It is time for your February roundup. This is where we share ridiculously-priced items that our Members would love, a little bit of helpful information, and much more! So check out what we have for you this month.
Hide Some Bacon in Your Brussel Sprouts

If you are looking for a way to get a little more bacon in your diet, you might consider “the best campfire bacon brussel sprouts” recipe we found on 50campfires.com.
It calls for two pounds of fresh brussel sprouts, three to four strips of bacon, and your choice of seasoning. The one thing about this recipe we can’t quite get behind is only using three to four strips of bacon. We aren’t saying to use three to four pounds, but three to four strips seems a little light on such a key ingredient.
Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think—be sure to include how many strips of bacon you used.
Will The Camping World Ever See Something Like This?
There are a lot of new things happening in the outdoor camping world, but will anything like this ever come to be mainstream in North America?

This travel trailer was designed by a New Zealand architectural and design firm. It travels like a typical travel trailer, but conveniently folds out with a simple push of a button. The entire dwelling space rotates out and exposes a spacious and covered outdoor patio to be enjoyed.
Is this something you’d ever want? Is it full of problems waiting to happen, or could this be the future of RVing? What do you say—what features do you love? And what makes you question the legitimate future of this camper?

Is Mercedes-Benz Sold on Camping?
When we think of Mercedes in the camping world, we typically think of van conversions, or of them providing a chassis for someone else to do the heavy lifting. But Mercedes-Benz might be rethinking this strategy. Look at this prototype from Mercedes-Benz itself.

Pictured above is the 2023 Mercedes EQT. It is an all-electric minivan with a range of 175 miles. But what makes us excited is the camping element of this new, stylish minivan. It is designed to be a fully-equipped micro camper known as the Mercedes-Benz Marco Polo. It will include a state-of-the-art driving experience that would be a perfect daily driver. But it can tackle those camping trips too. It will include a kitchenette, a pop-up roof, functional storage, and room to sleep at night.

Would this be an option for your lifestyle? Is the 175-mile range enough for you? If not, how many miles would it have to go before you would consider it a legitimate option for your camping lifestyle?
What If You Never Had to Dump Your Black Tank Again?

NeverDump is a company trying to make the most unappealing part of RVing obsolete from the RVing experience. This company is innovating new technology in Hall Labs—a world renowned Edison lab with an amazing track record.
The process to eliminate waste without the unsightly experience of dumping is done in a four-stage process to cut out the waste situation as we know it. Like most amazing things in life, this mimics nature. It creates a process that can help RVers stop searching for that next dump station.
What Is the Great Green Wall?

The Great Green Wall project is underway on the African continent. It is made up of 11 different countries collaborating to bring vegetation back to the edges of the Saharan Desert—one of the largest deserts in the world. The issue they are trying to solve is the spread of the desert into nearby areas—known as desertification. This process has slowly eroded neighboring areas from the ability to grow food and provide for themselves.
But why do projects like The Great Green Wall and Greening Australia’s Outback matter to us? Well, these projects matter because our deserts in the United States are growing too. These projects could act as “aha” moments for us. We could stop the desertification of our lands, push back the desert, and retake our fertile grounds. This could especially matter as our population in the United States and around the world continues to grow.
What do you think about these endeavors? Are they realistic, and a shot worth taking? Or just a shot in the dark?
