Finally, a firepit that won’t blow smoke in your face


Editor’s note: This campaign was fully funded and the product is now in production. You can purchase it here.

It’s a common camper’s trouble: It takes forever to get a fire going and once you do, you can’t even get comfortable around it when it starts blowing smoke in your face. Worst case scenario, the smoke follows you and sends you shuffling around the campfire to find a temporary blind spot until the smoke tries to find you again. Instead of (literally) working around the campfire, Biolite is looking to cut out the smoke altogether.

Biolite has had your back on camping supplies before with a portable stove that charges your devices, and now they have a new Kickstarter to stoke their flames. The Biolite FirePit is a wood-burning device that creates an awesome campfire and dilutes all of the smoke, leaving only the warmth and glow of a cozy fire to share with your camping pals.  Read more…

The best subscription boxes on the internet, covering everything from food and booze to entertainment


If you ever listen to podcasts (and don’t skip the ads), you’ve heard about the magic of subscription boxes. I’m a big fan — not only do they make life so much easier and more convenient, they also merge the excitement of getting a package in the mail with the joy of opening a gift. That’s double the fun, y’all. 

We’ve rounded up our favorite subscription box services from food, to wine, to makeup, to clothes, to razors — because you deserve the best of the best. There are too many in each of those categories to try out yourself (seriously, have you browsed Cratejoy before?), so we’ve pulled out the boxes where you’ll get the most stuff for the best value.  Read more…
