’s memory. The mission of the Fund is to raise money for programs that promote Brian’s dual passions for documentary filmmaking and exploring the outdoors through kayaking, hiking, and camping. Contributions will be dispersed to two different charitable efforts. One is the Brian A. Pollack Documentary Film Scholarship at University of California-Berkeley Journalism School to assist a documentary film student with expenses. Documentary filmmaking was a true passion of Brian’s. He was a storyteller and sought to shed light on difficult issues. When Brian was a student at UC Berkeley, he was awarded this type of scholarship. Through this scholarship, we hope to pay it forward on Brian’s behalf. The second charity is Outdoor Outreach, a non-profit organization in San Diego that brings disadvantaged youth to outdoor experiences like hiking, camping, kayaking, and surfing. Through this program, children learn outdoor skills and develop confidence and friendships. Experiencing the outdoors was another passion of Brian’s as he hiked, camped and kayaked all over the U.S. and countries throughout Europe and South America. He was an adventurer and felt happiest when he was surrounded by natural beauty. Brian loved and was beloved by his nieces and nephews and his friends' children and he enjoyed sharing his love of the outdoors with them.

Borough Furnace: Handmade Iron Frying Skillets/Pans via Anthony Bourdain

These are the awesome iron skillets as shared via Anthony Bourdain. I want the 9" frying skillet. "The long handle of our 9" Frying Skillet dissipates heat, staying cool to the touch on the stovetop. Made from 100% recycled iron, each piece is hand cast and finished and comes to you pre-seasoned with organic flax seed oil (Kosher certified), or available unseasoned by special request." Borough Furnace is a metal casting workshop in Owego, NY. We make our products by hand in small batches, using a traditional casting process that has been updated for environmental responsibility.

Rowing Seat Pad ProW High

The ProW has an innovative shape that relieves glute and upper hamstring pain and thereby helps improve your erg workout. This is the HIGH version – designed for athletes over 85kg. This model is most used by men, and mostly men above 85 kg because it is is higher and harder than the low ProW seat pad. It differs from conventional rowing seats in more ways: It has a ‘saddle’/projection in the middle and the holes are elliptical to create optimal pressure distribution from your pelvis. Further, the ProW has an opening for your tailbone and a projection at the back which helps to improve your technique. The projection simply makes it easier to sit up at the finish and transition from stroke to recovery phase. Designed by Danish lightweight international rowers it is recommended mainly for use on top of a regular Concept2 rowing seat. But it can also be taped to a seat in the boat using double sided adhesive tape (supplied). Manufacturer recommends allowing 3-5 training sessions to adapt and learn to use the seat. It reshapes to suit your body shape by 10-20% over time with frequent use. The material is smooth when new and the top surface rubs off with use making the seat non-slip. There is tape on the back of the seat for you to glue to the C2 which will help fix the seat until the surface material is fully rubbed off.

Tomtom GPS Adventure Watch Error

If you are shown the above error message, there are a number of things you can try: Make sure that the watch is fully snapped into the dock. Make sure that no pins are bent in the dock. Connect the watch directly to the computer. Do not use a hub. Try another USB port, or check that other USB devices work in the port. If possible, try a different computer to determine where the problem is. If these steps don't help then try a factory reset.

Black Diamond Magnum 16 Pack

The pack I love to run with. If I lost the other one I need to re-order this one! The big brother to the Black Diamond Bbee pack, the Black Diamond Magnum is a lightweight daypack for peak bagging, light-and-fast hikes and quick jaunts into the backcountry. Side stretch pockets and front compression webbing supplement the interior storage, and the bike light slot and trekking pole loop or ice axe loop make it equally suited for the commute and the mountains.
