Thanks, Here’s Some Free Stuff

You (our loyal and awesome readers) are the reason we exist, continue to gather our thoughts and create fun (or at least we hope) videos.  So, aside from our efforts to entertain, inspire and share what we learn along our journey, we feel we owe you a little something extra.

thanks for following

Then it hit us, we have some pretty cool stuff lying around that you might like to have.  From the stuff companies send us to test (we’re like car crash dummies with slightly less stuffing) to the ones that get so excited when they see us raving about how much we like their product, they send us more of it; we have some pretty awesome extras!

Rather than trying to find nooks and crannies to house these extras (or selling them on ebay), we thought “we should give them to you”.  The only problem is there isn’t enough to go around to everyone.  So, we are running a few easy contests to give everyone a fair chance.  This is the first of many!

Here’s the scoop:  From now until Wednesday October 16th you can enter for a chance at a nifty solio bolt.

solio bolt

It’s a small device that captures the power of sun’s rays and stores it in a (built-in) rechargeable battery.  We’ve been using our Bolt for almost two years now to charge our phones, tablets, and digital cameras.  We like it and think you will too!

Stay tuned because if you don’t win this one, you might win the next one!  And again, thanks for following along and to hopefully many more years of adventures!

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    This would be perfect for those times when I am in the field taking photos and the battery has other ideas!

    I would cherish a bolt as my very first step toward solar independence. We go full Tim in June 2014 and hope to dry camp at least 1/2 the time.

    I think I did something weird…not too unusual for me lol but when I entered your giveaway, I got a thing that asked me to leave a comment, when I clicked it told me thank you. So I have no idea what comment I left, but thought Id leave an actual one 🙂

    Ive been quietly following your blog for almost a year now… My dream is to get an RV to full time in after kiddo graduates high school. I have one of your videos saved that I always show people, and they go from telling me Im nuts to saying “take me with you!”

    Im still saving up here, so since I dont have my RV just yet I dont have a whole lot to contribute…but I have learned SO much from your blog and love seeing someone my age doing this, working and living on the road…you are both very inspiring!

  • Rachel

    My folks just bought their new Home On Wheels, and what an amazing “Housewarming” gift this could be. I would be curious if you or your readers would have any other suggestions on gifts to give as my parents head off on their big adventure. Thanks again for such a great blog and opportunity.

    reply
  • Oooh, I love the idea of this product. We have solar panels that charge our RV batteries, so why not one to charge our devices. Thanks for thinking of all of your readers with these giveaways 🙂

    reply
  • KathyP

    In 2012 my husband and I went to Wyoming for several weeks. Recharging was always an issue. We’re planning on going back out west next year for an even longer trip. The mini solar charger will be a must have.

  • Mark Beresford

    Now this is a great idea especially as my smartphone gobbles power…Though will it work with British sunshine?? 😉

    Love to have a solio bolt — you guys have turned me onto a lot of solar applications and that is a bonus !!!

    reply
  • If I win this, I promise to…..USE IT OF COURSE! Even before we get our RV (We’ll be hoping to purchase during or after the big RV show in Tampa in January. Are you guys going?? We’ll buy you a beer! 🙂 )

    My wife and I are super excited to make this dream come true 🙂

  • I KNEW there was a reason I haven’t purchased one of these yet…I’m supposed to win it, right??? Love the blog and your Winterizing post is one I link too so often for those who have questions about RVing in the winter/snow. That post saved our butts when the temperatures dropped to 10 degrees in Benson Arizona. Love what you guys do!! xo

    Hey you two!

    We just entered the contest & mistakenly entered twice so ignore the second. We’ve changed plans now instead we are leaving for Tuscon to meet up with a caravan and traveling to Puerto Vallarta. We will stay there and travel Mexico for 4 months. Thanks for the opportunity to win a nifty prize!

    reply
      • Ron & Joan

        Yes we are bringing their book with us on the road. We met them at the RV show in Abbotsford. They were the “kick in the pants” for us to throw caution to the wind and go to Mexico. Great adventure ahead. Thanks for chatting with us beside Windy at the RV show.
