Full-charge ahead in 2018!


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.

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!
