Revolutionary New Storage Product Invented by Mother and Son Team

Packbands bundle of 3 storage straps

Packbands securing rolled yoga mat on the beach

Initially developed as a travel product, Packbands unique design has hundreds of uses for work, home, baby and exercise.

The problem with rubber bands is that they break and wrinkle clothing. If you roll something larger, like a sweater or pair of jeans, a rubber band doesn’t work. Packbands solve those problems."”

— Martha Spelman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — You could say, "Packbands were born in Hawaii." 15 months ago, Californians Martha Spelman and her son, Peter Evenson, traveled to Maui and Kauai. That trip, and some issues with packing, ignited an idea and a new product: Packbands.

A Packband is a strong, 100% silicone strap that solves many storage and organization problems not met by existing twist ties, tie-downs, elastic bands, clips, or hook & loop-style straps. Packbands are reusable, durable, washable and UV-resistant. Packbands are molded as one consistent piece and have no metal or moveable parts that could break, rust, scratch surfaces or snag fabric.

From previous travel experiences, Martha and Peter had learned to roll clothing to save luggage space. Each roll was then secured with a rubber band. “The problem with rubber bands,” says Martha, “is that they break and wrinkle clothing. If you roll something larger, like a sweater or pair of jeans, a rubber band doesn’t work.” Packbands solve those problems: they stretch, are open-ended, adjustable and wider (to reduce wrinkling and increase strength). If the user requires a longer band, two or more Packbands can be joined together.

Martha Spelman is a small business branding and marketing consultant with several startups under her belt. Peter Evenson consults in the technology and transportation sector and is co-founder of group transportation app, Swoop. Martha and Peter are using their combined entrepreneurial and marketing experience to launch Packbands.

More Information:

Packbands are stretchy, adjustable straps that secure rolled clothing for packing; organize cords, cables and hoses; attach items to a backpack, purse or stroller; contain fitness and outdoor equipment, and facilitate storage at home, office and workshop.

Packbands are currently available in three colors and sizes: green/9”, blue/12”, orange/15”. They come packaged in a bundle that includes one of each size. Each Packband also includes a separate loop or keeper to hold the end, secure the Packband to a cord or to join two Packbands.

Packbands can also be customized with the logo, name and colors of a company, team or organization.

For more information, to receive a hi-res version of the logo or images or to schedule an interview, please contact: Martha Spelman, martha@packbands.com or visit: www.packbands.com.

OnBoat fleet of charter boats to Catalina Island

Happy OnBoat Customers

OnBoat is announcing its fleet of charter boats from Newport Beach, Los Angeles and Marina Del Rey to Catalina Island

OnBoat has curated the largest fleet of yacht charters to Catalina island. Our Catalina boat options range from powerboats, to catamarans and mega yachts”

— Marc Andelman

MARINA DEL REY, CA, UNITED STATES, February 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — OnBoat is announcing its fleet of charter boats to Catalina Island. Marc Andelman, co-founder of OnBoat, said “OnBoat has curated the largest fleet of yacht charters to Catalina island. Our Catalina boat options range from powerboats, to catamarans and mega yachts.” In addition, he states that customers may hire a yacht to Catalina with an overnight option for up to six people. According to Kevin Wang, OnBoat founder, many people prefer the flexibility and privacy of a Catalina boat rental compared to the ferry.
Marc with OnBoat explains that Catalina is a must-see destination, that also so happens to be just a couple dozen miles off the coast of Southern California. Marc likes to point out the island’s great weather, unique historical and natural charms. He recommends checking out the islands cute little botanical garden, the Wrigley, to help identify some of this island’s many species of plants found nowhere else on earth. Wrigley was a chewing gum magnate who also developed the charming village of Avalon, known for its shops, restaurants, seaside promenade and famous architecture. His estate later gave away 42,000 acres, most of the island, to a land trust to protect the many unique species including the Catalina Island fox.
The other, smaller settlement is 2 harbors, located on an isthmus from which it is possible to see both sides of the island. OnBoat’s Catalina Island yacht charter fleet goes to either Avalon or two harbors, with Los Angeles charter boats to Catalina from Marina del Rey, just three miles from LAX, more yachts in Newport Beach, as well as boats in San Pedro.

They're BAAAAAACK: The Amazing Read travel books are home

Nina in Amsterdam as part of The Amazing Read – I love you send money

Craig at Adirondack High Peak Region Lake Placid NY

Equine Pathways UK – Jackie’s team 28 – takes travel book with football team

But they won't stay long – Charity Auction ends 18 February

Wow…This was a great, fun and powerful read…Jordan has an easy style and great use of humour and observation to keep you glued to see what happens next. Highly recommended A+++”

— Jos's book review, Dean's "Island Time" team

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND, February 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This time last year, Ruby MacAndrew reported how fifty copies of, I Love You, Send Money, were scattered across the world as part of The Amazing Read, brain-child of Wellington author, Jordan Alexander (https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/books/88013251/wellington-author-staging-an-amazing-race-to-launch-her-debut-novel )

Part-funded through Kickstarter, the 'race' objective was to create "a global community of bookworms and travellers."

Mission accomplished!

Most winning books are back home and #8, #35, #32 and #28 are up for auction on Trade Me.co.nz – Proceeds benefit these charities:
Blind Foundation in New Zealand
– Equine Pathways UK (http://equinepathways.co.uk)
– SPCA in British Columbia, Canada (http://spca.bc.ca)
– Joanne's House, Durham Region, Ontario (http://www.durhamyouth.com)
– The Cancer Council in Australia (http://www.cancer.org.au)

"I think it's great the winning teams ended up supporting charities from different countries," says Alexander who rewarded racers with limited edition copies of her book.

"Unfortunately, not all books made it home." Craig's team, racing for Joanne's House, a Durham Region emergency shelter and support for homeless youth, was one. "Craig's from my home town in Oshawa. He'd send photos mountain climbing in the Adirondacks, jumping off waterfalls in Mexico, deep in snow at Lake Placid – that book had an amazing journey!" Alexander will donate a limited first edition book for Craig's charity auction.

The website contains photos sent from readers around the globe: Paris, Hunter Valley, London, Toronto, Maritimes, San Diego, Oregon, Wellington, Bermuda, Scotland, Amsterdam and more.

Alexander's "race recap" video summarises results, including the 'farthest' travelled, Dean's Arrowhead Consulting at 140,000km – that's once around the globe! Jackie, driver for Equine Pathways UK, personally collected her team's book in London.

"I'm over the moon about the race and results," says Alexander whose Amazing Read travel books reached a combined distance over 385,000km (to the moon).

She's hoping race fever continues with the charity auction of winning books on TradeMe.co.nz (https://www.trademe.co.nz/books/rare-collectable/nz-published/other/auction)

The auction closes on 18th February 16:50 NZ time.

Sail Through History: Trace the Baltic Battles of WWII on a Luxury Cruise

TOWSON, MD, USA, February 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As interest in both small-ship cruising and educational travel continues to grow, The National WWII Museum in New Orleans taps into the trend by developing trips that trace events of the World War II era while offering unprecedented luxury and access to discerning guests. The latest of these trips is Tyranny on Two Fronts, a nine-night land and cruise program featuring renowned author and historian Alexandra Richie. The trip explores the tangled web of alliances along the Baltic Sea coast during World War II.

With accommodations aboard the luxury Le Soléal megayacht, guests will sail from Stockholm, Sweden to Copenhagen, Denmark with ports of call in history-rich Helsinki, Finland; St. Petersburg, Russia; and Tallinn, Estonia. Guests travel in style, with balconies featured on every cabin and French-inspired cuisine for seven nights. Before boarding the ship, accommodations are provided for two evenings at the historic five-star Grand Hôtel Stockholm and post-cruise for one evening at Hotel D’Angleterre in Copenhagen.

The truly unique and enriching itinerary developed by The National WWII Museum provides in-depth exploration of key cities and events in the Baltic which played a key role in shaping the outcome of World War II. With her expertise on Central Europe and the Baltics, Dr. Richie’s presence will lend valuable insights into the region through daily talks and interactions. Guest will gain a deeper understanding of the one-of-a-kind circumstances that Scandinavia and the Baltic countries dealt with in the early years of the war. With brutal dictators in power on both sides, Sweden, Norway, and Finland found themselves trapped in the middle and had to rely on a complex set of negotiations and alliances for survival – and this trip visits many of the areas that were significant during this time.

What makes this voyage most remarkable are the once-in-a-lifetime connections and interactions planned throughout the program. In addition to unprecedented access to items from The National WWII Museum archives and visits to key sites throughout the entire visit, guests have full-time access to Dr. Richie, who personally guides the group through the locations on the itinerary.

Underscoring her expertise in the field, one of Ms. Richie’s most recent works, Warsaw 1944, became the #1 best-selling book in Poland and won the Newsweek Teresa Toranska Prize for Best nonfiction 2014, as well as the Kazimierz Moczarski Prize for Best History Book in Poland 2015.

“From stops like the first capital cities to fall to Nazi Germany in 1940 to where politicians delicately maintained neutrality in the conflict, Tyranny on Two Fronts is truly a behind-the-scenes tour of historic sites with one of the world’s most celebrated authorities on the region and time period.”

Additional highlights of the itinerary include:

• Visiting sites important in the Winter War like St. Petersburg, Russia, the scene of one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history.

• Stopping at the Mannerheim Museum in Helsinki, Finland, which is the home of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, the leader of Finland’s military during World War II and former president of Finland.

• And exploring museums and former prisons in Tallinn, Estonia, where the people were oppressed by two brutal occupations.

For nine nights, from June 6 through 15, 2018, Tyranny on Two Fronts starts at $10,495 per person, based on double occupancy. Pricing includes seven nights aboard Le Soléal megayacht including meals and gratuities; three nights in luxury hotels pre- and post-cruise; scheduled shore excursions; airport transfers; and many additional activities as featured on the full itinerary.

RVPlusYou Launches "How it Works" Video

RV set up at beach sunrise in background over ocean

RV Rental Delivered to Avila Beach, California

RVPlusYou Launches Video to Explain RV Vacation Rentals – No Driving or Towing Required; RV's are Delivered and Set Up at Renter's Camping Destination

RV owners need the income to offset expenses, but they don't want their RV to get banged up. Our delivered RV rental solution solves that problem because renters never have to drive or tow the rig”

— Russ Lovell

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA, USA, February 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — After many requests from customers, RVPlusYou responds by launching a new video that explains how their unique service works. "Delivered RV Rentals is not an easy concept to grasp. It's new, it's different, and it needs to be explained. A video made sense", said Russ Lovell, partner and co-founder of the company.

Most people who think about RV rentals think about Robin Williams in the classic movie, "RV"; a road trip across the country in a big painted box with plenty of mishaps. RVPlusYou hopes people will consider leaving the gas guzzler at home and use cleaner, cheaper transportation to get to their camping destination.

The typical RV Rental listed on the RVPlusYou reservation platform is a few years old, owned and stored by a family who loves their RV, but uses it just 2 to 4 times per year. By sharing the RV, they keep it maintained and ready to go, but the big benefit is extra income, sometimes a lot; up to $12,000 per year. This revenue not only offsets the expense of owning, it puts money in owners pocket. People use that money for their next RV vacation, college for the kids, or to pay off debt.

"People who own an RV are many times conflicted" Lovell says. "RV owners want the income to offset expenses, but they don't want their RV to get banged up, they love their RV. Our delivered RV rental solution solves the damage problem because renters never drive or tow the rig, but just to be sure, we provide a free supplemental protection policy".

After visiting over 50 RV rental operations prior to launch, asking questions and figuring out the pain points of the business, the founders realized that damage is a big problem. 99% of the damage happens when renters are moving the RV. In the busy season, RV rental companies have new renters arriving every week which doesn't leave time for repairs, so having back-up rentals available is a must.

"There is no way to get private owners to share their RV given this high rate of damage, it just doesn't work long term", explained Lovell. "Besides, it's their baby and most RV owners say no to renting it for that reason. We weren't going to get at that privately owned inventory unless we could develop a rental system that solved that problem".

In addition to damage, the miles racked up by renters is typically high which affects depreciation. Because RV owners on RVPlusYou don't deal with the typical RV rental business issues, private party RV owners can charge less. The model is disruptive because having private owners deliver and set up is less expensive overall.

More and more people are learning about delivered RV rentals and equating them to vacation rentals, and why not? They have beds, bath, kitchen, and all the other amenities you'd find at a vacation rental home. The only difference is that the RV can be set up exactly where the renter wants it; campgrounds, events, weddings, festivals, and other private locations.

Given the high year over year growth rates, the company believes they are on the right track. "The growth rate of our privately owed RV rental listings continues to climb and our model is being well received by owners and renters. On top of that, we've only scratched the surface in terms of inventory", said Lovell. "There are approximately 10 million RV's registered in North America, and we know that at least 10% want to earn extra income from their idle asset".

The company is hoping more and more glampers, vacationers, and roadtrippers will continue to take notice of their "no white-knuckle" driving requirement, and consider renting a delivered RV for their next vacation or weekend getaway. Given the rise in interest levels, it looks like hope is becoming reality for this young start up.

Party With a Purpose: Helping Homeless Youth in Los Angeles

It’s been a massively busy year for the matchmakers at Elite Connections International. First, they closed out their very successful year of 2017 with their annual Party With a Purpose. Elite Connections 18th Party With A Purpose
was–Sherri reports; a great success. The matchmakers and their friends hosted one of the best children’s events they’ve held, on December 21st 2017 at SPY (Safe Place For Youth), in Venice, California. Their goal every year is to give each child the best Christmas they’ve ever had. Elite Connections reported that one teen said it was the first Christmas present he’d received since 2005, and that the kid's each received a high-end skateboard or cell phone, with a backpack filled with fabulous items including shoes, clothes, coats and other gifts.

Of the event, Sherri Murphy further states, "Our children’s event was amazing! One boy was in the hospital. I met him through FaceTime. Of the sixteen homeless kids, one was the victim of a hit and run accident. They broke both his legs and he lost a kidney. They stopped and robbed him before they took off. The poor kid! He was so happy to get a phone. We sent him new shoes, a backpack full of great stuff, a coat, and some clothes. Life can really be terrible for some people. One boy said he’d not gotten a present since 2005. Many kids we know are so spoiled–they have no clue. They only see what the other kids in school have. Many kids don’t understand how lucky they are to not have drug-addicted, or alcoholic parents, and have a home. It’s not like you get to choose!" Sherri invites patrons to get involved this year to help more children by calling her at 800-923-4200.

Most Dynamic Women in LA Award

Next, Elite Connections CEO Sherri Murphy and Vice President Tammi Pickel were awarded two of the "Most Dynamic Women in L.A." by Angelino Magazine, which they said was a real honor. When singles in Hollywood or anywhere else in the country for that matter–get lonely and don't know where to turn to, many turn to dating sites online. Yet Sherri Murphy of Elite Connections states, "Our team of matchmakers screen and interview in a way that authenticates prospects, where websites clearly cannot." Fortunately for singles out there, the dating expert to the stars are not just for the rich and famous. Elite Connections serves all types of clientele from the girl next door, to the single mother, or even the successful, seeking bachelor.

Following the award by Angelino Magazine, CEO Sherri Murphy was featured on Dr. Phil, discussing matchmaking and the stress of running a large company, which she reports was really exciting, and a big honor. Sherri states that "Elite Connections makes dating more safe, and easy, proving to be the better alternative than blind date websites that may not screen their users."

Earlier just late last year, Elite Connections own CEO Sherri Murphy and Elite Connections COO Tammi Pickle appeared on Fox News to give some much needed advice to some of America's singles out there. The VIP dating consultants stated, "We enjoyed being on Fox News Channel 5, and Dr. Phil. We want to help inform the public about how to be successful in their dating, and to give them a chance to meet us, and help them find that person they’ve been searching for."

Proving to be the better, safer alternative than blind date websites that do not even meet or screen their users, Elite Connections hand picks each and every client and date, meeting every one in person, and finding each client the very best fit. With this attention to detail and care, it is not that surprising that Elite Connections International have remarkably been in business for nearly twenty-five years.

On Fox News, the mother and daughter matchmaking team of Elite Connections spoke about how to find love, and about the mistakes that many singles often make.

"We meet all of your matches in person, so you are meeting and dating the kind of person that makes sense." Sherri Murphy states, adding, "You have a team of experienced, professional matchmakers who are here to guide the way to that special person your heart longs for."

Sherri Murphy further states, "Our team of matchmakers screen and interview in a way that authenticates prospects where websites clearly cannot. Thanks to our discreet and personal approach, clients bid adieu to blind dates, and benefit from first dates which often lead to amazing relationships." Sherri adds, "And there’s peace of mind in knowing if one match doesn’t spark mutual interest, the next one just might!"

Sherri further says, "We are dedicated to seeking matches that make sense with insightful guidance and personal
coaching every step of the way. If you are interested in finding out more about our Elite matchmaking services, or have any questions, please reach out and speak with one of our professional matchmakers who are here to learn about the match that’s just right for you."
