We live in a tech world full of tech gadgets, so nerdy camping is something that has become very real. Some people (myself included) are a little more “tech dependent” than others, but at this point almost all of us have a cell phone, tablet, or i-something. We have become completely attached, and the idea of camping without my gadgets is a bit of a panic inducing thought.
I know that the idea is to get into nature, and away from technology. I know that. But it doesn’t stop me from wanting to listen to my favorite music on a hike, or to take that selfie in front of the waterfall. Maybe I need to be able to check my 8 email addresses at any given point, or click like on my best-friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s Facebook post. Not to mention the real help they are with GPS, and whatnot. So, for all of you techie Junkies like myself we are saved. There are many people that are getting on board with this, and they are coming out with products just for us. Like these:
CamelBak All Clear UV Water Purification Bottle
This amazing device actually cleans tap or clear water source into potable drinking water with a UV light! In 60 seconds you have water clear of 99.99% of bacteria and such. Making this and toilet paper the two absolutes for any camping trip.
Handpresso Wild 16-Bar Hand-Pump Portable Espresso Machine
I like coffee. A lot. This has to be one of the greatest inventions of the modern world. It is a handheld portable espresso machine. With this in toe, you just might get me to say until morning.
BioLite Camp Stove (with USB port!)
This little guy is amazing. You take some twigs and sticks, put them in the burning unit. The heat the cooks your food, but also is turned into electricity and will charge your USB device. Yeah, you hear me right…
Now, these are just the tip of the iceberg, but you can see where I am going with this. We tech junkies do not have to lose our mind out there in nature wishing that I could just check twitter one more time. One of the cool things about our chairs is that we are also ready for you to have all your gadgets, and have them right at your fingertips.
Check out our Big Kahuna chair! It is wide set for ultimate comfort, but also has a huge pocket on the side for your entire tech collection.
So, from one tech junkie to another, have fun and bring your tech. But don’t forget to enjoy what is around you, and the people who you are with.
