Aspen Times Weekly: ‘Generac’ Gas Generator

by Stephen Regenold

Electricity in the outdoors has become commonplace in recent years, with solar panels and portable battery packs now fixtures of the modern campsite. But despite quieter, cleaner options, for big jobs you still need the power of gas.

A new entry this fall in the gas-generator market, Generac introduced its iQ2000 model as “a smart, powerful generator without all the excess noise.”

Generators have a bad image with some campers. Older units are loud, exhaust-spewing contraptions that can wreck the peace at a park. Though the Generac is not silent, its engine hum is relatively benign, quieter than most idling cars.

The Generac offers a pair of 120-volt plug-ins just like you get at home. It’s able to output 1600 watts while running, which is enough to power small gadgets to big appliances.

‘Wireless’ is a made-for-mobile thriller set in Colorado ski country

|

For anybody who lives here on the Western Slope, “Wireless” will likely conjure up some bad memories of winter trips westbound on Interstate 70, when Eisenhower Tunnel closures left you stranded, when you sit parked waiting for an accident to clear for hours worried you’d run out of gas, or — as is the case with Andy — when you took a bad detour or shortcut.
