Watching the sun set on a secluded lake before crawling into your trailer to slip into a fresh-air induced deep sleep is the quintessential camping vignette. But for so many of us, the thought of owning an RV is daunting. You need to invest in a trailer, a vehicle sturdy enough to tow it, maintain it and probably pay to store it. What if you only want to experience trailer life for a weekend or a week each year? Maybe owning an RV doesn’t make economic sense, but renting it might.
How many times have you strapped gear to the roof of the car under a clear blue sky to have the rain gods show up to drench it? Obviously, it happened too many times to the creative heads at Front Runner in South Africa, so they developed the Monsoon Bag, a storage solution tough enough to handle, well, a monsoon. The Monsoon Bag has a 90-litre capacity and is constructed with thick waterproof PVC-coated material. The base and corners are thickened to avoid early spot fatigue.
Whether at a tailgate party, on a camping trip or just hanging out in the garage, sometimes a little heavy metal cranked up loud is what you need. But swinging the doors open on the car really isn’t that great for sound, and it doesn’t look cool. What you need is a portable battery-powered boombox capable of playing tunes from almost any source. For the price, the Sondpex 2.0 Bluetooth Tailgate System is the perfect device to toss in the trunk for a party.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
