In case you haven’t heard of/seen Field Notes then you need to check their stuff out. These simple pocket-sized note books are the type of thing that make you think, “I wish I thought of that”… but even if you had, they probably wouldn’t have been nearly as well designed. The level of attention to detail you would expect coming out of Draplin Design Co. Someone slipped me one of these memo books and after spending 90% on a keyboard it is refreshing to write things down by hand every now and then. Anyway, this Road Trip Kit in particular is my want of the week since I spend a lot of time on the road. With this kit you can pick out 6 state-specific memo pads with information about each state on the back covers. This package also includes one Field Notes Steno Pad and six Woodgrain Pencils. Before you go on your next road trip pick up your own kit or any other Field Notes products at fieldnotesbrand.com

Rome Laura Austin 026

Last week I went on quite the whirlwind of a trip on a leg of the Rome Snowboards movie tour. No we weren’t hopping around from spot to spot on a jet… it was me and 6 dudes in a van from Southern California to Seattle. Check out the gallery and story on SNOWBOARDERmag.com

You can also download Rome’s full movie “The Shred Remains” on iTunes.
