Recent Work-SPACE Trailers

Part of what I love about my work is meeting interesting people and sharing interesting ideas. I recently sold a sea kayaking image to a fella from Minnesota by the name of Todd Olson. He needed it for the backdrop to a trade show booth promoting his new company.

Todd and his brother Brennan are starting a company building lightweight trailers for your car. He figures the outdoors crowd is also the environmentally-friendly crowd, and you don't have to be a genius to realize that $4 per gallon gas (or higher) is going to cut down on your outdoors pursuits when you're rolling to the trailhead in a big old SUV, truck, etc. The idea is to trade the guzzler for a sipper and pick up a cute little trailer for your gear.

I think it's a good idea and worth a shot. What I didn't know, was that the Olson boys have had other good ideas. Yea, that's right, they invented the Rollerblade inline skate. Not bad for a couple of fellas from Minnesota, eh?

They're calling it SPACE Trailers, check it out.
