    We took a Makita battery powered leaf blower camping on a bike tour

    it was good for blowing up air mattresses and blowing the water off of tarps and tent flys

    Dude I do the same thing w my little makita blower! Especially to blow the desert dust off the moto and truck bed after arrival at destination. I Also picked up their little air compressor to fill tires. It’s been helpful in several instances.

    That's a good idea. We recently picked up the ryobi fan (no mister) for truck bed camping. Runs on low all night with a 4ah battery and really helps cool it off in there.

    I had no idea Ryobi offered that misting fan. That's a great idea.

    I'm a. It surprised to see the Ryobi love, but as a casual homeowner I have to say I'm thrilled with their 18V cordless tools. The 18 gauge finish nailer and 23 gauge pin nailer have been fantastic. I've got over 1000 fasteners through each with no issues and have not recharged either 4AH battery.

    This thing is perfect to take the edge off when I'm wrenching in the garage in the winter.

    So you put it in that tube and then what happens?

    Yeah I ended up w the ridgid fan for camping at the gorge a couple years back. Runs two nights on a 4ah battery and makes a huge difference in sleeping in.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    It would be cool to have that be your doorbell button or some other mundane function that would give people pause.

    Mundane you say? It’s still seems functional, we’re going to see about something going Ka-BOOM. My oldest brother happens to be on the bomb squad for a county SD besides leaving it on the porch is risky, I’ve seen them sold for $6-700

    That Ryobi collection back there is bananas. Cool. But crazy. Ryobi engineers are definitely high at work.

    You were the brown nosing student who volunteered to sharpen all the pencils for the teacher?
    (That's a lot nicer sharpener than my school ever had.)
