Now you can rent a vintage teardrop camper for a weekend in the woods

If you’re not ready to buy a teardrop trailer of your own, now you can spend the weekend cozied up inside one thanks to Camp Weathered . Based out of Marin County, California, the teardrop camper rental service offers a fleet of vintage teardrop campers for those looking for a private and cozy escape in the California wilderness. Camp Weathered’s “Forest Cottage” campers offer all of the basics for a comfy camping trip, including a sleeping space big enough for two adults and one small child. The campers also come with a small galley kitchenette with a sink, a two-burner camping stove, and plenty of dishes and cookware. The rental service even provides a picnic basket stocked with everything needed for a romantic candlelit dinner. Related: How this photographer escaped the grid with her tiny Teardrop Trailer There are two ways to rent the campers: you can either tow one yourself to your desired location, or the service will tow one for you and then pick it up. The lightweight trailers can be towed by almost any vehicle – even a motorcycle. Camp Weathered was started by two students, Alex McNeil and Jesse Bodony, who decided to launch the rental service after seeing how popular their own camper was among their friends and family. According to McNeil, the service is geared to those who want to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life: “So many of us feel kind of assaulted or barraged just by our connectivity, and the nonstop pace of reality that we deal with,” he said. “I really do believe that being in nature, especially for folks who aren’t often is one of the most restorative and valuable experiences you can have.” + Camp Weathered Images via Camp Weathered

Comments Off on DIY Cardboard Arcade by 9-Year Old Inspires Flashmob and Film

This imaginative cardboard arcade is the awesome creation of nine year old Caine Monroy. After spending his summer vacation in his dad’s used auto parts store building a fun-filled series of elaborate games from cardboard , Caine opened up the arcade to the passers-by of his Los Angeles neighborhood. Like a regular games hall, Caine offered special deals – $1 for two turns, and $2 for a five-hundred turn ‘Fun Pass’. But even with deals like that business was slow, and Caine’s chances of getting a rush of customers were small. Until one day, independent filmmaker Nirvan Mullick stumbled on the arcade while looking for a car-part, and this chance meeting changed the success of the arcade, and the story, forever.

Comments Off on New Study Reveals that Environmental Impact of Electric Cars Depends on Location

Although nothing comes out the tailpipe, electric vehicles do produce carbon emissions and other pollutants; the amount of emissions all depends on the power source from which they are charged. A new study from the Union of Concerned Scientists looks at how good or bad EVs in different parts of the US perform in terms of carbon emissions based in differences in how electricity is generated. The report found that location matters a great deal; in some parts of the country where electricity is generated mostly from coal, EVs performed no better than gasoline-powered hybrids.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Inhabitat Tries Out Ikea’s Solar-Powered Sunnan Lamp

Comments Off on PRODUCT REVIEW: Inhabitat Tries Out Ikea’s Solar-Powered Sunnan Lamp

When Ikea came out with its SUNNAN solar-powered desk lamp , we were immediately enamored with the elegant, minimal design, but were curious about how much light the product could actually deliver when charged in an (often not-so-sunny) city apartment. So we got our hands on one of these lightweight LED lamps to test out, and were, for the most part, pleasantly surprised. Aside from costing just $19.99, the affordable desklamp is “Buy One Give One” – for every one you purchase, IKEA and UNICEF give one to a child in a refugee camp or village with no electricity.
