One thing I can count on after the snow melts here in New Hampshire is the rebirth of the mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums.  Having just spent 5-6 months indoors to beat the cold and snow, now I can look forward to 5 months of either staying inside or living in my screen porch.  So, [...]

Every year when Jeanne and I go to Florida for vacation, we talk about taking along one of our metal detectors to hunt the beaches for "treasure". So far we've never actually taken one with us because we'd have to dismantle it to put in our luggage. That wouldn't be a huge hardship, but we've [...]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When the opportunity to review the iBobber from ReelSonar was presented, I took the bait. I was excited to try a fishing bobber made for the 21st century that was also a fish finder, a waterbed mapper, GPS tagger & trip logger, and weather station.  We already had a fishing trip planned so it was [...]

LifestanceSolarLight - 9

I'm a big fan of LED technology. I have replaced many of the bulbs in my home with them, as well as all my flashlights. One place I've not upgraded to the brighter, more energy-efficient tech has been in the outdoor lights around my home. When we were offered the chance to test the Lifestance [...]

Hoverboards are two-wheeled self-balancing electric scooters that you stand on to ride around like a minimalist version of the Segway. Two wheels are cool, but what if you would rather sit down but still get from point A to point B? Check out the HoverSeat from BoatsToGo. It's an aluminum frame with two additional wheels [...]

The RainScarf is an alternative to bulky umbrellas and raincoats. This light weight 75″ long scarf is reversible with a soft polyester blend side for cool clear days and [...]

I have had many pocket knives over the years, from the first one I received as a cub scout to various sized and shaped ones I have strategically place throughout my world today. I have them stashed in my cars, desks, tool bag, EDC gear, etc. They are a very useful tool to have around without [...]

drysure

You've put in a full day of snowboarding or an extra long running session, and your footwear is quite damp. Instead of waiting perhaps days for the insides of your boots or shoes to dry, slip in a pair of DRYSUREs and your footwear will be dry by the next morning. Patent-pending DRYSUREs consist of an [...]

Have you or someone you know ever been caught in a rip current while swimming on the beach? If so, you know that it can carry you out toward deep waters surprisingly fast. To get out of the rip current you are supposed to swim parallel to the shore then swim toward the shore; but [...]

We've reviewed a dozen or more wireless cameras that can be used as a home security system. They are usually setup to send alerts to mobile devices when detecting motion or sound. These simple systems are a viable alternative to higher priced systems that require a hefty monthly fee and significantly more complex installation. They [...]

Home security cameras are perfect for keeping an eye on the interior and exterior of your home, but how can you easily find out if there are animals (or people) creeping around in your woods or yard without having to run Ethernet cables for communications and wires for power? One way is to setup a [...]

YodelTECH-YodelUP-1

Having a phone with you on the slopes is great; it allows you to coordinate your runs with your group and allows you to enjoy some tunes at the same time. But trying to access your mobile while wearing winter gloves usually means taking them off.  And even with a pair of conductive gloves you [...]

The days are getting longer, the sun is shining and the air is warming (at least here in California). It’s time to start thinking about breaking out the flip-flops and heading to the water. The Oru Kayak Beach Foldable Kayak makes getting out on the bay, lake, pond or a slow river even easier. Folded, it’s [...]

wormy

I haven't been fishing in decades, but the Wor.my compact fishing pole has me wishing it was summertime and I was standing on a dock soaking up the sun and catching Bluegills! This compact fishing pole system was designed in Hungry, and was a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign that raised over €16,186. Now it's being [...]
