How do you handle bad weather when fishing in the middle of nowhere?

Outdoor trips are always conditioned by rough weather and fishing ones even more. Though on a light rain you might have more chances at catching fish, as they are drawn towards the surface, you wouldn’t like being caught out during a rough storm. However, anything can be handled if you have the right equipment with you. Though I mostly practice surf fishing, I always include a lifejacket in my gear, as well as waterproof pieces of clothing. I keep my gear light especially when I go in places where I need to leave my car at a certain distance from the fishing place, to make sure I can pack it rapidly and that I can carry it with ease until I reach the safe space of my car.

Even so, going fishing on bad weather poses certain risks for fishermen. The best way to prevent accidents from happening is to own a quality emergency weather alert radio that is able to keep you in touch with significant weather changes happening in your area. That is possible due to the fact that these radios are not regular radios, they intercept NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather alerts using SAME codes that are specific for each county and you can find online. This way, when a weather alerts is transmitted, you can use the emergency radio to receive it. Therefore, if a storm is likely to happen, you will be announced in good time and thus find shelter before the storm arrives. In addition, the alert offers input on the estimated duration of the natural hazard, the regions affected and its severity, so you’ll know with precision if it’s safe to hop in your car and drive or find a safe place nearby. Besides, weather radios can double as normal radios as well and they are fitted with long-lasting batteries, so you can keep yourself entertained while waiting for the fish to bite.

Hot Tools foot spa review

The decision to acquire a foot spa machine for my personal use didn’t come unexpectedly. I was for a long time an avid client of foot spas. That was until I realized I can prepare most of the treatments they applied there by myself, in my own apartment, and save money while doing so.

My honest opinion is that there are a small number of products on the market that can dutifully satisfy all your needs. For this reason, I had chosen to thoroughly research the market offer, before settling on a product. From the beginning, I decided to go for a simple one: just the basic massage functions and a large enough space to fit my feet in it comfortably. I’ve been through a number of reviews, both expert and amateur and, even if in the end I had a quite long list of products that fitted my needs and expectations, I’ve determined after careful reflection that the Hot Tools model was the best for me. There are a few reasons that determined my final choice.

Firstly, this product was simple and was positively reviewed by users and experts altogether. Most people have reported increased satisfaction after using it and experts rated it 5 stars most of the times. When you take a closer look at the product’s functions, you can easily see why. This foot spa machine includes four main functions: it heats the water you put in and maintains it at a comfortable temperature during the bath, it has two perfectly functional massage rollers that make an awesome job at relaxing your feet after a tiring day, it vibrates and relaxes your feet using water jets and it includes a pedicure set with 3 attachments, that will come in handy if you don’t have them at home or if your pedicure set got old. The good part is that you can alternate between these functions, so you don’t have to use them all at once. However, the options provided by the product, even though simple, work perfectly, which, from what I’ve read, doesn’t happen in all cases. It’s definitely a top foot spa.

As I am into perfumed foot baths and key bath improving ingredients, I was thrilled with the aromatherapy dispenser that I can use to add fragrance or to gain more benefits from my spa. If you know how to combine the right substances, you can double the effects the spa has on your tissues and you can also escape foot problems such as cracked heels for long periods of time. Especially in the summer, when you wear sandals and you go to the beach, your feet will need to be extra cared for, so you must combine the optimal substance mix to obtain the best results.

The product is fitted with a splashguard to prevent water from spilling on the floor. The splashguard has two surfaces on which you can rest your feet, just in case the water is too hot and you don’t want to place your wet feet on the cold floor. I believe it is a great product that also comes with a satisfying price.

We love my Smittybilt 2738

I have to admit that I was never an enthusiastic camper, at least until recently. I’m not saying that I didn’t like to go camping, it’s just that I was never too disappointed if the trip was suddenly cancelled. Sleeping on the ground where who knows what could crawl into my sleeping bag is enough to give me nightmares, and even the best tent for trucks can’t make the bumpy, hard floor of a jeep feel comfortable. All of that changed when I got the Smittybilt 2738, and now I’m the one organizing all of the camping trips.

If you are like me then the thought of sleeping with whatever else is on the ground is enough to ensure that you lay awake all night. This, in my opinion does not make for a fun or relaxing camping trip. Now that I have this awesome roof top tent I have the freedom to camp almost anywhere I want without having to sleep on the ground or the back of my jeep. I should mention right away that you will need a ladder to get in and out of this tent, which also means you need to have plenty of cargo space.


This tent comes with vertical walls so there is plenty of space inside, which is also an advantage for anyone that is the least bit claustrophobic. This also ensures that you can store everything you need for the night in the tent, instead of trying to climb down the ladder in the middle of the night. You will also appreciate the mesh windows that allow plenty of fresh air to flow through, along with providing you with a great view of the night sky.


What really sold me on this tent is how easy it is to put up. I am one of those people who think that camping should be relatively easy. The aluminum poles are incredibly simply to set in place, and since the tent roof is already attached there is one less step to follow. The durable polyester material is resistant to rips and tears, and since it is also waterproof you can even stay dry without having to huddle inside your vehicle.

Thanks to the Smittybilt 2738 roof top tent I am well on my way to becoming an “experienced” camper. I can enjoy all of the advantages of “ being out under the stars”, without worrying about what might be trying to share my sleeping bag with me. If you are adamant that you will never enjoy camping then you have never tried it with this great roof top tent.
