The world’s first AI-powered trip planning tool for RVs and campers

(Bluffton, SC) — The creators of AdventureGenie are excited to introduce the world’s first AI-powered RV and camping trip planning tool. Founded by former Microsoft senior technology executive, Scott Lengel, and veteran CEO/investor, David Greenberg, AdventureGenie uses next-generation technology to understand what RV travelers want when planning exciting adventures. In addition to creating itineraries, AdventureGenie’s smart technology can intelligently generate personalized trips based on the most searched themed trips, complete with detailed travel guides and recommended campsites and activities. AdventureGenie is the world’s first comprehensive trip planning website for RVs, motorhomes, and road travelers. For more information, visit

AdventureGenie includes an extensive database of over 25,000 public and private campgrounds and proprietary AI-based algorithms to customize itineraries for each user. AdventureGenie offers innovative features such as GenieSummaries (a unique way to summarize and describe each Campground), GenieScores (an innovative rating system), and GenieMatch (showing how closely AdventureGenie believes each Campground is a good fit for each individual user). Travelers will learn which camps best suit their personal preferences and will be able to book them.

“We answer the three key questions on the minds of campers and RVers: What to do? How to get there? Where to stay?” said Scott Lengel, CEO of AdventureGenie. “Our GenieTrips provide detailed itineraries to dozens of popular destinations. Our database of over 25,000 campgrounds, with the built-in magic of GenieSummaries, GenieScores, and GenieMatch, identifies the perfect campgrounds for every traveler. And our adaptive route planning tool creates custom routes, recommends AI-generated GenieStops along the way, and is fully integrated with our campground database and GenieTrips.”

Planning camping and RV trips can be complicated and frustrating. It often requires having a variety of websites and apps open at once, ranging from individual campground websites to mapping websites, area attraction searches, and more. Some apps have proper route planners, but they list only a few of the many campsites near a stop. None of the existing websites or apps help travelers plan trips the way most RVers plan, and campground ratings are unreliable. RVers often like to meander on and off a route and other times it’s just getting straight to the destination to fully explore an area. Some like places “in the middle of nowhere”, while others like places with all the amenities. The magic of AdventureGenie is that it thinks like real travelers, and then makes it easy to turn a vision into a great trip, with all the planning tools in one place.

“AdventureGenie is the answer to the most perplexing question my wife and I encounter when planning RV vacations: Can’t there be a one-stop shop for RVs and campers to plan their dream trip? The answer is a resounding YES,” said David Greenberg, President of AdventureGenie.

About AdventureGenie:AdventureGenie is the first AI-powered one-stop shop for planning camping trips and RVs. Their mission is to offer the most immersive, innovative and intelligent adventure travel planning solution for the RV and camping community. In addition to being able to create point-to-point stops, Genie offers personalized trip itineraries, smart routing, campground reviews and reservations, and more. Just tell Genie where you want to go and its smart technology will do the rest.


Since 1922, improving shooters’ accuracy has been a primary factor behind Easton’s archery engineering. To meet that goal, Easton has developed a proprietary process called Acu-carbon. The Acu-Carbon process is a single die, continuous feed manufacturing method that produces consistent shafts and eliminates the need for spine grading and weighting that can plague archers and bow hunters seeking precision. Carbon shafts made this way are used throughout the Easton line and are found in products like the 6.5, SONIC, AXIS, and FMJ.

Nebraska landowners list 260,000 acres on land share market

LandTrust connects homeowners with outdoor recreationists

Among the 77 Nebraska listings covering 260,000 acres available to reserve recreational opportunities on the LandTrust website, Henry Beel’s family ranch near Ainsworth has been earning additional income since spring 2021.

Known as “The Airbnb for Outdoor Recreationists,” LandTrust is an online marketplace that allows homeowners to connect directly with outdoor enthusiasts, providing opportunities to recreate on their property and allowing them to generate additional passive income. Owners can arrange experiences like hunting, bird watching, farm tours, RV stays and more, with full control over each reservation.

“At the LandTrust, we believe that the future of working land depends on a portfolio of income from agricultural production, conservation and recreational opportunities,” said Nic De Castro, LandTrust founder and CEO. “We help landowners harness the income potential of these recreational opportunities while opening up millions of acres of private land for outdoor enthusiasts to have new experiences and create lasting memories.”

Recreational opportunities at the 900 acre Beel Ranch include deer hunting, turkey hunting, coyote hunting, and bird watching. Beel’s family is highly focused on keeping animal populations healthy and appreciates the control they have with the LandTrust, which allows them to turn reserves on and off as populations fluctuate.

“LandTrust has been an easy way to expand our business beyond ranching – everything helps. And we have full control of who gets to hunt and on what days, rather than an outfitting service,” Beel said. “For example, we turned down about 20 turkey hunts this year in order to maintain a healthy population. We also limit the number of deer that hunters can take.”

Like other sharing economy companies like Airbnb and Vrbo, LandTrust is a land-sharing site where homeowners can list their properties online and outdoor enthusiasts can search for experiences that match their interests. Landowners primarily in Montana, Nebraska, and Kansas currently list more than 1 million acres with the LandTrust, which can be searched by state, property name, or type of experience.

“Compared to traditional annual leases, homeowners prefer LandTrust’s short-term lease model because it allows them to continue to let friends, family, and neighbors hunt, fish, and enjoy their land, and also generate income when they’re not on it. wearing”. DeCastro said.

For Beel’s family, LandTrust has been easy to use and has even led to long-lasting relationships.

“The LandTrust platform doesn’t take a lot of time to use and comes with the support of LSMs (Landowner Success Managers),” Beel said. “We’ve seen a lot of out-of-state hunters since we started using it and we’ve still been able to allow family, friends and locals to hunt on our property whenever we want. We’ve even had recurring guests – one I text regularly will be visiting for the third year.”

About LandTrust: LandTrust is an easy-to-use online marketplace that generates income for landowners and provides recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts by connecting them with each other. Hundreds of landowners, many of whom are fourth, fifth or even sixth generation, currently list more than 1 million acres in the LandTrust, offering reservations for DIY outdoor experiences from hunting and fishing to bird watching and foraging. , farming and ranch tours and more, while retaining control over your property. LandTrust currently lists properties in Rocky Mountain West and the Great Plains, and plans to expand to five more states by 2023.

Fisher’s AG7: the original pen for every mission

What do astronauts need when they carry out a mission in space? We can think of some essentials like oxygen, food, water, medical supplies, and hygiene products needed for basic human needs within a unique zero-gravity environment. What else would they need to operate smoothly? Something else we use every day: pens.

Just like all other ordinary materials need modification to work well in space, astronaut pens need a different construction to write well in a gravity-free environment. Fisher Pen Company® created the AG7, the original Astronaut Space Pen, to answer this need. Fisher’s AG7 was then meticulously tested by NASA® for two years before beginning use on the historic Apollo 7 space mission in 1968. Since then, the original space pen has been used on all human spaceflight. Also, the pen has gained popularity among the general public for decades.

One of the most notable aspects of this AG7 is that its original design and material have remained the same as the early Fisher Space Pens on the Apollo CSM-101 spacecraft. The reason for the same frame and a half is simple but nothing short of impressive. The original Astronaut Space Pen was so well made that it didn’t need any changes for over 50 years! The solid brass body of the AG7 ballpoint pen is clad in an incredibly strong chrome layer, ensuring its stability while operating in a harsh and unique environment. The AG7’s rear click and side retraction mechanism make it easy to use with one hand and great for multitasking. With Fisher’s famous pressurized PR4 cartridge inside, the Original Astronaut Space Pen writes in zero gravity regardless of angles. The AG7’s writing ability is guaranteed even under water, in arctic conditions or in blistering heat.

The Original Astronaut Space Pen is proudly made in the USA using the highest quality materials sourced from around the world and in the USA. The pen ships in attractive packaging featuring the image of an astronaut landing on the moon, and gift wrapping and custom engraving are available for an additional cost. The pen measures just over five inches long and weighs just one ounce, so users will enjoy a compact, multi-functional tool to take with them on the go.

Not everyone is an astronaut. However, anyone can have this pen as part of the history of US space exploration in his pocket. The AG7 also makes a great gift for space mission enthusiasts or anyone who needs a lovely writing device that’s reliable beyond measure!

Fisher AG7 Features:

  • Rear click mechanism with side retract button
  • Brass composition with chrome finish.
  • Fisher Pressurized PR4 Black Ink Cartridge
  • Packaged in a gift box with an astronaut sleeve.

Fisher AG7 Specifications:

  • Length: 5.06 inches.
