Why You Should Buy the Solo Stove Bonfire Stand & Shelter 2.0

While a new fire pit can keep things a little warmer on the patio during colder seasons, it really could be thought of as an annual addition. A fire pit makes a great place to gather to stay warm in the winter and to enjoy drinks, food, and company in the summer. When it first came out we called the Solo Stove the only backyard fire pit you’ll ever need, and the Solo Stove 2.0 improves upon everything it had to offer. It can fulfill all of your needs from a fire pit in the backyard or on the patio, but it also has some super portability to its design, allowing you to take it on camping trips, tailgate outings, or anywhere else you like to go for some outdoors time.

This Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 bundle has some additional accessories included that can go a long way toward putting it to good use. A stand is included, which allows you to use the Solo Stove 2.0 on heat sensitive surface like grass or a wooden deck. It also comes with a PVC-coated polyester shelter that repels rain, snow, dust, and wind. A removable ash pan is something you’ll find in this newest iteration of the Solo Stove. It makes the Solo Stove 2.0 easy to clean when the day is done.

Adding a fire pit to the backyard, the campground, or the picnic is as affordable as ever with this Solo Stove 2.0 bundle. Best Buy currently has the package discounted to just $285, which is a $45 savings from its regular price of $330. Free shipping is included, and in-store pickup is available as well.

All about the planned Ziggurat Pyramid in Dubai
Ziggurat Pyramid in Dubai

In recent decades, Dubai has cultivated its skyline with many architectural wonders, including the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Frame. The city is gearing up to add another jewel to its crown: the Ziggurat Pyramid. This mega-structure won't just be an architectural marvel but is also set to embody futuristic sustainability, following in the footsteps of other carbon-neutral projects like Saudi Arabia's The Line.

The Ziggurat Pyramid was announced in 2008, and construction started in 2021. Slated for completion by 2028, this structure is poised to eclipse the Great Pyramid of Giza in both size and splendor. Its design, inspired by the timeless aesthetics of ancient Egyptian and Mayan pyramids, is scaled to a magnitude never seen before. Towering at an astonishing height of 1,200 meters and sprawling across 2.3 square kilometers, the Ziggurat is designed to house a staggering one million people.

Kayak in this rare lake in Death Valley before it dries up

If the outdoors, an ancient lake, and stunning views are all things that make your Spidey senses tingle, you need to head to Death Valley as soon as possible. The National Park Service says there is a small window when you could kayak in a lake in Badwater Basin, and it's happening right now. Pack your gear and go on an adventure at Death Valley National Park.

The ancient lake is having a moment
The driest spot in the U.S. saw enough rain to turn the lowest elevation point in North America (which hits 282 feet below sea level) into a glorious lake where kayaks roam free. Though it is only temporary, Badwater Basin, located at the bottom of Death Valley National Park, a foot of water took over the normally dry salt flat to form Lake Manly.
Help from a hurricane
The unexpected additional inches of rainfall boosted Badwater Basin due to Hurricane Hilary in August 2023. Typically, Death Valley National Park gets two inches of rain a year, but because of the hurricane, the valley floor caught 4.9 inches in six months, with a bonus of 1.5 inches in early February.
