As a family we were looking for a better way to carry four bikes with our camper but we didn’t want all four hanging off the back. The Jack-It double bike carrier system didn’t only solve this problem but it solved the problem easily.

Does something seem fishy – or perhaps simply smell that way?

Unfortunately when we found the camper of choice that we wanted to purchase the one bunk tent had a hole in which the previous owner had a horrible self performed patch job done to it. While it was great because it allowed us to barter the price way down it left us with the repair, which luckily, turns out wasn’t that difficult. In this guide we are replacing the front bunk tent canvas on a…

In 1939, a fishy undergraduate bet at Harvard led to the first recorded “goldfish swallowing.” Goldfish obviously aren’t usually dinner, but the prank caught on, leading to a nationwide college campus craze of goldfish gulping as a popular thing to dare unsuspecting underclassmen to do. Maybe you’re wondering how on Earth someone could ever want to eat a fish you would otherwise find swimming around in a bowl or aquarium. Then again, maybe you’re suddenly…

Builders, family-oriented, the mascot for Oregon State University and the national animal of Canada, this commercial from the Great White North tells no likes – “The beaver is a truly proud and noble animal!” Of course, too much of a good thing can be its own bad thing, and beavers aren’t immune from that. Sure, they’re cute when mucking about in the water and it can be incredible to watch them instructively create their massive…

Reindeer and caribou are both the same animals, so let’s get that out of the way first. For instance, in Europe, they are known as reindeer, but in North America, people refer to them as caribou.
