Camping in a remote area? Rent gear and a Satellite phone

This is a long weekend here in Canada. We call it the Victoria Day Weekend as we honor Queen Victoria’s Birthday.

This weekend often falls close to May 24th, so we’ve come to traditionally call this weekend the May 24. It’s not this year, but that’s what we call it. Why? Well, the May 2 4 is usually one of the first long weekends of the year. Certainly it’s often the first long weekend when the weather is nice enough to go up to our cottages or go camping. The 2 4 part comes in because well, we are Canadian after all and Canadians like their beer. A case of beer here contains 24 bottles or cans. Hence the May 2 4 weekend. A time of camping and fun!

Almost all my life I’ve been one of the people who traditionally either go up to the cottage or go camping on this weekend. This year we won’t be doing that, but I’d love to have made plans to go camping as I just love it.

If we were going camping I think we’d have to replace some of our gear, or perhaps rent some gear.

If you enjoy camping but haven’t been for a while because you don’t have a tent, backpacks, sleeping bags, cooking equipment or other camping related gear you can always visit Lowergear.com and check out their camping and GPS rentals. You can rent everything you need from Lowergear.

There’s actually several benefits to renting camping equipment that I can think of. If you don’t go camping very often you might not want to buy a bunch of camping gear and have to store it in the off season only to pull it all out once a year or even less often. This might be especially true if you live in a condo or apartment, or even a small 1920’s house like ours that doesn’t have much storage space.

Camping gear can be really expensive and if you aren’t using it- why buy it when you can rent it. Wouldn’t it be awful to buy say $1000 worth of camping gear, store it in a basement or garage and then when you do need to use it find that it’s been either water damaged or chewed and damaged by mice.

Now, we have most of the camping gear that we’d ever need – including a pop up trailer! However, if we were going in a remote area with tents and backpacks it sure would be nice to have GPS gear or even a satellite phone. That would up the safety factor that much more.

If you are an avid camper and thinking of purchasing a high tech piece of camping equipment, but you aren’t all that sure that it would suit your needs you could rent the gear from Lowergear.com and basically give it a try before you buy.

Check out the Lowergear.com site. You’ll be surprised at just how high tech the gear is, and at the wide selection too.

If you are going camping this weekend – Be Safe!

Have you ever wished you could track your teens movements by GPS?

Have you ever thought about GPS tracking and how handy it would be to equip your vehicle with a GPS tracking unit? I’m sure many a parent has thought of how nice it would be able to use a teen tracking system when their child is late coming home.

Are they ok? Did they get in an accident? The road conditions are bad, could they be in a ditch some where, where it would be hard to find them? All parents have those thoughts from time to time don’t they?

livewiregps.gif When GPS first came out, and even as recently as last year it was much too expensive for the average home owner to have installed in their cars. The cost of the unit and monthly service fees were just too high. Now there are user friendly systems for under $500. GPS systems like the LiveWire by lightningGPS, see photo, make tracking affordable to small businesses and families alike. You can even see how the livewire LightningGPS works by watching this short demo.

If I were a business owner with a small fleet of cars or trucks I’d most definitely consider using the Livewire GPS tracking system and I can see how easily it could be used to track a teenage driver as well.

Would you ever consider using a GPS tracking system on your vehicle? I’d love to hear your reasons why or why you wouldn’t use one.

My reasons for thinking this is a great idea, especially for tracking a teenage driver are simple. 14% of all deaths due to motor vehicle accidents involve teenage drivers, plus these driving deaths occur on weekends at least 53% of the time. 1/3 of these accidents were related to speeding.

Just think, if you were able to track the driving movements and driving habits of your teenager you could sit down and talk with them about their activities and perhaps prevent a fatal accident from occurring. It’s all about saving lives and keeping teenagers safe as far as I’m concerned.

Also, as I mentioned earlier. Suppose you set a midnight curfew for your teenager. They went out with friends and now it’s two in the morning and they still aren’t home. Worried? Well, you could just use the real-time location of a mobile unit system that comes with the livewire GPS to see if the car is moving and to see where it is. If it’s moving you can even track what speed it’s traveling at. If the cars not moving you can see if it’s in a remote location and possibly send help directly to the vehicle if you are worried that your child might have been involved in an accident.

You can of course also use this system if you discover that your cars been stolen. Did you know that approximately 1.7 million vehicles were stolen last year in the U.S. yet arrests were made in less than 15% of these thefts. Having a GPS system in your vehicle might not only help you assist the police with recovering your vehicle, but it might also help catch the thief.

I bet your insurance company might even appreciate it if you had a GPS system in your car. Perhaps they’d lower your insurance rates. Now wouldn’t that be nice.

Obviously I can think of hundreds of reasons why having a GPS system in your car would be a fantastic idea. I’d love to hear your ideas on the subject.
