Out of Alaska Groove Rings Launches on Kickstarter

We really enjoy this whole Crowd Funding thing going on these days, especially when they are close to home or involve things we love to do.  I will admit, Groove Ring was a real head scratcher when Peter Goodwin from The General Lodge reached out to me with a sneak peek at the product.  I gave it the courteous once over and continued scratching my head.

I don’t wear rings.  I lose them.  One is at the bottom of the Gallatin, luckily without my finger2386d542d02f339058f6c9953fe4e33b_original attached after a near death boating accident.  Yes, you can drown on the Gallatin, I almost proved it.  The next ring flew off my hand in a Fly Shop and was never seen again.

Now Groove Ring comes into the picture.  I read and re-read and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense.   Technology that attaches to your finger has been born….Read on about Groove Ring.








You can support Groove Ring right now through their Kickstarter Campaign.  Finally, give the video short below a watch, hilariously great and paints the picture why Groove Ring is going to be around for a long time.






Friday is the Deadline to have your say and Help Save Bristol Bay





Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to one of the last great salmon fisheries on the planet. The salmon, wildlife, people and fishing jobs of this beautiful and productive region are threatened by the proposed Pebble gold and copper mine. If built, Pebble could become the largest mine in North America.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to stop this mine and protect Bristol Bay’s fish and jobs through the Clean Water Act.

Take action now by sending a comment to the EPA on their Proposed Determination for 404(c) action that would stop Pebble mine. Ask EPA to complete the Clean Water Act 404(c) process and protect Bristol Bay

A big “Thank You” to Pat for letting us use his images and all of his personal work and investment in helping to SAVE BRISTOL BAY.
