There is camping and then there is camping – and Redverz Gear founder Kevin Muggleton knows the difference. We’re not talking glamping here, though with the massive footprint of the company’s flagship tent, the Atacama, a glamper could probably bring the kitchen sink with them and be satisfied in there. Kevin and his wife Christine are my favorite type of entrepreneurs – the ones who, as Mr. Bigweld himself admonishes us, “See a need, fill a need!”
We’ll let Kevin tell the story, but – spoiler alert here – it starts with him waking up in the middle of nowhere and suddenly finding himself in ownership of nothing but a small motorcycle, a small tent and a pair of underpants.

We’d like to welcome Nancy and Mark, the couple behind the fun Mimi and Moto books, as episode sponsors! You might remember them from Episode 76, but if you don’t – give that episode a listen and then cruise on over to their website at mimiandmoto.com to pick up some books and other gifts for the kids in your life this holiday season.
In the news for this episode, we look a recent study correlating organ donations with large motorcycle rallies and a new racing championship series for women. In electric motorcycle news, it’s all about FUELL’s future Fllow (and yes, that’s spelled correctly) and RYVID’s Anthem – both competitively priced “commuter-class” bikes.
