There’s a little part of me (little but loud) that says that if I could pick up one of these from GoalZero ($329 msrp), that I could totally travel the countryside by bike or something, living in a tent from campground to campground, and still be connected to the outside world.
Granted, that fails to take into account the fact that I’m a pretty pretty princess and would get tired of sleeping on the ground after a few days (most likely) and would cry if there were large bugs.
Maybe car camping. (Though the gas would kind of negate the whole off-the-grid benefits.)
(Also, this thing weighs more than 13 pounds, which would make backpacking/biking unpleasant. It’d be like carrying my smallest dog on my back all the time. Which, frankly, I sometimes have to do, because he’s needy. Beside the point.)
Also: I still have too much stuff.
Must remedy this soonish.
(Can you tell I haven’t had nearly enough coffee yet today to be coherent? Why, yes. Yes, you can.)
