Weekly Resource Highlight | Roadtrippers

Roadtrippers-treesThis week we want to introduce you to a favorite trip planning resource. This resource is a fantastic app you will fall in love with.  This app and website are so valuable when traveling the United States. Plan out your destination and find awesome excursions, good eats and more along the way and at your vacation spot. Roadtrippers is even beneficial if you are looking for something to do around where you live.

I have used this tool to find waterfalls, restaurants and more. Roadtrippers is easy to use and satisfying in the way it provides information. Each thing it finds for you is packed with pictures, hours of operation, reviews and more. Here are a few pros and cons of this service.

Cons

Not every establishment is found on it and thus it leaves things out still.

Roadtrippers is newer and thus reviews/votes are not as full, look other places to compare reviews on activities, dinners and stays.

Trip planning isn’t the easiest, but it has improved over time, or I’ve gotten better at it.

Roadtrippers is only United States based for now.

Pros

Roadtrippers has both Apple and Android Apps.

Many activities, food locations and hotel locations are found on the tool.

Roadtrippers is a comprehensive tool, it includes many more features than typical travel resources.

You can connect navigation apps to it easily.

Roadtrippers has both apps and an active website.

Their blog is “on point”

The suggestion: Try the app for a trip and comment below how it helped or worked out!

Travel Gear You Should Have

Add a little bit of body textOur weekly Tuesday post will focus in on great gear you can buy online! We’ll focus in on a variety of items that may help travel or you may like to have along the way.

VicTsing Bluetooth Outdoor Speaker – $20.99 and it’s on sale! 

What others are saying

“Brilliant is my best way to describe this speaker, you can take it anywhere without worrying about water, dirt, snow etc.”

“Setting it up took me about 20 seconds and didn’t have to read the manual.”

Poweradd 14W Foldable, Portable Solar Panel Charger – $49.99

What others are saying

“This solar panel would be ideal for outdoor use by campers and anyone who needed to charge a phone, iPad, or a USB rechargeable battery, GPS or flashlight. This product is great for emergencies when you lose power.”

“It worked VERY well on a camping trip to Joshua Tree. While others were crowding around a gasoline-powered generator to recharge their phones, I recharged for free. It took about 4 hours of almost direct sunlight to recharge a Samsung Note 3 with a BIG battery.”

Allen Sports Aluminum Folding 2-Bike Rack – $50.06

What others are saying

“I guess my opinion is obvious. I have had a lot of bike racks over the years and this may be the last one I will have to get. It is compact, it is easy to put on and take off, and it holds the bikes securely. Everything that I could ask for.”

“Is this for the person that drives all over and bikes constantly, I would say no. Get a true rooftop carrier. But for the weekend rider that does not want a rack always attached this folding design, light weight and ability to handle two bikes makes it a winner.”

Gerber Warrant Knife – 24.89

What others are saying

“This knife came hair shaving sharp out of the box and no problems with it whatsoever. The sheath is very high quality, and comes with a leg strap as well.”

“it totally surprised me, good size, love the tanto style and full tang construction. the sheath was a surprise and love the leg attachment option. would deff recommend this blade for the price.”
