This week’s favorite products are perfect for any 4th of July camping trip. Our number one item this week is the Traeger PTG (Portable Tailgating Grill). Just because we are camping doesn’t mean we can’t use our favorite method of cooking on the road! We use the Traeger almost everyday and we use it for many uses. We use our traeger to grill steaks, bake cookies and pizza’s and we have even cooked a 7lb prime rib roast on the Traeger. The grill works well with our Solar setup and we don’t even need to run the generator when in use. We will never leave home without this grill! And what is the 4th of July holiday without a flag pole to fly Old Glory high above camp! This flag pole buddy attaches to our back ladder and is easy to put up and take down. Finally you need a great fire ring and chairs to sit around your campfire. We hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July holiday!


This week we used the Napier Sportz Tent and AirBedz Lite for our weekend truck hike to the North Slope of Alaska.  The tent fit perfectly in our F150 short bed truck and kept us off the ground. The dark blue fabric also helped keep the sunlight at a minimum in the land of the midnight sun. Setup was super simple with color coded rods with very little arguing between the two of us (you know that is a good sign).  We combined the Sportz Truck Tent with the AirBedz Lite as a perfect air mattress to sleep on in the bed of our truck. We also got great use out of our Gas One Portable Stove while tent camping on the North Slope to cook up hot meals everyday while traveling and we also made sure to bring our Bodum Coffee Press to start each day right!
