notebookssidespiral_cat_sThe hassle of soggy and illegible paperwork has plagued outdoor professionals for decades. JL Darling LLC’s founder Jerry Darling developed the early version of Rite in the Rain paper to address that problem for the Pacific Northwest logging industry in the 1920′s and our product has been evolving ever since.

Still manufactured in Tacoma, Washington, USA, Rite in the Rain paper is used around the globe in situations ranging from desert warfare to rainforest insect research.

Their motto is “Outdoor writing products for outdoor writing people” describes a company that is focused, and as a result, has created a product that works very well. There are many different styles available from their website Rite in the Rain All-Weather Writing Paper.

iPhone Parking helper

Monday, March 29th, 2010

AutoPark from Frolicware allows your iPhone to keep track of the time left on your parking meter and exactly where you parked your car. The app doesn’t even have to be running, as it uses push notifications to let you know when the time on your meter is almost expired. The GPS function pinpoints your car on a map, and AutoPark allows you to set location in the parking structure via colors, levels, letters and numbers.  You can even add notes or take a picture of where your car is.

Other services include finding nearby gas stations, banks, and public restrooms (with more services promised). One-Button Email allows you to let others know where you parked your car, incase you need someone else to find it.
