It is possible to mention loose leaf tea and hard core hiking in the same story.

  I got a new toy. After months of debating with myself and wondering just how great D’mitry might look through a better lens, I upgraded my camera. The same day I also bought some loose leaf peppermint tea because it’s a great joy in life, so I used the new camera to showcase my […]

An honest review of adventure-worthy cars by a non-car enthusiast and a tiny dinosaur.
