City of Rocks National Reserve

The City of Rocks National Reserve, also known as the Silent City of Rocks, is a United States National Reserve and state park lying 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the south central Idaho border with Utah. It is widely known for its excellent rock climbing and rock formations.

Monument Valley

Monument Valley, a red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border, is known for the towering sandstone buttes of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The park, frequently a filming location for Western movies, is accessed by the looping, 17-mile Valley Drive. The famous, steeply sloped Mittens buttes can be viewed from the road or from overlooks such as John Ford’s Point. Monument Valley provides perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless…

Review: HQST 200 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Kit

While searching for solar for my truck camper I did a little research and to my amazement I found that the HQST and the Renogy 100 watt panels where the exact same panels. However the cost difference was much different. I was looking at purchasing the 200 watt kit. The HQST kit cost was $269.99 at my time of purchase. ( At time of writing review the kit is $234.99 now) and includes two 100W 12V monocrystalline solar panel, a 30A PWM LCD charge controller, a pair of 20 ft…

Is The Nomadic Lifestyle What Its Cracked Up To Be?

Working by the beaches, in the jungle, on top of a mountain, in exotic locations. That all sounds amazing. We’ve all seen the cool Instagram pictures of the so-called digital nomads. They seem to live the perfect life. I’ve been a nomad since June of last year. Before that, I had left Canada to travel for 1 year. This is what triggered my interest in officially becoming a nomad. It’s definitely a cool lifestyle. I would not have it any other way right now. But it comes at the cost…

Review: Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station

Our Thoughts: We were sent the Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station about two weeks ago to try and give an honest unbiased review. I must say we were impressed by the quality of the Jackery Explorer 240 and the ease of use. However I found it very hard to justify putting out $250.00 for it. But if I am being I honest I see no use for these type of products. Most RV’s already have these types of plugs installed or could have them installed for way less. And…
