How an Android Gadget Makes Your Backpacking Trip More Fun?

Getting a water thermos, sleeping bag, some food and a good backpack to put them all inside and start the trip. It is spring after all and a good opportunity to walk into the nature and discover some fun.

Beside all the above equipment, you might also need a flashlight, receiving radio set, watch, compass, map and some other tools. These instruments are really useful in trips. But the troubles just start here; insufficient backpack space and lifting these many objects for a long distance walking. These things may turn the sweetness of the trip into bitterness.

Well, not if we had a multi-tool all-in-one space saving gadget like the Swiss knife which has all the handy tools like: spoon, fork, can opener, etc. Swiss knife is really a cool stuff, but it does not have the entire necessary instruments we need in a trip, like flashlight, map, radio receiver, compass, etc. What could we do then? Should we deny taking all those necessary stuff with us? Or is there a workaround to this? Well actually there IS a workaround to this and there is a Swiss knife for those of kinds of things and that's what we recommend to you:

If You Want to Catch an Iguana Do Not Grab It By the Tail

How to Catch an Iguana

"Hurry, come and help us."

"What happened?"

"There's an animal."

"What animal? Where?"

We plunged headlong towards my sister-in-law's room. She stood by the foot of her bed staring at the night table in front of her.

"What is it?"

"It's an Iguana. A big one."

"Where is it?"

"Under the night table. Look, there's the tail."

It sure was. A loop of striped green and black tail extended from under the side of the night table. I figured about an 18-inch long beastie was hiding at the end of it. I reached down, grabbed the tail as close to the front as I could. Then I learned an important lesson.

If you want to catch an Iguana do not grab it by the tail.

The Green Iguana

The Green Iguana (Iguana iguana rhinolopha) has a habitat range from the southern regions of the USA south through most of Central and South America down to Brazil and Paraguay. They also inhabit many of the Caribbean Islands. Green Iguanas are easily identified by their green to dull brown colored body with a black and green or brown striped tail which extends roughly twice the length of its main body. There are spines along their back extending from the top of the head above the nose down to the length of the tail. Great climbers and fast runners, they have five long, slender toes on each foot with sharp, curved nails which can sink into wood and plastic or grip rough surfaces. If you are deeply scratched by one, heavy bleeding and an infection are almost imminent. Their short, sharp teeth can deliver a painful bite.

Gifts for Guys: Don't Even Think About Flowers and Chocolates

Girls and guys are totally opposite when it comes to gifts and surprises. I mean, you will make yourself a laughing stock if you give a flower bouquet or a chocolate basket to your boyfriend. You can give him an expensive perfume or a branded watch; but how many times? He will get bored and your gifts will no longer please him. It does not mean that you stop celebrating his birthday or job promotion.

It is not easy to find gifts for guys, but one thing will make this process less annoying. Every guy has his own mania; he may be passionate about high tech gadgets, life thrilling adventures, travelling to exotic places, etc. You just to need to know what your guy is crazy about or what inspires him.

Electronic markets are bombarded with new technologies many times a year. You will always find new versions of tablets, smartphones, eBook readers or gaming consoles whenever you visit an electronic store. If your boyfriend or husband is tech savvy, then to find a gift for him is as easy as getting footwear for yourself.
