Tactical Flashlight Commercial How Can One Buy

>> Court Rye: Hey guys.
I’m traveling through Southern California
and I wanted to give you
some insight, persepective
into car camping in a Prius.
Some Walmarts let you camp
out in the parking lot.
I’ve got a lot of friends that I’ve made,
especially now through the website
who say sure you can park in my driveway
and a lot of them offer,
yeah sleep on the couch, go for it.
But what I found is,
sometimes their houses are sort of messy
and maybe they have cats or dogs,
I’m a little sensitive to cats especially
and it’s not the same
privacy that I was used to
and just this sense of peace
that I was looking for.
So enough about that.
I bought a forerunner
and it was like a four cylinder,
it had like a timing chain
and so I was really thinking like,
this thing’s bulletproof, it’s awesome
and it can go anywhere,
you know if I’m driving
and I get stuck in the snow or whatever
it can just go anywhere with this thing
but what I found was that the
gas mileage wasn’t super great
and it just wasn’t comfortable.
There’s a lot of bouncing
in my neck and back
especially working at the
computer sitting a lot,
I just, it just didn’t work.
So after a year of doing that
I’d saved up enough money
that I bought a Prius.
Now not only does this reflect my values
of sustainability and efficiency
but I mean you just get
awesome gas mileage.
Right, you don’t have to stop
as frequently at gas stations.
I was constantly worried
on these long trips
like there aren’t a lot of gas stations
in some of these places
and some of the ones I pass,
you know I would think to myself
do I really wanna get gas there?
You know is that really the best place
and so I was struggling to
balance those two things.
With the Prius, I’m saving time
and yes I could’ve got a Toyota Echo
or a Yaris or any other car
but this car in particular
has the hatchback.
So the seats fold down
and there’s enough space
that you actually can car camp.
I ended up finding a really
good deal on this one.
Used, has a solar panel built into the top
and so it runs the fans
when I’m not in the car
and that’s awesome ’cause it does get hot.
Right now it’s a little cold.
Again you can see the snow and stuff.
It’s the middle of the day, it’s like noon
and it’s decent out
but it was below freezing last night
and I could actually sleep
in here and do alright
’cause I have a couple of
sleeping bags, down comforter
and the really cool thing about a Prius
is that you can just let
the car run all night,
run, right the engine starts,
it charges the battery
and then it stops
and then the battery runs
basically air conditioning
or your heater
and I’ve done that all night before
and it used less than one gallon of gas.
That’s like three dollars.
It’s a like a three
dollar hotel right there
if you’ve got a driveway to park in.
Or you’re just in BLM land like this.
Be careful, don’t get stuck.
This is a two wheel
drive car and the tires,
you know they don’t have
super great tread or anything,
they’re not real deep.
They’re meant to be really
efficient so they have high PSI.
And as you can see
I’ve got a bike rack here
on the back that folds up
and it actually stays pretty well
within the airstream of the car
so I don’t lose a lot of MPGs on that
but when I go review bikes
I can put ’em on my car and drive around.
And you might notice this Adopt sticker
and you might’ve noticed Jack
up here in the passenger seat before.
That is not a real dog.
That’s just something
I got ’cause I thought,
hey you know it’s kinda fun,
it keeps me company a little bit
and if I’m parking somewhere at night
and you know someone sees the car,
I feel like it might be a
deterrent against break-ins
or just messing around.
A lot of people think it’s real
and again it’s like, I have dogs
and it’s just kinda company.
Little bit of company.
But if i need, I can take
out just these few things.
I can totally scoot the seat back
and take a passenger with me.
Same thing in the back.
Right now everything is laid
down as low as it can be
so that I can see out the back for safety.
And I’m all about safety.
This car does have a back up camera.
Some of the trim on this one was upgraded
and again I just happened
to get a good deal on it,
used I bought it in Texas.
It’s a darker color, it’s a hybrid
and I think in Texas
there just isn’t as much demand for this
so I got a good deal on it
but again I saved up cash,
I could make an offer.
You could buy a Prius like this.
This is a 2011.
You could probably get one of
these with higher miles on it
and it probably in the
seven or 8,000 dollar range
and there you go,
that’s like practically a home
and if you can save 1,000 bucks
a month on rent or something
and just use the library
or a Starbucks or a Panera Bread
or something to do your work,
this can save you a lot of money
and it’s really not that uncomfortable.
So I was just super excited
to share how I’ve set it up.
So let’s jump back in here real quick.
We’ve got this wagon tech cooler
and it actually has a
built in electric cooler
so it keeps the contents in here
at a much lower temperature
than the rest of the car
and it just runs off a nine volt
which I’ve got plugged in,
in that center console there.
I can keep my yogurt, I got some hummus,
some of these microwaveable Amy’s meals
and because it opens at the top like this,
when you open it,
the cold air doesn’t escape
’cause hot air rises.
So this is awesome.
I love this around it I got
some granola and some stuff.
I bought these you know,
husky liners down here
’cause you know, I’m on
the sand and dirty areas,
sometimes it gets dirty.
You can see the outside of the car,
I like to keep the inside
as clean as possible.
Notice that I’ve got plenty
of room here around this vent.
This is to cool the hybrid batteries.
So you don’t wanna cover that.
So what I end up doing when
I’m actually driving like this
is I leave that down here, I
plug it in and it cools off.
There’s an on and off switches down here.
It can actually heat stuff too.
But then once I’m ready
to do the bed set up,
I’ll grab one of these
extra pillows over here.
This, lay it right there on top.
I’ve seen a bunch of people
make these great hanging things
and boards and I’ve even bought
like a custom-made cut-out board
with these stilts and stuff
just that cooler plus a pillow is enough.
You know, sometimes it’s like,
better to have simple, flexible solutions
than these over-engineered
precision solutions.
And you save money that way too.
So I’ve got this folding,
like cot mattress next.
So what I’m gonna do is fold it up,
there we go like that.
And down.
And I gotta just push it.
Little hard to do with one hand,
there we go, awesome.
And then I’ve got this
waterproof mattress cover.
Like that.
And then just a regular sheet.
So you can see, you know with two hands
I could get that figured
out a little bit nicer.
Got my sleeping bag right here.
Like that.
Grab my pillow, put it right here
and then look at that, I mean.
The other thing is I would take this out
so kinda pop this up.
Now it’s completely out of the way
and I’ve got my, my nice sleeping bag here
with good padding and this
one it’s not super wide,
it’s 25 inches so it doesn’t collide
with the wheel well there on the left
and then I bought this,
it’s not a sleeping bag,
it’s just a blanket.
I really like this thing.
Trying to remember what
it’s called real quick here.
This blanket is reversible
and a lot of times what I’ll do is,
it gives me a little bit of extra warmth
but I use it to cover up my head.
‘Cause it’s really lightweight
and I don’t like wearing those masks
’cause they just,
when you roll around
they get bumped around.
But a lot of times
when you’re in Walmart
parking lot or something,
it’s pretty bright, there’s
sort of a light outside
which feels safe but then
you can’t sleep as well.
So this blanket,
I’ll just lay this over
my eyes a little bit
and kinda camouflage myself
a little bit more like that
so I might look like
this under the covers.
This is actually the
top of my standing desk
and it is awesome so I’m
gonna show you that next.
Here’s the base.
And you’ll notice that I’ve
got it set up in such a way
that if I get in a car accident,
it’s not gonna come flying
through and decapitate me.
Or knock me out or something.
I put it down like this,
then I take this top part like this.
And look at that.
I can set this on any desk
at like a friends house
or even at a library
and now I can use kind of stand up desk
and I much prefer that to sitting down,
just let’s me relax my
arms a little bit more,
it’s more ergonomic,
I have a special platform that sits on it,
a DJ stand basically
and I have my laptop
and it’s just, it’s wonderful.
I have room for my mouse,
room for my keyboard.
But again when I’m driving
I keep it out of the way.
I wanted to give you the full impression
of what the standing desk looks like.
So here it is completely set up.
There’s that DJ stand I was talking about.
Got my laptop, ergonomic keyboard,
adjustable height, this is really the key
and then just a kind of standard
cheap table from Walmart
that goes completely flat
and most importantly, this
little comfort stand here
’cause when you’re
standing for a long time
it can get, you know your
feet and your knees and stuff.
Got a few things laying over there,
it’s just an Airbnb you know,
it’s really nice to be able
to lay the foam mattress out a little bit.
This is actually a fold out couch
but it’s less comfortable
’cause you kinda sink it,
it’s just uneven and stuff
and that’s all the space I take,
very clean, tidy, gives me
a chance to do my laundry
and most importantly,
use high speed internet.
So sometimes this is really
the best way to do it
and then I’m not intruding
too much on my friends.
But you know, thanks
again for all those people
who have let me hang out a little bit.
Here’s a quick look at my food.
Got that cereal again,
some nuts or berries,
some fruits, fruits are great,
quinoa, much healthier
than rice, great protein.
A little bit of organic
protein powder over here.
And some oranges and fruity stuff.
In the fridge, got the
yogurt, bunch of spinach,
celery is an awesome snack,
dip it in hummus
and then I frequently
make a big thing of beans
and do almond milk and then
I’m able to make burritos
and stuff like that
without going out to
fast food all the time.
Another fun snack is just
some healthy popcorn.
(chuckles) So, yeah that’s
how I keep it, you know,
affordable but healthy.
I don’t wanna gain a
whole bunch of weight,
be breaking out from
eating greasy fast food,
I’m just not a fan of that model
so I know this is a bit off topic
but I think eating and having foods
that are more non-perishable
which tend to be more
like vegetables and stuff
it’s good and it’s important
for when you’re traveling
and you’re already exposing yourself
maybe to not the best
sleeping pattern every night
and things like that.
Over here on the left you can see I’ve got
my just a basic suitcase,
got some extra files,
some extra shoes
and then down here I have a whole bunch
of just kinda safety gear.
So here’s a look at the extra storage.
Got a hat, don’t wanna get skin cancer,
some of these reusable
bags for sustainability.
This is a fold out solar panel
which can charge phones
and things like that.
I got bottles, hats, rain coats.
I even got like a, kind of
a jumper thing right here
so that if my car battery dies
when I’m far away from
other people I can do that.
Got some knee stuff,
some extra cables,
hiking poles, first aid,
one of those hand crank lights.
Just a ton of stuff,
bungee cords,
extra long cables, jumper cables,
pocket mask if you need to do CPR,
goggles, this is from Burning Man,
while back.
And umbrellas and then this.
Yeah I’ve got an inverter here
and I’m actually wired in directly
for my Prius battery over here.
I might show that ’cause it
allows you to pull more watts
and not mess up the circuitry on your car.
So yeah, let’s move to that.
OK I got the cargo tray out
and you can see my spare tire.
Got some big time duct tape,
also some binoculars over
here, those could be useful
and then candle and mirror
and you know, just that
survival camping stuff.
Now this is what I think
is really interesting.
Forget this, cover off,
you can see the Prius battery,
it’s actually I the trunk
instead of under the hood
and so that can be kinda
confusing sometimes.
Of course there’s the big hybrid battery
but that’s really separate
and the starter battery
is actually kinda small.
So they go out, they seem
to go out more frequently
than on some other cars.
In any case,
under here you can see
that I tapped into the
positive and negative prongs
and then I’ve run some
of my own cable up here
with the connection point.
So I can actually connect
to that with my solar panel
and charge my car battery
or I can run one of those inverters
so I can get 120 volts
out and run a power tool
or run my cooler or really just anything.
Another choice accessory
is this thing right here.
That is a dash cam
and I’ve actually taped
over the LEDs a little bit
’cause I don’t like them in my eyes
and I’ve kind of wired it
in and run everything down.
See I’ve got the plugs all set up there
and then bunch of plugs here
I really like that they’ve got
several outlets on this car.
Anyway, this thing records all the time
and it just kinda loops
and I can press this
button to mark sections.
Basically, if there is an accident,
if something happens then
I’ll have video evidence
and I’ll be able to move
through the court system better
or defend myself in court
so it’s maybe worth thinking about.
There’s a bunch of dash cam options
about one in the front, one in the back,
also some security devices in the car
so I’ll get like a text message
if someone’s messing with my car
and just a regular alarm.
I don’t have too many
valuable things in here
and I’m often close to
my car or sleeping in it
but it’s just kinda nice to
have that level of security
if you’re treating this more like a home.
I also have this nice little mat
that covers the dash so
it won’t crack over time
and it’s nice to just,
you know put stuff up here.
Oh and these, did you see these?
These things really make it nice
to put your arm down on the door
’cause this is actually kinda hard.
Like there are parts of the
car that are a little bit,
you know maybe not quite as nice.
And then I love this little holder here.
I put my cell phone right there,
I can still do everything,
it stays out of the way
but I use that to navigate
’cause I’m constantly
relying on GPS when I travel
and I can charge it and everything.
If you’re gonna camp,
you might as well make
this an awesome set up
and one of the ways I’ve done this
is I’ve got this head rest holder.
It’s very adjustable,
it can swivel in and out
and I’ve got my iPad there.
So I can sit here or take a passenger.
I will probably put that away
if I had a passenger though
and I can enjoy a movie.
I can actually put my laptop there
and look at the screen
and just hang out here.
Again, in a parking lot,
at my friend’s house,
I can catch up on stuff,
I can even do email.
It’s a pretty nice set up
and there is enough room down here,
I’ve got my little goody
bag with some granola bars.
Right now I have some
extra bags and stuff,
this isn’t usually like this
and I’ve got another bracket
here that I can attach.
I can actually lay down over here
and then have my iPad right above me
and just lay down and watch
the screen while I’m chilling,
while I’m chilling out.
That’s really awesome.
Another quick call out,
I got a range extender
’cause a lot of times
I’ll go to people’s houses
and I can plug that in
and extend the range
out to my car or into a
spare bedroom or something.
So I just wanted to call that out.
This is like my little entertainment area.
You really don’t have to
get a gigantic trailer or RV
to enjoy yourself
and being able to have a gym membership
like 24 hour fitness or whatever,
travel all over the country,
I can shower, I can shave there,
I can enjoy myself.
I don’t need to take that with me,
I don’t need to have a bathroom with me
and using this car means I can park
in really any parking spot anywhere.
I can go into parking garages,
I don’t have to worry about
going through drive throughs
and breaking something off.
Even with the bike on the back,
I’m not going to go into a garage
and accidentally decapitate my car.
Those are all considerations
that went into this purchase.
Yes you give some things up
and you know I’ve had to move
a few things here to clear out that seat
but there’s plenty of room there
the bed is almost completely open still
so it’s very doable.
Okay so here I am in the car.
Kind of all the way in.
Just wanted to give you some idea
of what it looks like.
‘Course the trunk’s open
and actually sell a really
cool Prius tent thing
that just sort of hangs
down if it’s hot out.
Of course, as I said before
it’s been really cold lately
and so this is good for me.
I know I can stretch,
I’m five-nine.
I can get to the front seat if I need to
you know if the car’s running
I’m actually using it like a generator
for heat or cool
but I usually don’t do that.
I usually just do fine
with those extra blankets.
I’ll go ahead and close the trunk now.
It’s got these nice handles.
Reach up like this.
There we go.
And there it is again.
You know I’ve got shoes on
and I’m still able to fit.
As you can see here.
It’s pretty comfortable.
You know it’s easy to
hit your head and bump it
but you got these handles to help you out
when you’re getting ready to exit.
Here’s the door handle.
Just pop it open like this.
So a lot of times in the morning
I’ll just kind of scan around,
make sure I’m not gonna disrupt anyone,
turn myself sideways like this,
pop right out
and there we go.
And again, this car is just so stealthy
because it’s nice.
You know I keep it nice,
I wash it, I wax it myself.
I keep it tuned up,
I expect it to go just forever.
They’re very very efficient
because it uses regenerative breaking,
the breaks really don’t have
to be replaced very often.
It uses a continuously
variable transmission
so that’s really smooth
and again very efficient.
Yes, you’re paying a premium
because it’s hybrid and stuff
but now that we’re onto the
next generation and stuff
this one, you know you
pick up last generation
and there’s just tons of room.
I actually think this,
I think this is gen three,
works better than the newest ones
because there isn’t
quite so much of a bump
when you fold the seats down.
Or seat in this case
so that’s really sweet.
The other consideration
that I’ve been working on
is yes, I have tinted windows,
factory tinted in fact
and at night you really
can’t see in too well
but I wanted to make them
even more blocked out.
Just in case someone comes up here.
There’s not much you can
do for the front seat,
but you know, I’ve got Jack up there
and the windshield, you know,
if I was back there and I
had the blanket over my face,
I really don’t think people would notice.
But still, if I’m watching the iPad,
if I’m using my phone
or something like this
and I just don’t want people peeking in
or getting spooked or something like that
so I’ve got one other solution.
I ordered these special
magnetic window covers,
custom cut for Toyota Prius from Europe.
By the way I’m gonna have all the links
to the different you know,
the computer holder and
some of the mattress pad
and these screens in the description
but I’m a go ahead and put these on
and show you how they work
’cause I think they’re really cool
and it’s just another step
in my little system here.
OK so I’ve put the screens
on the back half of the car.
You can see just looking in
it’s just this pattern very similar
to what some people put for their kid
so that their kids aren’t getting the sun
in their face quite so much.
And I’ve only got it on half here
so you can see clear on this side
and then the mesh on this side
and it fits for all of them,
they just fit perfectly.
I’m super happy about this.
And now I did have to
order them kinda custom
but even from the inside,
look at that, clear up front,
mesh right there on the
small window and at the back
and then these are the
other ones right here.
I’ll just give the shout out,
Nigel Marston Motorsport
from the United Kingdom.
Thank you very much buddy
these are sweet and they pack flat
so I can lay them under my mattress
and I’m not sure I would even
need to use them all the time
but it would just act as a
privacy screen a little bit more.
They even have half pieces that fit
for part of the driver window
just to keep it even more private.
You know one concern that I
have had with Jack the dog
is that some people would
actually think it’s a real dog
and call the police or
try to break the windows
so you know, as real as it looks,
you get close enough and you’re like,
oh maybe that’s not a real dog.
So I hope that, that’s something
that I’m still working on.
I’ve heard about people in LA
getting like blow up dolls
and putting them in their passenger seat
you know, to drive in HOV,
high occupancy vehicle lanes
um, I’m not quite there,
I just think the dog is
kinda cool and friendly
and if I’m ever approached by the law
or something like that,
usually I’m parking in
places that are legal,
it’s a friend’s house
and I just prefer to sleep in my car
but there’s also, there are
times where I’m not sleeping,
I’m just hanging out, relaxing in my car,
using my iPad or something like that.
This is a nice way to
feel some sense of home.
Some sense of peace
when you aren’t at home
or you don’t have a home.
You know, my family lives in Texas,
I’ve got some family
in Colorado, in Arizona
and I can easily get to them.
And I can do it in such a way
that I’m not standing out hopefully
I always drive the speed limit
’cause I have out of state plates.
These are just all the considerations.
Having done this now for several years
and just trying to really dial it in
and think about all the
things that could happen
and thankfully none of them really have.
You know, I have Triple A,
I’ve got my cell phone,
I’ve got all the safety gear
that we talked about before
so it’s just a neat set up
I was excited to share
but I wanted to do so
after I’d actually lived
this way for a while
and could chime in
on some of those fringe cases
and I hope it helps you.

  1. Can you do a couple videos on how to setup an inverter, dashcam, and use the roof solar panel to charge the battery?

  2. What is your take on the suspension? I have a 2011 Prius but also have a 2009 Camry. I feel that the Camry's suspension is much more comfortable for daily driving and long distance driving.
