Bike Tent: Ride a bike, pitch a tent

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2009

Bike Tent: Ride a bike, pitch a tentHow many times have you been riding your bike when you’ve said to yourself “Gee, I sure wish I could park this baby and pitch a sweet tent”? Maybe it’s because you want some alone time. Maybe it’s the safest place that a 30 + year old guy can listen to Hannah Montana without getting teased. Whatever the reason, you now have a home away from home.

Just place your front wheel on one end while your bike frame stabilizes the other with anchor, cords, stakes, and a bag included. You get three mesh panels (2 on side, 1 on the end) that give you some ventilation and viewing windows.

Activetrax AM/FM radio, MP3 speaker

Activetrax AM/FM radio, MP3 speakerWe’re always on the lookout for MP3 speakers, so we had a chance to check out this one from Seattle Sports Co. “Activetrax On the go audio”. It’s designed for camping situations and features AM/FM, weatherband and also serves as an MP3 speaker. It comes with it’s own protective case and can operate by either solar or crank power. So it would seem to be ideal for camping.

As an MP3 speaker, it does the job, but don’t expect high quality sound. It gets pretty loud, but as with most of these type of speakers, the louder you crank it, the more sound problems you have.

Tauntaun sleeping bagSay you’re a rebel stationed on the ice planet Hoth. You venture from the safety of Echo base to find your missing friend. You’re locked out because they secure the base at night. So, you find your friend and he’s injured.

You have two options: Either slice open the belly of a Tauntaun and put your friend in it’s warm belly(Ewww!) or warm him up with this Tauntaun sleeping bag. I vote the sleeping bad, because we all know that Tauntauns smell even worse on the inside.

Rechargeable portable blenderOne thing that really makes it difficult when trying to rough-it in a camp site is the noticeable lack of frozen drinks. Sure you have plenty of ice in the cooler, but what if you want to blend up a margarita or other frozen concoction?

Well, it’s a good thing Coleman is looking out for you with their rechargeable blender. This camping gadget is able to blend up a 48 oz pitcher of drinks in about 30 seconds and can mix up as many as 30 pitchers in one charge, which should get most people through a weekend of mixing it up with nature.

The cordless blender has two basic settings: “blending” and “not blending”. It comes in a silver stainless steel finish and the pitcher locks into the base for easy and safe transporting. We’re not sure if it would hold up to blending
