Taking Ownership of Your Off-Road Experience

People who own ATV and off-road vehicles often take great care to make sure that their buggies and cars remain in great shape. They replace parts, fix broken components, and upgrade their vehicles at will. When you buy components like UTV parts and exterior accessories online, it is important for you to let the company from which you purchased these items know about your buyer experience. You can give feedback on how these items performed and if they lived up to your expectations. In this respect, you take ownership of your off-roading fun and could also impact the design and release of UTV-related products in the future.

Easy to Use Contact Forms

It used to be that you had to write a letter to the company from which you made your purchases. You had to assume that someone at the company got your letter and actually gave it the attention it was due. Today, however, consumers like you can fill out an online form to let the company know about your customer satisfaction. The form is easily submitted online so that the company gets immediate feedback from you.

The form is also a valid way of asking questions or voicing concerns. When you lack the time to call or write a letter, you can log onto the website and complete the form within a matter of minutes. If you want someone from the company to call you, you can include your phone number. You can also include your email address if you prefer to communicate in this way.

This form of communication makes it easier for the company to reach out to you and to also get feedback from its clientele. Many companies rely on emails and online contact forms to gauge their performance in the market. You can take ownership of your own consumer choices and your off-road fun by taking the time to give the business your opinion on its products.

Shopping Online

Along with filling out the form, you are invited to shop online as well. You can search for components using the links on the left side of the page.

You can shop by manufacturer and brand. You can also shop by the make and model of your vehicle.

Companies rely on feedback provided by their customers. The online form for this feedback can be found on the off-road company’s website.

The Kitchen on the Move

A kitchen in the food industry can be a complicated network of moving items shuffling to and from various locations, and at times it can seem that kitchen as home are much the same way. There is always something that needs to be moved from one counter to the other, food transferred to a different pan, and so on. The list of reasons to want an easier way to move the big appliances in the kitchen are nearly endless, and a good deal of the things in the kitchen are much too heavy to move without some form of assistance.

Wheeling Around

Thankfully there are food service casters that people can purchase to attach to those difficult-to-move items. There are a great deal of different types of casters, for nearly any occasion, that can be attached. Some of these focus more on the look of the caster, whereas others on the functionality with features like bumpers and wheel locks. For instance, Access Casters Inc. has three different categories: the standard caster, the industry caster, and the components.

A Few Uses

There is always a time when the space in the kitchen just isn’t setup properly for the task at hand. Perhaps it is right before the holidays and a lot of baking needs to be done, but all of the counter space is too split up for anything to be done without a lot of useless movement. Of course, that situation is easily solved with these delightful casters (wheels) on the bottoms of the counters. All of the counters can be wheeled together to create an easy and fun baking workstation.

However, that’s not even mentioning the fact that moving all the appliances and big furniture in the kitchen can be a real pain in the back when everything needs to be cleaned. After a long day of throwing ingredients into a pan, mixing bowl, and back and forth between counters, there is bound to be some scrap of food left stuck in-between or behind the appliances, which is where the casters pop in. Moving the kitchen around to do a deep clean is a simple task when those heavy items can be pushed or pulled out of the way.

At the end of the day, the casters will have enabled a person to redesign the kitchen on a whim to fit their current needs and allowed them to clean in places that might otherwise go unnoticed.

BFRO Pictures

My contact at the BFRO is a real fanatic when it comes to chasing big foot. He spends all of his spare time in the pursuit of evidence that will prove this mythical creature to be real. The first time he visited me, he showed me extremely impressive pictures of footprints, trail cam and night vision video which was very convincing.

The picture below is one of a trail of thirty tracks that were recently found in this area. The print was about fourteen inches long and six inches wide. Small compared to the nineteen inch monster that we found recently but impressive nevertheless. The most convincing aspect is the clearly defined toe prints. Also impressive is the obvious depth of the track. The composition of the gravel surface is nearly identical to that where our nineteen inch track was found. The weight of this animal would have had to been in the eight hundred to one thousand pound range at a minimum.

Photobucket

The most fascinating picture that he showed me was one that I can’t share with you because the individual who took the picture on a trail cam has not agreed to release it yet for public consumption. The picture appeared to be the chin and nose of a sasquatch. Apparently, the creature had ripped the trail cam from the tree and accidentally photographed a portion of its face before discarding the camera and moving on. My BFRO contact is currently trying to get the picture released for public viewing. If that happens I will certainly post a copy of it here.

6 Tips for Choosing a Boat Lift

If you’re in the market for a boat lift, it can be difficult to choose between all the brands and products clamoring for your attention. How do you know which one is the right one? Here are just a few ideas for picking a boat lift.

1. Determine Your Specs

How big do you need your boat lift to be? How much weight should it be able to support? You’ll need to go over your watercraft with a notepad and measuring tools to figure out exactly how long, wide, dense and heavy your boat lift should be. Exact numbers are key.

2. Know Your Water Type

If you’re docking in salt water, you’ll probably want your boat lift to be made of stainless steel so that it doesn’t rust, erode or encourage damage to the vessel itself. On the other hand, if you’re relaxing in salt water, aluminum boat lifts might be more your style.

3. Think About Manual Versus Electric

There are some people who will tell you that only manual or only electric lifts are worth buying, but the truth is that everyone’s needs are different, and what works for you may not work for your neighbor. Do your own research to determine if manual or electric best suits your needs.

4. Have a Budget

How much can you afford to spend on a boat lift? Keep in mind that the listed price of the product won’t be the final expense you incur. You’ll also need to pay for things like delivery, insurance, installation and general upkeep, so remember these numbers when working out your price range.

5. Read Manufacturer Reviews

This is the easiest way to get the gauge of a company. What do previous customers have to say about them? If their reviews are universally positive, they’re probably worth checking out; if their reviews are uniformly terrible, you might want to keep on looking.

6. Look at the Warranty

Boat lifts can’t be returned to the store like an unwanted sweater. It takes a lot more time, energy and money, sometimes more than a return is worth, so make sure you’re buying a good product before you swipe your credit card. Get it right the first time.

These are just a few tips for finding and selecting a boat lift. As you can see, there are many different factors to consider, so don’t be afraid to take your time and really think about your purchase before you make a commitment to any brand in particular.

How To Update Your Child’s Bedroom As They Grow

It’s inevitable that your child will outgrow their current bedroom design. Decorating is not a task you can do once, then forget about. You will probably do this many times before they move out. It’s important to realise that it is their room and it should reflect them. This is the place where they are going to work most of this growing up stuff out. So it needs to be right. Here is a how-to guide to give you some pointers on how best to update your child’s bedroom as they grow up.

Choosing a theme for a child’s bedroom can be a risky task. Your child’s tastes will always change. The cartoon they like today may be old news tomorrow. When decorating it may be wise to choose a more neutral theme. If your daughter likes princesses, why not opt for a flower garden theme. You can tell them it’s a princess’ garden instead of choosing a Disney princess theme. So when they get older and move onto the next craze, it will still be a pretty feminine design. You need to find a balance between pleasing them and keeping their room versatile. It’s the same with the boys. Instead of choosing their favourite sports team why not go for a space or rocket theme.

If choosing a theme seems like hard work, you can always just use colour. Neutral colours will last much longer than statement colours. You can keep the walls neutral and add colour through picture frames and cushions instead. These are inexpensive accessories that can be easily replaced, as and when your child’s tastes change.

Every child needs a quiet place where they can do their homework or study. This is a task they will continually do for their entire school life, so you need to accommodate it. Desks always make a great addition to a child’s room. If you don’t have enough space for a homework station, look at changing their bed. Would a cabin bed be more beneficial? Would it make their room more functional? Creating additional space is always a bonus in children’s rooms. A simple way of updating their room is simply by rearranging the layout.

As well as a homework station, this additional space could also provide room for a hangout area. This can be a relaxing spot where they can sit and talk with their friends. Just add some bean bags or oversized cushions to make it extra cosy. Fombag has some wonderfully affordable options and they are a Lovesac competitor. Sofabeds and Futons may also be good investment pieces for when your children start to have frequent sleepovers.

Buy top quality storage furniture that is built to last. Go for whites or neutral tones that will compliment any colour scheme or chosen theme. Keep in mind that your child’s clothes will obviously get bigger in size and will require more room. If you don’t consider the future when buying such items, you will find yourself having to replace them more often.

By following this guide, you should now know how to proceed with updating your child’s room. Each child is different and will require different things. Make it as functional as possible and you shouldn’t have too much difficulty.
