1024px-The_North_Face_logo.svgThe North Face has been a respected brand in the adventure world for many years now. Started by Douglas Tompkins and Kenneth Klopp in San Francisco around 1968, the brand has become infamous with providing some of the best gear for the adventure seeker throughout the world. Providing everything from clothing to equipment (tents, backpacks, luggage and sleeping bags), this gear can be seen in almost all factions of the adventure world, and for good reason, it’s that good.

Recently, they released a new commercial (shown below). They commissioned a band called My Morning Jacket to record a version of Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land. It can be downloaded from the iTunes Music Store. Needless to say, this song really does embody the spirit of the adventurer, and the commercial itself, a fantastic view of people doing what they love best, exploring and adventuring.

Thanks to Outside Online for the heads up on this. I’ve made use of some of the information from this article as well as some information from Wikipedia.

I’ve been driving my little Suzuki Jimny for a while now, and I’ve decided that it’s the best little car in the world. It’s not the fastest in the world, but will climb pretty much everything, including the kitchen sink.. Some awesome videos the wet your tastebuds…


This next video is one that my Brother-In-Law and I helped out with. We took Suzuki McCarthy’s marketing team around a 4×4 trail in the Magaliesburg called De Wildt. It’s a great trail with alot of fun obstacles. We often use it when we do 4×4 training as it has a pretty easy training ground called the Concrete Jungle that is uniquely designed to give you an idea of what it’s like. Once done with the training then we usually head out onto the trail of a little bit of 4x4xFun.
