We find all of the items to be of high quality, durable, and easy to use.

“GoToob is the civilized, smart, squeezable tube for traveling, outdoors, and more.

Typical travel bottles are hard plastic canisters that pay no attention to the human experience at hand.

The award-winning and patented GoToob is made from soft yet rugged silicone, so it’s easy to squeeze, and it dispenses the product right away. A special, “no-drip” valve helps the cap stay clean.

The collar is made of two rings that unsnap from one another. The outer ring has an ID window, and the inner ring lists content indicators. Simply snap the outer ring off and back on to display “Soap,” “Lotion,” and more. A blank setting lets you write in your own content indicator.

A large opening means it’s easy to fill and clean your GoToob. The small 1.25 fl. oz. size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses, and other tight spots. The medium 2 fl. oz. size is the only size to feature a handy suction cup that can briefly attach to walls for moments when you need your hands free. And a large 3 fl. oz. size gives you maximum volume for longer times between refills.

All GoToobs are approved for airline carry-on, they’re food-safe (FDA), and they’re 100% BPA-free and PC-free. They are also covered by our lifetime warranty.

GoToobs are recommended for shampoos, conditioners, lotions, liquid soaps, condiments (ketchup, salad dressing, etc.), body-wash, toothpaste, secret sauce, magic potions, and many other low and medium viscosity fluids.” –humangear

We have about 9 GoToobs and use them not only when we travel, but around the house (RV). They have never leaked, are super easy to fill and clean, and the ones that can stick to the shower wall are especially awesome when you are short on shelves.


“The double standard softener & conditioner produces twice the gallons compared to the standard model and is the largest compact and most user-friendly RV/Marine softener on the market.   Built for the owner of any RV/Marine model, this 16,000 grain unit is a perfect fit and supplies approx. 40% more soft water than any other unit on the market. It simply regenerates with 2 boxes of common table salt in less than 30 minutes and provides the owner with soft water up to 1600 gallons or up to 40 days. Built for the owner of any RV/Marine model, this 8,000 grain unit is a perfect fit.   It simply regenerates with 1 box of common table salt in less than 15 minutes and provides the owner with soft water up to 20 days and has been #1 market leader for several years.The softener provides soft water that prevents hard water & rust stains, avoids scale build-up, improves taste and odor, increases lifespan of appliances and will also improve rough dry skin while increasing lathering of soaps. Features easy to carry handle, large mouth opening for easy salt addition, quick and easy regeneration, easy and fast hook-up and its compact space-saver design results in much lighter weight. Its compact size allows it to be installed in the tightest places. It utilizes a standard hose connection between park faucet and your RV, requires NO tools or electricity and its compact design (22”H x 9.50”dia. OR 22” h X 6.75” dia.) can be easily stored in your storage bay or dock side locker. It will allow high flow rates with very low pressure drop. The inlet high-flow shut-off control valve will allow a very slow rinse resulting in improved water quality and greater capacity and is also designed with a 360 degree swivel for easy connection of inlet hose and travel friendly option of cap & plug to prevent leakage.  Back-flush adapter is included for quick reverse connection when required. Unique, patent-pending design includes hardness test strips, storage inlet/outlet caps, handle, inlet hi-flow shut off valve, inlet and outlet hose adapters, back-flush adapter, high pressure 4’ white drinking hose and a full  cradle base for a very secure & stable setting.” – On The Go® Portable Water Softener, LLC

This may seem like a luxury and waste of weight and space, but with the unpredictability of water quality and hardness throughout the country, this is a must have item for any RV we own. Since adding this water softener we have had technicians comment on how great our water heater and other components look. They always think we just had it serviced because there is no buildup and the anodes last much longer. Charging it is super easy – you just dump in a container of table salt and flush it. I read that washing linens with salt can help soften them (I’ll have to research that again and add a post), so instead of wasting the salty flush water, I run it through a wash cycle or two. Saving water and our appliances. Score! We typically charge ours every 2-4 weeks. It comes in a couple of sizes, so choose the one that works for your water consumption.

“Lynx Recreational Vehicle Leveling Kit, 10/Pack. Modular designed levelers not only configure to fit any leveling function, but they also withstand tremendous weight. To use: simply set them into a pyramid shape to the desired height that the RV needs to be raised and drive onto the stack. The levelers can also be used as a support base for other stabilizing equipment. Use under single and dual wheels, under tandem axles and under jacks. 8-1/2 inch x 8-1/2 inch with 1-1/2 inch thickness to give 1 inch lift. The 10 pack comes in an easy to store nylon bag and weighs less than ten pounds.

Lynx Stop ‘N Chocks, 2 per Box. Leveling your RV has never been easier. The only self-positioning guide. Now you’ll hit the top of the stack every time. The perfect accessory for your original Lynx Levelers. Just place the Stop -N Chock on a stack of Lynx Levelers, butt the stack up to the wheels, slowly idle your RV to the top of the stack until you Stop -N Chock. It’s that easy! Strong and durable. Easy to clean. Safe and easy to use. 8.5 inch x 8.5 inch x 6 inch.” –Tri-Lynx

It’s like Legos for your RV! We have a set of the wheel chocks and 2 packs of 10 of the levelers. We use them not only to level the trailer, but also to put under the hydraulic jacks (many resorts require something under them), stabilizers, and to get hoses and cords out of dirt hookup areas. They are easy to clean, stack conveniently into their carrying case, and durable. We’ve had the same ones since 2010 and aside from some color fading from being in the sun, still are like new. Yes you can use boards you might have lying around, but these are lighter, store easier (and neater), lock together, and are easy to drive up on. We put the chock on the back leveler so that we know when to stop backing onto it without yelling at each other.

Simplify your nutrition with Shakeology®, the Healthiest Meal of the Day®. Replace one meal a day with Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Greenberry, Chocolate Vegan, or Tropical Strawberry Vegan to help increase your energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, and feel great.*

This is our go-to breakfast just about everyday and if we don’t have it for breakfast, it is our afternoon or evening snack. All of the flavors are great (we have them all) and the recipes are endless. The individual packets are easy to pack for meals on the go.

Can’t decide which flavor to buy? Then a Shakeology® Taste Sampler is the perfect way to try our most popular flavors before committing to a full-sized bag or combo box. We have two Samplers available: a whey protein Taste Sampler as well as a Vegan variety (made with oat, pea, and rice proteins). The whey protein Taste Sampler contains 4 single-serve packets of Shakeology (1 Chocolate, 1 Vanilla, 1 Strawberry, and 1 Greenberry), and the Vegan Taste Sampler contains 2 Chocolate Vegan and 2 Tropical Strawberry Vegan packets. Both come with a copy of the Shakeology Welcome Guide plus several mouthwatering recipes. With our new Taste Sampler, you’ll know for certain which Shakeology flavor you favor the most.

Or you can be like us and just buy a full bag of each so that you can mix and match for even more awesome recipes!

This new 25-oz Shakeology Shaker Cup is stylish, yet sturdy, and capable of mixing one scoop of Shakeology with your beverage of choice in just a few shakes. These sizeable cups are ideal for Shakeologists on the run, and allow plenty of room for extra add-ins. Yet, they’re small enough to fit in most car cup holders. Get yours today!

We each have our own and use it to make Shakeology when we are traveling and don’t have access to our Vitamix. Fits great in a suitcase with a few of the individual packets for healthy travel meals.

Increase energy, lose weight, and lower your cholesterol in 21 days. In just 3 weeks, the Beachbody Ultimate Reset® will help your body get rid of the toxins you’ve been taking in for decades. This gentle, no-starvation cleanse helps restore your body to its optimal “factory settings,” so you can feel, look, and be healthier than before.*

We’ve done this cleanse as a way to recoup from hectic (or over indulging) travel and jump start healthy routines. It is easy to follow and the recipes have become some of our favorites.

Want to carve an intensely defined physique—without weights, without jumps, and without straining your joints? Then you’ll love PiYo, created by superstar trainer Chalene Johnson. It’s low impact, yet high intensity. No weights. No jumps. Just hardcore results.

What isn’t to love about a workout that can be done without shaking the trailer and no equipment? Perfect for those cold and rainy days when we can’t get outside for a hike or bike ride or when we just want a great workout.

We (and by we, I mean Chris) actually own the Mark II, but technology got in the way, so it is linked to the new Mark III. Most of the photos on this site were taken with our Canon (the rest are from cell phones).

We got this photo frame for Christina’s mom and she loves it. We bought it back in 2011 and it is still going strong being on continuously all this time. Mom looks at it all the time and likes that the pictures are large enough for her to catch a glance as she walks through the room. This is a great way to show off your digital photos. You can rotate out what photos are displayed by changing out the USB or memory card. We can mail her new photos and all she has to do is plug them in!

Cool Stuff We Can’t Afford (or Fit in the Trailer)

“Who says you have to get out of bed? The Selk’bag 4G Classic is perfect for people who feel restricted by traditional sleeping bags or for a cozy alternative to wrapping up in a blanket around camp. Velcro on the waist, wrists, and ankles prevents bag movement and excess bulk from impeding you from getting things done. Quick release closure on the sleeves allow you to easily free your hands so you can cook, play cards, or do other chores around camp while staying warm.” –Musuc

Where have you been all my life? I am sure we can find room in the RV somewhere for this…I know I can wear it all winter! Can also double as a Halloween costume if you get the right color and the right adornments. The green one would make a great dragon and the yellow just screams hazmat. I bet you could get it in white and become an astronaut. The possibilities are endless!

“May the force be on the table… From the movie “Star Wars” the lightsaber chopsticks series, which has sold more than half a million units, has appeared on the table as shinning chopsticks with an LED! The model is based on Darth Vader’s lightsaber in Episode 4 A New Hope. As the tips of the chopsticks are made of clear transparent molds, the lightsaber is lit up when you turn the switch on. The mold parts are detachable so that you can keep the chopsticks clean.” -Tokyo JAPAN Inc.

Excuse me, I think our geek is showing. Do I really need to say any more? Are you going to go for Vader Red or Luke Blue? May the force be with you.
