New Heated Add-On puts the WIN in winter!

Soccer games. Football games. Tailgating. Cold-weather camping, fishing, and hunting. Winter driving. What do they all have in common? COLD BUNS. You know the feeling. Although your camp chairs are nice and portable, they don’t have much in the way of insulation. Fishing and kayaking are great year-round sports, but freezing water rushing beneath your backside is uncomfortable at best. Didn’t preheat your car before heading to work in 20°? Unless you have heated seats, your teeth will be chattering.

The Boys of Fall

I love this time of year.  School is back in session and the kids are excited looking forward to a new school year.  Well, perhaps there are those few who are dreading it.  Doesn’t summer vacation always seem so short!  But, I’m sure that they are looking forward to the upcoming fall sports activities.  I know it’s not “officially” the fall season, but it has always been my mindset that when school starts, it is.  And all across the country, the fall season is synonymous with F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L.

Most high schools have already had their first few football games of the season. We’re definitely looking forward to this coming Friday’s game!  Sometimes, I think it is the parents who look forward to those Friday night high school football games.  It reminds us of simpler days when we were younger. We were looking forward to Fridays when we could hang out with our friends and go to the varsity football game.  These days, we look forward to it because we’re proud of our kids.  If you have a son who plays football, I am sure you are very proud of him.  If you have a daughter or son who is a cheerleader, I am sure you are cheering along with them.  We are their biggest fans!  We see the team practice out on the field at least four days a week.  We can hear the coaches pump up our boys.  We see the cheerleaders perfecting their pyramid and the “fliers” fly higher to show off their skills.  (Competitive cheerleading is a big sport in the cities where I have lived).  The kids love their sports.  They want to make us proud.  They want to make their hometown proud.  We get the team pumped up when we fill their high school football stadium and cheer them on.

I sometimes watch football practices and cheerleading practices.  I enjoy hearing the sounds around me — the school band, the kids, and the nature.  I bring my bottled water, a snack, and my Chaheati™ chair.  It’s a perfect item to have especially for this time of year.  The Chaheati™ is a cordless, lightweight, collapsible, heated chair you can take anywhere.  Its rechargeable heating system has four settings and provides up to six hours of heat.  It is also water resistant.  It’s great!  Don’t have one yet… Don’t let me stop you grab one www.Chaheati.com/store

I love fall.  It is beautiful for all it has to offer — the weather gets cooler, the leaves start changing its colors (depending in which part of the country you live), the early sunset, a new school year, fall sports, and the upcoming holidays.

I am looking forward to our own hometown Friday Night Lights, cheering on our Boys of Fall and keeping warm in my Chaheati™ chair.

Why You Should Create a Camping Checklist

Are you interested in going on a camping adventure or Beach Adventure?  Whether you would like to go camping alone, with a group of your friends, with your family, or with your romantic partner, you will need to bring multiple pieces of camping equipment with you, as well as other camping supplies.  Unfortunately, many campers realizes, often too late into their adventure, that they didn’t bring everything that they wanted to or needed to bring.  To prevent yourself from becoming one of those campers, you may want to think about creating a camping checklist for yourself, as there are a number of benefits to doing so.

One of the many benefits of creating a adventure checklist for yourself is that you are less likely to forget to bring important pieces of equipment like a Chaheati Chair or other needed camping or beach supplies.  Unfortunately, when it comes to camping, many individuals often wish to bring something, but when it comes down to remembering that is a different story.  To help you remember everything that you want and need to bring, you will want to make sure that you create a adventure checklist for yourself.  Remember to add anything that you can think of as more items cross your mind.

A benefit to creating an adventure checklist for yourself is that it makes it easy to go shopping for all of your supplies. In addition to forgetting to pack something important, many people draw a blank once they get to the store a camping checklist will help you make sure to remember everything you need.

What you will want to do is sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and start writing. You will want to think of everything that you will need to go camping or spending a day at the beach.  One of the best ways to create a camping checklist for yourself is to go through your daily activities. For instance, you will need a camping tent and a sleeping bag to sleep.  You are going to need somewhere to sit as well, so you know bring that Chaheati chair. When it comes to your food, you may want to add a cooler, hamburger meat, ketchup, mustard, rolls and so forth to your checklist.

Of course, creating a camping checklist for is something that is completely optional, but it may help to make your next adventure a memorable and a pleasant one. With camping or adventure checklists being easy to create, why wouldn’t you at least want to give making one a chance?  You may actually be surprised just how much a simple checklist helps to improve your next adventure.

Should You Buy or Rent Your Camping Gear

Are you planning on taking a camping trip in the near future?  If this is your first time going camping, you will need to get camping gear to take with you, as you may not already own it.  While your first impulse may be to head on down to your local sports store and run up the credit card, did you know that you have another option as well?  You do.  In addition to buying your own camping gear, you may also be able to rent it.

When it comes to determining whether you should buy your own camping gear or just rent the camping gear that you need, you may have a difficult time deciding what to do.  If you are wondering what you should do, you will want to continue reading on.  Below, the pros and cons of both buying your own camping gear and renting your camping gear are outlined.

As for buying your own camping gear, you will find that the biggest con or downside to doing so is the cost.  Depending on what you need to buy, it can get pretty expensive to purchase your own camping gear with the exception of the Chaheati.  It’s an all season chair so you can use it anytime of the year and not just with camping.  With that in mind though, there are a number of camping gear equipment pieces, like camping tents or sleeping bags, that can be purchased for affordable prices.  If you are looking to camp on a budget, you can still buy your own camping gear, but you just need to know where to look.  Some great places to find used gear is thrift shops.  You can often find cooking gear and pretty decent backpacks in good condition.  However when you do buy try to buy gear that you can not only use for camping but also for sporting events like youth soccer, track or other outdoor activities.

Although there are a number of downsides, like the price, to buying your own camping gear, you will also find that there are a number of pros or plus sides to doing so as well. One of those plus sides is the fact that you will own the camping gear in question. This means that you can use it as little or as often as you would like.  If you are planning to take a number of camping trips in the future, you will find that it is easier, as well as cheaper in the long run, to buy your own camping gear.

It is also important to mention the freedom that you have, when buying your own camping gear. When buying your own camping gear, you can buy basically whatever you want. For instance, if you would like a camping tent that is the color black, you are free to do so.  When you buy your own camping gear, you have the ability to be picky if you want to be.  With a large selection of camping gear pieces to choose from, from a number of different retailers, the decision as to what you want to buy is yours to make.

If you are unable to buy your own camping gear or if you would prefer not you, your other option is to rent your camping gear.  When it comes to renting camping gear, you will also find a number of pros and cons. As for the cons of renting your camping gear, you may find that you are faced with a limited selection of camping gear pieces to choose from.  Many camping gear rental stations only carry the basic items, like tents, hot plates, and coolers.  While you may have some choices, you will mostly find that your selection is limited.  Also keep in mind that if you rent the investment you make in the rental will never go toward you earning your own equipment.

As for the pros or plus sides to renting your camping gear, instead of buying it, you will find that the cost is much more affordable. Despite being relatively affordable, different camping gear rental stations charge different rental fees.  You will also find that camping gear can typically be rented for as little as one day or as long as a couple of weeks. Renting your camping gear is nice if this is your first time going camping and if you are unsure as to whether or not you would be interested in doing so again.

As you can see, there are a number of pros and cons to both buying your own camping gear and renting it.  In addition to the two above mentioned options, you may also want to think about borrowing camping gear from someone that you know.  You may even be able to do so free of charge.
