Camper You Pull With Your Bike Turns the World Into Your Backyard

Camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but who says you need a car to get to your destination?

A Danish company has created the Wide Path Camper, a bicycle camper that allows you to tour the country on your two legs.

Granted, the trailer itself weighs 100 pounds, so unless you hook it onto an electric bike or have very strong legs, you'll be pedaling pretty slowly and perhaps not on steep or rocky terrain.

The tiny home on wheels, according to Outside Online, can haul up to 300 pounds of gear and be set up in less than five minutes.

The best part is that the trailer can expand from 39-by-51 inches for towing into 39-by-102 inches for camping.

Inside the camper, there's a sitting area with a table that seats four people. The table can also convert into a bed for two.

The company is planning to add even more features, such as a sunroof and solar cells so you can power your electronic devices.

According to a Facebook post last month, the company is currently working on getting the product to U.S. and Canadian markets. The trailer costs $4,000.

Climate Week this year coincides with clear skies in Washington state for the first time in almost two weeks.

In just a few days in early September, Washington state saw enough acres burned – more than 600,000 – to reach our second-worst fire season on record. Our worst fire season came only five years ago. Wildfires aren't new to the west, but their scope and danger today is unlike anything firefighters have seen. People up and down the West Coast – young and old, in rural areas and in cities – were choking on smoke for days on end, trapped in their homes.

Fires like these are becoming the norm, not the exception.
