    Overnight Camping Gear Must-Haves
    Overnight Camping Gear Must-HavesGoing out into the wilderness in order to rekindle one’s connection to the nature is a great idea. Unfortunately, a lot of people take this notion only half way through. Going to the park is still not good enough and neither is going on a two hours...

    This is what happens when you have time and talent on your hands and one too many VW Bus hulks haunting the yard.
    Simply well done.

    The kids here in Oz, Brian, refer to a VW Beatle as a 'punch buggy" and take delight in being the first to punch their mate's arm when they see such a vehicle in the street. The VW Kombi Van is referred as a 'double punch buggy', and its sight is met with two punches to the arm. Progressing naturally onto your above photo would make this engineering wonder a veritable boxing match!

    If you need to get off grid but still need some power - without building a power station of your own. Great for camping, boating, RVing - or living in a van down by the river.

    Do you have a weekend get away - want some moto fun but don't want to carry or ride a full size bike ? Do you have miles of bicycle trails that you want to enjoy but hate the up hills ? Do you live on a boat - or a van down by the river and need a way to get around town quickly ? This could be your solution!

    Say hello to the Super 73

    The Super 73 has the look of an old lawn mower mini bike from the 70's - that boxy frame is welded into my child hood memories, and I have suffered many a rash from a 5 hp mower motor. Ah, youth before the interwebz.

    Powered by a Lithium battery, and of course its' pedals, the bike is capable of speed rushes up to 25 mph. Running on fat beach tires with a 4.25 foot print and 20 inch wheels stopped by disk brakes at each end. This hummer is ready for the sand or the dirty back woods. The 1000 watts of umph is at the touch of your thumb - though I would have preferred a conventional wrist twist throttle.

    The battery is removable, so you can charge it in your office while you grind away at work. A charge will last a claimed 20 miles. But the best feature of all?... the integrated bottle holder and opener - admit it, you know you gotta have those. Add a set of lights, and run it as a commuter? No campus will safe again. Sure - why not.
    Early adopter price is 1799 - get it quick

    #2 I had a feeling the price was extremely high! Eventually it will drop as prices do if the market for these becomes large.

    #1 The Electric bike market is growing - unfortunately - it has some ridiculous prices to it too. Once they get to the cost of a traditional moto-cycle - I am buying a real moto. This would be great for around campus or the camp ground.

    Thats SO cool @Brian McKenzie. I would love the Electric bike. Get tired going up a hill, use the throttle! And how much further a person could travel on their bike. I want one!

    I was pretty excited when this hit the Start Up venue and maxed it out with the Record in funding. The Coolest Cooler features a rechargeable blender, LED lights for night time, a bottle opener, concealed plates and a Blue Tooth speaker that can Sync up to your smart phone for playing the tunes. It will also charge your device with a USB plug. Perfect for tailgating parties, BBQs, Boat outings or Living off grid in a van down by the River.

    I have seen a similar (or the same?) item on Shark Tank. Looks pretty cool. The problem with the one on Shark Tank was the price.

    Camp .... The Summer Adventure
    These are the excursions of the Starship Tent
    Your 3 season mission:
    To dominate at new trailheads
    To geek out, camp life; red shirt paradise
    To boldly spend a full night under the stars


    While still just a concept, and likely not to get off the ground due to licensing issues - Dave Delisle has crafted the perfect escape pod for your weekend get away, or run away from civilization camp module. A great design with a nod to the beloved TV Series, I would definitely buy it. I could make the perfect B-n-B solution for back yard camping geek-outs when the ComiCon is in town and everything is sold out. Just don't show up in the Red Shirt Sleep Jammies - they don't bode well for survivability; unless you are a Scot and an Engineer.

    I had an ex-girlfriend that wouldn't go camping because there were not flush toilets. Needless to say - we did not survive the summer camping season. I like to camp. One summer between Sophomore and Junior year of college - I lived in a GP Medium Military tent; it was designed to sleep 12 without bunks...and it was bigger than my dorm room, I felt like I was nearly living in a castle. more on that later -

    Where do you do what you gotta do when you hafta go do? It's not something most people want to talk about - but it is a necessity of life. One of the things that bothered me about Walden - is that never once does he address hygiene, a critical element if you are living off grid and self sufficient - away from the civility of flush toilets.

    Introducing - the Royal thrown of camp toilets - as it is heavy, a bit of work to set up and drain and it is expensive. The Palm Springs camp toilet, yes - it even 'flushes'. Remember, a gallon of water is about 6 pounds - so when this unit is full - it will be close to 40 pounds - and not fun to move, plan accordingly.

    It's time to pack up and hit the road, spend the weekends camping, out seeking the adventure of trails, lakes, beachs and what have you. Time to play hard and get dirty, squish the sand between your toes, make a viral face plant water skiing vid - it is all now at a moments notice, a full tank of gas away.
    But what of the clean up - the dirty, muddy, mucky, sandy, filthy awards that you earned while enjoying the great outdoors. (not to mention the smell of wet dog)
    Enter the RinseKit portable shower! The size of a standard ice chest cooler, filled with tap water right from the spicket, it gives a pressurized shower for about two full minutes. Not a 'Hollywood' shower - but enough to get the sand off your feet, the mud off your ankles and the big chunks off that dog.
    Enjoy the outdoors - just don't smell like you live there. Perfect for camping, tiny homes or that off grid yurt.
    The pressurized one is already on the market and around $100 - a heated unit is still in crowd funding; but until then, you can fill the current offering up with hot water if you do not want to wait.

    I don't know if the whole point of being in nature and trying to separate yourself with your daily life in the city can be still achieved with these devices, maybe for certain type of campers not, but I would definitely take the espresso maker and an inflatable tent.
