Life on the road is free and exciting and full of new things to do and see. But, with that also comes hard work to do things that we take for granted in our regular, stay put, lives, like toilets, showers and washing machines. Gear Junkie recently put together a great list of things that will make life camping or on the road a little more comfortable. So, check out the list below that will help with sleeping, food storage, relaxing, and working.

1. Goal Zero Yeti 400 Portable Power Station. This can be charged with Solar Panels and used to power electric devices such as fridge/freezers.

2. Kelty Ardent Backpack – O.k., so the guy that recommends this, works for Kelty, but the back pack is probably pretty good. It is great for short hikes and lots of pockets for small stuff.
