Watch this: It's the best of Always On, Season 4!

Season 4 was definitely the most fun we've had since Always On started one year ago. That being said, we're hitting the road in hopes of making next season give Season 4 a run for its money. In the meantime, here's our three favorite stories from the last couple months.

We couldn't help but notice Jeff's perma-smile and what seemed like an emotional journey back to his childhood when he visited NASA in Texas. Driving the SEV with an astronaut who's spent more than a month in space can have that effect on a person. These observations, along with the amazing space gadgets coming out of Johnson Space Center, landed the first segment of Jeff's trip to Houston a spot on our best of list.

Next up we have our rugged camera road test from Kona, Hawaii. Both the Olympus TG-2 and the FujiFilm XP 200 showed us how a rugged camera should be. They also showed us dolphins...lots and lots of dolphins. So whether you fancy rugged cameras, the Pacific Ocean, or just love seeing dolphins, give this road test another look and bask in the glory of the Big Island.

Of course the headliner of our best-of episode had to be a torture test. The fact that the Samsung Galaxy S4's outdoor experience in Vail, Colo., fills that slot should come as no surprise. This thing battled frigid waters, rock climbers, and mountain bikes. It came out pretty banged up, but, considering the utter brutality of the torture test, we feel it deserves a spot on our list.

That's all for this week! Tune in next week for what's usually our favorite episode of the season: the Always On bloopers!

In other news, we're in the process of determining the results of last weekend's torture-test giveaway. We will be contacting the winners later this week, so keep an eye out and thanks for participating!
