Living out of my Western Flyer and other musings about RVing TB style

“I mentioned last week when we were packing to leave for the beach that I was going to take my Western Flyer to use for my folding clothes. Now that we’re back, I can address the usefulness a bit more. The MBR in our Travel Trailer has no drawers. It has a set of cabinets over and around the head of the bed. Two that are squarish actually over the bed and two that are suitable for half length hanging clothes.”

“My Take On It: When you first look at the price it can definitely take you for a spin, since it’s not a budget bag! But trust me, it’s worth the money. You can get rid of the check in bags, have a super reliable bag that you know will last and last and last!”

Art for the Seattle factory and showroom

Tom discovered the work of sculptor Bill Rhodes on a trip to British Columbia in 2003 and commissioned the artist to create papier-mâché salmon for our factory and retail store, then located in Port Angeles, Washington. For our new factory and company headquarters in the Georgetown district of Seattle, and to celebrate our close proximity to the Duwamish River, Tom asked Rhodes to create a kingfisher, tern, and heron. You can see the birds (and the salmon, soon to be installed) on display in our Seattle factory and store, which is open tomorrow, Saturday, October 8th, from 12-5pm.

Student Buying Guide review: the Brain Bag

“Bottom line, obviously the Brain Bag is a premium backpack and Tom Bihn isn’t out to compete on price. The target customer appreciates design, quality and utility. Customers that buy from Tom Bihn tend to be loyal and repeat customers, just check out their forum community to see that, to me that says a lot about a product and company.”
