Anderson Power Poles, for All The Things!

Anderson Power Poles, for All The Things!

Anderson Power poles have saved my butt on more than one occasion. I recommend them for powering just about everything.

I just got out to the middle of no where for a mini work-cation and decided to write this quick post. Its a clear warm night and my cell is hanging on to the network by one bar. When I got here I realized my battery powering the ARB fridge was running low, the fridge was warming up… and so was the beer (There are grapes and other stuff too, but that’s besides the point). I was in a state of near catastrophe until I remembered that I had installed Anderson Power Poles on the power wires of the fridge. I also have them on the power cable feeding power to the 2m ham radio so I simply plugged the fridge into the radio power cable. Problem solved. I’ll have frigid snacks and beverages in no time. 

You may be thinking, “can’t you just standardize all your 12v accessories with any 12v plug?”. Or, “What’s so great about these Anderson doohickeys?”. The truth is yes, you can run what ever you like for a 12V  plug but I doubt you’ll find anything better than this.  I install Anderson Power Poles on just about everything I own. I got started on them because they are a common plug for emergency communications equipment, so I started using them on my ham radio equipment. The idea is if all ham radios are set up with the same plugs, then in an emergency situation radios can be easily swapped put in the event of a failure. But beyond that these little plugs are easy to install and the smallest form factor can handle up to 45 Amps at 12v DC. They are also genderless.. yep every plug is the same, but they are made in a way that you can’t plug them in backwards either. It simply doesn’t get easier than this. Genderless 12v extension cords, and no missing unpaired male/female plug issues. 

Simply awesome.

The 2016/17 Mammoth Mountain Winter Season Is Here!

california-cali4nia-ski-passWinter is coming in strong this year and I’m really looking forward to going snowboarding in mammoth. If you’re looking to buy a season pass, Now is a great time to do so and can be done at by clicking the yellow “Buy My Pass” button on the mammoth website here: Mammoth Season Passes.
Mammoth just launch a referral program today where both you and I get $100 if you buy a pass through the following URL: http://mbsy.co/f8m9r. Once you get your season pass then you get another $100 for each of your friends that get a pass. Sounds pretty awesome right? This program is only going to be running for about the next 8 weeks. This is a good amount of time to get your pass, but the longer you take, the less time your’e giving your friends to get in on this deal with us. Also, don’t forget, the Mammoth pass also gets you access to June Mountain, Bear Mountain and Snow Summit! Having access to these other mountains is awesome being that 2 of them are right here is our southern California backyard.

Small Websites and Hosting

Most people these days know me as somewhat of a gearhead and as a nissan truck guru but those who have known me the longest know that I’m a computer nerd at heart.
Over time I have accumulated both the resources and knowledge to build and host websites. If you need a website built to have a personal blog or for a small business, feel free to shoot me an E-mail or even just give me a ring. I’ll take on larger projects on a case by case basis depending on how time consuming my primary job is at the time. Please pass the word along!
