20 May

It’s Foldable Fire Ring and Portable BBQ Grills are Currently on Fire on Kickstarter and have exceeded their crowdfunding goal by 1025% on the very first day as Tailgaters, Backyard BBQers, Car Campers, Glampers, RVers, Boondockers and Other Outdoor Adventurers Buy New BBQ Grills for the 2021 Camping Season


Raleigh, NCTurboTrails.com announced today that the outdoor adventure gear company has rolled out a brand new bullet proof, portable heavy-duty steel #PakPit #BBQ #Grill and #foldable #firepit #ring that measures a mere 0.56″ thick when all 4 pieces are disassembled, stacked and packed in their rough and tough fireproof traveling bag.

The PakPit, Flat-to-Pack BBQ Grills are on sale NOW on Kickster.com while supplies last for the $75 Earlybird specials at => https://buff.ly/2Qv5gzV.

Its indestructible, hot-rolled steel plates are always an instant hit with tailgaters, campers, RVers, backyard BBQers and outdoor adventurers that are tired of buying cheap thin tin grills from Walmart, Home Depot and Lowes that burn out, rust out and wear out in a single season when used on a regular basis with hot fires that cause rapid rusting and oxidation.

Each of the four pieces of the PakPit are made from hot rolled steel that are 1/8″ thick. They will get hot and even glow red, but they will not melt or degradate. They are guaranteed to last longer than your lifetime. The PakPit will l probably be the last grill you ever have to buy because they are engineered to last.

When the cooking is done. They are easy to take apart, wash and scrub if needed, and stack perfectly on top of each other into a very slim profile that measures around 5/16’s of an inch. Once clean and cool they can be slipped into their travel bag. Their slim flat profile make them very easy to store in cabinets, closets; under RV, boat, car and truck seats or in the bed of trucks, car trunks and trailers. They make the perfect gift for every outdoor adventure guide or camping enthusiast that seems to have everything.

PakPit, flat-to-pack BBQ grills make the perfect firepit for beaches, city parks, state parks and the national forests that allow for dispersed or event camping, but do not have fire pit rings installed. They can be setup in less than 30 seconds. They can burn charcoal, firewood or setup to burn propane during burn bans.

The PakPits’ unique and patented design uses three sides that resemble the pakman video game character that slide together and connect to form a triangular base that lifts the fire off the ground so that it does not leave a burnmark trace on the ground, on wooden or rubberized picnic tables, or metal tailgates when used to grill out for a large group of friends. The round grill top fits perfectly into each piece’s carrying handle to provide a large integrated cooking surface area.



Once the cooking is done, leftover coals can be dumped into a tin cooking pan and completely extinguished with bottled water. We like to lean the hot metal plates against a rock and they will be cool enough to pack up in around 5 minutes. Their travel bags are fireproof so they can be put up while they are still warm without worries.

What is size is right for you?

Most people like to purchase the large 17″ PakPat complete with 26″ stand for backyard BBQs and firepits. It is the perfect solution for backyard BBQs for large parties, birthdays and sport tailgating events and has a 12-burger-at-one-time cooking capacity. People that travel prefer the smaller 13.5″ version unless they are traveling with a large family.

 By Robert Hoskins

Heber City, Utah – TwistRate announced that the crowdfunding platform officially launched and is positioned to serve veterans, service members, law enforcement personnel, outdoor enthusiasts, and the extreme sports, fishing and hunting communities a dedicated place to come together online to fund the ideas, passions and dreams of their communities.

The donation- and reward-based crowdfunding site is truly unique, as it not only caters to those that protect and serve the red, white and blue, but brings communities together to fund passion projects and provides all of the tools for campaigners to accomplish their goals. TwistRate goes above and beyond typical fundraising sites’ services to offer intellectual property protections services, business plan writing, and full-service video productions and editing services, the cost of which can even be financed into approved campaigns.

Crowdfunding initiatives are expected to reach $93 billion in funds raised by 2025, with numerous platforms emerging to fill the needs of specific communities that often best understand the value their inventions are bringing to the market. TwistRate’s founders were inspired to create the platform particularly for veterans, who continue to suffer from higher unemployment rates than the general population, a figure expected to increase as more soldiers return home. TwistRate also helps those entrepreneurs and small business owners, who many traditional financial institutions have left behind, connect directly with their potential customers to raise funds.

Designed by Special Forces veterans to be “part social, part finance and all American,” TwistRate makes American dreams come true by connecting the dreamers with the dollars.

“What drew me to TwistRate was that it brought together the people who would actually understand and use my invention,” says Jeff Byers of Frog Fuel. “As a SEAL, I know how important teamwork is, and now, as an inventor, I’m getting the tools and resources I need to succeed, in a safe and secure environment, full of fellow vets and entrepreneurs. No big company would ever do this.”

“TwistRate’s goal is to make achieving the American Dream possible again,” says CEO Evan Hafer. “In the service and in my personal life, I have seen so many amazing inventors who produce innovations that will truly benefit their communities. It is time for these entrepreneurs to have an easy and secure way to connect with like-minded professionals who can help them create, launch, market and distribute their dreams.”

The site currently features campaigns from former SEALs, Marines and police officers, focusing on obstacle course-style races, performance and camping products, nonprofit organizations and more.

Headquartered in Utah, TwistRate was founded by Jeff Kirkham, who served for 27 years with the U.S. Army Special Forces, and Evan Hafer, who spent 14 years of his career serving as an infantryman and as a Green Beret Special Forces solider. Both of these men are inventors, athletes, entrepreneurs, teachers and avid outdoorsmen.

“We just wanted to create a special place for our community that gives its all, protecting and serving its country, its cities, its neighbors and its men and women in uniform,” says Kirkham. “TwistRate brings communities together to fund their own, build their own and make their own — all on their own. It is the American dream in action.”

Inteliscope Takes Aim with Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign to Fund First Tactical Rifle Adapter for Smartphone Targeting System

14 Jun

Now Hunters and Military Troops Can Use  SmartPhones such as Android or iPhone to Target and Record the Hunt of a Lifetime in the Woods or Real Life Conditions on the Battlefield

By Robert Hoskins

Newly formed company Inteliscope, LLC recently announced the launch of its Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter and Apple device application – the world’s first tactical rifle adapter for smartphones. The iPhone application is being submitted to Apple for review and approval. As the state agency responsible for promoting exciting news for Idaho businesses, Idaho Commerce was thrilled to have a chance to speak with the company about their product.

Inteliscope, LLC Creates Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign to Raise Funds to Create World’s First Tactical Rifle Adapter for Smartphones

Inteliscope, LLC was founded earlier this year in Sandpoint by Jason Giddings, who also established TransluSense, LLC – creator of the Luminae® glass multi-touch keyboard and touchpad. With production facilities in place and TransluSense development continuing, Giddings challenged his mechanical, software and business teams to create the Inteliscope device on an aggressive ten-week schedule.

“We’re ready to get started with what we came to Idaho to do: hire good employees and help the economy of North Idaho,” Giddings said.

Inteliscope products are made up of two parts: a tactical rail mount for an iPhone or iPod and an app that brings critical ballistics and environmental insight to the shooter in real time. For the launch, the company decided to include all three cases in a single product for Apple devices instead of offering three separate products. Thus, when the customer receives the adapter, it will have cases to fit the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, and iPod Touch version 5. The Inteliscope mount system attaches an iPhone or iPod Touch securely to any firearm with a Picatinny (Mil-STD-1913) or Weaver tactical rail, which includes a number of features.

The company also is working with Indiegogo, a crowd-funding platform (similar to Kickstarter), to fund development of the app and hardware for Android phones. If Inteliscope’s campaign is funded, the company plans to have the Android-compatible devices available in August.
