Battery camping solar charger

We like to camp. It started in Arizona when my wife and I were just dating (young, dumb, and broke). Our level of funding and experience dictated throwing a tent and supplies into the SUV and heading up into the mountains. We have since progressed on to a popup trailer, and now own a small Hybrid camper - although at 25 feet long some may disagree that it is small or “camping”.

Home Made Motorcycle Lift

Average: 4.1 (10 votes)

Every motorcycle owner knows that if you want to do any work on your road bike, even something as simple as changing the oil, it’s nearly impossible to keep the bike upright and stable.

Absolutely freaking impossible to hold the bike upright while you’re bent over trying to see the oil level in the window. I have no idea how the Harley riders or other Cruisers do this either.

How About an Associate's Degree?

GradI understand that what I am about to tell you goes against all the normal career advice you’ve ever been given. It probably goes against what you are already telling your kids, and what you’ve also been telling yourself.
