The most essential part of any camping equipment is your sleep system. Your whole game is thrown off if you’re not well rested. I used to sing the praises of the Teton Sports ComfortLite. Now that I’ve upgraded my tent to a 2013 Subaru Outback, the ComfortLites just aren’t cutting it. I decided to go all out and invested in the Exped MegaMat Duo 10 as my car camping mattress of choice.
I bought Opal the Outback back in January of this year. It was a scary decision to fork over so much money, but over time. I also realized she’s one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. Since then, I also started a new job, one that allows me to be remote most of the time. Over the past few months, I’ve been slowly perfecting my live-and-work on the road setup. I’m not very handy. I honestly don’t really care to learn or acquire all the tools required for actual construction. I wanted to leave my car largely unmodified. So here’s my guide to a Subaru Outback build out without actually building anything out.

I’m the person who always manages to kill someone’s car battery, especially bouldering in Bishop in the winter. Now that I have my own car (Opal!), I’m trying to take extra good care of her. My day job as a software engineer allows me to be remote. More often than not, I am (trying to be) on the road. Toss in my side gig as a blogger and photographer, and I need to power my electronics at all times. Jackery sent over the Explorer 240 for me to play with while on the road. Here’s how it fared.
