Nifty camping gadgets

I thought I’d take a stroll through gadget land and see what’s new for camping.

This is a portable oven that reaches 300 degrees. Enough to roast a chicken or bake cookies.

I haven’t been able to find any information on it other than it’s a prototype from Taiwan Textile Research Institute. But it’s still pretty nifty.

How about these…

They are bottle opener sandals. You can’t leave home without a bottle opener. Right?

Look what else I found… Now that’s a power roaster.

This one’s pretty cool. It’s a solar powered cooler. But it will charge your cell phone. It also has speakers so you can plug in your ipod and listen while you walk. Or drink.

And last but not least everybody needs one of these to sit around a campfire on those cool evenings.

Look, I found this one too…

OK. That’s enough fun for now. See y’all in a couple of months.

Halifax RV Show 2010

Well the RV Show was this past weekend. What a blast we had. It was so very tiring, but oh so much fun.

And the rigs… Oh the rigs… RV’s sure have come along way. It seemed like the new thing for this year was the outside kitchens. Yup. You lift up a door on the outside of the RV and it reveals a kitchen complete with stove, sink, fridge, cupboards and drawers. Silly me, I forgot to take a picture of one, but here is what they look like.

We met some of the other campground owners from Nova Scotia. And lots and lots of campers looking for new places to go camping. Hopefully they’ll hit our little spot this year. It was also nice to see some of our seasonal and regular campers again.
