Even if you don’t recognize the name, you’ve probably seen a picture of Henry Studley’s tool chest. All of the tools nestled together are awe-inspiring. Rewind back to 2015, and my father-in-law bought a pair of tickets for us to see the chest when it was on display in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was an amazing experience, and any hand tool user couldn’t help but drool over the tools nested within its mahogany case.

DESERT ADVENTURE BIKE TRAINING
The Southwest desert is arguably one of the most uniquely scenic areas of the United States. Its vast majesty, laced with a network of roads of every kind, encompasses six states. These backcountry byways can take us to some amazingly beautiful and desolate destinations. The catch?
