First Aid App

We all know that it’s important to have a first aid kit located in our truck and travel trailer. It’s a best practice to be prepared, because who knows when an accident will happen. It’s not like we plan on slipping, tripping, or not paying attention, then a injury happens.

If you’re like me you probably have your cell phone with you most places you go. If it’s a smart phone (android or iphone) there is a app that I think is worthwhile, it’s called itriage. The following video by healthagen will give you a good overview of what itriage can do.

This app could be very helpful when you are away from home and not familiar with the community you’re visiting. It can help you find medical facilities in situations where you need medical help, but it’s not necessary to dial 911. It can help you figure out if you should call 911, or visit your family doctor when you get back home. This is a great app not only for a vacation or camping trip, but while you are home too.

Do you use this app? Do you use any other app like it?

New Concept Camping

I was surfing the net looking for RV & camping information when I bumped into some cool discoveries that I thought worth sharing. On the Blue Nose RV Trails site I saw two tiny RV options. The first one didn’t seem that appealing to me, but the second one caught my attention. It’s called the Swiss Room Box. You have to see it in action to appreciate the invention & design.

They have two versions of the commercial on you tube. This one is not directed at families, but I didn’t want to post the same thing that Mike Porter from Blue Nose did.

I’d love to see this thing up close. It appears to be 4 cubes, and a couple additional pieces. You mix and match some of them to create combinations like a table, or bed. Some of the others are dedicated for the stove, shower/sink, and food storage.  Unfortunately it is not being sold outside of Europe at this time, while they figure out some electrical conversions. It’s not cheap either it cost roughly $9,000.00. These portable boxes could revolutionize how people camp. For the price you could buy a pretty nice used RV or a couple cubes that you could store easily in a closet and take in you minivan. Would you consider buying the “Room Box”?
