We all know that the worst part of campfires is sitting in the dirt. Sure you can bring along one of those Crazy Creek camping chairs but why settle when you can rule the outdoors like God intended?
There is only two problems with the officially licensed Star Trek captain’s chair. The first is that it’s inflatable so watch for sparks and the second is that it’s only for somebody up to 120lbs. The description on the site says that it’s designed for kids but I like to believe it’s a weight management motivator for fat camping geeks.
Other than those minor drawbacks, I give this and official rating of, "Set course for awesome".
Pick up your own chair at thinkgeek.com for only $24.99.
If you got a job this summer to be a guide on the ocean make sure you print off or memorize this handy-dandy chart to help tell the difference between "octopuses," "octopi," and "octopodes". Click on the image below to see the full size version.
This is critical training as you don’t want to ever want to get it wrong in front of your clients.

My friend Fiona from Badger Paddles sent me photos of a canoe paddle they made for a customer who has as serious as air guitaring as I am.
Not quite the clearest directions but would you believe I have friends who would do a poorer job while out on a canoe trip? It’s true.
