VIDEO: Moab Trip and the Best of Groupon (Outdoors!)

I am slowly recapping my GoPro video montages of my previous trips (Yep, a little behind!).  So today's post is a pairing.  Shopping and a movie.  First, the recap of my Moab 2016 trip, camping along Potash Road, hiking Corona Arch and Mill Creek Canyon, and mountain biking Navajo Rocks and Lower Merrimack and Monitor

Followed by a little shopping. 

While I have more outdoor gear than I am willing to admit, there is no such thing as too much, right? I mean yes you have the bike but what about the bike cover for storing your bike outside?  Or a portable hammock for your next camping trip? While I usually use Groupon for activities, I recently started browsing their selection of outdoor and adventure gear. I was pleasantly surprised to see they have everything from tents to close, and even big name brands like Mountain Hardware. While I haven't purchased any of these items yet, these were the fun and useful items I found on Groupon that had good ratings, and a great price. 

I just about fell off my chair when I saw the foldable washbag for camping and traveling. Why didn't I think to crate this awesome portable mini washing machine for trips? Am I the only one who saw this, thought it was genius and decided they have to have it? Or the bike cover... GENIUS for keeping my bike clean and out of the rain on my deck, or locked to a tree on a camping trip.
