Camper For One, Please: Bufalino Concept
MORE: AWESOME, CAMPING, CONCEPTUAL, CRUISING, CUTE, DO LIKE, DO WANT, I ACTUALLY DO WANT ONE I WASN’T KIDDING, SLEEPING IN YOUR CAR, SLEEPING WITH BEARS, THAT’S IT I’M BUYING A VOLKSWAGEN VANAGON!, TRANSPORTATION, YES PLEASE
The Bufalino, designed by Cornelius Comanns (great name) is a little three-wheeled camper made for a single person. Or two if you like things cozy. Like, really cozy. I’m talking privates touching cozy (the best kind).
the minimalist construction is based on the existing piaggio APE 50 three wheeled light transport vehicle; a model chosen for its economic and fuel efficient benefits.
‘my aim was to give people a better understanding of the country, the surrounding, and the range they have travelled. the travelling vehicle is always with you like some kind of a base camp, while also being used for moving on in an easygoing and spontaneous way.
‘bufalino’ encourages users to explore the surrounding off beaten tracks. meanwhile the furnished interior consisting of a bed, two seating units, a cooking zone, a basin, storage space, a water tank and a refrigerator offers the comforts of a home.
Call me crazy, but I actually want one. I’ve always wanted to get behind the wheel and see this great country of ours. Ooooor get drunk and have a ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ marathon. What? Baby steps, yo!
Hit the jump for a whole bunch more pictures of the last thing you’ll ever camp in before being mauled by a wolf/bear/mountain lion (maybe I’ve been playing too much RDR).

Bravo to Honduras! They sat down and despite their political differences, and the high emotions, they worked it out! For once I can say that I have some faith in politicians! (Not any of the idiots in Canada!) The Honduran constitutional crisis grew more out of a slow news day, than an actual crisis. And the country very much wants to say that it is “Business as Usual”.
Tourism is down by as much as 70%, and non existent in some areas, have you ever wanted to go to a deserted island? Well Roatan and Utila offer thousands of beautiful resorts, hotels, restaurants and bars that are currently offering spectacular deals. Your vacation just got cheaper and more private!
Roatan has always been a safe destination, and this past year it instituted an active crime watch program, combined with efforts to support the local Marine Park, the future has been reassured above and below the waterline. So come visit, there are lots of ways, contact me and I’ll gladly help out for free! After all I’ve been going to the Bay Islands since 1997!

With the latest inaction of the Canadian government in regard to the climate talks in Copenhagen, Harper is borrowing from our children’s futures. If you could put a positive spin on the potential end of life as we know it, it would have received one of those big tory cheques, with a big logo. But you can’t. By actually going to the conference, with a firm agenda, all that is being doe is sending a bunch of hardline right wingers on an all expense paid holiday to Denmark.
In fact I offer that the cost of the flights and hotels would be enough money to really do some good, somewhere where politicians are not.
