About | Mike & Inky's Freedom Challenge - What exactly is the Freedom Challenge?It is a mountain bike race from Pietermaritzburg to Wellington, following a trail through some of the most remote areas across KZN, Eastern and Western Cape.It is self-navigated. Armed with a map, route narrative and a compass, we need to make our way across the country.

  • What's in the pack? | Mike & Inky's Freedom Challenge - After some experience in riding with backpacks, we know that the best thing to do is to pack as light as possible.Previously, on our trips through the Alps, we managed to keep our backpacks fairly light. But that was in summer conditions, with pastry shops and gelato cafes along the way. This is winter, in rural South Africa.So, this is what we are carrying: *
  • That's a lot of tubs! | Mike & Inky's Freedom Challenge - While we have the opportunity to send to 25 Support Stations, we have only sent tubs to the ones where we plan to stay overnight.With the aim to finish in around 20 days, we have sent 19 tubs for full overnight stops, and another 2 to stations where we will stop in, but not necessarily stay overnight.In order to keep our backpacks light, we've done our best to decant as much as possible and to then collect from our tubs every day. A lot of planning has gone into this, and hopefully we've not overdone it, or missed anything either.So this is what's in our tubs: *

  • Cindi Hansen - Awesome!

    A+ pepper grinder! I love this thing! I like that you don't have to turn it or crank to make the pepper grind. It is easy and you just squeeze the black handle and bam here comes the pepper. It doesn't have big crunchy flakes like some grinders produce and is made of very sturdy materials. I like to open new products and try to figure them out without the directions to make sure the product is very intuitive and it is! Easy to fill new pepper kernels (see pic for refill opening) and very sleek design. I will be able to leave it out on my counter instead of having to hide away in my cabinetry. Awesome find!

  • Sammie - Love it!

    I have bought FOUR of these phones (2 for me and two for my parents) from BLU and they have always worked AMAZING for us. I and my parents love the phones so much. They do everything we need and are 1/4 the cost of any other smart phone currently on the market. (It helps that I have not has one blow up like some other phones out there.)

  • Ryan & Zach's Mimi - Very Very Accurate Monitor!!!

    To use it, depress the lever at the rear of the unit to open the finger chamber, then insert a finger (nail side up) into the soft silicone opening. The spring system in this unit self adjusts in such a way that it will fit your finger snugly but not so tight as to be uncomfortable and it won't impede blood flow. Once your finger is in the chamber simply push the power button on the face of the unit and wait a between 4 to 6 seconds for the results to be displayed on the screen. The display faces the user and displays battery power level, SpO2 (oxygen) Level on the top, and Heart Rate on the bottom in large red led light against a black background to make it easy to read. I found the display very easy to see and read as well as stable.

  • Eric B. - A Light Show for your Garden and More!

    I live in the mountains where there are lots of tall pine trees. There is a small nursery in town that had some of these laser garden lights that they put on the ground and pointed up into the trees. At night when it is dark, these laser lights can be seen only when they hit the tree and its branches with pine needles. What you see is a truly amazing look of twinkling lights in a tree that is over 100' tall. These lights easily shine over the 100' height of the tree as they will project their light over 100 yards and cover about 800 square feet of space. This laser light makes the tree light up from top to bottom, with very bright twinkling lights, giving the tree a real cool look. Being that they are laser lights, they produce a much brighter light than any LED lights I have seen. This Laser Garden Light from CRGPRO uses laser holographic technology to project thousands of bright star like lights in both green and red on anything you point it at. Each light seems to twinkle and get brighter and dimmer so it looks just like a twinkling star. What is especially nice about this laser light is the remote control that comes with the unit that not only gives you a way to turn the light on and off, but control the flashing, color, and even how long the lights will stay on. You can program, using the remote, the lights to stay on for 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours. The unit is sturdy and waterproof with a long, almost 20', cord so it is easy to install and use. You will get everything you need to install and use the laser light right out of the box. It uses much less energy than most decorative lights being used today and it uses a 12V adapter that is included to power the light. At Christmas time when everyone else is on ladders attaching there Christmas lights to their houses for holiday decorations, I will simply turn my laser garden light towards the house and I will have instantly decorated my entire house with more lights than my neighbor could possibly put up and it won't cost me an arm and a leg in electricity to leave them on during the holidays. The unit does not get very hot when in use which is another plus with this type of garden or display light. There are many uses for this beautiful laser star light that I can come up with, but I like the effect on the trees at night for decorative outdoor lighting the best.

  • April - I absolutely love the 12 benefits instant healthy hair treatment

    I absolutely love the 12 benefits instant healthy hair treatment! My sister has told me about this product and how healthy it is for your hair and since I always blow dry, straighten, and curl my hair I had to try it out! My favorite thing about this stuff is that is de-tangles my hair which in then eliminates a lot of breakage! I have noticed my hair more healthier since I have used this. It also smells great, which is a bonus. I have also been using it on my 3 1/2 year old daughter too because it helps with the tangles and makes her hair so soft. I notice the softness right away with this stuff even after blow-drying and styling my hair. This is a must to hair in any bathroom. Great benefits and great product.
