Look What I Found!

I ran out of time to winterize my trailer so I went inside and turned on the heat to keep things warm overnight until I could complete the next day.  Once the fan cut on there was an awful vibration so I went up on the roof to investigate and found a mud dauber nest on the blower fan.  But I also found what is in the picture above.  Luckily both the birds nest and the wasp nest were not in use so it was an easy clean up.  This is a reminder that you should check under your AC shroud at least once a year to keep this from happening – a good time to complete is during your winterizing process.

Product Review: Smart LED Light Strip

I was contacted by Aicliv to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. They sent me this smart LED light strip for free in return for my review.  I received the light strip with no prior knowledge of the specs and was hoping it was controlled via bluetooth so I could use it in our Airstream.  This model only works through wifi but it is a pretty neat product and works as advertised.

Campground Review: KOA Sweetwater, Tennessee

It has been a slow camping year so for us – real life keeps getting in the way.  However, we did get away for a week in April for the New Rattitude Rat Terrier Jamboree in Sweetwater, TN.  The KOA in town hosted the event and it turned out to be a nice trip.  We made some new friends and met a ton of great dogs that need homes.  The owners of the campground do a nice job at keeping the place clean and inviting – see more in the video below… 

Product Review: Suncore 10×42 Binoculars

I have been wanting to buy a pair of nice binoculars for a long time now.  My in-laws have these great binoculars made by Swarovski but the problem is they are $2000 for the pair.  And I have not had an extra 2K  that I could feel good about spending on a pair of binoculars that I would only use a few times a year.

Banggood.com reached out to me wanting to know if I would be interested in receiving some of their product in exchange for an honest review. So I went to their site, searched through their many products and decided to pick a pair of binoculars – just to see – so to speak. Needless to say I was very surprised to find that these $60 binoculars perform…not as great as the Swarovski pair but more than good enough for the casual owner.

Airstream Drone Shot

I had my new GoPro Karma drone out this weekend and got this picture of our Airstream and Ford Raptor in the driveway.  The whole Airstream Nerds crew is represented – the car on the right is owned by Tyler.

Brand New Lifetime 55QT High Performance Cooler Review

We bought a new Lifetime cooler and based on our experience so far it exceeds or at least equals the performance of the Yeti coolers but at more than a third of the cost of their smaller Tundra 45.

I mention that it leaks around the seal in my video but I am only repeating what others have said in reviews.  I had the cooler full of ice in the back of my pickup for five days through all kinds of driving – including 4-wheel driving on the sand at 30+ MPH – and I have not had any leakage at all.
