Friday Favorite – Fire-starters (For Those Stubborn Campfires)

This week’s Friday Favorite are fire-starters. We love campfires, especially when boondocking and you can use local sticks and wood. While sometimes it’s incredibly easy to get the fire started, other times the wood is not very dry or for some reason won’t light well. That is when we pull out our fire-starters. They burn hot for quite a while and get everything else to light before the burnout. They are a great backup to have around for any camper!

Friday Favorite – Yelp (Yum!)

This week’s Friday Favorite is Yelp. We use Yelp, either on the web page or through their app, almost everywhere we camp. We use it to find restaurants (since Courtney has dietary restrictions) but also breweries, ice cream, grocery stores and even sometimes propane! It is the only way we’ve found we can find restaurants that satisfy everyone in our families when we are all together. An absolutely essential app for us.

Friday Favorite – Hot Sauces (The Spice of Life)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our hot sauce collection. You know we like something when we devote an entire shelf of our small RV fridge to it. We add different hot sauces to everything! We have an array of everything from sweet and tropical with a little heat to fiery and love them all. Condiments are a great way to spice up meals without taking up too much space in a small RV kitchen or fridge.

Friday Favorite – Our Waterproof Hiking Boots

This week’s Friday Favorite is our waterproof ankle-high hiking boots. If you’ve been following our adventures, you know we love to hike, especially along creeks to waterfalls! Our hiking boots are absolute essentials for us. We both prefer ankle-height to prevent turned ankles on rocky trails, and believe me, they have prevented quite a few. We also love waterproof boots. They tend to be hotter than other hiking boots but for those stream crossing hikes, they are absolutely worth it for us to not have to stop and take our shoes off each time, or hiking in drenched boots. We own or know people who own and love their boots from Vasque, Keen and Merrill so we don’t recommend one over another. Just make sure to try them out to find the right one for you!

Friday Favorite – Books & Genres

This week’s Friday Favorite is our favorite authors and book genres. Reading is one of our favorite nightly activities and we spend at least 30 minutes reading fiction before going to bed every night, regardless of where we are camped. While Courtney enjoys reading fantasies, historical fiction, and classics, Steve has grown to love westerns, mysteries, and thrillers. Do you have a favorite genre or author you’d like us to check out? Let us know in the comments below!

Friday Favorite – Maya Tea (Serious Tea for not so Serious People)

This week’s Friday Favorite is Maya Tea Company. We have at least one cup of tea before we go to bed at night and Courtney drinks tea every morning as well. While we enjoy tea bags from local grocery stores our staples are loose leaf tea from Maya Tea. Maya Tea is a local Tucson company that ships throughout the US, so we can get our tea fix no matter where we are. Our favorites include African Rose Herbal, Vanilla Spice Herbal, Creme Brulee Black, and Apricot Black but there are many other delicious varieties as well. Do you have a favorite Tea of Coffee company that you would have shipped to you if you were on the road?

Friday Favorites – Costco (Where We Buy Our Staples)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Costco Membership. We debated whether Costco would be worth it once we lived in an Airstream and traveled full time but we’ve learned that it definitely still is. We buy almost all our staple foods from Costco and while we no longer have the room for bulk paper goods we get through the food items quickly enough to keep buying them in bulk. We also get propane when it’s available as well as diesel. Do you have a Costco or Sams Club membership?

Friday Favorite – Our Folding Military Shovel

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Folding Military Shovel. We knew we needed a shovel for emergencies while RVing full-time in our Airstream. However, we also try to limit the space and weight of every item we carry. This shovel is perfect. It is incredibly durable and yet folds up small. The carrying case makes it easy enough to take it with us whenever we might need it. We’ve used it to dig out firepits, fill in pot holes and distribute dirt/rocks in rutted roads. We highly recommend it!

Friday Favorite – Go Pro Hero 4 Silver (Time Lapse & Action Shots)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Go Pro and favorite accessories. Steve explains why we like the Go Pro so much, why we chose a Hero 4 and walks you through two fo our most used accessories. The Go Pro really allowed us to up our video game by giving us two cameras in order to get multiple shots of the same scene. It is also how we film our really smooth pans and hiking (using the gimbal) and our driving/ time lapse shots (often using the clamp).

Do you have an action cam? Do you love it/hate it? What’s your favorite accessory?

Friday Favorite – Hammock Time

This week’s Friday Favorite is Courtney’s, Eno Hammock. Hammocks have always been one of Courtney’s favorite things so it makes sense for us to have a camping hammock. We have the Eno Double Hammock, along with the Eno Atlas suspension straps which allow us to string up the hammock wherever there are trees. This hammock packs up super small and compact but can be setup in minutes for maximum relaxation. The parachute material breathes well and makes for a support swing. Love it!
