So you, your spouse or partner, and another partner go to the big game where everyone should have a good time. Everyone got up early to pack all the necessities and place them in their sport utility vehicle or truck. Your friends have their awkward barbecue grill strapped to the bed of their two-seater truck to effectively withstand Category Five hurricane force winds. The grill is equipped with a large steel chain and a padlock to prevent theft while everyone enjoys the game. They also brought a large cooler that could hold enough drinks for all the team and coaching staff, their lawn chairs, and a host of other routine paraphernalia, most of which also have a separate lock and steel chain combination. . You and yours are equally loaded into your SUV, except maybe for the grill. You meet others at a predetermined location at a certain time and are ready to hit the road, when suddenly there is a delay because someone has to stop and refuel. Now it’s finally time to hit the road for the two-hour drive to the stadium. At about thirty minutes into the journey, you are trying to relax from all the preparations and delays; you wish you could all be together to chat and have a good time on the road, but there is too much for one vehicle. You also hope that you don’t get separated in traffic because when you get to the stadium you will want to be able to park next to each other.
Wait a minute; Suddenly you realize that this is supposed to be fun and relaxation with friends! You realize that when you get to the stadium, unpack, eat, repack, watch the game, and drive back, the fun factor is dropping considerably. The only time you can spend with your friends is at the stadium.
Why not use compact, portable products that fold, close, and store in a much smaller space? Now all friends can ride in a car and have fun on the go. The SUV or truck will no longer be a requirement for game day; Let’s face it, the car will probably get better gas mileage anyway!
Some good ideas might include a compact, foldable, portable picnic table that seats four, a gas grill and cooler combo pack that keeps drinks cold and stores the grill, an insulated picnic basket for perishable foods, four folding stadium seats with storage pockets and carrying straps, and an insulated tote bag for condiments, paper plates, etc.
Now we are talking about a FUN trip with friends, less stuff, less hassle and everything can be transported and stored in a space of about seven or eight cubic feet, like the trunk of a car.
Let’s go Team!
