“Touring on a motorcycle and living by the way is
a glorious sport. He who has never rolled with a
softly purring engine between his knees out into the
country, stopping on the heights to drink in every
detail of the scenery; he who has never slept through
the cool, starry nights in the soft grass among the wild
flowers has not yet tasted of a simple, wonderful joy.
No man who has a motorcycle can believe himself to
have exhausted the possibilities of his machine if he
has not enjoyed to the fullest extent all the pleasures
of touring.” —Theodore Werle, Camping Hints When Touring
With a Motorcycle, pub 1915, found by Tom Berry.
Eureka Backcountry 1
The problem with a bivy (even a great one) is that it’s no tent. Duh,
…but if you travel solo and need the privacy a tent provides, the
Backcountry I makes a great ultralight choice. It weighs and packs like
a bivy, but is fully self supporting (no stakes needed) and lets you sit
upright inside for changing clothes, which is handy during rallies or at
public campgrounds. There’s even a bit of extra room for keeping some
of your riding gear covered. Screened twin track side opening doors
make entry easy. A unique screened hi/lo vent system lets fresh air
circulate even in rainy conditions. The taffeta nylon floor and fly, shock
corded aluminum poles, clothesline loops and mesh storage pockets
are all features that make camping nicer and the Backcountry a top
value for your solo trips. Green Backcountry 1 sleeps one. 3'×8'×3'
(packed size 4.5"×15") 3 lbs. 15 oz.

Morpho 2P Air Beam
That’s right, no poles! Originally designed for extreme mountaineering,
this innovative 2-person, all-weather tent features two incredibly strong
inflatable airbeams enclosed in puncture-resistant sailcloth shells that can
withstand twice as much force as standard aluminum poles. Even if the airbeams get bent all the way to the ground, they simply spring back into shape. A broken
pole is usually a tent’s death sentence. In the rare event that you somehow accidentally
damage one of the airbeams, no problem…they’re inexpensive and easy to replace. Plus,
no poles means less to worry about misplacing or damaging. With remarkable strength,
easy setup, and beautiful simplicity, this shelter can handle it all: vicious downpours,
high winds, and early season snow. It’s durable, packs tight for extended trips, and takes 45 seconds or less to set up. Stays virtually condensation-free, thanks to waterproof/breathable fabric and vents. At 40 square feet when erected, the outer fly provides an additional 14
square feet of vestibule space. Nasty weather? Simply close all the doors for impervious storm protection. Mesh canopy for comfort, ventilation and bug-free star gazing. Rear scoop further aids ventilation, even when all doors are closed, and the scalloped tail helps keep body
taut. Included foot pump collapses flat as a pancake. Sleeps two. Green. 8'8"×5'4"×3'5". Packed size 7"×14", 5.1 lbs.

Black Diamond HiLight 2
A spacious one-person lounge or a cozy twoperson assault-style tent, the HiLight uses
a two-and-a-half pole design for steep,
water-shedding walls and a
wide, high ceiling. Three-season,
freestanding solo shelter that
is roomy enough to sit up in, yet packs
down small and weighs less than lightweight
tents for one or two people. The full side-opening
door has a built-in no-see-um mesh window, and coupled with another window on the opposite side, the HiLight
offers excellent ventilation. The canopy is built with highly waterresistant and breathable Epic fabric, and the floor is double silicone coated nylon ripstop. For keeping track of the little things,
the HiLight has two interior net pockets. Sleeps two. Maize.

Scenic Pass 2
Wherever you choose to call it a night, this dome will feel like home. The strong and versatile two-pole shockcord design
is simple to set-up and convenient to get in and out, with two large side opening “D” shaped doors. A 2-person tent with
two doors…well, this provides airflow that’s adjustable to wind and weather shifts, and it just makes sense for organizing
middle-of-the-night ingress-egress. Bat wing vestibules cover the doors and allow for excellent ventilation, even in rain.
Speaking of the wet stuff, the durable floor features a wrap-up side design that will keep you dry in the worst of weather.
Four interior storage pockets and an included gear loft provide plenty of extra space to stow things. A great self-supporting moto-travel tent that is big on function, but packs up small and light when it’s time to hit the road. Laurel Green.

Kelty Gunnison 2
Combine extensive technical features, a classic self supporting design and a great price…voila, you have the lightweight Gunnison tents. Their vaulted pole clips and ball ended seamless aluminum poles provide tremendous strength
that can resist high winds and the worst weather. Double hang-to-the-side doors and mesh panels allow great cross
ventilation and flexible access. The nylon tent floor and stretch resistant, fast drying polyester fly are both fully taped
for weatherproof strength. Quick release buckles attach and adjust the fly to make pitching and striking fast and easy.
Both doors have #8 YKK zippers with nickel plated sliders for years of trouble free wear. There are also two integrated
vestibules (front and rear) for keeping your saddlebags, packs and other stuff both out-of-sight and dry. All Gunnison
tents include two gear pockets and a mesh gear loft. The main vent and door zipper pulls are reflective so you can
see ‘em easier at night. These are elegant, feature-rich well-made, tents that you will enjoy wherever you make camp.

High Tech Cot
Sleep in bed-like comfort with this lightweight cot. Packs small, so
it’s convenient for taking along. Set up is quick and painless. When
assembled, it stands supported by bowed trusses 4" off the ground,
so you can sleep on your stomach, back, and even on your side in
suspended comfort. If your back can’t handle the cold hard ground, or
if you’re tired of sliding off of your sleep pad in the middle of the night, this
cot provides the perfect solution. Sleeps cool in hot weather by allowing air
to circulate below you, or combine with the Luxury Lite Pad for extreme comfort
and added insulation on cold nights. Low profile design so you can even place it
underneath your tent. Inside the tent, it will not damage the floor, and outside the
tent, no ground cloth is needed. You can walk across the cot without harming it. If you sit
on it, your butt will sit on the ground, but when you lay down, you float above the ground.
Even if you’re 7' tall, you’ll sleep great because there are no poles across the ends to hit your
head or feet. Also might make a nice parasail when combined with skates and a frozen lake (?).
Ultralight aluminum and polycarbonate construction. Supports up to 325 lbs. Comes with carrying

Therm-a-Rest Pads
What’s the point of a sleeping pad if it won’t stay under you? These pads feature Staytek™, a
specially-woven fabric that increases friction preventing you and your sleeping bag from
sliding onto the ground. The underside of the pad is covered with a durable nylon that
is resistant to moisture, dirt, and punctures. A noble product that’s worth its weight
in gold when camping.

end of a long stick to drive interlopers away from the beer cooler.
6.5". Package of six.

storage on long rides. Hook and loop enclosure. 23"×4".

day in your kitchen. You simply cannot own a better belt knife; perfect cutlery for
kitchen/camp paring and general food preparation (when you need that “surgeon’s touch”). The Camp Knife blade is 4" in length, 1/8" thick, and an overall

So you’re out on the road and that power bar you had this morning hasn’t exactly satiated your hunger. You know that greasy spoon is only 10 more miles down the road past the third
lake, but you can already taste their gaseous cuisine in your mouth from the last time you were there. Wait a minute…Lake? Why not a shore lunch? Why not indeed, any of these handy,
portable fishing kits are all you need to land that lunker…really. (If you do actually catch some fish, please send us a photo as proof…)
This kit comes complete with a lightweight, cork-handled graphite rod, reel, fishing
line and a tackle box (you provide the tackle). The ball-bearing-driven, open-faced
reel is a nice, smooth-running, stainless steel, brass and aluminum instrument with
drag and clutch options and can be easily switched for right or left handed anglers.
Pole assembles securely in seconds to 6' and disassembles to 15.75". There’s
plenty more space inside the soft-sided, foam packed bag for worms, lure spray,
more tackle, sunscreen, etc. Easily fits in a rear or rack bag, pannier or backpack
or can be strapped on anywhere there’s space. Rod & reel alone weigh only 12 oz.
Entire kit weighs about 1.5 lbs. Kit is 18"×8.5"×3.5".
The best of both fishing worlds, this travel kit includes both a high quality ball-bearing spinning reel with a 4.8:1 gear ratio aluminum spool and a durable but smooth
single action graphite fly reel with drag. The 7' long, medium action 4/5 fly weight rod
is constructed of strong, lightweight high modulus graphite, with a reversible handle
grip to accommodate both the fly and spinning reels. The rod disassembles in seconds into seven compact 14" pieces and packs up, along with the reels, into a heavy
grade nylon zippered carrying case lined with form-fitting foam. Compact enough to
strap to a rear rack, stuff in a saddlebag or even fit into some larger tank bags, this
combo is ready to catch nearly any species that swims. (You’ll need to provide the
fishing line and tackle for this one). Rod and reel together weigh only 13 oz. Entire kit
weighs 1.5 lbs. 15"×7.5"×2.75".

Ever wonder how most police officers are able to produce intense, bright light
from a single flashlight (not that any of us have ever experienced this first hand
of course)? Lots of cops carry these. They’re a couple of the lightest and brightest personal lights ever made. Besides sending heart rates sky high, they’re so
bright that they’re sometimes used as a self-defense mechanism to temporarily blind opponents. The Police Xenon delivers 7900 peak beam candlepower,
thanks to its powerful xenon bulb. That adds up to 114 whopping lumens, the
brightest flashlight we carry. The Police LED features an anti-roll head and has a
superbright LED for a total of 47 lumens. Because of their intensity, the included
3V “123” lithium batteries last 1 hour at full strength for the Xenon and up to
3 hours for the LED, slowly decreasing in strength thereafter. On the other hand,
the batteries have a 10-year shelf life. Built of machined aluminum with a rubber
armored sleeve and positive sealing o-rings, these are superlative pieces of work
that will drive back the dark when you need it most. Truly blinding and far reaching light. Please make sure you don’t go and do something dumb like point either
of these right into your own eye after you turn them on. Like we did. Ouch. Xenon
is 5"×1", 4.4 oz. LED is 5.7"×1.25", 5 oz.

Infinity Task Light
Inova X5 White LED Floodlight
Designed for the most demanding conditions, this may be the toughest lil’ flashlight you ever own. Machined from solid aircraft aluminum, the pint-sized and
water resistant Infinity features a bright, high-intensity white LED that throws a
beam for 30 feet and will last a lifetime. Driving this is patented circuitry that
manages the flow of power to the LED, increasing battery life substantially. Burn
time is up to 60 hours on the included AA battery. Metal clip allows for handsfree use. 8 lumens. 3.25"×0.75".
Blazing intensity from 5 brilliant white LEDs will show you what you are doing, or where
you’re going under any conditions. This is an extremely well-made handheld lighting unit
that is waterproof to 150' and turns on with a twist of the barrel. It uses two 10 year
lifespan 123A lithium batteries (included) that drive the emitters with enough punch
to be visible at a range of 2 miles under dark conditions. LED life is calculated at
110,000+ hours which oughta hold ya. A fluted body/barrel enhances grip. Think of it as
the Colt’s Dragoon of flashlights. 4.75"×1". 60 lumens.

Why the Whistle?
By Matthew Parkhouse (first published in the BMW MOA’s Owners News, Sept. 2010)
Well, on another return-from-Britt trip in the early 1980’s, I had left later in the day and was running
west very late at night. It was a warm summer night, and the wind was at my back but I was absolutely
beat. I figured it was something like 2 AM. My plan was to just pull off in the rather tall grass alongside
the interstate, cover the bike with a dark green poncho, and lay the sleeping bag out next to it. I’d be
far enough off the road to be invisible in the darkness. I would wake up at first light, a little more rested,
and finish the run to Colorado.
I pulled off, waited until there were no headlights approaching and rode slowly into the tall grass. It
did look tall, soft and comfortable. Suddenly I dropped about two feet into a drainage ditch! The sloping
side pitched me and the bike over and I ended up face-down, with one arm folded over my back, and the
Slash Five squarely on top of me! I could not move.
The bike quickly quit running and, in the quiet, I could smell hot metal and leaking gas. I estimate
I spent 20 minutes inching my way out of the trap I was in. As I worked my way out, as I paused to rest,
I had time to reflect on how “trapped” I was. Had I been hurt, say with a broken bone or two, I absolutely
would not have been able to get out from under the bike. I probably would have remained there until the
highway department came by to mow the grass!
I’d done some wilderness survival training with the Sierra Club in high school and remembered that
a whistle was one of the ‘ten essentials’ that should be carried on any wilderness outing. The reason is
that while an injured person cannot yell for a long period of time; a whistle makes a much more distinct,
louder noise, with far less effort by the person in distress.
I ended up being able to ride the bike out of the ditch and suddenly found I was nicely awake and
able to finish the trip riding through the night. Since then I usually have a whistle in my coat pocket. I’m
also much more cautious riding through tall grass where I can’t see where the front wheel is going!

wide world of SPORKS
The preferred take-along food handling tool for minimalists. Other catalogs have
been selling these elegant utensils for years (…uh, why?) There must be some
universal appeal to the utilitarian, ultralight, all-in-one, take-it-with-you, be ready
to eat “anything, anytime, anywhere” idea. The Titanium and the Teflon® friendly
Polycarbonate sporks pull triple duty with a built-in serrated cutting edge on
one of the fork tines, while the two eco-friendly bamboo versions help to save the
planet, one bite at a time. Pack one of these in a tank bag, fanny pack, cook kit…or
even a jacket pocket and always be ready to eat your Jell-O. Titanium/Polycarbonate

Collapsible Cups
Micro & Macro Tables
Now pay attention 007. These roll-up, fold-out aluminum
tables will keep your martini and potted shrimp off the dirt
and pine needles that comprise the ground cover at so many
unimproved campsites, rally and race sites, and “off the beaten
path” places without campground amenities like picnic tables.
Admittedly a bit decadent at first glance, but quite practical and handy in use. The
smaller Micro table is 11"×15" and will get your stove and other kitchen stuff off the
aforementioned terra firma. It packs to 3"×3.5"×15", and weighs just a tad over a
pound. The two person Macro is 24"×18" with longer 15" fold-out legs to keep your
stuff even higher off the ground. It packs to 3"×5"×24", and weighs 4.7 lbs.
It’s always useful to have a cup handy, but
hard to find room to carry one where it’s easy to get
to in a tank bag or jacket pocket. Regular cups are
too bulky and cylindrical. Cheap, unreliable and fragile plastic versions of this telescoping invention have
been around forever…but beautifully crafted, durable
stainless steel ones like these are rare. Packs neatly
anywhere so it’s always at-the-ready. Suitable for enjoying hot or cold beverages.
About 1"×3.5" (folded). Quaff away.

Timeless design. This stove has been around for over a century and still sets the
standard for compact outdoor cooking equipment. An ultra-classic lightweight white
gasoline stove, made of solid brass, there is no design obsolescence with this neat
little stove, it just works. Weighing a mere 19 ounces, the compact design features
an aluminum lid that doubles as a small cooking pot, this stove is ideal for single
ventures or when volume and weight must be kept at a minimum. The integrated
4 0z. fuel tank is self pressurized, requiring no pump. This single burner will boil a
quart of water in about 7 minutes, with a full fuel tank providing up to 50 minutes of
burn time. Weighs 19 oz. 3.9"×5.1".
This is an ultra-efficient all-in-one design combining cooking vessel and burner in
one compact system. Transfers about twice the heat output of conventional camping
stove-and-pot combinations—so your minestrone, chowder, coffee or ramen will boil
faster on less fuel. The 1 L mug shaped cooking cup is wrapped in an insulating cozy
and features a unique color-changing heat indicator to signal when the contents are
hot. Add the optional Pot Support/Stand and Coffee Press that stow securely inside
the unit for added versatility. A built-in piezo electric igniter and heat exchanger
brings water to a boil in minutes. Space-saving design allows everything to nest
inside the cup for convenient storage.

Convenience Vs. Mess? Getting gas on your hands stinks, and conventional remotetank liquid fuel stoves are notorious for creating a fuel spraying mess when hooking-up
and priming them. Not this one. The Soto Muka Stove was the winner of the 2011
Backpacker Magazine Editors’ Choice Award because the tank goes off and on with no
mess or spill. This non-priming dual fuel stove provides consistent all-weather performance without leaked pools of fuel or the dirty soot and hassle associated with preheating the stove before lighting. A unique fuel delivery system foregoes the typically
messy needle valves, instead using a grooved brass drum to deliver a precise mixture
of atomized gas and air to the burner. Pump up the pressure in the proprietary widemouthed fuel bottle (sold separately) until the red pressure indicator button pops up
and it is ready to light. A single control dial operates ignition, adjusts heat control,
extinguishes the flame, and clears the fuel line to prevent dribbling gas when detaching the stove from the pump. Neat. Really. Boils a liter of water in about 4.5 minutes
burning either white gas or unleaded. Packs up small for easy portability. Includes
hose, pump, maintenance tool and carrying case.
Stove #4153 $148.00
700ml Fuel Bottle #4154 $18.00

reveal a sturdy pot support
and a precision flame
control knob. Ideal for
extended touring, rallies, picnics or even a
quick roadside spot of
tea. Weighs 55 oz. and
burns up to 1.5 hours
on a scant 12 oz. of fuel.

The pot and mugs are made of a proprietary anodized aluminum alloy that is as
strong and light as titanium, yet conduct heat better and more evenly. Plus, they’re
anodized to create a surface that withstands scratches and abrasions like nothing else and are easy to clean. A convenient folding handle on the pot locks into
place for cooking and secures entire set for transport. The crushproof Lexan® lid
features an integrated strainer/steam escape that prevents accidental high heat
deformation of your pot/lid. The seam sealed stuff sack holds the entire System

Stainless Thermos
An exclusive and unique vacuum manufacturing process pioneered
by Nissan made the world’s first all-stainless thermal bottles possible more than fifteen years ago. Today only Nissan Bottles are
assembled in a patented vacuum chamber. It’s an exclusive process that yields a better internal vacuum. That plus Nissan’s tighter
manufacturing tolerances make these thermal containers the
benchmark. Skip the cheap look-alikes. Hours after filling one, you’ll
appreciate the difference.
At restaurant stops, have your server fill it with fresh hot
coffee or ice cold lemonade. Later at your motel, a wayside
stop, or a late night campfire…enjoy. A quarter-turn of the
removable stopper allows no-drip pouring. You’ll want it along
on every ride and use it for other activities too. Unmatched
thermal performance. Truly the most civilized way to carry
frozen margaritas through Death Valley to remote desert
campsites. Performance: Hot water at 203° F will be 163° F
after 6 hours and 116° F after 24 hours in a room at 68° F.

places, take drink, and keep clean. They

lid includes a gel pack that can
be frozen to keep any drink properly chilled, while the bottle also
accommodates a canned beverage
to act as a portable micro cooler. The drinking lid converts the bottle into a
handy travel mug too. Neat. A lightweight enthusiasts dream, the bottle weights
a scant 5.7 oz. (without lid) and the titanium material ensures the flavor purity
of your beverage of choice. Whether you’re toting whiskey, hot chocolate, or
both, raise your Titanium Vacuum Bottle in the air and boldly toast the good life.

ultraviolet light to kill 99.9% of all harmful organisms. If the water is especially murky, we suggest
filtering it first—unless you like drinking brown

Dr. Bronner’s
Peppermint Soap
With a bracing, deep-cleaning peppermint aroma and a claimed variety of uses including shaving, massages, clothes cleaning, and toothbrushing, this is one versatile soapy
substance that will do just about all
the cleaning required when on the
road. (Don’t know about that toothbrushing bit though-let us know.)
Also features an amazingly wordy
and somewhat strange label that
could double for reading material if
you are trapped in your tent (or the
can) during a downpour. Dr. Bronner’s
soap is super-mild, environmental,
biodegradable, safe to use in rivers
and streams, …and leaves whatever
you wash (you, your clothes, etc…)
clean and fresh.

An ingenious hygienic solution for travelers. Pocket Soap consists of fifty paper thin,
single serving sheets of pure dry soap. Just add water and the leaves dissolve completely for use as body wash, shampoo, or for dish and clothes washing. Use one or two,
and the rest stay dry, so there’s no need to contend with the soapy mess of traditional
bars of soap. Comes efficiently stored in a plastic case that’s about the same size as
those mini hotel bars of soap. Ideal for travel, but will come in handy on weekend excursions so leave one in your tank bag. Fragrance-free. 1.75"×2.75"×.75", .5 oz.
#2066 $5.00
Caffeinated Soap
We tried this stuff and felt refreshed and
alert afterwards. The idea behind this soap
is that the infused peppermint and caffeine absorb into your skin,
leaving you zippy as a squirrel
after use. The jury is
out on whether the
caffeine, peppermint or both do the
trick, but whatever it
is, it works. Buy some
for your favorite caffeine junky or
a.m. curmudgeon you’re taking that road trip with. A perfect pick-me-up
for groggy mornings on the road after late night tomfoolery. All natural & smells
nice without the usual poisons, perfumes or chemicals. Sold individually. 4.5 oz.

Non-Deet Insect Repellent
After swarms of mosquitoes & flying pests play
an irritating little game of chicken with you,
THEN they bite you! Keep the little devils off
your face, neck, and head instead of running
around willy-nilly and swatting at the air like a
crazy person. Or smearing yourself with smelly,
greasy concoctions of poisons. All nets fit easily
over a hat—even wide brimmed ones (hats
shown are not included).
A concentrated blend of herbal plant

An uncommon European design (…actually made in Asia) allows this clipper to be
folded totally flat. Admittedly, such spacesaving rectilinear cleverness is no big deal
in a tool this small, but you’ll still
enjoy the classic precision and
feel of this nicer shape. Made
super-sharp to accurately clip,
too. The incorporated diamondtype file and cuticle tool also work better than those truckstop cheapies. In a pinch these also
double as a wire stripper or 1⁄8" flat tip screwdriver. Stainless steel. 2"×.5" Includes a pleather
storage sleeve.

Micro Hair Dryer
Packing a full 1600 watts of hairdrying power, this tiny unit folds up
and features 2 speeds and the ability
to operate on 120 or 240 volts. A very
nice storage pouch is included. Not the
sort of thing a lot of people would think
of bringing along, but if you feel the need
to do hair maintenance and look presentable, this is the thing. Provided there is
someplace to plug it in, of course. Folded
size: 4.5"×4".

Featherweight Mirror
A high-tech descendant of the soldier’s
mirror that has hung from countless trees
and other perches around the world. However,
unlike the stainless steel mirrors of The Big
Ones (1&2) this one is made of strong unbreakable acrylic that gives a razor-sharp, accurate reflection of your visage unlike the somewhat dreamy quality of the old ones. Instead of splintering trees, you’re
more likely to prop this mirror in front of where the missing mirror used to be mounted in the gas station restroom or in the campground
shower. The enhanced clarity may not be as romantic, but makes shaving easier.
2.75"×4.25" and weighs half an ounce. Isn’t it nice to not have that dang stubble grinding under your helmet strap?

Motorcycle Camping
Made Easy
Inflatable Snake
Ostensibly designed to keep dung-producing birds
off the docks where yachtsmen park their fancy
boats, but we were intrigued by the potential for tent/sleeping bag mayhem involving
reptile-averse members of the riding fraternity. Liven up that rally campsite and
maybe get yourself punched. Great
fun. Measures an alarming 6' long.

Camping with the Corps
of Engineers
A no-nonsense primer on heading out on the scoot
to camp. Valuable tips and practical techniques will
point you in the right direction if you are interested
in going to bike rally events or perhaps heading out
on your own for a bit of remote solitude. Real-life
issues like assessing your current bike for load-carrying ability and space, packing what you’ll need,
camp skill basics like starting a fire and cooking, as
well as info on finding motorcycle-friendly campsites, along with all the rest you’ll
want to know. A good book for anyone with questions about saddling up and
heading out for multi-day adventures. By Bob Woofter. Second Edition. Softbound,
7"×8.5", 256 pp., b/w illus.
A little-known fact (to us, anyway) is that our U.S. Army
Engineers have these rather nice campgrounds scattered
around the country and they’re not all that expensive as
it turns out. (Our tax dollars at work?) Anyway, this book
will show you state-by-state where these campgrounds
are located and directions for getting to them, what amenities they offer, and what the costs are for staying. This
guide is a useful addition when planning trips and may
get you into locations that you did not know existed. A
quick scan of the book seems to indicate that a lot of these are located near Corps
projects such as dams, rivers, and reservoirs, so go catch a big catfish or something. By Spurgeon L. Hinkle, U.S.M.C. Ret. Softbound, 5.5"×8.5", 244 pp., b/w illus.

MicroFiber Towel Tech
Microfiber towels are softer, thinner and more absorbent than
conventional towels. They use an ultrafine fiber that’s woven like
no other textile. Each square inch of a microfiber towel contains
about 90,000 microfibers that are a blend of 80% polyester
and 20% polyamide. These fibers provide tremendous absorbency…up to 7 times the fabric’s weight in moisture…yet they
dry quickly. In addition to having a luxurious texture and fast
drying ability, these towels are chemical free, lint free, non-abrasive, and hypoallergenic. When used dry, microfiber is perfect
for polishing. Dampened with water they are great for cleaning
any washable surface. They’ll leave even the smoothest surfaces
(eyeglasses, CDs etc…) lint and streak free. They pack in a third
of the volume of normal towels, which is perfect for any trip.

Truck Stop cafe
Salmonella Detector
Saves four or five long days in a cheap motel room sweating and
weakly drinking occasional sips of Gatorade for the electrolytes. And
endless sleeping. Feverish. Sweating. Then more weakly drinking
Pedialight or Pediasure for the nutritional stuff. And more sleeping.
More sweating. Hours on the toilet. Microwaving a package of instant
Chicken soup. More sleeping. Repeat for another two days. Then showering, dressing
and unexpectedly pooping yourself again because you are still not better yet. More
Gatorade and Pedialight. More sleeping. Why suffer?
