Travel Equipment/Gear We Actually Use!
– The DJI Spark is the most affordable, fully feature drone currently available on the market. At a price point of roughly $549 USD ($699 CAD) you really can’t go wrong with this high-end drone product.
Spark is easy to fly, making it a great option for both beginner and advanced users.
This mini drone has all the fancy features you’d expect in more expensive technology. The camera takes amazing pictures and stabilized 1080 30fps video. It is equipped with everything from return to home auto landing, palm launch/land, automated flight path features, orbiting designated targets, and much more!
The best thing about this drone is that it’s very portable and weighs less than 1 lbs, making it a great option for mobile professionals and world travelers such as vanlife goers or backpackers. The Fly More Combo comes with a convenient shoulder bag to house all your drone equipment together, making for easy transport on hikes. It can easy be packed into a decently sized backpack or carried along side in its shoulder bag.
If you are trying to start off in the drone space, the Spark is by far the best drone for you. If already familiar with drones and looking for something that can do 4k video, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is the best option. This DJI drone is priced at roughly 3 times more than the Spark, offering even better features such as a 3-axis stabilization gimbal.
We are super excited about the Spark and its intuitive features leave us with a user friendly device supporting many unique control options. The Spark was a great option for us because of its many protective accessories and comprehensive product warranty.
DJI is the most recognized and respected brand for drones. With affordable accidental crash coverage and fast delivery, you can’t really go wrong purchasing DJI products other than the Spark. For other awesome DJI products. Click Here
This is the perfect travel backpack for us, hands down. Priced at $159.95 USD ($219.99 CAD) it is great for a weekend getaway in the city or the wilderness. The Farpoint 40 has a few key features that you just simply cannot get in other backpacks.
It is not a top loader, and instead has a suitcase-style zipper for loading and unloading your main compartment. This, accompanied by the internal compression straps, allow you to keep things organized and easy removal of items near the bottom of your bag. The laptop/tablet sleeve is lockable in a secure, separate compartment.
The Osprey Farpoint 40 was deigned to fit as a carry-on, on most airlines worldwide. A unique feature is the option to stowaway the backpack
straps, harness, or hip belt in a hidden zippered backpanel. When in use like this, the padded handles allow you to carry your bag as a suitcase, adding to easier transport.
As a 40-liter sized backpack, it can fit everything you need for long term travel while also distributing weight evenly from harness to hipbelt. We find this the perfect sized bag for those traveling as a couple. If each of you have one of these, you are set. It might not be as durable as some others if you are looking for something to use on intense mountain hikes, but it will get the job done.
We have previously used it for back country hikes and camping in the past. This was one of our best bags during our 20km, week long canoe trip in Algonquin. We highly recommend this backpack.
All Of Our Campervan Stuff!
We really did not want to start our campervan adventure without a full oven. We love to cook it has become one of our passions and we did not want to give that up living in a van. This product fit all of our needs.
This oven is simply amazing for any RV/Campervan setup. It works on solely propane. This means you do not need electricity for a spark plug starter or a complex gas set up. Just get a propane tank and plug it in. The front burner is a bit stronger and can cook things very quickly while the back 2 are a bit more for everyday use. The entire top grate can come off for easy cleaning which makes this super convenient as we all know water is a valuable resource when living in a van.
