• Trio of new travel gadgets for the perfect camping trip

    2009-12-30

    When the pressures of the real world become too much, many people choose to return to nature to clear their hearts and minds. Of course, some people find it difficult to detach from the conveniences of the modern world and for them there are several technological options to keep connected while roughing it.

    For campers who love to hike but have a poor sense of direction, there is the Casio Pathfinder watch. The lightweight wristwatch does so much more than just provide directions, though. In addition to more typical functions like a compass, the solar-powered Pathfinder sports an altimeter, thermometer, barometer, auto-setting atomic clock, tide graph, depth gauge and dive log.

    Keeping in touch with one's loved ones is important, and campers embarking across rough terrain might be interested in the Pelican Micro Case, a waterproof and crushproof case that also features a purge valve in the off chance that one drops their Blackberry in a river.

    Of course bringing a cell phone means recharging the battery, and what better way to keep a smartphone going than with the Dynamo wind-up cell phone charger, a hand-operated, battery-free charger that will keep a phone running for as long as one can turn a crank.
