The water jet pack must be tethered to a personal watercraft (or jet ski in this case). It works by redirecting the jet ski's expelled water through a tube and using it to create enough pressure to take flight.

With LeafSnap, you can browse an entire library of catalogued plant species and read about them... but you can also snap a photo (hence the name "LeafSnap") and it will identify the plant for you!

3. You think this campfire was made by *conventional* means?

OK, it probably was, but don't waste your time rubbing sticks together. Products like Campfire in a Can exist that let you pack up a small, portable gas campfire to take wherever you need.

The use of LED lights in clothing is a great way to shine a little extra light on any outdoor nighttime experience. Learn how to make your own garments here.

5. Camping doesn't mean you have to go without a warm shower.

The Road Shower is a solar-powered solution to showering on the go. It provides both warm (up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit) and pressurized water!

The ICEdot Crash Sensor attaches to the back of your helmet. If you're in a crash, it uses bluetooth to connect to your smartphone in order to alert your personally defined emergency contact.

7. Use a drone to test the conditions before venturing out.

Air drones can record or stream video to your smartphone along with GPS location data. This will allow you to visually explore before entering into any potentially dangerous environments.

8. Pack a hammock and leave the tent at home.

Invest in a hammock for camping, and you'll never regret it. You won't have to waste time finding a clearing. All you need are two trees!
