[The Journal of Lost Time] Gear For A Road Trip Around British Columbia - BRITISH COLUMBIA

Essential gear for a road trip around British Columbia

Jackery Solar Generator:
We pull into our campsite after several days in the remote wilderness around the Burnie Glacier. Excited, I open my computer to begin going over the footage and photos from the last few days. A black screen stares back at me; my computer is dead. Thankfully our Jackery 1500 is fully charged, and I am able to begin charging my Macbook directly into its USB-C port while charging all of my other devices. While they charge I setup the two 100 watt SolarSaga panels to begin re-charging the Jackery and even on an overcast fall day in British Columbia I am pulling 70 watts of power from the sun and into the Jackery.

 

 

iKamper Skycamp 2.0:
It is 1:45 am and the small stream next to our remote, northwest-Vancouver Island beach campsite has risen by more than a meter. The rainstorm, which has been dropping more than 40mm of water an hour for the last 3 hours, only appears to be getting worse. We are on a rocky, elevated site, so we are not worried for our safety. But perhaps more remarkable is how dry and warm we are in our treehouse-like iKamper Skycamp 2.0 hardshell roof-top-tents.

For 3500 kilometers and 3 weeks the RTTs have been our homes; each night we pull into camp with no stress about setting up our shelter for the night. It is setup in two minutes and even in a British Columbia downpour. Further they are warm, very warm, so even on a night like this one where we cannot have a fire the walls feel nigh-impenetrable. I sleep like a baby, lulled to sleep by the constant sound of the rain hitting the hardshell.
