Full-charge ahead in 2017!


My name is Vern Lovic. I have a number of websites online, of which Crank101 is one of them. I can be contacted here.

Crank101 is about:

Reviews of outdoor tech gear, including the best products in each class.

About me:

I am an American expat and digital nomad for the past eight years. I’ve been a life-long runner, and am trying to transition into ultra-endurance running races but having a number of injuries slowing me down! In the past I’ve run triathlons, biathlons, raced road bikes, and ran road races. I enjoy pushing myself to the extremes, and I’ve had plenty of occasions to do that over the course of my lifetime.

I love new technology, and I really have appreciated in the past some well-done articles by review sites which have helped me make purchases of tech gear I’ve used and loved for years. I have turned my attention to this focus in 2016 and 2017, and will be providing what I hope you’ll agree are very high quality outdoor tech gear reviews which help you decide which is the right product to buy for you.

This year again, we’ll be having our annual scholarship for two students (high school or college) who impress us with their applications. Info here.

I also have some computer and photography tech gear reviews at YouTube: Dialed Tech TV.

Best of luck and life to you in 2017!

  1. Dear Vern Lovic,
    I have completed a novel about growing up in the Bronx which starts with the protagonist in Suan Mokkh in Thailand in 1969. I would like to put a photo of the monastery on the head of my chapter 1 which will be on my blog. Can I use one of your photos?

    1. Send me a copy of the book Arthur so I can review it and see whether it reflects positively on Buddhism, as well as some other things. Cheers!
