i bought this awning thing (stock photo below) right before my trip to moab & colorado, and it vastly exceeded my expectations. it's kind of a must for desert camping, and also it's nice to hang out under it when it's raining. it also takes less than 2 minutes to set up and take down (faster than a standalone canopy), and it's easily adjustable to account for sun angle or wind or whatever. plenty of room to set up a camp kitchen at one end and still have room for a few chairs underneath the awning. what sent it over the top is there is a dimmable LED strip for cooking & cleaning up in the dark, or just to have a soft nightlight.

i got the 6.5' long one but they also make one that is 8' long. both options extend 8' out from the vehicle.

mounting is kind of up to you. i got the quick release hooks and attached them to my cross bars with hose clamps from o'reilly

It's a few years after the fad, but I bought a fidget spinner a few months ago and play with it all the time at work while reading or on a call or just thinking about something. It's like relaxing and focusing.  :thumbs:

A few years ago, I got this Kelty tarp for making shade at the beach but the anchors that came with it didn't hold in a sandy substrate. Got these new anchors that screw into wet sand off of Amazon and we enjoyed the crap out of the tarp at the beach this year.

Sort of like this but I just used two poles:

I'm looking to replace my electric razor. Currently have a Braun series 3 but it got dropped and the pop up trimmer snapped off. Thinking about just going back with the current series 3 shaver. Are there any (foil-type) electric razors that would be a big upgrade (in terms of shave quality, not price) that gE posters would recommend?
Went with the new series 3 model. Started using shave gel with the electric razor. I'm enjoying the crap out of it.

Whats the point of using an electric then?
I have a series 7 that I'm either going to need to buy a new head or just get a new one. Costco had the series 8 like $50 off a couple weeks ago and I regret not grabbing it.

Personally, I get much less razor burn with an electric vs a cartridge razor. Much cheaper than buying razor cartridges over the life of an electric. I have to replace the disposable razors pretty frequently or I get bad razor burn.

Schick Quattro and a shower mirror. Much better shave. Maybe $20 a year in blades.

Yep.  If you’re not shaving in the shower, you’re doing it wrong.

I use a handheld anti-fog mirror. Fortunately, I can still focus within a foot of my face

Got a link to the mirror?  That might be crazy enough to work.

Something like this. I've had it for nearly twenty years. So not exact model. I cannot use it mounted in my current shower as it mounts too high for my current vision.

Just smear a little soap on the shower mirror to prevent fogging.
