There are a few options when it comes to going to the toilet while camping. One is to get a portable toilet. These are self-contained units that you can put bags into. Another option is a toilet seat that is designed to fit on a standard five gallon bucket. Perhaps the simplest one, (other than squatting in the woods) is a seat with legs. With this you have the option of simply setting it up in the woods, or placing a container under it.

If you’ve ever sat on a “zero-gravity” chair, you know how comfortable they are. I don’t know that I would describe the feeling as a floating sensation, but sitting in one of these is definitely more comfy then sitting in a regular lounge chair. To me, the effect is most pronounced when sitting rather than fully reclined – it feels like you are lighter, somehow. Combine this feeling with easy access to refreshments thanks to a cup holder, and you’ve got the ideal summer experience.

If you are inviting a large group of people to an outdoor celebration, you should consider getting a large outdoor shelter or tent. You never know when it may rain, or if the sun will be beating down so hard that guests will be seeking out shade. Of course, there is always the option of people sheltering themselves in your home, but that may not be practical or even possible. Don’t forget that these types of tents can be rented for a fraction of the cost of buying, sometimes with installation included.

If you own a boat, whether for recreational activity or as a business vessel, you may have found yourself needing a decent lighting set up when out on the water or tied to the dock at night. A set of marine LED spreader lights can provide a soft light while lighting up a wide area. More and more boaters these days seem to prefer LED lights over Halogen, so it’s best to do a little research before buying.

If you enjoy taking the family or that special guy or gal out on a picnic, one of the possible issues you might be faced with is having to place food, cups and plates on the ground. Even if you have a picnic blanket, this might not help with keeping ants from making their way onto the blanket, or having to deal with wet grass after a rain storm. A solution would be to buy a roll up table that comes complete with its own carrying bag. Simply keep the bag in the car trunk and whenever you find yourself needing a table, voila, you can have one up and assembled in a matter of minutes.
