Campground Review: Right off I75, about 45 minutes south of Macon, is a small campground with lots of energy. We stayed here short term while in between moving in our 5th wheel and it was a great time. They offer lots of discounts, and extended stay rates. I think we paid $480 for a full month, which included the lot rent, water, sewer, and power.
The spaces are a little small, and a little tough to fit 2 vehicles in, but everyone was friendly and we made it work. They have both pull thru and back in sites, easy access to all of them. Easy in and out, it looks as if they have a few full time campers there as well. Both 30 and 50 amp were available, and they were all paved, so leveling out was super easy.
They have a pull up station for late nite check in after the office closes and works on an honor system to put your payment in the drop box.
One of the perks I liked is the pool, its available for campers and their guests, kept very clean, and was never crowded when we visited.
They do have a shower house and facilities available if needed as well, we however did not use these. [I was told they needed some updating, but again did not personally use them]
Product review: IceMule Pro in XLarge [33L] As a Ranger for TheDyrt I get to review some really cool products that I get free or can purchase at a discounted price. This time we got an amazing deal on a backpack cooler! OMG amazing! We absolutely love this cooler. It has now become our go-to anytime were going outdoors.
We decided on the IceMule Pro in XL as we needed to keep 3 days of food cooled while our fridge was being repaired. These coolers come in a variety of sizes, this specific model comes in 23, 33, and 40 Liters. There is a few different styles of coolers available too: Classic, Pro, Boss, Jaunt, Urbano, and Traveler. The classic is simple and had 1 clip on Carry strap, the traveler is more of a duffle bag style, but we wanted a backpack style and went with the Pro, all the other options are backpack straps.
We selected the grey color, something neutral that wouldn't draw a lot of heat to the bag. They offer a few variations of color for each style of bag.
This cooler is lightweight, and comfy! Once we added in all our items and clip the straps into place you could wear it for hours.
I really like the rolling top closure, it's super easy to snap the clasp to keep it shut, and easy to open when you need in. The cooler has an air vent on the side as well to add in or remove unwanted air from the bag. This helps regulate the temperature inside the bag. When I first got the bag I wanted to try it out and ee didnt have ice at first but put stuff in it anyway. A few hours later after we got ice, the drinks were still cold! This to me was amazing! Once we added ice, it stayed sold for over 2 days. Even with us being in and out getting drinks and food.
We have already decided to get a 2nd smaller one to use for tailgating this fall!
