Everything Our Editors Loved in April

Image
This month, we did a lot of thinking about death, the fate of the earth, and garbage, all while listening to a lot of Carly Rae Jepsen. What We ReadI’ve been savoring Alexander Chee’s most recent book, How to Write an Autobiographical NovelThis collection of essays is gorgeous—and at times heartbreaking—as it ranges from the author’s development as a writer under the tutelage of Annie Dillard, to his youthful experiences in San Francisco during the height of the AIDS epidemic, to the simple pleasures of tending a rose garden. I’m reading it as slowly as possible because I don’t want it to end.—Alison Van Houten, editorial fellowI wasin a book rut earlier this year, but I’ve shaken it off and stayed on a speed-reading tear after devouring Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being. The narrator, also a writer named Ruth, finds a Hello Kitty lunch box filled with letters, a journal, and an old watch, washed ashore on her tiny British Columbia island—then tries to unravel what happened to …

Image
If you look at the wrists of runners at major running events, there’s a good chance you’ll see Garmin watches. Today, the GPS juggernaut gives athletes five new choices for watches for training, navigating, mapping, and more.The Forerunner is a stalwart watch in the runner’s toolbox. And that line gets a major refresh today as Garmin announces five new versions of the watch.Garmin’s new line brings integrated music capabilities, full-color mapping, and advanced training, safety, and tracking to its GPS running smartwatches.The new Forerunner watches — 45, 45S, 245, 245 Music, and 945 — will track runs, monitor stats, and crunch the numbers. But they also “get to know all about an athlete’s performance, training history, goals, and more,” the brand reports.An interesting feature, Incident Detection will send a message to preselected contacts if the watch senses a crash. This function requires pairing with a smartphone, but it’s added peace of mind for those who run or ride solo. New Gar…

Salmon and Mining Clash in Small Alaskan Town: Film http://bit.ly/2WmanQV

The Chilkat River supports all five species of salmon native to Alaska. And now, a modern-day gold rush upstream threatens the health of the river downstream.Wild Confluence‘s latest film, “Rock-Paper-Fish,” explores the controversy along the Chilkat. Filmmakers Colin Arisman and Connor Gallagher interview the Haines and Klukwan communities, both parties in the salmon-mining clash in southeastern Alaska.

The $25,000 Volkswagen Pickup That Might Be http://bit.ly/2LeRYnU

Image
The VW Tarok pickup concept was just shown at the New York International Auto Show. It’s a small, fuel-efficient pickup truck option that will soon see production in South America.Will we see a Volkswagen pickup in North America? The jury is still out. But it does seem like there would be a solid market here for a small, fuel-efficient, affordable pickup.The Tarok Truck ConceptThe VW Tarok pickup concept shown is a near-production-ready vehicle. While that production is currently slated for next year in Brazil, it can’t stop us from daydreaming about getting one ourselves.Think of the Tarok as a pickup as both a great everyday driver and a great utilitarian pickup. With a tiny 1.4L four-cylinder turbocharged engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the small truck should get great fuel economy.The Tarok should also be relatively capable off road. It offers up permanent 4Motion all-wheel drive and an impressive 9.6 inches of ground clearance. For reference, a 4×4 Toyota Taco…

Death of the Smart Car: Mercedes Will Halt Sales of the Tiny Auto http://bit.ly/2vtF9v5

Image
Mercedes-Benz dealers just got the news that after 2019 there will be no more Smart cars sold in North America.The quirky, euro-styled city car that first hit our shores in 2008, to great acclaim, will be sold here no more. That first year saw 25,000 Smart cars roll off dealer lots in the U.S. In 2018, only 1,276 managed to find buyers.That sharp sales decline can be attributed to many factors. But the real sales slump came after it was announced in 2017 that only the plug-in electric ForTwo model would be sold in North America. The gas-powered ForTwo had made up a large percentage of sales up until that point. Death of the Smart Car“After much careful consideration, Smart will discontinue its battery-electric Smart EQ ForTwo model in the U.S. and Canadian markets at the conclusion of [model year] 2019. A number of factors, including a declining micro-car market in the U.S. and Canada, combined with high homologation costs for a low-volume model are central to this decision,” said Rob …

YETI Launches a Burly Cargo Crate, The LoadOut GoBox http://bit.ly/2ZMw3aQ

Image
The LoadOut GoBox from YETI is a waterproof, rugged container for truck beds, whitewater rafts, and anywhere you need to haul gear.It’s been more than a decade since YETI upended the cooler world with a burly, rugged food-hauler that can withstand the rigors of seagoing boats and bears. Since then, the brand has “YETI-fied” many products. It sells rugged, insulated mugs and cups. It builds arguably the world’s nicest bucket. And it makes the toughest tote bag money can buy.And today, it announces a foray into burly cargo boxes that will pit it against the competition in a new way. Meet the YETI LoadOut GoBox, a simple waterproof box that should withstand anything you can throw at it.YETI LoadOut GoBox: A Brief First Look ReviewYETI sent over a LoadOut GoBox for our team to examine yesterday. We’ve had it for less than 24 hours, so these are indeed early impressions.But the impressions are good. The LoadOut GoBox is exactly what you’d expect of a box YETI built. It’s heavy. It is rock …
