Fast Talkin'

How does using Yakima products make your life easier, or what do you most like about it?

My favorite thing is my new car stays clean and looking new. All the wet or dirty items can stay in the cargo box. And bikes on the back. Added bonus I can camp in my car SO easy.

What was a travel, vehicle, road trip hack that you've used?
Stop every now and a agin to take in a view. It’ll only slow you down a few mins.
What would your TED talk be about?
Progress not perfection.
How do you like giving back? What's the cause you're passionate about or favorite non-profit/organization?

I work for a non profit called Save A Brain. We educate people about the long term effects of traumatic brain injuries and concussions.
