Boon docking power/ staying fit

All right you've got your nice big RV. You want to go out and get away from it all but you don't want to pay fuel cost for the generator. You're not ready for the investment in solar, and you don't want the hassle of setting up a wind generator. What's a person to do?

Why not pedal for your power. These guys look like they are on to a good idea.

Pedal Power -- Human Scale Energy For Everyday Tasks by Andy Wekin — Kickstarter

A Christmas gift for next year maybe?

Merry 365 to one and all

With a little investigation on the net, I thing you would find that a person trying to power anything other than maybe a small TV, for any period of time, is all but impossible.

Many have tried this over the years, and failed. However, with the invent of the LED powered lighting, It may work for some illumination.

Pair of hamsters or chipmunks on a wheel would work also!
