Now Funding: GoSun Chillest Cooler

Memorial Day has come and gone, and you most likely encountered a cooler at some point during the long weekend. Big or small, it had some form of ice – either the big bag of ice from the convenience store, or reusable ice packs you pulled out of the freezer.

Now Funding: Magpie M-30+ Laser Measurer

I will admit, I have looked over at tools – circular saws, levels, and the like – that are equipped with lasers and ponder just how they’d fit into what I need on my workbench. I mean, c’mon, it’s lasers! Getting that clean line of direction is slick. However, if you relied on lasers to help you measure, then, all the better. That’s what the Magpie M-30+ is offering up in a super-compact package.

I can’t be quite certain why, but it seems like we’re in a whole new era of electric bikes. We’ve written about them before, and will continue to do so.

Now Funding: JoGo Coffee Brewing Straw

For brewing up coffee in the outdoors, you’ve got all manner of options. While I started out with an Aeropress for our car camping, now I’ve got a more old-school percolator setup for my camp stove. If you want something even more minimalistic than that, you can opt for coffee in tea bags, instant coffee, or the JoGo coffee “brewing” straw.
