Trailer hitch hammock (aka the bumper thumper)

Over the last year, I’ve featured a couple trailer hitch inventions that totally rock. The trailer hitch stripper pole (a personal fav), tv stand, and who could forget last week’s bumper dumper – all creature comforts of home we like to take with us on the road.

Well I have found the mother of all trailer hitch inventions. How about Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand?

I mean, can you say ultimate tailgating party equipment to enhance your leisure and comfort?

And this hammock system is built to last. It’s made from durable steel and will hold 250 pounds on each arm. It attaches to any 2-inch standard hitch receiver and its 3-piece installation assembles in only minutes. Add a couple Ultimate Hanging Air Chairs (as featured in the picture) and BAM, you are set to swing on the back of your truck for hours.

OMG can you say MUST HAVE! I can picture hubby and I using it at all kinds of tailgating events this year. We are planning on hitting a few outdoor concerts. What better place to max and relax in our dual trailer hitch hammock system than in the parking lot awaiting entrance to the concert.

Or what about backing the truck up to the bank of a lake and casting a pole while swinging gently in the wind. Oh yes – my kind of fishing!

Or if a camp party gets a little stuffy, I’ll be able to just sneak outside and lounge around in my hammock chair. Get some air. Relax. Best yet, let’s say I get a little too drunk. I’d be able to take a nap and hubby could just hop in, drive us home and toss a blanket over me. Tada. Comfort AND convenience.

Or how about using this at work during those gorgeous summer days!!! Happens all the time where I am at work, all stressed out and even more PISSED because there I sit at my computer for hours watching the gorgeous summer day pass me by. Well no more. Now I can park the truck, whip up my trailer hitch hammock and give new meaning to the words break time and lunch! I can totally picture myself catching some rays. Shoot, maybe the wireless would reach and I could actually work from my hammock chair?!?!? You know, a happy employee means a productive employee.

Heck, I bet I could even RENT out the chairs at work while I am not using them and recoup the initial purchase cost and then some. Genius. I’ll make a fortune. I’ll be a hit, a superstar, everyone’s BFF! This little venture will put hubby’s Fry and Ride venture idea to shame!

And…the BEST part…with a little privacy the entire thing could be converted to one HELL of a bumper thumper. Oh yeah – put your minds directly IN the gutter with me friends! What FUN! Naked. Outdoors. Swinging. Squeee! I am in like flin! And I am sure with a few hints about all the “adult” swing fun and frolicking we could have; hubby will whip out his credit card for this one. We’ll be “just a swinging” in no time.

Where would you use the trailer hitch hammock system? Come on…share the wealth…

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

Road trip life saver

So you know how sometimes you go on long road trips? Say for a shopping trip or maybe to see a NASCAR race or perhaps a cross-country camping trip? Hubby and I have done quite a number of these types of road trips in our 8 years together. Just to name a few, there were 2 trips to Bar Habor, a 7-8 hour drive, and a trip to New Hampshire to see the NASCAR Loudon race, another 7 hour drive. We love road trips. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of the road in front of you and the adventure sure to follow. The sights to see. The fun to experience.

Well…all except for the potential bathroom nightmares.

There’s nothing worse than heading out on a long road trip and being between gas station exits when nature calls in a hurry. I had one such incident when a bagel did not seem to agree with me. Luckily we were able to get to a dingy old gas/pizza parlor in time. As I rushed in, I noted that the bathroom was right next to the pizza counter (ugh…heart dropping but no choice…) and hadn’t seen a “real” cleaning in quite some time. Unfortunately for me, beggars can’t be choosers and I was out of options and time.

And even more unfortunate…for the gas/pizza attendant…the flush decided at this most inopportune time to….break. I pity to the guy who had to come unclog that flush. If he’s reading, I am so sorry! Let me tell you, I came flying out of that little store at MOC 22 screaming START THE CAR!!! Kind of like this…

 

Embarrassing and humiliating but what else can a gal do when nature calls? Or as in my case, nature SCREAMS!

Or what about those times when you can’t wait for the next exit because you gotta go NOW. I know firsthand the joy of having other drivers watch as I made a mad dash, legs semi crossed careening half crazed into the woods, roll of toilet paper or a few napkins in hand. Not cool!

Well…I worry no more. Thanks to the Bumper Dumper! A trailer hitch mounted portable toilet (y’all know how I love trailer hit mounted stuff).

That’s right, now I can take my flush with me where ever I go. All I have to do is pull into a secluded spot, plug the bumper dumper into my trailer hitch, and let er’ fly. And for those more “open” areas, I can just fire up the privacy screen and let my feet dangle while enjoying the comforts of home on the road.

Best yet, I have the choice between a sealable bucket or bag. Gotta luv options!

For only $69.99 (plus shipping) you to can have this level of creature comfort for your road trips. Just visit the website to order yours. 

Oh…and don’t forget to order the optional toilet paper holder for added convenience and comfort; it’s only $9.99.

What are some of your funniest or most embarrassing road trip stories? Come on…share the wealth!
