This 12 volt RV motion light illuminates those areas around your RV for safety and security. Helps to prevent accidental slips, falls, and theft by giving you light where you want it, when you need it.” To us this is very important!

Ray Burr of says:

We are currently out boondocking in the Nevada Desert and I really love these new LED bulbs. It’s amazing how much longer the battery bank is lasting between charges. I also got a chance to check out the new LED marker lamps in the dark and man do they look great. Nice and bright, while drawing 1/5 the DC amperage versus the old type bulb.”

The Truth about Dog and Cat Treatments and Anomalies” by veterinarian Dr. Robert Ridgway-

This resource for common pet ailments is also a comprehensive guide on how to treat these conditions with a combination of over-the-counter drugs as well as simple home remedies. It includes carefully crafted dosage charts that tell owners exactly how much to give their pets based on weight and the recommended length of treatment.
“Safe home-treatments are not widely known,” Ridgeway said. “This book doesn’t use professional medical language. I meant it for public use and it is very easy to read.”
While the guide primarily focuses on tackling health problems, it can also help one improve pet behavior, warn of the dangers of common household substances that can harm your furry family member and helps weigh complicated and sensitive issues involved with end-of-life care and decision-making. A perfect book to have in the camper when travelling with pets.

These all look like some great resources! The gopicnic products look delicious and practical. How do you think they stack up when compared to preparing similar packages on your own via buying more in bulk?

It would be hard to put together such a nutritionally balanced meal of such high-quality manufacturers for the same cost as a GoPicnic meal. What we like about GoPicnic is that there are balanced levels of proteins, carbohydrates and fiber to curb cravings and keep you fuller longer. Each meal includes a protein, fruit, whole grains and sweet treat for all under 400 calories.
