In April 2021 I did a write up on a little Powertech Power Station I bought for motorcycle camping and my impressions. At the time my two main criticisms were that the battery was too small and that the charge rate was too low. I am now upgrading to a 300 wat All Powers Power Stations which I am hoping has the right balance between, power, size, and charge rate.
When we head out camping on the bike we only pack our Luci lights which are a great solar rechargeable general light for around the camp, and our headlamps. We were recently put onto Knog headlamps which are a great headlamp and will be going into our kit for our next trip.
Free camping has become much easier with today’s battery technology. But how do you leverage that for moto-camping. Power stations are a great option as they are portable all encompassing unit that provides everything you need in the one unit.
Life is just so busy. And Covid has just added another layer of complexity and anxiety. Everyone wants something, Everyone is pulling you in different directions. What I love about travelling is that you can set all that aside … even for a short time … being transported to another place where there are no expectations, and you can just be another regular Joe.
For a number of years I struggled to find a camp chair for motorcycle camping that was small, light and comfortable. No you don’t need a chair but its nice to sit and have a cuppa at the end of the day.
I remember when I finally threw out the tripod chair in disgust and hit google trying to find a suitable option. My requirements, small, light, it had to have a back, and it had to be comfortable. This is when I found Helinox.
I love my Helinox chair.
With Deb away for a Stampin’ Up conference in Melbourne I was at a loose end. So on Saturday after a quick run around the house getting all (most) of those weekend jobs done (mostly), I threw my camping gear and some basic supplies on the bike for an overnight camping trip … somewhere.
