Last summer, my wife, kids and I were in a very fortunate situation to finally do the American Road Trip we had been dreaming about. The four of us visited 22 National Parks in about 6 weeks time. Expect for only a few nights we camped out every night.

Jackery sent me the Explorer 200 to review and after having used it for the last couple of weeks, I really like it. This bad boy will be coming with me on any future trip I’ll be making.
