Friday Favorite – Our Water Siphon for Topping off our Tanks while Boondocking

This week’s Friday Favorite is our water auto siphon we use to top off our fresh water tank while boondocking in the Airstream. We tend to boondock in a spot for a week or maybe more and we don’t want to have to move the Airstream to go get water. We bought 2 big 7 gallon blue jugs for fresh water but they were a pain to pour into the fresh water tank (literally). So a friend who brews beer recommended this auto-siphon and we LOVE it!

Friday Favorites – Our Nature’s Head Composting Toilet (Boondocking Game Changer)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Nature’s Head Composting Toilet. Many of you saw our install video and our previous update on how we liked it. We’ve had so many questions about how it was working out we thought we would share our experiences plus the tips and tricks we’ve learned to make the process so much easier! For anyone who wants to boondock for weeks at a time we highly recommend looking into a composting toilet. It is a huge difference maker!

Friday Favorites – The Gaia GPS Tracking App

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Gaia GPS App. We have been hiking a LOT, as you’ve probably noticed. Steve’s dad has been sending us tracks of some of his favorite hikes for us to do. So we needed an app that would allow us to follow tracks and make our own. It’s been really cool to see how far we’ve gone, watch our progress, see our altitude change etc. We also know that we’ll never get lost since we can always find our way back real-time using the GPS tracker. This is by far one of the best apps we’ve ver purchased.

Do you use a GPS app or device when hiking or biking? What do you recommend?

Friday Favorites – Our WeBoost Cell Booster

This week’s Friday Favorite is our WeBoost Cell Booster & Yagi Directional Antenna. As many of you know we installed the cell booster in the winter with Steve from the More We Explore helping. We have started to use it in our boondocking adventures and a few of you have had questions on how it’s worked. So we thought we would share our experience so far. We love it and the fact we can still stream our favorite shows during dinner 🙂

Friday Favorites – Our Hensley Hitch

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Hensley Hitch. We’ve had a number of questions about our hitch so today we thought we would answer some of them and explain why we like our Hensley so much. We agree it can be overkill but we’d rather spend money on the safety of our home than anywhere else! With the Hensley Steve never worries about the Airstream staying behind us, steady on the road.

Do you have experience with the Hensley? Do you have a favorite hitch?

Friday Favorites – Campendium (Finding our Campsites)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our favorite website to find places to camp, Campendium. We use a number of other sites including Free Campsites and Google but Campendium is by far our favorite. We like the design and how easy it is to see important stats. We also like the format of the reviews and how most people leave pictures as well. We plan on documenting our travels with reviews on Campendium since it is still growing. So in the future to see the places we’ve stayed and how we’ve liked them be sure to check it out.

Do you have a favorite site to find camping locations?

Friday Favorites – Our TPMS System (Peace of Mind)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our EEZTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System. We installed our TPMS system on our Airstream before we took our October trip to Oregon. It provided incredible peace of mind knowing at all times what pressure and temperature our tires were during that long haul trip. We decided to spend the money and get sensors for our truck too, before we hit the road full time next week. Steve shows you how the system works and even how to set it up. It’s expensive but well worth it in our opinion for the peace of mind and quick reaction time we will be able to have before any major damage is done from a blowout.

Do you have a TPMS? What do you think?

Friday Favorites: Broom Hooks – Making Use of that Vertical Space

This week’s Friday Favorite are Broom Hooks or Grippers by Command Products. Ever since we redid our floors in our Airstream we have been using the broom and the Swiffer a lot more. We had been keeping them in the truck and that wasn’t working anymore, neither was leaning them in the closet. So we found these Broom Grippers and we LOVE them. It makes it so easy to always have the broom handy and we’re finally using the vertical space on the back of the door. Win Win.
