Ok, here's the deal. This awesome hoodie was going to be made by 80sTees.com, who also makes other super hero hoodies, and then the said they weren't unless they had a guaranteed 150-200 pre orders.

A page has been set up by F.O.A.M (Friends of Aquaman) member Eric Stettmeier to do just this. Simply click the link and go over to It's a Cold Day in Atlantis to have your voice heard. Don't let this hoodie die before it's made!

A recent vantoon

Here is a recent drawing I have done of the classic van Nautilus. This is a multi-show winning van from back in the 70's that graced the cover of many magazines, and was recently restored by a vanner from PA. It has had several different paint schemes over the years, and the roof was chopped when the van had less than 40 miles on it! But I digress, and I intend to feature this one as a van of the week feature soon.

Here is a couple of pictures I snapped of Nautilus at the Nats last week.

The interior... with the drawing on display. :D

To paraphrase Samwise Gamgee ..."well, I'm back".

I just wanted to let you know posting will resume shortly after I rest up from a 2900 mile round trip. It's good to be home where it's cool, cuz damn it was hot there....

Talk to you soon.

Ok, God willing I am off to this years Nats in Altamont, Ill. I won't be back online until around the 24th of July. I'll be back with pictures, and tales of adventure of vanning across half the country. Hopefully after that I will have a little more time to post things. Take it easy all.

Waaaaay cooler looking than a Segway

I pinched this article from over at Dvice. This is so much better than those dorky looking Segways. God, I super mega loathe those things. This I'd ride however.

"Witness the UnoCycle, a single-wheel (technically single-axle), single-rider vehicle that appears to be based on gyroscopic tech similar to a Segway and, more importantly, has photographic evidence of its existence. Of guys riding it and everything. You can see them by following the gallery link below.

Still in development, the Uno's top speed is 15 mph, but the inventor, Ben Gulak, suspects it could go as high as 40. That's no Harley, but it's faster than a Segway, and remember this is a battery-powered machine that you never need to fill up. Gulak says he's getting lots of interest lately."
