CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Can you believe that I’ve NEVER been camping – EVER? Well, there was that one time when I was probably 7-8yrs old and our neighbors put up a tent between our yards and invited us to sleep in it one night. My 5yr old sister started crying within 15mins and that was the end of my one and only camping “trip”.

If by some chance, I ever do go camping (not really likely at this point), I will go prepared with all the tools, gadgets, and gear that any good outdoorswoman should have and maybe I’ll have a LIFESABER. Take a look at the video below and let me know what you think in the comments.

What is it?

The LIFESABER is a survival multi-tool that has a built-in USB generator, light, siren, UV water purifier, and a plasma firestarter.

Why do I like it?

I like the LIFESABER because it is designed to be multiple survival tools in one small flashlight sized form factor. I also like that it has a built-in generator that you activate by turning a crank. This means that you can generate power anytime you need to without needing sun for solar power, or an AC outlet to recharge a battery.

Something to consider before you pledge

The LIFESABER looks really cool (did you watch the video?), but there’s one thing that smacked me in the face when I was reading the details of the campaign and it might be a deal-breaker for a lot of people. They don’t plan to ship rewards until November of 2020. That’s over a year away. I don’t have to have instant gratification, but come on!

Where can I find more info?

The LIFESABER campaign ends on 10/11/19 and they are still working towards their funding goal of $30,000. You can pre-order a LIFESABER starting at $49. After the LIFESABER campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in November 2020. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

  2. camping…you should do it

    I’ve slept in the dirt and in the bed of my truck
    we’ve done tents to motorhomes (albeit very small ones)
    we’ve survived two tornados
    met a variety of wildlife
    had that first cup of coffee in a lot of places a helluva lot more picturesque than our deck

    if nothing else, if you survive it, you’ll have some great stories to tell…the catastrophes (and near catastrophes) generate the best tales

    the lifesaber does look fun

    however, right now we are paying off our self-contained, solar-powered camping gizmo…and yes, if the bugs can still feast on your flesh…you ARE camping

    1. Craig, I love your comment “if nothing else, if you survive it, you’ll have some great stories to tell…” IF you survive it 😉 Ha!
      And the bugs… yeah, that’s one big reason why camping would not be my thing. I get eaten by mosquitoes if I’m out in my yard for more than 5 minutes!

      1. me too
        while not particularly attractive in real life
        I must be super hot in the bug life

        mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers just adore me

          1. I was a condemned man and forced to live in the basement of a Russian Gulag for 19 years. If I had a LIFESABER my survival could have been much easier. I must get one.

  3. Never ever go into the wild without reliable knowledge of how to start a fire, a disposable lighter is a pretty cheap lifesaver.
