Outdoor Products

I’m always on the hunt for new or new to me innovative outdoor equipment. I’m not paid for advertising, I just thought I would create a spot to show new stuff I have come across. I would love feedback from people who have tried out different products and their recommendations.

Car-Top-Tents – how great are these! http://www.cartopcamper.com/

Air Bedz – Air Mattresses for the back of your truck! Now, if they would only make these for SUVs? http://www.truckairbedz.com/

Tents for your Truck or SUV – http://www.tentsonsuvs.com/

Shelter Domes – http://www.shelter-systems.com/index.html

I bought a Shelter Dome about 5 years ago and continue to use it today. I set it up on a gravel pad with a vapor barrier and carpet tiles. It makes an amazing indoor place to work – great for an art studio. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Zanfel –


I rarely do product reviews, but recently tried something that I believe is noteworthy. I had gotten into quite a bit of poison oak recently and it’s not fun stuff. Someone had give me Zanfel years ago, and I had forgotten it about it until recently. As soon as I got home, I took a shower and was still itching from the poison oak. After scrubbing some of this on and then rinsing it off, no more poison oak, no more itching. I couldn’t believe how well it worked! This will definitely become part of my outdoor arsenal. It’s made as a preventative treatment – to get the urushoil off the skin and relieve initial itching. If you already have an infected area, you could try it, but may need a doctor’s visit for better relief. I find Burt’s Bees Res-Q Ointment great for those areas.
