How To Camp And Make It A Trip You’ll Never Forget


Camping is a great way to let go of stress and bad emotions. Nowadays almost everyone has a busy life. You might have children, a 9-5 job, a social life and a house. It all takes time and attention, and at the end of the day you’ re exhausted. Camping can give you a break from deadlines, school projects, social media and your daily life. It gives you the opportunity to step back a few days or weeks and do absolutely nothing or just fun activities. And let’s […]

Tow Capacity of a 2016 BMW X3 x28i and possible Coachmen Apex 15T


Morning, So I am looking for any guides, or guidance on the realistic towing capacity of my car. The internet tells me its 3500lbs.

I am open to ideas but so far I like the Coachmen Apex 15T, its very light for dry weight which makes me feel better about loading some stuff up. We are a young family of four, kids are only 3 and under 12 months so the bunks will come in handy. My cargo capacity for the car is 906 pounds, which to me seems […]

In fact, between 1.4 million and 2.1 million U.S. small businesses could close permanently as a result of the first four months of the pandemic alone.

How to Host Video Chats Inside ‘Fortnite’


Photo: Jennie Book (Shutterstock) As I often say, I’m the world’s worst Fortnite player. Unless I can catch someone standing still for an extended period of time and snipe them from an ungodly distance, I take shotguns to the face and build about as well as a three-year old. However, Fortnite is more than just running-and-gunning; there’s a big social component to the game, too, and that’s even more apparent now that you can have full-on video chats within the game itself.

I long for the day that my […]

Is a Warm Smoothie a Thing You Need?


I have never been much of a smoothie drinker. It just isn’t my vibe. I don’t like to drink my fruit (unless it’s blended into a cocktail); I like to eat my fruit, and I like to drink Diet Coke (and cocktails).

Not only do I not understand what type of person would enjoy warm smoothies, I do […]
