As an editor, it’s literally my job to know what readers might enjoy seeing on our site and in Gear Patrol Magazine. (cough…cough…) I’m not always right, but I think overall our batting average is pretty high. Regardless, it’s most satisfying to me when a story we publish becomes surprisingly popular because that means one or more of many things: we’ve entertained, informed, struck a chord or scratched an itch.

Those qualities are founding principles around these parts, so not only are we humbled to have you along, we’re glad to find some solid, common ground. Thanks for reading. -NC
