Larry Edsall, Special to The Detroit News, talks about his trip using the Tuff Truck Bag – "Each year about this time, I drive from my home in Arizona to the Cedar River Lodge campground in Michigan between Beaverton and Gladwin. I make the trip in a Nissan Frontier pickup, the bed of which I fill with stuff I need — from reference books to clothes, from camera and laptop to golf clubs — and this year a waffle iron and coffee maker as well.
Usually, I put everything into covered plastic bins, which I wrap within a couple of opaque plastic tarps. Overnight security in a motel parking lot is one issue, but just as worrisome is rain. Seems no matter how securely I try to make those tarps, the late-spring thunderstorms I encounter as I drive across Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri somehow soak something I wanted — and needed — to keep dry.
So this year I tried a different solution, the Original Tuff Truck Bag. I’m very happy to report that I’ve arrived in Michigan and despite several deluges along the way, my stuff is dry."
