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!

After owning this property since 1988, we have huge gardens, solar water, and electricity eight chickens, (and next year three pigs). We have discovered that we, our home, our farm our everything. Is contained within the 120 meter set back from an Ontario Province significant wetland area. In our case it is administered by the Cataraquai Waterway authority. the upshot of all this is that we had to teenagers come out to our property and tell us that we would have to pay them $150 every time we built a building or graded our driveway.
Now I am all for protecting the earth that we inhabit, but how come I get this tax? I’ve been solar since ’88 but I never got any kind of credit for that. we buy locally what we don’t produce here, and we manage our water consumption carefully. (We have a dug well). But not so the others in the area!
Up the road there is a chap (very connected, government job) who put two lakes in, with his back hoe he flooded a huge area, making himself a private lake!, then he put in a large lined pond, All within the wetland. Currently they are redoing a local bridge in Outlet. The construction company is dumping huge amount of chipped concrete into the creek, do they have a permit? No. The county even hauls water directly out of Grippen Creek which is next to my property. Within the PSW!
This is an attack against the local rural farmer, please go to our Facebook page and join our cause, after all they let people have chickens in Toronto now, why not let us have this new fangled technology you call chicken, out here in the countryside!
