Thirsty work

Diane Kruger with her Mercedes F-Cell

Actors Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson recently purchased the eco-friendly Mercedes Benz B-Class F-Cell – which has pure water as its only emission – and promptly put it to the test by taking it camping for two days in California’s Death Valley. The twist is that they took no water supplies, and relied on water created from the emissions of their F-Cell to survive.

“We’ve become absolute fans of the fuel cell,” Diane said of the trip, documented in the short video below.  The good news was the trek was a success and they didn’t run out of water.  “The car usage is so easy. On a day-to-day basis our normal mobility isn’t restricted at all – and we had no water problems in Death Valley either.”




The Pet Tube

It’s really important to keep your furry critter safe and property restrained in the back seat of the car, and I’ve been a fan of the ‘seat saver’ type concept for years. Bottom line, I have two huskies and fabric seats. The fur that gets smooshed all over the seats is just horrendous. I’m also an epic fan of pet rescue (feel free to support Siberian Husky Rescue Vic because they are brilliant) so the perfect combination is this great pet tube which you can buy online via Rescued! Is my Favourite Breed on Amazon. It’s less than USD$80 plus shipping.


It’s a great option as it keeps them snug and safe and the Pet Tube tethers to the seat so your dogs are safely restrained. And look! Clean seats! I’ll let you know if I can track down an Australian supplier.
