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!

Friday Favorite – Hiking Sun Hat

This week’s Friday Favorite is Courtney’s Hiking Sun Hat. We’ve gotten a number of questions about it and it is the hat Courtney ALWAYS wears while hiking to protect her from the sun. It provides great sun protection and stays on even in high winds. The only downside is you lose some peripheral vision. You can get it at Costco or on Amazon below.

Do you have a favorite sun/hiking hat that you would recommend?

Friday Favorite – Our Sony a6300 Upgrade (Talking Cameras)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our upgraded Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera. As many of you saw a few weeks ago Steve upgraded from his Sony a6000 to the Sony a6300. Here he explains why and what made him choose to stick with Sony rather than go back to Nikon or Cannon. This Friday Favorite is a little more technical (since viewers requested it) but hopefully, everyone can gain something from the review.

PS Sorry for the KOA sign in the background. We didn’t realize it was in the shot until after Steve had finished. No product placement was intended.

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 🙂
