Frostline Kits started an American revolution. Suddenly it became possible for YOU to sew your own high quality down jackets, sleeping bags, tents, dog packs and tons of other stuff.

My FIVE Blurb books combine many of my passions. The lure of beautiful, innovative outdoor gear drove me into the history of the industry and its colorful founders. The fun was in the researching, writing, photographing, and tracking down mysteries. This is the kind of work I enjoy the most. www.Historyofgear.com Please visit my www.Oregonphotos.com website, where you can simply click the "About Us" button to access a complete 2 page Biography of me!
