Ranger Review: Ice Mule Cooler at Crossroads Travel Park

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!

Ranger Review: OOFOS Shoes at Cordele KOA

Ranger Review: OOFOS shoes at Cordele KOA Journey

Campground Review:

Right off I75 in Georgia sits a small KOA with TONS of amenities! Being just a block off the interstate I assumed it would be noisy. But all the trees make a great sound barrier and we had a nice quiet weekend and will definitely be back!

This campground accommodates Campers, with spaces up to 90 foot long! (up to 50 amp), Tents, and even offers Cabin Rental! Has a pool, propane fill station, firewood to purchase, laundry room and updated bathhouse. a dog area, wifi and even offers cable, for the people who like to camp inside šŸ˜‰

Our weekend cost was about $70 for out tent site, there were a few people staying in a camper long term who mentioned they do offer reduced rates. I didnā€™t get to check on the cabins, but they look super cute from the outside and run $50 a night if you book online.

Nearby attractions (we did not visit) include Lake Blackshear, a manmade lake, with a really cool dam, and Georgia Veterans State Park on one side. They have a marina and beach. And The Andersonville National Historic Site the location of a Confederate prison where 13,000 Union soldiers died.

 

Product review: OOFOS SHOE

As a Dyrt Ranger I was privileged to get a major discount on an awesome pair of OOFOS shoes.

I'm telling you now, this is the most comfortable thing I've ever put on my feet! It's like walking on pillows every step you take! I have arthritis in both my knees and have been having some trouble lately. The day my shoes got here I was eager to try them on, and once I did, they didnt come off the rest of the night! They help with the pain of walking, and my knees havent hurt in a week. I'm in love!

They're made of a really squishy, super lightweight foam. And have a breathable mesh top. I ordered the light gray color, and love the tiny pop of lime green in the logo and little tag to help pull them on. I was hesitant when I seen they had no laces and the rubber strap on top was fixed. But i had no problems getting them on, the mesh is stretchy and my foot slid right in!

My only complaint is that small rocks get stuck in the bottom of the shoe, in the middle tread. But, they're easy to pop out.

They also offer flip flops too, so that will be my next purchase. OOFOS will be my go to shoes from now on!

Wow

We pulled in, and pulled right back out. They advertise low rates and it was right off the interstate so we figured we would stop for the night. Nope. This place is sketchy as all can be. It had a fee campers parked, a couple really old run down units up on blocks like they were permanent campers/living there. Even a person staying inside a cargo trailer. Lots of trash all around every site, it was 1 road in, and 1 road out. we seen 1 dumper for the whole campground. Definitely a small place. And maybe, had it not been night time, I could have talked to someone and checked it out. But we just didnt feel safe.

Private even though it's right off the interstate

Absolutely love Fair harbor! The staff is great, they have a little store that sells amenities and lots of basic camping gear. Have 24 hour laundry, multiple showers with amazing water pressure, and multi stall and private bath houses including handicap access. A private [stocked] lake that toured welcome to fish, without needing a license. They have lots of permanent campers here, who pay their lot rent and have their own electric meter. In a standard RV site all amenities are included, water hookup, sewer, electric with 110, 30 and 50 amp hookups, cable and wifi! As well as little cabins for rent. Also horse stables and storage if you stay longer!

Peace in the city

This campground is just across the river from East Park, a very large part in Mason city. The river flows through the park and there are several, maybe 5 playgrounds in the park. The campground is also next door to the city pool.

Camping in town

This camp ground is smack dab in the middle of town. But once you're inside the campground surrounded by others it's hard to tell. You do hear quite a bit of traffic but depending on where your site is, you may not see it. I was disappointed when after years and years we were told we can no longer have a tent on your site with your camper. We would have to have our family members camp in a different part of the park.

Peaceful and quiet

Loved Kent park for camping. They currently have their lake drained. Estimated to be filled some time summer 2019, unknown If they will stock fish. There are so many camp sites it's nice to not have rowdy neighbors right on top of you. The park is huge and you could easily get lost. Only downfall is the gates are locked at 10pm so if you needed to come or go, you're stuck.

Amazing lake

I absolutely loved this state park. There is so many options for fishing and camping. They even have cabin rentals for the more glamping lifestyle. They do book up quick in advance, but there is usually walk up spots available the week of too. Definitely reccomend.
