Have you ever wished you could ride on your cooler and drive it to where ever you need it? Well now you can! Watch this video, but don't let your kids watch or they will want to go for a ride on it....[More]

Over the last year I have done a massive amount of research on how to power my devices and my business once I am living on the road. I have looked into many options, including gas generators, hydrogen, and of course solar power. I have pretty much settled on solar power and this post will discuss some of the reasons why as well as some of the negatives of it.When I first started the search process I quickly discovered how much I had to learn and how much math was...[More]

This is a cool video I stumbled across with a guy showing how he hangs a hammock in his mini-van. All he really does is hook each end of the hammock in the doors, one in the front passenger door, and the other in the back cargo door. Then, by using the clips he has on the ends of the rope, he hooks the two ends of the hammock together. Take a look....[More]

I own a small SUV with a low tow rating of only 2,000 pounds. I have had a very hard time trying to find a camp trailer that weighs less than that amount and still has some room to move around. I have also noticed that many of these small, ultra-light trailers - such as the tear drops and A-Liners and even some small tent trailers - come with a bit of a hefty price tag. As a result I started playing around with the idea of getting a small...[More]

I was poking around YouTube and found myself hooked on the video below. The first gadget in this video is a cool camp chef stove with an oven, but the second gadget (around 1:10 into the video) is the sink. The sink stand and basin looks home-made from sprinkler pipe, some plumbing hardware, a wash basin with a drain in it, and a bucket to capture the water. But the foot pump to get the water from a 5 gallon water jug to the sink is really cool. Take a...[More]

A "Go Bag" is a bag which is prepacked for use in case the worst happens. Let’s say there is a wild fire, an earthquake, a tornado, etc., and you have to evacuate your house on short notice. You only have moments to vacate - what do you take, how long will it take you to gather it up, where is everything? This is where your Go Bag comes into play, because it already has all the essentials you will need. The idea is to be able to just...[More]

I was surfing through YouTube and I found the following video and I just had to share it. They talk about a neat set of collapsing cup and bowls. They also review a lightweight set of aeronautical steel silverware, small bottles, and much more....[More]

I sit in an old wooden chair under an old street lamp With its dimly glowing light Illuminating the scenes before me It glows like a thousand firebugs floating above my headThe sound of water roars by The night sky twinkles above my head Sounds of birds chirp in my ear A peaceful clarity fills my soul As if the water is washing all my stress awayClosing my eyes I see myself Floating down a peaceful river In a bright red canoe The oars are floating some where behind me...[More]

January is one of my favorite months, and not because my birthday happens to fall at the end of it. I love it because it's the start of a new year – kind of a “do over” if you will – and a great time to start getting ready for the coming Spring. Of course, what better Springtime activity is there than camping? This month is a great time to begin making plans for those first few camping trips you plan to take in the Spring. Maybe your first trip...[More]

Ever wish you could find a multi purpose, eco friendly cleaner that actually worked and was actually eco friendly? Well now you can stop looking for - and stop buying - those expensive cleaners because we have a great solution for you!One part vinegar to two parts water (I prefer apple cider and white do to its 5% plus acidic base) works as well as commercial products at killing germs. For light cleaning it is also as good, but for tougher messes it doesn't do as well. The recipe listed...[More]

Many of you have noticed our logo in the top left hand corner of the site and have I will attempt to answer those questions for you. Gripper came about one day while I was tossing out logo ideas to a friend. After listening to me for a while, my friend came up with the idea for the tire and at that moment Gripper was born. We dreamed up the rest of him, giving him a bit of an upscale punk feel, kind of a cross between a motorcycle...[More]

Wishing you all a very merry holiday season. May all your wishes come true. But don't for get to take a moment to go sliding around on the ice.Christmas Cheer This poem written by one of my Grandmothers.Crowds of people rushing here and there, A spark of excitement fills the air.Hustling around from place to place, Quick as lightning in the pace.Rich with songs of glory past Tells the story that lasts and lasts.In every store a Santa appears With his sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.Silver bells ring out...[More]

At it's beginning, December brings with it the holiday season. Weather you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Yule, Kwanza or another observance, this time of year typically is bedecked with lights, holly, warm fires and (if you live near me) lots of snow. In my home, we are gearing up for another kind of season – Girl Scout cookie season! My little girl is in her first year of Daisies (the first level of GS, ages 5-7)) and has been waiting patiently since September to get her cookie information and start selling....[More]
